    Hello everyone,

    I am starting an amazon affiliate campaign in which I will be selling bikes. I won't go any more specific than that in an effort to not give away my niche, but it has a MOZ difficulty of around 72%. Not bad IMO.

    My first step was to create a simple Wordpress site on HostGator hosting.

    Then I bought 8 articles (300 words each) from iWriter.

    I will be posting the articles over a long period of time, about a month, and building links and/or buying links on Fiverr.

    I paid a guy to fix up my on-site SEO a little bit also on Fiverr.

    I will also buy some social signals at real social signals (dot) com.

    (That one is not my site, I just found it on a Youtube video and it's worked for me before.)

    As far as I can tell as a newbie, this is all I need... (?)

    If you disagree let me know below.

    Where is the meat in 300words about a bike? Are these reviews? Or just informational? How do you even fit a good sales pitch and information into 300 words?

    What kind of links you planning on buying from fiver? Most are junk.

    A month isn't a long time for post scheduling, I just wrapped up scheduling posts for a site through July(6 posts a month). But granted that site already has 47 posts, averaging 1,000+ words each.

    You paid a guy for on-site optimization BEFORE posting any content?

    There was already some content on the site. The articles are simply informational and purely to show value of the site. I'm buying link pyramids and I will index them with linklicious... not sure how well that will work. Like I said I am fairly new, so thanks for the tips about content and links.

    Then again I'm only 14 years old ha ha

    Word of advice my young friend; don't buy SEO work on Fiverr. Huge waste of money.

    Wow good luck! I think you should invest more on longer articles instead, at least around 800++ words.

    I think the keyword difficulty is quite high though :/. Update us right here, maybe we can help u in ur journey :)

    I'm concerned about the short articles as well as the source of those articles. iwriter has not been the best source of content for me over the years and a 300 word article is an anomaly as opposed to the norm on a decent site.

    One other concern is your leaning on Fiverr a tad too much... I'm sure there is some value with some gigs but in general it is low rent services so be careful there.


    There are a ton of easy KWs in this niche... tons.

    You just need to look under some rocks.

    Look like an excellent niche choice to me.
    It's ok to make some mistakes in the beginning, that is the best way to learn. Just be persistent, that is by far the most important thing.

    Good luck!
