    Hey guys!

    I've decided 3 months ago to start building an Amazon affiliate website, thought it would be an easy game to rank it; but I end up being really hard. SEO is not something you want to try without reading about it first.

    The product:
    Simple product, no dedicated website (France), value between 25€ & 200€ with an average of 50€ to 75€.


    My site statistics:
    [​IMG]
    As you can see, not much organic traffic. Mainly the people I hired and myself.



    The keyword analysis :


    KW 1:
    [​IMG]
    KW 2:

    [​IMG]


    Where I am ranking now :
    [​IMG]
    It's growing slowly, but far from what I was expecting.



    What I have spent yet:
    - Article writing : $70 for 20 articles (poor french student found on classifieds ads, high quality articles) + $50 for 4 articles (good quality)
    - http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ehat-brand-new-link-type-dollar35seo-com.html 50 Links for $75 --> Seems like it brought my keywords around page 5 at the time.
    - Currently hiring a Freelancer worker to rank keyword 1 & 2 in first page of google (paid on result, $70 per KW). Basically creating WEB 2, posting few comments etc etc.

    What else I've done:
    Purchase 2 expired domain PR2 with CF/TF between 10 and 20 and build a wordpress on it, article linking to my money domain.

    What I earned yet:
    - Nothing. 2 sales brought me a poor 10€ in commissions.

    What I'm planning:
    - Buying FCS Networker to create Tier 1 links and hiring / purchasing more backlinks on this Tier 1.
    - Asking you guys for advices. I'm obviously missing a huge part of the problem, and I hope you can rub it in my face so that I move forward. Either I'm not understanding the competition, or i'm missing some tools, or quality backlinks. I'm a bit lost at this point.


    I'm really looking forward small/big tips/advices. I really want to push this website to page 1 and why not top 3.
    If you need more infos, Ask & I'll post the answer here.

    Fun to follow your affiliate journey! Plan looks solid!

    Shouldn't be too hard hitting 30? per day. I wish you best of luck! :)

    Hey Man.. I'm also doing little bit of the same. Also have FCS Networker but it's not much of a use unless you will use it for a PBN. I have tried to rank with Tiered linkbuilding and it does little to no effect. And also all the other sites are using PBN which makes it really difficult.
    I would advise getting more domains and creating a small PBN of 10-15 sites. I know this is going to cost a ton but this is the only proven way of ranking nowadays.
    Good Luck!

    How hard is your competition compared to mine?
    I've been thinking about building a PBN but it asks a lot of ressources & time (domains + IP + content). I keep believing I should be able to rank my site easily. Competition is only ecommerce websites and absolutely no content (except for amazon)

    Since my ranking strategy doesn't seem to work well at the moment, my goal is to create a breakdown of the type of link I have now Versus the one I should have.

    Links I have now:
    ✓50 links from the Eclipse BST thread -> Low quality profile created with direct anchor text.
    ✓Forum profile : 5 (PR 3 - 6)
    ✓Social medias : 22 (PR 2 - 8)
    ✓Directories : 5 (PR 6 - 7)
    ✓Image Posts : 6 (PR 3 - 5)
    ✓Classified Ads : 4 (PR 3 - 4)
    ✓Blog Comment : 5 (PR 9)
    ✓Profile linking : 5 (PR 2 - 9)
    ✓2 domains with wordpress on it with direct anchor text to it.

    What I don't have:
    ✖︎Guest posts: really hard to find guests posts in french & in my niche. Have to do more research
    ✖︎PBN links: Lots of people told me not to buy any but rather build my own.
    ✖︎EDU / GOV backlinks ? Not sure it's worth it.

    -I got a spare $200 to try & rank this site on page one. I don't want to rush it as I want it to be well spent. My options now include FCS Networker to build WEB 2 + Written content on it. I'm also looking for really high quality links or blog posts that I could purchase but haven't found anything that suits me yet.
    -On a larger scale (for my other projects) I might be interested in purchasing GSA SER, Kontent Machine, & Noble Samourai to develop more of these sites if it does bring me a positive ROI.

    To show further stats and keep a record, here are my MOZ and MAJ stats:


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I'm quite surprised that Moz doesn't find any inbound links in the last 60 days.


    As usual, any advices are very welcome !

    SEO is not that you have to read,you have to apply your theorems here and get results.

    I would avoid making an affiliate blog where the first page is filled with eCom sites. Usually when this happens google know that people are looking to buy and not in the mood for information unless they search for something like "best", "review". I think it's easier to rank for something else than this, that's what happened to me in the past if others have seen something different do share it :)

    Well it gives me some passive income with PPI, about $7/8 per day but I wont go further unless I have a winning strategy in the filed which is not the case at the moment.

    My niche is quite competitive.. best *** ******* gets 14800 searches and *** ******s gets 74000 searches
    But even for longtail keywords, there's literally no movement from FCS+GSA
    If you wish, add me on skype, we could probably throw some ideas )

    It takes some time to get ranked sometimes, so build links steadily. Do not buy more and more SEO services thinking that your site isn't ranking. :p One of my BH site ranked for a very searched KW after almost 2 years, and made me $2000 last month but google penalized it, at least that's what I think. Good luck on your journey mate. :)

    So today i manually added some blog comment on the same type of niche site. Really not many sites but that's 5 more backlinks, very targeted. I thought for a minute that Facebook comment plugin was a good way to get great links but it seems like Google doesn't crawl that at all.

    Update:

    SERP havent moved much (+6 / -6).

    I have bought an expired domain with the following characteristics to start & try some new strategies:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The SPAM score is not that great but if I keep it slow & high quality I should be good.

    I have ordered 9 x 1000/1200 words articles on 9 keywords in a new niche (Still French content).
    I bought FCS Networker and I'll start creating some WEB 2 & Social links for this new site.

    I'm planning on buying Kontent Machine & Noble Samourai soon. Also looking for a good spinner for French content (or maybe Kontent machine would do that ?)



    From now on, the first site will be referred as NICHE 1 and the second site site as NICHE 2

    Any questions, feel free to ask.
