    Hi I'm using my Amazon affiliate account to post on twitter and I'm getting really high results but I don't think they are correct at all.

    My stats are as follows for yesterday:
    Direct-Link Clicks 330
    Other Clicks 406
    Total Clicks 736
    But I didn't get any conversions. I really really don't think this is anywhere near the amount of people who clicked through could anybody give me any idea why the rates are so high? Is it bots clicking through or something. Thank you for your time.

    Ask yourself this question:

    If you're browsing Twitter on your iPhone, see a link, and view the amazon product it in your in-app browser, are you really going to instantly purchase it from a crappy browser while you're probably on the toilet, eating lunch, or on the bus?

    Exactly, you aren't ever going to make consistent cash from affiliate sales on 1 large Twitter account, even if you find a good product for your niche.

    It doesn't matter what product they buy, though. If someone you link buys anything on Amazon within a specific amount of time, even if they've closed their browser and come back to it later, you get paid a commission.
