    One of my recent Amazon sales was a 24 pack of ramen noodles.

      They must have left you and came to visit me - I sold 2 12 packs of chips of some kind.

      Funnier (at least to me) is that I recently wrote a hub reviewing a TV wall mount.  It got the expected couple of dozen hubber views, of which one actually produced a sale.  It has not seen a view since then, up until last night.

      If I can convince hubbers to buy, maybe I've got a real winner here! smile

        Sometimes it's easy to figure out what hub a sale might have come from and sometimes it isn't. (At least for me)
        I don't think any of my hubs have featured noodles of any kind-- and I don't know which hub it came from. I also sold three books about Christian Science and I don't have anything related to that in my hubs, so I assume someone can click on a product you have listed, then switch to another thing to buy and you still get credit--right?

          That's exactly right.  I believe that anything put into the shopping basket in 24 hours and bought withing a week (not sure about that, but it's more than a day) or something is ours.

          I'd guess that less than 1/4 of what I sell is something directly from a link I provide.  That means that 3/4 of it are things I can't know which hub produced the original click through - wish I could.

    Times are tough and ramen is cheap!  Maybe you should write a hub with recipes for ramen.

      That's not a bad idea. Ramen and chips, ramen pizza, ramen and oreos...

        Stop!  You're making me ill.  I'm not a fan of Ramen; might as well eat boiled straw.

          Actually, I like ramen now and then. I always buy the chicken flavor, which is silly, because I always throw out the packet of chemicals (that is called flavoring), and add my own seasoning or some v-8 juice.  There is nothing nutritious about the noodles, but it is cheap and quick.
          Darn! Now I have inadvertently disclosed one of my recipes.

      I remember someone hitting the forums complaining that she had sold a bunch of sex toys.  She was horrified and wanted them OFF her list!  Somebody might see that and think she advertised them!

      You never know what someone will purchase. smile

    Ramen noodles, college students love em.  But as an outreach Case Manager, we called them 'crackhead soup'  so it's either college students or...............:0)

      Good idea! I earned enough to buy a couple of packets of ramen.
