    Hi there.
    I want to thank BHW for all the infos, howtos and all the software thats given here. As you can see this is my first post and its not "hey how do i do this","how many per mount" or other krap like that.
    You can see English is not my mother language and I appologise for future wording mistakes.
    So I was really desperade . I have read tons of threads, valuable info and spoonfed and no result..
    I guess my mistake was I wanted everything to happen overnight.I stayed to 3-4am on the pc searching for something that might work for me. I became a person who goes only to the shop for coffee and cigarettes, ignores his gf requests and lots more bad stuff.I was about 85 kilos , now i am 95 so you know what i mean.One day my father said "come here son" and we talked about life, school (i'm student) and many many stuff and when the conversation was just ending he told me "i just wanted to tell you i'm proud of you"(what the ... i stay about 10 hours a day on my pc doing nothing but sitting on that squeaky chair).And thats the moment i realised i have to do something,I have to push myself hard to accomplish something. So I wanted to take action and started to search for something thats not so blackhat cause it isn't really longterm unless you know what you are doing.

    So what did I do.
    I dont remember how and when but i read something 'bout Amazon. So my brain started to work(mother of god..:yield:) and I came with the idea to create a site with amazon product reviews.
    The idea was to copy product's best review,some picture some specifications and voila perfect content.
    I talked to amazon's support before doin' anything and they said its not a problem to copy the costumer reviews or pictures .Thats very very nice thing to hear.

    So what do I get is the following
    Domain ~5 dallaz/1year
    Hosting 24 dallaz/1year
    Separate machine
    Wordpress
    -Social network autoposter (free version but very nice)
    -1 click wp seo
    -Duplicate posts remover (plugin)
    -Associate Goliath (the most important plugin it fetches content from amazon)
    LicorneAIO
    Nohands SEO

    I can't do SEO but i read about it everyday and i'm starting to get it.Now what i did is - install everything configure social network autoposter(made accounts in almost every social network there is) fetch some categories from amazon with associate goliath and check if there is duplicates.

    Its been 3-4 days since i set everything up and I wanted to be sure that everything is working before I write a thread/journey.

    So by now:
    Have 117 uniques
    25 published reviews
    270 scheduled (and counting)
    37 clicks in Amazon (not bad)

    What i plan to do: (under constant update) (done)(progress)
    Write threads bout my site (backlinks) in forums (with mighty licorne)
    Fix tumblr posting (when i write a revew manually it posts, when its on auto - no posting to tumblr and thats LARGE problem couse of the way you share with people in tumblr)
    Get a new wheel chair :D
    Write imacros for scraping google alerts links.
    Some kind of content spin/rewrite software or hire someone in microworkers/odesk
    Edit permalinks structure

    TIP:This is a journey although it IS method i will not respond to people saying "hey im a newbie can you help me with everything". I WILL help but keep in mind i still stay ~10h a day on pc reading and learning from this great community and I have no time for playing cs and wow.

    Thats for now.
    Thank you for reading.
    Any help/suggestions would be VERY appreciated.
    Cheers.

    i highly doubt it will work. duplicate content guys.... even if you not doing SEO still duplicate.... you wont go far with this. i know amazon inside out so better work a bit on writing good reviews for long term.

    Ok last few days i was very drunk and I couldnt even find the pc.So now I am updating again even if no one is reading replying or even viewing this thread I will continue to update it because this is like notes for me and I may help someone whatever..
    Many new reviews
    Scheduled 500+ adding more
    I'm about to implement product unpack videos to every single product if there is unpack video on youtube
    Fixed permalinks, site look and other stuff. Now the site is looking much better.
    Still 0 commisions but thats ok. I wont give up.
    My sites fan pages on twitter and other social networks are on first page in google but my site isnt in first 10 pages at all... Cant really do SEO but I know how to build backlinks for sure :) thats for now. If i dont succeed, for 30 bucks i have learned A LOT that no one can explain to me in PDFs so i win anyways.

    I am following your thread from the beginning eventhough I have my doubts regarding how automatic things work with AMAZON.

    Anyways, good luck and next time update us with some sale as well ;)

    Hi guys. Last few days I was hard working on the tier2 and tier3. I didnt know that it would be so hard to create something that looks nice. SO
    Created 1 tier2 and 3 tier3 (domain hositng wordpress themes plugins etc)
    Only one tier3 site is finished with 5 posts(quality content, pictures, many costumer reviews, video reviews, seo(as much as I can do it),etc) pointing to tier2 that's empty (didnt realized that it would take me so much time to finish one tier 3). A lot of time took me to set hosting, domains, research and install plugins, themes for it to look great so i guess future tier building would be easier.
    Main site is now second priority as it is fully automated and runs good
    0 sales for now (I dont expect soon cause nothing is finished yet)
    Today I will strugle to finish tier2 and tier3 so I can blast them overnight.
    By now i learned a lot of things like good things are hard and slow to do. Bye will update very soon :)

    Tier 2 & Tier 3 are usual the hardest step because they look useless at the beginning. If you manage to pass over those and remain motived, you are not far from having success with Amazon :)
