    I am hubbing for 6 months, in very first month I sold some products on Amazon.com around $50. Since then I haven’t made any sale. But the month of August was amazing I got around 140 clicks on Amazon products but no sale. The amount of clicks on Amazon products was much greater than Adsense clicks, around 50% greater. I don’t understand why I am getting clicks no sale on Amazon. Is there any use of clicks without any selling? Please help me this regard.

      Here's my theory.  Amazon ads look attractive because of their images, so visitors are tempted to click on them and have a look, even when they're not really interested in buying the item.  So you're always likely to get a lot of unproductive clicks from casual browsers. 

      Adsense ads look more boring, so people tend not to click on them unless they're actually interested.  So you get a higher conversion rate for them.

      I've taken Amazon ads off my Hubs, unless I can find a product that is highly relevant to the subject, because that's the only way to make sales.  You may just have had a lucky streak in your first month.

    Are your Hubs created with the intention of selling?  From what I saw glancing at your profile page, you've not made anything that seems to have a retail focus lately.  Did you use to make Hubs like that? 

    Also, have you taken the bad economy into account?  A lot of people don't have as much money to spend freely anymore so making a sale takes more focused effort.

    I used to have Amazon all over my hubs, but just like you, all clicks and no sale.  I don't have them anymore in any of my hubs.

    Have you tried the ebay affiliate links? I believe they store the cookie for longer maybe you will have more luck with that.
