    Have you checked how much of your traffic is from mobile devices? Also, your page now has no sidebar/menu? Only the page itself and then at the bottom related posts? So kinda like an email opt-in page where there is no navigation so the user could only do one thing - insert his/her email (in your case, click the aff link?).

    Thanks!

    Just checked right now, so far this month it is 57% Desktop, 36% Mobile and 6% Tablet.

    You are right. The post pages (where traffic goes) is now like an email opt-in page but the homepage of the website still looks like a wordpress blog.

    Thanks for the answer. Btw aren't you afraid that Amazon might ban your account for having so little "useful" info on the pages (100-200 words)? I have read horror stories where people have lost their accounts and earnings because Amazon, at some random point (even after being paid for months) just bans the account saying that the site offers too little useful info and you can never apply again, FU!

    Also, I bought the $10/month plan of SerpWorx and I was unpleasantly surprised that you can do ONLY 50 searches/day with it. I can't find shit with that little keyword research :S Searched for 3 hours yesterday, best I got was a NA searches/month keyword with buyer intent that had first page where couple of sites were PA 1/DA XX but half of them were still PA 30/DA MORE, some results were forums so I guess that is good.

    Anyways, any tips on how to do the kw research even better? I put my seed keyword in keywordshitter in a form of "picnic tables for". Haven't found a single low comp keyword after 3 hours of research yesterday until SerpWorx told me that I have reached my daily limit :/

    Thanks!

    You need to learn how to use tools like scrapebox. It has all the capabilities to analyze lots of keywords. It's not "push button get results" but it's all there if you learn how to use the tool properly.

    Well.. with SB I can insert like scrape first 10 results for every keyword and then export that list to the bulk DA/PA checker.. but then I would have all the results scrambled together.. no?

    No you will have 10 results for kwd1, 10 for kwd2, etc..AND IN THAT ORDER...Use your imagination as to WHAT you should do with those (hint: there's this cool program called EXCEL!)

    THEN you can take the original kwd list and with excel create a list that looks like this:

    allintitle:"keyword1"
    allintitle:"keyword2"
    etc..

    (That excel program is pretty useful isn't it?)

    Use scrapebox google competition finder and woah.. NOW you have the allintitle of every kwd too...What a concept hey? LOL

    Good luck.

    P.S. I suggest at LEAST 30-40 proxies for scrapebox. buyproxies.org is as good as it gets.

    25th Update
    Month of September
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Thoughts on this month
    Got my referral rate up to 7% for the first time and got the conversion rate up. I also managed to find a set of new long tail keywords that can be monetized through some CPA offers. I ranked one, wrote my sales copy/article and managed to get a sale which was fucking great. With that and the Amazon earnings the site made $400.46 this month. I also managed to find some more keywords that can be monetized through Amazon which is good.

    Plans for October
    My plan for October is to work on the new keywords and to try get the conversion rate up higher through split testing and just general work with sales copy.

    Traffic
    Just started to hit 1000 unique visitors a week.

    Interesting Journey @antonjones
    I started an amazon affiliate only site few months back that is now sitting on 2nd Spot of Google for the main keyword with 800 monthly searches.

    My question to you is -
    For seeing such amazon affiliate earning, your keyword has how many searches per month?
    and for 1 amazon affiliate website how many articles do you normally have on the entire niche site?

    Let me Change my Question slightly, How does the below stats look to you? This is for Sep - Primary keyword is only 800 searches per month, site got roughly 1000 UVs in Sep - I read one of your post about Amazon Native Ads, and realized that they are blocked by Adblocker, So I am removing it and going or Pure Contextual Hyperlink to the amazon page.

    Nope. There are plenty of videos out there though. Search. Or just use it till you learn. Not hard at all.

    I have a contextual hyperlink directly below each Native Ad.

    Looks good, just keep generating more traffic, work on your conversions and watch your money stack up. Simple.
