So after many many years out of the game I'm jumping back into it by creating a blog that utilizes amazon affiliates. I dont think i will be using any other avenues of revenue at this time. I plan to update the journey each sunday to keep a schedule and not let the thread die. I know I dont have the time to update daily so why fail before I even start. So far this past week I had already bought an expired domain from @Nargil, bought AuthorityAzon theme, i already have hosting with my local SEO business, and I purchased 20k words worth of content from @ContentWriter. I used 10k of the words to create four posts each containing about 2500 words across two keywords I felt were doable as far as ranking. Two of the posts are buying guides for each product niche and two of the posts are reviews of six of the top products in each niche. I had a logo designed at Fiverr using username Srishet123. I have used him two times prior and I am extremely happy with him. His turnaround is usually two days so it was nice to have that done as well. I am going to be using @BassTrackerBoats post located here. It should still apply today and because I'm so far removed from the game I really dont have a plan of action other than making my content top notch. In regards to my content, I still have to leave a review for @ContentWriter but being in the USA and a native english speaker, I spent about three hours going through the 10k word content editing it for spelling errors, grammar, and other things. Regardless, I couldnt have done the research or wrote the content in three hours so its a decent trade off. I may try other providers like @magicherbs123 whom I feel may be better for proper english to save myself the time. Those three hours I could be doing local SEO work and I get paid a decent amount per hour to do so. I have 12 keywords I am targeting right now. It seems pretty low but as the content ranks I will add to them accordingly. I am also using 2018 added to each url and post title. This worked for me in the past and I see it working still for some sites today. Might as well get the ranking six months early when the traffic will hit. Then I will update the urls and titles each year, and 301 the old url to the new url. If anyone knows that this doesnt work anymore please let me know. I don't have a schedule yet as far as putting up new content. I have 10k words left of my purchase so I need to find new niches. I am conducting this journey 100% white hat. Definitely no black hat methods and no grey hat either. I want this to be a long term investment so I'm going to play it safe. I'm not even going to use PBNs. I'm hoping link outreach, guest posts, and exchanges are still alive and well. Any input from anyone is MUCH appreciated as I'm a little rusty. Im sure i can apply what I know with my local seo stuff but I know there is a lot more to ranking amazon sites. Wish me luck.
