Build Rank & Bank an Amazon Affiliate Site

Comments 232

Hi Nick! December updates:)

Coming soon ๐Ÿ™‚ on the 4th….

Wow, so you finally made sale. You’re a pro SEO blogger. I enjoyed how you showed out every step one by one.

Have a nice day!

Thanks, no problem. My main keyword has seen a big drop because I took my eye off the ball and allowed lots of PBN backlinks to index with exact match keyword anchors…I am making adjustments now to set it right. I will be on the first page very soon.

With this update and the post in general, i now understand that finding easy keywords is one of most important factors in SEO and generating organic traffic to amazon affiliate websites. What are your plans to implement in backlink building for the next month; expired tumblr, seoclerk pbn or combination of both???. I’m just curious!!!

In month three I am going to go for a Tiered link building strategy using new Web 2.0 sites only. Tier 1 will be social signals and web 2.0 sites. Tier 2 will be Web 2.0 sites. Tier 3 will be social bookmarking. I will also add some more PBN backlinks if needed.

Waiting for the update ?????????

Update published. I am going to step up my efforts in month 3 to hit the top spot. All keywords are on page 2….the final push to the top now and start banking ๐Ÿ™‚

Nick,where is month 2 linkbuilding part ? I mean we want clearly what you have done in second month ?

ooooops….I will pop that into the post now ๐Ÿ™‚

Update complete….enjoy

Nick,why didn’t you used 300 links package in second month ? Any problem with that seller ? Iam thinking to use it for two of my sites.They are ranking in second page of Google 14,15,13,16,33 respectively. Total 5 posts of two sites.Do you think they will push my posts into first page of google ?

There isn’t a problem with the seller of that gig, I have used it before, it is okay. I opted to use the Fiverr gigs….if I remember right I already had a few in progress and did not want to push too many backlinks to certain posts. High PA web 2.0 backlinks should push your posts onto the first page…..the PBN backlinks will help too ๐Ÿ™‚

Just a heads up guys. I’ve had 33 tumblrs on the go for a few months with no problems so far.
Suddenly, since 1st nov all those using disposable emails are being terminated.

Here’s the tip, unless you have obviously abused the blog with spam or whatever, send a message to support, just ask why it s been terminated, I did that and s far 5 out of 5 have been re-instated.

Thanks for letting us know Steve. Just checked all my Tumblr blogs and they are okay ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks Katherine, I have had a lot of success with Amazon Affiliate sites….an easy way to make money online when done the right way.

wow congrats sir! waiting.

Results will be posted on November 3rd…

Hi Nick!

Any update, archive first page or any sale made in two month.

Update is coming soon…at the beginning of November…I have made sales yes ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Nick, for the SEO Clerks gig you recommended, that seller does not provide any report. For $30 that is a relatively big sum. How do you know if it’s legit or not?

I have used the gig. However I did not use it on WordPress sites. I used on my PBN sites, they all got a boost up the SERPs. If you use it on a WordPress site you should get the URLs as a pingback in your comments area.

This gig is only $5 and you get the URLs as pingbacks in the comments area of your WordPress dash.

Couple questions….

1. Question about the amount of links each month. Is this correct?
each post gets…

Month 1
10 tumblr backlinks
30 pbn backlinks

Month 2
10 tumblr backlinks
30 pbn backlinks

Month 3
10 tumblr backlinks
30 pbn backlinks

2. I have 5 pages on my Amazon site. When I order the 300 PBN links, what do I tell the guy to do? Just give him all 5 URLS and tell him to use the anchor text ratio of

exact keyword x10
URL x10
click here x5
visit this site x5

?

I’m just worried that there’ll be too many links right?

Thank you!!

Yeah sort of, I have deviated slightly from my origianl plan.

Month 1:
15 high PA Tumblr backlinks
30 PBN backlinks (SEO CLERKS GIG)

Month 2:
10 high PA Tumblr backlinks
30 PBN backlinks from different Fiverr Gigs

Month 3:
5 high PA Web 2.0 backlinks using different platforms with tier 2 new web 2.0 backlinks

2. You can do that, however it will be safer to order different Fiverr PBN gigs. You could stay away from PBN links if you want to and just use high PA Web 2.0 sites from different platforms.

The are the Fiverr PBN gigs you can use. All of these gigs provide PBN URLs for you to index slowly.

30 Unique posts on PBN
30 PBN backlinks with superb metrics
Rank website using high trust flow PBN backlinks
10 super strong PBN backlinks

Then there is the seo clerk gig:

40 contextual PBN backlinks for $5

Mix and match on each page. Ask them to use different sites if they have a large network.

I have used all of them, they are great for the price.

I bought an expired domain and it only has 11 backlinks. No spammy backlinks that I can see. But I started putting content on it and Google still won’t index my site. I added it to the Search Console and everything. Any ideas? Thank you!

Yeah, sounds like you have a spam domain that is not going to index. Did you use SEO Spyglass to check the backlinks?

No, I have a Chromebook and can’t use it. Guess I should have, eh?

Yeah definitely, it finds the most backlinks than any other free tool.

is there a way to unblock the domain? Or should I just get a brand new domain?

I throw away the domain and move onto the next one. It might be a lot of work to get the domain to index again. It has happened to me a few times, I just move onto the next site and re-use the content.

hi, what a great article you this will help me
that advise you to do for a site that is new?
thank you in advance
Morgan

Take a look at these cheap seo packages that are perfect to rank new sites.

Nick, since I had already been working on my site for a few months before I saw your way of doing it, I have not been able to copy your way exactly.

I have just one pillar article of 3,500 words, with a ton of kws covering all ranges and difficulties. I link to a dozen smaller, highly relevant articles from the pillar article (which I made (static) my front page) but I wasn#t sure weather or not to link back to the pillar article from each of my smaller articles (I know I need more articles, working on it)

What do you think? Is it good to link back to the pillar from smaller posts?

Definitely link to one main money article from other pieces of content you have, use exact match anchor each time for internal backlinks.

The 2 greatest problem is getting low comp keywords which are no where to be found and getting good content, in the past 5 of my sites have been penalized for thin content and spamming, which is hard to believe all work is gone , now I see just one page website ranking 2nd position on google with less than 1k words article, what is wrong? Now am thinking of going with one page site than labouring in vain. Besides instead of this amazon method, I think CPA is better , because you can unfold high MS keywords with low competition than buying keywords which at the end people are not able to pull their cards to purchase, even if they do , you end up getting 100-200$ a month from one site where as one site can net you 200$ a day and above on CPA once ranked. Well thanks for putting up this resource. Tell me more about one page sites and multi page sites.

It takes time to find low competition keywords, start with just one and write some extensive 2000 words content around it….then get to work promoting the content on web 2 platforms for those all important backlinks. It takes time to build up a quality site around a particular niche, if you rush it you will not get anywhere at all. One page sites can be hard to rank in the top spot because you have no internal links, you need to build up a decent resource around a particular subject. I agree that Amazon can be hard to make big affiliate bucks, clickbank will get you a better return for your traffic. Thanks for stopping by.

Damn, I forgot to mention that I sometimes used my brand name as the user name on my comments, I realise now that could cause a ban, I was trying to diversify my anchor texts.

I was impressed with the 30 pbn links from the fiverr gig. All the links are on high trust flow domains, but of course on an orphaned page, I wonder how much value these links really have?

I also forgot to mention in my post above that I am in a very difficult and competitive market (computer related) with most of my keywords ranked as 80%+ difficulty in seoquake toolbar that’s why im so happy so far with rankings.

Also another fantastic bit of free software is Keywords Everywhere a firefox addon (not sure about chrome) it somehow manages to get proper search volumes from google and not the shite google adwords gives us now.

Also KE pops up in other places like search pages and keyword toolsand all sorts, it’s superb for a freebie and the guy is really nice and asks what features you want done etc.

Don’t worry about using a brand anchor on comments, just don’t do it again. The Fiverr PBN backlinks don’t have any great value, you get what you pay for, for $5 they are awesome for pushing easy keywords up the SERPs and that’s all.

You should most definitely try and find some low competition keywords in your niche, unless of course these high competition keywords have high search volume and a first page ranking will see you some decent traffic.

I have used “Keyworde Everywhere” too, it is very good….presents keyword search volume in the search pages…I used it with Chrome but it stopped working so I don’t use it anymore….I like to use Wordze.com for search volume data.

I think I will take another look at the Keywords Everywhere plugin, thanks for the share ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi again Nick
Thanks for your previous reply. I just wanted to let you know my site, which is 10 weeks old, has just started to really get some decent rankings. Up until now it has been the google dance for most of my keywords, but today nearly every major keyword has jumped up, some by as many as 40 places on google.

I already have 2 keywords on the first pages of bing and yahoo.

All I did over the last week was add one small article of 600 words, added two tumblr links directly at posts, and indexed of the cheap pbn links from your guy on fiverr. I’m not sure if its any one thing, or all of them that helped. Or maybe google has decided my 3 months is nearly up? Registered the domain on 4th aug this year (cheap+keyword.net)

Anyway, I am really happy. Although I don’t see much in a traffic boost, and no sales on Amazon yet.

If I could of attached screenshots on here I would have of my rankings s you could see for yourself.

A few weeks ago I did some commenting on niche related sites, it looks like my domain got spammed banned as soon as I put that domain name in a comment its not accepted, it even happened on here, but I suppose you must of seen it in the spam bin and un-spammed it? Thanks.

I am using another of my sites for this comment so it will hopefully get through.
My comments were all relevant, but a bit short, maybe 1 or two lines, do you think that could get me comment banned on some sites?

Also, I have a tip for people like me who are not making money and can’t afford tumblingjazz at ยฃ63 (the pound is very weak against the $ at moment) for just $5 a month there is a site that you can mass upload photos to your tumblr queues. there is also a free option to upload just 50 photos a day. I like it as I’m trying to build up my tumblrs, but I have 33 of them and it’s getting too time consuming, if only there was a free liker\reblogger I would be made ๐Ÿ™‚

Sorry for long post I am a bit pumped and wanted to give something back here.

the site is called picloadr (I won’t put the url, just google it)
I ‘m not affiliated or anything, its just a good service.

Steve.

That’s great new Steve ๐Ÿ™‚

If comments add some value to the post then they will be accepted just about all of the time.

You can also use Rankwyz for free to upload content to Tumblr, check out me automate your backlinks post for this.

I will take a look at Picloadr now, thanks for the share ๐Ÿ™‚

why you remove this “30 PBN posts Fiverr gig” ?
Previous you mention this fiverr gig and now you update post with new seoclerk pbn gig.
Is there any wrong fiverr gig?
Which one is better “30 PBN posts Fiverr gig”or “40 PBN seoclerk”gig?
I ordered 40 pbn seoclerk gig for one keyword.
Can i orderd another 40 pbn links for other keyword(new page) or wait few days?
Thanks

I removed the Fiverr gig because I though the seo clerk one was better value for you guys. Both gigs are great, use any of them. The Fiverr gig is here if you want to use it.

I prefer the seo clerks gig myself. You can definitely order the gig again for another keyword (different page)….I have done it on the epilator site recently without any problems. The links don’t count until they are indexed anyway.

Oh I am sure u had heard of GSA ser links having very poorly index rate by the gangster big G.s serving no purpose to blast or buy in the market.

True…I use it very rarely…if hundreds out of the thousand dropped index there is something gained. GSA SER blog comments on pages that are indexed are a good way to go.

Hi Nick,its been sometime I didn’t visit here.omg so many comments seems like your every posts is a smashing hit.

I just like to check ,is buying a irrelevant aged or expired domain with clean deCent backlinks profile then redirect to my new domain OK? (Totally different niche)of course I will wait for the expired domains to get index again after buying).

Or how about buying 2 domain names(don’t give a damn bout the backlinks) with redirect to another domain name (bought in name cheap) and redirect to my new domain?
I will blast the hell out of tHe 2 newly bought domain names with massive bought garbage links (contextual mainly) with redirects to my third bought domain and a final redirect to my new site.
Just like to hear from you regarding the 2 strategies above.
Because the pain of buying expired domains (relevant niche ) is tough to find.i mean one with solid backlinks profile.and relevant niche.

OK sorry,last one.when we buy link packages( contextual or not)how to verify the links are indexed?
No point to buy links and a lot are not indexed right?which leads to Zero link juice.

Thank You

Thanks Jeff…buying an expired domain that is not niche specific to your money site and doing a redirect will be okay yes.

how about buying 2 domain names

That’s not a bad idea Jeff, the rank juice will flow to the new domain and onto your money site….worth a try. Personally, I wouldn’t redirect to a new domain, I would do them to a web 2.0 site….good idea ๐Ÿ™‚

To verify links are indexed I just pop the URL into Google search.

That’s true, if they are not indexed they are worthless.

Hi Nick
I have taken a lot of advice from his post and it has helped me push up my rankings, I thank you for that. This must be the bes guide I have ever read, fir a change it appears nothing is a big secret, not even the site\niche, again thank you for being so open, few will do this.

I noticed you say you have UK and U.S Amazon accounts. I’m in UK and about 70% of my visitors are from the U.S so I am losing sales big time.

How do you know where to send the visitor when they click an Amazon link? Is there a plugin or something?

Steve Bale

No problem Steve, glad I could help. Good to have you here ๐Ÿ™‚

You should most definitely get yourself a U.S Amazon account….you are leaving money on the table there.

There is a plugin to localise Amazon affiliate clicks, you could try Amazon Link Engine (free). I know that EasyAzon is well regarded, but it is not free.

I don’t use a Plugin….I drop two buttons in the post; one will read “UK – SEE PRICE” the other “USA – SEE PRICE”. This works a treat for me.

Hey nick.
So will one set of 300 PBNs be enough to rank 5 KWs?Or will you be purchasing another set the month after?

For my project I will be purchasing another set the month after. It’s possible that one run will rank you, it’s unlikely, but possible. It all depends on your keywords and the other sites that rank on the first page. Some things are out of our control, like the sites already sitting on the first page gaining backlinks too….you need to order them….then asses the situation after 3 weeks to make your next move. Some sites they will push to the top, others will not.

Hi Nick Very Great share… Just a question if I have 10 low difficult keyword can I buy the PBN 600 post for 50$ for that 10?Do you think it is safe?thanks

Yeah sure, just make sure the seller uses different sites. You could also try this PBN backlinks serice to mix things up. Make sure you mix up your anchor text ๐Ÿ™‚

Great post and interactions!! I want to ask is
1) it a must to use PBN’s for this project?
2) Does it mean the tumblr methods you gave us won’t work for this type of projects?
3) Why did you choose PBN’s as against tumblrs this time
4) You have been ranking this type of projects before now, using PBN or Tumblr , which is more effective for this type of easy projects?
5) If you are to create tumblr backlinks for this 5 keywords, do you post all 5 different keyword backlinks in 1 single post on 1 tumblr subdomain?
6) How do you overcome thin content from google? Must we publish new article(s) every month on our site to avoid this?

Example:

Keywords:

best epilator
Epilator reviews
Remington epilator review
Best epilator for face
Emoji epilator reviews

Tumblr:

Epilator.tumblr.com

Now , will you put all 5 keywords above in a single post on Epilator.tumblr.com ?

Or

you will create 5 different post on epilator.tumblr.com , and let each post target each keyword on 1 tumblr subdomain?

This way I think the 50 tumblr domains has been reduced to 10!! Thanks and your answer will be highly appreciated.

1. You don’t have to use PBN backlinks to rank your Amazon affiliate sites. You can use the web 2.0 backlinks strategy.

2. Tumblr backlinks will work ranking Amazon affiliate sites with low seo competition keywords.

3. I chose PBN backlinks because I do not have the time to do the Tumblr backlinks.

4. Both are effective. The web 2.0 backlink strategy is the safe option.

5. I would post a different piece of content on a different Tumblr sub domain blog each time. I would not do one post and link to all 5 posts on my money site from that one piece of content. You will need 50 Tumblr blogs for this.

6. Publish as much content on your money site as you can. As long as you produce enough posts to grab some internal backlinks to your money pages you will be good to rank. When your money pages rank number one you might then want to go after 5 more pages. It really all comes down to how many low seo competition score keywords that you can find….it is different for every site.

Oh ,thanks. But why do you choose wordz against Keywordrevealer ? Can’t this projects be used on Keyword revealer alone?

Wordze gives you as manu keyword searches as you need even on a free account, Keyword Revealer only gives you 3 keyword searches per day on a free account. I want this tutorial to be open to everyone and not just people that have a paid keyword revealer account. You can use keyword revealer only if you want to, I prefer KWFinder.com these days for seo competition checks.

Nick, i would like to say a big thanks to you for the great work done here. I am about to quit making money with amazon affiliate before i came accross your site. Honestly, the case study gives me hope, please keep it up. And, i would like to ask you few question, thus:
1. Which plugin did you use to displace social icon on epilatorly.com?
2. Its seems i couldn’t find link to the fiverr PBN gig in the post, can you pls reply with the link to the gig, i would like to try it out??
Instant reply will brings hope. Thanks in advance.

Never quit, keep on testing and success will come ๐Ÿ™‚ Remember that keyword research will make or break your site.

1. The social signals display plugin on epilatorly is called: AccessPress Social Share
2. Click here to see the fiverr gig I used.

Keep on going…you will get there. If you need any help at all drop me an email.

Hai Nick,

Do you think those 300 blog posts will really help us to get into first page ? And what about the google real time penguin in this case ? I had seen many blogs deindexed & hit by penguin due to lots of spam links .

How many outbound links on each domain?

And how many backlinks on average are pointing to those tumlrs which you bought from seoclerks 70 for 5$ ?

I got some great Tumblrs with that gig. The number of backlinks will be different for everyone, the service provider is only concerned about page authority. I had Tumblrs with 1 and 2 backlinks, which I did not bother to register…most had more than 10 backlinks, I registered over 40 of them. It’s worth it if you do not have time to scrape them.

I bought the gig, also bargain to get 70 Tumblrs for 5$. But only 4 out of 70 Tumblrs have backlinks and only 4-5 backlinks. Which tool do you use to check backlinks?

At the moment I just use MozBar….I only register a Tumblr if it shows more than 100 backlinks on MozBar. I have had success with Tumblrs with only 5 backlinks…I like to keep the Tumblr registration process quick and easy….MozBar ensures this….sometimes it is better to scrape them yourself if you have the time. I have used the SEO CLERK services before and got some Tumblrs with thousands of backlinks, other times they have been poor. If the Tumblr only has a few backlinks but the PA is still high it is certain that those 5 backlinks are of a fairly decent quality, after all they are passing on PA to the Tumblr….so it is pass onto your money site. It’s about quality backlinks too….not just quantity.

They will definitely help you get to the first page if you use them right. Don’t blast one page on your site with all those backlinks, you will have a big problem then. Penguin is not a problem if you build the backlinks wisely, building backlinks is always a risk no matter what you do. You are not blasting hundreds of backlinks at one page here, you need to spread the backlinks to at least 5 pages on your site, the service provide lets you provide as many URLs as you like. Mixing up your anchor text wisely will also help avoid a slap from G. Outbound links are different, he has lots of sites, you will have to email the seller to make sure he uses those domains that he supplies you the stats with.

Hi Nick, you motivate me, you are sharing good stuff. here i have one question,are you going to 60 PBN backlinks to each keyword or will disturbed to 5 keywords.

I will do 60 PBN backlinks to each post. The key is to index them slowly.

Hi Nick, I was eagerly waiting for the updates. Good to see your keyword 2,3,4 coming into page 2-3 from not in Top 50 in just one month. I am following your journey and visiting RankersParadise daily in order to learn new things from your posts and your comments in conversation with other visitors. All the best mate.

Thanks Tejas, good to have you dropping by. I will have those pages ranking no. 1 after three months ๐Ÿ™‚ Let me know how you are getting on with your affiliate projects, always happy to learn how other people are getting on.

Nick, me and many others who are going to start thier ranking journey are very lucky because we are getting a tested and spoon fed strategy which we can outsource cheaply or do it ourself. I am littile busy so will hopefully start my journey from next week onwards. I will be mailing you with some questions.

Thanks.

Great to have you here Tejas, let me know how you get on. Looking forward to your emails ๐Ÿ™‚

Nick,

How exactly you are promoting epilatorly.com ? I had asked this because site got lot of comments organically & you are using any other backlink technique other than pbn links ? Did the site started making money ? Iam waiting for update on this.

P.s: Did you remembered that 40 pbn blog{High pa web2.0} posts in one day for 2$ gig on seoclerks ? You featured it earlier in “5 More keywords post” Later you removed from that post.Iam thinking to use it.Is there any problem with it ?

Hi Mahesh, thanks for asking and coming back to Rankers Paradise. I am not promoting epilatorly at all, the comments were paid for using an seo clerk gig to influence Google, looks like there is interactivity on the blog when there isn’t. This will help the site push up the SERP’s, I will reveal all in the update, which I plan to do on October 3rd with ranking and earnings report.

Yeah I tried the gig and it was not good at all, all the posts were from the same platform and they were not very good at all. She used the same content on every blog, they were not worth indexing, waste of money even though it was only $2. I do not want to recommend anything that is not any good on here, so I test them out and report back ๐Ÿ™‚

Nick, can you also explain the site structure in the next update? Is there any pattern you structure the categories for the Epilatorly site? Most posts are categorized in several categories. Is this for inter-linking purpose or on-page factor? Also, I see you allow the tags to be indexable, right?

Hi Rio. The site structure is simple, have your money posts (keywords) on the main nav menu and also a link to your blog section. Then add blog posts to your blog section, each new blog post will link to your 5 money posts (keywords) with exact match anchor. There is no structure I work to in setting up the categories, just add what fits as you go. You can bang posts in several categories, pop them into any category that fits, there is no special structure to it. We are just doing the additional blog posts to add content to the site and get those internal links done to our money posts (keywords). Everything is set up with our 5 money posts in mind, all for inter-linking. The tags are indexable, let big G index what it deems fit.

Hey nick, I had a few questions.
BTW I have been tracking your ranking and all the kws are in page 2!
Anyways, I just launched a new Amazon affiliate website today and was wondering would it be safe to use this method on my new site?The KC,s are below 19 for 6 keywords(using kwrevealer).
I have seen serps movements on my old website but not sure if these are safe for new sites…

Hi Fahid, yeah I thought they were all around page 2…that’s after just one month, well nearly…I am on track for a number one ranking ๐Ÿ™‚ in 3 months for those keywords. epilatorly.com was a new site, it is definitely safe to use this method on a new site. Make sure you do the social signals first…wait a few days…maybe done some Tumblr backlinks and then hit the site with some PBN backlinks…not too many and make sure you mix up your anchors. Slow and steady…index the links when you get the report…just do 3 a day and you will be good to rank.

I have a game plan in mind…
Month 1- social signal and tumblr for diversity.
Month 2-PBN link + Free Backlink for diversity.
Month 3- 5PBN from SeoClerks.
Month 4-Tumblr,Blogger and some weebly keeping kW as anchor text below 10%.

Hope to rank and bank using these!
๐Ÿ˜€

Got some pretty nice buying KW’s…Some YouTube and Forums are ranking for those!

Mega, if YouTube vids are ranking high you are likely to join them ๐Ÿ™‚

Sounds good, let me know how it goes.

Do you just copy and paste reviews from customers on Amazon onto your money site? How do you go about doing the reviews?

Thanks Nick!

I don’t copy and paste the reviews, I re-write them in my own words. Try to make sure your content in unique.

Hi Nick,

Thanks for your time and effort in putting up such a great blog with really superb quality content and advice, very much appreciated!

Sorry to bother but m having problem with Wordze’ registration. After reg there’s no email acknowledgement, login credential dun work as well. There’s no support link nor contact either, any ideas on how to get hold of them?

Thanks much!

Here is the Wordze Contact page. For some reason you can only get to it after you have logged in.

It’s a catch-22 situation :(P ..can’t even login as credentials aren’t recognised without the first acknowledgement email reply from wordze. It would seems they have closed off new subscribers? Too bad then. Thanks anyways!

That’s a shame, it’s a really useful tool…perfect alternative to Google Keyword Planner, which I do not use anymore. I just tried to sign up for a new account, no luck. I have sent them an email, you can contact them at: getsupport@wordze.com ๐Ÿ™‚

Not sure if you know, but one part of the social signals package from SEOClerks is 1 facebook share with 800 likes, not 800 shares. Not sure if it is effective at all.

No I did not know that Ownen, thanks for letting me know. It’s not a great signal as if it was 800 shares, but it won’t do any harm.

Hey Nick,

SpyFu is not free right? I tried signing up but it seems there’s a fee.

Yeah it’s free, you do not need to sign up. Just go to the home page and enter a keyword or a URL in the search box ๐Ÿ™‚ You get more detailed results on a paid plan, you do not need an account to get seo competition scores for selected keywords.

It looks like you take some content directly from the product’s Amazon page on your epilator site, is that right?

If so, do you rewrite it or is it straight copy+paste from the Amazon site?

For example, on this page: epilatorly.com/best-epilator/

Yeah I just re-write the Amazon reviews. Don’t ever copy and paste to your money site, duplicate content is a big no no.

In the Best Epilator article why you choose to review just one product as the best most epilators can have different options for each individual?

Like I say in the post “Your content has to be relevant to the keyword”, relevancy is so important. People want the decision made for them, they are looking for the best epilator, not the best epilators. They have other options around the site, have a sales funnel in mind, I want to push them towards the more expensive model, it helps that it is the best too.

Hi I really very impressed because it was step by step guide and also do not hide any thing even domain name. As above you mention going to drop 10 expired Tumblr backlinks to each of the 5 posts each. I do not understand you mean you will give back link from tumbler to each keyword i.e Best Epilator=5 tumblr back links right?
Also update it regular i want to see result how it work thanks.

Regard

I will do 10 Tumblr backlinks to each of my selected money keywords. “Best Epilator” will get 10 tumblr posts…”best epilator for face” will get 10 Tumblr posts etc. I will use different Tumblr sub domains for each and every post. I will keep this updated for sure. My selected keywords will be ranking high in Google search after 3 months.

10 Tumblr backlinks for each keyword. So 5 keywords = 50 different Tumblr domains, or 5 keywords = 10 domains, each domain link to 5 keywords?

That’s correct, you will need 50 different Tumblr sub domain sites for 5 keywords.

The fiverr seller provides 30, 40, and 50 PBN blog posts all for $5. What made you choose only 30? Does the seller drip-feed the links?

Hi Owen, even if you choose the 50 PBN gig from that seller he only provides 30 PBN backlinks anyway. I have used them all, so I selected the 30 PBN gig so people do not feel let down by the gig. I will not recommend anything here that I have not used myself and know works.

Nick, when you do inner posts for internal links, do they have to meet the criteria clarified in the Step 3? For example, do they must link out to an authority site?

No, thanks for asking this question. I should have put this in the post. The posts for internal links follow all of the criteria in step 3 other than I only write 1000 words and not 2000 and I do not link out to an authority site, I only link to my 5 money pages with exact match anchor text.

Hey ,

I am very impressed after reading your article ๐Ÿ™‚ , The best part I like about you is you are not hiding any thing and giving your secret sauce to rank and bank.

I would like to share something with you and your readers also , I am working on ongoing amazon niche site case study on my blog – http://commonstupidman.com/amazon-niche-site-case-study/ .

Here I shared how I made commission on my first month only and that too with out backlinks. I ll be updating more case study part in future also . As of now I am also working on backlinks so hope fully September end or October first week Ill publish case study.

I am subscribing your blog also so that we can connect over email and ill get update when even your publish some awesome content .

Thanks And Keep Shining Mate

Thanks Shahnawaz, great article by way, it is definitely something Rankers Readers will be interested in, thanks for sharing. I have subscribed to your blog also, I am interested to see how your site turns out. Thanks for stopping by, keep pumping out the content ๐Ÿ™‚

Hey Nick ,

Thanks a lot for appreciation ๐Ÿ™‚ , Yup ll let you know when I publish next case study. by the way you have awesome content really ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks Shahnawaz….keep coming back…make sure you join the forum if you haven’t already ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi nick, I’m following this case study and building my own website. I’m creating more posts for the internal links purpose as you mentioned. But I’m curious that using exact anchor text is strict to the success of your epilatorly site? I don’t link my posts with exact anchor text would it be an issue to the startegy?

In my experience with this, it doesn’t HAVE to be exact match to work well. You definitely want to try to toss in exact match on a post or two, but others can be partial matches and still give you a decent little boost.

The biggest thing IMO is making sure your content is great and relevant. Filling your site up with a ton of good content can sometimes give you rankings without building a single link (it’s rare and takes a while, but it CAN happen).

So, yeah, try to work in your exact keyword, but, let’s say you’re chasing “best blender” – it’s perfectly fine to use phrases like “our favorite blenders”, “top-rated blenders of 2016”, “best blenders for the money” etc. Heck, even using generic “click here” or “this article” can help a bit.

Thanks Brad. I love to see your chats with Nick. You always give me some good ideas. Btw, thanks for clearing my mind. ๐Ÿ™‚

Perfecto….Brad…..you are going to do a guest post soon ๐Ÿ™‚

Internal backlinks are very important to ranking the site. Every time I write a new post I drop an internal backlink to my 5 money posts with exact match anchor. This tells MR Google Bot what my posts are about, lots of internal backlinks will have a huge influence pushing the posts up the SERPs. It’s not a huge ranking signal, not doing this step will not make it impossible to rank a site no. 1 in Google search. However, if you are starting a new site I do recommend that you do it.

Internal linking is awesome. I have sites that literally pop up in the top 5 after just a couple of days due to this strategy alone. Again, though, that’s with my “authority sites”, if you will, where I have 50, 100, or even 200 posts on them.

It works wonderfully on sites with 10-30 posts as well, too, though. And they’re the easiest links you can get. Easy wins if you can just get your fingers on the keyboard.

Hello, Thanks for share great case study, i like your style , you explain all thing and no anything hidden,,that’s amazing.
i have 1 important question : can we use span content (rewrite article with online tool) to rank a site, or we use PLR article to rank amazon site ?

Do not use spun content on your money site. You can use spun content on your PBN sites that backlink to your money site.

Hey Nick,

Great stuff here. Awesome guide Thanks.

Here are a couple questions for you..
How Can i Create My Own Custom Dreamweaver Template To make my blog design relevant to my niche?

I taught myself HTML5 and Javascript. Dreamweaver is WYSIWYG software. Save as template, make sure it is a responsive design for all devices, easy to do using CSS. I always go for simple designs, white background, black text. I can knock a Dreamweaver site up in ten minutes.

Who are you nick?
i’m hooked on your articles.

HA HA HA….just a guy hooked on making online passive revenue streams….

Thanks Nick!! Question: When doing the keyword research, does the keyword have to pass ALL the competition tests?

Moz Bar, SpyFu, Keyword Finder, and Keyword Revealer

Example: one keyword I found passes the Moz Bar and SpyFu tests, but scores a 41 on KW Finder and 38 on KW Revealer.

Should I try to rank this keyword, or wait until I find a keyword that passes ALL the tests?

It seems like a good keyword but I don’t want to bite off more than I can chew. Thanks!!

I would go for keywords that pass all tests. 41 for KW Finder and 38 for KW Revealer is a little high. You are going to need plenty of niche relevant backlinks to rank for keywords like these. I would pass on that keyword. Have you checked the backlinks using SEO Splyglass that point to the top ranking site? Are they any good? Does it look like they are using PBN backlinks? Is the content any good on the site sitting in the top spot?

I’ve found that it’s best to target keywords that hit in the range of 10-30 on Keyword Revealer. I don’t typically use all of the other tools myself. I’m more of a ‘just go for it’ guy if the top 5 look like sites I can challenge.

But, so far, most of my wins have come from keywords in that 10-30 range. Beyond that you’re usually dealing with stiffer competition and that means it’ll be significantly harder to get to page 1 and especially crack the top 3 spots.

I do have a few posts in the 6-8th positions for a few keywords in the 35-40 range, but they took a much bigger investment to get there. We’re talking $100s on high quality PBN links, 301 redirects from relevant domains, expired Tumblrs, etc. And this was done on some of my aged websites that have DA/PA scores of 20+, not brand new domains.

So… to answer your question – yes, it is possible, but be prepared to really work for it and wait it out big time. In most cases you won’t hit the top 3 for these tougher keywords for 6 months or longer. They can definitely be worth the investment in the end, but you definitely want to stack your portfolio with a lot of the easier keywords first for quick wins and to generate some revenue in the meantime.

I do not to go over 25 on KW Revealer. I like “just go for it kind of guy”, that’s how it needs to be. You need to get a sense for ranking, the tools will only take you so far, gut instinct is what I go by, which comes from trial and error. The more sites you build and test and play with, the more you learn and the more you find a knack for knowing what you can rank no. 1 for. It’s key to keep in mind that you will not find a totally perfect keyword, sometimes you do just have to go for it ๐Ÿ™‚ Definitely start off small, build up a small income on easy keywords and work from there.

Couldn’t agree with you more.

This is honestly just like any other skill… practice makes perfect. Even when you’ve been at it for years you’ll still flop on some, but then you’ll find a few golden keywords that make up for it. It’s just a matter of keeping your foot on the gas, pumping out the content, and continuing to build links.

It all comes together in the end.

Hey Nick,

Glad to see you making new posts. Awesome guide on creating an Amazon affiliate site.

Here are a couple questions for you..

You mention using the 30 PBN posts Fiverr gig and stated that you use these for the keywords:

Exact Match (10x)
URL (10x)
click here (5x)
visit this site (5x)

Does the Fiverr seller allow you to specify this? Most just want you to give them keywords and fly with it. His gig asks for 5 keywords.

Also, are you not concerned with getting hit with an over-optimization penalty with your exact match anchor text percentage sitting at over 30%?

From my experience… anything over 10% is heading into the red zone where you could likely get your site smacked with the penalty.

Hi Brad,
The Fiverr seller of the PBN links does allow you to specify your anchor text. I have ordered the gig for all five keywords (pages) that I am targeting for the epilator site. I actually went a little more aggressive on the other pages. This is what I gave him when I ordered;

URL:

gave epilator site URL (page I am trying to rank)

ANCHOR TEXT:

keyword (exact match)
URL
click here

The first order that I did he put the “URL (10x)” all in the anchor text, including the “(10x)…slight mistake, but he rectified. Now I keep it nice and easy for him, just give him the details as laid out above. Then you get 10 exact, 10 url and 10 click here PBN backlinks. It’s working really well, I am also going to do a few more things to help the site rank, I will update the post soon with these extra details.

I have not been hit so far with the 1 in 3 exact match anchor strategy. There isn’t any formula to work by here, 30% seems high, but it works. I have many sites on this strategy and have not been hit. It’s not just one site, so it’s not down to luck ๐Ÿ™‚

Good to hear from you again.

Awesome stuff. I tend to be pretty nervous about my anchor ratios. Even on the pages I’ve been building Tumblr links to and such I’ve kept the % a bit lower than you recommend. I’m overly cautious with it at times. But that’s because a lot of my sites are authority sites (50-100+ pages) that I’d rather not lose to a penalty.

I’m going to give this little method a shot, though. It’s quick, easy, and cheap and if it works it seems like something you could scale up very easily.

I have been using these kind on PBN links on quite a few affiliate sites, I have not had any problems at all so far. Just remember to mix up the anchor text and you will be okay. I know what you mean about being nervous trying it on aged affiliate sites, when you see other affiliate sites ranking number 1 with PBN links it makes it all the easier to take the jump. It’s always a risk with PBN backlinks, especially if you did not set up the network yourself, you can’t be 100% certain that they did not leave any footprints. If you keep them down to a minimum, 100 max per page you are going to be okay. Like I say, I haven’t had any problems so far,If I do I will just move my content to another domain and start again. Your content is never lost, all that hard work writing is still there. Let me know how you get on ๐Ÿ™‚

How many sets of the 30 PBN links do you think it’ll take for you to rank your main epilator keyword in the top 3? Just curious. I know the sets are cheap, just wondering if it’ll take multiple to crack the top slots.

It will take 3 sets to rank no. 1 (when you order each time make sure he uses different domains, give him a list of the last lot of backlinks he created). I am also going to drop 10 expired Tumblr backlinks to each of the 5 posts each month. In three months time it will hit the top spot. I am going to update the post to say what else needs to be done. Internal backlinks are important, I will create 2 or 3 new posts (1000 words) per week for the first month with internal backlinks to my five selected keywords. Internal backlinks are underestimated by many, you can use exact anchor text every time and will be a very important part of ranking this site. I will also bring in 30 days of traffic, mostly from social signals and then purchase some blog comments on the posts for engagement. I will also throw in some cheap gov and edu backlinks, all will be done on the cheap to show how easy it is to rank these small affiliate sites ๐Ÿ™‚

Sounds like a good plan.

And, yeah, internal links work really well when you use quality relevant content. I’ve ranked pages on some of my sites solely from internal linking. It drives relevancy and authority. With some of the low competition keywords that can be all you need to hit page 1. Getting to #1 usually takes some links still, but not nearly as many.

One of my sites ranks in the top 5-7 within 2-3 days every time I publish a new article because it has 200+ quality posts and a good amount of interlinking. It has a ton of built up authority now. I actually outrank some very big domains with it because of relevancy/authority.

Anyway, I’m getting started with this method on one of my sites and may implement it on a couple others as it looks like quick & easy rankings. Will probably work pretty well on some my pages that are already page 2-3.

Yeah it’s an easy way to rank, not too much work. It will certainly pump those pages sitting on page 2 and 3 onto page 1. Let me know how it goes…

I’ll keep you posted on it. I just put in an order for 13 sets of the PBN links on Fiverr for 13 different URLs. I’ll index them slow over the next month, assess where the rankings end up, and rinse/repeat as needed.

Yeah let me know how it goes.

Whelp, already having to request a major revision on all 13 sets of the PBN links I ordered. The guy didn’t follow my anchor text instructions at all and used my main keyword for pretty much every post despite me stating I want 10x URL and 5x the other keywords which were a couple variations and generics.

Hopefully he fixes it or I’m going to have to go order a bunch of links to the URL and generics to offset the anchor profile. And he used nearly the exact same domains for every order. If he doesn’t have more than 30 sites that’s going to be next to useless if you order more than 2 URLs per each website you have.

That’s not good, at least they won’t be indexed yet. He will fix it I’m sure. He has been spot on for me so far. He did repeat a few domains for me too, which is not too much of a problem. He states that he has a pretty big network, you have to give him a list of what he has already used so that he does not repeat. Let me know if he doesn’t fix it….

Yeah, he said he’s working on it so we’ll see.

And, yeah, I requested different domains for each order. This was all part of one big order so it should have been clear what I wanted. I don’t think he bothered to read my instructions honestly.

Sounds like he just went ahead and blasted the backlinks to your site without reading your instructions. I suppose for $5 they don’t want to do too much work. The links are okay for the price, will work for easy keywords.

Yeah, I think that’s the case too. He is reworking them right now, though.

I’ve actually had some of my keywords pop up to page 2 just from the social signals I blasted at them. And a couple are actually #1 to #3 for secondary keywords already.

Like I said, even if the issue isn’t resolved I’ll just get another set of links to offset the anchor distribution so that it’s not dangerously high.

Hai Nick,

Finally new post live on your blog with high quality info.Two days ago I too started a micro niche site.Site will be monetized by adsense & good thing is my keyword had 8100 search volume with a Kc score -16 as per Keyword Revealer.In total Iam targeting 20 keywords,all of these keywords had kc score under 30 as per Keyword Revealer.I will follow the above strategy to rank this site.And do you use that social signals gig to every post of your site (or) for homepage ?

Regards,
Mahesh Goud

And also how do you create images which is used here & affiliate site.Those images are really looking awesome.Can you guide me how to do that ?

I use Fireworks 4 for image editing. I simply use the Lasso tool to crop images and move them around the canvas, build up layers. Fireworks 4 is very old, you would be able to get it very cheap now I would think. You can use wikimedia.org for images, some are free to share, adapt and distribute, others you can use but will require attribution. You can Google search “free stock photos” and take a look at some sites for other images to use, check out pexels.com, they have free images for personal and commercial use, you can modify, copy and distribute the photos free. There are loads of other sites, take a look.

Awesome, what is the “cost per click” for your selected keywords, have you calculated their value? Sounds like you have some good keywords there if you can get a good return per visitor click.

I do use the social signals gig on every post. Let me know how it goes. If you need any help drop me an email anytime. Have fun ๐Ÿ™‚

Hai Nick,

My keywords CPC as per keyword planner is >3$ for most of the keywords.At the moment I was publishing 10 articles at a time & I will schedule remaining posts like one post in every two days.I will update the result of this site to you through email at end of this month.

Cheers,
Mahesh Goud

Search volume of all of these keywords had 8100 – 1200 search per month in US.

Looks good ๐Ÿ™‚

Keep me updated. At $3 cost per click on your highest search volume I would say each post will net you at least $100 per month. I don’t find Adsense the most profitable way to monetise a site. However it is an easy way to add an extra revenue stream to a site if you don’t mind losing traffic for sometimes ridiculously low amounts. I suppose it all comes down to how much work it is going to take to rank each keyword number one in Google search.

Which is the most profitable way to monetise a site Nick?

I like to use click bank, you can make a great income with the right products and keywords. Conversions will be very high if you pick a product with a highly optimised landing page, commissions are high too, many around 70 and 80%. You don’t even need a high search volume keyword to make decent money with Click Bank. Get on over to Keyword Revealer, find some super easy to rank long tail keywords, find a product on Click Bank that relates and rank and bank away. ๐Ÿ™‚

Finally! A new article to read! I was visiting your website every day just to see if there is something new.

You always give some good ideas. Thank you!

Thanks for coming back Mantas on a daily basis. I try to drop some new content at least once a month if I can. I have some great stuff to come, just need to find the time to write it. Keep coming back, slip me an email or a comment if you need any help. Have fun ranking and raking in the dough ๐Ÿ™‚

Nice case study, nick. It’s excited to see an expert shows how to rank and bank. I will keep following the tutorial to the end. But I have one question, why in this project you don’t use Web 2.0 backlinks, free backlinks, or 301 elevator that you covered before? Why simply buying pbn gigs from fiverr? Are their effectiveness the same? Anyway, love to see your new tutorial ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks Rio. I don’t have enough time to use the expired web 2 backlinks, free backlinks and the 301 elivator on this project. It’s a small income for me at just $100 a month, I have bigger things on the go that needs my time. I could use them to rank this site, they would work.

I am using the fiverr PBN gigs because they are quick and easy, just pay the guy and he puts the content on the PBN for me. All I have to do is index those backlinks slowly when the order is complete.

The sites ranking high for these selected keywords do not have any authority, even these low fiverr PBN links will rank my site. It’s all about how you use them, having the right anchor text and indexing them slowly.

Pick the right keywords and these cheap backlinks can rank you number one in Google search. If you don’t have the money for these links, if you are just starting out, then the free web 2 backlinks will rank a site like this.

I see. So is this a churn and burn method or a long term method?

I set up a site using this backlink strategy in December 2015 and it is still ranking no. 1 for my selected keywords dropping me $170 every month in Amazon commissions. I don’t consider it to be a churn and burn method, I am not blasting thousands of PBN backlinks at the site, which will most definitely hurt your rankings in the long term. This is why you need easy to rank keywords, so that you do not need a huge amount of PBN backlinks to rank no. 1. When you hit the top spot you gain backlinks naturally and the PBN get filtered down, mixed up with real backlinks, you end up with a decent backlink profile. I am not going to tell you that this is 100% safe, because it is not, you only ever use PBN backlinks at your own risk. It all comes down to how you use them, build them wisely and you will be okay in the long term. If you just build enough to hit the top spot you are going to be good to rank for as long as you want to. When you hit the top stop do not use them again, you can switch to expired web 2s if you need to.

In fact I have a site that I purchased in 2012 that is still ranking today that I have used PBN backlinks on like these. Not the ones featured in the gig in the post, but still, it certainly comes down to how you use them in my opinion.

Thanks for this detailed info, I assume you are the one selling this Pbn links, I have bought pbn links in the past and they are all not worth talking about why because my links gets taking down by seller from the homepage after 7 days. And we all no that pbn links that aren’t seating on the homepage of the Pbn blog with PA of 27 as you said, is as good as fresh blogspot, more even worse than blogspot which has a higher DA. So what do you assure about this? Cause many will start rushing to buy this PBN links with ignorance, and I wish to ask if Amazon affiliate account is only open to US citizens or worldwide? Do we need a website at first to apply and get accepted by Amazon? I read a lot of things about amazon banning accounts easily, due to some terms of service and also violations of rules, can you tell us what Amazon hates and what makes them ban fast? Thanks once again I will appreciate if you take some time to go through and answer me serially. Thanks again.

I don’t sell any PBN backlinks at all. I do not sell anything on Fiverr, I don’t need to. Many PBN links on Fiverr are not worth it, you are right there. The gig I suggest is great, the backlinks are not from the blog homepage, however most of them index in Google. These backlinks will work at ranking easy keywords, it’s all about how you use them. Make sure you mix up your anchor text and get them indexed slowly and you are onto a winner. The PBN links I suggest will work on the right keywords ๐Ÿ™‚ You do not need to be a US citizen to have an Amazon.com affiliate account, you can live anywhere. I have a UK and USA amazon affiliate account. Just make sure that you have an Amazon affiliate disclosure on your site to avoid getting banned, also do not put a product price on your site, just have a button on there that says “best price” or “see price”.

Great post, look forward to the earnings report.

Thank’s Paul. The site will start to rank by the end of the month (September). My selected keywords will sit somewhere on Google search page 2. I will push for page one in October and by the end of November I will be in the top 3 spots. By Xmas I will be in the top spot for my selected keywords. That’s when the real income will kick in. Should see at least $100 a month all year round with this little project.
