Affiliate marketing is a great way to make money online. Attracting more traffic can enhance your chances of growing your affiliate marketing business.

Entrepreneur contributor Thomas Smale has shared four ways to get more traffic to your affiliate sites.

Smale says, “Keep in mind that even if your content is already generating traffic, the traffic you’re generating may not be the right kind. Your goal should be to attract shoppers. And, to do that, you need to optimize your website for shoppers. Here are four steps you can take to begin attracting more targeted traffic to your website.

1. Optimize for keywords with commercial intent.

At first, your content strategy may revolve around choosing keywords that are easy to rank for, or those that will drive a lot of traffic.

While traffic volume is an important metric overall, driving a lot of traffic to your site may not do much to earn you affiliate commissions. And that may mean your conversion rate isn’t very high.

This might result because the keywords you’re using lack commercial intent. This means keywords that buyers are using to search for products they’re interested in”.
