In this edition of the Affiliate Buzz, host James Martell welcomes the return of Arlene to the show! During her time away she has been incredibly busy with their family. As she explains, extra time to spend with family is just one of the many benefits of affiliate marketing!
James and Arlene kick off the podcast by sharing a bit of happy news and then jump right into the topic of building traffic. Learn how 2013 developments with Penguin and Panda, two Google algorithms that directly impacted traffic that reaches websites – and not all the impact is positive.

– Specific examples of affiliate marketers whose sites reach thousands of people each day
– Revenue drops and pagerank penalties that he and Arlene have personally experienced

Next James shares about other affiliate marketers’ attempts to build traffic, as well as which of these succeeded and the ones that failed. If you aren’t sure what will work on your site, then perhaps the professional advice from this industry leader might help!
The Relationship Between Content and Traffic
As James points out, despite the algorithm changes, there are a lot of affiliate marketers who are still finding success in the industry. Working closely with these people and coaching them a good understanding of things like:
– the types of content they’ve created
– what they’ve done to organize their sites
– the source of their substantial amount of traffic
