Default PPC & Affiliate Marketing?

Hello Experts and Researchers,

I am trying to promote one of my pages where I generate leads for survey companies. The website is converting visitors just fine, but traffic is the main issue. With enough of it, I will surely be able to make a modest income.

The problem is traffic, as this is a highly competitive niche. So far my best results have been offline SEO which is another post altogether. I want to us Google Adwords to send people to my website.

My website has a blog with tons of useful job-related information. It also has reviews for the top 7 survey companies. How can I use Adwords to direct people to this affiliate website?

In past situations I was denied by Google because the pages I was leading people to contained affiliate links and not enough content. How do people combat this issue?

Should I be creating landing pages with no affiliate links that will funnel people to the money pages? Or do I adjust the affiliate landing pages to work with Google Adwords and how can I do this?

I'd also like to say that I'm a long time reader of these forms and I've received tons of great information so far. Thanks to anyone who can help me with my en-devour. Let's all get a piece of this giant PIE.

A lot of affiliate marketeers have this same problem with Google. However, Google is not the only place. You can buy a huge amount of traffic from other networks & exchanges at a fraction of the price what Google charges.

Without looking at your landing page, I can't comment on what you need to get approved by Google.

Before you go and buy some traffic, I would strongly advice you to have a look at your landing page. You need to give only one call to action and make your CTA above the fold.

You can buy very cheap traffic at www.7search.com

Hope this helps.

Thumbs up PPC Advertising.

Hi there,

These guys are right. There are many out there that are cheap and work well. Google is too hard.
Some of these PPC advertisers link to Google as well.
Firstly have you registered your website with Google Webmasters?
Secondly have you had some one build a link pyramid to your site for ratings?
The higher the rating the higher on the listings.
Then try Bing Add's its easy to use and not too expensive. It links to a lot of the main sites and gets good results.
Then like Uzair said www.7Search is easy, cheap and gets results as well.

Hope this helps,
DR

Default as for the capture pages:

If you are wanting to avoid having big long capture page names that end with ?yourusername or userada; or any other ugly headline there are a couple of ways you can do it.

If you go to bitly.com you can have a link that directs to your site, and can look decent for the viewer.

It will take it to the ugly looking link, but when they first see it they don't have to enter it.

Another option is that if you have your own domain name, you can create a subdirectory and create a redirect page.

An example here would be

http://YOUR DOMAIN NAME/FOLDER

and upload a file named index.php.

The code in it will be this:

<?php header("Location: URL of the site you are redirecting"); ?>

when you then direct people to http//your domain/folder it will then automatically redirect to the destination site.

It won't actually mask the url destination, but it will save them the necessity of typing a log url.
