Q: I have a question about self-replicating Web sites… how effective are they?
A: My recommendation would be to avoid self-replicating Web sites. For the most part, I’ve seen them offered through Multi-Level Marketing schemes, rather than affiliate programs.
However, there are certainly some affiliate programs that do have them.
Anyhow, these self-replicating Web sites are geared towards people who don’t have an ability to create a Web site or any sort of presence online themselves to promote affiliate links.
These sites are so homogenized and non-unique that I would say to stray away from them.
Instead, build up your own unique experience online to sell whatever product or service it is that you are promoting. I think you’ll find that this approach is more lucrative for you.
