2. Don't over do it! Limit your affiliate links in respect to your main content (ie. If your affiliate links take up more room then your main content, you have way too many).

Why? At Worldprofit, when we designrepparttar Ultimate Home Business Package we only recommend three affiliate links inrepparttar 102632 home page design. The reason for this is because:

a) We don't wantrepparttar 102633 surfers to become confused b) We don't wantrepparttar 102634 site to become cluttered c) We wantrepparttar 102635 surfer's to trust your site d) We don't wantrepparttar 102636 site to be too long When a page is too long (and looking crowded)repparttar 102637 surfer usually won't read it all and many miss out onrepparttar 102638 important info intended for them to read.

So what do you do if you have fantastic affiliate links that are relevant to your site, but you just have way too many? I have a couple easy solutions:

1. Create additional pages just for your affiliate links. 2. If you have a Worldprofit Malls plugin (included inrepparttar 102639 Ultimate Home Biz Pkg, you could place affiliate links in there by category! This is a great solution because you can fill your malls up with some great info & divide it all up by specific category! You could set up unlimited links!

Salvaging the FFAL...

Continued from page 1

Since having a site analysis tool onrepparttar page, I have a good idea of what is getting placed onrepparttar 102631 page and how many people are searching for it. About 300 people a month find my page this way. Why, you ask, is my FFAL page getting indexed? I read an article written by Mark Joyner over a year ago, and it seems that others have read it also. In case you missed it...

What it says in short is, after placing your link on several FFAL pages, index it torepparttar 102632 search engines to give your website a temporary popularity boost.

The next question is, what can I do with this information. I know how many, and what they are searching for. If I'm lucky, I'm already selling what they want. Chances are, I'm not. I turned to affiliate programs to fill my visitors needs. I set up affiliates with casinos, travel and dating. I then placed them onrepparttar 102633 FFAL page.

Affiliate programs can be found at:

If I'm getting random visitors to my site withrepparttar 102634 FFAL page, why shouldn't I try to keep them on my page and sell them something? I don't have any real stats just yet, but I will let you know how it turns out.
