Need advice from other affiliates

I really need some help with my website. I followed all the instructions I can find on this website but unfortunately I haven't got one sale and little traffic. I'm really determined and won't give up. All I need is a little help. If a successful affiliate marketer can help me start making money I will gladly share a bit of money earnings for helping me.

Here's my website: http://www.kindlereview2012.com

Please email me with your suggestions or any tips: kindlereview2012@gmail.com

Your site is relatively new (created just 3 weeks ago). You just need to keep building backlinks to increase traffic and sales.

I also suggest that you create high quality articles and check your articles for grammatical errors. Small errors like these would make your site look unprofessional. Your visitors will be less likely to trust your opinion and not buy your products.

All the best!

It takes time to start seeing results from affiliate sites. I see some people take as long as 6 months or more to see their first sales. You have a decent start. On top of what Michelle said, I would ask, who is your target customer? What would they be searching for? Create some valuable content that is helpful to people. Write articles for your site that would target people who are interested in the Kindle. everything on your site right now is nothing but sales pitch after sales pitch.

One of the biggest things you have to do in this business is build trust with potential customers, and if all you are doing is pitching products, they have no reason to trust you. Share your personal experiences, write articles about different books.

One of the biggest mistakes most new affiliates make is focusing on products rather than customers. Find your niche, find your customers, and create content to help those customers. Then, find products that fill their needs. focusing on a product just makes you look like a pushy salesman, and nobody really trusts them.

I don't know if you're trying to use SEO or not, but keep in mind that with the new Google changes, it will pretty much be impossible for you to rank for product name words unless you actually sell the product (not just promote as an affiliate).

Also, Google hates things like "add to cart" buttons if you aren't actually adding the product to a shopping cart on your website. Don't just use this as a way to get people to click on your Amazon link.

Looks like you just copied some customer reviews from Amazon.com too. This is a big no-no. Not only is this duplicate content (which is going to make it nearly impossible for you to outrank a huge site like Amazon), but there's probably some legal issues with copyright.

You can still do reviews as long as you provide tons of value. Some of your product articles seem a bit shallow. I would add as much as you possibly can. If you are just copying and pasting product descriptions or specs, then you really don't have a chance. Go into extreme detail on what you like about the Kindle, what you don't like about it, who the Kindle is right for, who shouldn't get it. Remember, the purpose is to inform the visitor, not just fill up space so that you can trick Google into ranking you.

Basically, the most important thing from an SEO standpoint is that you stop trying to fool people into thinking that your site is actually selling Kindles. Google hates these sorts of sites and views them as "parasites." Make it a legit review site that offers insights and opinions. Show Kindle "hacks," tips, tricks, etc. that will make people actually want to visit your site and give Google a reason to rank you.

Hope this helps.

I agree with what everyone else has said about your website so far and I can assure you that it would do your site well if you are to follow their suggestions. One thing you can definitely improve on are the articles, the actual reviews. I suggest you write your own reviews and share your own opinion on the Kindle line of products. You can also do book reviews of eBooks you've read using the Kindle. Write reviews on Kindle accessories as well as articles on how to take care of your Kindle.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!
