Link Building Campaign Imminent
Posted 23 October 2007 - 10:35 AM
Well they can't, only those sites I approach can have a link, and all signups websites that are 'passing trade' will be persoanlly vetted by myself for relevancy and added value to visitor.
We are not selling a product and do not want unqualified traffic, it's a waste of our time, and the visitors, maybe the temanology 'affiliate program' is making you think of some dodgy 'free DVD ripper' type shareware download portal site.
If another website sign up for our affiliates lead referral service, that is them voting for our site, our service and our offering, and a vote is a vote.
there is no point in someone linking to us thinking they can send us any old tom , dick or harry and will make loads of money, and anyone who thinks that doesn't understand what it is we are offering and therefore we do not want them taking part.
What is it with people having all these negative vibes for a perfectly decent , honest, genuine, 'thank you' reward scheme.
I guess you deal with too many dodgy sites, too often , to notice when someone is trying to do things properly and from a genuine angle.
hey ho, I guess proof is in the pudding, so all I gotta do now is find some tasters!

You are correct it is for IMN , its open to sign up (UK ONLY), but hand vetted by me and I can deactivate an account at the flick of a switch!
But I am getting the feeling / vibe from a few forums that there is a bad stigma attached to affiliate programs, I guess there are good and bad affiliates, just like there are good and bad websites.
I guess it's hard to not get a little upset when tarred with the same brush, but I guess it's enevitable!

From what you've further said, it definitely is, and there's nothing wrong with it. If it helps with link pop. that's certainly a bonus, and there's nothing wrong with that either.

How does it work?
1- You pay when an 'affiliate' signs up & puts a link to your site
2- You pay when an 'affiliate' sends a visitor (ppc)
3- You pay when an 'affiliate' sends a visitor that coverts (pay per conversion- what I think of as a classical affiliate program)
If its 3 then:
How are you tracking this? Why do you say this not an affiliate program in the classical sense?
Posted 24 October 2007 - 05:08 AM
I say its not a 'standard' affiliate program, because a few other forums I've participated in seem to see 'affiliate program' as a physical 'software program' that you take , and then either repackage/rebrand or just simply promote and refer and get paid per download or sale etc..
You are correct nethy it's No.3 - we pay for all converted visitors.
This is tracked firstly by the URL the visitor clicks, it assigns that visitor to the affiliate, if the visitor then fills in a request form, the data is stored in the DB assigned to the appropriate affiliate.
We pass on the lead referral to one of our advisers in the network, if they manage to arrange any type of mortgage/loan/insurance contract for the client, the lead in the DB is assigned the 'Sale' status and the affiliate is credited with the lead referral conversion fee.
quite simple really, what you think?

The link text on your website needs to be descriptive of what the link is actually offering, so only those genuinely interested will click the link. This helps us gain only visitors specifically looking for our services along with helping you to improve your visitor/conversion ratio.
but is purely a 'we would ask' , not 'we insist' , at the end of the day the link will be on their website, so it is up to them how they use it (within reason).
Which makes me think of a slighlty off topic question....
If the anchor text passes on PR with anchor text 'keyword relevancy' can you dilute a competitors keyword saturation by linking to their site for completely the wrong keywords.
so if i linked to www.google.com with anchor text 'teen sluts' on a number of sites, does that dilute there relevancy for 'search engine' for example, or simply add an additional unwanted keyword relevancy to their arsenal?
does the anchor text dilute linked page 'keyword relevancy' in any way?

Short answer: No.
Posted 24 October 2007 - 06:49 PM
Wouldn't this then fail to pass on link juice ans anchor text juice??
Posted 25 October 2007 - 03:52 AM
Short answer : No.
Long Answer : My code is written in a way to make links 301 redirects

Long answer -> The concept put forth of diluting a competitors keyword saturation by linking to their site using the "wrong" keywords in your anchor text is simply wrong. Doing so wouldn't dilute any legitimate link building they've done at all. In fact, all it would do is add another set of keyword phrases for which the engines might list the page for in their SERPs. But it doesn't dilute anything at all.
See the classic example of a Google search for Click Here and a Google search for Acrobat Download. The Click Here search, while basically irrelevant when compared to the Acrobat Download phrase, has zero negative effect. Reality is that it probably has a positive effect because of the sheer number of all of those Click Here links.
