    Hey guys,
    This is my second journey (not really a second journey). On my first journey I was using a single authority site to target different products. But most of them told me to focus on a single product and build a site around it. So I will be doing this.

    You can read my old thread here

    What I have done.

    1.I spent 3 days (yes!) and found a good keyword.
    2.Bought a domain -bestkeywordreviews.com
    3. I have a hosting account
    4. Setup the wordpress site.
    5.When I was searching for a good keyword, I found a theme splash used by many niche sites. It looks good to me. So I will be using that theme. Again some member has shared that theme .Here.

    I will go in detail by reporting every single steps.

    About my keyword.

    The main keyword ie, bestproduct has 1300 Monthly US searches.
    product review has 500 searches and there are 6 long tails with around 100 searches per month.
    In google amazon is the first 2 results, There is a hubpages.com page and 2 niche sites with a few back links.

    What I am going to do

    I will be writing the home page bit by bit.
    I will review 8 products first and build some backlinks and then review some more.
    I am targeting 10 posts as the first step.

    As always thanks to Hekke, IndianBill007, Cryogenesis, LostConnection and the members in the amazon affiliate group and others for helping me. :)

    I will not quit amazon affiliate until I see some money.
    Lets do it!

    Good luck OP.

    Not all shared themes are clean, you can scan it for any suspicious links/code.

    Just in time, I'd like to join your journey as well and this is my first attempt on Amazon affiliate site.

    I'm thinking of the keyword: costa sunglasses

    I own an EMD on the above keyword. After reading many places, I'm not sure if this is a right keyword as it is a brand based keyword. Also search volume isn't that huge I guess. Can you help me to see if this is a good keyword or should I find something else?

    Honey, you may want to remove your keyword to avoid people here stealing it and jacking up the competition for you.

    OP, I have a question. Did you mean $200 a month? Or are you actually wanting to make an extra $20 a month? Doesn't matter to me, but if it's a typo you may want to fix that.

    Keep on truckin'. One thing I found is that it's hard at first, but once you get familiar with the process it becomes easier. So it may take you a while your first time, but once you learn what to do and get it down to a formula, the second time won't be so hard. Neither will the third, fourth, etc. It'll take less time too. So you'll be able to duplicate your success as many times as you want. :)

    First of all don't share you keywords in forums and public places. Somebody better than you will take it and do it.
    BTW best costa sunglasses has 210 US seraches which is not that much

    I really meant 20$/month. This site my first website so I don't think I can earn a fortune from this. With the help of God I may earn more than 20$/month.
