What are 2 most common affiliate marketing mistakes?
1. Not Understanding Search Engines - Understanding the physics of how a search engine including Google will help in how your website is ranking with them. There are two things that we have control over: on-page optimization and backlinks.
On-page optimization - you need to make sure that all the information is in the right place. You need to spend a bit of time on: Content Optimization, Correct Titles and Tags, as well as linking in the article. Original content that is up to date and relevant. Once these are done you wont have to worry about them.
Backlinks - This is the key factor that helps your site to rank well, and is often ignored by a lot of newbies, myself included. The number and quality of backlinks is the ONLY factor that will influence the upwards movement of your site in the page rankings with a search engine. Spend sometime everyday getting good backlinks. The more you have the more your site will move up the rankings.
2. Issues In Your Thinking - Do the research, and learn from your mistakes. If you find that you chose a niche that is just too competitive or after a period of time your website is not producing, don't be afraid to move on. This does not mean that you should quit because you think you have failed.
Also, there is a lot of information available about internet marketing promoting the idea that you can do little work for massive results and have the travel and the glamour. The truth is that there is a daily grind just like any business. At times you will feel that nothing is happening. Everyone goes through this when building something worthwhile.
Ensure that the time you are spending in front of your computer is productive time. You need to be actively doing something with your business that will produce a better result.
A part of the learning process is that you will make mistakes and have some failures. To have any sort of success in affiliate marketing you will need to learn from the mistakes made, get stronger from them, and be willing to put in the hard grind, consistently.
