    Lets say you are a creating a website similar to this site:
    highya.com

    How would you monetize a site like that which reviews various products and services, most of which can be found on CPA networks. Obviously the #1 issue would be a conflict of interest but how many people do you think would have a problem with that conflict?

    I appreciate any discussion and feedback on this question. Thanks!

    Amazon Associates and similar affiliate programmes is my first thought. But if you're doing stuff that's particularly niche then you could approach companies directly on a kind of quasi-sponsored content basis.

    This website use more SEO then really useful info, affiliate is the way... but you need to make really strong domain and then slowly rank inner pages, I saw this website in a lot of Clickbank products results, I have one very similar website but in health niche, ask if need some help. If you don't have big budget for website like this better go on some smaller ones...

    Thanks for the tips. my domain is pretty good its typical "general word"reviews.com (think trustedreviews/legitreviews/qualityreviews.com/etc)

    I don't really have a budget but I Don't mind writing articles and i do have a lot of time on my hands with my job being super easy and i usually finish in a hour or so and have the rest of the day to do what i want lol.

    anyways I plan on writing short but insightful reviews, probably 800-1000 words with easy filler content like FAQ, Customer service contact info, pros & cons, etc.

    I was just wondering if people would suspect me of being biased putting up affiliate links to sites I am reviewing. This is where highyah differs because their thing is "non-biased trustful reviews".
