Super Affiliate Machine Review
Product: Super Affiliate Machine (SAM)
Price: $147 & $197
Is Super Affiliate Machine a scam?
If you have reviewed a couple of products in your life, then you will notice that almost everyone of them will have their good and bad sides. The same also goes with this product because it does have some good and bad aspects to it.
The first thing that you will realize about the sales page is the amount of earnings screenshots. It is very hard to tell whether they are 100% true because most of the screenshots that you get from these kinds of products are false so I will give this product the benefit of the doubt.
Personally I think that this product might help you a little bit because there are a couple of things that I found useful but I fear that it will also destroy your foundation when it comes to SEO (Search Engine Optimization).
I do not think that it is a scam, but if you do not have a strong foundation when it comes to SEO, then I would not recommend Super Affiliate Machine (SAM) to you.
What is included inside SAM?
SAM is a software that automates the whole process of building niche websites. The work “automate” suddenly popped up red flags because there is no automation in building niche websites. They take work and time to build and only once they are build to the level where you want them then you can automate your income.
I think that it is going to be easier to explain this product in different steps because that way it will be easier for you to understand.
1. Doing keyword research
Most internet marketers start with keyword research before they go into a niche. It is very hard to determine the volume of the niche and the competitiveness of it just by looking at keywords because a niche is much more than just a couple of keywords.
I usually measure the size of my niche by the amount of products that I can find within it because the majority of my articles will be product reviews.
The reason why SAM introduces keyword research so early in the process is because they recommend that you buy a keyword related domain name. This will allow your website to rank higher for that specific keyword because it is located in the name or web address of your site.
Google does not put as much emphasis on keyword rich domains as they used to and this strategy also limits the size of your website because it is now limited to the name of your domain. If you can find a high volume keyword that is worth it, then maybe you can give it a try.
2. Buying a domain name
This can be done from your SAM dashboard. I already mentioned in the first step that you will be advised to buy a keyword rich domain name.
3. Creating your website
Once you registered your domain name and hosting, you will then be able to create your website from the dashboard. WordPress (which is a content management system) will already be installed and some very important plugins that are good for SEO.
4. Creating content
This is the part where I got a little bit disappointed in the product because it really started off good. Here SAM will create the content for you. You might think that this is a brilliant idea because now you do not need to write your own articles, but this does not work.
I do not know where this software gets the content from, but I have a good feeling that it comes from content spinners which is a software that uses existing content and then changes it automatically.
Google hates this and I do not believe that you will rank for any of the spinned articles. You are better off by creating your own articles.
5. Tiered Link building
We all know that if another website owner links to your website that you will rank better in the search engines. The problem is that Google is getting better at spotting unnatural backlinks. Tiered link building is where you build backlinks to existing backlinks to let more juice flow to your articles.
Below is a video that explains more on tiered link building:
The is a more Grey/Blackhat link building practice and even though it might work now, there is no guarantee that it will work in the near future because Google is very smart at spotting these links.
6. Social shock
This course is designed to teach you how to get backlinks from social media. My problem with this approach is that most social media websites do not give “do-follow” backlinks and instead gives “no-follow” links.
No-follow links are links that points to your website from another websites, but the only problem is that it does not send any ranking “juice” to your website which makes this practice worthless.
Should you buy this product?
Yes and no. The reason why I say this is because there is one group that might benefit from it and another that should rather stay away from it. If you are new to internet marketing, SEO and link building, then I would not recommend this course to you.
This course will teach you things that you should NOT do when it comes to link building and I would avoid their training like the plague because it will destroy your foundation on linkbuilding and SEO.
However if you already have a strong foundation on SEO and linkbuilding where you already know how to do it safely without getting your website penalized, then you might learn a thing or 2.

Building a long term online business
I must admit that I was also guilty of doing bad link building in the past because who does not want their websites to rank faster? The biggest problem with this approach is that you sit with the risk of getting your website penalized in the future.
When this happen you will lose most of your rankings and then all the work that you have put into your website will be for nothing.
What if you could build a website without worrying if you will get a Google slap in the future. Trust me it is not a great feeling if you have to go to bed at night worrying whether it will happen tomorrow.
I have strongly shifted my online business to the approach where I do not need to build that many links in order rank. With this method it takes time before you start to see results, but you never have to worry about getting debunked by the big G.
