A Plugin That Increases Click Through Rates

There is a very good reason why many bloggers are not making sales and that is because they have a low click through rate. After all, it stands to reason, unless people click on your affiliate links you’re just not going to make any sales. Like most bloggers I would write a post with what I hope are strategically placed affiliate links using what I hope are the right keywords to encourage people to click on them.

Unfortunately that’s where it ends. I don’t worry about split testing the anchor text links inside the blog content because it’s all too hard. This is a real shame because  even though I know certain anchor text keywords can lead to a substantial click through rate over other anchor text phrases I don’t have the time or inclination to work out what ones work the best.

This is where WP Linkizer comes to the rescue. This game changing WordPress plugin will {WP Linkizer} giving you the best results possible. I’m using it right now in this post! It’s the link after the bouncing link which is only possible because of the Sore Thumb Plugin. As you can see from the image below I have been using it for awhile. Clicking on any of the images will show you a bigger one so you don’t have to strain your eyes trying to read the data.

How To Make Money Blogging Practice Makes Perfect

Blogging For Money

I admit that blogging has become part of my life and I feel that I am pretty good at it, but this has not always been the case. If you were to read my initial posts on Well Blog Me you will see that the quality there falls far short of what I’m able to put out today. In those days I didn’t know what the heck I was doing and the only reason for even writing the posts was to get Google’s attention to increase the PR of my site. Yep, I had absolutely no idea of SEO and mistakenly thought that as long as I continually updated that blog Google would fall in love with me and give me and start sending heaps and heaps of traffic.  :wallbash_tb:

Still, I’ve come a long way since then and the main reason for that is I never gave up and I learned a very important lesson. It’s far better to write for people than it is to write for the Googlebots. This is because they’re the ones you’re wanting to attract with you brilliance and if you can do that Google will start to notice you. I made a lot of mistakes but I kept at it and I now consider myself a proficient blogger. It’s kind of like riding a bike, you may fall off a few times but once you get the hang of it you never forget. However, even when it comes to bike riding there are those who excel and the reason they do this is because they push themselves to extremes. Take these freestyle motorbike stunt riders for an example.

Buyonlinelottotickets.com And How It’s Performing

Buy Online Lotto Tickets went live on May 25, 2011 which is a little over a year ago and I thought you guys would probably be interested in how it’s been performing. Before I get into exactly how much money it’s generating I think you should keep in mind that it wouldn’t have generated any money the first few months because, as with any new site, it takes a while to get noticed by the your everyday surfer.

Something else to keep in mind is that this site does not use any type of adsense ads at all and so all money made on the site is from lottery sales and the occasional advertiser. For the purpose of this post I’ll only be talking about lottery sales. Something else to keep in mind is the site is still relatively new and I’m still working at building it’s traffic, which as you know is the lifeblood of any site, Speaking of which, let’s have a gander at some traffic stats.

BuyOnlineLottoTickets.com Traffic Stats

google analytics year

The first image shows traffice from May the first 2011 until end of August this year. That spike where it received 935 visits in March of this year was due to the huge US Megamillions jackpot where three people won over $200 million each.

Google August analytics

 The above graph shows last month’s daily traffic results. The highest was 33, the lowest 5 and the average daily visit was 12. I’m sure you agree that 12 visits a day is pretty dismal and one should consider that when analysing the income generated by the site.

Income Generated By Lottery Affiliates

Rather than lumping all the revenue together I’m going to itemise it depending on the relevant affiliates I’ve joined.

  • MyLotto.com: $124.15
  • Lottery Affiliates: $301.60
  • lottorewards: $54.60
  • PlatinumAffiliates: $13.51
  • JackpotMania: $41.98 Pretty good considering I only joined them in the middle of June this year. The good results are probably due to the fact they have a way of utilising PayPal to purchase tickets online.
  • LottoElite: Only Joined these guys last week. They look very promising as they seem to offer PayPal as a means of purchasing lottery tickets online.

That gives a grand total of $535.84. Considering the age of the site and the low traffic I am very happy with those results. When you consider the fact that every time you gain a new lottery customer they are your’s for life that means that the income will continue to increase with each new member.

 Become An Affiliate To Increase Your Income

Just so you know you do not have to have a lottery site to become a lottery affilate. You could join any of the above sites and start making money by promoting them on your blog. I know there will be a lot of you that think it won’t work on their blog but then you’re not allowing for impulse sales as I described in that post. The important thing to remember is that every time someone joins by clicking on your link they will become your customer for life. This means that every time they buy a ticke you will get commission. That’s so much better than waiting for someone to click on an adsense ad or something.

If you have any questions at all just leave me a comment and I’ll see if I can answer them for you.
