Is anyone making any real money with their e-crater store?
I mean at least $1000 a month?

I'm asking this because I just realized search engines don't recognize inbound linke to e-crater stores - maybe because it's a sub-domain.

Does anyone with an e-crater store have good search engine rankings?

Any 1st pagers?

We'll I have 20 or so inbound links to my e-crater store and none of them show up when I check my inbound links. I know google is funny about links but msn and yahoo also show no links-

How are you checking them to see they are not working?


Where are these links located? Did you look to see if they are clickable?

Hi wholesale to sell,
I'm not making a $1000.00 a month, but we are getting sales.
Our items are showing up on google search also.

I have good sales. People are buying low priced now more than the upper end but they are still buying.

I have great sales but I have six stores. I also work in each of them daily updating listings, changing things and tweaking, and adding a few new items daily. Sales were slow jan but they seem to be picking up. I also go all over the internet and promote my sites at all kinds of blogs, forums, and in all my emails. I also do a regular search engine submission to all the search engines I can find, picking a different one every other day or so to submit to. THat is the only way you will succeed. You only get out of your business what you put into it.

My sales aren't in the 1000's but they are close to half that. It's a process and you learn as you go.

I have great search engine ranking for my ecrater store for certain search terms. I don't make $1000 a month just from ecrater but between here and my etsy shop I made around that much last month, still constantly working on building traffic and sales it doesn't come overnight.

First of all not all backlink checkers are accurate and depending on how frequently the search engines crawl the sites you're getting links from it could take up to a month for a search engine to find those links. Search engines do recognize backlinks to ecrater stores, I use yahoo site explorer to check mine and currently it says I have 1,320 for my store. You need to build more than just 20 backlinks to get good search engine rankings but it's a good start.

I've said it tons of times before
HOW many sales or how much money a store makes is totally in the hands of the store owner.
It depends on what you do to bring in your buyers.
If you think I list they come and buy - well good luck to you anywhere on the internet!

YES, you can make $1000 a month IF you do the work to get the sales.

Between my business partner and I we have a total of 22 different online stores. Our partnership stores easily make over $1000 a month.
BUT we work hard at it!

My sales are really starting to pick up this month. However, almost everything I sell is a luxury item so I can't expect sales to be great in this economic climate. I have noticed that I am getting a lot more traffic to all my stores so perhaps things are looking up.

Nope, I'm not. But I do promote everywhere I can possible think of, am hoping it will eventually pay off.

Yes, I agree with Big & Tall. Ecrater is great but you have to work at it every day. My ecrater sales are slowly increasing, as I learn more about how to promote the store. It surely doesn't happen overnight but it does happen if you are willing to work at it (just like everything else in life pretty much).

Take a lesson from the big boys" like Pepsi.... they get paid not only when you buy a soda.... but half the fast food places you eat at, the profit goes in their pockets.
Same with websites. if I sell ....say jewelry..... on 5 different websites, stores, auction etc... & you have done your promoting... odds are if a customer googles "diamond tennis bracelet" 2 or 3 of your stores show up on page 1 & 2. AND odds are that you are 2 or 3 TIMES likely to get the profit IN YOUR POCKET.

I am no business major but if 3 out of 4 stores in a row are yours..... pretty good odds that YOU will get the customers.

oh.... ps... I'm not saying sell the same things here on ecrater (against the rules) but you can sell the same things here AND on other stores, websites, blogs, auctions, amazon, or wherever. AND divide different products for different stores here.
