Hi All, I've not been on here for a while and not done much with the web, but now looking to set up some business to run along side my full time job. I've thought about putting up a few niche WP sites but What's the current state of affiliate marketing and is it worth doing? 1. Am I better off setting up a .com and targeting Amazon com and US rather than UK? On the basis US is a larger market. 2. When I used to have affiliate sites I used to 301 redirect in order to aid in ranking. Never worked well but is it still necessary? I assume I will need to use ads for traffic so does it matter that my links are direct to amazon etc? Affiliate isnt my ideal but beggars cant be choosers. My creativity is lacking so coming up with alternative business ideas isnt working, which is frustrating when I can create sites for free and have money to invest.
