    I started a niche site Amazon affiliate since Jan, getting some contents and have about 4-5 PBN sites to it.

    but I've been very busy with my real life since, havent much time to add more PBN or backlinks to it.

    Althought there're 2-4 small keywords (about 300-500 US searchs per month) rank in top 15 or 20. but the site are not getting any traffics at all till now. Only 100 organic searchs in 7 days. In 6 months and no sale.

    Should I continue this site this niche, or sell it and move on to another niche?

    I still have some posts still not posted and 1-2 domains still not filled up. I just fill bad about the money I spent :(.

    I would try to get it to the top 5. If there are no conversions, I'd suggest editing your article and add more call to actions.
    If it doesn't work, I'll try to see how many clicks I get. Don't give up until you are sure that you can't make money

    Hi thanks all.
    I just dont know if in 6 months I couldnt get any sale, then I can re-apply to Amazon affilate after that?

    and there're slight worry that my products I choose to promote the price are >500$ dont know if anyone will buy it.

    Leaving this niche is not a good choice,wait for sometime,create more back links to your site with a quality content.

    Keep tracking your site and find what's the need of visitors and gladly resolve it.

    Create more number of keywords that could increase your site traffic.

    Promote your product using social media site,then you have an increase in your sale.

    I would suggest you to continue with this niche. Since it already in good position, you can add some keywords, update new articles, build some backlinks and promote on social media. This will help you lot to bring some good sort of $$$.

    It doesn't matter price of the product you choose, however you are not going to sell them as an affiliate, you just bring the leads and thats it. dont mind the prices and all, you lose nothing of keeping this, but you would get profit out of this one day for sure. just dont worry not even slightly lol. :) keep it up and re-apply to amazon..

    Don't give up, continue to build more links and write articles. It will rank on first page eventually, because the site will age and Google love it.

    Not much point in switchinv to another niche and starting a new website if you don't have enough time to build up the current one.

    100 visitors from organic searches in 7 days is not that bad. You just have to figure out why it doesn't convert to a sale. Are your buttons "clickbaiting" enough?

    oh man.

    oy. I just read my first post I was mistaken. 100 organic searchs in 30 days :((, not 7 days.
    Now all of you must think it is bad :(.

    Stop relying on Google for traffic.

    Also remember that the niche is generalized than the products themselves. So if you have a site targeted for a specific niche, and all your backlinks, contents, etc. are relevant to the niche, then you don't need to abandon all your efforts if a particular product doesn't perform well.

    For instance, say you've been promoting a 4-slice toaster and that is what everything about your site, pbns, etc. have been targeted at. But you find that the specific 4-slice toaster you've been promoting on Amazon just isn't converting at all. Well then you have options to find a different 4-slice toaster on amazon to promote. One that might have a better conversion rate. Or even find a 4-slice toaster for sale somewhere else.

    You could even look at how generalized the niche is and pull back to any toaster instead of just a four slice toaster, or possibly even other cooking appliances that are still closely related within the same niche. In doing so you can do quite a bit of changing, without ever abandoning the previous work you've done.

    That's actually the point of finding good niches... you're never committed to just a single product. You build up a promo website, and then if you ever need to you can change the specific products you're promoting without losing any of the work done in building up the website and promotions.

    You can even set up multiple pages on your website to split test which products might perform the best. But rarely do you actually need to abandon all you're previous efforts completely.

    If you are ranking in the 15-20 range, almost no visitors isn't a surprise.

    It's all about page 1, at least. It's where all the traffic is. At #5 for example you barely get 20% of the visitors #1 gets. Even #2 only gets about half of the visitors #1 gets. It's all about these top rankings, never be satisfied with medicore page 1 rankings or even page 2 or 3. Page 2 gets a few lost visitors, Page 3 is pretty much like page 30. Most people don't even know that there is more than 1 results page.

    Before you start touching different niches or tougher niches, try to push this baby to the top and learn from it.

    You have to build the site up further to see results.

    If I were you, I will continue building the site until I get to Page 1 (Preferably, top 3). That is where the money at.
    Also, if you don't want to, you can sale it off or JV with someone who will put in the time to take the site to the next level.

    Or

    You can give it to for FREE to someone who needs it...
