8 Tips on Building Affilliate Websites

(photo thanks to Rogue Soul)

Against the advice of my last post, here’s a bullet point list of tips on how to build affiliate websites:

  1. Use a free site/blog platform. You can quickly and easily setup any new ones if you get shut down
  2. Don’t put adsense ads on your site. It gives people another place to click other than your (hopefully) higher paying affiliate links.
  3. Make a squidoo lens for each affiliate site. It helps bring traffic back and forth from squidoo to/from your affiliate site/blog. Key: Tag each item in the squidoo lens slightly different than the post you have on your blog/site.
  4. Use rssfeedsgenerator.com Use rss feeds to create content lists with a randomized number of items all pointing to your affiliate products.
  5. Use pingoat.com Use this to tell a ton of websites about your new site/blog.
  6. Use feedshark.brainbliss.com Another pinging service like pingoat
  7. Use the Submit’em now Firefox plugin A ton of RSS feed directories built in which builds a bunch of back links to your blog and squidoo lens.
  8. Post to your blog between 400-600 words in length. Talk about the niche you’re in.

    great post. Do you do a lot of affiliate marketing?

  2. Aaron says:

    btw, the feed shark isn’t working for me. Also, when I manually type in their domain there’s no website.

    The pingoat site looks really useful but it’s only in beta. I was able to submit one site but that’s it.

  3. nate says:

    Sorry about that Aaron. I just fixed that url for the feedshark site. That’s what I get for not double checking what I write.


  4. Aaron says:

    Just so you know that link doesn’t work either. It took me to a wikipedia page.

  5. Aaron says:

    You also have http typed 2x.

  6. nate says:

    Sorry about that. It’s been a rough day. I think it’s fixed now. :)

  7. Aaron says:

    So do you do a lot of affiliate marketing and or arbi?

  8. nate says:

    I do some, but not enough to make it my full time job… yet. :)
