Hey guys,

  • Tim Capper: Provide outstanding content which attracts readers, who will then click on your affiliate links.

    You are going to have to find a super niche to have your voice heard above all the other affiliate sites.

    join communities and groups to start some engagement

    Now for the launch:
    Titles of all pages - unique and compelling, to attract searchers in the SERP's
    Accurate and insightful meta descriptions.

    Make sure your site structure provides the best possible route for search engines.

    If you have paginated pages - rel prev and rel next
    If you are using tags - noindex follow
    If pages go into multiple categories (be careful of this).

    Create a Google+ Brand page and connect site with rel=publisher.
    Use your rel=author on blog pages

    The list really is quite endless, but this should get you going.

    When site is live, come back and ask for a site review.
  • rankyaseoservices: Tim's insights basically covers many important aspects for your new site (be persistent and stay at it, as with affliates you do need bit of work before you can actually make it really work for yourself). Also, if you are using WordPress or other popular CMS, then many free plugins will do the trick, after that it is matter of working smarter for your backlinks (content marketing)
  • Richie Anderson:  ; ; thanks for that guys.

    Yeah I think I got the niche covered anyways thats the main thing I guess.I have a lot of research to do before i get it going so. Thanks lads :)

    The cuetimes listed on this page are functional while the live broadcast continues and also once Youtube has finished processing the public broadcast. Processing time varies between 6-24 hours. During this period the clip is viewable in full but the cuetimes cannot be relied on.
