It’s been around 3 months since I started WP Contempo. So far a lot of my themes have been getting great download numbers, I had a post with at least 15 diggs, and I’ve got a PR3 home page and at least 3 PR5 inner pages. Not bad for 3 months, but one thing I really want to improve is my Feedburner count. That’s why I’ve decided to start a new series on the exact steps involved in setting up an EPN affiliate blog and promoting it. I’m hoping by doing this, I will be able to improve my subscriber count, so if you haven’t already subscribed to my feed, please do so!
I make a good portion of my affiliate income from Ebay Partner Network, and I really enjoy digging for untapped niches and designing great looking sites that generate a lot of clicks from my traffic. Now, I’m going to give you a complete start to finish tutorial showing every step you need to take to research a niche, map out and develop a site, promote the site, and start making cash!
I am going to create a new site to use as an example througout the process, so you will be able to witness the transformation from an idea to a profitible ebay affiliate site in a real life scenario.
The first phase will be laying out the tools you will need to have to get started, finding a great niche, performing keyword research the right way, and choosing your domain name.
The second phase will take you through the set up of the site – from the minute you register your domain until the time the site goes live. I’ll show you how to set your domain up with hosting, install wordpress using fantastico, show you which plugins you need and tell you where to get them, and show you how to configure and customize the free WP Commerce Steel EPN theme.
Last, in the third and final phase I will show you how to optimize your site for best SEO results, add content in several different ways that will take very little time and keep traffic coming to your site, and of course, I’ll share some link building techniques that work well for getting this type of site ranked.
I’m really excited to get started, and if you’re just getting started trying to make money online blogging, this is a perfect tutorial for you.
