    Hi fellow hubbers,

    I have just finished creating a new site which will have affiliate sales in its third level pages to try and use a robots text to limit viewing of affiliate links by robots of the third level pages.The first two level categories will carry the SEO.

    The question I have, is because I have 40000 potential pages for the products to ensure the site works smoothly, is there any shopping cart out there that allows plug in of affilate links for products.

    I looked at two that only allow your own products or the shipping, products etc to be handled by yourself.I want to use amazon.

    Any advice to get around this would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance Dale

    Fresh Store Builder is made for amazon affiliate links. PhpZon can be tweaked in store layout format and you can use it on affiliate sites.

        No idea. I'm just using that script since last week. I thought about writing tutorial on FSB but these type of hubs rarely convert for me so dropped the idea.


        FSB allows you to add your own reviews/pages/social media stuff/paypal and other meta information which is not possible with Astore. FSB is also going to add geo-targeting(uk/ca) feature soon.


        FSB has it's own CMS and allows you to modify some SEO parameters, so answer is yes. Only one problem i see with FSB is that unless you add more content to your site it'll be treated as thin-affiliate site.

    Hmmm, fresh store builder for Amazon looks interesting. But how is it any different than Astore?

    The end result for both is that you have to go to Amazon to finish the checkout. So, the end result is the customer knows they really simply bought something from Amazon.

    Does FSB have more SEO than Astore? I would assume so since Astore only has one line of code, which is why I hate it for SEO.

    I built some niche Amazon pages using my own images and text and got to the first page on Google for them. But that way takes a long time. hmm

      FSB  looks quite interesting on the surface, costs $97 fully refundable up to 30 days. I'm not sure about where it says optimised for search engine results, you will dominate the search engines? Can you bank on that after the past week??

      You also have to host it yourself, so there is an ongoing cost.

        "I'm not sure about where it says optimised for search engine results, you will dominate the search engines?"

        That is marketing talk, nobody can say where your site or page will rank. It all depends on what you do with it, what domain it's on and a dozen other things. smile

    If your site wasnt already created, I find that shopperpress fits your explained needs perfectly. But it is a shoppingcart integrated wordpress theme not just a shopping cart plugin/code, you could easily switch themes and reconfigure but that may not be the most elegant solution for a pre-designed and configured site.

    Every theme nowadays is going to say seo optimized - usually it just means it has pretty links and custom fields for page by page meta data. Which isnt a misrepresentation. But is pretty much the standard on any premium theme so shouldnt be a surprise to any online professional.

      Can you make that work with Amazon?

    Thanks for the great suggestions everyone.

    @ skyfire - FSB Looks great, I will need to see how customizable the appearance is though to match the site.
    PhpZon seems to be to much like a blog for the purpose.

    @Bill Manning and Bryan Slater - Good points you guys mention.My application will already have the visitors on the site, but with 40000 product options, I am trying to limit the amount of page design for the products.If the shopping cart allows affiliate links, pictures and reveiws, it should work well from the website as the directory pages with SEO. I find the options for A-Store appearance very limiting and spoils the client experience somewhat.

    @sunforged - The host company I use has a web builder that supports .php page names so it may not be as difficult to do. I also see that you can have up to 1000 carts from Shopperpress.The adsense and analytics supported function and up to 100 affiliate programs makes this look the best option so far.

    The templates look pretty good too.

    @Ryan - It looks pretty good for E-bay and Amazon.

    Thanks for the help and great advice guys and gals.
