How to Learn Affiliate Marketing – Step 3 – Traffic and Comments

Please share this post!

The topic of traffic is always high on the priority list for affiliate marketers. We all know that the amount of “traffic” we get to our websites will have a direct effect on the amount of money we make. It’s as simple as that. So in this lesson, we will learn how to get that traffic to your website, incorporating the strategy of Post Comments.

Increasing Traffic

We’ve learned in our other lessons all about “traffic.” What is traffic? It’s the people coming to your website. Without traffic to your website, there is nobody there to read your posts or buy your products. So we need to do everything we can to ensure that we bring that traffic, bring those people, to your website.

We have many ways to bring traffic to your website. We want free traffic. We want to set up our website so it is optimized to rank in the search engines which will organically begin to bring traffic to your site. It’s easy if you know what you’re doing and set up everything right from the start.

So let’s discuss some ways to bring traffic to your website.

Keyword placement

Perfect keyword placement – as discussed in Step 1 and in this article: KEYWORD ANALYSIS is an important factor in optimization and traffic. You want to study this keenly and, of course, you will want to use the free Jaaxy tool for choosing those keywords.

Website comments

This strategy is what I’m going to focus on with you today because nothing tells Google or Bing or Yahoo search that your website is relevant like website comments.

At the bottom of every post on your WordPress website will be a comments section. People can leave a comment or a question for you, and you will have the ability to approve or deny the comment and also to respond to the comment.

So how do we get people to comment on our site?  I have a great solution that will give you relevant, meaty comment on all of your posts!

Check it out below!

A community of affiliate marketers

 

So here, again, we turn to the Wealthy Affiliate platform of affiliate marketers. When you join the Wealthy Affiliate program, you are immediately put in contact with the hundreds of thousands of affiliate marketers that are members. Each of these members is not only a wealth of information, many of them marketing for many, many years. The platform itself is 13 years old, and the creators of Wealthy Affiliate are still just as active on the platform as they were when they designed it.

Many of the members not only know so much, but they share so much. There are member-to-member trainings throughout the Wealthy Affiliate platform. As I’ve said before, it would take forever to even go through all the trainings. Most of them are video trainings, so you not only learn, but you get to see the function in action. You can’t beat that. Pick a subject – say you’re interested in learning Pinterest Marketing, right? You’ve just signed up for a Pinterest account, and you know it’s a great way to get your website out there, but now do you do it?

Well, as a Wealthy Affiliate member, you simply type in “Pinterest” into the search, and look at all the training that pops up:

 

Pretty amazing. Let’s try another search. Let’s say we need to learn how to use themes in WordPress:

 

 

The members also help you build up your website comments. It’s a give and take process through the Wealthy Affiliate platform. You give relevant comments to two other affiliate marketers on their sites, and then the system allows you to request a comment on a post of your choice. It’s a really simple process, and it works.

What is a “relevant” comment

A relevant comment is a meaty comment. You don’t want comments like, “Great article!” because that is so generic, it could pertain to anything.

You want a comment instead that is more like, “I thought this article was great because I have been looking for a way to build up my traffic, and your suggestions about keywords and comments really resonated with me. I didn’t realize the importance of the website comments, and I think the Wealthy Affiliate platform is genius to provide a way to get them simply.”

Leave and Receive Comments

So it’s super simple to get website comments. It’s all built right into the Wealthy Affiliate platform. You simply click on the Website Comments section:

 

 

Then you can leave relevant comments on other marketers’ posts and earn your two points to request a comment on your site. It’s that simple, and highly effective!

Conclusion

There is no doubt about the fact that ranking in the search engines is what is going to bring you success. Receiving lots of website comments on your various posts is one way to get that ranking. It’s a time-consuming step, but it is one that you can learn a great deal from.

When you are reviewing your fellow marketers’ websites, you are absorbing some amazing ideas. Each person has a unique take on their niche and an individual way to present information and sell products. You can learn so much from your fellow marketers.

One thing you never want to do is copy someone else’s work or website. That’s unethical and something that will only hurt you in the long run. Google doesn’t like repetition, and if they find your site is a regurgitation of someone else’s content, it will greatly diminish your ability to rank. Therefore, don’t do it.
