The New Amazon Affiliate Strategy

Amazon Affiliate Marketing Methods

Amazon Affiliate MarketingIn our previous post, we talked about how micro niche websites no longer work, and how Google no longer ranks these sites well.

Of course, that doesn’t mean it’s not possible to make money as an Amazon affiliate!

These days, the strategy is considerably different, and it does take a bit longer than it used to. Instead of building dozens, or even hundreds of tiny niche sites, you must focus on building one larger site, or perhaps a few.

The quality of your content must be much higher. Your articles must be much longer. You have to spend time actively promoting your sites instead of just getting a bunch of back-links and then counting on Google to send you traffic.

It’s really not much more work than the old method. Instead of writing 5 articles per site, spread out over 50 sites, you just write 50 articles per site, spread out over 5 sites. Instead of spending hours getting links to your sites, you spend that time on social media promoting your sites.

As you can see, the work is pretty much the same either way, but you have a lot fewer sites to keep track of.

Best of all, you only need to pay for a handful of domain renewals each year instead of hundreds!

The only real difference is that articles need to be a lot longer than they used to be. It’s generally thought that you should aim for a minimum of 1,000-1,500 words per article, and some SEO experts claim 3,000 is a better target.

Don’t let it freak you out. Most people can write at least 500 words per hour, and some kind write a couple thousand words in that time. It shouldn’t take you more than 2-3 hours to write a long article, or you could outsource each one for a few bucks.

Remember, though, these need to be QUALITY articles. It’s no longer possible to rank well with spun crap or articles written by non-native English speakers, because Google actually checks things like spelling and grammar. Articles don’t have to be perfect, but they do have to be relatively error free.

Of course, Google isn’t the be-all and end-all of traffic! These days, social media is actually a lot more important for the average website!

Niche selection may be different, but it’s still absolutely vital, so you’re going to want to read every word of tomorrow’s post! We’re going to talk about choosing a niche, and why it’s so much different than it used to be. Don’t miss it!
