Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Ironically any page with adsense is doing well still but if a page has even one affiliate offer from any of the well known programs the page receives ZERO traffic, maybe 1 visitor a month if I'm lucky.Now, that is an exceedingly interesting observation! Would you share which affiliate programs are those? Or at least what type if you're not comfortable with posting names. Like search-related (like one whose name ends with "itika"), in-text links, smart widgets of some kind, etc.?
I just found out I had an unatural link profile message in Webmaster Tools from Sept 2011.
I suspect you had better start here.
Would you share which affiliate programs are those?It's all of the major networks including Google's own affiliate network. I have offers on a more established site that get traffic to similar pages so I suspect it's an authority issue. Sites with more authority can get away with more, apparently.
It's all of the major networks including Google's own affiliate network.I was afraid that name will come up... I've had some really bad things happened to my sites last year a week or so after rolling out Google's own affiliate network ads. There's not good way to know for sure if it contributed but I won't ever be using GAN network again. I haven't earned a penny from it anyhow.

How about a combination of platforms, blogs, forums, article marketing, directory listings, but from sites that are relevant?
