Do you know who those guys are that own those hosting review sites that ranking for “best host” etc? I think Pat Flynn is one of them. I am very curious as to how guys who are on the first page for those keywords got to that level. I looked at all the sites on the first page and these guys are so elite they aren’t even using Thrive or normal themes but it’s pretty much all custom. I am guessing these guys mastered “Amazon authority sites” or niche first before moving into the hosting niche? It seems to me to be one of the most competitive niches online with super high KD (some keywords have KD 70 etc in ahrefs) plus these hosting programs payout like crazy.
Consider the search volume for your chosen topic. Find out how many people are searching for that topic by running a web search for, say, "quick weight loss." The quotes will make your search specific, so that the only results will be sites that mention the exact phrase "quick weight loss." Your search engine should list the number of search results that turn up for your query. Try to find a topic that turns up fewer than 5,000 results.
The people that you refer too did not master amazon, they merely mastered the value they offer to visitors. If you are able to engage/connect with visitors, then you got a winner, some people merely have better skills then others, which may include offering high value content, coding/custom skills. Do you agree that these people brought something to the table? If they did not, then visitors would not continue to visit their sites, right? You can put up all the content in the world, you can get all the backlinks you want, but if you can not engage/connect with your visitors, then all is lost. These site most likely did not start off with custom sites; they started off just like everyone else, some rag/tag site. I ran across an affiliate site a few months ago, and the content on his site would just blow your mind, and let me tell you,this guy had affiliate links from all major affiliate networks, his site has so much authority that he is listed right up under amazon, and some actual product manufacturers; how did he do this? He brought solutions, and value to his visitors, he knew what they were looking for, and knows how to engage, and connect with them. If you can not figure out how to blow your visitors mind, then what do you really have to offer? His avg reviews were between 7k-10k words? how about you? 500-1000 words? at the end of the day, which site will google find more impressive, yours, or his, and i assure you, he had far more affiliate links on his site then you have on yours as you could not skip-a-paragraph without seeing affiliate links.
Then consider brand ambassador software. Brand ambassadors aren’t commission-driven like affiliates are. In a way, they have opposite motivations. Affiliates want to make as many sales as possible. Meanwhile, ambassadors share their genuine experiences to encourage people to try your brand, and care more about building relationships as a way to connect people with your brand.
Hello Niambi thank you so much for your comment on this post. I am so sorry that this has happened to you because of content that you read on my blog post. The content that I shared here, where link URLs are concerned is in relation to social media sites like Facebook and YouTube which is what I touched on when I gave suggestions as to how to promote your affiliate links. I did not speak about Pinterest in this post and would not provide advice on something that I am not versed on.
This is an older site (2003) with some heavy domain authority. That explains the crazy amount of content this site contains. It’s helpful though when you have 350+ employees. This isn’t a small enterprise, and they still utilize the Amazon Affiliate network to monetize their site. They use long and wordy articles to review products, maximizing the SEO of each page. The biggest difference from this site and others, is the amount of digital content these guys review. Their digital content ranges from Antivirus Software to Credit Card processing. This isn’t a typical Amazon product, but digital content can earn affiliate commissions through other sources than Amazon. Amazon is a great resource to monetize your site, but it’s definitely not the only way.
The Federal Trade Commission actually recently shut down the MOBE Program (My Online Business Empire) site because it was a total scam! It charged you money to buy into the exact same products, links & site they were promoting, but then wanted you to bring in new people to promote the exact same products, links & site… and it created a situation where no one was bringing real value, and money was just trickling up to the top.

Another example of an Amazon Affiliate Website that niched down to long boards. These are like skateboards but longer and meant to cruise, going longer distances than skateboards. It’s a relatively simple website that loads the user with tons of products from the homepage but highlights the lack of comments per review (usually 0 – 2 comments). The typical length of an article is 300-500 words so they are relying on their specific niche for traffic. Not bad for a “.net” domain as they are less common than their popular counterparts “.com”. It’s not the best example, but I’m going for a range.
Commission Junction is a long-running affiliate marketing company, and attracts some larger brand names for promoters to apply for. It’s at the bottom of my list for one reason only: They expect even the newest affiliate marketer to produce results in as little as six months, so it’s best to apply after you’ve already established your website and have some experience under your belt from other programs. That may make it sound like it’s not the best for beginners, and for those starting completely fresh in the affiliate marketing world, that’s very true. But, again, for those who have some experience with affiliate marketing (maybe you’ve been an affiliate partner with Amazon for a little while and want to move on), you can be very successful with Commission Junction.
Rather than having 20 groups pay separately for their hosting and have multiple support touch-points, WP Engine will consolidate them onto one server with a single support group. IT will be thrilled with the security and automatic updating. These packages can easily cost a few thousand per month (but still cheaper than 20 separate scattered accounts ). WP Engine pays a commission rate of 100% of first months billing. If the dedicated server configuration is $1500/mo – you get a $1,500 commission!
They have a long history of reducing commissions and writing content that competes with affiliates (and most people go directly to Amazon). I don’t recommend being an affiliate for any monopoly. You could very well end up getting trampled on, like most Amazon affiliates have. However, if you get lots of views, many affiliates are making “how to do something” YouTube videos and listing their equipment in the video description. A million views can make it worth it.
