    For those who have their own sites, and have product reviews on the sites, how many pages of product reviews do you have? Is there a certain number of them that is ideal, or not?

    I set up my sites so that the navigation pages across the top each contain a listing of a certain category in my product range. I use the posts for articles about the topic to get traffic.

    I try to list/ review at least 5 products to a page; maybe 300 words each. When I tried reviewing a single product in every post, my visitors seemed to get overwhelmed with the choices and my sales went down.

    I know that method works for some if the categories are well organized. Are you doing Amazon Affiliate?

    Surprisingly, I get more sales-click throughs from one particular page that only has a general link :  See the full listing of best-selling  insert-product-category here.

      I'm using Amazon and Share a Sale.

      I was wondering about covering multiple products in a single post, which is what I tend to do, wasn't sure if it was a good idea or if I should focus on a single product. It's reassuring that you've had success with multiple products in a single post.

        What I do is have individual product reviews and also have a page with the top products in each particular category. That seems to do well. If you're just beginning something go with multiple on a single page.

        I think it depends on the topic, but I've used both methods.  Mostly I list a few well reviewed items on a page.  On one blog I did a post on how to enhance a craft fair booth to make it more appealing like a small retail space.  In that hub I linked to several options for doing this based on what a vendor might be selling etc.  That worked well. 

        Another post I was writing specifically about an earring display I had used with success, so I linked only to the specific item the post was about instead of different variants.

        I think too much on a page can get to looking "spammy" or overwhelm the reader so I tend to limit to the most 5 items a post.  I can always do another similar post with more items... It works ok for me so far, so I'll keep doing it this way I think.

          Thanks, Christin, that makes sense.

    More than half the posts on my belly dance and ballet blogs are product reviews.

      Good to know. I could definitely write some more product reviews then.
