Hello! My first thread so be gentle Has anyone tried to publish an online store of affliate products (via feeds etc) and have it piggy-backed on a seemingly "legitimate" website? For example, let's say I have a website that I post recipes and instructional cooking videos on. Now, after a couple of months (2-3) when the web-site is seen as "legit" and non-spammy in Big G's eyes (original content, etc), I would publish my online store that sells, let's say, cooking supplies on the same domain (eg. Add a "Store" link on the pages). Has anyone tried this strategy before? What do you think of its merits? My personal thoughts: Pros: - Your domain contains completely legit and original content for the first couple of months. Google likes this. - You can leverage your gained authority from posting original content (in the eyes of crawlers) to score better for a very certain niche (cooking -> cooking supplies). Cons: - Time consuming enough that scaling this solution wouldn't be that efficient. Also, I plan to run this experiment. Would anyone be interested in the results here? edit: I should point out that this is different than just publishing a data feed and doing reviews on the affiliate products. The key point about this is that the web site is supposed to be 100% legit and simple for the first couple of months.
