This week in my B250 Web Business Creation class, we focused on determining our Return On Investment (ROI) and on looking into our ad performance. Along with this, we looked into starting project #4, and our google adwords campaigns were officially started!

However, then I run into the problem of being an affiliate business model through Amazon. Has anyone figured out the best way to track conversions if you’re an affiliate model business owner?

UPDATE: I found a spot on my amazon affiliate account where I can track reports/sales from my affiliate links (currently at $0.00 haha) but I don’t see an option to import this into google adwords.

We also had to work on optimizing our ad performance by looking at keywords and ads and whether or not they were worth running/using.
