    Hi,

    I signed up for CB a while back, and managed to get some sales for a Mafia Wars product via Facebook PPC, using the free ad voucher from Visa Business Network.

    So I made $90 with it, but I haven't met my CDR yet to get the paycheck. Now, I've heard a lot of people say things like "Fuck clickbank, join a real CPA network with real products" etc etc... And I've also heard of people making a couple grand with CB.

    I decided I would stick to it for a while, and see what my results are. So I made a domain related to the Mafia Wars niche, slapped WP on it and it was seriously indexed like that. I've only made a handful of sites, and this is the first time I've been indexed so quickly.

    Yay! I was excited, I was in Google and it was just a matter of making backlinks, SEO, Web2.0 properties etc related. So I did this, and commented on 1-2k blogs, managed to get about 30 backlinks by the next day. Also had a Facebook group, but there are so many fucking groups for Mafia Wars that I dont think I stood a chance, or maybe I just haven't hit it right yet...

    Woke up this morning, checked Google using site:mysitehere.info and lo and behold, Im no longer indexed! I only have 32 backlinks, managed to get about 60 visitors, but only ~15 clicks for CB.

    So, I have a few questions. What are the chances of my site getting re-indexed? From what I've read, it could take anywhere from weeks to months if it happens at all. Did it get de-indexed because of the backlinks?

    And is the Mafia Wars niche pretty much saturated, in your opinion? Should I find a different CB product and work on that instead?

    I'm willing to put in the time, effort, and writing. I'm learning PHP/HTML and I can write articles fairly quickly. I used to do that in the past on GetAFreeLancer/Elance before I figured out what people were doing with them :p


    In retrospect, I think the niche may be too saturated for me to break into, at least with my current level of knowledge; there are already squidoo lenses, hubpages, etc for this niche. I appreciate any advice, tips, suggestion etc. Feel free to PM me or AIM me if you feel like it.

    Thanks for your time

    Thanks for the reply nettoz. It just seems like there are already so many articles and such directed at it...

    Do article directories except similar articles like that? I have no problem writing or rewording and making things as unique as possible.. Hm. What about other top CB products?

    If there are already a lot of articles and such out there... do you still stand a chance as long as you outdo the competition?

    Don't even think to submit same article to ezine, they don't accept it and block your account. If you are new in affiliated marketing then don't promote top clickbank product b/c that already is being promote my expert marketers. and finally Don't you think Mafia game is becoming old day by day and many users already use your guide. There is a habit in human being, Every time they want something new and fresh. Hope this will help you....................................

    Christ I loved your post.

    It was so refreshing to read about someone taking a method, a concept from this forum and putting it into action instead of asking to be breast fed to the bank. Such a fantastic departure from abandoned journey threads, whines, flames, begging, and posts that wind up discouraging as opposed to encouraging.

    Folks coming onto the scene could stand to learn alot from this... Research - Try - Test - Track ... FAIL - THEN come to the table with your question, - a solution will be found and you'll make a friend instead of a flame.

    In regards to saturated markets, my feeling is .. yea of course it's fucking hard and in some cases impossible to DOMINATE the market. But when you consider how LARGE the pie is, if you were to only have a small slice... NAY - a piece of pie crust, could land you a pretty penny. I never disregard an oversaturated market.

    You'll find me deep in the belly of colon cleansing, weight loss, acai berry, teeth whitening, and penis pumpers with the rest of the riff raff. I'm not anywhere near the top.. not even close to the fucking middle - but the pay days do come, simply because the demand for these products are so great.

    Starting out in an oversaturated niche will also give you good contrast in understanding the difference between targeting a large market as opposed to a small niche.

    So have at it, and PM me any time... You're the kind of motivated individual we should all have on our buddy lists.

    Well, thanks. Not sure what else to say really...

    I didn't come here expecting anyone to make me rich. Like the saying goes, You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink...


    I'm looking to meet some new people and network. Any of you who read this and have AIM/MSN feel free to add me: popefnord or [email protected], respectively...

    I have a lot to work at over the next few days... and I'd just like to say thanks to all the contributing members on this forum. You've given me motivation and a means to make a living using my talents and skills, something I can't do at a shit job flipping burgers...

    One way or another, I'm going to make it at this.

    What linking have you done to get you de-indexed?

    Ah, I forgot to mention... I don't think the backlinks were the reason I was de-indexed...

    Somehow, and I really am at a loss with this, all my blogs had their default settings changed to BLOCK search engines lol! I'm now indexed again.

    Don't know how it happened... guess I clicked it without noticing or something. Figured this out shortly after I posted...
