Great read, but......
on 12 November 2011
For some reason it seems that many online marketing books are, to say the least, overhyped. Although I agree with many of the reviews to date, that this book is crammed with great advice and tips for would be affiliates, it is also fair to say that there are some errors. For example the section on Page Rank contained some fundamental errors in regards to the flow of Page Rank. Indeed the PageRank section reminded me of an eBook that was published a couple of years ago as did some of the other sections of this book. Reading the book, the emphasis seems to be on Clickbank marketing with other forms of online affiliating covered but in reality, only the basics. From reading the book and examining the sites listed it seems that the writer mainly makes her money from promoting Cickbank products, (including her own) plus drop shipping, which again is only lightly covered.
The book, in my opinion needed more information on link building, for example identifying quality links as many of the link sources listed in the book are of little use. Also the book fails to demonstrate how to deal with Google PANDA, which has hit many affiliates hard this year, although in the writer's defence it seems the book was published pre-Panda.
I have never found the perfect affiliate marketing book, although just like the author, I have read everything available over the last 5 years. All in all though a good book for those looking to venture in to the world of affiliate marketing, although not for those with experience under their belt, although I did pick up a couple of new tips from the book.
I would love to see the author write another book detailing the full process of getting a book to print as I do admire her writing style.
