Best Black Friday Deals

Best Corporate Business Gifts - Shop Now




Like every Black Friday or long before it, my inbox becomes flooded with
holiday offers, coupons, doorbusters and bargains. I comb through
all these offers and place the best ones on my webpages.

Like years past, there are some excellent savings to be had, if one
acts fast and manages to snap up any of the limited doorbreaker or
doorbuster items. Bit hectic, but shopping online does beat camping
out in the cold.

Best Dell Black Friday Deals


I have spent the last few days updating numerous pages on this site
with the latest Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals and coupons. Mainly
my Corporate Business Gifts Pages and my Dell, HP and Alienware laptop
coupons pages – there are some great deals to be had if you’re in the
market.

Hot holiday items this year include the tablet devices such as iPad, iPad
mini, Surface and the Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook. Smartphones are again very
popular, with the Samsung Galaxy S3 giving the Apple iPhone a run for
its money.

Black Friday Deals & Online Marketing

Besides making a few bucks, these holidays are an affiliate marketer’s
dream come true, what I really enjoy is all the marketing behind the
scenes. Creating graphics, writing press releases, doing viral marketing,
trying different PPC campaigns… and the list goes on.

Working out an advertising budget and sticking to it is perhaps the
hardest rule to follow. The more you spend in advertising, the more
you will earn – especially during these holiday buying events such
as Black Friday and Cyber Monday. However, there is a fine line and
you don’t want your business to end up in the red on Black Friday
of all days.

This year I am putting more emphasis on social bookmarking sites
like Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Even though I don’t
find that kind of viral traffic half as good as search engine
visitors… for me at least, search engine and PPC traffic converts
much better into a sale.

The only exception – if you can manage to get the social traffic
to subscribe to one of your newsletters or marketing funnels – then
your chances of achieving better conversion rates go way up. Customers
buy from people they know – so establishing a good relationship is crucial,
especially in the online world.

Best Black Friday Alienware Deals

While Black Friday and Cyber Monday are excellent times to pick
up that perfect holiday gift at the best price, it is also an excellent
time to do online marketing and test out new strategies.

Now if you will excuse me, I have to go back to monitoring my
Black Friday traffic in Real-Time in Google Analytics.

Happy Shopping and Happy Marketing Everyone!

How To Redirect Your Affiliate Links


As I told you last week, Google judges the quality of your content
and if your site or content triggers a penalty – your site drops
from page 1 to page 3 or beyond. In other words, your site and content
becomes worthless in regards to getting very valuable targeted search
traffic from Google.

Now, while Google hasn’t come out and actually said they don’t like
affiliate sites… they definitely don’t like sites with too many
affiliate links and very little “value-added” content. I do believe
having too many affiliate links, especially above the fold or at the
top of your pages, will hurt your rankings post-panda.

As I also told you last week, by simply hiding or masking my affiliate
links on one site, I brought my Google rankings back from page 6 to
the top of page 2… not quite back to the first page where they were
pre-panda, but search traffic and sales have increased which is the
goal.

For years, most webmasters and affiliate marketers have been masking
or hiding their affiliate links. In the case above, I was using a
meta-refresh script which is a very bad move in the eyes of Google
because many browsers can’t read it and your pages turn up blank.
A site which shows a lot of blank pages is obviously not of the
best quality!

There are many ways to hide your affiliate links, as in my site above,
I used 302 redirects which doesn’t pass link juice. Since these are
affiliate links there’s no need to pass the PR pagerank juice to them.
Now if you want to pass link juice, you have to do a 301 (permanent)
redirect.

One very simple way to mask your affiliate links is to create
a php page or redirect.

For example, here is URL or link

http://yourdomain.com/recommends/affiliatelink.php

Now you would have a php page on your site which
would contain the following:

< ?php header( 'Location: http://affiliatelink1.com' ) ; ?>

For example, if you had an affiliate link for hp laptops
then you would have a page entitled hplaptops.php and your
affiliate link would be placed in the ‘Location:’ in that
short script. Where ever you want to place that link on
your page you would have to use:

http://yourdomain.com/recommends/hplaptops.php

Now, if you’re like me and have hundreds or even thousands of
affiliate links on a site. Creating a php file or page
for each link can be time-comsumming and a real hassle.

I did some searching on the web and I found a free script
which saves a lot of time because you have all your affiliate
links on the one page. This script is from www.stevedawson.com
and you can find it below:

http://www.stevedawson.com/articles.php

There are many other versions of this “array” type script for masking
your affiliate links but this one works for me and it’s free. One major
benefit, if one of your affiliate links becomes outdated or is changed…
you just have to make one change on this page to fix the problem, instead
of manually changing hundreds of links on countless pages on your site,
been there, done that.

Now one final note, many SEO experts say you should stop Google from
indexing these affiliate links. While it doesn’t completely block Google
from indexing them, if they find the same links elsewhere on the web.

It will help to insert this into your Robots.txt file.

User-agent: *

Disallow: /jump.php/

This will stop the Google and the search engines not to index the
page containing all your affiliate links. Keep in mind, this page where
you keep all your affiliate links can be named anything, like ‘recommends’,
‘go’ or even ‘links’.
