    I'll be checking this thread daily.. subscribing.

    I assume you're using wordpress. If not, then mind sharing what CMS are you using?

    Also, be sure to optimize your theme/design for conversion as well as SEO... many people make the mistake of not optimizing for conversions and when they rank, they change their theme... book, rankings gone for good.

    All the best... you seem to be on you way to success!

    Yes I'm using wordpress. I'm using a plugin that will give me the flexibility of changing the ad position. For amazon I'm posting products reviews with 2 links to the amazon page.

    Nice!
    Make sure you have an optin form on your sidebar too... build your list as much as you can. That would help big time in the long run.
