Deep linking affiliate sales has been discussed by John before but I want to emphasize the importance of using this method for long term profits. When you have an existing reader base that reads your unique, daily content they trust your recommendations. Don’t try to fool your readers though because they can see through that too and it is a quick way to lose your reader base. I only deep link products and services when I use the product myself and when I think my readers will get a real value from them. Recently, this has been paying off nicely as more of my site pages get indexed and people find them from search engines. The older and more indexed your site is the better this strategy is. This is delayed gratification at its finest.
It is difficult for people to see the benefits of putting time into deep linking honest affiliate recommendations now. Can it really be worth it for the future? I know most of the population that blogs wants to make money now and there is nothing wrong with that. But consider this, if you are one of the few that is willing to work very hard today and be rewarded for this hard work down the line, then all you have to do is maintain high quality and consistency in your blogging, deep link quality products, SEO your site and don’t quit. If you don’t abandon your site, the profits will roll in for years to come through organic searches.
