Two things I need to tell you about in this post, both of which will have immediate and lasting effects on your search engine rankings… both take minutes to implement.
The first of these things I’ve written up totally in this post, and the second one is at another link. So relax and read all the way through this post now…
#1: If You’re Doing This, Stop NOW
As Andrew Hanson taught in his Unstoppable Affiliate course (no longer available), one of the more distinct changes in the Google algorithm implemented in the Panda update is the integration of user feedback data as an influence on search results (no, it doesn’t mean …
Adding products from Commission Junction advertisers to a blog has not been one of the easier tasks for affiliate marketers, especially not as posts for individual products.
One way to do it is to use the datafeeds provided by advertisers but you need a plugin like CVSPig or WP All Import to convert the datafeed into posts. And there may be some massaging of the datafeed required to remove unwanted products for example.
I just became aware of a brand new Commission Junction plugin that takes a different approach. What you do is select the advertisers you want to work with (only work with advertisers who’ve approved you) and select the products …
One Affiliate Marketing Difficulty
One of the hardest things for any Affiliate Marketer to do is to pick a Niche that will allow them to build a successful and profitable blog or website. This is especially true for Auto Blogs. “How do I find the best Niche?” or “What is the Best Niche to Start with when building Affiliate Websites or Auto Blogging?” are the most common questions asked by affiliate marketers.
It’s actually quite difficult to explain this process as it’s more art than science. We all know there are great tools out there like Micro Niche Finder and Market Samurai, but these tools can’t tell you if a niche is …
UPDATE: This plugin is no longer available and nothing similar is available these days.
I thought I’d written a review of Web Traffic Genius some months back but, since I can’t find such a review on this blog, I guess I never wrote it!
Normally I’d add a new product review here but this time what I’ve done is set up a new domain exclusively for the review, so click here to read my Web Traffic Genius Software Review.
I now use Web Traffic Genius on all my blogs because it makes generating backlinks so easy but like all software, it has its good and bad points. I detail those, as I …
If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ll know that I’ve mentioned the AutoBlog Blueprint in several posts. It is, I believe, the most thorough course on blogging available and covers all aspects of setting up an automated blog from keyword research to webhosting, free and commercial plugins to use and the all-important backlinking strategy for sites.
It’s the philosophy I follow for building blogs that I can’t personally maintain in a day-to-day basis, like those I have for sale on the Domains & Blogs For Sale page and other blogs I’m building purely for myself. There are only so many hours in a day after all.
Version 2 of the …
I’ve added a new page to this site called Domain Names & Blogs For Sale where I’ll be selling aged domain names and pre-built WordPress blogs. Stats for each (PageRank, Alexa traffic, pages indexed and no of backlinks) are available from the page.
If there’s a niche or topic you’d be interested in seeing a blog created for, drop me an email. I can’t promise that I have the content available to build such a blog but there’s a good chance that I do.
Check the page fairly frequently (about once a week) to see what new domains and/or blogs are on offer.
UPDATE: This plugin is no longer available
If you do article marketing, your articles will be added to numerous blogs, especially if you use a service like Unique Article Wizard (UAW) or Article Builder. But, generally, once the articles are submitted, we all assume it’s job done and move on to something else.
Each article submitted will have a couple of links in it to your site and if there are several hundred versions of an article submitted to services like UAW or ArticleBuilder, then that’s several hundred backlinks we’ll get as a result. Right? That’s what I thought but it’s not the case.
You only get the backlinks if the …
