Affiliate Summit West 2010 – Monetizing Blogs for Affiliate Marketing and SEO

Affiliate Summit 2010

Blogging took the front and center stage at today’s Affiliate Summit West in Las Vegas. The day’s events were filled with sessions about blogging and blog blog marketing. The session I attended was call Monetizing blogs for Affiliate Marketing and SEO. The panel of speakers include Drew Bennett of BenSpark, John Carcutt of MediaWhiz, Tim Jones of The Real Tim Jones and Murray Newlands of Affiliate Heat. The panel was moderated by Kirs Jones of Pepperjam Network.

The panel talked a lot about getting traffic from search engines and how to optimize your blog to increase its search engine ranking. Some of the advice was really good, like when John Carcutt recommend you not to have the same name for a tag and blog category.

The second half of the session dealt with how to monetize the blog. Tim Jones hit it right on the head when he said you must treat your blog like a business if you want to make money from it. All the panelist offered some really good suggestions on different ways to monetize a blog.

The panel took questions from the audience after their presentation. Overall, a really good session and I’m glad I attended it. Next, I’m going to head on over to the Affiliate Meet Market and video the action. If you see me, make sure to say hi. You might end up in the video!

    John,
    Thanks for attending the session. I am glad that you were pleased with it. I for one was nervous but enjoyed being able to speak on the topic of blogging. I hope that we provided all who attended with good information.

  10. Are we going to get to see some video or hear some audio?

    1. John Chow says:

      Affiliate Summit does not allow the recording of the sessions.

    I made the mistake of NOT staying at the Rio for last year’s show. Even though the place I stayed at was cheaper, I had to worry about taxi fare to and from my hotel every day – adding up to more than it would have cost me to just stay at the Rio where most of the action was. Will definitely book at the Rio next year for this show, assuming it’s still going to be held there.

  12. Been following Drew (Ben Sparks) and all the feedback from the conference was positive. The blogging community enjoys to help one another become successful at our blogs.
