    Wow. Could you be any less help and a bigger douche? Get lost man we dont need your kind here.

    I haven't noticed my amazon clicks going down. Are you getting the same amount of visitors to your site as every other day?

    Well i bet they all shave some more some less.

    But maybe there is different reason for your hits to get lower. Often shaving is not crediting the sale rather than not counting the clicks on pay per sale stuff.

    As kickflip said hows your impressions ? Maybe the ads changed to have some product which does not interest people that much as the ones b4

    Well on the news today they said amazon are down 75% profit wise for this quarter of the financial year which is a lot! So there probably shaving more then usual yes

    I just got 10 items ordered today, normally I get 0 items ordered each day. So I don't think its a shaving issue.

    Go for more affiliate programs such as CPA or even offline sales. Don't restrict yourself in AMAZON ONLY !

    It happens to our 5 sites during about few last weeks. Our own tracking shows that visitors are moving to Amazon and Amazon registers NONE!!! I am talking about clicks. How it can be 2 clicks from 5 sites with decent traffic??? I thought it could be hijacked - aff.links. But after clicking "buy" button we are landing on Amazon product page with our ID in link. Our links are not cloaked.

    Any suggestions??? Looks like we have to open new account and try with cloaked links.

    I know for a fact Amazon shaves. I've had family members/friends make purchases through my link, orders with multiple items, and only half of them showed up. The fact that anything at all showed up from the order shows that the cookie got set correctly. Makes me wonder how many other sales are missing that I don't know about.

    Amazon always does weird thing with the clicks ... someday I had 3 times more unique click than UV on my website (and all my amazon traffic was coming from it)

    Yes, i noticed that sometimes i get insane amounts of clicks compared to the visitors my sites get. This also coincides with a lowered conversion rate. So it might not be shaving, but incorrect tracking of valid clicks.

    yes, the same story happened to many of them in 06 and 07. There are several blogs and more importantly on in digitalpoint which talks about how ebay got rid of those who helped it build customer case in the beginning of their launch...
