Hey
I was going through Course 3 and kyle kept reiterating that one should not post affiliate links on each blog posts. He recommended that one should post affiliate links on review pages. What i am little confused about it, how do i direct visitors to the review posts about a product, from my non affiliate link posts ?

Do I just link some related texts in my non affiliate link post to review posts ?
Or
Do i Link the review posts at end of every non affiliate link posts on purpose?

For example :
If i am explaining smart tv features (which is my niche) to a visitor through a blog post, should i add a review link to a product at the end of the post ? Or should i highlight some related words in the post and link it to the review posts ?

Or is there any other way to do it ? How do you maintain the balance between spamming and posting affiliate links ?

Hi Sanket,
There are many different options and that depends on the niche, the site, the type of material if it is a post or a product review, and so on... The great thing is that you have different options that you can try and test to see what works out best for you.

For instance, I have banners in the main page and side bar for some affiliate programs, and then through the content I might include an affiliate link for a specific product or service.

Try to think as the visitor to your site on what would be useful for them.

Best regards,
JL

Which banners do you choose to post in the side bar ? The most popular products ? I was planning to include popular posts in the side bar, those posts will have popular comparisons of products, and affiliate links, and top 5 products for the month etc.

I do think one has to try and test various strategies to come up with a plan. I am also planning to put internal links to different posts of reviews with affiliate links.

What other processes have worked for you in this regard ?

Hi Sanket,

That depends on the site and purpose. I include banners from affiliate programs such as WA and another affiliate programs I work with. In one of the sites I also include links to specific Amazon products and check it out regularly to see if people is clicking and buying. This is one of the examples of test and learn, if it does not work out, you can take it out and change it.

I am fairly new at WA as I only started back in June, therefore I am focussing on creating content, making the site appealing, getting ranked and building the brand and respect. Therefore I am learning as go, and taking the training courses is also very important.

If you want to check the sites, the links are both included in my profile.

Best regards
JL

I suppose you should have two types of articles on your website: review and informational. In the informational blog posts, you can add a content box with a text, and an image that links to your review article. Say, for example, you write a blog about the features to look out for when purchasing a smart TV, you can include a content box halfway through or at the bottom of your blog post with a heading "Our Top Smart TV Pick" or "My Top Smart TV Pick". This post by Dom Wells shows you an example of a content box that you can consider adding to your blog posts: All the best!
