    Hi

    I am still fairly new to IM and like most started down the Adsense route only to find that its not as great as I would have hoped.

    I have 5 sites and a couple of them are product based. So I thought I would look at taking off adsense and trying a amazon store. I have a site that is #4 on google dot com search and is getting about 7+ visitors per day (not masses I know [​IMG] )

    I have seen a few amazon plug in's for WP and quite like the look of WP Zon Builder. With WP Zon builder are products displayed from your local amazon store. Example - I am from the UK and if I place the UK products on, when someone from the US visits would they see the UK version or the US?

    My other question is really for someone that uses amazon aff. I have setup on UK amazon aff but seem to get collecting a few ID's now I have one UK ID and 2 US (all under the same email). Do I only need one ID or should I setup one for each country and each different site I want to put amazon products on?

    Many thanks in advance for your help and advice.

    Try to get more visitors. Traffic is everything. 7uvs a day is nothing. Concentrate on this first. 10000 a day would be more like it. Even if you set up amazon your traffic is far to low and it will take a long time before you make a sale.

    Hey,

    No, a visitor from the US has to click a link to Amazon.com. In other words, if he clicks your UK link you lose your commission. There's a plugin called amazon link localizer that switches your ID's automagically, depending on the location of your visitor. It's free, look it up.

    And one more advice: forget about the wpzon and other plugins. Write your own reviews - it's good for search engines and in context text links are best for conversion.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the advice. I will look at the plug in and thanks for the 2nd bit of advice. I will look into creating my own reviews for the products.

    Many thanks again

    You won't be able to do anything with 7 uniques. You can't even optimize or tell which ads perform better because you don't have a big enough data sample. Try going for 100 uniques at least.
