.net matters for Amazon affiliate Program?

13 replies
I'm planning to buy a domain that comes with a wordpress site , for a low price , that has already Adsense on it. I want to offer Amazon products on it.

The problem is it has an extension .NET the .COM for the domain name I'm trying to register is taken and is for sell but for a much higher price.

The site will not directly accept orders and leads visitors to Amazon. I'm doing all this because I'm trying to apply for Amazon.com and hope I'll be accepted to their affiliate program since I live in Spain.

Do you think this is a good idea?:confused:

Another question is once I buy the domain how to transfer the site to my server safely?:confused:

As you can see this is my first time doing it.

MANY THANKS!!!!

    .net is grand, although, it's believed that .org is better... but who the hell really knows.

    Personally, I'd go with .org over .net.

    Don't worry too much about not bagging the .com... plenty of non .com's are doing quite well.

    An EMD is only a small part of the big SEO picture... which, is changing all the time, and some may argue that an EMD is useless... for SEO purposes anyway.

    If you're planning on flipping, then, of course .com is king... then, .org... .net

    Peace

      My experience is .net is much easier to rank than .org....

    .net extension is not bad for ranking well in search result. If you use the right technique of SEO then everything will work perfect.

    Someone could recommend a GOOD WSO that could help me buying websites for selling Amazon products or a technical WSO about what are the steps to transfer a domain to our server.
    Many thanks

      You can buy websites from those options but no-one can really guarantee that they will be low priced. And if they are low priced, then why are they low priced is another consideration.

      Have you maybe considered producing your own blog and using one of the several Amazon plugins available? Or, have you considered building your own Amazon store using something like Fresh Store Builder?

      Regards

    Hi Frank. Thanks for your patience. My problem is to be accepted by Amazon Affiliate Program where they ask for a website with at last little traffic before being accepted.
    I live in Spain and I want to promote Amazon.com but for this I need to fullfill their requirements.
    Once I have thier code I can create my own blogs.
    Am I doing right?

      Hello Ronaldo,

      I see what you are thinking. Buy a website with traffic (but no Amazon affiliate scripts on it) and apply for an Amazon affiliate account that way. And then build your own blogs after you have your Amazon affiliate account?

      So the idea of buying a website is to use it as a vehicle to get an Amazon affiliate account. Why not just build your own blog from the outset and then apply to Amazon?

      Why not see what websites are being sold for in your preferred niche on Flippa. Then when you have an idea, why not then see about how much it will cost you to build your own blog. There are many packages of Niche Blogs available here in the Warrior Forum. Go to Go Daddy to check on the availability of a domain, check out hosting packages (eg Hostgator packages are pretty reasonable) etc.

      You may have already considered the two options and you have found that buying a website is a better option than building your own. All I'm saying is, if you haven't considered both, only considering buying a website may not be the best, nor the most economical option.

      With regard to your original question - if the preferred .com version is not available then, as most "guru's" will tell you (I'm not a guru by the way, but I was told the same some time ago), then look for either a .net or a .org alternative.

      Not sure if any of this helps. Hope it does.

      Best of luck.

      Regards

      Frank

    I think the content matters a lot more than the domain. If you provide value to your readers then a .net extension shouldn't make a lot of difference.

    As for transferring the site, it's often as easy as taking a copy of the files (FTP) and a copy of the database then when you are happy that it's all running ok just update the domain nameservers to point at your server.

    I'm with Frank here. Buying a web site is all very well, but it's generally more expensive and you don't know if the domain name plus the site set-up is going to work for what you want it to do.

    Personally, I would simply buy a keyword rich domain name, even if it has to be a .net or .org. Either are nearly as good as a .com as long as your content is good. Then I would host it on HostGator or a similar host company where you can host as many domains as you like for a fixed monthly fee, and after that put a Wordpress blog on the site.

    Get a decent theme from the thousands of free themes there are available, and get some training on Wordpress generally and plug-ins in particular (there are hundreds of such packages available on this forum).

    Then concentrate on giving value to your prospective customers. The search engine rankings will follow, as will the earnings, in due course.

    Good luck with your venture.

    Hello I am new to forum, just start marketing about 10 days ago with Amazon. I get a blogspot blog and get my account, I do not know they even look for it so can they ban my accoun?

    I've also made 2 sells and earn about 9$. I write two articles then populate them with auto post tool (hxxp://fivedollarsoftware.blogspot.com) one of my friend suggest.
    She also says it is luck to earn such soon but who knows. I also have some squidoo lenses but stats show no visitors to my lens yet.

    I'd *always* go with a .com.. of course it depends how good the domain name is. If you have a 2 word exact match domain on a .net then go with that!
