    How much money you make off of amazon is directly related to how much targeted traffic you have. If your site has a high bounce rate, say 75% or higher, do not expect to make very many sales.

    To answer the question, yes, I have heard of people making lots of money from amazon sales.

    There are so many ways that people can make money with Amazon that it would be crazy to try.As a result I do recommend that bloggers start to use Amazon’s Associate Program early. In doing so you’ll be populating your blog with links into the store that may not convert brilliantly early on before you have readers - but which can potentially convert for years to come as your blog grows in popularity.

    The essential point isn't how many of them has a amazon ads.It's the popularity of the site that make them money and i believe more then 80% those new site with amazon ads(whatever ads) doesn't make a dime.

    Are you actually making any money with these sites though Mega ? Ive got a site running an Amazon store, over 3000 uniques on a normal day and over 10,000 on a match day, although its a highly targetted niche the sales are terrible , I might as well just stick 3 adsense ads on an empty page and it would probably make more lol .

    Hi mega,
    Yeah, I would like to know about amazon too. I only heard from people lessons that amazon can give you extra money if you become it's affiliate. Problem is, they themselves never get from amazon! What a mess. So I'm clueless about that.:~

    Yeah ,i agree with the bounce rate.It also depends on the niche that you belong to.some earn more some not.It all about research and study the market demand for the product..

    I just signed up for Amazon Affiliates about two weeks ago and have been planting links throughout my site. This series of post have been a fun read and hopefully helps me avoid some pitfalls.

    My personal experience for my niche (Online Dating), Amazon has returned poor results. I have highly targeted traffic with a bounce rate of 15% with 5k unique per day and I am not making anything worth the advertising space the amazon widget occupies. Even when Amazon advertizes "Dating Books" which are about as relevant as you can get I do not see as many conversions that would warrant the webpage space.

    I would go with Google Adsense as the best way to monetize the revenue per click...I believe Google will be better because it has a wider variety of advertising it can display based on the users entrance keywords and particular search and will therefore yield better results.

    Amazon they are trusted program, but in order to be successful in your marketing niche - you need targeted traffic. And in this case Amazon can't be useful for ALL PRODUCTS.
    If you can get the traffic, you will make the sales!
