  • In my opinion, it would be too big of a statement to make that affiliate marketing is dying because it clearly isn't. As long as people are buying and selling products online in the world, affiliate marketing will continue to prosper. The prospects of the affiliate marketing are changing and definitely not dying. These changes came along with the Google's Penguin algorithm update which forced affiliate marketers to terminate spammed links, offer genuine website content and cease the display of big banners on their websites. This did created a little dip in affiliate marketing activities but they have evolved over time such that today it exists right in front of our eyes.

    Companies like Google and Amazon have a huge network of affiliated marketers. Anyone can publish their ads on their websites and earn commision on each sale. Moreover, with the emergence of social networking platforms like Facebook and Twitter, affiliate marketing has spurred to great heights. As the ads are dependent on the type of the website content being displayed and the current choices of the user, the user gets to see relevant advertisements which in turn engages them.

    Hence, the very purpose of marketing is to attract traffic towards their website, engage users and retain those customers which is being successfully fulfilled through affiliate marketing channels.

  • Although affiliate marketing has witnessed a decline over the years, it's wrong to say that affiliate marketing is completely dead. In order to generate fruitful results out of affiliate marketing efforts, one needs to understand their offer and know the target audience. you can get good traffic on your site via demand-side platforms (DSPs). Since Google's focus is more on quality, it keeps evolving it's algorithm to deliver quality and most appropriate results. Google is forced to make the algorithm more stringent, since thin content and poor quality websites have plagued affiliate marketing for long.

    So, the takeaway is simple, affiliate marketing is not dead, but old methods are. This is perhaps the reason why startups without professional guidance are unable to make the most of their affiliate marketing efforts. Your website should not appear displaying too many ads. The focus should be more on quality content and top-notch user experience instead. Affiliate marketers also must devise effective strategies for search engine marketing and social media marketing to increase conversion rates .

  • Not at all. New Google update is just to make web a better place, to have a better quality content and to remove the spam links. Whereas Affiliate marketing is concerned it is not at all affected as along as it is done in a relevant way. Many ecommerce websites are still earning huge profits using affiliate programs.
