    I'm currently in the process of making my first Amazon Affiliate site with WordPress. I have the following questions:

    When publishing articles on my site, should I include the date or switch that option off?

    I've read that an AA site should have 30-40 articles. How many of them should be quality (2,500+ words) articles and how many filler (500 words)?

    I appreciate the help.

    The length of an article does not define its quality. If you have a site that is 30-40 articles, they probably all need to be quality. By that I mean, they each should be able to independently seen as providing value to a reader. Surely you haven't picked a niche so small that you can't write 30-40 decent articles on it?

    If you are setting up an Amazon affiliate website, you should have 30-to 40 or more articles and they should be quality articles. With quality articles i mean content that describes the products you are promoting to the user. You can go with product review articles also, or use price comparison of the products with these articles. However the length of article is not an issue. Quality content that provides clear and precise information to the user always interests users.

    The individual product reviews can be 500 word ones, but you should have a few proper long pieces about the niche overall.

    1. When publishing articles on my site, should I include the date or switch that option off?
    It does not matter, your sitemap probably doing that (last update date) unless you are using Microdata.

    1. AA site should have 30-40 articles
    It's not related with AA, instead related with your SERP. General SERP rules also applied for AA sites.
    Instead "Called to Action" is very important for AA. So must focus on that.
    "Trust" comes with "quality". So there is no alternative for "Quality"

    1. How many of them should be quality (2,500+ words) articles and how many filler (500 words)?
    Look for your competitors average words per page( siteliner ). Passing that will help.
