January Amazon affiliate earnings update 2017

Hi I wanted to provide another update.  For sure it’s only been 3 weeks since the last update, but there’s been a few things happening..

Excitement then disappointment.. then excitement!

After traffic was on the up, I was getting excited then all of a sudden my pages all dipped onto page 10 (position 100+) and all the buzz went with it.

A bit of googling reassured me of the notion in my head that it was simply a case of settling in, and that my site is still new.. and… it takes 6 months to a year to build up “trust”…

For almost 3 weeks the site stayed down in the depths that is until few days ago..

The site has bounced back and some of the pages have hit NICE rankings (for now).. positions 2, 4 and 5   AND this last week this has resulted in 3 sales..  so of course the focus is to keep on building out a proper brand with proper bloody hard work research.

You can see here:

The larger spikes on the right are when things began improving and the two dips after that first big spike are the down times.. and over on the right is where we are now breaking into new territory.

So onwards upwards and keep on keping on..

For me, the key now (which has worked) is to switch off facebook (my biggest issue), pop headphones on with music and knuckle down..

I suggest you do the same to push through problems.
