This week we talked on a few topics. I wanted to get out what I did all week since it was very interesting between taking pictures of fireworks in the Hudson river to passing out on the train from heat exhaustion.
You can see the full show notes over on Affiliate ABC's.com.
We get into talking about what affiliates are doing wrong.
1) Some things that Affiliates are still doing is making websites with 20+ affiliate links on their homepage and not linking out to anything else. Why not just write add copy on your site with the words “Hello Google this is an affiliate site”
2) These websites are not getting natural back links because no one links to websites that have 20 unrelated products on them. They also don’t get any social media love.
3) Use Google analytics to show Google how good your site is. Don’t listen to anyone that says using Google analytics hurts your rankings.
4) Stop getting easy backlinks. If they are easy to get odds are Google doesn’t count them at all. Example: article directories
