Hey Guys, Quick question, I have quite a few ranked sites in my time and I just tried my hand with Amazon for the first time. I found two expired domains in the health niche with good metrics, one for a womens based product and the other for a mans based products. I bought a speedy VPS with a good host i've used for years and created 10 x 1,000 word unique articles (5 for each site), content is actually really good not cheap non-sense, had a few social shares already. Now, what I did was I created one WordPress 'template' and used the same template for both sites. I mean, this should be ok as most of the internet use templates and the content is different for each site. Although they have the same ad placement (with different code). Both sites have 2 Adsense ads on and ONE amazon affiliate link, these links, when clicked, go to a no-follow page, which then re-directs to Amazon. The sites also have 8 outbound links each to relevant wikipedia pages/ social media links. Note: The sites don't have social profiles, just links to them. E.g Facebook.com Both sites are added to analytics and webmaster tools under the same user but are targeting different keywords. The keywords i'm targeting are really, really easy as this is just a test to see what works. The #1 spot has one backlink and a DA/ PA of 5. Mine has 25/15 and 56 referring domains from relevant sources. However, neither site has any rankings. The first one was originally #12 but then dropped to #144 the following week. I'm not entirely sure what part of this i'm doing wrong. The content is different and the domain themselves are already more powerful than the #1 positions competitors. Any pointers? It might be the 301 redirect, but I read on the forum that having a straight amazon link will get you pushed down in the ranks.
