    Hello,

    I need a domain for my Amazon affiliate site. EMD is not available anymore. Should I go for a partly matched domain or an aged domain? I don't want to buy expensive domains, I just want to get a cheap and decent .com domain.

    Also I'd like to know what I should consider if I want to compare domains? Is there a guide or something?


    Thank you.

    Best Regards

    For an affiliate site, the most important is an user impression. Will he develop trust towards your site? Probably not if it's some ugly partly match combo. In this case, brandable unrelated name is much better.

    If it's for something you want your visitors to engage in, find something unique, aged, & aged. Make sure you research the aged domain you intend to buy. Backlinks, previous content, etc.

    That's a tough one. There are advantages to both - trust/experience vs speed in ranking. I would probably default to an aged domain, provided in hadn't been used for anything spammy.

    Okay, thanks for all the information so far. To compare domains can I use sites like domcop.com? And what kind of metrics are interesting for me? What is a good backlink profile?

    Aged domains are your best bet to rank fast, but they will come at a higher price. I have seen affiliate sites with some good domains (mostly priced over $ 100 on auctions) rank without any you backlinks for ClickBank niches.

    Nice aged domain within your niche with good metrics can be great.

    A perfectly aged domain that's brand-able and has a decent backlink profile. That's what you should go for, OP.

    Good backlink profile works better regardless of the metrics. The qualities of the good backlink profile are: not spammy, have high value, high authority and high DA backlinks.
