How do you make money through affiliate marketing by getting ranked on Google with actually no website? I will show you how. All you need to do is just apply these basic principles. Read the article below to discover how you can do it too.
Most of the time, when people try to rank on the search engines, they try to rank for a competitive keyword. For example, if you wanted to promote a specific platform or tool or software, let’s say ClickFunnels. If you were to try to rank for a keyword, how does ClickFunnels work? If you try to rank utilizing the traditional method, notice that it’s going to be extremely competitive. However, notice there would be two things on the first page. Number one is search results that direct you to YouTube. And number two, you’ll see that there’s a result from this site, Quora, which is a site that people love to use to ask questions that Google absolutely loves. So in other words, Google sees it as a huge authority. So rather than trying to build this site from scratch, what if you could lend and borrow Quora’s authority?
Does anyone use ClickFunnels? Is it worth it? These questions rank on the first page of Google for the keyword ‘ClickFunnels’. Now, what does Quora use to determine which to rank number one? Two things. Number one would be the quality of the answer. Out of all of the answers, it would be the one with the highest upvotes. Using bullet points is also a plus because it’s easily digestible. Sometimes some of them might even include images. Think about how you can format your posts, how you can add bullet points, how you can add images, and some cases, even utilize videos.
What you need to do on Ahrefs is type in Quora.com and type the keyword that you’d like to research on. For example, becoming an affiliate for Shopify. Do a search and wait for them to give the results of all of the different questions that are posted on Quora about Shopify. This gives you clarity on the different keywords and content that you could be utilizing and creating to rank for, because now you know that there’s a demand for it. At the same time, you could go into all these different recent links, which are the questions that are posted on Quora and are getting visibility, and you can start helping these people by answering their questions. Then from Quora, you will be able to send people either to your link or your website if you choose to.
The whole idea on how to get ranked and make money off affiliate marketing with no website is simple. It could be a website, it could be your YouTube video. Before going to Quora, what you should also be doing is keyword research and this is through Ahrefs and then look at all of the different posts that are on Quora. There could be 1000 questions posted on Quora, and you can look at how recent they are, or how many searches are there. Look at how many comments there are to give you a rough gauge of competition. Look at the ones that are being ranked number one for these different questions. What do they have in common? Do they have this specific theme of how it’s being answered? Are there these bullet points that seem to appear over and over again? Does it link to a specific video? What constantly ranks number one? What is the recurring theme? Ask yourself these questions in order to give me a really good gauge on what it’s proven to work.
Give a really good, concise, detailed reply with good formatting and once you reply, make sure that you get upvotes in so that it gets pushed to number one. Once that happens, the purpose of that is to send people to the next step and this is where if you wanna build something that is longer term, this could be a website where you get their name and email, and then you build a list and build a relationship to your list and then eventually promote an affiliate product where you monetize. That is how the longer route is, but more sustainable because now you’re building a list or you could even send them straight to something that is yours, which could be a YouTube video. Create content that answers questions, and you can have a Call-To-Action (CTA) and a hyperlink that says you actually created a tutorial that answers this in depth. You’re now creating an asset that’s gonna live on for a really long time.
Notice that this gives you really good ideas on these different keywords. This could be your affiliate product. Let’s say if you wanted to promote ClickFunnels, what would you do? Take a look at all of the different URLs and look at the volume. This will give you clarity on what keywords to target so that you can send people over and create a YouTube video and send people to a YouTube video. This YouTube video can also send people to opt in of which you’re now building a list. Then in the follow up email sequence, that is also when you can send people to the affiliate offer, software, product, service, whether it’s a digital product, or a physical product. This is where you could also notice that there’s two things, to do your keyword research and to create content around that keyword that people are searching for.
Finally, I’m gonna give you one last resource that I love utilizing, and this is a free resource. You don’t even have to sign up for anything. It’s called Answer The Public. In Answer The Public, you can type in the keyword to see what people are searching for. You are able to see all of the keywords, for example, how Shopify works. How Shopify payment works, how shopify dropshipping works, how shopify makes money, are shopify apps free, shopify theme, shopify plan, etc. This tells you your keyword research and what kind of content people are searching for so that you can create content that targets this. This also helps you create and rank on YouTube, that is going to appear on Google. Now, you’re no longer required to create your own website and try to rank utilizing the traditional method but rather to leverage on authority sites like YouTube and Quora, and siphon traffic visibility to reach off to either your own content on YouTube or send people off to an opt in, if you choose to or send them straight to your affiliate links.
