    Hey guys,
    I've made a blog today about a CB Product which I'm promoting and posted a few articles to it(Not original, from the affiliate) and only changed a couple of images and pushed my links, now I've tried to promote the blog with adwords but hit the wall with a e-mail i just got about it being a bridge website.

    I'm going a bit mad here, they won't let me send them directly ofc, and now a BLOG with actual content isn't good for them?, Any advice on getting around this or what i should do? This is extremely agitating.

    Any help/advice will be appreciated.

    Home Page:
    A bridge page is one where you have links from your own sales page to the affiliate's sale page. Think of your users. Would you not be annoyed to be sent to a sales page by clicking a link that says "buy now"? When I see and click such a button, I'm sold and the next page I see I expect it will be to pay for the product. Therefore, you must send those links to the checkout.

    But thats not the case, i have a "review" and information site that just sends them to the sales/landing page/home page of the offer, by what your saying im trying to directly sell them , but I'm just sending them to the companies site as far as i know.

    am i getting you wrong? I have a feeling i missed you there a bit.

    Maybe try, instead of sending them to the sales page, collect the opt-in, then program in 7 emails or so promoting the offer. You'll get higher conversions that way, and the bridge website issue is probably resolved.

    Another route is to put the sales page on your website. That should solve the bridge website issue as well, but I don't know about CB's terms of service on that, or the vendor's.

    You are trying to sell to them. I don't care if you call it a review or information site. In the end, you want them to buy. So when you say "buy it", send that link to the checkout and let them buy it instead of reading another sales page. That will solve your bridge page issue.

    sorry for double post but another question, do you know of a way to directly send customers to checkout on clickbank? I don't think its possible.

    also, i remade the ad, hopefully they won't ban me immidietly and actually check my site.
