    Yes, you definitely can. In fact, they just revised their affiliate contract yesterday and there was specific mention about strict rules related to spamming.

    If you would redirect a domain to your affiliate link, and spam the domain can they find this out?

    Or if you make people click on the affiliate link, on your domain, that is legal right?

    I have had my landing page now all this year and have more then 40 offers on this one, I spam this all I can and are also on NO1 spot in a very competetive keyword.
    I get about 3000 visits a day and have around 1000€ income a month from this, and I have been using Scrapeboc Xrumer, youtube twitter facebook tagged, all year as mutch as i can, so a landingpage is a must in order to get good result withou getting your account deleted.

    OP - if you have your own CB product you can easily test the spam theory... lets face it, everyone needs to look "tough on spam" but when they are making money as a result of spam, they tend to act a little differently than they publicly pronounce.

    Here's the idea... (with your own CB product)

    Create a fresh new aff account - spam the living shit out of it by using your aff link to promote your own product.

    If they close your aff account, your CB seller account is still safe and will have the money from generated sales sitting in it, so at worst, if they did close the aff account, your sales account would still make the same money that it would make on any sales generated via affiliate.

    Doing this will give you the absolute answer you are looking for, and will let you be profitable in the process regardless of them leaving open or killing that new aff account.

    My advice is to follow Joshua's advice. Test market a clickbank product and then recreate it into your own.

    This way, only you can ban you :)

    Also, only you can shave profits.

    Are you sure this is safe and won't get you banned? They can't find out you're using a .info which redirects to your aff link? I'm a bit skeptical because if it was this easy everybody would be doing this.. did you try this yourself?

    This is actually possible? To steal whole landingpage + product and clickbank won't find out once you put it in the marketplace? I never used clickbank before.. but that would be a good technique indeed.


    I see lots of people that have a seperate domain for every clickbank product they promote, but you have more then 40+ offer on 1 website. Do you think that works better overall? It does save you lots of time when building backlinks, but do you also build many deep links for the offers?

    Look I've been a clickbank vendor and affiliate for five years. I've done what others have said above with no ban. I spam everyday ( about 90,000 worpress url ) with my own script without a problem.

    Last year I was spamming one major article directory (trusted by google) by posting over 600 articles per day. All links on those articles are redirected to my money site by using SEC (search engine cloaker).

    To sum up " YOU"LL BE OK". I'm telling you from experience.

    Read the posts, only if you cloak it with another domain.

    bottom line - this is a black hat forum that promotes black hat SEO methods.
    Spamming is a black hat technique that can land you in the poo if you don't do it correctly.

    If this bothers you or if you don't have the experience to know what you are doing then I'd say keep researching or go white hat until you do.

    No offence but there is an absolute stack of info to be found in this forum if you spend the time looking.

    I think you're misunderstanding the question being asked in this thread. The OP is asking if clickbank will ban your account for spamming. He doesn't have any ethical concerns with spamming he just wants to make sure his account won't get banned....
