    I've wanted to make a small amount of money with Amazon Associates. So, I made an account, found a keyword, created a website with webs, and uploaded a video about my website to YouTube.
    ...The video got 8 views, and the website's dashboard says it gets about 2-5 views a week. The channel I uploaded it to was the one I use alot, so I have 23 subs and 11,000 channel views, but the video only got 8 views! How can I get more traffic to my YouTube, and my website?

    Lets look at it the other way.

    The stuff you are doing seems to not be working.

    With 11k youtube views, you have given it a good go.

    Try something new :)

    I'm not completely sure what you mean by that, can you explain a little further? It's just like any other affiliate site, they get the product/products without the hassle of searching for it, and I get the commission.
    I've tried finding more traffic. I posted some things on Pinterest (Giving me about 7 more views, but no clicks of course)(Yes, I know Pinterest is one of the worst places for traffic), but I need some place that'll give me good traffic. I've been looking into some Sony Vegas effects, and I think that'll make my YouTube videos look more professional. Is there any other site for better traffic? (I don't want to spam on random sites). No, my twitter is NOT useful, I just have it for the heck of it.

    The math doesn't work here. (You can easily end up getting 2 cents a click or even less with Amazon... that's for clicks because of sales, not for each page view on your site. Depends of course on how hot your traffic is to buy on Amazon.) Monetize with other sources (with higher CPM) and get more traffic. You can still use Amazon link units, but don't rely on them as the only way to monetize.

    it's clear that the people than arrives to your site, they are not potentials buyers or they'r not interested to buy what you offer, you should reconsider if you have a good pre-sale speech even you have a good pre-sales video....

    getting more traffic isn't always the solution. try to find content and products that visitors of your site actually want to buy. If you need help, you could post the url and we're happy to give advise

    I posted my website and video about it to Facebook, and it got 10+ website views and 5 clicks!
    Since about half of them clicked, I think it's a good product. Also, if I gave the URL, won't that give away the affiliate? (Even though I hinted it in the website, as people like honesty)
    Also, if I get more clicks, would I get earnings for them? - Sorry, that was a stupid question :p

    Bump. Could I create a new thread about my website in blackhatworld for more traffic? I see something about being allowed to do that in the forum rules, I just want clarification.

    This is my first reply on black hat - I have been having significant loss of traffic on my Amazon store - I know I have traffic and sales but nothing is showing up. I am beginning to worry if people have found ways to hijack other accounts clicks and sales. I have notices a few posts elsewhere where people are getting clicks and sales when they never advertised or when they didn't expect them. For example getting 500 clicks out of the blue regularly - Amazon I believe can be hacked or has people in the inside who are doing something. The loss of clicks is becoming much to prevalent - love Amazon but I think their willingness to send their technical account coding to India for serviceing may be a problem
