    NOOB ALERT.
    I was wondering, is it possible to set up an ecommerce just with amazon afilliate links?
    Like, setting up a little store page with the products you mention and review in the blog page that acts just as an intermediate between the client and amazon. You would just gain the comission but it would spice up a bit the look of the webpage.
    Is that possible? Or would I be breaking some ancient rules or acting stupidly (this is really probable).

    From my understanding it is definitely possible, but the trick is having enough original unique content to get Amazon to approve your site to start.

    That.
    Because if you don't have enough content they'll reject you. Happened to me once.
    So it is possible, but in SEO aspect I'd say it's way better to have the in-depth product review on the same page as the product. Why would you want to rank the blog page and redirect the traffic from there when you can rank the product itself.

    Maybe you just got lucky I don't know. Just saying it happened to me. I had my store set up, main page had images, pricetags and product names that's all. And they rejected me for thin content and told me to reapply when I have more. They didn't even bother to click on blog from the menu. They would've noticed it's full of posts...anyway I wouldn't risk it again.

    It depends on who reviewed your site over at Amazon. It's a human process. If they think you're gonna spam half the world over, they'll deny it.

    Same with Adsense accounts. I've seen a nice site get refused at Adsense, and if you look around the WWW there are some worthless sites with Adsense all over them. It's not a automatic formula, it really is a human process.

    Dude, just because you have access to the amazon affiliate account doesn't means they approved you. The approval process will be on your first commision.

    I've had loads of payments, i also sold sites on flippa Last year with duplicate content and the people who purchased them had no problem getting approved. all my sales come from social media i don't believe in google.

    Hello! Can I used expired domain for creating affiliate sites to amazon? Or do I need to buy new domain? I am not going to build an ecommerce site, I just want to make the site like a review site and focus with one product or niche per site.

    Which is better a new domain or an expired one?

    Thank you!

    Buying expired domains can be a tricky thing to do - unless you know exactly what to look for. And if you mass 301 all the links to your home page to keep the link juice, Google will treat all of those links as soft 404's - so those links will be worthless.

    IMO, unless you really know what you are doing, you would want to start with a domain that has never been registered before.

    Yes ... before you register, you will need to check whether the domain was registered at any point in the past and was possibly spammed.

    Thank you. My point of choosing expired domains is I am after with its domain metrics and its price. LOL. I can see a lot of cheap expired domains from namecheap.

    I never thought expired domains can possibly be a spammed site, but I guess I already know how to select the good ones.

    I guess I should start my experimentation this week.

    Thank you for your help!!!!!!!

    Same with me. I was surprised when people were saying they had to do "this and that". Maybe they are talking about adsense ?
