The Google Affiliate Network is Google’s attempt to enter the affiliate marketplace. The Google Affiliate Network, through the use of Google Accounts, quickly and simply connects advertisers with content publishers. While Google may not be the first or only affiliate service available, Google brand name recognition has attracted thousands upon thousands of advertisers to a single network. With thousands of advertisers and millions of products all encompassed in one affiliate network, monetization of a website has never been easier.
Many affiliate marketers often find themselves with a great keyword and an awesome niche only to be left high and dry because they cant find reliable affiliate advertisers or products to promote on their webpage. Thanks to the Google Affiliate Network you can quickly search thousands of advertisers and millions of products all in one convenient directory. Gone are the days of having to painstakingly go through several different affiliate programs, all to find that one great product.
Much like other affiliate networks, Google allows you to make a general account and apply to individual advertisers with you general information. By doing so,Google saves you hours of monotonous work that applying to individual companies would have otherwise caused. Upon signing up for a Google Affiliate Network account, publishers instantly have access to thousands of advertisers. While applying is a simple as one click, not all advertisers will accept new accounts, but a vast majority will. If your turned down for a particular advertiser or product, try focusing on other areas and growing your reputation with the Google Affiliate Network and try applying again after waiting a few weeks.
The Google Affiliate Network makes monetization a breeze. Now when you have any great idea for a website, you can research your niche and keywords, publish your content, find a product, and be making money before you know it.
Possibly its best feature, The Google Affiliate Network cleverly breaks down your commissions so you can see exactly what you will be getting paid. Before you apply, or even after you have been accepted, Google provides you with numerous statistics and analysis of the company or product. Google will give you the company or product’s website address, a brief rundown of the company and its operations, how the commission is broken down and how you will get paid, the companies guidelines for marketing their product/s, and a great breakdown of the company’s key demographics, that is which kind of people visit their website and purchase their product/s.
While there are countless upsides to using the Google Affiliate Network, thousands of companies and products in one directory, the trust and brand recognition that comes with using a Google product, and in-depth analysis of the company, its products, the commission structure, and demographics, there is one major downside. The Google Affiliate Network does little in the ways of showing or teaching you how to market specific advertisers or products, leaving the market open to only those with vast amounts of knowledge or a little bit of luck.
