Amazon Associate Program

    I just joined the amazon affiliate program. I'm curious about the application process.

    I noted two of my live web sites in my application, and 3 or 4 others that I own the domains for, but haven't gone live with.
    SEMrush
    Is this going to be a problem with my application?

    nevetS,

    I was in a similar situation. Amazon approved the application in about 4 days.

    Are you planning on using AWS or linking?

    a little bit of both... linking to start out, but I bought amazon hacks by oreilly so I'm pretty excited about delving into some of the aws stuff. Looking through it looks pretty easy.

    You will find your original application information in Associates Central. If I remember right, Amazon requests that you modify it and resubmit it to add additional sites.

    Also, you can request a separate tracking ID for each site. You will then see separate statisitics for each when you log in. Check out the FAQs for more info.

    Amazon is not Adsense...keep that in mind. It takes a lot more work and traffic to make decent $$ off Amazon, but that's okay, it should be part of your overall marketing package on your site. Good luck.

    Are you looking to offer Amazon's full catalog or something tailored specifically for your sites?

    Well - there's a couple of things I want to do...

    On my personal web site, list books of interest to me for my friends and family to check out and maybe buy.

    On a new web site, list books that are on the topic of weddings, with specific recommendations in a few categories.

    On some of my other sites, list a basic ad with a few on topic books.

    I'm not looking to make a bjillion dollars off of amazon, but I think they can help to provide some good content and maybe I'll get a few clicks here and there to augment my adsense stuff.

    Wow. I was approved already. I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that I already put an ad up on one site.

    Extra bucks are out there to get. If you can build "a better mouse trap" you can get your fair share of it too.

    Not really, in my opinion. I think they would accept anyone non-warez, non-adult, etc

    That's been my experience. I had an application that I didn't even put in the site name correctly for amazon.co.uk and I was still approved.

    Get creative with the way you incorporate them. This isn't perfect, but if you notice on http://www.InvadeCanada.US every time some item is mentioned that could be on Amazon, it links there...

    ok... that invade canada site is funny.

    I had a girlfriend in High School who was canadian - funny enough, she'd been in the States almost her whole life with no plans to return, but her parents refused to give up their citizenship. They always had some concocted story about how us Americans were trying to take over the country or how the NHL refs would refuse to let a canadian team win the Stanley Cup.

    Haven't done amazon much yet. With adsense I get decent money - not a ton - with 2-300 visitors a day.

    affil3000, i run a movie site as you can see and have used Amazon for over 5 years on my sites. I've never made more than $200 a quarter and I've experimented with all sorts of layouts, colors, etc. I've also had thousands upon thousands of traffic on my site and it just does not cut it. Thank god that Adsense came around.

    Amazon is only good as part of your overall revenue scheme.
