    Hello, I have been a member here for quite some time. I have soaked up so much knowledge from so many of the amazing people here.

    I am completely stumped! I have spent so much time "taking action" to produce no results, and feel I am at a loss.

    This has been my snapshot for my commissions for nearly 2 years.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Here's one of my sites http://sculptperfectabs.com/ the other looks similar, just not promoting anything on it yet.

    P.S. I don't use Adsense anymore, or more truthfully they don't use me. My account was suspended because I was promoting "Truth About Abs" on my landing page. When I setup a campaign in my Adwords the next day when I got home from work I had 3 emails from Google. 2 warnings and the 3rd stating my account was suspended.

    I feel your pain! I tried ClickBank a year ago.. maybe a few months longer. I saw this one guy on youtube, making either $6,000 every 2 weeks, or a month. I forget which.

    Anyways, the videos were legit, he was videoing himself at the mailbox.. in his car.. showing his check at the post office.. the bank.. etc etc

    So I tried promoting his E-Book on clickbank.. made a decent blog, put up videos of other peoples success with this product.. even made my own video of me starting out on Clickbank and all that good stuff..

    Long story short, never made a dime and haven't tried them sense

    What do your analytics look like? hops? order for impressions? order form submits?

    1)It seems you need to add more content about ads on your blog as you have only 2 posts,
    2) Did google de-index your site after the adsense slap? Is your site ranking at all?

    check your site here:

    Code:
    [URL]http://www.searchenginegenie.com/google-rank-checker.html[/URL][URL="http://www.searchenginegenie.com/google-rank-checker.html"]
    [/URL]
    3) You need to promote the hell out of your site using youtube,twitter, facebook, email marketing. Are you doing any of those things?

    Affiliate marketing is a game of numbers. Promote, promote, promote is the name of the game. Hope this helps.

    Thank you for the friendly and quick response. I guess I'm definitely not the only one. lol

    Yes, more content is a must. I have been adding more and more, however not very quickly.
    As far as my site ranking... I don't think it is at all, nor indexed. I checked the link you provided and all it says is that google blocked my IP temorarily.
    I have also been promoting the site, so far through backlinks.
    Thank you for your help.

    Try using other ways to affiliate market stuff too - amazon affiliates, commission junction. LOL at truth about abs that was the first product i promoted as well. Just write google quality content and reviews about the products and push as many product reviews/articles a day as you possibly can.

    A thought if you can spare the time/resources to try it:

    Use a decent research tool, find small competitions and LSI keywords. After the Panda update on 3/25, this becomes more prominent.

    Find the smallest keywords with the most clicks possible. I'm talking like competition of a few hundred sites, not 240k exact matches for a keyword. They're out there, just pick a couple of keywords you're interested in and fire away.

    Truth About Abs is a GIANT (or looks like one from my perspective). Try using C*B*Snooper . c0m to get some accurate results on products. If you're gonna run keyword stats, might as well run product stats, right? Don't want to do all that research and site building to find out they stopped supporting that product or it got taken down because of a T&C Violation on CB.

    If you have automated SEO programs, do a couple of blasts (SEnukeX is my weapon of choice right now with HUGE custom templates) to the review site and also to the affiliate link. If you're using WP to build sites, use a plugin like pretty link to make the affiliate link look like a regular link on your site. By alternating the blasts, you should get direct traffic to the product page, and some traffic to your site as well. Mix it up a bit!

    Make sure your on-site content is not spun at all. Needs to be really unique, and containing all the usual on-site seo stuff about your big keywords (1 per page I find works) and an LSI or two.

    These are things I do on a regular basis using software like SEnuke in my boss' office, and also for my own sites. Both get great results, so it works on a corporate level and a personal level.

    I've left out some stuff, but there's a search button for that. I think this should give you a good spring board as to where you want to be.

    On a side note: I'm using this method for all of my boss' sites, of which there are 250+ sites. I got started here not too long ago, found out 75 of his sites were Google penalties of -50, and we've reduced that penalty by half in 5 days across all 75 sites. It works, but put your own spin on it and make it work for you, your tools, and your skillset. There's nothing you can't learn on this forum and through the resources here.

    Good luck!

    It's all about sending traffic. TARGETED traffic.

    Oh, from my stats I find that TruthAboutAbs is the worst converting product of the 8-9 I'm promoting.

    My problem is all the refunds I get in a single day from cb. Idk, maybe its that you read to much into other peoples methods and strategies instead of developing your own. It's not hard to make money with cb.

    Just to test my own success I created a brand new account and blasted 3 products from clickbank, and within 2 weeks I made 1,100 dollars on this new account alone. Need proof. Ok np! But most people here don't believe screenshots, so I'll show a video.

    The First Account in the video is the new one. I have moved on to using other networks like digital river. But am still earning off of products on cb weeks, months, and years after I posted them.

    Video:
    Code:
    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xprxie_my-cb-stats_tech
    Im not gonna answer pm's asking how I promote products. All I will say is that I make mine own tools, and Senuke and XR can possibly do the exact same thing.

    Oh, and I completely agree with kitteh101, to maximize profits use multiple networks and affiliate programs. I am earning much better this way. Because the fact is every network shaves.

    Good Luck!

    Hey man,

    what's the advantage of using multiple accounts on CB? I see several people doing this, the only positive I can think of is that if one account get banned, you have the other ones, but then again couldn't CB discover easily accounts from the same user (they don't pay through Paypal so you are obliged to use your real personal info)?

    It's not against Clickbank's TOS, or at least it wasn't the last time I checked to have multiple accounts. But the reason I created multiple accounts was to try and get around the shaving. I read somewhere that when your sales drop off that if you rotate your account the sales will mysteriously go back up. This did work very good a couple years ago when the streaming movie niche was hot. That was the good ol days! But yeah the reason is to try and get passed the shaving.

    Now I use multiple accounts for cross testing different methods and strategies. I'm not really worried about getting my accounts banned cause I always use my own landing page before sending the visitor through the hop link.

    The account details doesn't really need to have a SSN entered in until later so there were always a way around that.

    I feel your pain mate. Truth about abs was the first clickbank product I promoted, using adwords as well. Was making a killing from it but then got banned from google. Am now promoting a few other items and just getting people to the site through SEO. Getting about 10 hops a day and was making a sale every second day up until about a 2 months ago. Still getting same amount of hops but am making no sales any more. Need to keep trying new things.

    Thank you. I don't quite understand I use Wordpress and I have Pretty Link installed. However, I don't have SEnukeX. Is there another way?

    Thank you for the advice, and for going out of your way to make the video. I usually always believe the screen shots... then again, I think I might too gullible.
    I think I might have better luck if I create a product since I suck at I.M. lol

    I can't say it's good to hear ha ha. Although, I'm glad to know that I'm not alone.
    This is actually my second go at this. I tried it in 2008 and after a year of the same as now, no results from countless time and effort, I threw in the towel. A year later decided to try it again.
