    someone told me amazon associates is a good alternative for adsense. how exactly?

    all amazon associates program seems to be is a re-linking service where you link products for people to buy

    the likelihood that they will buy something from your amazon link is negligible not to mention the time it takes for you to look up these items and fit it into the context of your website.

    how exactly do people make money from amazon associates? im having a hard time understanding or executing it properly.

    I know right, and it's like I'm'a buy from a 2nd rate website. I'm'a go to the actual site of the product or amazon itself if I even do buy something online. I mean you could make the website look as good as you can but still I don't know about buying from something like samsunggalaxyfos dot com instead of going to a verizon store or even samsung.c om. Anyone got any info on how to actually get people, like everyday regular people to buy online from wordpress website's with links to amazon instead of them going to the source? Is it really as simple as (of course with hard work) throwing up some wordpresses like gangsigns lol and iming the crap outta some backlinks and cpa and all of that with spun article's and jacked up product shots from the actual product's site? Seems getto, but I suppose it could work.

    Whoever told you Amazon is alternative for Adsense is complete IDIOT!

    You cant even compare them... you can earn your monthly adsense income with just one affiliate sale on Amazon.
    So if i would be you...i would forget adsense FAST!

    Cheers

    Amazon is not an alternative for adsense but it is another way of making money. You simply advertise amazon products on your site. And if someone buys something from amazon using your link, you make money (4%-7%).

    Now, simply go to amazon and be a partner. It will give you many ads types like widgets, text ads etc. Just grab one and put it on your site.

    You could try infolinks and chitika as adsense alternatives.

    i second what MachineLord said , amazon affiliates program isn't in anyway comparable with adsense, not in the way they work and not the earnings marge either.
    you don't need to dig deep for products to show to your visitors, amazon allows you to link to search result, for instance log into your associate account then type banana shaped tomatos in the search bar then in the top of that results page you will see a small 1cm dark sort of drop menu thing. on the theft of that bar click link to this page. on the next page select how do you want the link to show, banner,text etc... then copy the html code and paste in your page. and Voila you got your 1st affiliate link up and running.

    do you agree with machinelord that amazon is better?

    yes but what im saying is with adsense everything is just there. the ads are constantly refreshing on their own and they are dynamic and relevant to the user. adsense shows the user ads based on their cookie history.

    with amazon im selling them something that 1.) they may not be interested in and 2.) that i would have to spend time searching for and making sure it fits the context of my blog post. 3.) it doesnt refresh itself and it isnt customizeable to the user

    i dont see how amazon would be the superior method here? i also dont see the likelihood of someone buying something from your amazon links because of the facts mentioned above

    what i need is some tips on how to use amazon affiliates correctly

    perhaps you or machinelord can help me with that
