As an Amazon Affiliate I bring home a nice income. I get huge traffic from my favorite free site, Squidoo. If you have never used Squidoo, you need to start now. Seriously. I can usually get my Squidoo lens on the front page of Google within a day or two by following these simple steps.
Step #1 Find a product on Amazon that I want to promote. I also choose something that is rated 4 or 5 stars and has lots of customer reviews. This means it's popular.
Step #2 Figure out what people who want to buy this item are searching for. The biggest mistake that people make is to title their page with the name of the item they are promoting rather than what people are typing into the google search toolbar.
For example you may want to promote "baby oragel". If you make a page about baby oragel, you will never make it on the front page of google because of the competition. Instead think about why people buy baby oragel...for teething pain. So then use your keyword tool, I prefer Jaaxy which is awesome. And find out what is a good keyword that has low competition. And then I pick out 2 or three other good keywords.
The first keyword is my title as well as url. The second keyword is the title of my first module, the third keyword is the title of my second module. etc.
Be sure to always write good unique content. With at least 200 combined throughout your page.
Give it a few days and you will start to see some sales. Then repeat it.
I'm writing lenses on Squidoo and would love you to join me
