    Thank you for your opnion. But as far as I know, gravity is a measure of how many salers have made money on that product in a recent peroid, which seems the official explanation of CB.

    Gravity is not a measure of sales, but an algorithm depending on how many different affiliates have made a sale, i.e. a measure of current competition on that product. Even Harvey Segal, who is often regarded as the world's top ClickBank expert, recommends going for low gravity products. From his website (http://www.clickbankguide.com/gravity.htm):

    "Affiliates: Gravity is of LITTLE IMPORTANCE

    * it tells you little about sales - and nothing about the conversion rate

    * high gravity indicates lots of affiliates with recent sales but not how successful they are and figures may be just one-off spikes or even manipulated

    * low gravity indicates few affiliates so can be useful if you are seeking less competition"

    Is Clickbank still profitable? And is Clickbank's commission higher than Amazon's?

    Amazon's commission is approx 4 to 6%. On Clickbank, 75% is pretty much standard.

    Thanks a bunch, Mancar for this wonderful guide for newbies like me.

    I have a website that has got large number of categories (Yellow Pages/Business categories theme) and receives about 25000 page views daily from US audience. Currently, I am running Adsense only. I am looking at exploring affiliate programs as I have heard and analyzed that affiliate programs could possibly earn me much more than what Adsense currently earns.

    There are 2 ways I could go about it. First is embedding different affiliate products specific to each category within the respective categories and second, having one or 2 common products sitewide that could work for all. Achieving first is a heck of a job while achieving second is easier.

    What type of affiliate products do you think will work best on my site as it's not a niche theme, but rather a yellow pages directory where people come to locate businesses?

    Any thoughts?
    Thanks!

    Unless the traffic you are getting happens to lean towards a specific demographic - such as middle aged women - (which considering your niche it probably doesn't), then having different products embedded into each category (category-specific) would be the best way to go.

    There are two ways you could speed up this - 1. getting help from a coder to write a piece of code that would pull in specific products according to keywords on page (still hit and miss though) or 2. outsourcing the manual work. You could also do it yourself if you don't get too specific...ie. you could either have a product for each very specific keyword (such as a running product for listing relating to running), or else have one product for the broad keywords - such as one product for all health categories...

    pretty much yeah, keep in mind do never start big, a small active targeted audience with low competition is better than big audience with a high competition.

    Is it using blogger is a good choice for MNS?
    Do we need at least to change domain to .com or can proceed with the zxy.blogspot.com
