    I had setup my adsense two days ago and it did not start for some reason. Everything is active and ready but I see no impression whats so ever.
    I hover over the status and I got this.

    Dude, you have a Quality score of 3/10, which means you probably won't see any impressions. You need to improve that to at least 7. Your cpc bid might be too low as well, but either way, fix the QS first.

    I don't understand. My affiliate link is a clickbank diet product and I have a diet keyword. Why would the quality score be 3. I don't even understand how to use the diagnostic tool. Can you give a tip?

    Google hates webpages stuffed with affiliate links. Link to your own domain and use a dmr to get to the affiliate program. So instead of "Click Here" goes to your affiliate link, it would go to mydomain.com/whatever, and in that folder you should have a dmr that takes the visitor to the affiliate offer.

    There are so many factors involved here, so it's hard to say. You might be screwed with the domain, and have to get a new one.

    You need to make sure the content is relevant to the keyword and ad. Use the google external keyword tool and put in your own website to see what google thinks the site is about. If it doesn't think it's about your keyword, you have to change the text.

    Also, don't keyword stuff the page, don't use direct affiliate links, put in a contact page, a privacy policy, an about page and a sitemap to start with.

    Is it because of my clickbank affiliate link? Probably is because it's a clickbank encrypted url. Please confirm. Thanks.
