    I made a little niche website at gogreendirect.info

    I know a few things to drive some traffic like posting on digg, comments, etc. Have been doing it all by hand.

    the website is just basically amazon affiliate products, epn auctions, as well as adsense and i'm just trying to drive a lot of people to it which is proving to be a bit hard.

    As i said i have been doing it all by hand and am looking for some programs to possibly help, the twitter mass friend adders and posting tools looked intrigueing to me, would these be a good move for trying to get traffic for this website or is there some other things i could buy (not looking to spend like more than 60 on one program)

    you could always try buying traffic like adsense but going green is pretty popular and is probably exspensive to buy traffic for.

    I think your site focus is wrong. You're not going to convert well with just listing the product with its price. It's not going to rank. You need more content. It's about targeted traffic. It'd be best with a "conduit" style site with objective reviews listing the product's specifications, company info, third party reviews from amazon, star ratings.

    Think BANS niche stores.

    I remember seeing this styled CMS over at DP a while back. I think "go green" is too vague. The examples I saw on DP were way more specific. Instead I think you should try something like cheapflourecent*lights*com or xxxxbrandflourecentlightbulbs*com (if there's no trademark infringements). Make the connection with ama*zon more noticeable. Let the consumer know it's safe to buy from you because you use ama*zon. It might be a good idea to lose the dot info. Well, those are the things I'd do if I owned your site. Oh, and lots and lots of relevant backlinks. Good luck.

    Yeah, as mentioned above...

    Your site is nice looking...but needs some good old fashioned:) SEO...you need to get some original content on there, and focus one 1 or 2 at most, keywords...as mentioned, the go green is too vague... you need to really focus your keywords much better...

    don't think the info domain helps either...;)

    the problem is he is using an astore which opens in a frame.

    His site has basically no content because of the astore iframe.

    You might want to look into associate-o-matic.....or another way if you insist on amazon and SEO. Especiallly w/ amazon its VERY hard since even with content you will always have the dupes since they exist on amazon already.

    And..this niche is TOTALLY oversaturated right now and cost per click on adwords are pretty high.

    and just as a side-note..those LED lamps SUCK...i bought some at our local store, they are incredible dim, like a candle. I would need 15 or so to get the same light as i have right now w/ one 50W bulb.

    Hi platinvm,

    How do you get traffic (how many visits per day)?
    Did these 2 sites have been live for a long time?

    I have a site ( new) promoting amazon items ( no picture just the link) in the middle of contents,
    I have got 17 visits yesterday, 6 clicks on the amazon link but 0 conversion.

    Any advice to increase conversion an d traffic are most welcome

    thanks
