    Do you really make some money by placing Amazon adds on your hubs?

    I have been thinking about placing some adds on my hubs, lately.

    Is it worth the effort?

    Only if they're products that people visiting the hub will want to buy. Just throwing random products on the same topic won't generate any sales.

      Yes, I try to put relevant products on there, but so far people haven't clicked on the ads.

      Maybe some products sell more than others. I placed some related to astronomy, a while ago, but nobody clicked on them.

    Almost every day something comes up in Amazon. It cycles because I share the bounty with Hubs. It's not a lot but it's mine. It's fun seeing it each day.

      That is great, to know! I would like to see something coming from the amazon products.

    I think only a few hubbers make money out of this ad. I couldn't get anything so far.

      Me neither. I just have around 3 products in one or two hubs, but I haven´t gotten anything from them, so far.

    I just sold $450 worth of Amazon stuff this month, and got a cut of that. This adds up over time and can definitely double or triple your HP revenue.

      Fantastic! If I could at least double the HP revenue, it would be great!

    I make several hundred dollars a year from my Amazon ads. It depends on the time of year (Christmas generally increases my sales). I also write ebooks and publish them on Amazon and write hubs about them and then link them to Amazon. So I get paid for the link and for the book sold. At this point though, I don't see how hupages actually claims that we make money. It doesn't feel like they are accurate in their money earned figures. I also get paid back for purchases I make online. You can go to this article to see how I do that. … -purchases

      I started placing amazon ads on some of my hubs, hoping to see anything coming from them. What kinds of books do you sell on amazon? I´m interested in that, as well.

      I probably should write more marketing or how to write a Kindle book. (That's in the works.) But my latest book is the poor man's guide to buying a house. … 1_1?ie=UTF

    For me it's hit and miss. All of my hubs have at least one Amazon ad but I rarely get a sale. I make more from the HubPages ad program.

    I think it's my fault though. My hubs don't get the massive traffic because I don't write about popular things. Writing content that consistently draws in the audience that will click and buy? Not my expertise.

    "Is it worth the effort?" It's not a lot of effort for me so I still do it.
