    So after spending quite a bit of time setting up my new blog, i get rejected by amazon -_-. Who basically said they wont allow the domain name "iphone4deals.info" because of trademark. Which i can understand but now i need to get a new domain name and i'm clueless on what to choose.

    I'm basically using the "shezblog" method, blogging about iphones. I have done keyword research and can't find any keywords that would work without including a trademark word (apple, iphone, etc).

    So should i ditch amazon and keep the domain? Or should i change the domain to something else? If so, can anyone please give me some ideas/suggestions about the domain name (i'm really stuck)?

    Any help if much appreciated, thanks :)

    Amazon is easiest aff network to enter imo. I used most simple joomla blog (it's even non-english one) with only few copypasted articles and got accepted without any questions. I said that I'll promote their offers at other blogs and use SEO to get traffic. If you need link for my blog pm me.

    What if you just get a second domain, redirect it to the iphone4deals blog(could even try a cc.co freebie). Then use the second domain in your application to them, after accepted forget about the second domain and just promote the original iphone4deals one.

    I am not sure but doing a search I found this:

    Code:
    https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/blogger
    So I *guess* you can join through blogger. Not 100% sure.

    Make a blogger/wordpress sub, they approve anything apart from trademarkes/race/hate.

    Have to agree, it's one of the easiest to get accepted to. Just buy another .info domain with no trademarks in it and use it to apply. A couple of minutes to buy the domain, and a few minutes to set-up a WP install with a couple of articles!

    You should have more than one domain&blog. It's good practice to keep at least one white-hat lookin blog to impress CPA and aff network reviewers.

    Just use a general name instead. That way when the next hot phone comes out it will already fit with your site.
