Google is the single biggest source of traffic on the web. I'm going to show you why you dont need it. Thats right I will show you how you can start getting loads of visitors to your site without having to worry about your position on Google, Yahoo and the other search engines. You can avoid all the mumbo jumbo and acronyms for acronyms and just start getting visitors to your site.
When you take your first steps out into the world of affiliate marketing it is all too easy to get over obsessed and brain washed by the search engines. All you hear is people talking about the top position on google and the first page on yahoo, SEO (Search Engine Optimization), SEM (Search Engine Marketing), PPC (Pay Per Click), Sponsored, Natural, Organic and lots of other fancy words and acronyms. Its enough to drive a perfectly sane person crazy.If you search google for Affiliate Marketing you get almost 15 million search results. Yes thats right, 15 million different webpages all trying to compete for that golden nugget called 1st place. The Times Newspaper in the UK ran a article about Google in comparison to the other search engines and came up with some interesting information. Out of all the searches performed each day on the web Google is used for approximately 70% with Yahoo following a very distant second. So Google is definitely the king of the castle. If you manage to get your webpage on to page 2 of google; which lets face it is pretty good and takes a lot of work, you will only receive 1% of the search traffic. What does this mean? For every 100 people who search for a given keyword in google only 1 of them will look at page 2. The other 99 do not get past the first page.So if you are not on page 1 of Google you are not going to get massive amounts of visitors, thats the cold hard truth. The problem with this is that getting to the first page of Google takes a lot of time, hard work, experience and skill nor does it happen overnight.Now the good news. You don't need Google. Yes thats right I am telling you to discard the biggest traffic source on the web. but why?
