    Hi

    I've got an affiliate Whitelabel site on a domain that is a couple of years old. It's been sitting there for some years doing nothing. The site compares prices on popular electronics.

    Could someone please suggest the best way to promote the site, considering there are possibly over 100 other sites with the same content. I checked open site explorer, and supposedly it has a domain authority of 17/100.

    Is there any point in trying to do SEO for this site? I can't afford PPC as I'm running out of money, and ideally need to see results within 3-4 weeks.

    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.


    Cheers

    I've just done a search for the site on google using the 'site:' parameter. There is literally a single entry on Google, so I reckon the domain has been heavily penalised for duplicate content.

    I strongly suggest you to put your effort in developing another site with unique content. Trying to rank a site with duplicated content is 100% a waste of time....

    Getting any kind of site to generate money with SEO in 3 to 4 weeks is a really hard task. More so if the content is duplicate and has been penalised by Google. New sites can take 4 or even 6 months to start ranking well and making money. Assuming you are not having a really powerful PBN already.

    PPC however is a different game altogether. But you have to know the market well and be willing to invest money and do a bit of testing.

    Start by replacing that duplicate content and customizing the site.
