My first sale. I'm over the moon.

I have been trying to make money from Amazon since March. Everything was going well until my site was very badly smashed by the Penguin update. My site completely disappeared on the SERPs.
I made another website. I completely forgot the old one and focused on the new one.
However, when I checked my stats yesterday,I realized that my old site came back mysteriously, even to a better position.
The same day I made two sales and got $13.50 commission. The second sale is a T-shirt which has nothing to do with my niche.

I'm very happy...

Thanks to all warriors who have borne to answer all of my tiresome questions for months

      Congrats on your first sale. Nice attitude you had there when your first site got hit by Penguin. Keep on moving..that the spirit.

      Now..all you have to do is replicate and scale up the method that you use to make that first sale.

    Congrats on the sale! So, after all, there is life after the Penguin!
    You said you did nothing to the ald website and it just recovered by itself?

      I did nothing to recover my site. Actually, I was very hopeless about it.

    That's the best part about Amazon. At times people go there looking for something and end up buying something else that attracted them on Amazon.

    Well done Yalcin,

    it's a great feeling when you make your first sale! I had a similar experience with one of my Amazon sites it made a sale in the first 10 days on a product that cost $420, I couldn't believe it, I thought it would take months to get found.

    im late! congrats to you my friend! I know that feeling! I bet that was the best $13.50 you ever got! youll never forget it! use that as motivation man! lots of people quit within 6 months, possibly sooner. Lots of people I know on the forum who made it say that it was that 1st $2 or $50 that kept them going! You know what motivated me? I kept video blogs of my progress on my cell phone, I would on my spare time like record myself saying how my project is going etc. And it really helped I recorded when I got scammed by buying fake traffic, from last year all the way up to now, about to have a site rank number one for a good volume keyword organicly. Thats an achivement in my book as most ppl would of quite after they felt scammed. Remember , you will fail many times my friend from here on out still. LOOOOOVE failure. Because when you learn from it you will Propose and Marry for the rewards after!!!!! Also I learned to not beat yourself up man. Lets say you had to write an article and you only wrote few sentences. After 1 hr has passed take a break or continue the next day. At least you did SOME work. Do micro successes, which will remove analysis paralisis syndrom. Now I get more work done in 1 hour then if I spent 7 hours a day lol. That overwelming feeling is gone! next site you work on. if you get tired and want to rest, just do that! and Feel good for what you done today. If you do that you wont feel like your doing bad and your levels of certainty will get stronger. Thats how we get things done! Certainty! so congrats and continue to be certain with yourself and your work!

    oh and my 1st sale was $53 dollors (yep I recorded on phone too!) from the lotto program from click bank. I laughed that someone actually bought it. Thats when I thought if theres a need something focus on getting it to them= $ Just be legit!
