Thanks again for good answer..To be honest, affiliate programs do not care much about design. Or not at all to be honest . They do not even care about the level of English. As long as you have the affiliate disclaimer on the site, you're good to go. Ad networks can be much more picky here...
What matters for the affiliate programs is traffic, clicks to their platforms, conversions. Remember the specific affiliate program I run on my website, as a small side income stream?
The affiliate manager shared with me once their best publishers. The no. 1 on the list made $10K from affiliate commissions on best months.
And I can tell you that the website was just horrible. Actually it was worst than that, but I perhaps cannot find a better expression . The design was completely awful, texts were just stuffed with affiliate links to the program in question, and often they did not even make sense....
Anyway, it was as close a match to the program as it can be, they ranked for the right keywords (it was a very old domain in that specific niche), they generated clicks & conversions, so apparently everyone was happy.
But to answer your question: Maybe you can, just to give yourself a short break from writing. It helps to alternate between various activities... Just try to not spend entire month with that .
I got rejected by a smaller cpa-network although I have unique and quality content, my website is does not look spammy and it solves a problem, answers the peoples question and I am giving them a few choices. Thought maybe the design would help.
To be fair I enjoy writing content. Maybe I should keep pushing out articles although half of my current ones aren't indexed. Do you have any thoghts about this?
I've read some where in different threads, that around 120 articles and 1 month old website would make $1000 approximately. I know this is jus an estimate and it depends a lot on the articles, wordcount, keyword volume, affiliate comission and much more..but when do you think I will see my first dimes on this website. I am patient but want to make the money now. Haven't built any links yet.
