Danny1111, it seems that you have a pretty specific method and that you keep it rolling pretty well and without headaches.
May I ask you for some general stats? Like... how many sites do you have in total, how many new ones do you create each month and how many of those sites you end up dropping after a year? And if it's not too much to ask, how much are you making per month? Grosso modo :)

Thanks a lot!

LOL .. your like the Energizer bunny - and I already have posted all that info.

right now I have 32 WP Sites - I had 37-38 and killed a few... I'm going to build out to 50 - because I have the 50 Site Plan on CMS Commander.

Since I started my first thread I've gone from $600 a month to $3000 a month ... in that time I've had earnings from $7 to $320 a day

I also lost about $1500 on Magento Sites all told and FSB I was robbed by the owner and may have broken even ... but I also lost a bunch of time working on these 2 things which I wish I had just put into Wordpress.

At this point though - it is not about me and how much I make anymore .. its about the people trying it at the present time and them finding some success ... cheers.

Honestly I have no idea what your wanting me to answer ? Trying to find topics to write about your Site ?? I have no clue.

For me - I don't have these dilemmas of what to do - I pick my niche - identify my products and accessories I'm going to use - pick out products to review - pick out article titles - find great images - get the affiliate links - put it all together the best I can ... do some basic Seo - check traffic after 2-3 months. If it works well I add more content/do more advanced Seo - if it doesn't I just keep doing simple Seo until it does - or until 12 months are up -- if its still failing then I kill the site.

So again - I just don't understand what your problem or issue is and where your failing to understand what direction to go in ??

Also what is available to every person is simply to check out the competition - see what theme and plugins they are using / check out their content - how they use affiliate links and check their backlinks and use their high PR ones.

I didn't mean the titles, i tought that i should describe a bit of what i have done so that you can understand what i mean.In short version:
Is it worth to write content on something that have no search volume?The titles are only examples, but they target the keyword.
This is related to this post you made:

Sorry for the delay, but you helped me allot!

What do you mean by killed? There are some projects which die on the road but those can still be used for SEO purposes and because of the low maintance fee it worth keeping them even if they make 3$/month :)

People wanted some examples I and just picked stuff off the top of my head . as a way to illustrate once you have your topic - you surround it with ideas/solutions ... I think if your struggling with this still - just go pay someone to provide you with the words to use - Im sure there is a service to provide this on BHW.

No for me its a pure business - I never would make a business where I created a private blog network mixed in with money sites at one host with a limited number of IP's. Also there is no value in a year old domain - with little traffic and content that's 12 months old on obscure buying keywords - that you wouldn't want linking to a client business site or any other site.

Plus a private blog network - needs better tools for maintenance and constant seo attention to really get the PR standing behind it ---- > plus that whole thing has a big target on its back from Google at the present time.

Anyway that's my view on the whole thing - I'm looking for sites that can make $100 a month each on average -- and if they don't they get the chop .. lol.

Hi Danny,
Thanks for the wonderful thread. Just a quick question, do you use or prefer to use Google webmaster tool?

Well it would be best to speak to the Bot Developer and let them tell you how to use their Bot.

I can't provide support on every product available on the market...... I got to get to work and make some money .. cheers.
I don't exactly need support with the bot, I wanted to know how you'd use a tool in general to promote amazon products on pinterest.

If your within a month of just setting up then you don't need to worry about that,i think you need to make sure that you have 20+ pages before you even think of any social media stuff, people nowadays expect to come to a decent site, and I think danny has explained that, he seems to prefer to wait for a couple of months before SM targeting.

I have as little to do with Google as possible - so no I don't use webmaster tools

Pinterest - Just read the PinPioneer thread - I don't think I need to explain the features of the bot as there are videos/guides etc - all I did was implement - I own 2 licences.

Just to be clear - I offer no services for Amazon - Not interested in any payments for advice - and I'm not giving away my discarded sites.

I have zero interest in seeing my sites bundled up as WSO's - making my sites obsolete and devalued.

If you can't figure it out then maybe go into CPA or providing services and come back to this later - when you have a greater knowledge .. which would make it easier.

I'm off .. cheers.

Danny, sorry for dabbling with keyword analysis again and again.. And I know that you don't give much importance to numbers, but still do you pick keywords by any search volume?? Do you pick your EMD having a search volume of 360?? I am just tryin to understand the numbers behind your analysis..

Well I've added a lot of content already, bit over 10 pages of content and still adding more. Site looks like an established one already, I figured pinterest would be a good social signal to add in next to facebook and twitter and also a way to make my first sales, as I remember reading that Danny banked quite nicely with it in his old thread.

Its a great thread, to bad you have to wait 3 months for Amazon to pay you, so 2 to 3 months ranking your site and then 3 months for getting paid if you're start selling right away, you'll be 6/7 months underway before you see a dime, don't think that a lot of people will have the patience to wait that long... i know i don't lol

But thanks for this thread cus i got some gems for my Aff marketing from you

Keyword Analysis

I deliberately am trying not to say that if its not this - then its worthless - because I know this is not the case.

Really the best thing to do is to get your brain working to figure these things out.

* If I build a good site - my conversion rate will be roughly 15% - If I build a bad site my conversion rate will be 3 %
* If the average price of my main products is $100 and the average price of my accessories is $25

Then how much traffic per month do I need to hit $100 .... remembering if you only have 1 Site that its going to be hard to raise your commission level too high

This is how I would figure it out from the beginning .... after that then you have to work with real results - the fact that you don't always sell what your marketing // the fact as the price of your products rise you tend to sell less and more accessories ..... also in a portfolio of 10 20 or 30 -- you will need to sell some lower priced items to boost up your overall Sales %

Anyway you can go through it and make your own decisions as to what works for you and the goals you set for your sites.

Wp Robot - I feel like I have covered this at least 10 times already .. so not sure I feel like going over it again -- its like the Pinterest question yesterday - these things have threads / support forums / guides and YouTube Videos ..... all I do is suck in the information and then go out and try it ... figure out what works and what doesn't.

As far as waiting for your first check your right - you got to wait a little bit for the first payment - but then you get paid every month - and unlike alot of other places I have worked with - Amazon pays into my Bank Account everytime .. no excuses .. no BS .. no worry about payments......... I never said that Amazon was for everyone - my suggestion was its something that alot of people should be looking at for Long Term Income -- and not some of these methods that rise and fall after a few months.

There is no Golden Rainbow of money in IM - that you can push one button and make money without lifting a finger -- but it does become easier once you start figuring out that multiple revenue streams is the way to do it .. and you start understanding what Seo is really and how to best use it to your advantage. The bottom line is that really no-one can save you --> you have to get to work and make it happen the best you can.

All the best today - and I hope you get plenty of Sales .. Cheers.

Well "a little bit" is kind of a understatement... if your a bit unlucky and in the learning curve, you will be seeing your first check in October 2013 :D, that is why i don't use Amazon as a first or only moneymaker.

I would advice people to mix it up a bit so you get paid more frequently and sooner. Getting paid keeps people motivated

There are a lot of niches that can use more then only Amazon, often you can mix it up with Clickbank or CJ

That is just my point of view on it, keep on the good work
