Create Free Affliate Websites - Really ?

Many people are wanting to generate extra income from the internet these days and getting commissions from companies who sell products to customers that you send to their website is a great way to get started.

Using the free page builder and the free sub-domain, you can build a webpage - or in fact a whole website based around a group of related products.

Selecting A Product to Promote

Amazon is a good place to start. For Amazon you can set up your web page to give reviews and tips on selected products. When selecting products there are several points to bear in mind.

The Product Price

With Amazon your commissions are in the region of 4 - 10 % so you don't want to promote anything too cheap or your earnings will be quite low. However remember also that with Amazon, they pay you a higher percentage the more you sell, so there is still a good reason to market some lower price easier to sell products. It does pay to diversify your price points for this reason.

The Product Rating

On Amazon people who purchase a product can come back and give a rating for the it. This can vary from 1-5 stars depending on how good they personally think the product is. Obviously 5 stars is the highest. The average rating that has been given to the product is listed right next to the product name.

Personally I like to I choose products that have a rating of at least 3.5-4 stars. Anything lower and it tends to look like a poor quality product and sales will be difficult to get.

User Reviews

Customers that have made a purchase can also leave a review of the product. Its good if you selecta product with a few good reviews - I like to pick one with at least 15 good reviews. You can use excepts from the reviews for your web page.

Search Volume

Once you think you have chosen a product, you want to check that people are looking for it. You can do this by using the Google Keyword Tool. This will tell you the monthly search volume.

For example, lets say that you selected a Tablet: The ASUS Transformer TF300 T-B1-BL 10.1-Inch 32 GB Tablet (Blue)

Notice that it has a start rating of 4 stars and 207 cutomer reviews.

Now in the Search for "ASUS Transformer tablet" there are over 90,000 monthly searches.
So that shows that people want to buy the product.

You can do more research in order to establish how much competition you will be facing if you try to promote this product. A free way to do this is to use the Firefox plugin called SEOQuake and do a Google Search on the product name in quotes.

Like this: "ASUS Transformer tablet" This shows over a million pages - a lot of competion!. But before making any decision you would need to find out out strong that competion is - after all it is just those on Googles first page that you need to be concerned about.

The above factors all have an influence in product selection. Amazon is just one example, Clickbank is another area where much higher commissions can be earned. Clickbank is a marketplace for digital products which can be downloaded immediately. Because there are no delivery changes and no phisicla product, commissions are much higher, often around 75 %. Thousands of affiliates make good incomes selling Clickbank products.

Selecting Your Page Name

When setting up an affliate page, you want to attract both search engine traffic and human traffic. The way to do this is with careful selection of your page name. Use your main target keyword for your page name.

By doing so you will possess the url:

Once you have your desired keyword page name you want to create the text of your page in such a way as to score well with the search engines.

Using Header Tags to Give Structure

Google and other search engines love properly structured web pages, so the best way to construct your web page is to structure it with proper HTML tags.

Simple Page helps you do that with the sub-head button. When you highlight a line of text and click on the sub-head button, it will wrap the text with a pair of [sub] [/sub] tags. These will get changed into H2 html tags when the page is displayed.
