|Gave up Affiliate Marketing Because of Adwords|
Google's Minimum Keyword Costs Killed Me...But, I will do better now
| 6:19 pm on Nov 1, 2006 (gmt 0)|
Since Google's keyword prices went through the roof, I stopped PPC and affiliate marketing for the most part.
I decided to make alliances with small businesses and generate leads for local business instead.
I am SHOCKED at my keyword costs now. I am now building landing pages the same as before, except there are no affiliate links.
Instead of getting $1 or $5 minimum keywords, I am getting $.04 minimums! And on VERY popular keywords...Lots of search volume.
Is having an affiliate link and/or adsense on a landing page that much of a negative blow to your quality score?
Is this an example of Google sticking it to affiliate marketers?
