Hi everyone. I just started here and put Amazon affiliates on my hubs. I already have an account for my blog, however I set up a new tracking ID. The problem is even though I have had over 50 views on my 3 hubs when I go to Amazon I have zero impressions. Any clues as to what is going on? I have triple checked to make sure my ID is correct I have entered here.
I also was wondering how many hubs I should produce before trying to sign up for Adsense?
most likely the views you are seeing are being created by your own editing and writing. Another potential scenario is that your views are all coming from inside of HP so it is unlikely that those readers will click on the ads
Shogun is correct. You might expect 5% of organic viewers to click on a link, and only 10% of those might buy. In other words, less than 1/2 of 1% might actually buy something. Of course, when they DO buy the income is usually much greater than adsense.
Most people seem to find that it takes quite some time to get any clickers on sales hubs. It also usually takes a different kind of hub - one centered and aimed at making sales on a particular product.
Hiya Fineprint, welcome to Hubpages! Shogan is correct. We don't earn by impressions on Amazon. People should actually click on an Amazon link AND buy something for you to earn on Amazon. If someone clicks the Amazon product in your hub but ended buying something else, you still get paid from that purchase. But, they will have to click the Amazon link first.. no clickey and no buyey, no money.
Ok so, impressions doesn't show on my affiliate page like it does on my blog. I was thinking for a second that something was wrong and it hadn't linked my affiliate account to the hubs. I didn't expect to have any clicks yet.
Any advice on how long to wait before I apply for Adsense? Will they approve my account with only 3 hubs?
Seems like there's a range of experiences on that. Not knowing any better, I applied after posting 1 hub and was accepted immediately. However, I've heard others say that you should have at least 3-5 articles before giving it a shot.
For Hubpages, you need to be using the US Amazon affiliate program. I think I went 2 years with my UK account before I stumbled across this little difference
So, I signed up for the US Amazon and luckily hit the Xmas rush.
clicks will show also, not only purchases. Lately clicks have been low for many hubbers.

Hi all. I have set up Amazon Affiliate program on hubpages and featured Amazon products on a number of my hubs.

Don't you just love it when someone buys a $400 camera--- and a case for it, on your Amazon account? I do. I love it every time it happens, even though it has only happened once. It was not even a selling hub-- I don't think. At least I have never written about cameras.
