A couple of months ago I removed the deal of the day widget by Dealdotcom, due to low performance on my blog. I have recently decided to add it back again.. I will also try and see if I can move it around my blog to see if performance improves.
The reason I decided to add it back again (in my sidebar), is now the blog receives nearly twice to three times the traffic, it is related to my content and lastly because I still feel the Dealdotcom program is a good affiliate program for my related niche.. Interestingly enough I find affiliate programs change performance as your blog moves along or as trends change. I have had times on this blog where hosting related affiliate programs such as my Duoservers Web Hosting have worked well and other times where Pepperjam seemed to perform well. Now it seems Bidvertiser, Cashcrate and Infolinks seem to be my highest earners..
“Hmmm..? I guess this supports the theory that making money online can move in trends depending on what the internet readers want..?”
I will wait and see how Dealdotcom performs, maybe it is there time now for performing well… If you have not heard of Dealdotcom before they are a online company that promotes a new marketing / business / make money online related deals every day. Alot of the time they tend to be mainly ebooks focused on helping web owners at cheaper prices than anywhere else online.. With there affiliate programs if any of these deals are ever purchased by readers you earn a commission. In a way it is a bit like the amazon deal of the day widget, but the deals are totally specific to marketing and building a successful website online and lastly they pay better..
