Affiliate Sales Compared - A Post Penguin And Panda Health Check

You would have thought that a lot of the affiliate sites would have been suffering since Google had clamped down on the easier ways to get links and the quicker ways to gain rankings. Affiliates (unfairly in a lot of cases) are tarnished with the ‘churn and burn em’ brush – but in reality a lot of affiliates are quietly going about their business producing high quality sites that Google likes and is willing to rank. The three updates that you may have thought would have had an impact on the affiliate sphere would be: Panda – designed to help the sites with better content and design rank above the kind of sites that were throwing pages up for rankings rather than users – famous losers include sites like Ezine Articles Penguin – designed to limit the possibility of ranking well by partaking in low quality link building – any site that did so, not only run the risk of issues with ranking but could be de-indexed completely.

Avoid choosing keywords that are very broad. Keyword can be broad even if they have more than one word. The fact of the matter is that it is not how well the site ranks for a certain word, or even the amount of traffic a site attracts from the ranking, but the number of potential customers who visit the site.
