Earning money is always enjoyable. Especially when it’s all yours to keep. Nothing says thank you for a job well done than 100% of the earnings going to you. When you have a regular job with a company and a boss then you are paid for your time. And actually, you’re probably earning a lot less than your actual worth. Think of it, if you earned your actual worth then the company wouldn’t make a profit.
Time is the most undervalued resource there is. You can give your time to a company, or you can use your time for yourself. This is what earning money as an affiliate marketer essentially is. Utilizing your time to earn the best way that you can. All the money you earn will be yours, rather…
Anyone looking to get more visitors and views on a website must know more about SEO. And this SEO(Search Engine Optimization) has got multiple methods of approaching it.
In this post, we want to optimize a website through quality content. What concepts do you use when writing on your blog feed and pages? Well, I will show you how to write for SEO.
How to write for SEO on websites.
Search engines look at quality content when ranking pages but you need to rank your whole website. How can you do that? Just follow these tips.
Choice of words.
Some times, writing gets exiting. During that time, even the sentences you write tend to get longer. The one thing you need to know is sentences have got to be short with approximately fifteen words maximum. Keep them short and meaningful.
Choice of words
The choice of words used in your sentences matters somehow in a way that when simple words are used, you will improve readability on your website. You have to use simple but strong words.
Just like any other forms of writing, your blog content should be presented in short paragraphs. This will help search engines to easily identify keywords in each paragraph. The length of each paragraph is five to six sentences.
The passive voice has to be maintained to 10%. Try to use sentences which are less passive. This helps to make the written texts appear intonational thus improving. understanding.
Write sentences consecutively to layout content perfectly and make it attracting. Some times, you need to use a variety of sentences for example sentences with; question marks, full stops, exclamation marks, semicolons and full colons.
Transition words help to change from one topic to another in between paragraphs. Create an overflow of your content by applying more transitional words. Enable your readers to better understand what you write.
Lastly, working upon subheadings is ideal. In a post like this one, subheadings would be most preferably ranked by search engines because that’s what they look at first before crawling the inner content. Always consider writing with subheadings where necessary, following the order of header arrangement.
What No One Tells You About Broken Links- written by Debby Winter.
Have you ever clicked a link just to find a broken page? Or maybe you were taken to a page that didn’t quiet provide the information you were looking for? If you are running a blog or website the quality of your links are key to quality per se, and links will also affect organic rankings in the search engines. It will be clear that both links and content are the most important part of SEO, and we want to take extra care of our links because when broken they have a damaging effect.
Links contain the essence of the internet and as such we should treat them with respect.
It is true that links are the very building blocks of the internet. You may not have quiet realized exactly how important a properly labelled link is until you meditate on the concept for some time. If links are labeled the wrong way they have zero value, or worse, they could even do damage. If you are someone who always tries to link the right way than you probably don’t have to worry, but if you know you have links on your site that have as only purpose to inflate the link juice of one page than you might be in trouble. You are probably aware that this is often done for SEO purposes but it can have awful effects.
Are there other linking factors that affect my ranking?
Yes there are. Search engines know that links are the essential connection on which the internet depends in order to be able to provide you with information. If you provide wrong labels, or in other words if you label your links with improper text, than you may be punished for that. At best the search engines will ignore the link text, but if you run a website that keeps adding irrelevant anchor text than it is likely that you will be dropped by the algorithm. When this happens it is likely easiest to start over from scratch and follow Google best practices for SEO.
Where to start if you are unsure about the quality of your links?
For years now I have been using a free software called Xenu Link Sleuth. It can be downloaded for free from the internet and it will serve to generate detailed error reports that will give you in-depth insight on the situation. The program is especially useful if you run online forums that contain user generated content, or if you allow people to post their link in the comment section of your blog. When time goes by some links may expire or become outdated, and this can as such damage your rankings. If you are not sure how to use the problem or how to fix the links you may wish to consult an SEO expert.
Should I include or remove punctuation at the end of a link?
If you are linking to a website URL you always want to remove the punctuation at the end because it may inadvertently be added which will cause an error. Instead of writing “wordpress.org?” you always want to add a pause and write “wordpress.org ?” Remember, to free a website from error is to optimize it for the search engines. Good spelling and good grammar is important, but when it comes to functionality and SEO you sometimes have to make an exemption.
If everything else fails…
Sometimes someone sends you a link and it just doesn’t work. If you can’t figure out how to fix it then your best chance is to Google the link. If there is a spelling error it is at this point that this will be revealed to you. Also, if you have someone write a guest article you always want to check all the links before posting. Make sure to Google part of it to see if it isn’t duplicate content since this is harmful for your site. Never submit the entire article to article checkers as there are some checkers out there that will copy your article and publish it before you can.
Well folks that’s all, I hope you enjoyed this article on broken links and that you learned something new about the inner mechanics of the internet and SEO. Take care and stay home, it’s nice to know that in uncertain times like this people are reaching out to each other here on WordPress. If you have any questions or if you like a free website audit feel free to contact me.
Welcome to this post where I am going to explain a few tips for an affiliate marketer or any website owner to increase engagement on their webpages. So if you are looking to expand your business but can’t struggle for SEO, I can help.
Most people tend to choose alternative ways for obtaining views, leads, and engagement. I can either be through advertising or by using BOT services. This helps in some way but should you really spend much on these services? These are not very beneficial.
What you should do instead is, to focus on search engine optimisation(SEO) to build a permanent rank that will bring in more and more visitors every single minute of your life.. In the long run, you should be able to rank your pages even if they are freshly new.
For lead generation, the appearance of your pages, buttons and the content all together are responsible for your returning visitor and your onetime visitor. Beautiful images on your blog/website, please a visitor if they are appealing to them. This can be a genesis of visitor attraction on your site.
The algorithms for Google do not look at which site is not ranking in order to rank it but they simply look at keywords that people type into the search tab to find your content.
Also, consider building better quality pages that will easily rank on Google.
What should webpages on a website look like?
The layout and appearance of your affiliate website is the first thing to attract visitors to it. Depending on how you design it, be mindful of SEO performance with headers.
Headers; H1-H6 have to be laid out in their respective order on all your web pages. The H1 header is always the biggest and H6 is the smallest. I am making this emphasis to help you understand that headers help to improve page quality hence good ranking.
I am so flabbergasteded as I write this post. Great things come at the right time, in a right manner, to the right people. I never expected this but surprisingly, I saw a comment drop in to my comment section . It was an award nomination alert.

I realised that these people, a majority of them were from China and I don’t know whether they are still living or not.

What are the new happenings this year in the affiliate marketing business? For years, it has existed and is still continuing to be the number one and almost the simplest way to earn online relative to a 9-5 job or even beyond that. The lovable bit of it is that; for website owners, they have a previledge to benefit in many ways. They can earn from blogging and also earn from affiliate links in one place.
Affiliate marketing is something which is diverse. It’s a business of its own in fact, without it, most businesses would not be sounding now.
And it’s disappointing to announce that Niji affiliates recently closed it’s affiliate programe and it’s so sad for the Niji affiliates that it nolonger has that employment opportunity. Therefore, if you had been a Nijji affiliate, it’s high time you declined all your links to that website because they will surely do nothing in your site.”
As far as affiliate marketing is concerned, the day to day life has it’s own effect on this business. People buy products and services not because they are forced to but because they may have gotten attracted to a product by it’s appearence or they probably have an issue to fix which requires that particular product. Generally, wants are what we normally buy. When these products are bought, they will be used and the consumer is able to give a review about that particular product. They can either tell the good, bad or both of the above, about the product or service they have used.
This is a good practice as it helps to bring out the truth about a particular product. So, if I want to buy it, I will first find reviews from people who’ve already used it before, then go ahead to purchase it. Google helps alot when it comes to searching for exactly what you want to know.
These days most affiliate programs require you who is their partner, to review their products after they have been sold through your link and short of that, no payment will be made to you. This is certainly insane. I mean it just makes one to loose hope. And this is one of the factors which you may have to consider when choosing a good affiliate program.
Should you consider promoting softwares or want to buy one, the highest commissioning products in the market now are ( Digital goods).There is only one good affiliate website that I know has the best affiliate program. You get 50% commissions on every successful conversion.

Hey! everyone, Happy New Year once again I know we are still in January so, the year it still brand new.
I haven’t published anything before, since the year started and if not because I had been a little tied up, may be we would have gone far but I want to extend my sincere gratitude to everybody for making it again to this new level.
Just to say, a word of appreciation and to congratulate Jeonlin Affiliates for achieving 1000 likes and 200 plus follows. Thank you so much Gifted50, elganspo, The Godly Chic Diaries, Brothers Campfire, Sheree, Francisco Bravo Cabrera, Affiliate Maestro, Pablo, Internet Marketing, Operation Super Affiliate, Like Internet Marketing.com, Passive64, Vilma, richdailyincomelab, astijake John and many others. I can’t really mention everybody but I’m so greatful for you all.
You are the Giants behind this achievement thank you so much.
One of the most emphasised ways to increase your traffic and engagement is by visiting and commenting on other blogs, publishing regularly, publishing to other blogs as a guest (guest blogging) and visiting forrums. It’s very important to observe these tips and trust me when you do all of them, you will be amazed. It perfectly works for all blog types.
It wasn’t through my own efforts but yours too, that Jeonlin Affiliates has today archived these figures.
In my next post I will be discussing new affiliate marketing programs for 2020 and one of the key factors will be running campaigns.
This year, I will have lots of things to do as far as this blog/website is concerned and there is even no time. How I wish I started blogging when I was fifteen. Any way those are just wishes and bygones so, I will let them be. But I promise you that there is more and more information that I need to share with you despite the limited time that I have for this blog. I hope that this year, I give more of my time to blogging.
Do you realize that most of your online visitors actually just read and leave? Your affiliate marketing business need to make conversions but how do you fulfill that need? Is there any way to go about it to ensure good results as an online affiliate ?
Yes, that’s very obvious and honestly, you can’t expect a conversion immediately after setting up your links. It could happen but very uncommon right? Yeah!, What you should count on is something a little bit unique, catchy, convincing and absolutely working to make visitors buy from the links. There is a multilevel marketing strategy strategy- Landing page creation.
Every effort made to market a product involves hard work, patience and technique since it usually takes time for your traffic to turn into customers and subscribers.
That’s when landing pages will be your next option. A landing page is also called a lead capture page, static page or destination page. It is a web page that appears as an optimized search result when a promotion, a marketing email or an online advertisement is clicked on.
A landing page is mainly to convert site visitors into leads or sales and this is a great strategy to getting conversions so easily with your affiliate website.
Landing pages can be micro websites or single pages within an organisation website. The site visitors get to these page, after clicking on a call to action button say;- “Download our news letter.” It can be an image or a line of texts running through. The page will contain a form that will help you to collect visitor’s personal information and it will be stored in the lead Page’s database.
So, a visitor will be filing out a form knowing that the information they are about to access is so valuable to them.
Landing pages are far more different from a home page because they function differently depending on their purposes therefore, a landing page does not appear any where in your site. I can’t be accessed so easily unless one clicks on a set call to action button.
The idea of landing pages really works better but takes time to build it especially a data form.
This was my ambition two months ago “to reach 100 follows on this blog” and finally, It has made it. This is why I thank everyone for progressing to this achievement it is you who as made it and I hope and pray for another great one. Thank you very much.
How to find a key work that will rank on your website at a low competitor rate. One of the best ways to lift your traffic levels is the SEO right? Behind email marketing and social media advertising, keyword optimization could be the cheapest strategy to ranking and getting on Google’s front page.
This is what you need to do in order to go about the issue of low traffic experiences and also save money that would be spent to run ads Finding a keyword. There are a few steps you may have to follow when carrying out this research and I will be explaining them below.
Identify relevant topics.
The very first step that you will take is getting to know a few topics that you know people may be searching for. These topics can be picked from your page titles, headings and sub-headings. This will help you to figure out what to rank for.
Find niche keywords
Use the search keyword tools to research related terms for your phrases. There are a number of keyword tools which are purposesly designed for this task. They identify a keyword, it’s volume ranking and metrics.
Refine your niche keyword list.
At this level, It’s time to put your searched keywords all together. Begin to study them one by one whole looking at factors like; keyword relevancy, volume, ranking etc. While you do this phrase by phrase, you will be sorting them according to the factors mentioned above and you will be able to get those that have low ranking or high rankings on search engines.
Determine how competitive a keyword is.
You will then have to determine the ability of your keywords that you have selected. Find out the competitor keywords for the one you have chosen. Possibly, those phrases that are related or ones that are the same as yours, and delete those that have high competition rates. You can repeat this process as many times as possible untill you get your preferred keyword.
Does your affiliate website require any marketing technique? Surely it does. In fact, it deserves to carry out email marketing. You may want to use other marketing strategies avoiding email. You could be wrong. How can a marketing tool that has existed for decades be left out? Are you aware of the new internet marketing techniques that have taken peoples minds making them ignore email yet in actual sense they are not very effective?
Well, let me tell you a little about it. Email marketing is very popular and for that matter, it beats the SEO technique(search engines) by 15% and social media by 25% since it’s population is approximately 85% that’s already a huge difference to identify it as the number one ranked strategy. While SEO may not be a success for every website, email can be a successful budget though you might have to invest a little.
The reason why email beats SEO and social media is; with it, you communicate directly to a customer’s inbox in a professional manner and to the right audience. The right audience is that list of people who have liked what you offer and have subscribed and for your services.
What is most relevant of email marketing is having an email list. If you have about 100 people on the list, it’s a good number to start from.
Email marketing actually involves sending commercial messages to a large audience but in most cases, even sending one message to one person is email marketing. It is meant to create awareness about what they offer, and lift sales for brands. Bearing in mind that an affiliate website can also bee a brand of its own, you can create an email list from the people who subscribe to your website and start with them. At some point, email marketing helps to transform website visitors into real buyers but if you don’t follow them up, they can never come back to your website you will have lost them forever.
You can use the email marketing strategy to do so many things on your website say winning back customers. Most times when a person purchases a product from your link, they may take long without coming back to your site. This is when you will have to send them a win-back message asking them to try out something else that is available on your site and may interest them.
The win-back technique is very simple to apply with niche sites. A niche site allows persons to create and manage their accounts within that particular website as they receive services from it. Should anyone have an account with the nitche site take long without opening it, the nitche admin will have to look into the matter and at the end, will send a win back a message to the account owner to remind them of their account. The win-back message, of course, has to contain some attractive information that can really prompt someone to visit the website once again.
This is definitely an option that you should use because honestly, I don’t think it has any pros except its costs but even though, how much will it cost you to run one campaign and how much would you benefit from a campaign. You will have impressed so many people, created awareness and generated lots of traffic.
Forget about social media for now if your website is potential and focus on email marketing. For social media may be costly and surely it may not be a convenient place for some people as they will be required to observe the Facebook, Twitter, etc, terms & conditions and advertising policies.
So in conclusion, I recommend email marketing as number one for your affiliate business. However, if you can opt for external ad campaigns to boost your website’s traffic, it also works but on a 25%rate remember because email takes 85%.

Today marks the first day in the month of December. It is a day I was meant to celebrate thirty days on Jeonlin Affiliates. It hasn’t been easy running this site from the very start since last month on this day, but because you gave me courage and charisma to do what it took to reach this level, I am grateful for you are a wonderful friend.
I write with gratitude and honor of you my great friend. Thank you for supporting my blog I know it takes a lot of time visiting other blogs but you have always kept a constant interest and that has given me hope to work even more harder for better results. I just clocked 7000 impressions today. This records were shown as noted from the previous month of November and I hope it will go higher than this in this month.
Thank you for following my blog, thanks for the likes and comments and I say continue with the same spirit because that’s what we are.
I want to share a little story about me. How I started the to join the blogging commmunity. I will be taking about some challenges that I faced in the begining as well.
WordAds is an advertising platform for WordPress sites. When I created my first blog, I thought I had ventured in to something so so difficult because it was my very first site. I never knew what to do with the available editing tools on my site. I was given access to only a few tools at a time and thought that at some point, I would delete and forget of it which I eventually did. I had no regrets deleting it because I had not invested any money for it neither did I add any content because you know, I was totally a beginner. All this happened in the year 2016. I lost hope but didn’t give up yet.
In the year 2017-March, I decided to give it a nother trial,created a new site on a different platform that blew away my mind. This time, I had a unique experience on my WordPress website which is why I want to talk about it here.
When you create a website on WordPress, you have four price plans to choose from. There is a free personal(Basic plan), premum, Business and e-commerce plans The Free plan is number one on the list and this is what I dwelt on with my site for about a year. Throughout this period, I was busy learning how to blog meanwhile trying to create some good posts. It sounded unreal but also real some times. I began to go deeper in to learning how the whole WordPress systems works. That’s where I learnt about the other plans that I had left out. In fact with the free plan on WordPress, I was only making fan and wasn’t so serious about blogging but here is what made me to stand on my feet with much determination. ‘ The wordAds together with it’s features.’
As a beginner, I really had little belief that I would make money from a blog so, one day I decided to ask google ‘how do people earn from blogs?‘ From what I read on Google’s first result, I was able to know that blogs are paid for hosting adverts and campaigns of companies and payment is according to pay per click(PPC) which is the commonest method of payment for blogs.
It was high time I began to think of buying a domain name for my site, and get it hosted. That was a huge budget for me when looked at some hosting prices from other web hosts. When compared with the WordPress plans, I found it affordable to pay for both a domain and hosting on WordPress. It had simplified everything but I didn’t know. I never knew that WordPress had reduced domain and hosting costs for their clients. I upgraded to the basic plan which came with no plugins. Now to be sure of what I am talking about, let’s take a quick review of these plans below for WordPress site.
As you can see the first plan (personal) is the cheapest with a small amount of $4 per month with a discount which is best for personal use. I began from here. But because of the objective that I had that was; earning from adds, this plan could not make me money for ads as it didn’t have any plugin that I could use in order to earn. The premium plan was my next option- $8 per month but there is a discount. I added just a few bucks to top up my initial payment on the personal plan and here I am. I came to discover new features in this plan though some were also in personal plan there were some additions. This plan works best for Freelancers and bloggers.
My experience with WordAds
Now as I mentioned earlier on, the personal plan doesn’t come with jetpack software options. Premium comes with already installed jetpack.
Now jetpack is a software which manages everything happening in your site, protects it from scam and manages the plugins instalation. WordPress premium plan comes with the jetpack system installed for you. You can add other plugins like Yoast SEO, Woocommerce and Google analytics for WordPress but these can only be applied in the business and e-commerce plans.
But both of the three plans above use word Ads to generate income. However, jetpack users are required to be on a premium plan($8/month – $99/year) to use WordAds. This plan is the very affordable no other website sells hosting services at such a low price. Get started with Woocommerce plugin monetize your website easily.
I will be talking in detail, the WordAds platform and how it actually works, in my next post.
How well do you know these two? Did you know that there is yet a nother way through which you can multiply your earnings besides your 9-5 job? I have been talking about affiliate marketing all along as a major method to generate income and from my own point of view, yes it really is because it’s more popular every where. It has become almost everyone’s point of interest . Now there are a few people who have actually decided to do both of the projects above and they are doing very well. It’s possible you too can do them so long as you have ample time. There are a few differences between Freelancing and Affiliate marketing despite the fact that they are all online work from home Jobs. So, I am going to elaborate more about them and we want to see their similarities. Both affiliate marketing and freelancing have the good side and the bad side.Therefore, in the end we shall be able to identify both the good side and the bad side of each of them.
What is so common about thetwo?(similarities)
Both are work from home jobs. Both Affiliate marketers and Freelancers may not need to have an office in order to carry out what they are supposed to but their employers may be in office.
No specific qualifications may be required for one to participate in these jobs.
They are entirely free to join and start working. There is no appointment and no retirement.
You have unlimited time for work so, work at your own pace and no body will moderate you for what you do.
Both are flexible you can do them alongside other things.
What differenciates affiliate marketing from freelancing( comparison )?
The differences between the two kinds of online jobs above may also be their merits or demerits.
Affiliate marketing is a self employment directory because once you have authority to promote or refer people to a certain company whatsoever,it is your choice whether to do the promotions and drive traffic or not. Everything is in your hands take personal decisions pertaining your private job. Where as Freelancing is not private in any way, because as a freelancer, you only work on other people’s projects to be paid.
As an affiliate, you don’t need any past experience all you need is an email address in order to register and start promoting on the straight away even though you are just a beginner unlike freelancing. You need to be good at one or more skills to bid on available projects short of that, you may not be able to find what you can do.
Affiliate marketing is permanent once you have joined a company or business as a partner as long as the company continues to exist. This means a lifetime job and it’s possible to gain experience and then make it your official job for life while in freelancing, you will either get a permanent job or work on contracts which expire after a given period of time as agreed.
In the field of affiliate marketing, payments are assured as long as you make a complete conversion. Freelancer jobs may not have assured payments for employees since most freelancing sites have a policy that says, if an employer is not sarticified with what his/her employee is doing, he or she may decide not to pay them until they perfect their work.
Earning is through commissions and bonuses which are at times recurting for affiliates while for Freelancers, earning is through your effort. You earn for only what you worked for. There are no bunuses in this case.
Affiliate marketing involves lead generation through advertising which really takes more time while freelancing may not need any of those except, in case one is given a job that involves attracting organic traffic.
As an affiliate marketer, jobs are readily available compared to freelancing where by you have to bid on a project by sending a proposal to the employer and wait to be chosen if there are many applicants which is also time consuming.
Higher conversions and commisions are what we want. They are a reason why we do affiliate marketing.

This guide will show you exactly how to build a website for your affiliate marketing program and make more earnings with it. Follow the steps below.
Create an account at WordPress.com if you are new to the website.
After creating an account, you will automatically be logged in. Choose the kind of site you are building from the suggestions list below.
Add a topic or choose one from the drop down list eg; cameras and photography or fashion or digital marketing, and click on (continue)button from the right hand side of the screen. At this level, you can scroll down to see how your website will look.
Add a business name eg; Webdesigner, then click on the (continue) button to head over to the next step.
It’s time to give your site an address. An address is a keyword that people can type in to a web browser so as to find your website. Enter a name or keyword that you want to be your domain name eg; WordPress.com, WordPress.ug.com etc. Normally when doing this, the system will give you sugestions for the keyword that you type because at times a keyword that you choose may be already existing as a domain in another website. Once this happens,the system will suggest to you a related domain name.
These suggestions come with different extensions and because of the variance in extensions, even their costs do vary. The ‘.com’ extension is most commonly used so, for this reason, it tends to cost more money than other extensions. You can change a given extension from the (more extensions) tab at the bottom.
There is always one free-domain-name option for users who are not yet sure whether to buy a custom domain or not. One is also allowed to map a domain that they already bought from a different domain issuer, to WordPress. Take for example I can map a domain that I own at Bluehost.com to my WordPress website.
Click on (start with a business plan) to buy a custom domain name for your site which will look like this; WordPress.com or WordPress.online depending on the extension you chose earlier on.WordPress like any other CMS, gives it’s users an advantage of creating a free website without a custom domain. A free domain on WordPress will contain an extension-wordpress.com. eg; if your web address is to be http://www.designer.com, instead of this address, on a free plan, you will have it as; designer.wordpress.com.However, you can buy a custom domain name and to replace the free one but the free domain can not be deleted because it’s permanent.
After you have bought a custom domain, you will be redirected to the WordPress’s website reader page. This is how it looks.

It is not mandatory to own a website for one to do affiliate marketing. This business is actually a tendency of people being subsidiaries of an organisation or company whatsoever, to give a hand in hikening the rate at which goods or services are sold. For that reason, companies don’t give any form of restriction concerning how and where they place their links but instead, they give their clients(affiliates) the freedom to bring customers using any method that they prefer one of which is through show casing products on an affiliate’s website. This is a common practice with experienced affiliate marketers.
Ideally, a website is a best place for showcasing a number of products in order to attain increased sales. You may need a well built website, beautifully designed for the kind of work that you will use it for. It takes one a few bucks to activate a website and get it running but you can also create a free web that you will share to your local community and they can access it locally without using web browsers.
