Affiliate Marketing 102: Building a Free Blog that Google Loves

After you decide what to build a blog around it’s time to actually build it. Without going into technical challenges, there is one easy way to do it: sing up for a free wordpress blog at wordpress.com. Your blog url will be something like this: http://yoursubdomain.wordpress.com. From within your account install “all in one SEO pack” plug in, fill in the blanks and it will do all the on site SEO for you.

To keep you in the know, the on-site SEO includes linking all the pages together so that each page is accessible from anywhere on your website with at least one link, and each page is anchor-linked to from all other pages at least once (if possible). Also, the all in one SEO pack plug in changes your urls to include the category, page, and subpage (you can do it manually by changing the permealinks). This structure is known as “silo structure”, which means that the url for each page should look like this: http://domain.com/category/page.html, or http://domain.com/category/subcategory/page.html.

Ok, I know it doesn’t make sense if you’re not familiar with it: here is a diagram for this silo structure:

And here is how to install All-in-One SEO Pack plugin:

This should keep you busy for a while. The next one will be about doing it with Googles Blogger.com. Stay tuned my friend.
