The fine strands that hold the web together for search engine data is representative of the multiple fine strands that can be created in a networking environment for affiliate revenue businesses. One strand is never quite enough so when many strands combine the overall effect if positive for all involved.
When you are able to establish aggregated inbound links from affiliates your primary website can receive a higher trust ranking in search engine placement. The greater the trust factor in your site the greater the trust factor for customers and prospects. The greater the trust factor among customers the great conversion rates you will find.
For the affiliate this scenario still remains a positive especially if they place a concerted emphasis in developing their affiliate revenue website with keywords and phrases that are in keeping with the primary thrust of the product or service.
There are many sites that are developed without paying any attention to keywords or knowledge based articles that can enhance the visitor’s opinion and understanding of the product. In essence their approach is a bit like a fisherman who throws his line in the water, but never bothered to put any bait on the hook. The fish gaze at the bare hook, but the call to action (bait) is missing and the fish eventually move on to something more inviting.
Too many sites are like that hapless fisherman; they want customers, but lack any meaningful bait (call to action) for the customer to consider. Without that the customers tend to venture off elsewhere wondering why they dropped by in the first place.
You don’t have to be hard sell to initiate a call to action. The call to action can be as simple as “Let’s get started,” or “The next step”. Simple or elaborate – a call to action is imperative.
When you sign on as an affiliate it is similar to agreeing to be a salesperson for the product you’d like to receive commissions from.

Proper Search Engine Optimization (SEO) techniques are one of the best long-term ways to get your site noticed.
