    What everyone with a self replicating web site should know and why they are losing traffic!
    by Britt Phillips

    If you are a member of an affiliate or resellers program, and you were given
    a web site or web page from which to promote the program, you should pay
    very close attention to this article. It will open your eyes to why it is almost
    impossible to get the search engines to give you a high ranking.

    99.9% of all affiliate programs which offer a web page or web site as part of
    the joining package, give what is referred to as a "self replicated" site or
    page. This means it is a page or site that is identical to every other member
    also in the same affiliate program with one very small exception. The only
    difference between all the pages is your affiliate number or email address.

    This is search engine suicide and despite what you may have been told, if
    you think you are ever going to get far trying to get these type sites listed
    high in the search engines, it will never ever happen. You will get further
    paddling a boat across the lake with a huge hole in it!

    The reason affiliate groups give these types of pages out, is because it is
    very easy to generate them using a script from their web site. The main
    objective for most of these affiliate type companies is to get as many people
    signed up as possible into their program. The more people they have
    signed up, the more overall sales they will generate for the company.

    I'm not saying that all programs aren't good, many are. If you want to
    discover however how to pick the right resellers or affiliates program,
    go to...

    Here's why the affiliated or "self replicated" pages are no good for you and
    how to easily get around the very serious problem.

    Depending upon how long you have been on the Internet, you may have
    heard the term "mirror page". A few years ago, someone decided it would
    be a smart idea to take their index page (main page of a web site) and
    create multiple copies of it. They left everything on the page the same and
    just kept making copies like index1.htm, index2.htm, index3.htm etc. The
    next thing to happen was they upoaded all these copies to their web server
    and submitted each of these pages to the search engines. The results were
    pretty good until the search engines figured out what was going on. The
    search engines started working on ways to prevent this from happening to
    make it more fair to the Internet in general. The solution was for the search
    engines to give very poor ranking to those sites which were submited which
    exactly match other pages already indexed within the same search engine.

    The search engines send out what's called a "spider" or "robot" to index
    your web site when it has been submitted. This is all automatically done and
    can instantly tell when deceptive things like mirror pages are in place. The
    result is very poor ranking and huge loss of potential traffic and income.

    Ok, now that you understand this, can you also appreciate that a search
    engine cannot tell a mirror page from a self replicated one? Now do you
    also see why using up energy and time to try and get these types of pages
    highly ranked in the search engines is a complete waste of time? I hope so!

    Lead in (sometimes called splash) pages are pages that will greatly
    improve your affiliate type web sites ability to generate traffic. You create a
    page that is put together properly in terms of design, layout, and has the
    proper advanced meta tags. Then you submit the lead in page to the search
    to the search engines! There are several samples on our site to give you an
    easier idea of exactly how effective this is.

    By using a lead in page to promote and submit to the search engines, all
    web traffic will be drawn to this page first. The search engines will also rank
    this page much higher than it would ever have ranked the self replicated
    page. A lead in or splash page is a must for every sefl replicated web site.

    A word about meta tags. Meta tags are crucial to your web pages success.
    99.9% of all self replicated web pages do not have any meta tags! It is also
    impossible for you to get ranked within the search engines without the
    proper use of meta tags. There are about seventeen advanced meta tags
    that you should have programmed into every web page in your web site.

    The search engines are looking for very specific things. If you give the
    search engines exactly what they seek, you will enjoy far greater search
    engine ranking than those who do not. It is just that plain and simple.
