As a new affiliate marketer I have woundered which strategy would work best for marketing affiliate products.
1. To purchase a domain name and estabilish a new website and spend hours adding new content on a daily basis in hopes of gaining a top page ranking for your product
2. To purchase a domain name and then mask and forward that domain name to an affiliate link and hope that the search engines will find our website from the keywords that were listed when you forwarded the domain. And a puzzeling question for me any way, is how would you tract the forwarded domain to see how many visitors you were getting.
I recently purchased two very similar domains for a new product to be lauched in the very near future, and one of them I masked and forwarded to an affiliate link, submitted the url to Google and Bing, the other I set-up as a WordPress Blog and have posted some content to the site. I used the exact same keywords for both sites. I guess now the waiting game begins to see if I can tell which site is ranking higher and getting more traffic
