    Hello Guys,

    This thread is for people here on BHW that have read Danny1111's and marecenas23's threads and either started taking action as an Amazon Associate or will start taking action shortly.

    This thread will be a good place to share our knownledge/mistakes/experiences as we progress together. Although the threads I mentionned earlier are helpful, it is hard for someone with one website to learn from someone with 70+ websites.

    I myself, started my journey few months ago, I built one EMD (Exact Match Domain) website 3-4 months ago, did some on-page seo only and completely forgot about it because i was busy preparing for a certification. Now that my exam is over, I am back at this.

    I have earned to date around 25$ from this one website (12$ per month last 2 months) and I am very happy about it. My website is getting 30-40 unique visitors per day with ups and downs and is ranked 1st in google for some keywords.

    I recently bought 4 new domains that I will start developping... My weak areas are: Design and off page seo (backlinking, ...), I am completely new to that.

    Let's hear your stories.

    Cheers,

    OK So since no one wants to start, i'll take that as good news (fewer competition than i initially thought) and i will continue telling my story:

    so i made my 1st site in february:
    - ugly design
    - domaine isa buying exact match and includes a "-"
    - niche is high competition
    - no off page SEO at ALL
    - some decent onpage SEO (just the basics)
    - started with 3 pages of unique (good) content (reviews)

    i made 12.75$ in may and was just shy of the 6% commission rate, I then added 3 more pages of content, and so far in june i made 22.5$ in commission (I hit the 6% rate).

    My second website is now up and running, is indexed by google, contains 4 pages of unique content plus the home page.. i will be adding more content as i go along.

    The third & 4th websites are still in the design phase, i picked the theme, i did the layout, i still have to customize it a little bit. I ordered some content / will start writing some myself and i am planning to have them up live before the end of june.

    I also purchased 2 more domains for websites 5 and 6 and will start working on them in july.

    Do not hesitate to ask any question or share your knowledge. This is mainly a newbie thread, and any input is always welcome.

    Good luck with today's commission.

    Well, I'm pretty much bruteforcing it by autposting tons of tweets with product links to 130k followers. 0.1% conversion rate, but still making about $50 - 100 a month plus people are retweeting the stuff and I'm getting plenty of followers.
