    I am fairly new to affiliate marketing.

    As my title suggests I am considering the ability of on-site search engines. I will focus my attention on Facebook, Squidoo, Pintrest and photo sharing websites as different examples.

    What amount of traffic is actually picked up on these on-site search engines ? Would you say that some people might get as high as 3% of all there traffic from first time searchers to there pages ? Lets assume here everything is well SEO optimised for arguments sake.

    I am not sure whether this is an intelligent question or not yet with my experience.

    Any opinions are greatly excepted.

    Social media gets about 5% of the targeted traffic you need. All you have to do is keep up with it. Make it interesting, the designs eye catching, the contents informative. And as you know you give the link that directs to the website.

    Best regards,
    Aaron

    High Aaron to clarify are you talking about Google or directly from the social media search box with the first time searchers. Also are you talking about people being referred by sharing etc.

    I am looking for a general guess on just the new searchers via the social media search boxes.

    I am of course aware it depends on the market and the niche perhaps. But I think its all mainly coming from Google and no more than 10 % from the actual social media search box. Even if it was facebook and laptops for example. So my guess would be it is anything from 0.5 % - 10 % depending on niche.

    Is that about accurate. Am I better served in a web analytics forum perhaps. As for some people its to much detail to expect a reply for ? Many thanks David.

    If your content is relevant to the social theme and people use their search boxes for further information, then why not.

    How effective social media can be depends on what you're an affilliate for. Pinterest is great for products which target women and can make great pictures, LinkedIn is great for b2b and and local lead generation, Facebook is great for building a brand (but bad for sales)...

    You're out of luck though if you're an affiliate for something like a yeast infection product though...

    You need to think about what your product is, and where they hang out on the internet. Then go there...
