    Same way you promote any site by getting traffic. You find out who your target audience is (demographics, age, country, interests and so on) then where they hang out and promote to them.

      Yeah nowadays forums often don't even let you have a sig with an link to your website. Even if you add value to the forum and just want it in your sig, even if you don't spam the forum constantly. Which I understand but it makes IM harder.

    Some people recommend creating a private blog network with high PR domains. It sounds like it would involve quite a lot of setup work, but could be the best option overall.

      Here's a tip for evaluating any advice you get on a public forum...

      Does the person giving the advice have a commercial motive for giving it? In other words, does the person recommending SEO offer SEO products and advice? Does the person recommending against SEO sell an alternative?

      Doing so does not automatically disqualify their advice, but it should bump the sensitivity on your BS meter up a notch...

      Clearly there's no such thing as a "high PR domain": domains don't have page ranks.

      Only pages have page ranks.

      And that's why it wouldn't work too well: a PR-0 backlink on a website whose own home page happens to have a high page rank (such as one at Yahoo, or Ezine Articles) is still a PR-0 backlink.

      No differently from all the ways in which one might promote any other kind of website.

      Personally, I'd advise you not to put time and effort into trying to attract "organic SERP's" traffic, for two main reasons: first, it's very precarious and makes your business Google-dependent, and any business that's Google-dependent is no more than one algorithm-change away from a potential accident (or even a potential disaster), as so many Warriors have been finding out over the last year or two, some of them to their very great cost; secondly, for me, search engine traffic has been uniformly the worst-converting traffic out of everything I've ever tried in 8 entirely different niches over the whole of the last 4 years - search engine visitors to all my websites typically stay the least time, view the fewest pages, opt in the least often and actually buy anything by far the least often. I admit I do get tons of search engine traffic to all my main sites (because high rankings for multiple keywords happen to be a minor side-benefit of the main targeted traffic-generation method I use to build my business) but I'd certainly hate to have to make a living just from that traffic.

        I think the private blog networks you refer to are ones which are either selling links to the public or not setup properly.

        So is buying high PR domains opposed to new domains with no page rank pointless then? Many people swear by the improved ranking they get by buying existing high PR domains.

          The truth doesn't emerge very often, partly because the voice of promotion is always louder and more emphatic than the voice of reason, and partly because a lot of people have taken their "information" from the Urban Myth School of Internet Marketing.

          If you think about it, it's fairly obvious, though: page ranks are a feature of pages, not of websites or domains.

          What people normally mean, when they post in an online forum, by the words "high PR domain", is actually "a website whose own home page has a high PR." That's fine if you're getting your backlink on its own home page. (Though even then, the linkjuice is in inverse proportion to the number of links appearing on that page, of course, as always - and page ranks are temporary, if not maintained). But if it isn't, the fact that you have a backlink on a PR-0 page of a non-context-relevant site whose own home page happens to have a high page rank isn't much good to you, is it? Nobody imagines that they're getting a "high PR backlink" from an article in Ezine Articles, do they? But EZA's own home page happens to be PR-6. That doesn't make all my article backlinks there worth anything, though - nor anyone else's!

          A PR-0 backlink is a PR-0 backlink.

          There's a whole industry of backlink sellers "out there" (and some of them are "in here", too) promoting "backlinks from high-PR sites", hoping that their potential customers won't realise that there's no such thing as a "high PR website". The page rank of backlinks is the page rank of the page on which they appear. It's not much more complicated than that. Websites don't "have page ranks": only pages have page ranks.

          Their own home pages are worth something to relevant backlinks appearing on that page. If they maintain the page rank! (Not that search engine traffic is worth very much anyway. I certainly wouldn't want to have to make a living from it. Would you?).

          People who are somehow incentivized (financially or even emotionally, which is sometimes harder to identify) to say that, say that. Many people swear that they get something from all sorts of nonsense based only on very fundamental misunderstandings. Sorry, but it's true.

            Page Rank is an alogrithm developed to analyze links not website content...named after Larry Page who created the algorithm.

              Not quite, Joe: that "theory" was originally a joke started off by a couple of Google employees, who wanted to see how far they could "spread the rumor" and had a bet between themselves about whether they could get it taken seriously in Wiki and not removed. Or so various Google staff have subsequently explained in interviews. There's even a link in another thread, here, to a little Google video in which they "come clean" about it. Sorry to make such an "interesting" perspective slightly anticlimactic, after all, but page ranks apply to pages.

                "PageRank is a global ranking of all web pages regardless of their content, based solely on their location in the Web's graph structure."

                PageRank 1999 Stanford

                Yes, the pages are what is given the rank but it has nothing to do with the content on that page.

          You'll get some benefit from content on the home page until Google recalculates the PR and devalues it because the content that earned the ranking is no longer there.

          Most of those people have a financial and/or emotional investment in swearing by the tactic...

            PR is based on backlinks not content. It's always been that way. I don't know where people get this stuff.

            The only time PR can be affected by a factor other than backlinks, is if the site is deindexed. Even then, if the site was deindexed because it was down, the PR will return once the site is back up and crawled again by Google (unless it has been down for some time and lost backlinks).

            Hmmm seems to be a basic misunderstanding here about what Page Rank is and does.

            As I mentioned in my earlier reply to Alexa's post: PageRank is an algorithm developed by Larry Page of Google to analyze links...not content.

            It has nothing to do with the content on your websites pages but instead is analyzing your domains backlinks and structure to determine if your domain is worthy of a Larry "Page" Rank.

            I can build a site and obtain a Page Rank of at least "1" in what I consider a short time with nothing more than a squeeze page...and yes....all naturally.

          Plenty of forums allow sigs. I know because I use dozens of forums in different niches to drive traffic to my sites.

          It's not limited to forums though. Your target audience can be found elsewhere.

          Blogs (blog commenting and guest posting)
          List building (building your own list)
          Reddit (find a sub-reddit for your niche)
          Article syndication (directories and blogs)
          Video marketing (YT, Vimeo etc)
          Banner Ads (on relevant blogs & forums)
          PPC (Google, Bing, others)
          Q&A Sites (Yahoo Answers, Quora, Ask.com)
          Solo Ads (from solo ad vendors or contacting sites / vendors with lists)
          Social media (FB, Twitter, G+, Pinterest, Tumblr etc)
          ETC ETC ETC

          Use Google Alerts (or Buzz Bundle if you don't mind spending money to do things quicker) to find blog & forum posts and social media mentions of your keyword then reply with a message and a link, works wonders.

          SEO is slow and unpredictable. Paid traffic is much quicker and reliable. Can be scaled up indefinitely.

            Unless you're extremely lucky or have an untapped paid traffic source (rare these days), get ready to spend a lot of money testing before you're in the green. Then again, many campaigns simply aren't profitable and will never be in the green.

            Once you reach a positive ROI, then you still have to deal with competition jumping in and causing the bids/prices to go up, the traffic source changing their TOS, and the campaign simply dying out.

            For these reasons, paid traffic is not reliable (certainly not long-term). Also, each paid traffic source is a different ball game.

            Both paid traffic and SEO have their pros and cons. This is why I like to diversify and use both.

    doesn't matter actually what kinda site it is - you promote all sites in the same way.
    you don't need to make a difference between amazon and other sites.
    however, i´d say, make sure you have 2 call of actions when you do a product review - one in the middle, one at the end and don't forget to add amazon affiliate links to your images ;-)

      You're right. Which is why I said that having a product in the same area as the advice offered does not disqualify that advice. One just has to factor any profit motive into the evaluation and then make their decision. You have to evaluate WHY the person is giving a bit of advice - is it to be helpful or is it to generate a click on a sig link, for example.

      Truth is, even the well-intentioned can develop blinders when it comes to 'their' preferred methods.

    Try using these tactics and I believe they will work for you


    1. Try using unique web pages to promote each separate product you are marketing. Do not lump all of it together just to save some money on web hosting. It is best to have a site focusing on each and every product and nothing more.

    Always include product reviews on the website so visitors will have an initial understanding on what the product can do to those who buys them. Also include testimonials from users who have already tried the product.

    You can also write articles highlighting the uses of the product and include them on the website as an additional page. Make the pages attractive compelling and include calls to act on the information. Each headline should attract the readers to try and read more, even contact you. Highlight your special points. This will help your readers to learn what the page is about and will want to find out more.



    2. Offer free reports to your readers. If possible position them at the very top side of your page so it they simply cannot be missed. Try to create autoresponder messages that will be mailed to those who input their personal information into your sign up box.


    Only two things can possibly happen with the web page alone: closed sale or the prospect leaving the page and never return again. By placing useful information into their inboxes at certain specified period, you will remind them of the product they thought they want later and will find out that the sale is closed. Be sure that the content is directed toward specific reasons to buy the product. Do not make it sound like a sales pitch.


    Focus on important points like how your product can make life and things easier and more enjoyable. Include compelling subject lines in the email.

    3. Get the kind of traffic that is targeted to your product. Just think, if the person who visited your website has no interest whatsoever in what you are offering, they will be among those who move on and never come back. Write articles for publication in e-zines and e-reports. This way you can locate publications that is focusing on your target customers and what you have put up might just grab their interest.



    Try to write a minimum of 2 articles per week, with at least 300-600 words in length. By continuously writing and maintaining these articles you can generate as many as 100 targeted readers to your site in a day.

    Always remember that only 1 out of 100 people are likely to buy your product or get your services. If you can generate as much as 1,000 targeted hits for your website in a day, that means you can made 10 sales based on the average statistic.


    The tactics given above does not really sound very difficult to do, if you think about it. It just requires a little time and an action plan on your part.


    Try to use these tips for several affiliate marketing programs. You can end up maintaining a good source of income and surviving in this business that not all marketers can do.


    My 2 cents

    I think you're right on with that one. In general, not depending too much on any one thing, any source of income, any monetization strat, etc. is a good idea! Alexa, so how do you get traffic to your website?

    uzomaeze, Thanks for your advice! Very in depth and I will re-read and look over again.

    one stuff at a time

    example Juice extractors blog

    and focus on it, have a budget to direct traffic

    articles

    seo

    reviews

    etc etc

      Yes, PR is based on backlinks. But not on just the number of backlinks, contrary to what most sellers of bulk backlinks will tell you.

      Relevance of those backlinks also plays a part. Quality of those backlinks plays a part.

      If someone buys a PR4 domain with copious backlinks, they'll enjoy the PR until the site is crawled and recalculated. If the majority of the backlinks are the types that Google has devalued (links from link farms, links from unrelated sites, etc.) then those links will no longer count and the PR goes down. It may not show in the toolbar reading, but it does go down. It has to.

      In addition, PR is a logarithmic scale. In other words, it's based on powers of ten. A "PR4" page could rank anywhere from 10^4 (10,000) to 10^5-1 (99,999). In other words, it could lose almost 90% of its "PR power" and it would never show on the published PR, even if those numbers were kept up to date.

        I completely agree with you on this, and I wish more members here would realize the importance of the quality of the backlinks. I see way too many people focusing on quantity over quality when it comes to backlinks.

        Also, a lot more comes in to play than just PR when it comes to the quality of the backlink. Relevance, outbound links, and IP diversity need to be taken into consideration. PA/DA are often good indicators too.

        You are right about Google constantly updating the PR regardless of what the toolbar is showing. This seems to be another fact that many of those new to SEO do not realize.

          It's a general solid idea. Less is more.

  • Hm well now I'm a bit confused. A lot of ideas and arguments coming in, some of which contradict each other? And George Bush?? Well, thanks guys, seriously. Thanks for your input.

    The whole Google Algorithm is confusing as hell to me. And PR is a bit confusing.... I guess maybe article marketing does make most sense for promoting?

    I prefer using Facebook ads. Just make sure that the affiliate website is allowed to be promoted on Facebook. There are affiliate websites that are not allowed in Facebook (e.g. Clickbank).

    SEO in Google and Bing is how I get the majority of traffic to my Amazon affiliate sites.

    The key is to choose low competition niches, write good product reviews and find long tail keywords.

    I normally promote by:

    1. Posting ads via classified ad sites like Adlandpro, Adpost, Backpage, Classified Ads, Craiglist, Gumtree and US Free Ads. Though there are many others, these sites give me the highest ROI

    2. Posting ads and creating fanpages via Facebook

    3. Create PDF catalogues and submit to PDF sites like Issuu, Scribd and Slideshare

    4. Create Youtube videos reviewing the products I promote in my affiliate site.

    Hope this helps.
