For anyone who has been following, I posted a thread or two a while back about how I was using Amazon product links in my own website.
However I am doing it differently than the normal text. I am using my own hosted pictures of the products on my own domain, in key word named folders and named images.
I then also add my own hyperlinked text below each image. Finally I fill in the product page with 300 or so words about the product to dilute the high keyword density and give the page more bulk.
The items I recently added was Disney snow globes. I made several different pages of them with each major Disney character in it's own page.
Now, if you search for "Disney snow globe" "Disney tinkerbell snow globes", "Disney princess snow globes" and a dozen other key words like that, you will see my pages listed on the 1st page of Google.
My own C-panel stats in my stats page show dozens of keywords typed in that people used to find my pages. So, it does work, and LOTS better than their Astore.
The Astore gives you no SEO at all. Google does not see the text you see when you look at items in the Astore. Google only sees that one line of code you put in your page, it does nothing.
I'm working on Disney figurines now.
Great tips, will give it a try. When I googled Disney snow globes, lakerieartists hub came up on the first page, I wonder if she is using your tips.
Thanks. No, she made that hub long before I even joined I think. The technique I'm talking about you can't use on a hub.
You can only use it on your own hosted domain website. It's the combination of Google seeing the images are on your domain, plus the keywords in your text.
I used to work at Disney in Paris and I loved the snow globes, especially the big ones!
That's great, Bill! Can this technique be used on a blogger blog? BTW - is Orlando Inside! your site?
Hi Lily. Yes that is my site.
Hmmmm, can it be used on a blogger blog? Well some of it can, but not all. See, I think the main reason this works is that the SE's see that the named, key word rich image files come from the same domain as the page.
You can't make your own image folders on Blogger, you can just use the image paths. So the SE's will see the images as coming from another domain.
However you would still have all those image key words on your page, plus the key word text. So it would help, but still not be as good as your own domain, hosted on your own server.
Hmmm - makes sense. Thanks for your explanation. I do like the look, though, and may try out some posts on my blog in a similar manner (different products)...

I knew it couldn't be that good forever, but I am concerned that it's Healdove that seems to be getting hit.

I know that several hubbers here set up separate web sites under domain names they own themselves. I would appreciate any feedback or advice on the best way to do this especially for people (like me) who aren't total...

"Paranoia" must think some of you, and honestly, I used to think the same. I didn't even believe that this was possible, even though Google mentioned that they have ways to detect link spamming. But the...

I have a few hubs that rank very low in Google search despite providing quality content and being very relevent. How do I improve their page rank? is it the keyword density ? do urls have a part to play in it ? is it...
