Default Show me some GOOD Examples of Amazon/Ebay Affiliate stores

I recently got the amazon/ebay php plugin for wordpress.

I was hoping to see some example of these affiliate stores that are doing well for you.

Please share your site and some tips to help me do well.

To be honest, you'll be lucky. Not many people hand over their affiliate sites and expose their niches so willingly.

Beautiful and affordable website templates

http://www.mychristmaslingerie.com/

Pulled in quite a bit last year, because I was ranked high for christmas lingerie.

However, with the recent Panda update a site like this doesn't work anymore. Way to many outbound links and duplicate content. Thin affiliate site... pretty much everything you DON'T want to DO.

But if i wanted to take the time to turn all the feeded content into original content and limit my products I could make good money again.

I'll worry about it in a couple of months.

Thanks for sharing that niche :p

The site ranked #3 currently has 6 backlinks

But I'm sure it gets tougher to rank during Christmas!

I would think that most people would not be afraid of "exposing" their site since they would already have a nice head start!

A head start? What does that count for if you expose a profitable niche to a forum filled w/ people who can put up majorly competitive sites and probably beat you easily and quickly?

And I think you're wrong about that. Too many people steal ideas in just this exact way, and everyone knows it. I've had it happen to myself a few times, as well, trying to help some people out. We've seen this dozens of times, and that's why you're not getting a lot of responses.

My point exactly. It sounds like you're looking for ideas to copy. I'm not saying you are, I'm just saying it sounds like it judging by that last statement.

I'm thinking that last statement could be finished like this: "I was hoping for something more reasonable that I could use on my own site, instead of researching things for myself."

The vast majority of the time, that's exactly what these posters are looking for.

[EDIT] BTW, LMC, that is an excellent niche. I'd be willing to wager you'll now have more competition this holiday season, though.

I don't think that's necessarily what he's doing.

When you first start out sometimes it just helps to see that other people are doing well with small sites that you'd be capable of building yourself.

You're not going to find many people here revealing their niche.

If you want to see some sample sites check out Review-azon's site, they have a few demos on there.

The main thing is you HAVE to focus on the content, not get carried away with stuffing your site with juicy product listings, which is so easy with this kind of plugin (users of my eBay plugin keep doing it too, despite my constant pleas). Forget Panda, Google has been slapping thin affiliate sites for YEARS. It's gotta be good, it's gotta provide value, or it just won't cut it.

In fact I am now taking this to the extreme of building out a site with quality content and not putting ANY product listings for the first 3 months or so, until the site has gained some authority. Guess what, for one site now I am at the top of page two without ANY backlinking and rising slowly but surely, and my search engine traffic is increasing by the day. Only when I get to page 1 will I consider adding affiliate links.

For me that is now becoming a best practice - I for one am sick of creating cheesy niche sites full of eBay listings only to see them disappear into Google oblivion.

The Wordbay eBay plugin - powerful, feature-packed, constantly updated since 2008! And now that Wordbay is a rock-solid evergreen product I have knocked $30 off the asking price - PERMANENTLY! --> Get v1.7.7 now!

if SEO was truly your bag you'd realise that a couple of hundred words won't really cut it, baby

I'm curious about this too, maybe I can copy the style to update my amazon website which recently been banned by google. I just want to have more confidence after updating all those posts into more in-depth review of the product, Google might reconsider to reindex the site. It would be great if someone can point me what kind of product review which can be considered compelling reviews, since it's impossible for me to actually get my hands on each product and test it myself.

take a look at this website :
doghairvacuum.org

I'm not sure about the traffic but this web certainly offers valuable review. It's an amazon affiliate website.

That is for people in niches that they have little knowledge about.

My niche is hiking, camping, fishing, hunting,,,, and I dont care who knows it.
