Aside from adding affiliate links within my blog posts, what are the others best places (spots) on my website that I could include affiliate links?

To what extent should I include affiliate links so I can't violate any important ranking factor

Should I include affiliate links from the very beginning of a new website?

Hi Charles

There are differing opinions on when to place affiliate links on your site (and where).
It would probably be best to provide content without affiliate links at first.

Jay (magistudios) also recommends a very uncluttered-looking site so that would mean no widgets running down the sides.

You could, however, place banners in widgets on the right-hand or left-hand side, if you chose to.

A further option is in the footer of your site, you could add banners there with your affiliate links.

Another option I have seen members who promote WA using is to have a tab on the menu that says something like "Free Training" or "No. 1 Recommendation" and that tab is an affiliate link onto Wealthy Affiliate.

Hope this helps you.
Louise

Hi - your first few posts should be purely informational with no selling intent, no affiliate links and not be product based. Otherwise, right from the outset, Google will see it as a "spammy" selling site.

When you do add affiliate links, they should be within a product review post. You need to let your readers know why you recommend this product, is it value for money, what are the pros and cons etc.

Hi

One affiliate link per every 500 words.

For example: They may go in specs, image and a CTA for a 1500 words review post.
