    Can anyone tell me if it's possible to pass 'keywords' to amazon, when I'm including their products on my site? As far as I understood, they display the products based on content/keywords on the site, but it works really shitty.

    I don't think it's possible to pass parameters to Amazon in the way you mean.

    Some updates coming soon. I ordered 50-60 articles for a website a few months ago but didn't have the time to publish any but one article. Now I've been working on that very actively and scheduled a ton of posts, optimized them, changing around the website a bit.

    Hopefully in a month or two, should have some pretty good progress or a lesson to teach you guys. :)

    hi i've read the thread and i have a question
    I have 1 amazon niche site and because its my fist site made the mistake of choosing a very competitive niche. So far had 2 sales and keywords are sitting on page 2 and 3 and the traffic its crappy. I've notice that a shop in my niche has 200k searches on google , basically its name is (keyword)Plus.com and my name its Best(keyword).com. His name its not a brand name just a word. Google Planner says its low competion for that keyword: its only him on first page followed by its facebook instagram youtube etc pages and number 10 wikipedia talking obvious about his site.What im asking is that: Should i rank for that keyword on first page ? ppls are looking for his site i know but i think i can drove some traffic to my site. It is worth it ? Is there a problem if i do that since his site is not a brand name . Did somebody already tried that and with what results . Ty and sorry for my bad english

    I have an Amazon site from that hasn't been worked on since 2012 but still brings in $30 - $40 a month. After reading this thread I've decided to start working on it again and to add some more sites.

    Never too long in one place.
    This thread has been awfully slow lately.

    Thank you for sharing this journey and so much resource on the way, spent the last 2 days or so reading everything.

    I am about to move to Vietnam (HCMC too!) with my wife as well, also considering opening up my first Amazon Affiliate site to see how it goes.

    Will be watching your thread! :)

    Can I ask a question?

    Have you ever thought of building an Ecommerce shop right in your authority site? By using the WooCommerce Affiliate Amazon plugin, it can setup an affiliate store within minutes.
    Would it hurt the site SERP if you build this Ecommerce shop?

    Regardless, it definitely will bring some traffic to your site by longtail keywords.

    Great thread! like it so much. Spend 3 hours to read all the contents in this thread.
    Can I ask some question?
    1. How much do you spend for all the articles and domains? Does the earnings can cover that?
    2. Haven't you build any backlinks to these websites? I see that you don't have too much time to do the work.
    3. I am confuse of on-page SEO, do you have any suggestions? like books or threads or someone I should learn from?
