    You have the same traffic and clicks but are you meeting the same numbers and raising your tier up - like are you ending up at the same percentage commission each month? When I did it awhile ago I could have the same traffic/clicks/purchase numbers but it depended on what I was linking to.. around the holidays my commissions went way up with toys etc.. and the rest of the year they averaged out with some spikes but the devil was always in the details.

    Same thing happened to multiple online projects of mine. I wonder if this is one of those periods when people are spending less time online (maybe involved in outside activities, or too much work because it's the beginning of the fiscal year etc).

    I had the same problem. Reinserting TP comparison tables above-the-fold corrected it.

    Examine the 'daily trends' and 'link type' reports. Find if your unique visitors and product clicks are down. Try ways to increase them.

    Check the trend of your niche/niches. My earnings are usually the lowest in October and January.

    To answer you question, yes I think it's normal to see to see some decrease in earnings for some of the months.

    Yes I am sure that this has a lot to do with it. I bet in a month or two, sales will really be going up for certain things!

    I don't qualify as having done it for years but I did it for a few years back in 2011 plus I am a mom who shops on Amazon. Right now I am looking at gifts, adding them to wishlists and I will start buying in November so if I see something on a website I will click through but not buy until later.

    Depending on your niche.....very possible the demand is only seasonal, increase during holiday season and trickles for the rest of the year.
