WordPress Themes and Plugins

You find thousands of WordPress themes on the internet. Some are free and some charge you money. You don't need a fancy looking theme to make a great commission from Amazon.

I have used various themes for different niches. Everyone has their own way of choosing a theme. The one I use the most is Thesis Theme (http://www.diythemes.com/), http://azonprofitstore.com, and http://proreviewtheme.com/.

Here are some other themes that you can use:

http://www.rockettheme.com/
http://www.headwaythemes.com
http://www.elegantthemes.com/
http://www.woothemes.com/
http://www.studiopress.com/
http://www.premiumpress.com
http://www.themeforest.net/

You can also use thousands of FREE Themes available online. Just make sure that you watch the FREE videos.

WordPress Plugins

Plugins allow you to add more features to your website by adding contact form, widgets, SEO tools, etc.

Site Structure

Your site structure should be as simple as possible for your visitors to navigate.

You should have your brand name categorized. For example, I would create several different categories for my car seats reviews. So, I would create category for brand Chico, Graco, Britax, and whatever major brands that I can find in Amazon directory. You would than add product review posts for each brand under appropriate category.

You also want to create a separate category for your informational articles and add info posts within that category.

Make sure you add about and contact page as well. It can be on top or bottom of the page.
