Huge Traffic is one of my favorite affiliate networks for a couple of reasons. The first is that it gives you some pretty incredible tools to help promote their sites on pbns web hosting sites.
The second is that you always get paid on time and you know exactly where the traffic is coming from. Now, it must be said that this affiliate network is not going to be for everybody. It’s a network that is only for the dating niche. But seeing as how we run a dating site along with Best Online Marketing Software we found this to be an excellent choice for us.
The main sites that Huge Traffic promotes are MeetLocals, Fling and WealthyMen. Now, these are sites go from PG to R in terms of the content that they give you to promote, but there is no denying the fact that they are effective in their ad campaigns. Another thing that we love is that HT has one of the most generous webmaster referral programs on the internet.
As mentioned before, Huge Traffic is primarily a dating site referral program. You post the links or banners on your site and when somebody signs up you get the commission for as long as they have a paid account with the site. It works the same way as the Match.com referral program works, but it’s much easier to promote because their banners are a little more scantily clad shall we say.
The coolest thing about the Huge Traffic network is that it gives you some pretty high speed banners that you can use. They have everything from traditional links to geo targeted banners and side banner pop ups. These guys put a lot of effort into the banners that they give you. It’s not the same old same old that’s what makes the conversions so easy to get.
Link types are some of the most important parts of getting higher rankings. Why? Because we’re not dealing with the internet of 2004 or 2005. We need start looking at our link profiles and really take inventory of what we’re putting out there.
Google is getting increasingly lame about what they count as a good link so we have to be extremely careful about what we are using to link back to our websites.
I have been going over the latest news from Search Engine Land and I have come up with a pretty good list of what we at Best Online Marketing Software will be using from now on when backlinking our site.
1. Social Bookmarks
All right, so it’s not that much of a surprise that one of the best link types you can get for your site are social bookmarks. But we have to have the right bookmarks. There aren’t enough sites out there offering dofollow links so you need to monitor what you’re putting out there.
Sites like StumbleUpon and Diigo are great, but some are nofollow. For instance, I read in this article on social media that Pintrest only offers a dofollow link in your profile. But, for now social bookmarking sites are still great for getting the link types you need for a well rounded link profile. The SB Bomber is great for getting social bookmarking links quickly.
2. RSS Links
RSS links are great for getting all of your posts indexed. They don’t really bring in all that much traffic anymore, Google and the other SEs like when you have different link types in your profiles. I recommend not only submitting your RSS feed from your money site, but also all of your tier 1, 2 and 3 sites to get all of their posts indexed and to get all of their links aggregated into the search engines.
The easiest way to submit your RSS feeds is to use the RSS Submitter. This thing is awesome and it works perfectly. If you have SENuke XCR you can also use its RSS submitter. There are a lot more RSS sites on the nuke than on this free tool.
3. Lateral Links
Okay, this is a term that we kind of came up with to describe links that you will only build to your money sites and your tier 1 link list. These link types are basically everything that you can’t use as a tier on your pyramid or link wheel.
These include, but are not limited to social bookmarks, blog comments and guest blogging (yes, I know that guest blogging is “dead” but you can still get some great traffic from it if you get with the right site owner).
Lateral links are the type of links that boost your site’s authority, but not the PR. We like to use Magic Submitter for our lateral link submissions.
4. Directory Links
Directories can offer some really great link types for your website. Some of the best directories are DMOZ, Yahoo Business Directory and Yelp. These aren’t always going to be easy to get into, but you might be able to get in. Just try.
If not, there are still some great directories out there that offer high PR links back to your site. Use the SEOQuake plugin to find the highest PR category that your site will fit in and then submit your link. This will give you the best backlink to your site and boost it’s ranking immensely.
5. Internal Links
It has been said that internal links are almost more important than external links on your sites. Why? Because when the search engines crawl your site you are giving them user experience. They love this and will reward you by not only indexing all of your internal links, but boosting their PR.
Also, Google gives each page on your site a different PR rating. So when one of your pages has a PR of 3 or 4 and it links to page that only has a PR of 2 the PR will go up on that page with the 2. This is a great way to get your own site working for itself while using one of the best link types out there.
