    Hello, friends!

    Someone here making money using Amazon Affiliate?
    How much do you make per month?

    I would like to try something new, so I need some motivation. It's worth to build a site monetized by Amazon Affiliate (+Adsense if I can both)?

    I'm in the same boat. I know there are tons of people making money on it; my question is had the train passed? Is there still room for new comers ? Looking forward to seeing what the community has to say about it

    It's definitely harder but there are still niches. I made my first amazon website last week and everything's going alright.
    Have 2 website in my competition, but my content and website layout is MILES ahead of theirs and i'm sure i will be on top when my backlinks kick in.

    Spend a lot of time finding good niches, that's 90% work in my opinion.

    Don't mix Adsense and Amazon, you'll get pennies from Adsense, when you could be making nickels with Amazon.

    Yes, Amazon sites are still viable, but you need to get creative with them, don't just think you can slap up 50 review articles and a 4,000 word guide and be taking in cash.

    I am currently building a site around Amazon affiliate, that also has a section for drop-shipping, and a few affiliate offers, when relevant. I don't do reviews, instead I am making instructional guides to solve problems and offer links to the items to complete the project. My goal is 100 articles before I start hardcore link building, but in the mean time, I am nurturing my social media accounts for traffic beyond the SERPs.

    Hi, questions to ask.
    Will it be leave it alone site once you finish the articles and link building?
    I have an idea of building website for a certain niche product from amazon. Add videos, Q&A and informative articles.
    You know for some amazon products, they can't keep on adding new info or stuff in them. So was wondering if it will be leave it along site once your site is done.

    Thanks

    Don't build a site so narrowed.
    Instead, build your site up around the first niche, then branch out to related niches.
    First niche: squirrel proof bird feeders(shopping for some right now actually)
    Build everything you can about them, videos(including funny videos about squirrel fails), memes, FAQs, tutorials, top 10 under x, etc...
    Now, once you feel you have all you can, think of the next logical thing someone might shop for...BIRDSEED!
    Now add the niche birdseed, write about what seeds attract what birds, tutorials on mixing your own(links to Amazon bulk seeds for the mix).
    Again, once you feel you have done everything in that niche, move on to the next logical step.

    Make sure your site is a brand, not exact match.

    I've got one, but I've run into some problems. My website was improving in the SERPs every single day, ranking for new keywords every week, and then suddenly my website stopped ranking for almost all of the keywords, that it had ranked for in numerous weeks.
    I didn't change anything on the website, no bad backlinks or anything like that. Does anyone know what might have happened?

    One thing I recently found out how to earn easy amazon affiliate money is to make a big amazon review group. Make it huge, or buy a huge one from someone. When sellers give you the codes for discounts, post the link with ur affiliate id in it. It will be less because of the discount but if you post 50 items in a day, lets say 10 codes for each item, that 500 sales for your commission. Even if you only make 10-20 cents per sale, thats a good load of cash per day for just posting the links and getting codes from the sellers. Trust me if you check out vipon and other review sites you will find deals that hundreds and thousands of people will buy.
