I gave up on Amazon about a year ago. Once their aff program turned into an attempt for free advertising on my sites . I got better things to do then trying to promote an aff program that pays 36 cents per month (with more than 2000 clicks per month from my siteÖ..yeah right ). I replaced amazon by ClickBank products. Much better commission rates and much better converting products. Iím using an auto product feed (Adsense type of thing ) to my pages and it works excellent so far. Check it out here http://users.bigpond.net.au/click2/CBprosense/

Arg! I think I've found something that makes Amazon look really bad!! Yesterday I had one item ship through Art.com, yet it generated $40.67 in earnings! The item cost $162.67. If the item had been ordered on Amazon last quarter, it might of generated $10.00 max. When it comes to doing new Amazon stuff, I said Bye-Bye Amazon six months ago!!!!!

I get 30% commission minimum from Art.com but it makes me nowhere near as much as Amazon does. I probably get about 1/10 the sales. Just because it has a much higher commission, doesn't mean you can make as much. At least on my site, anyway.

Nintendo,

Just curious, if you've given up on Amazon, why continue to promote the mod rewrite script that you offer? Isn't it unethical to sell something that you yourself believe is a lost cause?

Just curious.

Because compaired to not using them, I make way more with them. I never stoped using them, just stoped making more Amazon pages! I got them on 12 stores, and four content sites. Some people are still making thousands a quarter with them, on a non-holiday quarter!

How much is 'some traffic'? How are you sending them visitors? If it's just a few links, you'll never send them a lot of traffic unless you get a ton of visitors. Don't dump them until after December 20th.

I think Google Adsense basically took the wind out from AWS's sails. There were so many instances where I would have gone with AWS had Adsense not been around. Only place I'm still using AWS is to display a list of top selling JavaScript books, more as a useful resource than anything else.
