Newbie here. I have just written my first hub. Before I continue, I want to put ads in place. I started with Amazon. I got the affiliate code and it looks to me that it is in place properly. I got the affiliate code, put it in place. It says it is active. Yet I have visited my hub several times and I don't see any Amazon ads in there. Where is it and how is this supposed to make me money?
You have to add Amazon Modules to your hub manually - they should be relevant to the Hub too, otherwise your hub may be un-published.
The Learning Center is at the foot of this page has lots of helpful topics and videos and the other one that might be useful is FAQ - help button at the top.
I think a good way to start is buy adding Amazon to any products that really do relate directly to the hub, like the drill that works best to make the project, or a book you know of that will give more in depth info on the issue. Then add that near the bottom of the hub, But that is just one approach.
Thanks 2uesday. I have not seen that. All the topics are categorized. I see the topics that I already read through. I am almost there I think, but I see many topics to read through to find my answer.
Perhaps, it is a good thing.
The Selecting of Amazon products can be done in two ways (both methods use the same Amazon capsule but in a slightly different way).
1/ One way - you use a keyword for the products you wish to feature.
2/ The other way you add a product you have found on the Amazon.com site
by using its ASIN code or the model/item number. Scroll down the page
with the item on to find its ASIN code.
The down side of using the easier keyword method of adding Amazon products is that you can end up with products not as relevant as you would want.
It is easy to add Amazon products than it sounds from my explanation, but once you get the first one done you will be fine. Like most things

I am getting lots of clicks, but have only had 1 sale. I've tried posting fewer items. Have also added "pre-sell" text. Is this worth my time?? Looking for advice. Thanks.

I don't think I ever set up Amazon right. I have not made a single cent in the 2 months I've...been here, is this normal? I have through Adsense, so I'm wondering what I've done wrong with Amazon?

I'm thinking of adding Amazon.com capsules to my hubs. Is anybody making money doing this, or am I wasting my time? Please respond ASAP.

I can see contextual advertising being a source of income but wouldn't think that hubs would be making a lot of revenue from ebay and amazon. If people are really making money then perhaps I'll give it a try.

I have never earned a cent from Amazon in 4 months. Not a single cent. Also I see conflicting advice from the experts here, some say dispense with Amazon altogether, others seem to make money from Amazon. So, just before I go and delete the Amazon capsules from all of my hubs, I thought I would at...

I have a hub that isn't really an adsense earner because of the topic, but I have a lot of products I'm showing for the purpose of earning with Amazon, is it best to have a picture of one of the products up at the top where the first adsense ad shows (top right). Currently I have that big adsense...
