If you answered YES…..then stick around, this article is for you.

How I build an Amazon Affiliate site that makes me money weekly
Using SEO and LongTail keywords I have built a niche website that makes money almost daily. Right now its small earnings but every month and every article that I write it increases the amount of commissions I am getting from Amazon.
How does this work you ask?
Well, I first setup a WordPress site on a domain that I had purchased……Greg’s course teaches you how to do this…(Click here to Check out his free SEO Crash Course)
Once had the WordPress setup on the domain. I then started looking at long tail keywords using google.
In fact if you just google a term you will see a ton of suggested searches at the bottom of the first page of google. I built one website entirely around this.
You can also use tools do find keywords. (I will add some suggestions later).
I then would build an ENTIRE article around that specific Keyword.
Here are some examples of long tail keywords:
- How to use “product”
- Does this “product” work
- Where to buy “product”
- Will “product” work with “xproduct”
Here are some real examples of long tail keywords I used for this site (http://tublissreview.com/)
- Tubliss review 2018
- Tubliss vs Tubes
- Tubliss with Maxxis Maxcross
- Tubliss Problems
- Tubliss on the road
- Does Tubliss work
- Best tires for Tubliss System Gen 2
You can really just think of what people would be searching for in a specific niche you are targeting. You don’t need or want to compete with the major keywords because you probably don’t have the pocket book to pay for it.
Small targeted searches is what you are after. These are the people that are looking for a specific topic or issue to look into before they purchase the product.
In fact some SEO guru’s put the actual serial number as the main title of the article.
Alright so now you are probably wondering if Amazon Affiliate program is worth it or not?

Overall Conclusion of being an Amazon Affiliate
Is it worth it YES…..
It allows you to make money everyday while you sleep…..Like I mentioned there are tons of different ways to create Traffic…..Videos and SEO are my favorite.
Pick a niche that you love and know a ton about.
That way you will enjoy writing article after article until you can afford to pay someone else to write them for you (Check out iWriter).
So I wanted to give everyone an update on my Journey as an Amazon Affiliate.
Here is a picture of June’s Commission report. While its only $11.54 in commissions I am still super pumped WHY?
Most people NEVER make a dollar online and spend much more trying to do so……I wanted to prove to you and myself that you can make money online without spending a fortune.
The best part about the graph below is its scale able
What does that mean. It means the more effort I put into building this micro niche website the more money I will make!
Here is My action plan for www.tublissreview.com
