    1 PPC question and 1 SEO/Google question

    1.) On AdWords, can I use direct clickbank affiliate link instead of getting my own domain and put a clickbank product up?

    2.) Will Google ban/sandbox/whatever my site if I promote LoudMo on my site?

    Nice! I don't know the answer to either question. Shows what I know! ;)

    Good luck on finding out, though. I'm sure there are people here who know.

    Pretty sure for adwords you will need to link to your own web address. Some of the big publishers will create customized landing pages for you because that will increase your odds of converting the traffic. This will take out the part of going to your site and then needing the user to click on the affiliate link to get to another sales copy page.

    Yeah I figured having my own landing page would convert more, thanks

    what about #2, would Google ban my site if I put up LoudMo affiliate link? I have it set up this way- I disallow Google to crawl the folder with index.html that redirects to my LoudMo affiliate page with robots.txt, would that work?

    Adwords requires that your display URL and destination URL be the same. Adbot will check for that.

    Build a landing page, optimize for a high quality score (will save you $$$ on CPC) and then direct them to your CPA offer.

    best thing to do is try it on a throw away domain and see what happens. Not sure if you're disallowing robots on the index.html of your site or the actual redirect. If it's the index of your site...then that sort of defeats the idea of ranking...as the spiders can't crawl your site. If you're blocking the redirect then i don't see you having any problems. You could also set your affiliate link as "nofollow"
