SEO Methods For Affiliate Marketing
SEO methods for affiliate marketing cover many subjects. These subjects, which i will be covering in this post, will apply to how all the search engines operate. I do tend to lean more towards how Google works because new figures tell us that 71% of global searches online are done on Google. This figure rises to 75% on all local searches. It is still worth looking at Bing and Yahoo as 29% of internet users still equates to around 600 million. That is 600 million prospective customers you can reach out to.
SEO methods for affiliate marketing are always consistent and following these techniques will bring good search engine rankings. When Google looks at your website or blog, it will look for four basic things.
• Clean URL
Links will give your site popularity in google’s eyes. Having links to other sites, especially authority sites will boost your reputation with search engines. Also, use some linking structure within your content to link to your other posts within your blog. This goes down very well with Google. The more content you produce, you will get used to linking your content to your information or products that you want to direct people towards.
Good use and selection of your content title gives your content its relativity to the information it is introducing. There is no use in talking about horses if your title is ‘I love Cats!’ I know this sounds obvious and it is an exaggerated example but I see so many disjointed blog posts that have no chance of getting ranked where you want them. Have you noticed at the bottom of the google search results page that it runs from page 1 to page 10 then beyond? These pages are full of websites and blog posts that don’t have theme relativity or structure to them. So make sure your title is relative to the content. I can show you how to find the right sort of titles to help your content.
If you’re not sure what a clean URL is then take a look at the top of your screen and just below the blue band right at the top you’ll see the text box that you can type whatever website address you want to check out. The address that you type out is the URL. URL stands for uniform (or universal) resource locator – the address of a world wide web page. Google likes to see a clean URL which is to say http://www.adrianwhitworth.com is preferable to http://www.how-we-can-climb-up-ladders-in-the-dark-without-lights-on2356246246.net This is because it is better to have no more than around 15-17 characters, dot com is always ranked better, and symbols within the URL can delay your search engine ranking because it can be seen as spam. I have some training that can go into this a little deeper for you.
Keywords can be a huge subject so I’ll keep it simple with a link to my videos and posts.
keywords can be:
• Your Domain name
• Your content title
• A question you may put into a search engine
• Words that describe the information, products or services that describe your content.
So when looking at what keywords are or mean. They can be words or a phrase used in your URL, content title or content itself that are relative or ‘key’to the theme of the information in the site or blog. Google will index keywords and the words used around them. LSI keywords give your keywords more relevance. LSI stands for latent semantic indexing. What it basically means is that if you have a keyword which is ‘horse’, then LSI keywords would be stable, hooves, saddle ect. By using LSI keywords you will get ranked higher.
SEO methods for affiliate marketing as discussed in this post should be consistently followed and applied everytime to give your content the best possible chance of page 1 ranking in the search engines. By supplying the search engines with relevant URL, titles, content, links and keyword structure in your post you will get ranked high because you have a strong piece of information that is understandable and informative. And through good page ranking, you will have the best possible chance of making money online with affiliate marketing.
