Page One On Google Again
I spent 4 hours on this post before publishing. This is probably the longest time I spent on a single post (I have a bad habit of wasting time hunting for images then writing blog).
And believe it or not, I didn't expect it to rank high. Because I'm not crafting this post as an ego-bait. As such I am not banking on influencers to promote the post for me
Well, turned out it did rank quite well. after spending a few hours in between in Google Sandbox.
Compared to my previous post that enjoyed a brief stay on page 1, this
has a lower QSR (69).
Here's the screen shot (before it got Sandbox-ed again)
With this post, I want to highlight one concern that most new WA members have (including myself) when they first started the lessons on affiliate link.
There is the misconception that if you put affiliate links in your post, then Google is going to punish you and you're not going to rank well.
I believe that's not the case. Your site will only get punish if you produce low quality content or you spam it with affiliate links.
All the best to other WA members. May this be an inspiration to myself and others to keep going for success.
