    I'm a newbie and got a free adwords voucher (30 pounds) I used it yesterday and set up my first adword account and campaign, set the daily budget as 15 pounds. The ad drove traffic to my site with the idea of getting adsense and ebay revenue. This morning my adsense account showed 19 pounds all from the adword campaign and eby showed 500 clicks no sales as yet, but still an overall profit not bad for a freebie voucher. Today I thought I would invest the other 15 pounds in adwords direct linking to a clickbank product. now I never used clickbank before but do now about affiliate id hijacking my question is can I cloak my clickbank hop link in the adwords add?


    Thanks

    i think you can buy a domain name (you don't need hosting) and get it to redirect to the clickbank sale page. I have been thinking about doing this too. Anyone confirm this?

    Out of curiosity, where did you get your clickbank voucher?

    Thanks for the quick reply can you give me an idiots guide to how I would do this ? I have a couple of domains not being used at the moment. I got the voucher in this months copy of PC advisor magazine it was just stuck in the mag with a few other bits of advertising

    In domain control panel you should click on the domain name you want to set up to be forwarding, and you should have this option in the next page along with nameservers and other stuff.

    You can no longer do this, google forbid doing this in January 2009, They will approve your ads let run a couple a months and then suspended your account. I got my adwords account suspended a week ago, the only thing that I came up with that I was doing wrong was forwarding domains to clickbank affiliate links.

    You wanna know how to Direct Link to an Affiliate's Landing Page without having to compete with everyone else? You register a URL at GoDaddy, ReDirect & Mask it and point it to your Affiliate Link. This is what Chris Carpenter at GoogleCashDetective is promoting. There's also a way of cloning the merchants Landing Page and storing it as a .php file so that if you get a manual review from a "human bean" at Google it will appear normal. There's a step by step at yourinternets(dot)com- :eek:
