SEO Benefits for Affiliate Marketing

A recent study by MarketingSherpa has detected that top organic positions are clicked twice more often than top paid-advertising positions: 20 and 10 per cent respectively. And if a site has both top organic and a top paid-advertising positions, the links common click through rate comes to an impressive 60 per cent!

SEO is a separate question when it comes to ready made or pre-populated affiliate stores. When people buy these ready made sites, usually most of their content is duplicated from the merchant’s store (Amazon, for example). Product descriptions, technical details, customer reviews and all other merchant texts are copied either from the merchant or from other resources. And although this is normal taking into consideration the low prices for ready affiliate stores it is not ideal for SEO. But the simple fact is that nobody will write unique quality articles for a site that costs $100. And duplicated content is generally not so good (and sometimes even very bad) for your webstore ranking. So what do you do to get your affiliate site ranking?
