    I currently get about 10 per day so says analytics- mostly organic.

    So how many more on average per sale- ballparks; so I can have an idea what to shoot for and where best to spend my time in SEO.

    I also have to rework my onpage for CB cos I had been planning on adsense but after chatting with ppl on here that seems unviable which is why I'm looking back to CB. So I'll also have to rework my onpage to suite my CB product.

    BTW I am not prepared to build a shitty list (I know the said benefits but I hate the idea of email hustling, I prefer staying indirect). I despise that idea, I am going for quality content on blog then links to the product. So bear that in mind when giving me traffic figures per sale plz.

    If your getting 10 hops per day you definitely need to scale up as the general rule is 1%-2% conversions on your hops. Therefore, 100-200 hops should get you 1-2 sales if your trafffic is decent and targeted.

    Hmm, wait a sec are you say 100-200 uvs to the site?

    Cos if it's hops it means there is both visitors to the site and hops.

    But generally I'd read that 1-2% of actual visitors to your site? rather than hops.

    I have a very negative expreience with CB,I hear that ussually in newdays CB products convert as about 500 uvs to 1 sale, i sent to them 6900 uniques/hops to bet software site(sport related traffic), then about 4000 hops to realwritejob site all this ppl bloggers/site owners and i think its a targeted traffic, got $20 (from downsale) sure i never get this money with their "must have 3 orders from different users" police to prevent fake transactions .
    For me a big secret how they attract so many affiliates with such terrible service.I tried them twicy - first time few years ago with 0 results. May be some super seoguru can ern some money- but not me, so i prefer CPA or sale/affiliate sites, or at least adsense ( clicks go down last time)
    Or may be i have to find other offer- but i don't want to loss my traffic again just for experiment.

    It totally depends on the product, how good your sales pitch is, if you are offering an bonus or incentive for them to buy thorough you. Also what keywords you are targetting etc.

    The product I sell now get about 1 hop per 20 page views and about one sale per 10 hops.

    Guys can you clarify what you mean by hops? As some of you seem to be using it to mean just traffic on your page whereas I thought hops meant the actual hop from your page to the affiliate's site.

    @webay. I guess my conversions(1%-2%) are not so great because I offer no bonuses plus I direct link. I offer no reviews just straight link to sales pages.

    I generally dont track UVs. I only track hops via CB's analytics which are probably faulty anyway. When I say 1%-2% I mean out of the hops registered by CB, I'll get 1% or 2% of those hops that result in a sale. Therefore, the goal is to drive as much traffic as possible to your affiliate links!

    I am no-way a "Super Affiliate" however I do get a direct deposit into my account every week from CB. You can figure your UVs and Hops but the way I do it is in reverse.

    I look at what I want to earn, based on the price of the product (what I earn X units sold). Then I figure out the amount of "Hops" it takes to make that many sales (units sold), then figure how many "UV's" it takes to get that many "Hops and then I figure how much traffic I need to get that many UV's.

    I hope that all makes sense. Just driving traffic blindly does not leave you with a way to measure your results. Sure you can get sales, but then your left with duplicating your efforts, if you don't know how you did it, how would you expect to be able to "Rinse and Repeat"?

    Now to answer your question:

    This is my conservative numbers that I have tracked.

    Rank in the top 3 (stay steady at 1 or just move daily in the top 3) of SERP's 60% of all the traffic ends up as UV's to your site (you need to know what your keywords pull in to know the actual number)

    Well put together page...not just direct linking, about 3% - 5% conversation

    Direct linking has fallen off for most....maybe 1 in 200 or even worse

    I hope that helps.

    Cheers peeps, some good stats here.

    Seem like a nice little corner of the forum we got here (had only been over at main black hat and tools forums mainly before).

    SEOrocks, yea that's pretty much exactly how I'd been figuring it and precisely why I made the post to figure out how much traffic I should be aiming for so I know which keywords to target and how much SEO to do.

    I wanna make about $150-200 a week in the short term to cover my shortfalls which are gonna be coming around in the near future. So I figured that at around 5-7 sales per week.

    So 300 x 5 % 7 days of the week = 214 traffic per day. Obviously err on the high side and the more the merrier but for ballparks I have a better idea of what I'm working with.

    I have more then 100 CB review sites, and some of them convert really high because I'm preselling these visitors like crazy.

    But 1 sale per 100 visitors must be doable for most products and if your landingpage is converting ok.

    If your landing page is good, then you can easily make a sale for every 100 visitors. organic traffic converts better than referred traffic, so if you can scale it up, you can start making sales.

    What Nossie says, it all depends on your content. And besides that your keyword choice, etc. You can send 1000 visitors, but if they are looking for "free money making tips" or whatever... they will be tough to convert.

    Also, I think you got the wrong idea about email marketing. It is one of the easiest ways to make money. Because it's an actual business you are building. And you don't depend on Google's "mood of the day".

    Excuse me? Converts better? I beg to differ.
