    Ok, title says it all. Basically I had a niche like 2 weeks before ranked in the first page and I was second, had like 400-500 visitors and 80-90 clicks, made $100 that day.


    Since 3 days ago I got 1st in google, I have like 500 visitors per day and I have just 30 CPA clicks, the hell is wrong? Page is manually translated by a french guy, everything is good, the niche is good. I was using this niche for over a year, always been GREAT.


    I basically have an archive on the site right now, people downloads it, they get into the Password.txt, then get on the CPA link to download the password.


    What do you think it's better, to put the CPA link directly on the site? Or use archive like I do now?


    Thanks a lot!

    The best thing to do would be to split test and see which performs better for you. It's very difficult for anyone to give this sort of advice especially since we can't see your website! (and you should not post it)

    Password method decreases number of clicks A LOT and increases your CR. Try sending them directly to a link locker and see what happens.

    Everything on your site functions same as before?

    Problem isn't the SEO, check your site.

    Every extra click reduces conversions, and that's why the goal of every affiliate website should be to send their visitors to their affiliate offers in the lowest possible number of clicks. A direct CPA link will greatly improve your conversion rate.

    This is extremely wrong and should be edited out.

    OK, the CTR is so f****d up ... Look here guys: http://gyazo.com/a0bb1b8176f553c7ead8edb3eabf88ab

    Any ideas what should I do? Remember, this is the same site that was converting very well, niche is top notch, everything is perfect on my site. Still using the password method.

    This is happening since a few days, my friend. I'm using this niche since a few months, but it's always been good. It still is. :)

    By the way, seems like this is happening ONLY on france. On the other countries, everything is fine. Maybe something wrong with the offers? :) I just left my affiliate manager a message as well.
