I have not made many hubs lately, but I also am still working on so many different ideas and such. I always do check Hubpages every day and I note the progress. I'll change a few hubs here and there, but mainly I have just sat and watched my hubs climb over the last few days. This is a guess, but nearly a 20% rise. Not what one would suspect prealgo, nonetheless I am going to continue to keep a very close eye on things for the next couple days.
How about you guys?
Traffic is up, sales are up - Father's Day
As someone that writes mostly sales hubs I can tell you that this is exactly what it is. If you have sales hubs, then you'll be up in traffic a little this week and a lot in sales.
I had two hubs go double blue arrows yesterday, since they were in relatively competitive keywords however, I sincerely doubt it was Google love. Probably picked up a backlink somewhere. Otherwise, I'm seeing about a 10% increase over the last couple weeks.
Yep I do mean double red arrows. Sorry, 24 hours into nicotine withdraw... shouldn't be allowed near a keyboard.
I've heard it helps to smoke a few of those nicotine patches!
LOL, considering licking some at least... can you grind them up and snort them?
My traffic is up but earnings aren't rising accordingly. And if the strange Amazon dealings continue this month I'm thinking of taking off all of the ads. Can I do this by merely deleting my Amazon affiliate code from my account page?
I think that will just leave the HP affiliate link showing 100% of the time.
Strange amazon dealings? As in no Amazon?
1-High priced items ordered and never shipped or returned.
2-No way to check when my Amazon affiliate code is in effect on my hubs.
3-Vastly increased views to best selling hubs but a sudden plunge in the number of the same items which usually sell. In my peak season too.
4-HP's difficult manner in which to check affiliate time share in general.
5-Peak selling time of the day seems to favor HP's Adsense time share.
@Wry Lit--Not if I remove the ads too! But perhaps I'll just relocate the best one's to a more openly honest site anyway. thanks!
My Amazon seems to be tracking fine, however it was not even close to what it was pre-algo.
This is why I am concerned, Mikey. My Amazon sales picked up in March right after the panda slap and was good also in April and May. June sucks, even though my views have increased by at least 1/3 with more clicks.
Someone is making sales, but it isn't me. Too bad we don't know if HP is selling anything on their share of the time on our hubs. I don't want to know how much they've sold, but it would be nice to know if they are experiencing the same sudden drop in sales. I do wish there was someone on staff who was able to actually answer questions about the affiliates on this site.
I know they read our concerns about these things and their silence doesn't bode well for the future here.

I am signed up as an afiliate with amazon.co.uk, but amazon capsules on hubpages always display prices in US dollars. Is this set by hubpages as the default?

I received a notice about being charged to keep my Amazon affiliate program active if I have no sales in 90 days. I'm sure others share this issue. Since I agreed to use Amazon under Hubpages program ID, I do earn more commission but now I may be charged due to my own ID isn't producing income.Is...

I have noticed that upon removing Kontera from my hubs that my AdSense earnings went up. Kontera seemed pretty useless even when I was earning with it because the click were not really all that profitable. One AdSense click seems to be worth more than a Kontera click even when it's like one of the...
