I Think I Have A New Friend
Unfortunately, I was one of those people who didn’t get any shadow of success in using Squidoo. It was really difficult to get a Squidoo page (they call this a LENS) indexed in the search engines. But still I believe that using Squidoo set me up to become comfortable in writing articles.
Just recently I saw a post by Tracey Edwards where she shared her simple technique of using Hubpages to promote Amazon products. I loved the simplicity of this strategy because this will allow you to test the conversions of a certain product. I mainly build new websites to promote Amazon products and honestly I’m not that 100% sure if they’re going to be successful but I’m very grateful that many of the sites I built have produced some really nice passive income.
Well this morning I published a hub page that promotes an Amazon product. I was surprised when I discovered that the hub page is already indexed (less than 12 hours) and is already ranking in the 2nd page for its product name keywords! The awesome thing is that I haven’t built any backlinks yet to that page. I’ve only experienced this powerful indexing and ranking stuff when I get my articles published over at Ezinearticles.com which I’m not using anymore. hahaha!
So right now I’m totally in love with Hubpages.com!
I believe the key to making this work is that you have to find something that has little to no search engine competition. The product that I’ve found has just been release a couple of months ago and there are still a few affiliates that are promoting it. Also try to choose a product that has a potential of getting noticed by their audience. For example in the product that I’ve promoted there were already 10 detailed product reviews from passionate consumers.
I’m comfortable in building my own websites but it can also be a good strategy to test products first before building a website for that product. And you test products by putting out content and getting them to rank quickly in the search engines. This can also be a really good way to get in front of trend traffic and get some easy sales.
I’m planning to write a free little manual that will contain some more details on how I approach this and so make sure you’re subscribed to my mailing list. Although it will take a few weeks before I know what really works and what doesn’t. That’s it for now. I suggest that you go over to Hubpages.com (or even Squidoo.com) and publish your first content then follow it by building some backlinks. If there’s any questions then please feel free to ask and I’ll do my best to answer them.
