Take Affiliate Links off your Home Page
Do not put your affiliate program links on your home page.
Well you’ve slaved hard to get your home page ranked at spot number 5 on one of the
major search engines for a popular term.
Your visitor arrives at your site, which loads quickly, only taking a few seconds.
And whammo!
They see a nice little affiliate link right at the top of the
page and click on it. If the link interests them they soon forget which site they came
You may make a commission on a sale from this person but you’ve also have just
missed an even bigger opportunity.
You’ve just made a big mistake.
By not letting your visitor get to know you first, you did not develop any type of
relationship with them. It is unlikely that they will ever come back to your site. Why
should they? They found what they wanted on your site, so there’s no need for them to
come back.
In fact they do not even remember who you are.
