Only yesterday I made my first website and popped a clickbank product on it, buried under some lovely review-style literary gloss and optimised the hell out of the page. I put Adsense on the top of the page and it looks pretty good. Nothing special, but enough information to keep it from looking spammy and not enough to satisfy people's needs and prevent them from clicking on. It's had two visits so far (both me, I was all excited at work and thought I'd have another look at last night's handywork). I made it with a HTML template (side question - what's so good about wordpress over HTML sites..?) and for about a day it was my baby. But now I'm all down. I KNOW nobody's going to see the page until it ranks, which it won't because I chose a stupidly popular niche that nobody ever searches, and I KNOW Rome wasn't built in a day, but I just don't see how this site's ever going to make me any money. I need a success story from someone. Anyone?
