    It has come to my attention that one of the popular vendors in Clickbank is suspending affiliate hoplinks for NO reason.

    Here are some of the products:
    Weight Destroyer
    Erectile Dysfunction Protocol
    Diabetes Protocol

    Yeah, that same vendor who came out with all these similar landing page products. They've been banning affiliates from promoting their products for no particular reason (especially those who rank sites with their product keywords - all of them were suspended).
    What's worst is they aren't using Clickbank's way of suspending affiliate hoplinks, instead they're using their own sort of filtering system. So traffic you've pushed to the product will be given the "link has expired" page and they're given an option to be redirected to the salespage.

    What annoys me most is when you try to email them asking for an explanation or geting your affiliate ID to be approved again they will simply ignore your message.

    Just a heads up.

    clickbank is slowly going downhill . no new good products to promote. The same shit has been at the top of the market place for the last 2 years.

    All these products created by same company!
    I think there is a specific email to contact them to approve you as affiliate..

    No, it doesn't work that way. They will ban you permanently without a chance of getting re-approved.

    Few months back, they first started banning affiliates who blasted poor traffic that doesn't convert.

    As a vendor myself I understand that most vendors are unhappy with affiliates simply ranking for product keywords.

    So they won't approve you unless you're gonna do some extensive active marketing (email blasting, PPC, .etc).

    Though the vendor himself might earn his full cut, he will lose massive gravity score over time and lose the trust of most affiliates.

    CB seems like they're really letting themselves go, didn't they delete an abundance of niches (when it comes to offers) a little while ago?

    Yeah, they did.

    First it was the top converting diabetes offers.

    Then they removed 2 of the high gravity herpes offer products.

    Then they did a mass removal of tinnitus, herpes, vitiligo, and 'natural cancer' cure products.

    Numerous affiliates and vendors were hopping mad.

    But Clickbank did it for a valid and good reason: they wanted to maintain a positive reputation. There were numerous outrage online regarding the diabetes and herpes offers. So I think that's what triggered them to do a mass removal of products to upkeep their reputation.

    Maybe its just a glitch....cause they not ranking for their own products anyway so they not losing anything...and actually gaining sales and gravity. I would email Clickbank to sort it out if they are indeed attempting to steal affiliate commission.

    EDIT: I followed the steps of clikcing my affiliate link and then get the expired page, but if i then click the option to be redirected to the sales page and finally try to purchase the product...i still see my affiliate ID at the bottom of the screen as getting credit for the sales. So must be a glitch i think.

    Yeah, "natural cancer cures" sounds really legit, doesn't it? Good job on removing it. People might not visit real doctors because of "natural" shit like this and end up dying from cancer. Marketers who promote dangerous stuff like this deserve to have their knees blown off.

    Yeap, I agree. I didn't promote such disgusting and despicable product that claims to cure 'cancer'. It's really disgusting to give false hope to people who are dying and looking for a cure.

    So far Clickbank has not responded to me regarding the vendor's custom affiliate filtration system. Strangely.

    I know people who died from the cancer with the chemo traditional and I know thers are cured it with natural method, I know many doctor who said if one day they have cancer they shall never make a chemo because the chances of success are very weak... there are always 2 version of the same history

    I know a man condemned to death by the hospitals with incurrable cancer, he have go to this "crap method" and in just 3 months with significant injection of vitamin C ONLY he was cured 100%, but you can find numerous people sentenced to death story recover with natural method is extremely current but not mediatized! and we know for why :lock1:

    I actually watched the sales videos of these products when they came out as I was shocked by the high gravity of such a crappy looking product.

    For example, from what I can remember the weight destroyer tells a story of how an overweight guy was buying ice cream with his granddaughter and collapsed from a heart attack.

    He found out after recovery he was slowly dying of obesity and high cholesterol related issues that would cause another heart attack and probably kill him. He sought help from every doctor and diet in the world and nothing worked.

    Until one day his old highschool friend found a "secret trick" that enabled him to lose 40lbs. He followed the "secret plan" and ended up losing 40lbs as well and permanently lowered his cholesterol, other health problems, and had the profile of a 20 year old man - and doctors could not believe it!

    Then when you check the before and after pics his head is photoshopped on two different bodies.

    I can't imagine how bad the actual product must be.

    Cant be too bad, his average rebill total is over $270.00 which is actually good for a weight loss product.

    The problem is with this vendor (they own all the products) is they go by the EPC. If the EPC is below a certain % that they don't like they drop you... unfortunately, I think most vendors will eventually do this because of stupid people spamming their product the wrong way.

    rumor has it they were getting MASSIVE refunds and chargebacks and complaints from customers over those "magic pill" offers... which were all created by the same company...

    so they removed them.

    just like they removed all those "blind" IM offers back in 2009 for the same reason.

    sometimes you push the lines TOO much and it bites you in the arse.
