I have one running within my main website. It's on-topic and has a large selection of products available.

It's been up since day one when Amazon announced the A-stores.

I have an animated button on every page of my sites labeled with a popular phrase to entice users to click and visit the store. The store itself resides within one of my pages and has the look and feel of the website.

As for performance, well, it's done pretty much zero over the last few months. Not sure if I'm promoting it the right way, or if there's too much being shown to users when they get there, or I"m off the mark on the products on the main page - could be any number of things.

I have thought about ditching the store completely, but it's a resource for users - that's how I see it. And if even a few folks visit it, see something they like and it gets them onto something they wanted, it's worthwhile. Sales or not, I see it as one more things my site offers a user.

...though it would be nice if it actually generated some revenue. I'm going to explore things a bit more in the spring as I'm pushing 100,000 visits a month now, so surely there's a way to translate some of that into sales...
