    Hello,

    I plan to build an Amazon affiliate site. I am german, so I'm thinking about starting the site in german language. There are less searches of course, but also the competition is lower, so I could rank a bigger niche maybe. Also, content creation would be a lot easier as my english is not really the best so I'd have to either outsource the writing part or invest a lot more time in it.

    What are your opinions on this? Are there any disadvantages with creating a site in a language that is not english?

    There is no disadvantage if you make a site in German. but it will get German traffic

    Also external backlinks can come from english websites to your german pages helping you in seo, so it's much easier than in english. Remember you can also hire someone to proof reading your copy and text in english language (seek on fiverr for example). How you're going to build up the website? Any particular wordpress plugin ?

    Since I'm new to affiliate sites, I will just go with a basic approach, so first adding a few information articles with longtail keywords and then just review articles about products in my niche. I don't have any spectacular plugins yet, just WPCache and YoastSEO as this should help with ranking.
