After our post on writing better reviews, we got a lot of interest from readers asking us what it takes to create a great product review site.

Unfortunately for the internet, when people think of building affiliate websites, they usually think of doing something like this:

Affiliate websites like these are all over the web.

They have no ambition and are designed just to siphon off affiliate commissions by overselling without subtleties.

Little wonder that they drop off the radar within months.

In fact, they give away so much value that you don’t even see their affiliate links.

At Authority Hacker, we’ve always been about building long-term businesses with a focus on delivering value in order to build a real audience and ensure the site doesn’t get penalised down the line.

1. Nerdwallet


Nerdwallet is one of my favorite affiliate websites, and I’m sure plenty of affiliate marketers would tell you the same.

It’s been around for a long while, it does enormously well in one of the most competitive markets, and the content is genuinely useful.

Nerdwallet is essentially a review affiliate site for financial products. The cover everything from credit cards to mortgages to investing to insurance.

Have stellar contents, and exceptional user interface, and a really good marketing team.

They’ve basically been the gold standard of affiliate sites for the last several years (in my view anyway).

  • Niche: Consumer finance
  • Goal: Help people pick the best credit cards, loans, insurance, etc.
  • Key Challenge: Extremely competitive market.

  1. Make tools. So much of Nerdwallet’s best content comes into will form, and that’s because not only is a great for user experience, but tools also tend to attract lots of links, and SEO is a major part of this site’s strategy.
  2. Update key pages. Nerdwallet makes a practice of updating their key pages. For example, their big guides, like, “Best Credit Cards 2016” will be updated annually (to “Best Credit Cards 2019”), making them relevant in giving their marketing team an opportunity to market them again.

2. Money Saving Expert


MoneySavingExpert.com helps ordinary people make better financial decisions. Think of it as financial education for the masses that helps people get more bang for their buck.

The site was started by Martin Lewis, a financial journalist, in 2003. Today, it ranks as one of the biggest consumer affiliate websites in the UK with over 8 million visits every month.

In a field filled with self-serving information and dubious knowledge, MoneySavingExpert (MSE) has managed to set itself apart thanks to its content quality and devotion to helping consumers.

The site was sold to Moneysupermarket.com in 2012 for £87 million.
