    Hey there everyone! Yes, you're right! Its another Amazon Affiliate journey, hopefully it'll be a successful one too!

    Anyways, you may or may not know about the giveaway that was held by randomblackguy, long story short (actually it wasn't a long story to begin with) I got the website. Now lets turn this site into a money maker!

    A little overview of the website

    The website is in a very interesting niche, I have a lot of interest in it but I'll probably outsource the content anyways, because I hate writing. The website already has a decent amount of content on it (about 10k words according to the previous owner, I haven't checked it yet) and is already popping in the SERPs for a few keywords:

    Here's an overview of the ranking position of the keywords in Google and their search volumes:

    The website is based on a very nice, highly brand-able and niche relevant 2-worded domain name, the niche itself has many high priced products so the commissions will be pretty hefty which is awesome.

    Plans

    My plan might change in the future, but for now, I plan on following the BTB's Guide To Silo for the on-page of this website, but the first thing that I'm going to do is re-design the website (its a wordpress-based site so thats not a problem) and swap all the affiliate links to my own, then I'm probably going to do the Silo part. And then I'll fire up my Long Tail Pro and find some nice keywords for this website, I'm sure I'll be able to find some awesome keywords as the niche is fairly untapped. Then of course I'm going to get some content written and put that on the website.

    I don't really plan on turning this website into a large authority website with 100,000+ words of content because I like to get a website to make about $500/month and then let it be a source of passive income and only update it once in a while, while I use its earnings to invest into my bigger projects, but then again, the plan can change depending on how the website turns out to be. So my initial goal is to get this website to start making $500/month. I'm sure its not going to be very hard. I'll also try to get a few social media accounts started for it if I get the chance, but organic traffic is the main focus for now.

    I'll try to hit this target within 2 months. Lets see how it goes :)

    Thanks for the comments guys!

    I've re-designed the website, still got quite a lot of cleaning up to do, there are some small issues with the website due to the theme change (like images not fitting in well etc) which I'll get rid of tomorrow as its pretty late here.

    I still need to add my affiliate links to the website, will probably do that tomorrow too.

    Oh! And I found 10 great keywords with low competition! Got a writer working on a 1500 words article for the website, so thats nice.

    Anyways, will probably update this thread tomorrow with my progress.

    Update:

    Didn't do much since the last update, just cleaned up the site's design a little bit more, still trying to work out the silo, I've found many new good keywords in this niche so I will probably get a bunch of new articles written and do some SEO on them, but right now I'm still waiting on the 1500 words article.

    So yeah, its looking good so far, the niche certainly has some potential, the next step is to just fill the site with a few thousand more words of content.
