    Hey guys, I am back with another guide and this time I am going to show how I install my Wordpress niche sites in less than 10 minutes. Why do I want to show this? Well, I see way too many people that spend weeks upon weeks to put up their sites. Which is in my opinion isn't needed for small niche sites - we want them to click through to your links and MAKE YOU MONEY, nothing else.

    Sure, if you’re going to build a brand website, an authority website or something that you need to have great user experience on this might not be the ideal but for affiliate site you want them to click on your links - having great user experience comes second (in my opinion). With this setup I’ve had a click-through rate of 70-80% which in my opinion is great! :)

    I've recorded this video showing you step-by-step how. Under the video you'll find all the resources needed to follow this guide! :)



    Plugins

    Google XML Sitemap: https://wordpress.org/plugins/google-sitemap-generator/
    iThemes Security: https://wordpress.org/plugins/better-wp-security/
    No Follow All External Links: https://wordpress.org/plugins/nofoll...xternal-links/
    Contact Form 7: https://wordpress.org/plugins/contact-form-7/
    W3 Total Cache: https://wordpress.org/plugins/w3-total-cache/
    Tablepress: https://wordpress.org/plugins/tablepress/

    The theme was shared for free here by 3lt0n1: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackha...ion-theme.html

    Amazon Affiliate Disclousure:
    [YOURURL] is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for website owners to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com, endless.com, smallparts.com, myhabit.com, and any other website that may be affiliated with Amazon Service LLC Associates Program.

    Step-by-step in text format:
    1. Install Wordpress
    2. Install the theme and activate the theme
    3. Add the plugins mentioned above
    4. Add about us, contact us and Amazon Affiliate Disclosure-page (if you're doing Amazon)
    5. Add the pages above to a new Menu and set it as "Primary menu"
    6. Make 2 categories, one for informative articles and one for review articles such as "Best Toaster 2015" or "Toaster 2157 Review"
    7. Set these categories in another Menu and put it as "Secondary menu"
    8. Go into Widgets, remove everything in the sidebar except "Recent posts", and add "Image widget" (and insert image + link)
    9. Make a page about the main topic of the site (in my case Best Toasters 2015) and set it as static homepage
    10. Add content, comparison and affiliate links

    Voilá, your first niche site is officially live! Congrats! :)

    I hope this guide was helpful, I know that I struggled with this a lot as a newbie so I thought I would share to help others out.

    I just realized two things. I forgot to add Yoast SEO plugin and change the permalinks to "/post-name". If you use Yoast, you won't need to use the XML sitemap I added. :)

    Also, thanks to you that removed the site now - perfect. I totally forgot to change the password before posting this thread.

    Do you suggest any plugin to monetize traffic from other countries?
    How to make such images as you added the one in sidebar?

    Personally I use search engines, but you're free to use whatever traffic source that you prefer. :)

    A few more things you can easily do to protect your site and earn revenue easily.
    You can monetize your site with showing relevant products from Amazon with EasyAzon plugin that automatically adds amazon to each post. Use as many country id's as you have and it'll redirect.


    Add live Ebay auctions with easybay plugin - You can also add live ebay auctions to posts, pages or in the sidebar. these are keyword specific and show live countdown for ebay auctions, the beauty of this is that it replaces auctions when they end so it's set and forget.


    For your legal pages you can use Wp Legal Pages, add all your legal pages easily with this free plugin. https://wordpress.org/plugins/wplegalpages/


    For added security use Limit login attemps plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-limit-login-attempts/
