Hi,
One of my friends have started a website and that's reselling one of the reputed firm's services/products. Yes he has taken consent from the provider company. And started a website with 100% unique content.

Now my question is , do such websites perform well in terms of ranking in search engines like Google ?

I just want to know, is this good way to proceed with such programs ? Will this be a successful idea ?

Thanks in advance

Google "buy crystal ball", hit one of the adds, not the organic listings, the adds (because they sell more relevant crystal balls) and ask it on arrival ;)

sorry dude jk! But if its 100% unique content it shouldn't have a problem and be classed as an affiliate or scraper/duplicate site so will rank, though you wont rank well just from shiny new content, get networking and building a solid backlink profile from trusted sites, no quick fixes, "an easy link is most likely a bad link"!

Reselling hosting is a tough proposition to rank for. Not only are you up against the hosts, but you're up against all the others reselling.

I wouldn't focus my efforts on ranking, i'd focus on differentiating the business, through, for example, extra service, and getting positive user reviews. Eventually, it'll build a good business.

Yep, why beat your head against a wall? You know how many hosting affiliate sites there are already out there? You need to build an audience that trusts you first, and THEN you can recommend hosting to them. But you have a .00000009 percent chance of getting there solely on organic ranking at this point. Doesn't matter how unique your content is, how unique is your *value* ?

What if you already have a website with a single page which ranks in the top 10 for 'all widgets' based on previously LISTING and reviewing 'all widgets' with say phone numbers and contact info for the company and you now want to start SELLING each of the 'widgets' as an affiliate for some or all of the manufacturers of red, blue, green widgets (after previously relying ONLY on Adsense ads on that page)?
Will starting to do so affect SE keyword rankings for that page or site? What about linking from that 'all widgets' page to separate ON-SITE pages with much more detailed, 100% unique, descriptions and recommendations of the preferences about each of 'red widgets', 'blue widgets', etc. and more information about the product, and THEN linking from there to the various other off-site, affiliate site pages for company 'red widgets', etc.? Think there would be any difference overall? Is there any benefit to one method over the other assuming all are with rel=nofollow.
