    Hello guys i try to refrain from posting on here asking these questions as i see so many each day.
    I have been working on my blog seriously the last 3 months properly,

    it has been up around 6 months, I am having a little trouble with converting my clicks to sales 90% of my traffic is from Facebook. It could be a problem my products are to high price but not sure. At the moment i have 100 clicks no sales products range from $10 - $150.

    I have been doing SEO for the content i have which is around 20 post's i know i need to add more content frequently to get organic traffic. Currently cant afford anymore content and not enough time to write myself. Really what I am looking for here is maybe someone that has success with amazon affiliate blogs.

    I am feeling a little lost after 6 months with no sales and a decent amount of $$ put into the blog nothing crazy but around $500.

    Any help is much appreciated. sorry for the wall of text :eek:

    I think that you have just answered your own question in regarding to content. 20 Blogs in 6 months won't cut it.
    You just needs to make some time to write at leats 3 blog post a week to get organic traffic and then it should be very targeted.

    And correct me if I'm wrong but did you spend $500 just on content?

    Regarding Facebook: Well in my experience it's not worth the effort unless you spend a shit load of money on advertising.

    You just needs to hang on there until your blog gets some traction and depending on the niche it can sometimes takes up to a year to get recognized.

    You should also check what byuer keywords are ranking the best and then build some links to that keywords.

    I would say yes $500 on content and links at the beginning maybe i did over spend a little on the content, Seems the reason i have not been getting any conversations through is most likely due to the fact that the audience i was targeting does not have official amazon website and i taught my traffic was USA it is my mistake for not checking the traffic.

    What your opinion on just getting cheap content for now but target the keywords i would be using and then later down the line change it to better content, I m not sure if this is possible or will the page have to be indexed again? At the end of the day this is my first so i must remember its all about learning and then applying.
