I was really ecstatic last month when someone bought a flat-screen TV through one of my hubs. I don't have any hubs about TVs, but apparently someone was reading a hub, clicked through to amazon, and decided to order a TV.
Sadly, they returned the TV this month. My amazon earnings are now in the negatives!
My revenue has been in the tank (not unexpected, since I'm a new hubber AND it is so soon after the google slap). Never thought I'd see a negative number, though!
Returns always hit you when you least need it, and it always seems to be high value items!
Hopefully, the good times will return!
It's a bummer, but I don't earn very much off the amazon hubs, anyway. That sale was just a lucky break - too bad the person who bought the TV decided they didn't like it!
Fortunately most of my hubs are informational, so I earn more off Adsense. Being new, I don't earn that much, but at least it is more reliable than the amazon stuff!

To my surprise it turned out more than okay. I've been here about a year and recently the older hubs written for Spring and Summer stuff started to produce sales again. Nelle and "her sisters" have written almost 500 hubs in 11 months. And I think I'm completely Hub Obsessed. I have to...

Having only joining this two days ago, all I can say is ... it works. I'm too tired to work out the whys etc, I just know that it does. My traffic has already doubled (more than) and that is, I presume, the point.I never was a hubber that had a thousand views per day but perhaps that's achievable...
