Introduction


What is affiliate marketing?

In a nutshell, affiliate marketing is about sending traffic to a vendor’s site. The vendor will pay you a commission if the people you send to their site buy anything they may happen to be selling.

Amazon is one such vendor that has a very, very popular affiliate program.

Amazon - and its subsidiaries in several countries - will pay you commissions for sales you generate through your website. 

For this to happen, you will need to have a site ranking high in Google and other search engines. These high rankings will mean folks who are searching for products will see your website in Google's search results, click on your website, read your article - and then hopefully click on your affiliate link, go to amazon and buy one or more products.

Since they clicked on your affiliate link and landed on amazon, your site acted as a bridge between Google and amazon.

And since you sent them to amazon, you will get a commission for products they might buy while on the site. 

This is what affiliate marketing is all about. 

You create websites, rank those sites on Google and other search engines, get traffic to your site - and send your visitors to the merchants site. In this case, the merchant is amazon. And you get paid commissions for whatever the people you sent to the merchant's site buy. 

But before you will be able to build such websites that rank high on Google, you will need to learn SEO - or search engine optimization. 

SEO is the process of getting organic - or free - traffic from Google and other search engines. 

Without a sound knowledge of the various SEO techniques and principles, you will not be able to rank your websites in the search engines and get any organic traffic to your sites. 

Which is why a large part of this course is about SEO. 

All aspects of SEO are discussed in this course - from the fundamentals of SEO to advanced SEO concepts like silos that can help your pages rank with hardly any external backlinks. 

Here's a detailed overview of what is covered in this course ...


Niche Research

A niche is a market segment that caters to a very specific group of people. 

Before you can build a website, you will need to know which segment of people your website will target. 

Ideally, your website should target to a very clearly defined niche. It simply cannot be everything to everyone. 

Since amazon sells products, your niche has to be one that has several products being sold on amazon. 

In this course, several niche research ideas are discussed. By applying these ideas, you will easily and quickly be able to find lucrative niches that have hot products on amazon. 


Keyword Research

Once you have selected a bunch of niches that you find interesting, you will need to identify keywords within the niche that you would want to target. 

This is possibly the most important part of the entire SEO process. You will need to select keywords that are fairly easy to rank - and can generate revenues if your site is to earn revenues month after month. 

Selecting great keywords is one of the most important tasks an SEO does. It's critical that you target the right keywords - or else no amount of SEO might be able to help you rank your site.

This course covers keyword research in great depth. 

Every step of the keyword research process is detailed, so you will be able to select the right kind of keywords. Nothing is left to chance.

Keyword research methods to generate keyword ideas in just about any niche are discussed in excruciating detail. 

And then you get to see how to evaluate keywords for ease of ranking and revenue generating potential. 

Once you have watched these keyword research videos, finding appropriate keywords in just about any niche will be a breeze. 


Silo Architecture

This is rarely discussed in SEO and affiliate marketing courses - but this is a very, very important SEO concept.

Get this right and you will have a much easier time ranking your site in the search engines. 

Many other SEO courses gloss over this concept, or do not present it in a easy to understand manner.

This course covers silos in depth - in a way that is very easy to understand. 

Mastering silos will put you leagues ahead of your competition. 


Complete Worked Example - mattress site blueprint

In this section, you will get to see a complete worked example. 

You will get to see how the keyword research and selection process works, and how silos are designed. 


The niche site model

While silos work very well, not everyone might want to build a siloed site. Most affiliate marketing sites are in fact niche sites. 

This section discusses niche sites and how to make niche sites rank better in the search engines. 


Choosing a domain name

This is a very important step in the process. Certain kinds of domain names may either help or hinder your SEO efforts. These are discussed here. 


Building the website

We use WordPress - possibly the most popular CMS - to build our sites. 

Almost everything you would want to know about building affiliate marketing WordPress sites is discussed here. Everything from 

  • selecting a Wordpress theme 
  • customizing themes 
  • creating a child theme
  • Customizing Wordpress settings
  • choosing plugins
  • setting up plugins
  • choosing and setting up widgets
  • creating a favicon
  • adding and editing pages

adding social sharing buttons

and more. 

You get to see which plugins you might want to use, how to configure each plugin for the most SEO benefits and more. The step by step worked examples that show these plugins being setup will help you set these up yourself.


Backup and restore

It's essential you know how to backup your WordPress sites. You would want to backup your sites periodically - and you would want to know how to restore your site if something were to go wrong.


Site speed - making your WordPress site fast

The faster your site loads, the better it will be for conversions. 

You would want your site to load as fast as possible. Slow sites irritate people and can hurt your conversions. 

In this section, you will get to see exactly how to make your WordPress site load as fast as possible. And you also get to learn what really matters when it comes to site speed. 


Implementing silos in WordPress

Once you have learned what silos are and how they can help your SEO efforts, you would want to implement them. 

But WordPress does not make implementing silos easy. It's not built that way. To implement silos, WordPress makes you jump through several hoops. 

Here, you will see various methods to implement silos for your affiliate marketing sites in WordPress. 


SEO 101

SEO is not hard, but it's a knowledge game. You either know what works or you do not. If you do not get the basics right, your affiliate site will not rank as well as it otherwise could.

The basics of SEO are covered in detail here. 


Advanced on page SEO

While getting the basics of SEO is important, you will not be able to rank your associates website in competitive niches with just the basics alone. And most affiliate marketing sites are usually in fairly competitive niches.

For that, you will need to learn advanced SEO concepts that can turn the tables in your favor. 

And there are a lot of these concepts that will need to be mastered before your site will do well in the search engines. 

All of these are covered in detail here. 

And numerous worked examples will help you understand these concepts better.


Link building

The right kind of links is essential if you are to succeed with your SEO efforts. 

This section looks at the kind of links you would want to build, where to get them and more. 


Building sites in niches with higher commissions

Recently, amazon changed their affiliate commission rates. 

This section looks at the impact of the recent changes, and how to build sites in niches that pay very well now.

David12 February 2020

While there is good information and content in the course, there is also a lot of wasted time and the content seems to be a mix of old/outdated content, irrelevant information, and disorganized information that doesn't flow very well. I have some background/knowledge of WordPress already, so I'm skipping through a lot of content. (Much of it is not current with the versions of WordPress that have been released within the last year or more.) It would be better if the "how to use WordPress" content was separated out from the "here's the optimal way to configure WordPress for an affiliate site" content as well. Feels like a lot of wasted time that could be condensed into something more compact.
