    Any Amazon Affiliates Here?

    Anyone here use Amazon affiliates as a monetization method? Anyone use them in the past and not like them?

    I love Amazon.... I pretty much use them exclusively.... I've made $10,000+ this quarter (Oct, Nov, and half of Dec.)... granted, it is the holiday season, but I have a pretty good year-round niche, that just happens to do well during the holidays. Most of that money, probably 90%+, is from 1 site... the rest of the sites just do a tiny amount.

    I am a long-term Amazon affiliate. Many of my pages recommend related publications from Amazon.com.

    I'm doing something a bit odd. Instead of using a client-side technology like JavaScript to deliver the ads, I use plain HTML. This makes the ads part of the page and helps me gain long-tail traffic from the search engines. Unfortunately, this approach is manual and very time consuming.

    I've really slowed my investments into the Amazon partnership, as revenue numbers have been very disappointing.

    What do you recommend to help Amazon affiliates improve their sales?

    I also do everything manual... I've yet to find a program/plugin that works great to create the Amazon links I want.... i developed a very primitive php script to pull the image and link, and append my affiliate tag by just entering an ISBN/ASIN number.... definitely saves time, but I prefer the manual approach, because i am a control freak, and want things a certain way.

    The one tip I would give any Amazon affiliate is to add the "buy now" button under any product. I did that, and my conversion rate went from 3.5%ish to 5.25%+, JUST by adding the "buy now" button.

    My "standard" Amazon ads look like the ones on What is the OSI Model?

    Yah, the niches I choose are based around products, or product types, so I present them more blatantly

    How do you avoid Google's jihad against "thin affiliate" sites?
