This might be a "noobie" question, but for affiliate marketers that are starting out I've heard that 2 effective ways to getting traffics is article marketing and SEO. So I understand writing articles ands submitting them part, but as of SEO, even if you tried your best getting as much content, etc. in your website, wouldn't it be hard to get to the number one page of Google? I would imagine it would be hard to get to the 50th page on Google since there are a million pages on same niches... this is a little discouraging to me. I guess there isn't really question here; I just want your opinions.
