      That is a huge result with the number of hubs you have and time you have been here, you must be over the moon! I bet you are going to have a whale of a time in the run up to Christmas! Holy cow are you going to have a good time then wink

        You're welcome! Don't hold your breath though! The traffic will start coming after a while and with it the clicks.

        I've begun to make a steady few pence per day from adsense, but these are first amazon buys! I'm hoping that with time, traffic and clicks will increase.

            Cheers! I really hope so - I think the trick is just to continue to publish as may hubs as possible

              Yup, minding keywords, writing what you knows best is a plus too..

    Congrats, superwags!  Still waiting for that happy day myself!

    I should probably temper my enthusiasm a bit. The clicks were on completely unrelated items to the hub! I think the buyer just clicked through amazon on my hub and went for something they'd had in mind a while before reading anything I'd written!

    Still, happy days!

      Congratulations!  I wouldn't temper your enthusiasm whatsoever.  As Pandoras Box noted, when you attract visitors and they're given a reason and an opportunity to head on over to Amazon, you never know what may happen.

      My recollection is that another Hubber had noted that one morning, during the Holiday season, someone had bought nearly $2,000.00 worth of unrelated items all captured by his / her tracking ID.

      Two of my better sales came this way as well.  It all helps!

      Congratulations again and cheers to many more sales!!!

        Cheers mate! It was just 3 CDs; I'd have prefered the 5% on a 60" flat screen TV, or - do amazon sel cars?! - a Hummer!

    Congratulations, SW!  I love the unrelated items that people buy.  Sometimes it's the best laugh I get all day - crotchless panties anyone?
