    Hi. I have a rather unusual problem. Unlike the hundreds of threads where people ask how to make money, my issue is that i make sales and i don't know how. Let me explain en detail.
    I promote WSOs on my YT channel.
    I always shorten the link with bit*ly so i can track how many people actually clicked the link.
    Usually i am Nr. 1 on YT and on the first page on Google (at least for a day).

    Today I sold a WSO (Quick Screencasst Profits - brand new wso).
    So i went to Google and wrote the keywords i was trying to rank for - i was on page 3 on google(might as well not be at all).
    OK, i thought i must be first on YT...but i went to youtube and i was not on first page.

    SO how the hell did i make the sale if i am nowhere to be found in SERP? Bit*ly shows one click from youtube. That click made me the sale.
    And this is not the Only case! I made multiple sales this way - for videos that were not on Google nor on YT first page!

    Anyone can lighten me up?
    Maybe there is an URL shortener that gives great referrer details?

    I am not sure but if you are using Warriorplus, they are going through major upgradation. That can cause faulty sales track. On the other hand, someone used Google video search.

    Yeah but page 1-2 are filled with affiliates sites and videos. And mine is nothing compared their videos...they have voice over reviews...i just have 2-3 pictures and call to action...not impressing

    Well I guess you already answered your own question. That one guy made you a sale.

    God works in mysterious ways.

    No but really, that guy must just have clicked through the pages until he found you. Or maybe he wrote different keyword than you did. Either way it doesn't really matter. It would have been different if you had tons of people clicking your links and buying your things, but if it's only one then it's just luck and coincidence.

    Be glad man. I understand why you'd like to know how he found you, but if I had to guess, he just wan't satisfied with the results of his search until he found your video. Another possible explaination is that he found your video because it was listed in the "related videos' list.

    You should install a web analytics tracking gig like Google anayltics and see where your stream is coming from, once you find that out, it may give you an advantage to project it!

    You know you might be right!! I completely missed the related videos part! I think this is it! This must be it...no other explanation comes to mind!

    YEAH i checked this theory and watched the first video that is on 1st page of google and noticed my video in related column. The video kinda stands out from the rest. Hm...interesting...

    Thx guys! I cant believe i forgot about related videos!

    Two possibilities (nothing mysterious here):

    1) The guy clicked on video results in the search -- You can do that in the left side
    2) He maybe someone registered to your channel, or clicking through your videos.

    ... or the video ranks differently in local googles .. like google.ca, google.co.uk ... etc..

    check your video stats " First referral from" maybe your video was listed in relevant box of other peoples videos
