Understand here why it is more important to have traffic before linking your products with your affiliate programs. It is necessary to get purchased the product from the number of visitors to your website.
Now think, if you won’t have at least 500 visitors monthly then how will your website or blog earn a commission from the products which you are going to promote.

There are different types of links for different countries. So, here you have to understand that from which country your visitors are coming to your website.
As your visitors will only buy the product which you will show it on your website. Isn’t it? Then you need to focus on a particular country for your affiliate marketing. Don’t think so much about it. But in the beginning, you must sign up using the country from where your visitors are reaching your website.
But after realizing that your visitors are not from a particular country but from many countries like USA, Japan, India and so on. Then you must sign up for all the countries.
You will only be paid commission through the right country locations, which sell the products. Understand it in more detail that if your visitors are from the USA and you have signed up the Amazon Associate for some other country like Japan, then whenever your visitors will come to your website and will buy any product from your link then you will not get the commission.
For that, you will have to sign up for different countries.
so here carefully choose the location.

Simply search the products for which you want to do any kind of review or you may wish to link the product to your website pages or posts. For example, you are writing a post about health and fitness than in this search bar you must search for some products which must be related to your posts.
There are so many options available to do a search for you in an easy way. And even the suggestions are always provided from the Amazon. If you don’t want to search the products by yourself which might be related to your post then simply choose the recommendation option.
