Hi! I’m a newbie, I started an Amazon affiliate site October 2017. I found some easy keywords with KWfinder & the Keyword Golden Ratio method, I created this thread to make newbies -like me- avoid this mistake.
- I created the site, hired a copywriter for the articles.
- +3000 words per each article
- Easy keywords.
- Build some Original Web 2.0s and expired Ones. – No footprints. –
- Some manual commenting and a few EDU backlinks. – Not scholarships –
And that’s it, Within 2 – 3 months, I was publishing relevant content for my money articles.
Within 2 – 3 Months, I ranked for 3 keywords #1 and #0 “Snippet” That’s cool for a newbie like me!
Earnings was like this:
- October: 0
- November: $22
- December: $80
- January: $320
- February: $250 in the first 13 days.
So how I fucked things up?
In January, my earnings increased dramatically from $80 to $320 that was mind-blowing for me.
I started to look for some services in SEOClerk, Fiverr etc..
I wanted to rank other keywords with those services to give it a try and I was busy with a lot of stuff in the site.
I Bought some “Manual Commenting & Profile Links” services.
I bought around 150 comment on different 3 articles. and I think 50 Profile links.
I saw through Ahrefs, my backlinks increasing and referring domains for sure.
After somedays, my backlinks increasing in a wired way, something like 10K backlinks from 50 referring domain.
I knew that I just fucked things up. 2 Weeks later all my keywords, fall from #1 to #2 or #3 then some days more all of keywords fall to the second page, now many of them are N/A positions.
Clicks for my site went from 500 per day to 20 per day.
In short: Don’t risk your sites with these services, even if the comments are real, manual etc.. the other comments will have gambling, pharmacy links, Do you want your domain have a neighborhood like this?
