Amazon has performed poorly this holiday season. There are plenty of clicks, but few purchases. eBay is growing ok and Google and HP ads are doing great. Just curious if others having the same experience.
I'm going to be around the same as last year for November - I'm hoping that people are waiting until December to spend - I am seeing good sales on one product though, and as I just found a 'super' niche I'm trying to lever that niche to get me more sales!
I've actually been doing fairly well, but who know how it will pan out compared to last year. Hopefully it will pick up for you, KeithTax. Here's to all of us doing well.
I'm actually the opposite, Keith, in that I have been doing consistently better on Amazon this year than I could ever have dreamed of before. The curious fact is, though, that the purchases are not things which I have actually included on my Hubs or blogs. They are, in fact, in many instances products I have never even heard of, obviously purchased by people entering the Amazon site through one of my links. I can't explain why this sudden upsurge has happened (especially as the products are not ones I have promoted) but obviously I'm not complaining...
I've had similar experiences in the past. What is weird is that I have around the same number of clicks, but significantly fewer sales. Oh, well. eBay is starting to produce (and sell stuff) along with Google and HP ads. I higher than last year as long as you don't count Amazon. Perhaps the law of averages will work out.
I haven't really gotten involved enough with Amazon so far as I really only have one article with amazon links on it. Either way, unless people are looking to buy weird shaped ice cube trays, I'm SOL, haha
Hopefully things pick up for you!
I never really focused on Amazon, and I had a lot of orders last Xmas..but only 1 so far this year..It might because I removed a lot of Amazon capsules

For about 2 weeks now I have been seeing a huge decrease in traffic. I'm not sure of the cause because I've checked and a lot of my hubs still are ranking well with Google but it seems that people just stopped...
