Recently I have shared my 6 month journey with Amazon affiliate programs, Good news is that I have made $150+ USD from amazon associate programs and my efforts are on the right way.This is the screenshot of my last 6 month earning from amazon and interesting thing is that, it took no time to make last 150 USD. But making very first 27.81 USD was very hard but after that, reaching to 177.81 USD was not hard.
I have been making on an average 50+ USD per month from amazon associates without any efforts now. But the time and effort I made during those month, that I would like to share in this post. So if you are thinking to dive into affiliate marketing, you can use my experience of 6 month and you can that time that I already spent.
Niche Selection Is Crucial
Very first thing I have learned is choosing right niche to promote right marketing products. Because I was blogging on hubpages using my amazon affiliate links, from there I was getting too many affiliate link clicks but purchase was not done. No income was coming from my affiliate links published on hubpages.
After that, I have analysed that, there is something that is missing. I have another blog on android niche, I thought to start reviewing smartphone on my blog along with my amazon affiliate links and that worked effectively.
Implement I did was targeted physical product focused niches and keywords. I use premium SEOPressor WP Plugin to find LSI keyword for the products.It helped me to doubled my blog’s traffic using targeted LSI keywords. Now my android niche blog is working perfectly with amazon affiliate links and generating sales each day.
Money is inside Text Link – Don’t sell it
This is another thing that every blogger should consider. Giving text link to your affiliate link from your article would redirect your readers to affiliate sales page. If you are selling text link from your blog, it would give one time earning, but if you add affiliate links in your article, it would give you life time revenue.
I have also stopped selling links from my blog. Because I know the power of affiliate conversation and earning. I would rather prefer to add affiliate link instead of selling text links from my blog.
Affiliate Links SEO : Well, If you are adding affiliate links to your blog, you can give no-follow attribute to it for better SEO. You can also give it rel=external attribute to maintain bounce ratio of your blog.

I have seen some of product that I have never wrote about, gets purchased.Even those products purchased was never referred by me got purchased.
