Big site with 2x automation in an ever-green niche
The site is live and 100% functional, click link to view!
The oldest winery ever found (in Armenia) is said to be 6,000 year old, there’s no doubt that WINE is certainly an ever-green niche! So, given the importance of the topic we’ve paid extra attention to this project. The site has two automations. One pulls in Amazon products in the two main categories they have (wines accessories, and related sub-categories) as well as videos. The second syndicates all the major wine enthusiasts blogs feeding three categories: news, reviews, and photos (these are shown on every internal page). Clicking on titles opens the post on site if it is an Amazon product, or at the originating syndicated sites if it is an article. (If you want all the stories to open on site it is just a one-click setting in the options).
The site layout is widgeted, obviously with 15 categories not all of them have been placed on the homepage. There is also a fully customizable slideshow and plenty of static adverts which beside WPRobot affiliate products getting automatically pulled in every 1-2 days should help with conversions.
Besides the latest code, theme etc. the site also has a nice banner, social icons, contact/privacy pages and our usual attention to details (see for example how videos open in a large nice lightbox).
