    Here is my problem: I have these 2 sites, both amazon affiliate websites but not stores. More like niche/review sites. 1 site (my oldest) is ranking like it is supposed to for it's keywords but the second site is just messing with my head.. After 2 weeks all pages are indexed but none are showing in the SERPS. All these keywords I'm targeting are super low competition like the ones I targeted with my first site.

    Anyway after doing some more research I found the difference between these sites. It turns out that the keywords I'm going after with my second site are all dominated by e-commerce sites. So, although my competitors barely have backlinks, I still have a really small chance of ranking since i'm not e-commerce and G only wants these in the SERPS. The first site keywords didn't have this problem because there were like 2 or 3 e-commerce websites competing but the rest were "normal" sites.

    So now I have to find a solution - the obvious thing to do is trick G into thinking I'm an e-commerce site but since i don't know a way to trick G the only thing left for me is to actually turn this site into a webshop. There is no way I'm going to start an actual store with an inventory and stuff. I just don't have the time and the investment is to great for me. My alternative was to start an amazon ecommerce store. Basically something like this WP Affiliate Store (google it) or with the help op this WP plugin WooCommerce amazon affiliates

    Any idea if this would be a problem solver? This would make me fight the serps with equal arms I guess but I don't know if G considers complete Amazon stores as equal e-commerce site?
