SEO pundits have always been divided on the question whether affiliate SEO or client SEO is better. In the case of affiliate SEO, you can select your own hours since you don’t have to answer to anybody.
However, it is not stable and everything can go wrong once a Google algorithm update takes place. In contrast, if you deliver quality work to a client he will be a major source of your revenue. But the time lost in guiding clients can be spent in a better way.
When it comes to affiliate SEO, you don’t need to be concerned about order fulfillment or payment gateways. But you will have to depend upon others to convert sales and provide products and services. In the case of client SEO, there is a continuous flow of cash since clients pay in advance. However, most clients often have unrealistic expectations.
