    After years of browsing BHW, I finally bit the bullet and started an Amazon Affiliate website about a year ago. As of today, last April is my highest grossing month with nearly $400 from Amazon, and about $20 from AdSense. I just chose a niche I'm familiar with and started working the website, writing articles, sharing them on Facebook, Reddit, started an Instagram account, and just learned SEO along the way. I'm looking to take everything I've learned in the past year, and use it to scale it with related or complementary niches.

    Thank you, BHW, for being a great resource and a place of critical discussion.

    I would say it's roughly 90% organic search

    Thank you! It's a review site in the fashion niche. I do have some news articles, maybe 10%, which contribute nicely to traffic.

    Thanks!

    Thank you :)

    Thanks, it's inspiring and makes me hopeful to see that my work actually pays off.

    I post one to two articles per month, of 800-1200 words each. There are currently 20 articles on the site. I got the whole process of research, write-up and posting with images down to an hour.

    And about the backlinks! Do you purchase suck PBN links or manually creating those such as comments, Web 2.0s etc?

    I honestly struggle with the concept of backlinks, I haven't explored them yet. I didn't purchase anything apart from the domain and hosting, so no bought PBN links. The only backlinking I did was through social media, but they're probably no-follows (I may be wrong, not sure what I'm saying?). The legit backlinks I got were probably naturally occuring, although I'm not sure where to check for those.

    Nice one mate, look after it and don't take too many risks. How many items are you promoting in total?
