    Hi BHW,

    I made a review website about 2months ago, that was out of SERP for 3 weeks but came back really stronger one week ago. I have on the last week an average of 70 unique visitors/day, with 80% of the traffic coming from google.

    I am monetizing my website with amazon, trying to sell the product I review, however, in the last 7 days I had 0 sales for 121 unique visitors on amazon (with something weird in the amazon report, one day I had 80 unique visitors on amazon when I had like 65 visitors that day, do someone know what this is ?).

    I'm thinking of eventually switching the way I monetize the website, I already have adsense, but it's just a tiny banner on the bottom of the page, originally just for testing purpose (0$ made from adsense because the ads aren't well placed), should I switch from amazon to full adsense ?

    I know Clickbank is great, but I can't find anything that could work with my reviews (they are computer hardware/peripheral related), and I don't know about CJ.

    Any advice will be greatly appreciated :)

    I would try using a banner of Adsense below the title, before the content. Give that a bash and see if your Adsense stats start to improve. Also, do you know what the CPC is for the keyword your targeting is? How about Ad competition?

    Research and see if you can buy the products on your review site somewhere cheaper, maybe they are buying the products you review at a cheaper source?

    The CPC for my main exact keyword is 0.5$.
    What do you mean by ad competition ? Do you mean ad for amazon AND their competition ?

    try full adsense for a week or two and see how much you get per click and then decide if it's worth it or not

    Have you looked to see if the companies that make your products have their own affiliate program? Who knows, it may convert better
