Fridays with Vicky 37
As bloggers some of us look for different ways to monetize our blogs.
Affiliate marketing can be a very profitable way to monetize, if you run a mom blog for example.
As affiliate marketers we connect people with solutions. Through quality, relevant, content we provide solutions to our readers problems. Sometimes that happens to be a product.
There are many different types of mom blogs, that`s the beauty of them. In this article we will take a closer look at affiliate programs for mom bloggers that include food, craft, parenting, education and beauty.
Keywords Will Help the Search Engines Find Your Content
If you want to rank in the search engines, like Google, to receive organic traffic, using keywords will highly benefit you. Today we will not only look at the affiliate programs but also some keywords that you can rank for within each niche.
If you are not working with keywords yet or want more information on the topic I suggest reading– keyword research explained.
Topics like food, craft or parenting are too broad for keyword targeting. Below I give an example with each topic where I narrow it down and find a very specific niche that can be used.
I use a tool called Jaaxy to do my keyword research. I`m not going into details about the tool, but if it`s got a green button next to the keyword it`s a “go” yellow means “ok” and red means “hard to rank for”.
Some of the programs suggested requires you to sign up with an affiliate network like LinkShare/Rakuten or Commission Junction. Some of them are independent. Let`s dive in..
Let me just make it clear that these are not affiliate links.
32 Affiliate Programs for Mom Bloggers and Some Keywords to Go With It
Recipe / Food Bloggers
The key is to dig deeper and be specific when it comes to keyword research. Trying to rank for a keyword like ”recipe” is going to be very hard, because of the competition. But if you target-in on longer keywords that are more specific, then you will find people searching for exactly that phrase. It will also be less competition and easier to rank for.
Let me give you an example. Let`s take ”birthday cake recipe”, that`s still pretty broad but ”train birthday cake recipes” and “best birthday cake recipe” are more specific and very targeted. That`s potential keywords I would go after if I blogged about cakes or recipes.
Food Affiliate Programs to Take a Look at
Education is another huge topic and targeting in on very specific areas will help, if you want to rank in the search engines. In the below keyword example, I started searching on math and drilled down to find these math related keywords. Who doesn`t want fun math games, right?

10. ABC mouse fun online learning for young children age 2-7.
11. Mathway, online math help.

In this case I narrowed my keyword search down to a holiday and to a specific type of craft, paper craft.

15. Joann fabrics and crafts.
16. Creative bug workalongs.
17. Annie`s craft store.
18. Craftsy online classes, kits and supplies.
19. Crochet patterns.
As parents a lot of us have wondered “how to get your baby to sleep through the night”. That`s also a keyword phrase you could go after if you blog about baby sleep. Narrow it down to specific topics relevant to your blog.

Hope that this gave you some suggestions and some new ideas. You should always focus on the quality of the content for your readers. It doesn`t hurt to help the search engines, by using keywords, so that they can find your content. By using keywords I mean adding them to the title and first paragraph for example. No keyword stuffing.
