    Hey. I'm totally new to internet marketing and have read quite a bit of material on it the last few days. So now I would like to start off by just promoting a bunch of affiliate products (maybe 10) on individual websites and then focus on promoting them for a while, learning new techniques along the way from sites like these. The idea is to get a unique domain for all the affiliate products.

    So that's like 10 domains x $10= $100. I can pay for it if it's really necessary to create successful affiliate sites but I don't have a lot of money (lost my job) so I'd really like to avoid investing money at this point.

    So I came across Squidoo and it looks like Google really likes ranking Squidoo pages, so I was thinking maybe it's a good idea to put all my affiliate sites on there instead and promote those pages instead. Do you guys think it's a good idea or do you think it'll severely limit traffic and conversions as opposed to putting affiliate products on their own domains and having more freedom to design the website to increase traffic & conversions?

    Any advice is greatly appreciated...

    If your niche is small then Use article sites or any websites like squidoo and spam them to hell,they are high authority websites,so with just few backlinks you will be no.1
