    I'm thinking about promoting CB products, but I've heard recently Chrome or some anti virus software blocks CB links. With that and the low quality of many products in mind, should I avoid clickbank? Is anyone still making money with them here?

    IM all the way.
    This question makes absolutely no sense.

    You are an affiliate marketer. You want to sell products and get a commission based on doing that.

    ClickBank is simply a place where merchants put their ClickBank products up to sell on. That is it. ClickBank lets anyone sell these merchant's products.

    Why would you avoid all "ClickBank" products? That is like saying "should I not date Asians." What sort of a question is that? You date people that are cool, if they are Asian then neat. If they aren't cool then don't date them, Asian or not.

    Promote good products. If they happen to be on ClickBank, who GAF? This question is honestly just incredibly bizarre.

    If your only concern is that ClickBank hoplinks are being detected by anti-virus software (which I extremely skeptical of) then just don't use the hoplinks? Use redirects. Why anyone would use the naked hoplink is beyond me, that URL is ugly as fuck, just redirect it through your URL.

    Are people still making money with them? Seriously? ClickBank is a place where merchants sell their products through. If the products are still converting, their sales funnels are converting, etc etc then obviously people are going to be making money. And considering that that is obviously true, then yes, thousands of people are, obviously, making money by promoting products that happen to be on ClickBank.

    They aren't "ClickBank products" they're products that are being sold through ClickBank, look at each product individually. If you go into a bookstore, and see a great book, would you say "oh, but what with the low quality of many books in mind here, I won't buy this book"? No. No you wouldn't. And don't worry about buyers being all "oh I've clicked 'buy now' and I see I'm on a CLICKBANK CHECKOUT PAGE well, ClickBank has lots of crappy products, this probably sucks too, I won't buy it" because most buyers won't even know what ClickBank even is.

    To answer the first part of your question, I have not noticed Chrome or any anti virus software blocking my links.

    Yes CB still works fine.

    As for Chrome blocking links, I still wonder why anyone uses Chrome at all.

    Don't be sorry for the question! There's no such thing as a noob question. Problem is people spreading rake rumours that only benefit Google itself. I wonder if these large corporations have people out there spreading shit like this. Anyway, feel free to ask away, just don't fall for BS you hear out there and do your own research ;)

    People are still making 5 figures a day on CB. It's nowhere near dead. The only thing you have to change is your promotional method. Just be smarter than the average affiliate and you'll be fine.

    CB + Email promotion works really well I hear ... personally I do CB + YT videos and that does okay for itself. It's always worth testing if you hear other people are making money doing it!

    You're probably promoting LQ fraudulent products such as get paid for surveys etc (my bitdefender block such sites as well) the problem is not with CB hoplinks but what you promote....CB is & still the best CPA (my opinion)

    People still make money with Clickbank. You'll always hear the complaints about affiliate
    programs, but seldom do those that make boat loads of cash.. share their success in forums.

    People *are* making $$$ with CB but there are better networks out there, less known ones with more exclusive offers. Those convert better.

    Are you sure it is clickbank link itself or the website that clickbank link redirects to?
