    Ok, PPC Traffic very targetted with keyword 'Farmville"

    Clickbank stats:

    140 hops Hops per order form= 20 Order form impressions=7
    Sales= 0!

    Seriously?

    The numbers are pretty low as someone already stated. Maybe your just unlucky, personally I hate clickbank I never made a penny with them. Good luck though

    Sometimes other affiliates visit your site and check out the order form to see what your affiliate ID is. I do it so others must do.

    those stats are pretty normal

    farmville secrets isnt selling very well thru ppc because there's way too many people just looking for free information about the game

    it also depends on your ad copy & landing page & a ton of other factors other than just raw hop count.

    Indeed. I was the AM for a big biz-opp launch in December, and one affiliate sent us over 11K leads throughout the month. He had 6 sales. 4 were refunded.

    Yeah I think it is a Scam. I had a lot of daily hoops and no sales. Then suddenly after a few months I started making sales.

    But when I came to this forum one guy (very trusted here) told me not to waste my time with it since it was a scam.

    So my answers to your questions would be: Yes it is a scam and yes you're very unlucky :D

    You people who think it is a scam are stupid and promoting the wrong product, the wrong way.

    clickbank is not a scam...look at your landing page again and see what you can do to improve conversions

    A/B testing, different copy, etc ... experiment with the options

    Read em and weep, this is my Farmville campaign from Dec 2009 to Now.

    Promotion done through Google PPC to my review blog so these are pure clickthroughs because people liked what i wrote, im about even profit wise so this for me is a big no no in terms of promotion.

    Keywords:

    Farmville
    Farmville Secrets
    Farmville Zynga
    Farmville Secrets Review
    Farmville Secrets Guide
    Farmville Cheats

    Interesting that out of the 14 people who bought the guide, 13 were women.

    Now im just trying to build backlinks and answering on Yahoo Answers, and promotion through Facebook page to see what results i get from none paid promotion.

    discard the farmville keyword it is not targetted for searchers in the buyers mood, try to add modifiers such as fast,quick,now, easy
