The Reason Many Associate Marketing Enterprises Fail And How To Avoid The Same Errors: Part 2

Ok, following on from my previous piece, you have created your affiliate marketing shop, signed up for lots of presuming schemes, chosen the ads of websites whose products fall into your niche marketplace and inserted them on your webpage’s. You have found the keywords for your shop, put them into the header that describes your site, what it does and what it offers. Those are the first three parts of search engine optimisation finished and you are ready for the main one, the off site promotion.

To that end, as we left it last time, you’ve gone through the dull chore of having your shop listed in hundreds of internet business directories. At least you only want to do it once. But these will only be of importance to the search engines for a relatively short period, though they will continue to use them but what Google, Yahoo and the rest really need is to discover fresh links in other spots and that requires keeping links fresh. To achieve this you can utilise social networks for SEO use. First, create an id with Twitter using your web domain name as full name and Twitter name, or something similar if they’ve been taken. For instance, my affiliate marketing site is so I have a twitter name of ‘@internetfishing’ and full name ‘Internetfishing Shop’. Search for shops (I just searched on ‘fishing’ which unearthed plenty) that come into your niche market and follow them, and some will follow you in return. And then, at least once a day, tweet a message which includes a link to your site. Something like “Get the best XXX products in the world at http:// your site address here” (you must include the http://) and that will create a link which the robots will pick up and make a note that it is fresh and when they follow it to see your site which will acknowledge that it is still current.

Also, make a Facebook page for your site, and find the Twitter app to join it so that it also carries the Twitter messages and links as well.

Now, because your page is in the business of affiliate marketing, you want some likely folks to go to it, so enrol with some forums that match with your niche market. Join in some of the chat so that your username gets known. And then, after a while mention a note that you discovered something really great as a result of going to your page and insert a link. Also, investigate Usenet, though these are dropping from favour but still, write a message with your link in and post it in plenty of newsgroups. Someone may spot it, follow it, like it, bookmark it and be a frequent visitor. All of this is good, effective SEO and will target search engine robots and possible clients equally. But it won’t promote you far up the search engine rankings.

The subsequent part of SEO that is going to make the largest result in pushing your affiliate marketing website up the search engine results table is, of course the hardest and most labour intensive part of search engine optimisation. It is also the most contentious which is why it is going to take all of the third article of this little series of monograms all by itself, but it is the most effective and, if you want your site discovered by loads of shoppers, it’s the one you need to find out how to do right.
