Roll Your Own Datafeed Site

Back in early November, Nickycakes did a post about using a cool wordpress plugin to generate product sites using datafeeds from networks like Shareasale, Linkshare, and Commission Junction.

Well, the guy who made the plugin in that post has since sold it, and the pricing has been changed around some other stuff, so who knows if it’s reliable anymore.

Luckily, it’s not that hard to whip up your own datafeed site with basic knowledge of PHP/Mysql, and an account on an affiliate network that offers datafeeds.  But where to get started?

Well, one of the runners up for affiliate of the year, who is also one of the hosts of the Both Sides of the Tracks Podcast that Nickycakes was recently on, Eric Nagel, has put together a step-by-step tutorial on doing just that.

Here‘s the first post in the series, which you can follow all the way to the end through his blog.  If you’re struggling with ppc and need a more robust, long-lasting alternative, then SEO driven revshare sites based on datafeeds might be what you’re looking for.  They definitely take time, but are not hard to throw together at all, and if you outsource the SEO work, you could probably make a solid business out of it.

Keep it real.
