    Hi guys,

    I recently ranked an amazon page in the #2 spot in 4 days! This was for a 40k search in the health niche and was pretty competitive, but it looks like amazon is ranking very well now. Just wanted to share with you guys how I did it.

    - Pure GSA (no other links sent)
    - Blasted links non-stop (didn't pause the project at all during that time)
    - Sent about 150k links per day
    - Tier 1 links only (kept it simple, didn't bother juicing those up with T2's)

    Anyway, there's a million other details I could go through which I put on my blog, but just wanted to let you know that Amazon pages are ranking very well right now, and you may (if you got an easy keyword) even find some fiverr gigs to do it for you.

    If you got questions, shoot below and I'll answer!

    In case you're interested, http://searchhighway.ca/fast-track-your-amazon-page-with-gsa-our-exact-gsa-settings-file-included/ on exactly what was done.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 11

    Churn and Burn? I'm interested to see how it holds up. Either way, just being ranked that high for small amount of time should get you some good sales.

    I might do that one time... but churn and burn a website and see how well it does and it's longevity compared to a properly done niche.

    Sounds more like a churn and burn :) Altho it's still too fast imo. But I don't think it's gonna stick for too long. Anyways. Gj

    Would I still be able to do this with Scrapebox instead of GSA?

    Also is there much difference between the 2?

    This is pretty cool. Spam the hell out of an Amazon parasite page which lists your product that you are having dropshipped. I'm going to test this out in the near future.

    Is this the first time you have tried this? If no, what happens to your rankings as time progresses? How long before slapped back to nowhere?

    I only ask b/c I have a few products that I sell on Amazon and all my sales are through organic search through the Amazon search bar and amazon ads on the site.

    I have always thought of trying something like you explained. My amazon product pages don't rank very well in google search so I really don't care if they get slapped after x amount of time.

    Been going through some of your videos and I've actually learned a thing or two.

    I've been comtemplating on opening an amazon store for awhile now.

    Good stuff OP.

    Nice share, some interesting details and given me a few ideas to try out.
    I like the idea of a broader tier 1 with lots of different but related anchors, rather than a smaller tier 1 which is powered up by a massive tier 2.

    I had a question about your anchor text- you've got quite a high percentage (45%) for secondary anchors. On your blog you only choose 3 secondary anchors, but this seems to be quite a high percentage to use on only 3 or so KW.

    I would normally use around 10% exact/partial anchors, with the remaining anchor being mostly LSI (50%) and the rest brand name and naked URL.

    Nice share and hope you keep the good rankings!

    Does SB just do blog comments and not proper links?

    This is akin to parasite SEO so there's really nothing new here, but your achievement is impressive. 40K searches per month keyword and #2 within 4 days. This is yet another proof that spam and link blasting work and will continue to work just as PBNs will continue to work no matter what Google does.

    Just try to recall how many updates Google has released to counter link spam yet it continues to work with almost the same effectiveness as in the past. The only difference now is the time it takes to rank now. Whilst parasite pages can still rank high fast, new domains take much longer.

    You didn't mention anything about your anchor text ratios on your blog. Would be interesting to know your exact anchor text percentages and how long the site will retain it's #2 rank.

    I think we accidentally switched the anchors in GSA - so what you see in the secondary field is actually our brand, and what you see in the brand field is our secondary's. The 45% you see ends up being for branded terms even though it's labelled secondary!

    Thanks! Glad it helped

    Yep, treating it exactly like a parasite page :)

    Anchor Text percentages are http://searchhighway.ca/amazon-gsa-ranking-series-part-45-gsa-setup-10-discount-included/

    We did this about 2 weeks ago and it's still holding up, so so far so good!

    I read all posts on your blog, really interesting info to be honest.
    But I think that you may be overthinking those anchors a little bit. You are blasting 150K links a day, so few % up or down won't really matter in my experience.
