Avoid Poison Keywords and Sleazy Niches

Google watches some keywords more than they do others.

Their approach to wiping out low quality websites is based on what they have learned from collecting data and tweaking algorhithms for many years and seeing where the “webspammers” are most actively trying to trick them.

The main thing I have learned in my 15 + years of being a web publisher and building all kinds of websites for profit is that it’s generally better to focus on what I call “mid tier keywords” that are not as HYPER COMPETITIVE and as such commonly abused by SPAMMERS!

You know the poison niches… the keywords that can get you in trouble faster… the ones clogging your spam email box.

It’s much easier to get on top faster by avoiding those legacy big money keywords and instead profit by focusing on variations of those posion keywords or selecting keywords in different niches that are not so hot in the spamming community.

You must be aware that Google watches some keywords more than they watch others.

They watch the ones that spammers typically promote. You know the ones… they’re in your email box every day as spam messages. Try to stay away from promoting that stuff! They seek out spammers aggresively and it’s harder to rank for those keywords. So why bother?

There are so many good niches to build sites for with tons of great keywords that are profitiable and are NOT hammered by spammers.

And the mid tier keywords are much easier to rank for.

You do NOT NEED to do the BLACK HAT things that the webpsammers are doing to get lots of free traffic when you target mid tier keywords.

The Blogging Underground 12 Step Success Strategy focuses very heavily on picking the best keywords. It’s the real secret to our success!

Now – I am not saying you can’t be successful marketing more mainstream products or products that have even crossed over into ultra spammy territory – but you need to be aware that when you start to fight your battle in a zone filled with spammers you’re more likley to get caught up and tagged an an evil affiliate marketer.

Now – be careful you don’t fall into believing the common misconception that Google hates ALL AFFILIATES. They don’t.

But they sure do seem to hate affiliates that do sleazy things to make a buck.

They are perfectly fine with good marketers who are not building fake news blogs or using deceptive techniques to trick people and get sales.

Marketing legit good products as affiliates is not the same as hustling some online scams or bogus products that don’t deliver what is offered.

Hey – we’re not the same people Google were really mad at a year or so ago when the CPA offers got out of control and everyone was spamming them. You know – the fake news blogs that caused Google to get in trouble with the FTC over the false advertising and bogus practices promoting ridiculous cures and sleazy offers for Acai Berry Juice and all that other evil CPA stuff like offers that were impossible to cancel etc.

People were doing all kinds of sleazy stuff like using Oprah and Dr. Oz without their permission. It was way out ofcontrol and the U.S> goevernment stepped in and started getting involved. (continued – read more of this article…)

Adsense Money or Affiliate Commissions?

Should you promote Adsense ads or affiliate products?
Or should you add an affiliate offer in addition to placing Adsense ads on your site?

I just posted an article on the Blogging Underground forum that has some great info on monetization and how to get really big paydays by promoting a product or offer on your web sites.

>>> Adsense Ads or Affiliate Products

It all started with a BU member asking about all the gurus out there complaining about losing their Adsense accounts.

I answered his question about whether he should be “really careful” and it led to some great ideas about how you can make a lot of money by also promoting affiliate products that match the content of your web pages.

It requires a little extra effort – but the big paydays are usually worth it!

Adsense is great for a lazy quick buck here and there – it really can’t be beat for ease of use – but the big money often comes when you create a keyword targeted web page that gets a top ranking for an exact match keyword and then gets a ton of traffic – and – WHEN you have a perfectly matched affiliate product that is prominently featured on the page – well – that’s a GRAND SLAM HOME RUN!

Super Affiliate Marketing and Higher Commissions

Do you want to be a super affiliate?

An Article Underground member just sent me an email with a few questions about affiliate programs, high ticket items and Adsense. I thought I’d share the info with you guys as well!

“Can you make more money with higher ticket items/higher payouts? Which affiliate programs are best? Are banners really less effective than text links?”

My thoughts came flowing… this is not a guide or lesson – just some of my thoughts.

It depends on your niche(s) and web site themes, so there are no fixed answers for the best affiliate programs, however the idea is to stay away from LOW payouts and low percentage of sales – a 5 or 10% commission is generally just not worth promoting unless you are easily selling something for $1,000. or more.

How hard is it to get that payout??? Do you have to work hard for it?

In most cases – getting conversions requires work – so larger payouts are generally a safer bet and often require the same amount of work or less.

This all changes if you have HUGE TRAFFIC NUMBERS to work with. But then again – it also depends if the traffic is highky targeted or not.

Sure – you can make money promoting free smiley giveaways with a $1.75 payout per lead – but ONLY if you have HUGE traffic – because it is very unlikely you have a web page or site that is smiley targeted and gets huge traffic.

General – mainstream – untargeted traffic is not bad to have – but your conversion rates will be muc less and you will need to work pretty hard to find something that converts. Not everything will.

Unless you have insane volume and huge traffic numbers, it’s very hard to make money off pennies, dimes or even dollar payouts. That said – if you can get a lot of conversions very easily with an IRRESISTABLE OFFER for little effort or money spent – that’s different. But it’s a rarity.

In all honesty – it’s pretty much a crapshoot. You need to throw stuff out there to see what converts and what sells.

That is why I often have difficulty giving training with specifics. The variables always make things hard to pin down. There are so many variables.

What kind of traffic. What are they visiting for? Are there looking for information on a broad topic or a specific tight keyword phrase???

While it never hurts to have a large amount of untargeted traffic – it is almost always preferable to have some or even a LITTLE traffic that is VERY TARGETED – because you can find something that is more likely to convert. Match a product that is what that visitor needs and you will have higher conversions.
