site for applying affiliate program in the beauty niche
« on: November 05, 2013, 10:19:49 AM »
Hi, everybody

I am now starting my new niche in the beauty affiliate programs. I have applied to beauty.com (rejected) and drugstore.com(rejected), I have only applied to these 2 so far, and feel needing some help.
My site is www.yueing.com and I need feedback from everyone to improve it and get accepted.

I have 20+ articles to post and will do that gradually. Thx for any feedback in advance.

I was going to suggest the affiliate program, Market Health, but it looks like you already are using them. Should be no problem getting accepted there.

As for your site, it looks nice. What I would suggest, the sidebar should be more than just ads. Sidebar should include navigation so your visitors can find your content, which will help with SEO as well. Should have a category list, recent posts, tags, ect. Course it's your site. Just looks a little too much like a banner farm, which might turn off your visitors.

Also, it wouldn't hurt to format the posts, right now it's kind of a bunch of boring text, not something most people will enjoy reading.

There are also two sets of social icons, which might be confusing and of course not necessary. One if probably from your theme, and you should be able to turn it off.

Of course these are just my opinions. :)

1 you dont have any keywords associated with the blog.  I checked your source code.
2 some programs dont like seeing monetized sites.
3 you dont have a keyword related domain name.
4 according to alexa Daily Pageviews per Visitor 1.50

You have a Privacy Policy but I think you also need a 'Terms and Conditions' and/or a 'Terms of Service' page.

It looks like you've got a fairly good start with your site. However, as you've mentioned, you were rejected by a couple of sites.  This could be for any number of reasons, and the others who've already posted have given some really ideas of where to start.

I'll add ...

did either Beauty.com or Drugstore.com indicate why they rejected your site? Sometimes, if the site is not very old (I see yours is 2013) that may be a drawback for acceptance.

Also, while it may not be a basis for rejection, I suggest that you change the graphics at the bottom of the posts (for "other posts you might like"--they are almost all the same--in other words, include the graphic that goes with the actual article instead.

And, I would add a "sign up" box for your "freebie/report" at the top right in place of an ad! This will enable you to collect email addresses so you can continue to be in touch with your readers/buyers.

Good luck.

Karen

You did a good job on your website, but one addition I see it could use is the "terms", but you're on the right path and coming here for feedback was a great choice you made.
