    I recently started making my way on amazon affiliates still at the very begin of it and I found it easy to make the site and set everything up automated for an specific niche, and the keywords were also easy to pick up for a single niche.

    Now I would like to make a new site that will be selling a bigger diversity of products not from an specific niche/keyword.

    So let's say this site will sell home products in general, for example TVs, kitchen stuff, bathroom stuff, its pretty general or so I think.

    I am currently brainstorming on how to go about defining the keywords to rank this site, how would you do the planning for choosing the keywords etc?

    A few things I can think of for instance would be picking up products relations or specifics products and make keyword from there to rank, I could also rank it generally but I am sure the competition would be HUGE considering all the stores already out there and that I am just a copycat from amazon products which I believe would have some impact.

    Looking for good advices about planning the keywords.

    i would just create backlinks to my home page with general home product keywords then you can have sections of your site eg tv which you could try to rank for general tv terms, then further broken down to individual items which you can also rank like you were previously. would be a lot of work to have your homepage be on the first page for a product that you no longer have on your front page.

    I have an e-commerce site and I've used general keywords for the main page of all the products and then picked a few of the main categories and did backlinks for those url's and didn't worry to much about the long tail keywords and that has worked for me.

    What ecommerce platform are you using.

    I used open cart and the only thing ive done is allow for url based on the product and have been receiving traffic to those url's even though I only did links for the general terms in each major category. If your going to build a long lasting site I would concentrate on general keywords for each category and make sure you have you url's of each product rewritten for long tail keywords.

    Its what I've done been up for 4 months and its working great. Major keywords are on page 1 and 2 between 8 and 17 for ranking while long tail keywords are naturally getting found between 1 and 9 on search engines without doing much linking to them.

    Hi all thanks for the feedback.

    @eledesmaj, I am using WordPress with a custom plugin I've made to scrape amazon and auto post products, comments as review, etc, it works like a shopping card on site but once you press checkout it all goes to amazon still on beta phase.

    @GiorgioB, I was considering using long tail for some specific products as I believe it would be easy to rank and get some good traffic and once I get traffic to some parts of the site if the customer believes the content is good they would naturally navigate around.

    @bust-in I think that would be the longest way to rank it to be fairly honest.

    I haven't decided yet but doing the general per category doesn't look bad, what is my main concern is about having it ranking asap so I can see some return rather then taking some months to rank high competition keywords from the general keywords.

    I guess I will start by making a list of all categories I have and study all the keyword statistics about em then get some long tails that and do the same and start with around 10~20 keywords and see how it goes.
