    So I started by gettings ~150 clicks per month when I first started my website out of which I got 11 Ordered Items and some of those clicks were from me testing the buttons. I had around 5% conversion on amazon, now for the past 2 months I got a total of 300 Clicks with only 1 completely irrelevant ordered item. I got no idea what may be wrong, traffic is the same.

    Keywords I'm getting traffic from are keywords that start with "best" such as "best .... microwave" etc

    Look at traffic sources. Maybe traffic quality is bad or not from a location which can buy. Do they click your links and goto Amazon site ? compare that too.

    I'm using amazon.com and according to analytics 60% of my traffic is from USA, and yes they're clicking my links, hence why I got over 250 clicks last month and only 1 sale and it was a completely irrelevant item.

    Does your website push for the item to be sold today? since Amazon is only 24 hour cookie you better be making them want to buy it NOW

    pm me your website/skype if you need someone to review and help

    Will send a PM, and I just do a review and add a button so that they can buy from Amazon.


    Thing is that plugin is a bit expensive to me at the moment, if I was already earning nicely with Amazon I'd buy it but the way things are going right now it just doesn't seem to be worth it.

    Nope.

    Yep, traffic is USA.

    Check the members download section. You might find EasyAzon there. I think I saw it there while ago. :)

    Sounds like you need to find a better traffic source. I can't think of any good reason why decent traffic would convert that low after clicking to go to Amazon!

    Well the keywords are always like "best xxx microwave" "best xxx for xxx" (not the actual keywords im targetting) so they should be decent since whoever looks for these keywords intends to buy the items.

    My traffic source is mostly 100% targetted forums and 70% from google

    It is a low conversion rate for Amazon but it can happen. 300 clicks is not a big number to make conclusions. I suggest you to check your products again and promote them a bit more

    It shouldn't matter too much what keywords you're targetting. Maybe you just need a bigger sample size. But if you are getting traffic to Amazon it should be converting unless the traffic is just real low quality.

    Have you tried researching your keywords properly?
