Any advice or feedback would be great.

Welcome to Wizzley, Jane!  Smile 

Although your article features a few personal viewpoints, the topic is of course way over-used on the web, and there's not much new or interesting that can be said about it.

Looking forward to your more unique and exciting stuff.

This time I have to disagree with you, Chefkeem. I had a quick look at keyword and competition plus ranking / search volume and this article does already well in the search engines.

I also think that Jane made some interesting points about cookie length etc that are very interesting for people that are newish to affiliate marketing. And I must say even I learned something from it ;-)

I research the keywords of all my articles, before I publish. You aren't going to do well if you don't. Google sent this article 3 visitors in the first 24 hours, which is always a good sign for an article's earning prospects.

Looking around on Wizzley I get the idea that they prefer smaller niches over larger ones. They would for instance prefer an article about archery, over golfing. Correct me if I am wrong. Perhaps it's an over-all SEO strategy.

And it showed !

I can't comment on what Wizzley's overall SEO strategy is, I leave that to ChefKeem. I think the main fear is with the bad name affiliate marketing often has. Try to put yourself for one second in ChefKeem's shoes, a new author appears asks for a peer review of an article and that article is about affiliate marketing. It kind of kindles the fear that the next article could be about some dodgy clickbank product ;-)

I don't say that is the case with your article, far from it, as I said before, it is very well written and contains information that is useful for newbies as well as for 'old hands'. You are just up against the bad name of 'affiliate marketing' in general, nothing else. What would help is with you make a Wizzography about yourself and tell us a bit more about your expertise. That way people like me that are interested in that particular topic (affiliate marketing) have it easier to find you and others might gain more confidence in what you say and share.

Excuse me, I must really now run off and finish writing my own Wizzography, if not I am in danger of sounding like a hypocrite!

I admit that I might be a bit jaded re: "affiliate marketing" and "make money online" articles. I've seen hundreds of them since we've started Wizzley, and most of them don't offer any new insights, and many of them are outright junk.

Your article is well-written, indeed, and maybe I've over-reacted. Sorry 'bout that, especially if other members find your info to be useful.  Smile

chefkeem you didn't overreact. There was nothing new in this article and I had to correct a glaring error in my original comment.

I was hoping to read an assessment of why the writer experienced great success and financial gain with the best affiliate programs of 2012. Nothing here even reached my Top 100. Actually other than Amazon and Clickbank, no actual programs were discussed.

But most successful affiliate marketers will never give up their best programs. Unless they are two-tiered and hoping to get referral income.

I normally would never comment on a Wizzle like this, but the OP did ask for opinions.

Reading the comments...all that cookie-talk got me hungry. Got milk?

Yes the engineer-husband has connected my keyboard to the generator. The more I type the warmer I stay - the less firewood we need to carry in.

Hey, you should publish an article about this system! I am sure it would be a winner! ;-)
