it is still a great feeling to see sales come in, and its even more powerful ( at least to me) when people start telling you or even better yet, others how you helped them overcome something they were struggling with.
Keep going, and you will see it take off more easily. the IM niche is a tough one to crack consistently. focus on providing value and helping people overcome their struggles, and you will see the sales coming in more consistently. don't focus too heavily on Google search for traffic though. focus on just driving traffic through everything you do, and you will see a natural progression of popularity and rankings.
Keep it up, and congrats on the first 2 sales :)

I've started affiliate marketing 4 months ago with my site at [url]OnlineIncomeBulb.com[/url]. I focus on affiliate marketing courses ( at first, I feel a little doubtful because the "make money online" niche is very popular ).
Well, I did all the stuff needed to rank my page on Google, but I'd seen no result, until yesterday.
After checking in ClickBank account ( I haven't done it for a long time ), I found that I've made two sales ( ClickBank didn't inform me about this via emails ! ). I'm so happy.
Honestly, it takes some more time for me to finally kiss goodbye to my daily job and start my career job as indie game designer. But I hope my story will inspire other affiliate marketers.

part of that is just a matter of doing a little thinking through it. if you have Google analytics and Cb tracking in place, you can figure out when the sales came in and where you got traffic from that day. by using tracking ID's you can track where sales came from. I generally us separate tracking IDs for review pages, articles and newsletters. some people go as far as separate ones for each page, but thats a lot of work to set up. I can usually tell by my tracking where the sales came from, by analyzing Google Analytics, figguring out which pages got the traffic that day, and then backtracking to see which products sold that day. knowing what pages got you traffic, and what product was offered on that page, then put it together with which tracking ID the sale came through will help define what is and isn't working.
by doing that, I at least know whether it is articles, reviews, or a newsletter that gave me the sale.
So, say I got a sale 2 days ago for XYZ ebook... I look at the tracking ID's for that ebook and see where the sale came from. say that sale came from an article. I can then look at gooogle analytics and see which articles that had that product promoted actually recieved traffic on the day the sale was made.
doing that you can work out which articles are converting to sales.

Congratulations! You're certainly an inspiration to all of us. :)
Keep in mind what James said about looking at user behavior. It's important to look into Google Analytics and track your sales. Doing so will give you an idea of where your users come from, what pages they look into your site, which pages convert and which don't, etc. There's still much to learn!
Keep us posted! All the best!
