I want to talk from my experience and I worked for a large Affiliate SEO Company for over 5 years.

Abel, thanks for the great insight. My one additional thought… I am happy for people who make good money as Amazon affiliates, but I would caution everyone: do not put all your eggs in one basket. If Amazon changes its terms again (like it just did), your business could be ruined. Or if google does an algo update that penalizes your sites, your business could be ruined. My advice: enjoy it while you can… but diversify into multiple income streams, so if you income stream dies overnight, you can survive…

I do like the Amazon program, yes they did drop there US commissions by over half at the start of lockdown, the UK never got cut. I know a lot of people that went to different programs but they all say their conversions dropped, that’s if they got any at all, the point being there is that people seem to trust Amazon a lot more then others.
