    Hi Blackhatters,

    I am about to start a new Amazon affiliate website. I haven't been following SEO trends since the beginning of last year and I'd like to ask your advice regarding few things.

    1. What is better to go for - an authority niche website or few micro-niche websites instead?

    The answer most probably will be "authority one of course!". However, I've heard about few whitehat authority niche websites lost the rankings after big G update(-s), also there's always a risk to get neg-SEOed. What I'm trying to say is that when you have an authority website it's like to have all the eggs in one basket, whereas having multiple MNSs seems to be safer since you spread the risks.

    2. Is exact (or partial) match domain still important these days?

    3. What is the best place to look for inexpensive writers? I've seen few times on the internet that some people get hand written 700-1000 word articles for only 3-5$ per article. Is it even possible?

    Thank you in advance!

    1. Have 1 authority and a couple of MNS. This is what i always follow...
    2. EMD will work forever..
    3. You can find writers in BHW itself for that cost mentioned.

    Really you need a mix of MNS and authority sites in your web properties portfolio. Get started with the small niche sites first
    because they will bring you the fastest turn around on your money with the smallest investment, but while you are doing that
    aim for authority sites for the home runs and long term income potential.

    Exact match will still get you a little love with Google, but that ranking factor has been reduced somewhat. A 1000 word article
    for a couple of bucks is most likely going to be a pretty lousy article. $3-$5 per 100 words will net you some decent money site
    content. You can use cheap articles for tiers and so on. :)

    I agree with the above, you should have 1 authority domain and a few micro niche sites

    Great answers, thanks a lot!

    Speaking about one Authority+multiple MNS, do you build MNSs around the same keywords as you do with the Authority one?
    Let's say the niche is tables. So the categories of the authority website would be - office tables, kitchen tables, patio tables, etc.
    In this case each MNS would correspond to each category of the authority website?

    Basically it's the same PBN around your authority website. As long as I know big G is fighting against it. Do you recommend to be cautious about it?

    You need both and any other models that you think will work.

    I use iWriter to hire writers. There are some descent writers on there. You get to review all work before paying.

    You will need both. But focus more on getting as many authority sites as you can as in the long run these will make you the big bucks.

    Textbroker is one that I recommend only because I work there and know that it's a legit solution. I won't speak of the quality of course (unless I'm producing the content. :p)
