Making money from affiliate links isn't as simple as writing a piece of content and putting your affiliate link at the bottom of the page. Sometimes it takes a bit of finesse, and usually a lot of tweaking to find something that works.

This is a tutorial on a few different specific positions in your page that you can leverage to earn money from affiliate links, plus a few tips that have worked for me over the years. Let's see if we can put some $$$ in your [|] (That's a wallet, lol)

Thanks. This is the info I was looking for. I have a post about getting a baby to sleep and in it I mention that a white noise machine worked wonders for my children. I wanted to link to amazon's white noise machines, but I didn't do a review on a white noise machine (it has nothing to do with my site per se) so I didn't know if this was ok. But it looks like it is ok to do. The post is just over 1600 words and has no other affiliate links

Thank you for this! Very helpful. I implemented your "exit strategy" to one of my wordy (tehee) posts. I am a fan of letting links flow naturally within the content, pushy selling has never resonated with me.

When would you call traffic, Traffic? At 100 visitors/day? 500 visitors/day? 5000 ?

Depends. Maybe 20-50 visits a day consistently.

Thanks for that, Nathaniel - very well put. You are so right about the traffic. You think you have everything laid out perfectly, but no sales and then you find out there's no traffic!

Excellent article. I'm bookmarking it and will refer back. Writing product reviews is my least favorite thing to write. I know it shouldn't be but it is. I like the comparing products. I'll try that next time and see how it goes. Thanks, Nathan

Great tutorial and suggestions! Do you have any thoughts to share about the effect of affiliate links on SERP results? ... and a closely related question, any thoughts about cloaking affiliate links? Thanks much!

It's hard to say. Some pages with lots of affiliate links rank well, some don't. It really depends on the length and quality of content, as well as competition for the keyword.
