    Bad news today, after 180 days amazon closed my account because i didn't realise any sale.
    What they hurt them if the account stayed oppen. Really I'm so sad.
    Anyone happened that to him?

    Well if after 180 days you haven't made a sale then you are doing something very wrong anyway.

    You can apply for another account so no big deal but you may need to look at how you are promoting stuff.

    There are clicks but no sales. And i can't apply for another account because i should start from zero; i'm using products for each article with specific code. If not i must repeat everything and its not easy.:(:(:(

    Point is, if you haven't made any sales after 180 days you did something wrong. How many clicks have you gotten til now?

    Then either what you are promoting is wrong or you are promoting it in the wrong places.

    Look at what you're trying to sell and where you are posting links.

    I'm sure you are not the first person this has happened to it certainly has happened to me and I was a little upset but then I was in your shoes I hadn't made any sales so how could I complain? Maybe I should apply for a new account also because I'm pretty sure I could get sales easier now

    I'm promoting products related to the article, even i'm choosing products of best sellers . You can check my blog and see if you can see something wrong regarding this.

    I'm probably not the best guy to do that, I'm not particularly successful at promoting affiliate products myself but I can make a few sales here and there.

    Maybe your product is highly competitive then. IDK but there's a great thread by @meathead1234 about promoting Amazon products. I'll find the link and post it for you.

    Edit: here it is

    Better get the coffee on, it's a long read but worth it.

    Good luck.

    If you have been getting 1000 clicks a month and not one sale in 6 months then you should treat this as a blessing. Take this time to really look at what you were doing as it's clearly wrong. The do something completely different. Don't waste your time on what you were doing. Treat this a wake up call instead. Read more here and then reapply for a new account. But whatever you do - stop doing what you have been doing.

    You seem very worried about having to change the affiliate ID in each link on your site. How many articles/links do you have?

    If you are hosting the website on some shared hosting or VPS and you have access to the database, you can probably replace all the affiliate IDs with a simple SQL query. Something along the lines of

    Code:
    update wp_posts set post_content = replace(post_content, "tag=oldaffiliateid", "tag=newaffiliateid")
    This will of course depend on the CMS you are using and the names of the tables etc.

    Just sign up for new account and replace your links. It should not take more then one day to do that

    Some rules i already applied, but writing 6000 words per article, it will take from me big investment. means 55$ per article if the blog has 100 articles you can imagine how much the amount
