Most of the time when buyers search for online reviews, they most often go to a search engine like Google and type the product name reviews and then simply click on the result which would look the most appealing and relevant. When you write content that includes the reviews and product name by adding in the keywords, Google sees this and thus places your website in their search engine. So, it’s important that you use appropriate keywords within your content.
As a rule, each review you generate on your website should be having the following:
- Keyword in your title.
- Keywords in the initial paragraphs.
- Afterwards you can write your content naturally and there is no need of focusing on the keywords.
Follow these 3 rules of the thumb and ultimately Google will help you in finding the visitors to your website by placing your webpage in their search engine.
Another way is that you share your content using the social media platforms. Either by posting your reviews on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter you can get connected with a lot of people who use social media.

You can’t merely write one review and then expect money to roll in as that simply will never happen. When you follow all these steps and start writing a number of reviews, you will begin to see the commissions come in. It takes some work, time and patience, but don’t give up because some day you might would be able to make a good amount of earnings.
