Young Affiliate Interview Challenge

This is an interview I conducted with the blogger at, Paul Tizo, for the GatherSuccess Interview Challenges.

Me: Hey Paul. Thanks for doing the interview with me so lets get started right away. Tell us about yourself a little bit.

Paul: Thanks for having me Dino! First I started by joining forums and online news sites. They are the ones that truly opened my eyes to making money online and got me started with my site. After that, it was all about my site and doing numerous different affiliate programs and campaigns every day to get where I am.


Google Adsense Arbitrage Secrets

Here’s an easy make money online method to bring cheap search engine traffic to your webpage by leveraging different keywords of the buyer cycle. You just need to fill it with paid ads like Google’s Adsense program.

The key is realizing that one can gain good CTRs if you send a niche’s search traffic to land on Adsense ads targeting a sub-niche. For example, I can send traffic from the search term “buying a bike” to a landing page that targets a selection of specific BMX bikes. A person searching for “buying a bike” is probably someone who is considering and needing further information about his potential purchase. Directing to a set of targeted Adsense links is both beneficial to their info gathering and makes you a good coin because …


Google Adsense Secret Tips Continued

Make money with adsense just got easier. Read some of these tips below and you will find yourself increasing your adsense revenue like never before! You’ll find out that MSN has the greatest converting traffic simply because its users are the least technically savvy of the 3 major search engines on a statistical level, in my opinion. The key to drawing as much MSN traffic as FAST as possible is to use 1-way links for search engine optimization and you’ll rank high in MSN within a few short weeks at most as long as your topic is not ultracompetitive like weight loss.

You can gather one way links through blogs, forums and one technique that I use: tri-linking. Simply ask a few webmasters if they can link to your site in exchange for you linking to them from one of your other sites. It goes like this: A -> B B -> C where B is his/her site and A and B are yours and site C is what you need the one-way link to…


Exact, Phrase or Broad Match Campaigns?

Exact match keywords means that you place your keywords in brackets [] and only people searching for that exact term will see your ad. So, if your keyword is “blue cars” then your ad will show up only when people type in “blue cars” exactly and not “buy blue cars” or “used blue cars” or even “blue car”.

Phrase matches allow you to access a wider target market. These keywords are contained in quotations “” so, continuing with our same example, “blue cars” will show your ad whenever people type in searches such as “used blue cars”, “big blue car”, “sell blue cars”. On the other hand, your ad will not show up for a search such as “blue used cars”.

Broad match terms are those without delimiters so you would simply type your term in as blue cars. If you don’t add negative keywords your ad will show up for everything from blue cars photos to a blue sedan type car that looks cool.


Easy PPV Profits Review – A PPV Marketer’s Dream!

Most people fail at PPV marketing for several reasons. A few from the top of my head are not testing out enough urls, not testing out different offers with your landing pages, and most importantly of all, having a poorly designed, unattractive landing page for your offers. PPV is a platform of marketing where you have to engage the user to your advertisement and get them to take action.

Unlike PPC marketing, users aren’t interested in whatever you are trying to sell to them, since your actually interrupting the user, you need eye catching landing pages to rake in the big bucks! Most people think that direct linking works, but little do they know that most of the affiliates who take that extra step and market to a particular niche or demographic are getting much higher ROI’s and spending less money. The money is in the details, and landing pages are essential to PPV. So if your no Photoshop expert, nor a javascript programmer, I have just the solution for you today!

What Are Traffic Exchanges?

Traffic exchanges are one of the most misunderstood traffic sources out there. A lot of people will tell you that they don’t work and that they provide worthless untargeted traffic. Nothing could be further from the truth, but as with other methods you have to make them work for you, by using them the right way. First off all we know exactly why people are using traffic exchanges.

They want to make money online, they want free traffic, and they are likely using that traffic to promote a “make money program” of some sort. As you can see the traffic is very targeted if we provide what people want e.g. “how to make money online”, “how to get tons of free traffic”, “how to recruit more people to their biz opp” or any combination of these 3.

Adcenter Slapped My Account Due To Low QBR!

So it finally seems that Adcenter is turning into the new Adwords! Whether we like it or not, this year most affiliate based campaigns will need to be redesigned and adjusted to meet Adcenter’s new QBR (Quality Based Ranking) system. They are not only slapping campaigns, but whole accounts as well and that is exactly what happened to me. 🙁

Looks like I will have to spend a few days on redesigning all my campaigns, landing pages, and making them a bit more relevant and I advise anyone who is running on Adcenter to do the same right now before they slap your account too.

Adcenter QBR

Now the funny thing is, Adcenter gives you no way in knowing your QBR unlike Adwords who tell you right in the campaign your Quality score and gives you ways to improve it. Adcenter just slaps your account I guess if they deem you are using to many keywords, irrelevant landing page, or your ads don’t match up.


Free Instant Traffic Method Through Google!

If done right, this method will get you instant, targeted traffic to your site very fast. We’ll use Google Groups to get the traffic. On Google Groups there is a group about anything so your options are endless. It’s very easy to find a google group for your niche. Just go to and search for “iphone”.

After that click on the “Groups matching iphone” link and you will see the exact amount of groups in this niche as well as their activity. You would think that the more members there are the more sales you would make. I have found this to be false. Why? The more members there are, the more activity it will be and your posts will go down faster and people won’t see them.

The result = Less traffic to your website. So what’s the solution? Choose groups with max 500 members. Those work best! Google only allows 15 posts per gmail account a day. This is more than enough because if you post to 15 groups that have around 500 members in them, then that is 7,500 potential targeted visitors.


Choosing The Most Profitable Niche

Contrary to what many people think, building any site on what you like and your interests is not a very good idea. It’s not going to be very profitable. I still can’t figure out why people want to build niche sites based on personal interests. I guess it could get me started with learning Internet basics, but it wasn’t going to build a cash flow. I found out very quickly that there were more profitable markets to build my sites around. Make sure you provide the niche that people want.

Don’t create a product then find the niche, you need to do the opposite, find the niche then supply the product. You need to remember that just because a certain phrase pays well, doesn’t mean you will get a good search engine ranking for it, or that people will be attracted to your page. Should you go after high paying phrases regardless of topic? Just remember not to jump on the phrase bandwagon unless it’s related to your website. Also, make sure it’s something you have a passion for.
