Landing Page for affiliate link on squidoo, should I build a list?

by Theory5 6 replies
Ok, so I setup a moneypage on squidoo with an affiliate link and a link wheel linking to it and backlinks to spokes in the wheel. I did all of this yesterday, and I have a couple views already but only 1 on squidoo. I was thinking, should I also use my squidoo page to start building a list?
Take a look and tell me if I am missing something: Reselling PLR Products

    You don't want to own and control your own money-page, and be free from anyone's changeable and sometimes idiosyncratically interpreted terms of service, then? :confused:

    I'm sure Squidoo will be delighted with you generating traffic for them.

    I feel more comfortable using sites like that, owned by other people, as part of my backlinking strategy and to get traffic from them to my money site, not to send traffic to them.

    No; you should use a page/site that you own, yourself, to build a list.

    Just my perspective.

      Well, thats what I SHOULD be doing I know, but after blowing $100 dollars on crappily supported hosting and a membership plugin that has problems as well, I dont feel I should be spending any more money until I start to see some returns. I figure setting up a few affiliate pages and driving some traffic towards THOSE should give me some money to go about getting hosting from a better hosting company like go daddy or hostgator.

        Well ...

        If money's an issue, why not set up the affiliate/money-pages you want on the free hosting at Byethost.com, then? It's the same as paid-for hosting, and when you make a few $$ you can upgrade to Byethost's paid-for hosting if you want to. Their free hosting is reliable, well-established, advertising-free, doesn't look like free hosting and has been used successfully by some marketers for years. That way, it's your own site and you own it, rather than using Squidoo for a money-site, which very many Warriors will attest to being a "less than optimal" plan, to put it politely.

        It may do - good luck. I hear you about Hostgator. For future reference, the general consensus of opinion among Warriors (every time it's discussed, which is often) is certainly that GoDaddy hosting should be avoided like the plague. "Nightmare City".

          "Less than optimal", what a polite way to phrase that thought.

          If you really want to use a free host, bytehost sounds good. And Blogger, does not have competing ads all over it like Squidoo.

          On Squidoo it is really hard to see the link that you want your visitors to see.

            Yeah! I used also byethost a free hosting. May be when it comes to free hosting, I feel like not complete rather than paid hosting services. But anyway byethost it is really cool.

            By the way I have a byethost then I wonder also they suspend my account. I just run off to the internet cafe and sign up for another account. Byethost won't allow multiple sign-ups.

            But anyway, Its pretty cool its free but no cpanel options for free hosting services.

            Just search in youtube they will give you instruction on how to incorporate your wordpress blog.

            Anyway, nice article in here!

              I also use squidoo.

              The nice thing about squidoo, is you can syndicate your rss feed.

              Rss feed also is the one way to generate seo traffic.

              Every time your rss feed updates, there is a chance that the
              search engine spider eat all up your text base link.

              It's also another way to generate traffic using squidoo.

              And doesn't mean I have to ignore some of the advantages about web2.0 sites.
