    I had my last amazon sale in January this year and nothing for 3 months of February, March and April. Finally this month I have sold 3 items on Amazon and made some money. I think this is encouraging. What about others, Are you seeing any improvement in Amazon sales this month?

    Nope, since Panda my Amazon has tanked. In Dec/Jan I was averaging 50-100 sales a month, now I'm lucky to get 20-30.

      Wry, was it you speculating that HPads might hurt Amazon?  If so, did you ever come to a conclusion?

        Nope that wasn't me. I personally think the traffic loss and the fact that so many of my Amazon hubs got unpublished at various stages impacted me more than the HP adverts. Then again who knows. It's all speculation at this point.

          I agree with you, although none of mine got unpublished.  My decent sales continued for a month after turning HPads on anyway, so I've put it down to loss of traffic.  Particularly traffic to sales hubs; that seems nearly nonexistent now.

    Nope.  Feb and even march were good, with around 30 or so sales.  April about 10 and 6 so far this month.

    Good for you Sid!  I was having a storming month on Amazon in February, but it has slowed right down since then.  But it is my product hubs that have taken the biggest hit traffic wise

    Yeah congratulations Sid!

    My Amazon seems to have picked up a bit this month - 100 sales so far.

    Congratulations Sid. I had a few but not too many since the change. However, I am getting a few clicks but my click thru rate is poor at the moment. I believe it will get better in time.

    Congrats! I actually stopped posting amazon products on my hubs a little bit ago. After reading this, I think I may go back and post some products on my newer hubs. Thanks!
