    Hello everyone

    I've been reading very very much lately, and not doing much because writing and me are not best friends.

    As soon as I understood that I would have to outsource the content I started to have content to post, and so I am starting an amazon site to see how much I can learn about all the things I've been reading here.

    Already have a niche and a lot of content to review as I ordered it from a friend I know IRL.

    I'll try to make this journey updated and with the info I will learn and test.

    What I've done so far
    - Started with a fresh domain
    - Found a niche and did keyword research
    - Outsourced some content
    - Reviewed Some Content to be as my taste
    - Found images to post
    - Created an about us, TOS and Privacy Policy, as well as an Amazon Affiliates

    I'll mostly try to give value in my articles instead of doing hard keyword targeting, as I can see that being more naturally valuable to the user. It doesn't mean I don't keyword target, but I won't worry so much about that.

    And here we go

    Thanks guys, I'll try to welcome you by keeping this thread updated.

    What I have done
    - Setup a theme
    - Downloaded many images to fill in along with the content
    - Reviewed some articles to be at my taste
    - Setup analytics and all the social media
    - Signup in forums from my niche
    - Setup a fake persona with pictures and all
    - Added a ~=2k article, more articles will come soon

    What I'm planning on doing
    I've got some more ideas pop up my head everytime I am going, but most of them is to get people's attention and interest more than raw keyword research.

    I'll then setup a IFTTT and Buffer account so that most of my social media will be automated, as I'll make a separate wordpress category only for images, and i'll schedule posts so that I spend a day a month with this or less:
    wordpress post => fb
    fb => twitter
    fb => pinterest
    fb => Buffer => G+
    fb => Buffer => Instagram

    Most of the content I will promote via social media will be the images and my posts

    Awesome! Hey by the way I clicked onto this thread because I am very interested in affiliate marketing promoting Amazon products. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post someone else's course link here so I will just say I am learning from a course Brent Hale created over at his website complete free and gives every single detail about his method. I'm not entirely sure why he just doesn't make money from it himself but just google "abc incomeaddon" and it should bring up the first result as "affiliate blogger course". It's pretty cool. Anyway I am going to be watching this thread and see what I can learn further from you and whoever else gives tips.

    Sorry mate but I won't go on outside BHW to learn, you learn in here reading the forum and doing what you read.
    Of course most of people want the best content on their websites, but this forum is just straight to the point talk and the big roller members are really good teachers and they like to provide valuable content, as well as many many tricks that even the "newbies" you find here give.

    I really have a huge respect for this forum

    Anyway, to the point:

    What I have done
    - posted 3 articles around 1/2k words each
    - better organized my internal link building
    - posted a big review on a product (around 1k words)

    Questions
    - Can I download or print screen an image from amazon and upload it to my server? I know its agains their TOS, but most people and sites I see have the pictures there and none is penalized... If anyone knows this, I'd like some help here

    What I found
    I noticed my traffic was 0 yet, and just to check went to webmaster's tool and found that none of my links were indexed, and as the old "fetch all as google" wasn't there, I submited the sitemap for index, and then there is an option that says "request index", and so I pressed there and then clicked "index this and all direct links".
    Because it is a sitemap that has all the links I think that is how you do it these days. I'm not sure on if it will indeed index all the pages, but if it doesn't I'll post here the result.

    What I am planning on doing
    Still have to make the pyramid IFTTT network for the social media, but before I want to get my website's content reachable and readable with no empty or unexisting pages


    Cheers

    Have you started LB yet? Social signals and bookmarks will help with indexing and maybe even some traffic.

    Thanks guys, I'll try to keep this updated as much as I can

    No mate, I know I should start as soon as possible, but I want to get good links and for that I am thinking about email outreaching and forum posting. I also don't want to ruin my bounce rate nor time in page for not having the site with articles to post.
    When it hits around 15-20 articles I'll start to hit on links full time, everything I got.
    After that as I said I should start hitting more on social media which I think is the first traffic you should get. Only after I'll rely more on the SERPS.
