    below is the last one month traffic screenshot of my google analytics and I did not receive any sale yet.

    [​IMG]

    i checked links with amazon and they are working, it is showing daily clicks 10-20 on my amazon products.

    All traffic is organic, i am not using any paid traffic.

    But i cant understand they are not buying anything, not even other products.

    Is anyone else facing same problem? what is the problem here?

    Yes, but i think some of them are bot traffic too but my keywords are on second page, lower first page and third page so it must be getting most of organic traffic.

    You can check in google analytics to see exactly where your traffic is coming from

    on your amazon backend do you see any click coming ? usually it tells you to which product eventhough no sale

    Maybe your advertised product is not what they look for, or your traffic is not specific enough, or maybe your KWs are not buyer intent en enough...

    If this month is January then it is normal, especially if you had sales in December. I have a lot of clicks going to Amazon in January but sales are 80% down.

    This happened to me initially when I started seeing traffic coming, although it was around 500 but my keywords were not ranking at all [Mostly on 2nd - 3rd pages].
    Even I got around 10-15 clicks daily without any sale for first month, in the second month I got 1 odd sale which made amazon review my account and finally approve it. I think its normal, did you check the geo of your traffic? Are they all coming from one same place? I remember I had this problem that the whole traffic was from one city which was shady. Now I have few keywords ranking in top10 so I constantly gets sales here and there, I'd say just do your thing and rank your keywords in top 10 and you will get sales eventually.

    What @SkyrocketSEO said above also makes sense, I made a lot of sales in December and is has been dry this month compared to that.

    if you constantly getting 20 clicks daily with no sale thats kinda weird because amzn also give credit eventhough they buy other products (cookied) i was promoting laptop and get sales from very small stuff (less than $1 commission)

    This is what happening with me although my account is already approved by amazon. i think first i should bring my keywords at first page then i might see some sales. my keywords are also on the second and third page, skyrocket's opinion also seems good.

    Thanks.

    Some things I want to point out are:
    • Only 40% of your traffic is American. 373 sessions in a month is barely over 10 per day. That's not much at all. I don't see sales really start pouring on most sites until around 50 unique American visitors/day.
    • If you are only monetizing with American Amazon Aff, then every visitor that isn't American is useless to you. You have to find your true CTR by dividing unique clicks on Amazon by unique American visitors.
    • Google Analytics is garbage. There's some people that know how to use it and make it work, but most don't. Use Statcounter - https://statcounter.com/ Free for 500 hits, then $5/month for 30,000.
    • Those daily 10 -20 clicks might be bots. Again, until you're getting a lot of American traffic in, you shouldn't focus on clicks. Focus on better ranks.

    Personally, my sales for Amazon Aff. is around 50% lower than last month. Only reason why I made the same as December this month is because my clicks and SERPs positions have gotten a lot better.
