    Hi,

    I have an amazon autoblog that shows amazon ads... It's pretty new and in 10 days I've received about 700 UVs and still 0 clicks. I've gotten about 3000+ clicks listed under "Other Clicks" and these are usually from bots.

    So I was wondering that maybe the api is not connected properly. So my questions are:

    IF amazon API wasn't connected properly:

    1- Should it even show ads on my site?
    2- Should I get "Other Clicks"

    Let me know..

    I don't know how to check if amazon API connected or not, but if the ads are showing in your website, just copy the ad link and use link checker tool in your amazon affiliate site. It will check if your associate tag is included in the link or not.

    I have amazon autoblog too using wprobot and get 0-1 "product link click" and around 150-200 "other click" daily. From those click I usually get 0-6 orders

    This is screenshot of the order from 31 May:

    I got 7 orders, 0 product link clicks and 203 other clicks. From the orders report, you can see that there are 4 orders from "Items Ordered Through Product Links". It could be from product link clicks from the day before (I got 2 product link clicks on 30 May)
