Backlinking Tips

As a senior learning Internet marketing one of the hardest task for me has been the finding of effective ways to build Backlinks. This past week I was once again reminded of the need for this when I was reading Five Backlinking Strategies You Shouldn’t Waste Your Time With In 2012 by Robert Jones (nickname kezanari). I direct your attentin to this post as there are many great ideas in this article and in the comments that have been made.

As followers of this blog you will know that I am an advocate of James Martell of Affiliate Marketers SUPER BootCamp fame. He was recently at Affiliate Summit in Las Vegas and returned with some words of wisdom from Matt Cutts. Matt was quoted as saying things like “I’m not a big fan of article marketing”, “article directories are low-value sites with duplicate, poorly written content that does not add value to the Net”, “I’d lean away from it”. In the above article, kezanari feels that doing mass submission of articles is a pure waste of time. Although there are a number of companies offering services to submit your articles to thousands of sites it appears that this is not the way to go.

The whole idea is to add useful content that visitors will want to read. By adding unique, quality information to the web Google will index your article and the Backlinks in these articles have a better chance of being clicked upon. Plus this will add to the value of your web page that you are hoping to get ranked.

I also took kezanari’s advice and read 18 Link Building Techniques by Ben Jackson on Mitz’s Website. I urge you to read this very insightful article. I for one was surprised to see that ezinearticles.com was still showing a page rank of 6. After the Panda slap I had completely given up on using this site. There are many useful resources in this article. Like others Ben recommends that you pick one method and master it. He also emphasizes the need for quality content. He stresses the need to write for visitors to your article rather than producing articles that are only geared for search engines.

With James, kezanari, and Ben all accentuating the idea of quality, unique content, guest posting is going to be one of the best courses of action. Members of James Martell’s Affiliate Marketers SUPER BootCamp course have access to a course on guest posting.

For me, I have started with this idea of doing guest posts. I have found that I have enjoyed an increase in traffic for those pages to which I have linked back with anchor text. For those of us who are striving to be work at home seniors it is very necessary for us to learn as much as we can about the process of Backlinking.

ClickBank Is A Changing!


As Clickbank evolves there are bound to be changes. There will be more competition for both product developers and affiliate marketers. This is bound to scare some people away but it also signals a healthy growing market place. With more selections there is room for more players.

ClickBank is stepping into the Global economy with its introduction of three tutorial videos to help bring on German, French and Spanish speaking sellers and affiliates. This broadens the scope for all other participants. .

Added to this they will be doing more handholding for the masses, training product creators to stay above the board and not spam or do unethical things, and training affiliates to utilize tools to make more sales. This is a chance for senior online marketers who are just getting started to learn a new area of  Internet marketing.

For example, in a recent ClickBank blog post, they even advised affiliates to use PLR to help promote ClickBank products. That’s a positive thing for marketers, because many online companies frown on PLR, not understanding its ability in the marketplace.

ClickBank is going to continue cracking down on vendors. Many topics are already being declined from previous lists and you can expect them to continue weeding out topics in the coming year.

They’ve recently shut down topics such as credit repair, marketing through social networks, multi level marketing memberships, and more. You’re unable to submit topics in these categories at all and they will not review your product for you.

ClickBank plans to ensure its vendors are in compliance with the FTC regulations – especially if you’re using the Vendor Spotlight feature. They don’t tell you what’s wrong, just that you’re not in compliance – and they direct you to the FTC’s website so you can investigate the rules yourself.

The site has also begun expending its marketplace categories, and probably will widen it more as the number of vendors and affiliates grow. You may have noticed, if you already have a product there, that when you log into your account, you’re told of your new category and subcategory – and given a chance to dispute it if you wish to do so.

Although some people are displeased with the Clickbank marketplace and look for other sources to market their products or to join affiliate programs; Clickbank still has the largest affiliate base. Or for those looking the largest number of products to promote as an affiliate it is still the number one site. Other places like PayDotCom are trying to give it a run for its money but so far Clickbank is number one. It is a great place for seniors working from home to start to earn money quickly.
