    Amazon Associates (newbie)!!!
    Hello guys,

    I've just done a course on affiliate marketing in general, I work day time and like to quite my job and start as an affiliate, I chose to work with amazon associates. I have few questions regarding amazon associates in general :

    1) Does ranking on 2nd or 3rd page earn you money (niche site)?

    2) My aim is to earn around $300 to $350 a month so what should be the total monthly searches for all my keywords or how much traffic should my site have to achieve that ?

    3) No matter what product I choose there is already a good niche site, what are the disadvantages with it ?

    Thank you.

    Hi and welcome. We'd like to get to know you better personally before we start talking business. Tell us more about yourself. Here are some suggestions about how to do that.

    Ranking on the 2nd or 3rd page won't earn you much. People rarely make it past the first page of results. Better to rank 1st page on long-tale keywords than to go after the larger words and end up farther back in page ranks.

    There is no easy way to say how many searches you'll need to hit that monetary goal. There are just too many factors involved.

    Yes, the program you've chosen pretty much guarantees that there will be other good sites already created. You'll have a lot more work to try to compete with them unless you can bring an entirely new perspective on something. Even then you'll have to work hard to get traction since they are already established and you are just beginning.
