    Hello everyone!

    About me:

    I'm nineteen years old and pursuing an engineering degree. IM interests me for the challenge of optimizing a system and profiting from it more so than the common "I hate my nine to five" mentality. This is my first serious IM venture. I'm excited to share my experiences with the community here, from whom I have learned the vast majority of what I know about IM .

    Why start a journey?

    I started this amazon affiliate journey almost two months ago. This journey thread will serve as a record of my actions for myself and hopefully others who find it helpful to reference. Also, I find that many times comments spark ideas for the OP, so hopefully answering questions will aid my success. Hekke's thread was what drove me to action, so I encourage anyone considering starting an amazon site to check it out.

    The situation


    The plan was to create a review site, following Hekke's journey threads' format. All original articles, as I don't have the capital to spend on paying content writers. I believe the keyword is relatively easy, as the top ten sites are not very well optimized for my keywords and include things such as youtube video, amazon, etc. Things that are primarily ranking from page authority.


    My site has an EDM for my main keyword that has about 2000 monthly searches. So far, I have written about 5000 words content and added this to the site. I need to add much more content, but have been somewhat occupied with school. I built a few 2.0s last weekend to pump my site up, but am letting them age before linking back to my main site. My link building strategy will be based completely off a thread I read. Can't seem to find it right now, but when I do I'll post it here. I have created facebook, twitter, pinterest, google+, and youtube branded accounts. Also posted several review youtube videos( nothing fancy, just powerpoint), that are ranking page two in videos for some of my keywords.

    I use serps to check my keyword rankings. Currently, my "KEYWORD reviews 2016" is ranked 30, but most of my keywords are around or greater than 100 in google.



    Cool trick I just found on Competitor site


    You start your review article with a picture, and have the smaller pictures that typically make that picture the large picture, such as they have on amazon. Instead of clicking the smaller picture making it the primary picture, it links the user to amazon and drops a cookie. Boom! :cool:

    Total Cost: ~35 (domain,hosting,whois)
    Total Rev: 0

    Honestly, I'm not sure. Have you found this to be an important factor in ranking from your own experiences?
