Using affiliates or affiliate marketing is where website owners earn a commission from every sale of a product they feature on their website. This is commonly done through “Top 10” articles that link to assorted marketplaces.

The idea is to drive high-quality and relevant traffic to a website in the hope that they will make a purchase from which the website owner can earn a percentage. Affiliate websites are great side projects for many people working in SEO and allow them to make additional, passive income.

There are many great ways to get into affiliate sites, and doing so can also be a great way to learn SEO and start experiments. In my experience, the best affiliate sites find their niche, stick to it really well, and provide genuinely helpful content to their audience.
