The PHP Rotator Script has several different uses. In my last post I talked about using it as an advertising co-op link rotator .
Today, I’m going to share with you something you need to be doing anytime you create a website link, a link in a PDF, or a link in an email.
You must always remember to manage your links.
Let’s say you are promoting an affiliate program. You create a Squidoo lens, a Hubpage, a Weebly blog along with a number of other content pages on various services. You place an affiliate link in each one of those pages going to the affiliate products home page.
Some time later you check your Squidoo lens and click to go to the affiliate product site, only to find the product no longer exists. So, you go find another similar product to replace the dead product. Then you change the links in your Squidoo lens, your Hubpages, and…oh know, you can’t remember where else you have content that points to that dead product.
So, you have a number of sites containing content that contain dead links. All of the hard work you went through creating that content has been wasted.
Or, what if you hard coded an affiliate link in a PDF report or ebook. You distribute that PDF all over the internet. Then, the affiliate product owner changes the affiliate link, or starts giving the PDF away for free, or the product site is taken down. Now you have thousands of those PDFs with bad links.
That’s why it’s important for you to manage your links to that you have control over them.
To protect your links, use the HomeBizRotator PHP Rotator Script.
You can do this in two different ways.
1. Add the affiliate link for the product you want to promote to the rotator. Then use the direct link to that URL in your PDFs or on your websites. Then you can change that destination link in the rotator anytime you need to.
2. Use the main rotator URL on your websites and in your PDFs. Then you can change links within the PHP rotator script, to point to whatever site you choose to point them to. Plus, you can test different products by adding several products to the php rotator script and track which products result in the most sales, as they are rotated to visitors.
That’s just one of the uses for the HomeBizRotator PHP rotator script. I’ll provide a few more suggestions in a few days.
