    Ive been trying to sell items by Amazon by using their a-store concept, but i havent gotten any sales from it. Do you belive it would be better whit a referal link in post then a store?

    A stores convert at a horrible rate compared to just affiliate links because if you just get them onto the Amazon site, you get a cookie on ever click while you do not get that when they click to visit the Astore. Affiliate links give me a much better conversion rate by nearly double on higher priced items because of that ;)

    Yea I have to say that I have always been very fond of the Amazon Affiliate program and have been surprised by the lack of interest that most have towards it on this forum. Especially during the holidays I saw my conversions around 10% even though I would hardly call my content or site construction very well done considering I am just learning. I just look for around 1,000 monthly visitor long-tail keywords in my niche and write an article about a product that relates to that keyword and I have been pretty successful doing that and am just getting into scaling that up with buying the content and learning how to rank some more competitive keywords with outsourcing a little bit of SEO :)

    Even though you havent gotten many sales from them, I would keep at it and make sure you target keywords that bring US visitors. Good Luck!
