There's a lot of people out there building small, 5 or 6 post "sniper" style Wordpress blogs and monetizing them using Clickbank products.
Nothing wrong with that, but you could be leaving money on the table...
When you create a smaller Wordpress blog you're limiting the amount of keywords that blog will rank for in the search engines.
You will spend time building backlinks to the main domain in hopes of increasing your blog's ranking.
The number of backlinks pointing back to your domain matters and will increase the ranking of all your content in the search engines.
A lot of people think they build backlinks just to get the main domain of the blog ranking high for their main keyword. This is good, but you are also creating backlinks to get individual pages/posts ranked using the "authority" of your main domain.
If you've ever looked at a tool like Market Samurai one of the determining factors is the number of backlinks pointing to your main domain.
But if all the content you have on your blog is those 5 or 6 posts, and you have 5000 backlinks pointing back to your domain, you will only get traffic for a limited amount of keywords.
This basically wastes link juice that you could be using to get additional pages ranked high in the search engines.
A great way to scale things up would be to create more pages by reviewing Clickbank products. The new pages will usually receive good search engine positioning since they benefit from your domains "authority".
One thing that holds a lot of people back from doing this is that it may change the look and "feel" of their site.
The exclude pages Wordpress plugin can be used to hide specific new pages from your blogs navigation therefor not changing the look of your site.
Basically, the only thing seeing these pages are the search engines and the people coming in based on keywords they are searching for which would be Clickbank product name + review (or something similar).
You can take advantage of this little piece of knowledge 2 ways:
1) You can develop a content rich site, filled with useful information. When a person visits yourdomain.com all they will see are great articles (with maybe a link to a product review(s) under each post ) people will like the site and not think it's "spammy". When people like your site they will link to it or pass it around virally (Facebook - Twitter). Not to many people like "spammy" Clickbank review blogs.
But the minute they look for a product review for a Clickbank product your individual page with the review will appear in the search results because the individual page will have some "authority" thanks to the domain it's on.
So it's basically like making money on the back end.
2) If you're promoting one clickbank product such as "Mass Auto Traffic" and have a sniper style domain such as mass-traffic-review-bonus-best-great-not-scam-proof.com.
You can add additional "hidden" review pages for other Clickbank products related to traffic generation. (you will still have a relevant site in Google's eyes since it's still traffic generation related)
The next time a traffic generation product launches, you will have an advantage since you are using an already established domain with backlinks so all you have to do is create a new page in Wordpress and uncheck the "include page in navigation box".
You will be all set up to "snipe" the next launch with your ONE review page because that's all it take to make a sale.
Leave the page "as is", or you can build some backlinks to the ONE review page for the product to increase rankings even more. When you build links to one specific page on your site it's considered "deep linking". This will benefit your site as a whole.
Hope this post makes sense, it my not be ideal for newbies but those with a little experience will hopefully know what I'm talking about and put it to use.
Yes, this actually works...
