after 30 weeks and 468 hubs i had just about given up any hope of making any money on my amazon affiliate ads,infact a few months ago i stopped adding amazon capsules to my hubs,today i will need to revise that because i got a sale from one of my older ads and recieved a commision of $0.60 in my amazon account,maybe like adsense it takes 1 click and 1 sale to start the ball rolling or just maybe it was a fluke but i will add some to future hubs and see what happens all i need now is someone to buy from one of my ebay ads and all 3 of my affiliate accounts will be earning.....jimmy
I've had long experience with Amazon, 7 or 8 years? Sent a hell of a lot of traffic their way, and have had very little in return in the way of commissions.
Mind you the traffic was quality too.
But that has changed now. Not for me on Hubpages... YET. I'm finding success with Amazon product placement at another site. It's still early days but I'm very happy with the way it's going. And I hope to continue the tradition here at HubPages.
So long as the products are complementary to the content of the page there's no need to worry about what people might think. It can just sit there until the right person comes along and finds that they need that product in their life and click on the link to buy it.
Do you mind sharing with us the site where you have success with Amazon affiliate selling? Thanks.
I added Amazon links but no ads are showing, also Ebay Ads, can you guys helped. I followed every rule in the HubPages, but doesn't show at all.
From my experience, Amazon works best when it's connected to a review or product comparison. Since the people have shown up with the intent on making a purchase, it's easy to get them to go the extra step. As for HubPages, I don't write product reviews here so my Amazon earnings have been a bit like yours, only a few dollars. My hub about bird control has gotten the most action I suppose because it's closest to a product review. Also answering questions with a link to an amazon product that can "help" worked for me in one case.
With that said, don't expect much better than 2% of the people you send there to actually buy anything. Most people just "shop'.
I don't know which hubs they were, but one or two dinged Amazon a couple weeks ago for some sales. I agree on the complimentary part. It seems to me that products with some connection to the hub topic should do fine.
At the very least they should do as well as the ads, right?
Now, what I'm waiting for is someone to win an eBay auction for one of the fine automobiles advertised on my Corvette hubs. Oh yeah!

Amazon changed their affiliate program yesterday by cutting the payout for most affiliates by half or more. Has HubPages addressed how these changes will affect content providers here?
