A short review or description of the products on the category page.

Not very impartial but very profitable.

There are two ways to develop single market affiliate review sites;
1/ Authority Review Site - With an authority review site you are the
reviewer, you may already be an authority on a subject, & know the pro's & cons of various products &
services within that subject. If that is the case then an authority single market review site is the perfect
Beware If you choose yourself as the single source of
information (No Visitor Comments) you need a way of adding content, I won't go too far into SEO here but the search
engines want new content, if your site is stagnant it will spike in the search engines when it is new & then
slowly fall to obscurity.
A great way of keeping the search engines on your side is to write & post articles about the
subject you are reviewing. You could develop your own site from the ground up but I would strongly recommend..
Review Foundry "Affiliate Review Site Software"
This Software gives you all the features you will need to design, develop, market & Seo
your own Authority site on any subject you choose. You can even have a Community Review Blog backend!
As a bonus you also get a very detailed Ebook explaining Affiliate Review Site Marketing in much
greater detail than I am here.
If you are considering your own authority review website this is a great place to start.
2/ Community Review Site - With a community review site the majority of your
content is contributed by your visitors, you create the original reviews with your affiliate links as the redirects
& your visitors comment on their experiences with those services.
These sites can be quite hard to get going because you need visitors to generate content & you
need content to get the search engines to send you visitors. - A little bit of a catch 22, I would suggest you
create a # of free email accounts & write a comment or two a day under different pseudonyms until the search
engines catch on.
One way of doing this is with an Wordpress
Review Plugin / Template, Blogs have many benefits in comparison to regular sites, least of which
is when a comment is made the search engines are automatically pinged, which brings their spiders rushing over to
see what is going on.
This quickly gets your site indexed & depending on your content ranked for your
I left this for last because it is by far the hardest to get off the ground. If you
can get a Multi Market affiliate review site going the potential is practically unlimited just
take a look at Cnet.com. I would strongly recommend you limit your ambitions to a specific field, this way
you will get a more targeted audience. "Software Reviews" "Photography Reviews" "Supplement Reviews" etc.
Although these are field specific they are such large fields you can subdivide into multiple categories. If you
build your website using sub-domains your main domain could be www."Something"ReviewSite.com & your sub
domains would be www.Software."Something"ReviewSite.com etc. You can use your main domain to list your various
sub domains & add on new sub domains as you develop them.
This is a lot of work & not recommended for newbie's, however if you are determined to develop
a Multi Market Affiliate Review Site I would recommend starting with 5 Star Software.
