    Starting at the end of last month I have been receiving about an extra 200 clicks on my Amazon Associates account which so far has converted into more sales but I don't know where the hell the clicks are coming from.

    I have checked all my websites for activity but I'm baffled and looking at the reports on Amazon there appears to be no way to track by who referred the clicked.

    Am I missing something in the reports?

    You are right.

    There are no ways to track the clicks on amazon.

    They tell you what you sold.... but that is all.

    Do you have any astores on amazon itself... the clicks might come from there.

    How do you know that you are getting 200 extra clicks... what are you using to track the clicks?

    I think amazon show you clucks, just not referer.

    I guess one way to tell would be to disable your amazon ads 1 by 1:)

    You can set up different affiliate ids for each site so you can see which sites are generating the most clicks and conversions.

    I know I'm getting extra clicks because I use tracking ID's and the clicks are from my default tracking ID under my account settings. I also track clickthru's from my sites and it's not matching up (way off)

    Quick update. I found the traffic source and I don't know if I'm correct but I may need to thank No Hands SEO (15 day trial). I had a 6 month domain that I decided to use for testing NHSEO.

    I have the site under on a different host as well as different analytics account. The site is using Heatmap Pro v5 and WP Robot 3.40 with no unique content (just pulling in Amazon products).

    This is bringing over 500+ unique visitors sine early December. Average over 200 clickthru's and wait for it.... 3 total clicks on the adsense ads I have displayed.

    Can't say for sure it was NHSEO but I may end up purchasing a copy.
