    Always wanted to try this out with a twist, you have given me a lot of ideas on how to make it happen. Thanks!

    Good Luck, you are well on your way.

    You are overthinking it. There is no exact formula to follow just link when it's natural.

    What I would do is to make sure that every parent page has a link from another parent page and then every supporting(info) page is linking to at least 1 parent page. This way you make sure the link juice is flowing and that's all you need.

    It it really worth it to make any silos? Or just interlinking a few related articles is enough?

    Update

    .... I really can't answer why I'm taking so long to add images to the remaining article. Yesterday I only got through three. So far today I've only done 1.

    I'm really wasting time and procrastinating. I'm gonna go away and try to finish it in 3 hours of dedicated work. I won't let today pass without getting it over with.

    Earnings For Yesterday:

    7feed364fbf9c9fb0c8d9476f1db59db.png

    Coming as soon as I finish these articles in 3 hours. After that I'm onto the next site builds.

    Most people only read journeys and methods without taking action. I never ever ever... EVER. in thought I'd be where I am at the start of the year. So take action, you never know what can happen.

    Hey you're really overcomplicating this silo thing. My Silos work like category pages.. So it'd be xyz.com/home/ as the parent then xyz.com/home/best-chairs-for-your-bedroom as the pillar post then you link related articles from A,B,C,D... to the pillar post. The pillar post can link up to xyz.com/home/. Shit... you are complicating it even I'm confused and don't know how to tell you.

    Just link naturally as @yesofcourse said. Again it all depends on where you want the juice to flow. If you want A to be the pillar article then link from the related articles to A. You can link from A to them but you don't need to. At the end of the day just keep it natural and link to articles you want to boost from pages with good metrics and traffic.

    Previously all articles I wrote prior to the November update ranked in 3 weeks to page 1. Now I don't know as my site was dropping keywords over until now it's just seemed to be stabilizing. But generally most articles should rank good in 3 months.

    Thanks.

    It is to properly categorize your content on the site. Linking is to send juice from articles with traffic and links to the article you want ranked. Or if you want to boost all articles equally you do a silo-wheel. So from parent to child back to parent.

    Explaining how silos work in text is more difficult than ranking a new site.

    I'm pretty much ranking without silos. Interlinking related articles does work.

    Hi Good day, would you pls comment.
    I do occasionally buy few items for my son from amazon (not from my niche )
    do hav a friend with near by different pin code ,
    Should I create a separate blog site for these , so can ask my friend on behalf of me
    Whats is the better strategy on this or just leave these..
    My affiliate site is developing slowly so no conversions to say.
    another q on this:
    htmls with rel="nofollow" and removing target="_blank". - right now I put affiliate link manually with link inserer and check on to open in new window . is this same ? thanks

    Really looks awesome! Do you perhaps have a screenshot of ahrefs statistics? I'm curious what stats your domain has in terms of keywords, ref domains etc.

    So after being away for a few days thinking things through carefully...

    I've decided that I'm gonna sell the site.

    Earnings are stable and traffic is stable too but it's better to sell it now and use the funds to reinvest in new projects. It's a great opportunity imo.
    So I've sent it to motion invest for an evaluation and if I don't hear back from them or nothing positive I'll go to Empire Flippers.

    We'll see how that turns out. If all else fails then I'll just keep building on this site in the background while focusing on the new niches.

    Earnings for Last Week:

    56bb385327f0d593007d9163b0893f1a.png

    Yesterday​

    46f703ad037d370f65e237fdcd92e019.png

    This month has been good. And I've already broken past $4k.

    I'm not sure what you're asking in the first part. But for the second part just add rel="nofollow" beside target="_blank" I used to let it open from the same page but maybe it's better to open in a new tab so they can easily switch tab and come back to my site to search for items.

    It is. I took 9 months to get to this point. Well....... let's not forget the many months and previous experiences I've had researching and doing other forms of affiliate marking. But nonetheless it's achievable.

    I'd rather not share that at this point. Maybe if I sell the site or even then it might be prohibited to share that information.

    There's 2 points of view for this, btw. When you sent off a visitor to Amazon from your link you don't really want them to return to your website and look for other items or think more about the products. You want them to buy and they buy it from the store not from your website.

    Read that somewhere haven't tested it myself but makes sense for me.

    If you sell your site, you are going to create more amazon affiliate sites or you are gonna try a different business?

    Nevertheless great work and congratulations on your success!

    What multiple do you think you are going to sell the site at? 15x 30x?

    Why don't you stick to the former plan which is to see one or 2 others kick off good before selling this one? I'm new to this but I that's still the best plan, except you really need the cash right now.

    But since you've decided, I wish you good luck.

    It will be great to keep seeing your updates anyway, they've been really instrumental in my motivation. I finally got my account approved today. I remembered you once told me things will kick off soon. I think they are starting to for me.
