Hi there. There are many profitable reasons why people get into online store. But the real challenge is driving traffic to your website can be a daunting task most especially if you're starting up. As a friendly advise, I think you need to earn the trust of potential customers or your target clients, then determine the strategy that you will use to promote the products or services. Other than that you also need to have a good quality content, strategic SEO, competitive keywords and effective email marketing.

MrXgame - for your http://mrxgame.com/ site only.

1. Your index.php is missing from http://mrxgame.com/ so currently the site shows the file listing when I just go to http://mrxgame.com/

2. Less is more. Pick a tighter niche. I've only been doing AOM for about a year as well (with limited success) and in that time I have seen a number of gaming sites come and go already.
Pick something specific and be the No.1 for that. For all gaming you are not going to beat the big boys.
Maybe controllers, pre-order, role playing games, racing games, or pick a single console and focus on hat.
Being broad means you are no different than the rest of the sites on the web. While if somebody is looking for a specific controller or game and that's your focus you are already more relevant that the broad sites.

3. I'm assuming English isn't your first language as your blog has a number of grammatical errors in the posts I read.
If you are using an online translation tool a technique to get it closer is to use it one way and then have the output translated back. In this way you can see if it's close. Not perfect but better.

4. Blog again. It appears as if under every post you link to all the other posts. This isn't good. Effectively you are stuffing links and Google doesn't like this.

5. Your actual store has no top banner/bar identifying it and so it looks a bit wrong. This reduces trust.

6. Why have your Twitter account secure. Don't you want everybody to see your promotional Tweets.

7. Client Testimonial - look like lies to me. Both appear to have the same writing style The second one even mentions one of your other sites above. Again, if they are not genuine then it makes your site look untrustworthy and visitors will not buy.

I hope this is the kind of thing you are looking for.

Don't use an index.php file. Use directoryindex shop.php in your .htaccess file instead.

Mike.
I think I wasn't clear in my post.
The site has a whole other section that is not part of the shop.php (AOM store).
If you go to one of the pages like http://mrxgame.com/about_us.php then the main site comes up, but it appears there is no index.php and no default page being called for just the domain name. There is an index1.php so maybe after changes they forgot to rename it back.

But, yes, if you want shop.php to be the home page use the .httaccess method rather than renaming it to index.php

Thanks to Mike and Albert, you both right.
For point 1. :My site loosing the index.php because when I changed the header, the index.php not working (site not appeared) so I decide to reinstall with new lite version 5.3.0. (Now I'm still working on it)

Point 2 : Nice Tips, I will follow.
Point 3 : My english is not perfect, all posts using google translator.
Point 4 : Albert is right, previously MrXgame is blog whereas selling clickbank products and got PR #1 on Alexa but not yet made a sales, then after I found AOM, I combine them.
Point 5 : I don't understand, not clear enough for me
Point 6 : Don't have twitter account, I will try it.
Point 7 : Agreed, it looks like lies to me either

What about other sites :
http://kidstazion.com/
http://rajaadwords.com/

All advices are welcome

Thanks,
MrXgame

http://kidstazion.com/

Strangely I like the name. Doesn't make sense, but looks right.

Was the name previously used for a different site?
If I search links:http://www.kidstazion.com in Google I get a lot of Page Not found errors (404) this causes the site to be ranked badly.
Maybe sign up for Google Webmaster and submit a site map.

Again, very broad site covering all types of products.
If I walked into a physical store that I never heard of before that sold shoes, video games, watches and TVs I would think something was wrong and I'd turn around and leave straight away and find somewhere else to buy what I was looking for.

I've heard Google gets a bit mad if there are too many links on a page with 100 being a max that is acceptable. Using http://www.instantposition.com/links_spider.cfm I checked your home page and there are 390 links. Again, no focus.

When I go to [Kids Games] I still have the side bar for [More Shoes] Strange...

For Kids stuff why are there links to Office Products on the left side.

So, same summary.
Give it focus - pick something smaller that you can be No.1 at and SEO and market it obsessively.

Being broad means nobody knows why your important.
If you were looking for a carpenter to do a top job that you could be proud of would you pick a carpenter or somebody who does carpentry, plumbing, electrics, painting, gardening, deliveries, babysitting, dog walking and a 382 other things (referring to No. of links above)

I know which I'd go for.

http://rajaadwords.com/

I like the focus of the site and with adwords in the title it (kind of) relates to the topic being covered.
Very heavy on the links. Maybe remove the Infolinks on your Blog posts to show the content is tied to your site and not somebody elses site/service.
All your blog posts appear to be just ads for products. If every blog post is an ad then it reduces the trust in the advice. Mix it up with some blog posts that do not blatantly try to sell a product.

Again, reduce the links per page. Maybe pick one section of the site like Adwords as per the domain name and become the go to site for that.

On the web, especially for web design may people are looking for free advice and there is a lot of it out there from Social Media experts...Tough to compete unless you focus.

There is a great book called "The 22 Immutable Laws of Marketing", yes it's on Amazon, but I'm not going to Affiliate link here. It's short and easy to digest. The first 5 are really great.

A summary of the 22 can be found here. In Summary this person didn't rate the book, but I really believe the first 5 are key to any business.

http://blog.kowalczyk.info/articles/22- ... -laws.html

I hope this is helpful.
I'm most definitely not an expert on AOM and SEO and promoting. I try things and some stick, but other things appear to have affect. So, just keep plugging away at it and you'll get there.

Albert, thanks again for your positive feedback.
Now I got the picture, and will do improvement.

Another question, how to use the .httaccess method for shop.php to be my homepage?

Thanks to give step by step action.

Thanks Mike,
I have read them and implemented and now http://mrxgame.com is up successfully.
your comments for mrxgame.com please.

Promoting the sites :
I'm still confusing in promoting the site. I've ever got banned by google adsense when buying traffic. That's against TOS. I don't want it happened again.
Can you refer to which forum/discussion to promote the sites?
Hope it's not too late.

Thanks
