    Amazon Underperforming
    Hey guys. I started my Amazon niche site back in June '14 and saw pretty good growth. Things have gone downhill this month and I don't know why because my site is gaining more traffic.

    December '14:
    Profit: $412
    Amazon clicks: 1104
    Conversion: 8.52%

    January '15 (so far)
    Profit: $73
    Amazon Clicks: 848
    Conversion: 2.95%

    I understand that December can maybe be inflated because of people buying gifts. But my site sells items that aren't really 'gift' items and are non-seasonal. I'm using a mix of EasyAzon links and the standard Amazon given affiliate links (for tables). Does anyone have any clues as to potential problems?

    Tables? If you are selling tables - even though they may not be thought of as "gift" items - they are 4th-quarter shopper items for people wanting to make their homes look better for the holidays. I'm not surprised that your conversion % is much higher for December.

    LOL Sorry Bill - I don't mean I'm selling tables. I meant that some product links are located in html tables on the webpage (rows and columns) where I cannot use the EasyAzon links. I appreciate the feedback though.
