30 thoughts on “Amazon Affiliate Case Study: $25,000 in 10 months with $500”

  1. What I liked: Last part of the link building, i.e. how-to guides attracting links. True, error, guides, uses kind of articles attract links.

    What I didn’t like: Content publishing in an irregular manner hurts your site. Not really.

    You should have mentioned where you got the buyer. That could have made the blogpost – “from starting to selling amazon aff site”.

    Overall, a good case study can be treated as 1 stop -amazon affiliate site guide.

    • Thanks a lot Swaraj for your comment! I really appreciate it!

      I’m glad you liked the Link Building part related to How-to guides. If done right, it can bring natural links on a regular basis.

      For the content part, it’s good that you haven’t faced any issue with it! However, from my experience, I’ve always felt that on sites where I have irregular content posting schedule, they tend to grow slow or traffic starts to fall, compared to sites with regular posting schedule. Maybe this requires more testing from my end!

      For the selling part, I’ll come with another guide on it, explaining about all the process. Because, there are plenty of moving parts there, and a short section here won’t do justice.

      Though thanks once again for reading the entire article!

  2. I must say you done a pretty good job, but how about adding the site selling process in this case study?

    Like how you decided the value of the site, where you listed it or from where you got the buyer etc.

    Other than that the whole case study is pretty well written, organized and filled with the information that one needs to start an amazon affiliate site from scratch.

    • Thanks a lot for your comment bro!

      About the selling part, I will list it in another article, because it deserves a detailed guide of its own. A short section in the case study won’t do justice.

      Though, thanks for mentioning specific points, I’ll keep them in mind and address in the upcoming article!

  3. Thank you so much for the valuable information sir. Just I need to know that if I choose the very basic Cloudways plan which costs $10/month, how many sites can I host into that plan? How much traffic it can bear monthly? Please clear these confusions. And again, thank you for the case study.

    • Hey Sarmad, first of all, thank you for leaving a comment on this case study!

      Secondly, in theory, you can add innumerable websites on the Cloudways $10/month plan itself. There’s no cap on it from Cloudways.

      But, most of it depends on the size of the website and how much traffic each website is raking in on the $10/month plan.

      I personally keep 3 websites on a $10/month server. Whereas, you can keep around 5 sites without any issues.

      Having said that, it also depends on the load. Thus, if you’ve hosted multiple websites, and you notice some of your websites slowing down. You can add certain sites to another server.

      Hope that answers your question!

  4. I was curious that, Why did you replaced the users website into your home page in comment section, maybe to show Google that users are interacting with your website.

    I had never seen this kind of strategy🙌

    My main question is question is what kind of content strategies are you using for featured snippets.

    • Hey Sreekanth, thanks for leaving a comment on this case study!

      However, I’m not sure I fully understand what you’re trying to say in the first part. Could you please reiterate it?

      For the featured snippets, I don’t actively work on it because Google themselves are working on improving featured snippets to serve the users better.

      Thus, stick to your natural writing style, and depending on user’s query, if it serves their purpose. Google will have no issues listing your article in the featured snippets!

  5. Well, this is really a wonderful and in-depth Amazon affiliate website case study. Since many people make mistakes with their websites, you have made a detailed post to find where one is lacking. ❤

    Loved the images of this post as they describe the point in a visual manner.

    Congratulations to you for generating whopping $19,000 by selling your website. All the best for future projects.

    Will wait for more case studies like this so we can learn and earn too 😉


    • Hey Anshul, thanks for a lot for leaving a comment on this case study, and a kind one too!

      I appreciate your kind words and thanks a lot for highlighting about the blog graphics.

      It definitely took a lot of time to create those images, but I’m really proud how it has turned!

      Currently, I’m working on more projects, and you can expect more case studies on this website too!

  6. Such an amazing guide. Words aren’t enough to describe this blog post. Also the writting skills are astonishing.

  7. Hi Abhishek, thanks a lot for sharing such a case study. BTW What chair does Pewdiepie use? – Does this keyword fall under buyer intent keyword or informational keyword?

    • Hey Surya, first of all thanks for leaving a comment!

      Secondly, for the keyword you mentioned about. I personally call them as hybrid keywords.

      Because, on the surface they may look like keywords with informational intent. But, they can also lead to sales as well!

  8. Long back, I read your article at Ankit Singla’s blog. And now this case study is just amazing.

    Waiting for your keyword research article. <3

  9. Great case study mate. I really enjoyed it.

    What are you working on right now? Any plans to make another CS? How many money sites have you?

    Eager to read more of you in the future.

    To your success.


  10. Good information and some useful links to resources, specially the Pinterest tips link to Alex’s site. Keep up the good work!

  11. Hi Abhishek,

    I read your whole post and I’ll like to add my two cents; 1) Content is everything. And it’s about solving the intent, providing what the user is looking for. 2) Longer the content doesn’t necessarily mean higher the rankings.

    Anyway, a nice case study. Wish you all the best for the future.

    • Hey Neil, first of all, thank you for reading the entire article and leaving a comment. It means a lot to me!

      Yes, I understand, intent is everything, and longer content doesn’t really mean useful content in terms of user satisfaction.

      However, from my observation, I’ve seen newer sites rank #1 mostly due to high word count. But, that’s also temporary and one shouldn’t fall for it too!
