Amazon.com Monetization Experiments

Amazon.com Monetization Experiments
Amazon.com has changed and so has my site, maybe me and Amazon.com can work together now. I have tried to use Amazon.com in the past to make money for me to travel. However, I never made diddle, it was an ungodly amount of work with no money at the end. I would have made more money digging ditches.

Maybe Amazon.com has evolved, I know I have, I would suspect they have while I was not watching. I hope they have evolved, I am thinking maybe they have. I am hoping I can utilize their links to make some money.

Who knows, this type of work takes days, months, and years of experimentation. For sure, the only people who can make money from Internet sites are the persistent and anal bunch like me.

I am just giving my hard-core readers a heads up, I am experimenting with Amazon.com. So do not get annoyed, just try to understand. It takes a lot of money to travel the planet perpetually. I am not on vacation, I never go home. I live traveling, I must continually make money or eventually I would need to stop.


I live traveling, I do not live in the USA.

As best I can tell, I am one of the only people on planet earth that actually travels and writes. Most Travel Writers get free vacations given to them, they then suck up to the resort, say all sorts of bull about the resort or tourist destination in return for their free trip.

If they have an office, they are not a traveler… hehehe

This is not me; in fact, I would assume the majority of travel advertisers are scared to death of me. Oops, he said something bad about their moneymaker. I have the luxury to tell the truth, of course, this is my basic nature, and I truly think Travel Writers are the scum of the earth.

I have made a policy; I am not going to dwell on any of the bad features of a product. I love my BlackBerry Storm given to me by Verizon to review. I truly love this baby; however, what is the point in telling you all the shortcomings. We hope these smart phones evolve and I eventually and remove all their shortcomings, nothing is perfect.

Well, Wade, I am experimenting with Amazon.com, I think your idea to live on a boat may very well solve the eternal problem of perpetual travel. “How do I pay for my room?”

I subscribe to a daily Newsletter from ProBlogger.com. I delete about 8 out of ten emails after reading the title, but the two I read is worth the time it takes to delete the 8.

Making Money with Amazon.com

Note, there is a lot more money to be made explaining how to make money, then making or writing original content… so be it.


Sneaky, that link is an Amazon.com link above. I thought it was going to be a banner. they can afford to be brazen, they do not pay me per click. I think they pay only if you buy. Truly they must make money or I do not get paid, I guess I can be very cavalier in how I talk about them.
