Written by Christopher Kyalo

To be successful at any affiliate marketing program, you not only need traffic but you also require a certain type of traffic. In fact this rule also applies to any online marketing you can think of.

Recently some across an amazing audio interview where one man says he abandoned pay-per-click ads for free articles online marketing because he foundrepparttar latter more effective in his case. You will findrepparttar 145794 audio interview here;


Personally I have been earning a living online for a while now and I have never seen any need to purchase pay-per-click ads (at least not yet). Free articles have done everything for me. Recently Iíve also started combiningrepparttar 145795 free articles with other free online tools andrepparttar 145796 results have been very good.

While I have seen successful affiliate marketing and online marketing done using traffic generation sites and viral marketing sites (see my other articles), one generally requires very high numbers of this type of traffic to be successful. But with articles, you only require very little traffic to be hugely successful. Iíve run blogs with google adsence ads posted (one ofrepparttar 145797 most popular affiliate marketing programs onrepparttar 145798 web currently) and have quickly noted that just a tiny amount of traffic from articles has had a major impact onrepparttar 145799 number of clicks that happened at my blog. I also get clicks from traffic generation sites but I usually require more than 10 timesrepparttar 145800 traffic I get from articles to getrepparttar 145801 same results I get from articles. That is a tested and verified figure from my blog.

The reason may not be too difficult to guess. Traffic that you get fromrepparttar 145802 search engines and pay-per-click ads will berepparttar 145803 sort of traffic that is not entirely sure ofrepparttar 145804 content they will find at your site. Remember that these folks are usually lured in using catchy headlines which may not always be very clear in meaning. In sharp contrast, a visitor to your affiliate marketing site or blog who has read one of your articles will have already sampled much more than just a catchy headline and will therefore not only be sure but will also tend to be extremely interested in what you have to say and is therefore more likely to visit many more pages within your blog, site or affiliate site. The longer a visitor stays,repparttar 145805 betterrepparttar 145806 results you get andrepparttar 145807 more valuable that traffic ends up being to you.

If you're sure your website was previously listed in Google and had some value, then has suddenly disappeared, you'll need to start investigatingrepparttar 145793 reasons why and how you can resolverepparttar 145794 problem.

We'll take a step by step approach and be methodical about this as it'srepparttar 145795 only way to truly determinerepparttar 145796 blame and hopefully resolverepparttar 145797 problem.

Be patient and keep watching results.
