    Ok i got good WP Amazon plugin in. Built 2 sites so far that look pretty damn good. There not indexed yet (even though both domains are over 8 years old) but Im sure they will be soon

    What im getting it at is HOW much traffic are you pulling in from 1 site to make a decent income from Amazon? With just 4% to start it does not sound like a lot BUT if I can get about 10 good sites going it may be worth it...

    Your view?

    I use Amazon as another way to monetize my blogs (i.e. I have product reviews with links to Amazon product pages...the good thing with Amazon is that is a good starting point, people trust it and they do a good conversion job)...you can fine tune your blog based on the top earning/selling items.

    It all depends on the niche and how many products you'll sell (I've reached up to 7,5 % commission some times).

    Before Amazon canceled my account due to being a California resident:-( I only made money with my amazon sites at Christmas time.

    What I found was that people would go to my sites (which were pretty lame sites) and they would click through to amazon and start doing some Christmas shopping for unrelated products to what I was advertising.

    The moral of this story is: now before Christmas, find a huge traffic keyword with easy competition for any kind of retarded product, then when people land and click through to amazon they probably wont buy the retarded product but they will do their Christmas shopping and you will get a percentage of everything they purchase;-)

    I've found the same thing. The majority of my Amazon income is made up from people purchasing things unrelated to my sites. I can't complain, money is money.
