Anyway, the point of this post is to show you guys that despite my amazon sites being penalised, I still manage to squeeze out nearly USD100 on them despite not touching them for several months. This strengthens my belief that the online model still works out and any investment you made is still going to make you money.
Let me share some of my stats with you:
For the Amazon challenge, I invested a total of USD804. Out of that, 50% goes into buying 40 domain names while the rest of the USD400 goes into buying content and backlinks. Currently, I have earned about USD582, leaving me with about USD220 to go before breaking even for my investments. After that, it is all pure profits.
The best thing is that out of the 40 domains I bought, only about 18 have been built, even though all will be paid for within 2-3 months. I have about 22 domains which I have not done any work which means they have not been penalised which means I can still build them out properly in the future.
So, even though it might not be big money, it still shows that investing in making money online still works, despite all the setbacks.
Below is a screenshot showing my amazon sites.

My plan going forward is to purchase another set of domains that relates to the best sellers according to the table above. This time around, how I build these sites will be slightly different:
- Content: Mixed up the content. 70% will be news or list type of content that can potentially be shared while 30% will be product reviews
- Links: No more ordering of fiverr backlink services. Just maybe 2-3 links from my own network of sites. Only 1 will contain anchor text.
