    Let me start off by saying what a wonderful resource the BHW community has created. I must admit - and I'm sure I'm not the first - I was a little unsure how friendly a BlackHat community would be to a newcomer such as myself. I couldn't have been more wrong. The selflessness and dedication towards helping others displayed by your community is indeed humbling and indeed a rarity in any corner of the internet, let alone the SEO sector.

    If it isn't made clear by my post count, I am a complete newbie. I have been following the excellent tutorials of shezboy. It has literally been my first baby-step into the big bad world of BlackHat. But what an enjoyable baby-step it has been. I've bought the entire package - a domain at HostGator and WP Robot Elite and am having a blast. What I am stuck on, however, is the part where I have to add in my affiliate details.

    Bear in mind that I have never done anything remotely like this. After doing some research becoming an affiliate of Amazon and other such companies, it became clear that a review process of the website in question was required. This leaves me in an uneasy spot: this being my first website - currently devoid of any content whatsoever - I'm sure an affiliate request would not be accepted. What would you recommend my course of action be? What is the best way to build up content from non-affiliate sources. Should I be using WP Robot to just post Youtube videos and articles until I become affiliate-ready? Or maybe I am affiliate-ready right now?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Why don't you just write a few articles to post on your blog? Amazon doesn't expect to see a thousand page site when and if they review it.

    In fact, I became an amazon affiliate when I only had a blogger blog. And I think it had one, maybe two, articles on it.

    First of all, Amazon isn't that hard to get into.

    Why not present yourself as an online merchant instead of a common blogger with a blog full of vids and articles.

    Grab some PLR or MRR stuff from here (they come with resell rights).
    Make a post for every product and add a PayPal button.
    Now you have a (simple) shop.

    When Amazon reviews your site (if they do..) they will see an application from someone who wants to make money online selling stuff.
    Exactly what they want...:D

    You might make an occasional sale from the "demo" shop you put up.

    I totally agree with the main man here (BlackHit). If you're not yet 'in' with Amazon then follow his advice as your blog will look a lot more presentable to Amazon than it would if it just has swiped articles and YouTube videos.

    Glad you found the tutorials of use by the way :D

    Its the same with onlywire, i here people complain because they dont want to put the button on their blog.

    Create a blogger blog, write 1 article, then submit it to onlywire and bam, you have an account for you to use. Seriously guys i mean im no expert but i think this should be basic knowledge by now if your using this forum.

    Thanks for the help guys. I'll do just that!
    One more question: when people on BHW speak about having 20 or 30 blogs going, are these usually on completely separate domains or just sub-domains? Seems a tad expensive to maintain that amount of separate domains at $9/month, which is why I'm curious.
    In relation to that, doesn't it get a little dodgy keeping 20 auto-blogs on the same domain i.e chances of getting banned etc?

    EDIT: for the Master Resell Rights stuff, will I have to pay for it or is it usually free? I don't mind paying, I was just wondering if there is any free stuff on offer.

    you mean $9/year and if they earn more money with the domains they can afford it probably.You can also have autblogs ob blogger but have have less control on it having own domain is better

    I think the word AutoBlog has a stigma attached to it which makes people think that they are just there for the purpose of spam. This really isn't the case. And as for having multiple blogs on one domain and one hosting, there's no issue with that either.

    Here's a thread that will explain how this is possible and why it's not an issue

    The concept is that you buy it. It comes with a standard resell license and you resell it.

    The reality is that you download it from here (or somewhere else) and look if the standard license is included in the download. With that you have everything you need to resell it.

    These PLR and MRR products get resold hundreds of times. There's no way anyone can tell, by looking at the product, that you didn't pay for it originally. And I don't think anyone cares...
