I'm currently doing some testing with different approaches and trying to increase my Conversion Rate.

These are my stats until now:

Pass-protected file on free sharing site: 12.9% CR and 21,1% CTR

Widgets on my own domain: 7.4% CR and 25.9% CTR

I'm currently testing the rates if I redirect the visitors from my site to the PPD network download page. Will keep it that way for a 3-4 days until I collect some nice amounts of stats and compare to the others. After that I will try two more methods: pass-protected file on my own domain and the other is creating my own download page and use widgets. I'm trying to collect as much info as I can and optimize the conversion process and squeeze as much money as I can from the traffic I get. So what are your method of conversion and what are your current CR and CTR. Let's help each other and get as much money as we can from our traffic.
