Hi. Everyone. I made money Clickbank and Amazon affiliate several years ago.
From begining, I built a ton of review sites but almost of them were dead due to Google algorithm.
And I've moved to use to Youtube as one of my most traffic method in 2 recently years.
Yes, YouTube is the 2nd search engine network. Eventually, my YouTube videos never got any affects from Google algorithm because it's belong to Google.
I could build unlimted backlinks to every videos.
- How did I use YouTube as my most traffic source ?
I built a ton of YouTube authority channels. Why ? It is similiar to Authority site, Google/YouTube would love them.
+ Choose a niche or subniche: you can search Google for EverGreen niche to start. And create a channel for that niche.
+ Research profitable keywords: you can use some free tool as: Google keyword Tool, Signup or Login to view earning guides for mobile apps and websites., or Signup or Login to view earning guides for mobile apps and websites. ...and some paid tools. But it's enough for me to use only free tools.
+ Create videos: I used very simple videos as slides or I used some paid animated video softwares to create a ton of YouTube videos easily as: EasySketch, Doodly, Explaindio.... Some time, I hired a freelancer on Fiverr for create a video testimonial If needed.
+ Ranking YT videos: Yes, it's really easier than ranking a niche site. My first choice to rank a keyword that already had YouTube videos on 1st page of Google. It would demonstrate that I also have an ability to rank my YT videos on Google to get more traffic. To rank a YouTube video, I used both On page & Off Page.
I will not talk much about On Page because you can research it from Google. For Off Page ranking: I used Signup or Login to view earning guides for mobile apps and websites. that you could hear about this software before. You will not be afraid of google penalty. The problem that how many videos that you can create. When a channel become to authority with a mount of subscribers, I eventually didn't need to care about the On Page & Off Page ranking. That's really cool.
Beside that I also use some other softwares to automate my working process as Traffic Titan. You can read more about this at my blog Signup or Login to view earning guides for mobile apps and websites..
