Vaughn's One-Page Summaries

Here is the site of the day: Vaughn's One-Page Summaries

Here's why: Vaughn's One Page Summaries is a fine example of a great website. It's a site with a clear purpose (providing one page summaries on a variety of topics, like Google, time and date, and which businesses suck). It's also a site that provides something unique. I don't know of another site which offers the content that Vaughn offers, or at least not in the form that Vaughn offers it.

What's this got to do with affiliate marketing though? To make money with an affiliate website, you need to know how to make a good website. One of the ways to learn to do something is to look at examples. This is an example of a site that covers a wide range of subject, and it possibly even makes a little bit of Adsense revenue. I got a good laugh out of the "which companies suck according to Google" page. Basically Vaughn did searches for "generic company sucks" in quotes for various companies and tabulated how many pages came up. The theory being that if there are a lot of pages built for that search, the democracy of the web has decided that the company really does suck.

Also, just as an example of some of the success Vaughn has seen, his site ranks #1 in Yahoo for "google ranking factors", "google data centers", and "fresno flowers". I didn't have time to check his Google rankings for anything, and I only checked maybe half a dozen sites to see where they ranked. Anyway, it's a great websites and you could learn a lot from it. I'm having some new ideas myself already.
