    So I'm expanding my SEO efforts into Affiliate Marketing.
    I have 4 sites up currently with plans for 10 more within the month. These sites are full blown Woocommerce shops with hundreds of products. 3 of the sites are niche focused, 1 is a very broad content site with 750 published articles and a daily article drip with various keywords linking to Amazon affiliate products directly.

    They are are still works in progress but each are piped into and auto publishing to twitter and other social media. Already got 6 sales (but only worth a few bucks.

    So, here are my questions:
    #1. 3 of the niche sites are gaining keyword positions in Google, my broad content site isnt..is this due to too many articles too soon? 586 of them are indexed...

    #2. A lot of what I read says Google doesnt like site with affiliate links and will devalue them or delist them. How true is this and are there ways of getting around it?

    #3. One way I found to potentially get around Question 2 is something I found called Azon Authority. Problem is, its a bit pricey at $97. So, does anyone else use this? Is it worth it? Just another marketing gimmick?

    #4. Are there any other resources, videos etc any of you affiliate vets would be willing to point me to to help me? Right now I'm doing each site a little differently to see what works. One of my sites to show you how serious I am is www.ElectricCrow.com I really want my sites to look nice, trustworthy and informative, though they are still works in progress.

    I greatly appreciate any advice.

    Thanks all.

    I can answer a couple of your questions ...

    #2 Google does not hate affiliate links. If it did, no affiliate site would be able to rank in the top 10. But what Google does not like are pages with too many ads plastered all over.

    #4 I don't think you would be wanting to post URLs of your sites. IMO, a page requires a lot more textual content to rank. Sites need to look nice, informative and trustworthy - but with almost no text on the pages, it will be hard to do that.
