I keep hearing about something called conversions. What exactly are they?
For websites, conversions usually means how many visitors turn into customers for your product or service. For sites using AdSense, we talk in terms of the click-through-rate (CTR): https://support.google.com/adsense/answer/112025?hl=en
If you are using AdWords to drive traffic to your site, the term 'conversion rate' is used: https://support.google.com/adwords/answer/2684489?hl=en
A conversion can mean a sale, sign up or some other goal achieved in the Internet Marketing world and is a metric often referred to as conversion rate (CR).
Example: You have a Hub with two similar Amazon products, both get clicked on 100 times, from product A you make 5 sales, from product B you make 10 sales.
Your conversion rate on product A is 5%
Your conversion rate on product B is 10%
Marketers will use CR to test and measure the effectiveness of email campaigns, product placement, titles, even colour and font used, Calls To Action (CTA) and to ultimately raise CR.
The way I understand this, a conversion is when someone clicks on an ad in your article. Now I am not sure if a conversion just means clicking on an ad or an actual sale. For adsense, it would probably mean clicking on your ads.

I am wondering, how long I have to wait for the response?Now, I keep quiet about one of my workers waiting...

This is just a quick question that I was sort of curious about because I have not earned anything from Amazon products. I was curious as to how many views you generally receive before you see a purchase from amazon through one of your links?Thanks!

I was extremely excited when I checked my Amazon Associate's page this morning, here's why:I usually check it everyday to see if I got any new clicks, and to see if I finally made my first sale.This morning however, when I checked it, my clicks were up from 8 yesterday, to 12, and those 4 clicks...

I changed over to the HP Amazon program as soon as I could, mainly so I could get paid through paypal rather than by cheque.By now I've had 256 click throughs to Amazon and ………1 item ordered (!!!). That's a conversion rate of less than 0.5%.Before switching my conversion rate was 4.5% (440...
