SEO Tricks for Affiliates



The majority of the world’s working population perform their jobs  in offices and most of the world’s working population do not  like their jobs because, well, who wants to work? So, if you  don’t like to work but have to work anyway, why stick yourself  into a job with low pay? The best solution would be to find a  high-paying job, work hard and then start your own business if  you can. The problem is, even with a high paying job, you can’t  earn enough money to start a business.

The World Wide Web, being an economy in itself, offers a  variety of opportunities for making money. You can try your hand  at freelance jobs like data encoding, medical transcription,  article composition and programming. There are a number of  freelancer websites that you can join so you may work at home  and put some extra money in your pocket. Start-up capital = $0

There are supposedly expert moneymakers who, for a small fee of  $100 to $200 will teach you how to earn $2,000 to $10,000 a  month. You can try out their system for free, but, you will have  to place a deposit to be able to get the free trial. Start-up  capital = $49 to $100 depending on deposit requirements.

Finally, you can be a passive internet salesperson. I call it  passive because all you have to do is establish a base of  operations in the internet. Once that base has been established,  you have the potential to earn from $0 to unlimited income. All  you have to do afterwards is maintain or update that base once  every three months. And yes, this advice is free. No trial  offers, and no deposits required. Read on please.

Vendor sites like offer internet surfers the  opportunity of earning additional income in exchange for the  promotion of their website and products. This is how it works.  You will need to sign-up for affiliate membership. Most vendor  sites that offer affiliate programs do not charge you for this.  This is only fair since you will be selling them to people. Be  wary of vendor sites that charge fees for membership to their  affiliate programs.

Once you join-up, they will give you a reference number or an  ID number that you will paste into your html scripts. Your  vendor site will give you instructions on how to paste them.

Normally, an affiliate will have to have a website where they  can promote the vendor site. You will promote the vendor site by  adding links to the site’s home page and some specific products  which you think will sell more. You will need to design your  website to accommodate these links as well as alter some of your  websites graphics to make way for banners, or picture links.  Don’t forget to add the ID or reference number to the link so  that the vendor can identify your referral.

Once you have the links in place, you will need to write some  250++ words about the product you are selling. I recommend  allotting 1 web page per product as this will help you in search  engine result rankings. The content you write will have to be  relevant and filled with keywords that pertain to the product  itself. Once everything is done, you need to find out if your  website shows up in search engine queries when browsing for your  product.

If you think this is too much work, you can try writing  newsletters about a product on a vendor site that contains links  to the product. You then post the newsletter on the internet and  hope that a search engine indexes it.

Mind you, this isn’t a get rich quick scheme. Times are hard  and we need all the financial assistance we can get. This is  just one option where you can possibly earn a lot more than your  current income.

The problem with most affiliate is that they don’t last  long because they fail to maintain and update their product  links. Some of the products that you have linked to before may  have already been discontinued. You need to check on your links  at least once every 3 months or once a month at optimum.  Finally, don’t be content with what you have. Look for  additional products to sell.
