Affiliate Summit West 2011 Day 2Nick Throlson
Day 2 started off early I headed to the exhibit hall. I stopped by BlueGlobalMedia booth and shot a quick Q&A with Chris Kay using my Flip Mino. Chris talked about BlueGlobalMedia and how they recently upped the referral program to 7% . He also talked about how they have exclusive offers and publishers do really well with their in house offers such as financial services, “100 Day Loans” is one of the biggest financial offers out there so be sure to sign up with BlueGlobalMedia.
I ran into some of the wicked fire guys Ad Hustler,Pappa John to name a few. Then I decided to go to leverage your brand for affiliate success session with Jim Kukral. Then headed to the blogger lounge to meet up with Syed Balkhi and John Chow. The three of us decided to go to the SEO – Ask the Pros session with Todd Friesen, Greg Bower, Stephan Spencer. They gave some great tips!
- Avoid domains with more than two hyphens as Google considers them spammy.
- Don’t focus too much on exact match keywords. Google is getting good at detecting gaming of exact match keywords.
- Never write any post about how good you are doing in Google.
After the Ask The Pros about SEO session I decided to make my last run of the day through the exhibit hall with John Chow & Syed Balkhi. We stopped by the ShareASale booth and John got a record breaking 750 points playing the ski ball game ShareASale had there.
