Or even big corporation listings such as sears & walmart?
Yes if you offer value and can target long tails that these sites dont necessarily appear for.
What @japanized is correct OP!
It all varies keyword to keyword. If it'a a highly commercial keyword (buy, for sale, etc) and the Serps are filled with big brand ecommerce websites, I'd say try something else unless you're really confident.
Wouldn't bother unless you can start ranking long tails first, then attack the big boys once you've built up some authority. I have outranked Amazon for some niches but fucking Google is s intent on plugging them on every moderately commercial SERP its just not worth the time and effort sometimes. I even outrank them in the organic SERPs but since the start of this year, Amazon has been taking up "knowledge" boxes that are in the prime spot even though they should be results 6-9 where they are scraped from.
I don't know what they get out of doing this, it's made Amazon the biggest ecommerce biz ever and people would be more likely to just go straight to Amazon than use Google over time.
Google is busy killing affiliate business. Basically they want to put more money into the hands of those who are already making money. That is how big corporations work.
Yes. But you need to identify your specific niche and what keywords you should be using. Optimize your onpage and build backlinks.
Na, they are just killing affiliate businesses adding no value, quality affiliate sites were always fine and will always be. In general, it's hard to rank a informational site for terms Google sees as transactional keywords. If there are loads of ecommerce sites showing up for a keyword, your chances with a site that doesn't match the search intent are low. So, you'd have to go for the longtails with informational intent.
