    I'm still a solid newbie in whole IM and CB itself, promoting two products so far, made me about 100$+ first month. Earning per hop is 0.08$ (500 hops total), second product 0.07$ (1.000 hops total).
    This numbers seems pretty low, or maybe it's normal, I don't know. That's why I'd like to know what's your best Earning Per Hop? Let's go wild, show off the numbers!

    for me $3.56 per hop.... usually ~$1 and it is I would say standard for good targeted traffic. Your traffic seems suck or product itself. $0.07 is bad I always look for products with rebill, or upsells

    The product is kinda bad, I picked it up when I knew even less than now, I just kept going and made some sales anyway... Your 3.56$ per hop is insanely good!

    I agree with you. I also think its hard to make good EPH with a bad product. Personally I usually have my best at 2$ and normally it stays about 1-1.5$.

    Possibly you have not that targeted traffic and that is why the earnings per hop is lower, but if your traffic is free I would not worry that much about it, especially if you get good quantity of visitors. My better affiliates range from $1.5 to $2.

    Wow, I am not earning anywhere near that, but I'm still satisfied. I would say a good EPH is anything above your CPC :).

    Usually around $1 and I pay nothing for the traffic. They come through google for long tails.

    I thing, using social media will give more earning per hop than SE traffic. Mine is around the same as OP's, so I have just started on YT, FB and other SMs. Let me see what happens.

    Earnings per click is a completely useless metric because it all depends on the traffic source and how the traffic is monetized. Anyone can get an enormous $/click by ultrafiltering their traffic and making all their links something like "Click here to buy ProductX for $27." Or they could be buying traffic that converts 1:10 but that costs them $3 a click. When compared between two different marketers, earnings per click is not reflective of whether the traffic is monetized effectively, how good you are as a marketer, or anything else. It's apples to oranges. So anyone who tries to talk about how wonderful their earnings per click are, and how much yours suck without knowing the details of your traffic sources and marketing techniques is talking out their ass.

    Personally with Clickbank I get 1-3c per click on traffic redirected straight from the serps to the sales page. However if I was making my traffic click on ads on a blog (instead of redirecting it straight to the sales page) with the same amount of traffic, and getting a 10% ctr and the same amount of sales, then that would be the equivalent of 10c/click. So EPC is basically meaningless unless you're comparing using the same marketing techniques.

    Most traffic averaged across all niches on the internet (not just to CB) is worth about 1c per unique.

    Hello.

    Best per hop happened week ago - 8,31$ = 4 hops one sale. Traffic from YouTube and video about some software!

    Good Luck

    This is a really good question. I have never really looked at Earnings Per Hop before, I just tend to look at the amount of daily sales V's traffic. When I looked at my Earnings Per Hop after reading this thread mine are at a dismal $0.21 but I made around $4,800. So is Earnings Per Hop really needed as a statistic? IDK

    But I have noticed people with large Earnings Per Hop's, even vendors tend have low traffic vs's sales amounts e.g. 12 hops and 4 sales. The products I typically promote convert at 1 in 50-100 so a high Earnings Per Hop is out of the question. I have yet to see a someone make several thousand a day with an Earnings Per Hop above $10 but I could be wrong.

    Exactly, when you see these exaggerative EPH's from my experience it is based on a small ammount of sales and every product I have ever promoted in the last 9 years converts around 1 in 50-100.
