How to become an affiliate

Last Update: March 20, 2015

Hello fellow W/A's I'm here today looking at my site and pulling my hair out as I have been denied my affiliate with amazon here is what they said

"Thank you for applying for the Associate program. Upon review, we are unable to accept your application. A part of our criteria is that your site has to be established with enough unique content. We rejected your application due to one or more of the following reasons.

- Lack of content which is original to your site and beneficial to your visitors
- Pages that are mainly empty when advertisement content is removed"

I thought the way you put content on your site was buy posting affiliate links to products, so how do I fix this? Well that is what I am going through with amazon, but it doesn't end there I was also denied from google adsense.

This is what they have to say

Site does not comply with Google policies: We're unable to approve your AdSense application at this time because your site does not comply with the Google AdSense program policies or adhere to the Webmaster Quality guidelines. It's our goal to provide our advertisers sites that offer rich and meaningful content, receive organic traffic, and allow us to serve well-targeted ads to users. We believe that currently your site does not fulfill this criteria.

I have been building this site for a month now I am only at the beginning of course 4 and thought I had followed all the steps up to now but I obviously missed something along the way, I have many hours invested in this short time as I am laid off at the moment but will be returning to work in a week and had hopes of having my site at least running some what. I'm not sure what to do now can anyone look at my site and tell me whats wrong I have added pictures to my pages thinking maybe that's what I was missing not sure though. I'm lost and and a bit upset with my self for not understanding this new adventure. But I'm not giving up i am going to figure this out what ever it takes. So if you wonderful folks could take the time from your busy day to look at my site and leave me some kinda idea what to do would be most helpful thank you and best wishes to you all.

Strap is right bobpjabi. Most of what you have now is advertisement and no content. Content consist of written pages/post , to include comments on any of those. Also, if amazon has not approved you, how are you advertising their products? What links are in the ads? I like your site, but start writing man......Tell a few good niche stories about men's need for gadgets. Find you key words. BAM! Get-er-done!

You may want to build out a lot more content on your site. This could be quality reviews on all of the products that you have pictures of. It could be posts on categories of gadgets etc. Keep building it out and then re-apply to both of these programs. They will then probably look at your application in a different light.

Thank you for the quick response I'm not that good at writing things up but will continue to work on this

That is the way to get rankings - write quality content and plenty of it. You will soon get the hang of it the more you do it. In the meantime, it is a grind which has to be done - I wish you well
