    Here's my setup:

    MP3 blog - was 2 yrs old PR3 subdomain but I recently transfered it. Needless to say I lost some rankings even with 302s.

    Two days ago I started grabbing MP3s through an affiliate store's API and:
    1. posted each mp3 to the blog, with album cover, description, tracklisting
    2. converted the mp3 to video & upload to youtube
    3. added post url in video description
    4. tweeted the blog post URL to twitter with subgenre hashtags
    5. post has "buy now" affiliate link and "download" - cpa+like

    I posted around 130 mp3s so far and what I noticed was that the posts got indexed in under 2 minutes but got no traffic at all (2-3 uvs maybe). so I switched the link in the tweets with the one from youtube. all youtube videos all together now have 1100+ views which is a little better in terms of views.

    the last 2 days show only a +10 - +20 increase in unique visitors. the tracks I'm promoting are bestsellers. CPA has only made $0,47 and affiliation $0.

    what should I else be doing to up the numbers?

    I'm not sure what you expected. Seems like you haven't done any keyword research.

    Think about this: What do you do yourself when you look for songs either to get them or simply to listen to them? I rarely use Google but rather Youtube.

    There is no keyword research. I expected visits to the blog from youtube description, and viewers on youtube from twitter, google and youtube search.

    And how many times do I need to buy your fiverr service to get from 90UVs to 200? :)

    I broke the 200UVs barrier and it's at a steady pace. They're organic allright but it took one hell of amount of effort (~290 new posts).

    Get backlinks to rank in google. Social bookmarks are great for this kind of deeplinks.
