    Hello

    I am a new member here, although I have been reading around here for a week.

    I have decided to have another go at affiliate marketing, using wordpress blog(s)
    (have tried this some years ago, with not much success, mainly due to bad keyword research).

    I hope some of you can answer a few questions I have or simple tell me DO or DON'T, as I find many guides and tips to be very different on approaches.

    Questions:

    1. Keyword research - Finding a keyword phrase that has minimum 20k global searches and few direct search results (max 1000), using google search and the keyword phrase in quotes "".

    I found a keyword phrase with 27K+ global searches on just 4 results searching the keyword phrase in quotes eg. "my keyword phrase". Domain name is available.

    Is this a keyword phrase that I would be good to start out with?

    2. Getting google rank - With the above mentioned keyword phrase, would it be easy to rank high (fast) on google, using unique content with KW optimised posts? I can update daily with already made posts.

    3. Backlinking - How should I start backlink process? Should I start a linkwheel, blog commenting or purchase a decent SEO pack?

    4. Traffic and sales - When traffic comes, does anyone have some good ides to how and where to add affiliate links? Is reviews is best way, or adding banners within content, sidebar efficient?

    I hope someone can give a few pointers here, and tell me if I'm of to a good start or I should go back to my keyword research.

    You can generate some traffic using digg, reddit and various other social networks, but for the long haul, link building and perhaps adwords (if your money site is well branded etc) is your next logical step. Lots of good SEO packages on this site. Be logical about them and don't be fooled by pseudo terminology.
