    Start with more traffic. How many visited your site vs visited your links?

    6% conversion rate isn't bad at all, you just need to send more than 32.

    Conversions are okay.
    I get anywhere from 4-5% to 20+%...
    but it varies.

    I know it looks like you are doing bad... but you are not.

    You are actually doing okay.

    From 32 visitors if you can get 2 sales that is more than ok, that shower that your page is good, the next step is just to scale the traffic. With those stats, if you got 1k visits you should get around 60 sales if my maths is right, its late here lol so that is something to aim for, don't give up!

    It depends on Your niche. I have low cost essentials which has 15% conversions where as other sites with high end goods only 3% conversions.

    Patience, once more of your posts become indexed and ranked yo'll get more targeted traffic. Everyone is suggesting more traffic, but that's the not case, the more targeted traffic you recieve can help with your conversions. I had one site get 50 visitors and 10 orders vs another site that gets 300+ daily but 0-1 orders. And you will also notice that some of the purchased products your not even promoting, and you can credit that to your cookies.

    Get some Press releases and niche related videos flying into the blogosphere, that should help bring in some targeted traffic.

    Thanks you so much. I think targeted traffic is my root cause. The click is increasing but conversion isn't change. Now have 53 clicks but still 2 orders. Have some thing wrong or i make a big mistakes?

    Just for future reference, don't reveal your niche on here publicly. There are poachers that will barge in on your territory.

    No problem. You could also research some exact match domains with high monthly searches related to your niche and then forward those domains to your money site. That should also bring in some more targeted traffic.

    No, sorry mate, i'm too much of a control freak and do all my own backlinking (so far, anyway,lol). I'm sure people can chime in for good services.

    Above you in the SERPS
    I have currently a 4% overall conversion rate with Amazon and I believe that is great compared with other affiliate programs I am using, some of my amazon product sites have even a up to 15% conversion rate, just send more targeted traffic to amazon and you'll bank nicely :)
