    This method is nothing new and I know allot of people are going to criticise it. Do not try this if you get a little emotional every time Google de-indexes your website, because every single website you do this with will get de-indexed eventually.

    Here are some earnings from Amazon. You can see where I started the method and where websites got de-indexed. I made the mistake of being discouraged by the de-indexing and have only just started doing this again.

    [​IMG]

    Step 1: Choose a niche
    I like to choose big saturated niches that are huge on Amazon. Some examples are kids toys, clothing, electronics. The best niches I found are ones that cater to women around 30 - 50 years old. That's because there are more of them at home and they are browsing the internet looking for ways to spend their husband's money. The aim of the game here is not to make direct sales, it to get clicks to Amazon and cookie the person's computer. The cookie will last 90 days and if no one else gets their cookie on, you'll get commissions on all their purchases.

    Step 2: Get an Amazon account
    Make sure you have a USA account, but it will help helpful to get .ca and .uk as well.

    Step 3: Choose a domain
    This is what makes it work. You have to choose a domain that has some PD and DA but is still indexed.

    Go to https://member.expireddomains.net and make an account. Start searching by checking the no Fake PRs, no unsure PRs & no PageRank -1 check boxes. Also check the no number or hyphens. I find these domains are more likely to have been spammed. People probably trying to rank for EMDs with their ten hyphen domain.
    [​IMG]

    Sort the results by SMR, SDA or SPA. Find a domain that has a reasonable amount of all. Some will have 5+ SDA and 0 SMR, that's a warning sign.

    Don't get caught up on how the domain sounds. I find some of the weirdest domains still work well.

    Here is one that is worth investigating: rctoyshobbyshop.com
    [​IMG]

    It looks okay in the results so lets see if its still indexed by typing site:rctoyshobbyshop.com

    It is indexed, but here are the results.
    [​IMG]

    I don't need to explain why that domain isn't worth investigating any more.

    Here is one that might work: toysgamesmarket.com

    [​IMG]

    Its indexed, no Chinese spam and ED says the metrics are good. To be honest, its probably not the best and its really not even worth getting deep into how good the domain is

    Step 4: Make the website
    I was previously using WooCommerce Amazon Affiliates - Wordpress Plugin but Prosociate has been shared here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...iate-2-1-version-amazon-affiliate-plugin.html

    Get a WordPress theme, I recommend checking out InnovativeSEO's thread here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...emes-collection-updated-retaail-versions.html

    Make sure its a Woocommerce enabled theme.

    Upload the theme and plugins to your Wordpress website and make it look nice

    Step 5: Import products
    Import as many products as you can. Make sure you make the categories manually and do not use Amazon's categories. Add the product categories to the menu and your site is ready to rumble.

    Step 6: Duplicate the website
    Each website is going to make you a small profit, but once you have one, you can duplicate it. If you've got a Linux VPS and know how to use SSH, this processes is going to be extremely fast If you're using Cpanel, then... I don't know how long it will take.

    Tip 1: Use a Linux VPS
    You're going to be scraping Amazon and importing products, your HostGator shared hosting account will get banned pretty fast doing this.

    Tip 2: Don't use WMT
    I had sever accounts in WMT and they all go banned together. I don't know if they use WMT, or they just review all websites with domains registered under your name. I haven't tested it without WMT yet, I'm doing that at the moment.

    Tip 3: Cache the shit out of your website
    Use CloudFlare and W3 Total Cache to speed up the website.

    Tip 4: Don't import variations
    You're not trying to provide a lovely use experience here, you're trying to get that 'buy now' button clicked and land the cookie on your target. Having an on-site cart and variations will only reduce your profits.

    Tip 5: Use a different Amazon Tracking ID for each website
    Some websites will do well, some won't. You can use Amazon's Tracking ID to see which ID made the sales. If your domain makes it through the whole year, you can renew the ones that made sales and cull the ones that didn't.

    Nothing, Google just sends me some traffic for a while and then they de-index the website. That's why you get domains that have some okay metrics.

    The method is all about getting the right domains. Some you'll hit a jackpot with, some will be a complete failure.

    I don't think this method was a big secret, its a pretty obvious thing to do. Plus, I doubt many people will actually do it because to make any money out of it you need Linux skills.

    I love these type of sites because they enable me to take the number 1 position and just rake it in.

    It looks like you're right. If the product is added to the cart within 24 hours then you get the commission if the person makes a purchase without the cart expiring. The cart usually takes 90 days to expire.

    I'm interested in giving this method a go, but I don't know how to scrape Amazon nor how to set up the Linux VPS to do so.
    Why does the acct get banned for scraping?
    Thanks in advance! :)

    Scrape with Procosiate.
    A shared hosting account will get banned for using all the resources.
    There are VPS providers on BHW. You need to know how to use Linux from the command line but.

    I aim for about 4000 products on each website. Some sites get around 100 - 180 UVs a day.

    Also people, this is pretty basic an you're not going to become a millionaire from spamming Google with Amazon products. You can add your own twists by blasting links, using Tumblr or Pinterest. Get creative.

    Nice out of the box thinking from an old method released a while ago (i think it was from Lbrown but not sure)
    I won't put it in motion but thanks for this "old BHW type of share".

    are the visitors all from google? If so that's alot of traffic for an autoblog nowaday. I'm running some amazon autoblogs also but the traffic is not that much but I have a lot more products on my sites.

    Thank you. Nice Linux VPS packages too. $9.95 /month for the small package is dirty cheap and would suit this method perfectly while you get started.

    Mostly from Google, some from Pinterest. What do you domain metrics look like? Do you build links?

    nah man I use new domain and I think that is why the traffic is low. I used to make good money with Amazon Autoblog in a few years ago. Everything have changed now.
