    Default Amazon affiliate: 544 clicks and no items shipped!

    Hi all,
    I felt so bad with Amazon conversion, this month, my Amazon review sites have received 544 clicks to Amazon site but still no sale yet.
    Amazon aff conversion is really bad and suck for me! I also put adsense ads on the review sites but not one adsense click, either!
    Has any one has any experiences to increase Amazon sales, please share your experiences!
    Thanks!

    I had over 5,000 clicks and nothing - if it's from twitter don't depend on it.

    So, you think amazon is stealing your moniez.

    Truth is -it does not matter how many clicks you get, what matters is where are you getting your traffic from. Switch your traffic source. You've successfully found a traffic source that is not profitable.

    Your traffic has issues - like the person above said if its Twitter Traffic then that's what your going to see.

    Landing Page Issue - where your expecting someone to buy something immediately ... conversions lower for those type of sites 1-2%

    Review Site Issue - if its google traffic then this is a red flag that your site is badly set up wrong ... these type of sites should convert around 10-20%

    So its traffic quality or site quality -- there is nothing wrong with Amazon - people trust the name and will buy -- assuming your targeting people looking to buy something.

    Yeah, I must be doing smth wrong here. Maybe the traffic source or maybe my contents. All the traffics I receive from SE only. I review the laptops, notebook and tablets,... In my reviews, I put aff links directly to Amazon stores. I'm affiliate for American Associate Prg so I only credit if the people from USA bought anythings, if they are coming from other countries, I won't receive any credit for that traffic. That is the bad things when doing Amazon aff, I suppose.

    With that many clicks and no sales youre doing something wrong on your site. Amazon is a very trusted name and you should have had a fair amount of sales from that.

    I guess you have bad traffic. I'm using different tracking tag for no US traffic and I can read from my stats that for no US traffic I have 15k clicks and only 8 orders, but for US traffic I have over 11k click and more than 400 orders. So focus on quality targeted traffic, thats the key.

    Probably you are not getting the right targeted traffic.

    January is usually slow but now that slow It's important from where your visitors are coming. If you are promoting the products from AMAZON.com and 70% of the traffic comes from Asia and Europa, such bad results are pretty possible.

    Amazon converts extremely well as long as you are sending targeted US traffic. Just from the way you are talking it sounds like you are not from the US and I can tell you with a fair bit of confidence that you are not getting US traffic. Installing Google Analytics will probably help you figure out how to monitize your site

    Perhaps it's because of the combination of your traffic source, layout, and possibly because you have very high-end items?
