I just received an email from Andrew Hansen (a marketer I’ve come to trust) about his new Forever Affiliate internet marketing course. I don’t have the time to paraphrase it, so here it is in its entirety. I haven’t bought his course so can’t comment on its effectiveness but it’s something you might be interested in:

To those of you who have already joined me at Forever Affiliate – welcome! We’re about to do some very profitable things together 🙂

If you haven’t yet, I want to talk to you today a little bit more about what Forever Affiliate really is, and how it’s strategies can grow your online income.

First …

2012 saw two major updates to Google’s search engine known as the Panda and Penguin updates. These changed the landscape by introducing new criteria by which websites are ranked. It’s fair to say that while Google intended to scrub thin, spammy sites from its index and boost quality sites to the top of the rankings, the exact opposite happened.

There are plenty of stories about legitimate online businesses (not internet or affiliate marketers) who saw their sites (and earnings) tank overnight as a result of the Google updates (particularly Penguin). Despite the hue and cry that was raised at the time, Google remained uncharacteristically quiet in the aftermath. Perhaps they were too …

I’ve added a new free report called “YouTube Saturation” which goes into why YouTube is a video marketing channel you should consider if you’re not already using it. And, if you do already use YouTube, the report also gives you some new ways of turning YouTube to your affiliate marketing advantage.

You can get the report here.

A few months ago Mike Johnson and the Profit.FM team had an idea on the best way to improve the amount of traffic that we as affiliate marketers get to our offers. Not just products we own, but affiliate offers as well.

They looked at Amazon and saw the success they were having and saw that all kinds of businesses were saying they were getting a minimum of 34-35% increases in sales conversions just by doing one small thing…

Adding user generated reviews to their sites.

Simple right?

Well there is still the problem of getting traffic and keeping traffic coming and making sure that traffic is “Buyer” traffic.

In the end, …

One way you can improve your organic search results is to use pay-per-click (PPC) advertising. There are two ways to go here: either do it yourself or outsource to a pay per click management service.

Going It Alone With PPC

With this option, you bid on keywords in a PPC engine (like Google Adwords) and create ad campaigns to advertise your wares. The higher you bid for a keyword, the higher your ad will appear on searches for that keyword. You only get charged when someone actually clicks on your ad (paid per click) rather than when your ad is displayed. For this reason, bidding for PPC keywords can be a very …

Back in early May, I wrote an article about how the Google Penguin update affected affiliate marketers and offered some advice on how to do backlinking following that update. The article was originally written for EzineArticles, to provide useful information to readers and to advertise my site via my author bio.

EzineArticles refused to publish the article. I’ve since added the article, verbatim, to this and you can read it here so you can judge it for yourself. Here’s the response I got from EzineArticles:

Hi Gary,

Thank you for your email.

Your article, “The Carnage Created By The Google Penguin Update” has been placed in problem status for two reasons. I …

Well, Google has thrown the cat among the pigeons again with its recent Google Penguin Update.

Many affiliate marketers have seen their traffic plummet in the last couple of weeks and site rankings have been affected as well. What’s more, searches for keyword phrases are tending to show sites with poor content above those with useful content, in the search results.

So What’s Going On?

Well, first of all, the Google Penguin update has proven to be very unsettling for those who do SEO and, let’s face it – that’s anyone who is making, or trying to make a living online. Even SEO professionals have been confounded by how their sites, …

I’m going to be talking about some changes that are required to your link building strategy today, thanks to a new little update at Google.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard by now that Google has been on a rampage this last month, testing out some new spam prevention features, and leaving devastated webmasters (and many affiliates) in their wake.

Unlike most algorithm updates, this is one that you really need to pay attention to if you’re an affiliate marketer looking for free traffic. This one has real and immediate implications.

Basically there are some changes you need to make to your link building strategy, starting today, and …

UPDATE: Affiliate Recon Is No Longer Available

If you’re looking for a course on how to build a profitable blog, my current recommended courses are Wealthy Affiliate, Affilorama and Clickbank Passive Income.

You may not be aware that a brand new service just launched, one that gives you “verifiable 6 figure affiliate niches” on a platter, every month, complete with keyword research, competition analysis, backlink opportunities, affiliate offers and more.

It’s called Affiliate Recon, and it was created by the highly trustworthy “guru to the gurus” Chris Rempel, and it looks to be pretty awesome.

I’m just going to give you 5 reasons why if you’re serious about making …

We know you get this stuff all the time, but a new product is just about to be released (12:00PM EST today) which is a lot different than most of the stuff you are seeing out there these days.

This new product has been built as a huge portal for building an internet business. This thing is big, but it is one of the most perfectly setup operations we have ever seen.

Honestly, if you have ever wanted to get on track with setting up your own Internet Marketing Business without a bunch of hype. Without a bunch of Gimmicks.

This is it.

Imagine being able to build an entire business online …
