    Hi All,

    Recently i have created a website which has been running for just over a week now which uses WordPress, Woozone and a custom theme for my Amazon affiliation. To be absolutely honest, i didn't actually market research my particular niche and just went right into things which probably wasn't the best idea, but i decided to base it around a simple concept.

    I've also created social media pages, and using Massplanner to gain traffic through these pages which seems to help slightly, with approximately 10 users coming to the site daily, but sadly no purchase (Might be early days!)

    Basically i'm curious if there is anyone here who is able to check into my website and verify if i'm on the right track, and potentially give advice how to proceed?

    Any support would be highly appreciated.

    If you are so generous to review, please post here and i'll PM my URL.

    I think that is still normal...For you to have sale...You actually need hundreds or thousands of traffic coming to your site...

    Choose low competition long tail keywords and rank your site on them, the visitors searching long tails are potential customers, or make fb campaign to expose your products to the targeted audience.

    Woozone = quick ban in google. You are on wrong way. Why? Because you expect to get money from the simplest way - parsing Amazon. I think near million other users do the same and of course, will get ban in google with speed of light. If you want get money - make something valueable. I can go to Amazon and find all info much easy than on your site

    OP just a advice for you, never share your website with anyone on forums for review etc. Just visit Journey section, you will find tons of long threads discussing every single thing about amazon affiliates sites.

    Can you please explain how this plugin will automatically get a G ban? What if there were custom, original reviews for every product listed?

    Problem is in not in plugin, but in logic of this plugin. It just parses Amazon product and import it on your site. Just look on such site from user's view. If it has the same content like on Amazon, what is value of such site? Why do I need to use such site if I can go to Amazon and get the same but more actual information? The only good purpose of such plugin is when you have niche website and you imported only one type of products. But even in this case, it's much better when you mix content of site and offers from Amazon and this is not function of woozone. Just look at most popular review sites, c.net, techradar and how they use affiliate links. They make price comparison lists from different sites and attach it to product review. This is the best way, but, of course, it requires more work on content. And this is way for quality websites, not 1-day sites on woozone

    I agree you with 100%. Thanks for clarifying and going into detail. I wanted to make sure it wasn't the plugin itself.
