Early last Month when i had more free time on my hand from School, i put up sites promoting some products and for each of them i ranked on Number 1 on google ..... with just <3 hours of linkbuilding work .... these sites took less than 5 days to rank. NB:I do not use any automation tools to build the backlinks. I drop links by hand, 3 hours work give or take. I just opened a blogger account took some fresh template from bloggertheme and did reviews on 6 clickbank products, 4 were about to launch and for all of them i ranked number 1 on google before the launch. NB:Though the on-site Optimization took me more time altogether. Remember these are highly competitive terms i ranked for and have remained no 1 since then. Google "emerald 11" & "fanpage dollars 3.0" & "traffic bandits" (without the quotes) . All the sites on 1st are blogspots and i used the same theme on all of them. Each time i have ranked for the official & unofficial names of these products before launch but i haven't made a dime not a dollar on or after launch NB:some seem to be wobbling a bit on the ranking but they ultimately remain on page 1 btw 1st and 2nd positions. All Three of the products are clickbank products. The hits keep coming but no sales. i am bombed,soon i'll be heading back to school with my hands full and no more time for IM. Maybe somehow buyers are cutting me out of the sales or CB products have become S#*t! forgive my french! NB: As of last night i have automated the linkbuilding process so building these links shouldn't take me 1 hour. I don't know which products to promote next any suggestions? IM Hint: Quick & thorough Indexation of your Backlinks is as important as the backlinks themselves. UPDATE: Replies are saying search count, search count, search count isn't impressive. Good & Well. But you can't Possibly know search count of a product that has not launched yet. Google Keyword gives you a number a month after. I only get to choose which product i promote, on the credibility of the marketer behind it. But it doesn't make it any less competitive. IF ANYONE DARE LET HIM/HER TRY AND RANK FOR A POPULAR CB LAUNCH. There are some sites that Dedicate themselves to promoting Clickbank products week-in week-out. There is money to be made.
