    Hi
    SEMrush
    Just wondering whether how much traffic people get who are a amazon affilaite and have build a website just for the purpose for being a amazon affilaite. Do you have adsense ads on there as well? Maybe some people who got a website like this would like to share there experiences

    Cheers

    About 500 measly pageviews a day! Back in late 2003 it was as high as 9,000 pageviews a day, with way less AWS sites! Bah! Competition!!

    er, um, er.... Google says 5,800 now though when I search by domain, it's way more. I used to have over 1,000,000 URLs indexed. When I had the 9,000 pageview days I didn't even have half of that indexed.

    i'm still getting 1-2000 uniques per day on some of my sites.

    in May-June i had 2 sites doing 7-12K UNIQUE visitors per day. but it less competition i think and more that google hates affiliates.

    you gotta make the content different. very hard with an amazon store.

    Being an Amazon affiliate doesn't generate links...

    Would u mind sharing a bit more inside info??
    **
    - "change the content" does that mean add different content then the affiliate store only or same content but in a different order to avoid the duplicate filter?
    - did you rewrite your urls?
    - are you using amazon's webservice?
    - what kind of script do you use?

    One last thing I would like to ask , would u mind posting a example url? If you don't like to display it here on the forum then that's fine with me . A PM would be great as well.

    Thanks

    I only have a few "complete" aws stores and they are all less than a year old. They are constantly indexed and deindexed becuase of all the duplicate content. I use they more as experiments than I do as income generators. I've been working on mixing things up a bit within the stores but so far results have been mixed.

    Most of my Amazon related income comes from sites I have created that incorporate Amazon affiliate links. The sites have real, original & unique content but serve as nothing more than a place for visitors to arrive, click on a link, then head over to Amazon and make their purchases.

    While an AWS store can generate a boatload of content, it's all duplicate. It's not getting easier either...I'd be willing to bet that hundreds (thousands?) of new AWS stores pop up every day.

    My advice, for what it's worth...you'll make more $ by building a 50 - 75 page site around a niche of Amazon products and focussing your efforts on that niche vs building a store with Amazon's complete product line and trying to generate revenue from it. Find a niche that works, get it going, then repeat. yea it's more work but long term it'll pay off.

    If you're dead set on owning an aws store, see if you can find one for sale that's been around for awhile...even then with an aws store it's a always a role of the dice. Don't pay too much for it. Indexed and producing today...gone tomorrow. When that happens it'll look kind of like this:
