    - I don't do much keyword research, but I think of what is popular, what people want and what people want to buy. I tried using Google's keyword tool for adwords, but since they made some major changes to it, everything's messed up and it mostly shows the wrong data.

    - I'd suggest to install useless plugins that takes extra load in your site. Here's my active plugins that I'm currently using:

    Akismet
    Auto Terms of Service and Privacy Policy (this is a MUST)
    BackupBuddy
    Google XML Sitemaps v3 for qTranslate
    WordPress SEO (by YOAST)

    WHAT TYPE OF THEME TO USE?

    I've experimented with so many different themes. I also tried moving the sidebar to the left side and main content to the right of the page. This didn't convert much because most people focus on the things that on the left first and then right. So, I tried another theme that has main content on the left and and sidebar on the right. It has LOTS of white spaces, very simple and clean. This is the current theme layout I'm using, and I think these kind of themes convert the most. So, choose the theme that's simple, clean with lots of white spaces and easy to navigate.

    HOW MANY ARTICLES PER DAY?

    As my site is 'news' type of site, my site needs to be updated daily with fresh information. So, I update it daily and you should too because some search engines loves the sites that gives daily fresh information.

    HOW I PROMOTE

    I don't do much promotion. But I use tools to get more retweets, fb share and more Google plus ones. I've ONLY 2 ARTICLES that has amazon affiliate links in it and it get about 4,000 visits daily on each. Sometimes, I lose my rank so the traffic drops by 60 to 70% but when I regain my rankings eventually the traffic becomes constant. I've also been using IMT social bookmark tool. I'm sure it's helping to improve my rankings.

    WHERE'S THE TRAFFIC COMING FROM?

    90% traffic from search engines, 4% from social media sites, and 6% other referral sites.

    THINGS TO BE AVARE OF

    I see lots of people are getting banned from amazon associates simple they didn't read their Operating Agreement (OA). They simply ban you for not following their one simple thing that's mentioned on the OA. For example, you MUST NOT mention the product price in your post. They could BAN YOU if you do this and they don't pay you no matter how much you've earned till now. So, it's worth to spend an hour to read their agreement carefully. Trust me.

    This is the exact step I followed, and THERE'S NO SECRET AT ALL.

    NOW, what you're thinking is "Oh, this is too time consuming and may not worth it". THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I THOUGHT BEFORE I MADE A CENT FROM AMAZON. AND THAT'S WHY I CALLED THIS AN 'ACCIDENTAL FORTUNE'. NOW IT'S BEEN ABOUT 2 MONTHS AND MY TOTAL EARNINGS TILL NOW IS OVER $11,000. SO, GO DON'T WAIT FOR A MIRACLE TO HAPPEN, MAKE THEM HAPPEN YOURSELF!

    Thanks for the tips about making YT videos, Nemanja. I may consider them in future.

    - How many articles you are writing per day?
    - How you promote your articles, social, links, CPC, how many visits you are getting for each article daily on average and is traffic rising over time or is it constant?
    - Is traffic coming only from google organic search or from your subscribers, other sites/referrals?
    - What are some crucial things one need to do (or not to do) in order to make it with amazon in your opinion and based on your experience so far?

    You can even make a little YT video going trough the traffic and amazon reports, so we can get more info on relation between these two, sure you can blur things you don't want us to see.

    Great stuff Anup!

    You are the true example of how actually reading and following few SEO tips + common sense can provide superb results.

    Anup is currently enjoying "Google blessing" , someone is paying hard money for traffic he is making for FREE.
    Anyone can do it (sure, with a little luck), but you just need to actually read and use your common sense.
    I see same problem over and over again for years now.
    People are too damn fast, not having the time to actually read anything and make one step back to see and think about it for a while,
    instead they start doing things the wrong way right away.
    If you want to make it online, you need to know what you are doing and plan your next steps ahead.

    Anup, can you share more info about your social strategies?
    For example are you using some social service for likes/tw/G+ to jump start your social presence,
    or you just publish on your social profiles and people share naturally?
    Any other info/suggestion is welcome(I'm currently making new social and behavioral software, so I'm interested too )

    Hey OP great post. A question on putting the Amazon affiliate link in your site. Do you use the shortened version eg http://amzn.to/UsV73X or do you just use the actual URL they give?
    I'm experimenting with the shortened version at the moment myself.

    Also, regarding Amazon's terms. Do you need to put somewhere on your site that the site is an Amazon site?
    I see this on the footer of some Amazon affiliate sites. It is a must?

    Thanks for your answers.

    Amazon surely gives you good income. But there is tough competition to amazon in india from other sites like flipkart, snapdeal and few other.

    I know I hadn't updated this thread for a while. I apologize. As many of you are aware that Google changes its ranking algorithm most frequently, I have lost my grip.

    To make the long story short, basically two things happened:

    1. My site went out form the first page for a particular keyword.
    2. Some guy literally copied every single thing I'm doing with my site (including themes, posting style and images).

    If you have kept an eye on this thread and followed this thread from the the time I posted, you may have noticed that I removed some of content from couple of post (like earning screenshots, and other infos). All I had to do this because of the reason number 2. I had to leave the competition behind and it seemed that people would continue to copy my entire work and it didn't seem quite right.

    Despite all this, I'll continue to update this thread with all the information you guys require so that you can make most of Amazon.

    Nemanja,

    I was (and currently am) using a social service for some social proof. I sometimes use Pinterest to pin all the images of my posts. Pinterest sends me quite decent traffic. For other social networks, usually I automate everything.

    Real precise I'd say. For instance, if you're trying to promote laptop, then think about what people look into it. You can use Google Keyword Planner to find how popular the certain keyword is and check its potential.

    I use the full version of affiliate link because short version looks unnatural and lowers the trust among visitors.

    I just put the discloser on 'terms' page. If you're really concerned, you can put it on the footer to avoid future disputes.

    You can join affiliate-program.amazon.in to promote products from India. If you want to promote US product, just join with a normal associate account.

    @ Anup, thanks for the update, sorry to hear that someone copied you, but this is the price of success.
    Don't worry about it and continue your path, things will sort out eventually.
