Want to make money online, really?
Here's what I do and it works.
- Search Clickbank.com for a niche that has at least 5-10 hot selling products (with gravity over 50, or 25 if it's a less popular niche - just make sure the sales page looks HOT and there is desperate crowds searching for solutions in that niche - forex is good, teeth whitening - not so much)
- Check the google keyword planner to see how many monthly phrases the products names get. Does the product name have over 200 searches per month? Good - it's a keeper.
- Find a hot with hot products? Good, buy a domain name related to that NICHE - not related to a product name. Get something that sounds authoritative, not SuperDuperRealProductReview.com - that just sounds silly and makes it quite obvious you're just trying to rank with a dumb looking domain name instead of the authority of your site.
- Contact EACH of the product owners via their affiliate pages and ask for a review copy of their product to review for your affiliate blog - you'll probably get responses from 50-75%
- Go to their affiliate pages and look for keyword ideas (many have keyword lists of KW's you can promote) and plug those into the google Keyword Planner (keywords related to the niche, NOT the product). If you can't find keywords there, start by typing in what YOU'D search for if you were looking for info in that niche (in the KW planner tool, again)
- Find 25-50 keywords that are searched for (world wide) MORE than 200 times per month - the more searches the better
- Download Traffic Travis FREE from Free SEO Software | The Best SEO Management Tool | Traffic Travis (non affiliate link) and plug your keywords 5 at a time into the SEO/Competition/ Keywords List and look for keywords that are medium difficulty or UNDER
- Rince and Repeat the process with Traffic Travis until you have 15-25 good keywords with over 200 searches per month and Medium or LESS difficulty.
- Go to iWriter : Article Writing Service | Get Content For Your Website, Cheap! and order 15-25 articles, 1 per keyword. ALWAYS use a 4 star writer and 500 words - you'll pay $5.50 per article and a tip if they write over. If you find a writer you like, use him as a favorite. If you find a writer you DON'T like, you can reject the article and ask for another one.
- While your articles are being written - start writing your own REVIEWS of the products you received access to. If you didn't get a response yet be patient - worse case scenario you might need to buy them. You want you review to BE REAL and show real SCREEN SHOTS from the members area and show people you took the time to review the product. Show them you've got it too and you're NOT just trying to sell it to them. (Bonus: Do a video review and post the video on youtube AND embed it in your blog)
- Moving on a few days later - you've got 5-10 reviews you've written, and 15-25 good articles on your niche. Set up a wordpress blog and plug your articles in, schedule them to post 1 per day for the next however many days. Optimize each post for SEO (if you don't know how, there are plenty of threads on here discussing this) DON'T just add the text and leave it like that, add images - add header tags, add bold and colored fonts. Make it look NICE. Ask yourself if you would read it. If you're un-sure, you probably need to make it look better.
- Use traffic travis and create a new project - add your domain AND all of your keywords. On the bottom RIGHT set TT to check the top 200 results (the default is 10). You can now check your websites rankings for the keywords, up to the first 200 results or 20 pages.
Anyways - I did a site like this that I started in Early December. I spent the first 1 1/2 months just adding articles - I added 50 that I had written for me (no I won't share my site). I also added the REVIEWS that I did - and am now making $250 a day JUST from this site consistently. I'm ranked on page 1 for multiple PRODUCT names in this niche and even product author names.
Let's see how many of you take action on this - and maybe I'll get into some simple linking stuff you can do for free, high PR links.
