Money Hack #19 - Link Farms

What the hell is a Link Farm?  No, it has nothing to do with Farmville - it's a way to make money online.

I've mentioned affiliate marketing in the past, and you can make some great side money doing that.  Link Farms take it to the next level.

Essentially the sole purpose of a Link Farm is to get people to come to your site and click on someone's advertisement that makes you money.  How is that different from normal affiliate marketing?  It's very different.

For example - let's say you have a blog about reviewing insurance companies and you list out a top 10 for readers.  You could have an affilliate relationship with ALL ten companies.  The great thing about insurance companies is that they pay out PER LEAD.  Usually over $100 per lead in fact.

So while people love you and they are reading your information about insurance companies - you are raking in money while they submit insurance quote requests.  Not too shabby.

There are a million variations of Link Farms - but this is an easy way to disguise one.
