    I haven't had that happen to me before. Check if maybe bots have been eying your listing. Otherwise I'd consider asking amazon lol. It'd be any interesting reply eh? :D:rolleyes:

    That doesn't sound like targeted traffic.
    How are you generating traffic?
    If you are buying traffic then it is most certainly mainly bots or very low value traffic which will not convert.

    I'd be asking your traffic supplier for answers as to just how targeted it is.

    How long are visitors spending on pages ? Bounce rate ?

    It's not a targeted traffic if it doesn't bring sales, looks like either bot traffic or completely non-targeted traffic.

    Traffic comes mainly from facbook fanpage and facebook advertising on relevant fanpages, and bigger traffic comes from twitter profile opened for the blog. Regularly posting to stumbleupon, redit and some other websites. Traffic stats on my blog and on amazon are almost the same about where traffic comes from. Never used bot. Some traffic goes to amazon from the blog, some traffic from twitter and some from facebook. Little traffic comes from stumbleupon but from there were also buyers. Some traffi for hot products comes also from search engines as blog has search engine appearance. Lats months were also just a few sells, some for product with price of over 400 usd, but very little sells on this kind of traffic.. Don't have adsense as they closed my account otherwise for sure would have earnings from adsense. What is best alternative for adsense now days?

    Then maybe it is a site issue. Are you promoting products with ads or reviews?

    Did you believe in your traffic supplier when he said its targeted traffic?

    If you look to monetize not just with products you don't have to work with Adsense and can use any other display or recommendation network.

    promoting with ads, haven't yet with reviews as some sounds crappy, I'm generating traffic, with regular daily advertising so as number of subscribed members is rising the traffic is also rising.

    Then it sounds like a good idea to put ads and monetize with all that traffic you are getting. You may want to adjust site a little to get more profit with this model.

    There's no such thing as alternative - any display network is alternative, there's also no such thing as good network - as if there were, everyone would use that single network. All networks are alternatives and good, find out which one is good for you - you need to try yourself or get advice from someone experienced.

    Actually adsense was good network that all are using ;) but they closed my account..and as traffic is rising, but not the sells so thats why I think to add other networks that are good alternatives and are similar to adsens..

    I'd take time out to check all your links back to Amazon. Even if you're not getting orders for $400 items, you should still pick up other orders.
    One of my sites the other day had a buyer buy sets of power surge protectors, someone else bought some grocer items and another order was for a magazine subscription none of which were in my niche.

    I'm not targeting on niches, I'm posting new products, bestsellers and wish lists, all on autopilot so I have time for making traffic.. and use to have more sells of expensive products then other products.. but no matter that traffic is rising and is quite targeted, sales are not rising..

    What are you blogging about? Is it closely related to the niches you are promoting?

    not blogging in classic way, promoting products on autopilot directly from amazon, then getting traffic from relevant facebook fanpages, twitter, posting on stumbleupon, redit.. traffic is targeted, for example for Christmas period there were selling of iphones, expensive car wheels, some electronics like cameras, television, pc staffs.. but now sells goes down while traffic rise.. blog is about gifts..

    Yes it was (the main word 'was'), but not anymore. Becomes too risky to work just with it and other networks are much less stricter and rates are higher.
