Essentials of Network Marketing

Written by Sean Felker

Surely by now youíve heard of network marketing and its promises to generate for you an unlimited income fromrepparttar luxury of your own home withoutrepparttar 146808 stress of a fixed workday schedule.

You might wonder what magic this network marketing is. Itís really quite simple, and when successful, you really can makes lots of money. Of course, itís not as easy asrepparttar 146809 ads make it to be.

Some manufacturers use another route to sell their products other thanrepparttar 146810 standard manufacturer-warehouse-wholesaler-retailer-customer path.

This alternative route is known as network marketing. You buyrepparttar 146811 products from someone who is already a member of a network marketing company.

He recruits you and becomes your sponsor.

You, in turn, will be selling products too. Upon joiningrepparttar 146812 network, you will become a part of your sponsorís downline, which just means all of his recruits and his recruitsí recruits (and so on).

Your sponsor benefits from his downline because he will get a small percentage of profit for every item sold by every member.

However, aside from selling, you are also expected to get recruits and create your own downline.

The bigger your downline is,repparttar 146813 better chances for you to earn big.

Suppose you recruit ten people, and each one of them recruits another ten. Youíll get a hundred people already at justrepparttar 146814 second level.

If all these members are active sellers and recruiters then youíll have around more than a thousand people from which you can get profit from.

Thereís monetary investment involved in network marketing. Some ask for membership fees, while most require you to buy a set of allrepparttar 146815 products offered upon joining.

Either way, itís still money out of your pocket. If youíre willing to risk joining a startup company, you will not be dealing with sponsors because youíll be a pioneer member.

If and whenrepparttar 146816 company becomes successful, youíll have more members in your downline than youíve ever dreamed of, and if all of them do their job well, maybe you can afford to sit back and wait whilerepparttar 146817 money goes straight to your pocket, and not out of, for a change.

Google's Secret Guidelines On Thin Affiliates

Written by Allan Gardyne

Journalist Henk van Ess has caused a flurry of excitement on blogs and forums.

In his blog he revealed that Google uses teams of humans all overrepparttar world to evaluaterepparttar 146621 accuracy of Google's search results.

These "international agents", who are paid $10 to $20 an hour, were recruited mainly through universities. They're paid to check search results at Google every day.

Don't be distracted byrepparttar 146622 debate over whether Google should be doing this.

Of course it should. It's just a form of quality control.

Google can userepparttar 146623 evaluators' findings to tweak its algorithms and reduce search engine spam.

What affiliates need to pay careful attention to is Google's "Spam Recognition Guide for Raters", which Henk revealed.

If you're a "thin affiliate," beware.

Althoughrepparttar 146624 report is a year old, about 80% of its contents are still being used by Google's evaluators, Henk says.

The confidential document gives us an unvarnished look at Google's attitude to affiliates.

If you're using any ofrepparttar 146625 "manipulative techniques" Google describes, this report will probably encourage you to take a hard look at your website.

I hope you're not silly enough to be using hidden links or hidden text. Not surprisingly, Google teaches its "raters" how to detect them.

Are you creating pages without much content withrepparttar 146626 aim of collecting pay-per-click (PPC) revenue? Google's raters are taught to mark such pages as "Offensive", and gives examples.

Google secret guidelines spend some time discussing different ways in which some affiliates display results from pay-per-click search engines, so if you're doing that, you'll definitely want to study this report carefully.

Are you displaying ads disguised as search engine results? Google finds them offensive.

Are you adding a feed to your site withrepparttar 146627 aim of earning PPC revenue? That's "offensive", too.

Google says:

"We differentiate between affiliates that produce extra service, value, or content, and those that simply are duplicates of other sites, set up to boost traffic to other sites and earn a commission for it. The former ones are not Offensive and should be rated onrepparttar 146628 merits torepparttar 146629 query. The latter ones are Offensive... "Thin affiliate doorways are sites that usher people to a number of Affiliate programs, earning a commission for doing so, while providing little or no value-added content or service torepparttar 146630 user. A site certainly hasrepparttar 146631 right to try to earn income; we're attempting to identify sites that do nothing but act as a commission-earning middleman."
