    what? are those clicks targeted or you're just throwing your links everywhere? if they're targeted than this is extremely bad.

    I have 115k pinterest followers which in a way are target to women, mainly targeted gifts for men over christmas and valentines days gifts after christmas.

    Yes if the visitors are bots or the visitors are from places they even can buy from amazon.

    Same with me. After I looking from my script. I found clicking by bot engine when scrapping me website.
    that click cause of affiliate tag when I use RSS from amazon.
    I have trial with special tracking ID to all my scrapping rss (best seller, top seller, etc) from amazon

    I got only two sales and all were clicks. I suggest try to place adsense and see if they can convert into $$ as your traffic may be frequently visited by same people.
    If they real search people then sales will appear in reports.

    Maybe your posts are attracting mostly "window shoppers". Can you provide an example of a popular post?

    I've just done 5k from social media and didn't get a single sale. So I'd vote yes, its normal unfortunately.

    It's possible, but if the clicks are from real people those results are really terrible.

    People don't visit Pinterest or Facebook/Twitter on a buying mood. So your conversation rate is unfortunate but normal. I don't know your niche, but have you ever considered to send traffic to a better optimized sell page/opt-in page like Clickbank, CJ etc?

    Do You have landing page? Because if You put link in your social profiles directly, it wont work.

    I usually get 3-5%. Is it normal? Yes. Every website is different. Is it good? No. I'm guessing it's bot traffic. Check your analytics...
