A question about Amazon Affiliate

Discussion in 'Amazon' started by hope2life, Mar 6, 2013.

    You guys are promoting amazon products. There are many products like mobile phones, laptops, computers, toys, etc to promote. But since the companies are launching new products every now and than, products we put today on website will ultimately get older after 2-3 years and no one would buy or query about them in google. So don't you think so content added would no longer be useful in near future? Does anyone still making money in amazon affiliate from websites which are even 4-5 years old? I am eager to know. I think we should do something which lasts forever.

    You do realize you are allowed to update your website, right?

    Updating the website means wasting time in updating and not adding new content.

    All the products descriptions will need to be updated which is as difficult as adding new content.

    Yeah, don't update your websites. Keep advertising products that are out of date and no longer purchased. Sounds like a winning plan.

    Just use some common sense. This is not rocket science.

    Then you should do something other than affiliate programs where content lasts forever and traffic will keep coming for years to come. Putting ads are ok because they also make money as much as affiliate programs like amazon

    I am not retrieving content from amazon directly using plugins as in that case my site will suffer from duplicate content issue.

    it is not necesary to add them automaticaly, you can publish them by yourself you only use the custom fields of plugin. you add the asin number of post and it get's informations of the product.

    I think 2-3 years of earning from a particular affiliate product is good enough. Even if the product no longer exists you should not ponder over it. Delete that post if you can't update it, which is not a good idea though( I would prefer to update it as browntwn said above).
    Buddy, you would have so many good posts within that spam of time why are you even thinking about that post of yours?

    You might want to look at some good Amazon plugins that will retrieve product posts and reviews on a scheduled basis. There are some good ones out there. Good Luck

    You can always edit your post after you get it from Amazon with just a sentence and then it is unique to your site. Download the description as a draft, edit it, and then post it live. Hope that helps

    Depending on the niche, your work can keep earning you money for years to come. I would recommend avoiding short lifespan niches e.g. latest diet fads, certain electronics

    Make sure whatever method you use to create your site/store updates your products with the latest information, latest price, links etc. That way you can "set and forget" without having to keep going back to update.
