The Problem With Posting Affiliate Links On Facebook

Ever tried posting an affiliate link for a network like JVZoo or WarriorPlus on Facebook and been presented with a message that says your link breaks their Community Standards?

Facebook doesn’t like affiliate marketers, especially when they try to post affiliate links for free on their timelines, on pages or in groups.

They’re quite happy to let you post those links if you pay them, by buying Facebook Ads though.

Solution 1 (Which Doesn’t Work) – Link Redirections

A way to mask affiliate links is to use a free plugin like Shortlinks by Pretty Links (if you use WordPress).

This wraps ugly affiliate links …

Internal Links For SEO

 

I have a small confession to make…I don’t enjoy the process of link building, whether it’s internal or external.

It’s slow and time consuming, especially if you do it manually yourself.

Or it’s quick and expensive if you decide to outsource the task.

I just want to do my keyword research, publish content, and rank!

I won’t go into all the pros and cons of manually building external links (that is, links on other sites pointing back to yours) – it’s controversial.

Black-hat methods, white-hat methods and grey-hat methods than sit somewhere in-between.

Why Do You Need Links At All?

I’ve been building websites and trying to rank them on …

My recommendation would be WordPress. Being the most popular blogging platform and CMS on the planet means that it also has the biggest number of addons available.

There are tens of thousands of themes – free and paid – to make your blog look the way you want. And there are tens of thousands (possibly hundreds of thousands) of plugins that allow you to extend the functionality of your blog.

The downside if it being the most popular platform is that WordPress sites are also the most targeted by hackers. Something like 30,000 sites are hacked each day.

So knowing how to make your blogs secure, or having someone build a secure

WP GDPR Compliance Plugin Hacked

If you visited this site yesterday, you’ll have found it in a bit of a mess. While the content was displaying, there was zero formatting and no active theme.

Initially, I thought this was a caching issue – some cached corrupted files being loaded – so I cleared out the local cache. Nope, that wasn’t the problem.

For additional site security, I use Cloudflare which filters out a lot of bad traffic and such. It also has its own caching mechanism and provides an additional security layer between visitors and my site.

I cleared out the Cloudflare cache. That didn’t fix the problem either.

Next I took Internet Marketing Strategies out of …

Email List Building Techniques Site Menu

Something that was annoying me on one of my sites was that custom links I’d set up in my main navigation menu would open in the same tab, replacing my site in the tab.

I prefer links to external sites to open in a new tab.

I thought that this opening in the same tab thing was a peculiarity of WordPress.

Turns out you can indeed open any menu links in a new tab if you want to.

There’s a hidden setting you need to access to enable this feature.

Go to to the Appeance -> Menus page. At the top right of the screen is a button called Screen Options. …

404 page image

Chances are that if someone visits a bad address on your website (it could be a mis-spelled URL, a page that’s since been deleted, etc), they’ll see a 404 page.

It’s simply a catchall page that visitors are directed to when a page URL is invalid. And most webmasters do nothing with this page.

However, it is a page that can be monetized. Why not put an ad on the page for some product related to your niche? You likely won’t get many sales, but you’ll get zero sales from a standard 404 page.

You could also turn it into an informational page with links directing visitors to other important parts of …

WP Toolkit Developer's Edition

If you build lots of WordPress blogs for yourself or, especially, if you build sites for sale or for clients, one issue you’ve probably come up against are the licensing rights for some of the themes and plugins you use.

Not every commercial theme or plugin can be included in a handover of a site to a new owner. In some cases, the new owner is required to buy their own license for a theme or a plugin or two.

Many developers in the WordPress community sell what are known as Developer’s Rights for their products, allowing you to include their products on sites you build for sale or for clients.

But …

The ArbiCash System

In case you don’t know what arbitrage is, it’s buying something for one price and selling it for a higher price (hopefully) and pocketing the difference.

It’s an ancient way of doing business and its use continues today because it can be very profitable.

It’s a model I used over a decade ago when I used to buy space program memorabilia on auction sites and then sell it at a profit either on eBay or locally through classified ads.

It’s a model that can also work well for webmasters.
