50 amazon sites challenge progress report #3

Want to learn how to make money with amazon? Follow my updates on the 50 amazon niche sites challenge resource page.



Since the last update, things have been moving along quite nicely. First, the progress!
  • I have added two more amazon sites, making the total to 8. 42 more to go!
  • I got my FIRST sale from the first batch of newly created sites (site 4). These domains were registered 2 weeks ago with no content and backlinks. Now, it is making sales. Who says you can't make money with new sites?
  • I have spotted another 2 niches. Domains have been purchased but the sites are not built yet so I didn't put them here in the table below.
  • Good news is 7 out of the 8 sites have started to receive search engine traffic. That is quite nice given that most sites are less than 2 to 1 week ago. Anyway, you can check out the numbers below. 
Note: The traffic stats are for the month of Dec only while the cost and earnings are accumulated across months.

How many backlinks to rank a niche site
I will have a separate post on this topic but I want to note here that I have been experimenting wtih different backlink services to see what is the minimal to start getting search engine traffic. I don't care which keyword I am ranking for. As long as the backlinks can give the site enough PR to start drawing search engine traffic, I am good.

This is why you see different cost of building the sites above. This is mainly due to the different backlink services I am trying. Some are more expensive than others hence the price differentiation.

Once I have more data, I will create a post on the different backlinking services you can consider for your amazon sites.

Can you tell me how do you track sales from amazon. Looks like we need to make tracking id. but i don't know how.

Also, i crossed $50 from amazon this month. I am hoping best amazon month. This is true potential.
