    Hello, So my question is this:

    Is it possible to set up a simple Blogspot store with afffiliate links? The blog wont have any written posts, just a store with products related to fashion. Will drive traffic from pinterest..copying popular pins then posting on the blog(with a brief description) then pinning them on pinterest again. Those pins i take from popular page on pinterest wont be buyable its just to drive traffic to the blog, i could put them on top of the page, on a picture slider and then the products from the affiliate would be on the bottom of the page...

    This probably is just a stupid noob idea, but can anyone tell me if this is doable? If so, can you share some affiliate programs?

    Thanks and have a nice day... :cool:

    The simple answer is yes... But why would you work to generate traffic to a free hosted website that could be taken away from you at any moment. Free websites should be used to spam the sh!t out of them with BH tools, rank them, get your commission and invest it in more tools and more websites... I wouldn't spend my manual workforce on promoting a free blog for affiliate promos...

    He could Cloak them, unless it is a highly spammed affiliate program I don't think blogspot will mind... If it is a highly spammed program than I could bet they have some sort of filter... anyways I would still buy my own domain for the social media strategy you plan to use.

    I would not use Web 2.0 blogs as my primary site / money site at all, because on the one hand many free blogs don't allow advertising and on the other hand those blogs are very easy to destroy by simply abusing them for whatever reasons...

    I have already killed some stupid competitors in the past by simply abusing their free blog money sites, so be careful with such things...

    I'll second the Wordpress idea. Wordpress + Googling "free wordpress theme for apparel store" = website in about 5 minutes. Then you can do the pin + post + pin idea.

    There are even some plugins for Wordpress that will scrape content for you and post it. Something to look into maybe?

    If you look online, you can usually find good URL + hosting bundles.

    Wordpress is a good idea, and the first $50 you make from the free hosting you can easily transfer it to your own domain and server ;)... Good way to begin without having to invest, good luck!

    Too many aff links have proven SEO downfall in the past. Google penalizes for using aff links, however just try to be less spammy as possible, and always keep track of your SERPs' because in the long run and the short term thats all that matters

    Google does NOT penalize for affiliate links, Google penalizes for thin/duplicated content, if you can provide a good unique review on an affiliate product that has value for the visitor you won't have any problems. Check the SERPS for any affiliate product you'll see plenty of top results with the affiliate link visible...

    Given the fact that you can get a .com for $0.99 (e.g. search for godaddy coupons), I really do not see why anyone would invest time (and possibly money) on a free domain (such as blogger), that can be deleted any minute.
