How to Get SEO Value from Affiliate Marketing


“If you’ve been in the digital marketing industry for a while, you know that SEO and affiliate marketing have had a rocky history. The assumption is that affiliate links mar the SEO efforts you put into your website. And whenever there’s a drop in rankings for affiliate sites, the blame automatically falls on those links.

So publishers and bloggers may think twice about monetizing their websites through affiliate marketing. And brands may have a harder time getting quality affiliate links because of this. This will, in turn, affect their SEO efforts.

But it doesn’t necessarily have to be this way. If done right, affiliate marketing can deliver SEO value for both affiliate websites and brands.”

“When you study what goes into making your site top of Google, there are literally hundreds of ranking factors you need to take into account, however the power of what you do with your subscribers lies directly in your hands. It’s estimated the average worldwide opt-in rate for push notifications was 67.5% (According to Accentage) in H1 2018. Web Push Notifications also have an impressive Opt-in rate of almost 90% (according to Quora)

If the opt in rate is higher for these types of messages doesn’t it make sense to use it strategically to grow your own conversions?”

It’s Time for Coupon Codes to Change


“Coupon and loyalty affiliate companies have much data about their members. This data includes demographic details, as well as purchase habits and interests. Armed with such data, affiliates could significantly optimize further if they had the ability to present coupons specific to each member. Another level of optimization could occur if these affiliates could react to consumer decisions in real-time, but coupon codes for any particular merchant are constrained by a merchant’s shopping cart and the need for that merchant to create coupons manually and significantly ahead of a consumer’s purchase decision. But what would our Affiliate Marketing world look like if this constraint were lifted? What would be possible if affiliates could create codes on demand that transparently worked in a merchant’s shopping cart?”
