Clickbank Cancer-What To Do?

    So I was making pretty good sales from Fat Loss for Idiots until a couple of months ago when sales completely vanished. I opened a new account, and changed to Strip The Fat, still NO SALES.
    Recently I switched to Click2Sell but their weight loss products suck! I still have good traffic and CTRs so what should I do? I'd like to go back to CB products but fear I can't do it from my home computer (links hijacked somehow?) Does it make sense to get a hoplink from my work machine or would that be futile as well?
    I'm not a tech guy so I don't know if I've been cookie stuffed (whatever that is) or not.

    Any ideas? I'm going broke.

    How many visits have you been getting to the merchant sales pages since your sales have vanished?

    What was your conversion rate before?

    It could just be that you're seeing normal fluctuations due to the random way sales are distributed over time.

    CB now also masks their links to protect your affiliate sale, so you may have better fortune if you resume working with them.

    There's no problem with clickbank tracking code. Fatloss4idiots convert extremely well. I assume you drive targeted traffic, If you don't get conversion, you should test your link and see in the purchase page, if there's your aff name and track code at the bottom. There's no problem. If there's no name, it mean there's cookie trouble, you should check it.

    Nope. Everything is the same except ZERO sales. Like I said, same thing happened with Strip The Fat (and FL4I) on a new account. Same traffic, same CTR, everything. But no EFFING money.
    Ima good writer and my shit converted before. Now, nada.

    They were useless, as usual.

    Try another affiliate product, just to test if it's because of the product. I said that because there is this product on CB "Calling men..." something, that my affiliate ID never shows up in the checkout page, but someone else's. When I found another product and tried, it worked fine again.

    See above. I switched products (to Strip The Fat, also a good converter) and made a new account, cleared cookies, still nothing.

    How much traffic have you sent to their sales page since you started having problems? If it's less than a few hundred, it could just be normal data distribution. If you've pumped hundreds and hundreds of clicks to their sales page without a sale, though, then I agree, something doesn't sound right.

    Not sure how you get traffic to your landing page, but have you checked to see if anyone else has moved in to compete with you? Maybe you're clicks to your landing page aren't of the same quality anymore?

    I'm numbers 4 and 6 on Yahoo's 1st page for my KWs so for both sites it's about 350-400+ hits a month. No sales for over 2 months so that's about 2000 hits with no sales.
    I'm trying a Clik2Sell product on all anchor text but frankly the sales letter sucks and the product looks like it might as well.
    FL4Is had a great sales page ans was bringing me sales every week until they just stopped.

    If you go to CB and generate a new hoplink it will use the new, masked code.

    The old hoplinks still work, though, so unless you've "upgraded" to use the new ones you'll still see them in the old style.

    So, is there a way that someone might be hijacking my sales?

    But there is a problem... I can decode a hoplink back to the original... so anyone (including big g) can do that too?

    it's actually not THAT great.. it is still better to use a cloaker.
    What clickbank changed is that if ppl mouseover your links, they just see a bunch of numbers instead of actual aff ID..

    But as soon as they clicked the link.. ?

    The url still has an ugly ending with this : ?hop=AFFILIATEID

    and this is more than enough for you to lose sales.Using a php redirect is safer.

    Well, I changed all my hops to a Click2Sell product, but the sales letter sucks. But I wasn't making any CB sales so I guess I'll just write my own product. Got to do something with all this traffic.
