I’ve been thinking about all the affiliate and internet marketing courses I’ve done over the years. How many just languish on my digital shelves and how many I actually used and still use. Many had short lifetimes because they exploited a loophole or trick to achieve their aim and, once that was plugged, whatever the course taught didn’t work any more.

Then there’s the simple reality that the internet is an incredibly dynamic entity. Google changes the rules on a what – daily, weekly, monthly basis? We get to hear about the big changes like Panda and Penguin but the knock-on effect of these changes has a direct bearing on how our …

I know many of you who read this blog build and try to rank your websites in order to generate income online, whether that’s as a supplemental income or a full-time income.

Ranking sites has certainly become more difficult in the last couple of years with the various changes in how Google assesses the value of sites. So here’s a list of resources that may make your job easier as well as providing other means of earning income from your sites.

Building Websites

The most popular site building platform online is WordPress. Most people who build websites for profit use it. It’s also free but does require some time to learn if …

I recently got an email from Gary Ambrose (an internet marketer who’s one of the better guys) promoting a product that turned out to be from another marketer called Jamie Lewis. The product was called Magnum Commissions.

The Sales Process Begins

The affiliate link took me to a video that introduced me to Magnum Commissions and how it was so easy to get commissions by promoting products on the internet. I decided to bite to see where this would take me. Two alarm bells rang though – the first was that the product was just $47, too low for the hard sell in the video so I fully expected an upsell …

It’s now been 6 weeks since Andrew Hansen launched his Forever Affiliate affiliate marketing blueprint, so I thought it was time to provide a progress report on how I’ve been doing with it.


Andrew Hansen’s Forever Affiliate Course Members Area

Getting Started

The first couple of weeks I spent just going through the course materials, familiarizing myself with Hansen’s approach to product research, site structure and layout, competition analysis and promotional techniques. There are quite a few videos in the course (about 60) so it takes time to go through them.

If you’ve been reading my recent posts you’ll know that I was humming and hawing about whether to sign up …

A while ago I asked my email list what topics they’d like me to write about. One of the top requests was on how to drive traffic to their websites. So with that in mind…

What Is Link Building?

Websites live or die on the web traffic and site visitors they get. And to get that traffic, webmasters have to promote their sites. There are various ways to do site promotion, which I’ll look at below, but they all revolve around one purpose: getting backlinks to your website.

UPDATE: This Tool Is Ancient By Affiliate Marketing Standards

You’d be far better off using modern tools such as Backlinks Indexer or SocialADR.

The emails I get most often from people are about how they can drive traffic to their websites.

A tool I came across not so long ago is SEO Equalizer. It’s been around for a while and sells for $27 and was a good tool back in 2008-2011. Not so much now..

But, Charles Kirkland convinced it’s author, Jeff Alderson, to reduce the price in this Warrior Special Offer to only a fraction of that cost (currently $17)…but the price is shooting up as folks are …

It’s been a little over 2 months since my last progress report on the Cheap Electricity Options blog. The blog is now just over 4 months old. This is what it looks like now:

I’ve added a couple of more plugins to the site to help in getting more backlinks:

Indexing Tool Plugin: This is a commercial plugin ($47) that aids in getting backlinks by getting the articles you submit to article directories and blogs indexed. Rather than repeating information here, you can read my review of the Indexing Tool plugin here.

Pingback Optimizer Plugin: This is an alternative plugin to the Index Tool above but, since both plugins use different …
