    So i've got my MNS up and running (sort of) with Amazon Affiliates, however I am not ranked or anything like that. Here is my idea, it's simple and hopefully effective.

    This is my first IM journey so please take it easy on me.

    I have a MNS that is affiliated with Amazon, I run Scrapebox and get backlinks (increase SERP? Correct?) and just wait for my daily visits to hopefully purchase from Amazon using my affiliation?

    I'm so new to this as you can probably tell.

    Sarcasm for sure.

    On that note, could anyone please let me know what I should do next?

    Its bad idea. Scrapebox commenting doesn't work anymore, you will just destroy your chances to ever rank your website. You better read some guides on this forum that are more recent, not from 2010. :)

    You're going about this backwards. You're goal is to make money but in order to make money you need traffic. That's what you need to figure out.

    No, its a great scraping tool, it can do more than just post spam comments

    Oh no I definitely understand that bit, but isn't backlinking the way to gain traffic? From my understanding (which is minimal).

    I'm sorry if this came off as a money thing first. Let me just say this now, this is a learning curve... I don't mind if this fails at all, but I hope that I learn a lot in the process.

    So from what I know so far, backlinking = increased PR? Increased PR = more traffic? More traffic = $$$?
    Would this be correct or..?

    And scraping does?

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say that scraping is getting a bunch of high PR/PA/DA/tiered links/domains that I can comment on manually?!

    Or what would I be doing the scraping for?

    Firstly, congrats on making a start.

    You haven't quite got your head around it all yet, but at least you're on your way and taking action!

    do some more reading about quality vs spammy backlinks. Scrape box is a great tool but what you're talking about is spammy and no longer effective.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Thank you! I hope one day i'll be a valuable member of this BHW member but at this moment i'm just a leech! haha.

    Ahhhh, I shall do that indeed. Thanks again.
    Quick question though, through SB is there anyway I can increase my rank automated?

    Because I was planning to comment on high PA/DA/PR links/domains with relevant keywords? Not so much just spam comments all over the joint if that makes sense, would that work?

    ok well that is certainly a better way to do it. Only use scrape box to find the blogs too. Then read the respective page and leave an intelligent comment, don't just say "great post dude!". This will still only have very limited impact though so you will need other quality links too

    Hey bro I know how you feel. It's really hard huh without any proper guidance, especially with all the out dated info on the internet which is potentially deadly since sometimes those techniques take ages to learn and actually apply them.

    Anyways, after you get your money site up, you need to start building tier 1 backlinks to them. Tier 1 backlinks are links from websites that you manually make(Web 2.0). Wikis and Articles are also tier 1. These are the websites that u want to spam because you don't care if these sites get penalized since you can just build more tier 1 sites. This is called link building.

    Bad advice. Its still works, just need some twists. Read some guides on the forum and you will find them.

    Ahuh, so manual commenting is the way these days!! Thank you very much. Do you know how many links i'd need (I know this varies on competition) but how do you find out how many you'll need to overtake said competition?

    It really is! Especially when taking in so much information in such a short amount of time! It's so daunting yet so fascinating at the same time. I love it.

    That I manually make? As in websites or comments? May I ask, what are wikis?

    How come? Do you prefer spamming tier 2? It's just a mns, so I figured the spam distance need not too far like it shud ne with authority sites

    SB is worth at least 10 times what you paid for it imo, but it's not good for building backlinks directly to your money site.

    Surely not, he was serious.

    I think you should try to get traffic from other places like Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and so on, SEO is not for you yet.
