    Here is the my 100th post. I though to share some usefull information with you. I ran a ppc campaign on addwords and make around 1k in profit. Mainly from PPC other than that i use some article marketing also. Don't copy and paste the compaign be creative to make some money.


    Landing Page: freeappleiphone4gs.info

    Conversion rate on offer page 33%

    [​IMG]


    Conversion rate adword over 20%

    [​IMG]


    Here is the steps

    Setup a blog with contact us, privacy pages.
    Place a banner ad
    Cloaked that banner ad to a free iphone offer.



    Here is the cloaking Script



    Header Code


    I placed the redirect script as freeappleiphone4gs.info/link.php

    link.php




    All links are cloaking through link.php

    I linked the banner as below


    Notice that banner one in the link and link.php is the same. You can use same to name to that. link will be redirected to afflink1.


    After one month they found my site and got slapped. so i stopped the campaign.


    If you want my keyword(You can use these keywords for other products also like "ipad") list with

    1. Convertion report
    2. Cost/Conv
    3. CPC
    4. Bid
    5. Conversions vs Keywords


    PM me.. You can use thees

    Sorry for being such a noob, but I'm a programmer and have already set up a site extremely similar to yours, except that its for another product, not an iPod, now what's wrong with this method? Why would I get banned if the advertiser discovers my site?

    Sorry once again if I'm being a noob, but I'm new to all of this

    I think you can use this if you cloak the referrer good.
    This cloaking script does not actually cloak the referrer as far as i can see.. It just pastes a the original referer behind the url of the affiliate ?
    on their side the referrer is still going to be your site :)

    You should setup a second site, that is 'legitimate'.
    Then on the 'homepage' of the second site, in php, detect a session variable (you will set this elsewhere), if the session is set, do not show the page at all, just do a window.href to the affiliate in javascript, if the session is nog set, show the regular page.
    Now setup a second php script that will set the session variable and redirect via header() to the homepage of the site.

    Now link from your first site to the second php script on the first site.

    Got it ? :) I don't have time to explain in great detail now..

    Yes, I get what you say
    But what I wanted to ask is, why would I need to cloak the referrer at all?
    I have already set up a blog, and written 2 original articles/posts to make the site look legit. Now would I still need to cloak the referrer, or would that be sufficient for the advertisers to accept my website?

    I don't know, you said they slapped the site. Who slapped you ? adwords or the cpa ? I thought you meant the cpa so i thought some extra cloaking was required. Maybe I misunderstood and it was adwords who slapped you. I'm not really up to speed what is allowed with adwords and what not.

    hi guys,

    Sorry i was unable to login yesterday. I dodn't have a problem with CPA networks. I am in several networks. But Google adword don't allow bridge pages. It means my site work as a brigde. Traffic comes to my site and go to another site. That is why adword dropped my quality scores to 1 from 8,9.

    I wasn't banned by adword or from CPA network.

    This is legitimate traffic so no need to kill the referer. Peerfly was happy with this traffic.

    I will reply to all PM's

    Instead of linking to the offer why not just iframe it? Would that be acceptable then? Would they even know?

    So you cant send people to an other site from your site on adwords? They consider this as a bridge site?

    So how do you set up an adwords friendly site? Do you know how?

    Because you made 1k but what next? Will you just give up?

    Thanks

    iFrame not allowed by adword

    Building a email list is a next method. But it should be tricky because adword not allow to get emails offering free offers.


    Adcenter allow bridge page for some extent.

    Sent keyword list for all PMs

    1k Is the profit. I spent around $600. Sent you the keyword list. main keyword is the "free iphone" and got $0.2 cpc in the search. Some keywords are got around 17% CTR. You can see the report.
