Great Web Content – Higher Search Engine Rank

Here’s a scenario you don’t want to happen:

You’ve spent hours and hours researching the best most profitable keywords for your particular affiliate web page. You chose these keywords because they have good demand, people are searching these terms yet they are not so competitive that they are impossible to rank well for within the top 2 pages of Google MSN or Yahoo.

You’ve also gained a few quality inbound links via reciprocal link partners and writing a few relevant articles that have inbound links pointing at your target page.

The search engines have rewarded your efforts by giving you a top 20 listing this popular search term.

You notice an increase in traffic to this page. No doubt due to the exposure in the SE’s.

After a few days you notice your page is dropped like a hot potato and your top 20 ranking is gone you’re now on page 11 buried... never to be found!

Lets back track to see what might have happened.

1. Web surfer types in your popular term into the SE (MSN, Google…) (great!)
2. Your listing displays in the first two pages of search results (great!)
3. Visitor reads your description which seems relevant and decides to click and visit your page (great!)
4. Visitor enters your page and quickly leaves…(Not great!)

What happened?

You did everything correctly in leading the visitor to your page with good keywords and offpage optimization, but they left because your web content was not compelling, relevant or interesting enough to grab and keep their attention.

You will eventually lose SE rankings if the major SE’s detect this pattern of visitor behavior, that is, where the visitor finds your site through legitimate keyword search yet quickly clicks back to the search results page and continues looking.

Why?

Because the SE’s will deem your pages not relevant for that particular search term.
Remember, there is a correlation between web content - higher search engine rank and increased online traffic.


It is therefore critical to write compelling, interesting relevant content especially for affiliate type websites. Do not try to hard sell the affiliate products you are trying to get visitors to click on (your merchant site). Instead, pre-sell them with the best information stressing in real terms what the benefits are to the visitor. You want them to willingly click on the merchant link with an “ open to buy “ mentality.

There is an art to writing content to pre-sell your visitors…

Here are a few tips:

Stress the Benefits Early

What you say will greatly effect if the person stays or leaves your web page. This seems like the most obvious thing yet so many web sites get it wrong. You must quickly within the first few seconds (remember this is internet time) establish the benefit of whatever your page is promoting…and how it is useful to the visitor.
Leave the "I " and "About Us" pages out of site until the visitor has gained trust looking for what they want whether you're providing information or actual products.

Read Your Page From the Visitors Perspective

Sure you understand what you are saying, you wrote it! But is it really clear to a first time visitor? Strive to make the complex sound simple…that's what communicating is really about. Hopefully your website topic or theme isn't about something inherently complex however you still need to stand back and reread it.

Don't assume the visitor has great knowledge about what you are writing about so don't leave things out that you think are unimportant. Make sure you define any jargon or industry related terms that may confuse the visitor.

Make sure your content flows logically. Avoid the scattered thought syndrome where ideas are all over the page. Reread.

Make sure your page navigation is consistent from page to page. If the visitor gets lost a good site map can solve this problem; make sure this link is included with your main navigation.

These are just 2 important and effective methods of creating better content.

Getting Paid By the Casinos to Play

Here are some simple steps on how to get the freebies casinos offer their players.

The forward approach will work well in this situation. This is where you call the casinos and ask them what they will offer you to come to their casino to do some gambling. In most cases the casinos may offer you some free meals and maybe even a show. If you call and tell them you are bringing a group of people to their casinos they may even go as far as to give you a suite for yourself and give a break on the other rooms for your trip.

A variation of the forward approach is to call a casino and get them to give you a comp then call all the other casinos and see if they will match or beat the other casinos offer. If you can convince them you are worth them bringing you to their casino they may just try to outbid the previous casino, and if they really want you they may pick you up from your home or the airport depending on where you live in a limo and convince them you are a high roller in the casinos a…

2 Tier Affiliate Programs Explained

How will refering new affiliates to an affiliate program make me money in the future? Thats where a 2 tier affiliate program works like magic!

 Affiliates are getting cleverer by the day. So these days, affiliates know the difference between the different types of traffic they can get paid for. There are a lot of definitions though – CPM, CPC, CPA, CPL, CPD and many more.

 CPM is impressions, when the publisher (the website owner) gets paid every time a banner is shown.

 CPC is clicks, where the publisher (or email marketer and other marketers) gets paid every time a banner or text link is clicked upon.

 An affiliate is a marketer who sends visitors to another site using a variety of methods (such as placing banners or text links on their own site, buying sponsored listings on search engines, email marketing and many other diff…

Five Tips for Making Money from Home During the Pandemic?

TORONTO -- Even in the midst of a pandemic and near-shutdown of the economy, there are ways to improve your financial standing.

Financial coach David Lester appeared on CTV's Your Morning Thursday, to offer five suggestions of ways anyone can make money right now, even from home.
The COVID-19 pandemic has left a lot of people in a position where they're spending a lot more time at home.
That may mean more time for pursuing passions and exploring pastimes – something Lester said a savvy hobbyist can try to monetize.
"If there are any skills that you have – if you're an amazing chef, if you're great at decorating, whatever you can do from home – you can sell Zoom lessons," he said.
It may sound counter-intuitive, but Lester sees now as a good time to start a new business.
The key, he said, is that coronavirus-induced changes to society will require new products and services. This creates opportunities for anyone who can see a niche need coming, whether it be in onlin…
