    You want some advice who has made a whole ton of auto generated stores in wordpress and forwarded them to affiliates ... my advice is don't do it the way you're saying you want to do it.

    Don't create a page for each product. It'll be hard to promote them all properly, hard to rank them for product names, you'll make some money but not as much as you could be making.

    Instead, make a quality site where every page represents a 1k+ exact keyword that is not a specific product. For instance, instead of promoting 10 different models of laptop and trying to rank for their model name and number, instead go for keywords that nobody really tries to target -- buying keywords that are generic. For instance "laptops with long battery life" (590 exact), "laptop long battery life" (320 exact), "laptop best battery life" (320 exact), "laptop battery life comparison" (590 exact) etc ... after you get through all the combinations of those keywords you're probably looking at a 2k or 3k exact search for the topic.

    Then you make the best page on the internet, hand written, 100% unique and quality that compares the top 10 or top 5 laptops with the longest battery lifes.

    Fill up your website like that ... make every page quality and count. You'll make a ton more money than just spitting out hundreds or thousands of product names with low or no unique content. My product websites make 90% of their cash from 2% of their pages, the quality ones like I described ... I'm constantly weeding out lower quality pages and adding higher quality ones (when I first created them, I didn't know what I'm telling you now).

    Thanks alot. Will do this. So im going to make quality pages instead of individual product pages which is time consuming. I heard the engines dont like affiliate rich sites so are people forwarding the affiliate links to a page that then forwards to the main merchants site? Do you know what i mean? Does that hide the fact that the intention of the site is to make $ by affiliating?

    I hide my affiliate links. What I do is an internal link to a redirect page, nofollow it and ban Google from seeing the page with robots.txt.

    Make a robots.txt page that says this ...

    Code:
    User-Agent: *
    Disallow: /redirect.php
    Then hide all your redirects inside the redirect.php page. For instance, you could have it set that if the URL is /redirect.php?link=1 that you have it designated that it gets forwarded to a particular product page on your affiliate site, where link=2 is a different page. Hide all your affiliate page redirects inside redirect.php ... Google isn't allowed to see it so it doesn't know where it may redirect to.

    Meanwhile, if you're redirecting to an internal link on the same domain, and you nofollow ... Google completely drops it from their link graph. However, if that nofollowed link is outgoing, your page still loses PR (actually ... it just has less ability to transfer PR to your other internal links which overall lowers the PR of your entire website). That is why you hide your outgoing redirect in a page that is restricted by robots.txt ... that way Google doesn't know your redirect is outgoing.
