most sales are based of sesseion and financial climate ...
you can go off your head thinking your being skimmed from afflicates go in a mad house suffer from depression be on pills be carefull.
Guys, what kind of links are you using?
I use Native Search ads (great except that they are getting blocked by adblockers in most browsers) and manual, long versions of affiliate links. In November, I had only one day that it was clearly something wrong with the Amazon's reporting and one more day that I wasn't sure.
Other than that, it is going fine....
honestly, I never had an issue with AmazonI've been an Amazon associate for many years now. However, over the last few months, my earnings have plummeted. My traffic numbers and clicks are pretty consistent, however, looking at the reports I rarely see credit for big ticket items anymore (despite those being my target). I am seeing credit for add on items or items you would ONLY buy with big ticket items in the first place (which is why I suspect skimming). I'm also seeing credit for square-trade warranties for example, but not the item they're actually protecting with a warranty. Who buys the warranty for an item without buying the item?
There's a huge thread over here discussing exactly the problem I'm experiencing
Is anybody here also getting the same? This is across all my niches and website types. Conversations have gone down from a consistent 7%+ to 1-2% and it's mostly only low ticket items I'm getting credit for.
I thought I'd put this thread out to see how widespread this is and potentially warn anybody thinking about starting up with Amazon associates. Don't get me wrong, I've had natural dips in conversations / sales in the past. However, this is different and seems more like purposeful skimming.

Why are you using long version links? I only use shortlinks for having a clean look, perhaps that could be something... but i wouldn't think so haha
