3. Unless you increase traffic in your blog it will be difficult to earn money through affiliate marketing. The traffic in your blog will determine the amount of money you’ll earn. If you do not have enough traffic in your blog then Search Engine Optimization help to build traffic once it ranks top on the first page of the search engines.

Try to optimize the pages of your blog by using SEO specific keywords. If you’re promoting beauty products then prepare content that will be relevant to it.
