    Hi

    Im setting up stuffforyou.co.uk and ideally it's going to be a blog which has link to various ecommerce sites using their affiliate links (amazon associates for example), hopefully we'll have several different catagorys of items and advertise those catagory items in those catagorys offering loads of 'stuff for you'.

    My question is, how exactly would I go about setting up an autoblog, as I want to ideally have something that will post on the blog with links to the item (using affiliate links), images (if neccesary), short description and price as well as post that to twitter (easily use twitter tools). I've applied for amazon associates and they said no because there was nothing on my site, so how exactly would you go about setting something like this up? It doesnt have to be just amazon either, hopefully looking to have amazon links as well as ebay links (if they have affiliate scheme) and various other ecommerce sites.

    Thanks

    Search for autoblogs on crack for setting up an autoblog with WP to generate content, then do a few posts daily with affiliate linking to bring in the wonga.

    Some affiliate networks like skimlinks work automatically so if some of your auto generated content has links to a product, and if skimlinks have that retailer in their affiliate network the lead will be generated. Other networks are available just thought of skimlinks first, had some nice surprise sales through them as well

    It would be an autoblog, but if there are products within your niche that you can achieve high profits from then you will need to make your own post to promote it

    Thanks for that info :)

    Managed to get it up and running (just), got WP-O-Matic setup with RSS Feeds coming directly from amazon. I would like to have the blog posts which WP-O-M creates be put on twitter/facebook so I've iinstalled twitter tools as I've used that before and posts to twitter/facebook when i blog (just a normal blog not a autoblog). Twitter tools doesnt seem to work with WP-O-M, is there any suggestion/work around or alternative?

    I've got my autoblog setup and ready to go, but I keep getting declined from Amazon and im not sure exactly what I should do to ensure that my site will get accepted for Amazon.
