    We have all done this...
    You get an AdSense account, you click the ads 2-3 times to see some money roll in, and you stop.
    You see the money in your account, your clicks, etc.

    BUT! What about Amazon?

    So I set up the site, put in the widgets, etc.
    PURPOSELY clicked on an item, didn't buy it, but just clicked.

    My amazon:

    Orders Summary
    Ordered items
    0


    Clicks
    0


    Conversion
    N/A



    Why is clicks still at "0" ?

    Thanks

    Amazon filters your account for your own orders etc - ie you can't order using your own ID - also it's not a live system it only updates once every 24 hours.

    Also some days it under-reports then a few days later it will catch up. So one day you will have 200 clicks and the next day 800 clicks ... you will learn to pick up on this once your traffic and clicks settles into a daily pattern.
