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.

I see I finally got my first sale the other day. Like most of my other sales I think it came from one of my own sites, a Harry Potter...

Last month, I got 37 clicks with no sales from Amazon. Does anyone have any wisdom about how to increase the conversion rate from Amazon? I mean, they are obviously interested enough in something to click on it, but not enough to buy. I wonder if it's a lot it being January, too.

There is a real need to purge Amazon ads from this site but there is a right way and a wrong way to go about it.Pages that have multiple Amazon ads but get good traffic from search engines are obviously not a problem. Google will have hit them long ago if they were triggering spam filters.What...

Since I've seen you here. One of your support staff found my account, so I retract my other thread. However, I'm still deleting your service off of my websites. Number one, your revenue reporting is AWFUL. The fact that you don't have all-time revenue on your site, or any possible way to access my...
