    so say i have a clickbank product, and have 5 separate pages targeting 5 kws that i am ranking for in the #1 position on google (all related to the product)

    my question is should i try and promote the cb product (no giant "BUY NOW" buttons, just inline text links) on each page, or try and funnel them to a landing page (from each individual page), and then try and sell the product from the landing page?
    should i combine all of the separate pages into different articles on one continuous page (blog style)?

    site is looking like a regular niche site, and i have 10 pages of articles, with each page containing about 1-1.5k words each

    thanks :D

    Probably better keep the pages separate, since they're already ranking #1 for different keywords.

    As for product promotion, it really depends on the product and types of articles. Inline links might not be enough, don't be afraid to add a soft nudge for your readers, while making it relevant and useful to them. Such as, if the article mentions the use of some type of product, you can say "by the way, I've tested and personally recommend this one <link>". After that you can do tests to see what will perform better, but generally start out with the idea that the less clicks a user has to make to purchase the item, the higher the chance that he will get to the end.

    THEN you can look at your hop rate compared to conversions, and if that appears too high, you can try to add another presales page to warm up your readers in a way that's relevant to the article they just read. You can either do a "recommended products" article that's relevant to your niche and add in a bunch of hoplinks there, or write a separate review article for the clickbank product and link to that from your article.

    Generally with MNS though, if your articles are relevant to the product, but the conversions are low, something is wrong with the product or their sales page. You can consider either changing the product or contacting the vendor and working with him to set up your own custom sales page and linking straight to the order page.

    Yes, for sure

    the only other thing you should do is test.

    Test with inline anchor text, a few through out the page and see what sales look like after a week

    Then test it with a "Learn More" button. don't do buy now, unless you did a really good job of selling them and they are actually ready to buy.

    Each niche and site is different so testing will yield different results for each....

    I am intrigued with the recommended usage of inline anchor text. Are you folks suggesting to simply LINK various keywords throughout the articles as an possibly effective mechanism to generate click-throughs?

    I am unfamiliar with this approach, and have historically taken a more direct tact to generating sales, i.e. typical review style sites, or list building measures. Is there any truth that simply inline text links can work for either click-throughs or sales?

    cool, i was thinking something like that. like a "see for yourself" line, then have a button that says "here" or whatever

    well the way im making this out to be is a kinda niche/authority site. im not overtly trying to sell the product, but i actually purchased my product that i will be selling so that i know how to structure the website, and hopefully keep the returns rate to a minimum. havent made any sales yet since im just starting with clickbank on the site, but ill let you guys know how it goes.

    i figure ill go make a move overt push to sell on a few pages, hopefully nobody goes crawling around and gets spooked with the buy buttons

    This is great for blog style affiliate sites because the user thinks they are reading a blog and getting help, not being sold something.

    I have a site with each of the links, inline in the body of the text and a "learn more" button at the bottom. My in line text accounted for 80% of my sales....i bet they did not even get to the bottom to see my other link (the button)

    They say the average internet purchaser buys something through an affiliate at least 10 times a year without even realizing it.

    Example: last week I had an issue with my TV so I googled what could be wrong with it
    and found it was the Power Supply Panel.

    So I google the part number, found a site that sells it and bought it.

    This was an affiliate site that I bought from, but the average person would not know this, they would think
    it was actually the parts department for the TV Manufacturer.

    They did a really good job of emulating the manufacturer's site and supplying good, relevant info.

    No fucking ads all over the place, no big ass "BUY NOW" buttons and a nice, easy to navigate site!
