    I just couldn't resist! I ran "clickbank" through a typo generator and then found that domain to be unregistered! Wonder how much traffic I'll get.. You guys have any ideas?

    Also, which would be better monetization:

    1) Redirect to the ClickBank official site under my referral link (make 20% of any 50$ start up fee, and then like 10% of what clickbank makes on any digital product sold)

    or...

    2) Redirect to a clickbank product page that has a good conversion rate and would appeal to normal clickbank users (maybe a "make money with clickbank" page)

    Cheers!

    Send 50% of your traffic to #1 and 50% to #2, and see which one makes you more money.

    Option 1 will target traffic. Option 2 is not your target market. Most people type Clickbank into the browser to go to the site as sellers or affiliates - not to buy products

    Clickbank may not like use of a typo of their name so do not put much effort into it until you start getting paid

    I don't think he's stupid in this case. d is very close to c on the keyboard. I think he may do okay with that.

    All great responses!

    @s0phia - Why would you think that? The domain cost me a few bucks, and with the amount of traffic clickbank gets, I'm sure dlickbank.com will get some amount of typo traffic that most likely will convert on some level. Look how close the letter 'd' is to the letter 'c' on your keyboard..

    @gh0st - Good idea, thanks.

    @housemusic - If it turns out to be a flop, I'll do that ;)

    What would you guys think about a re-direct to an affiliate page AND stuffing a cookie for the clickbank referral program? Double whammy? ;)

    Sure but are you willing to risk Trademark and Cybersquatting issues?

    Clickbank can easily accuse him of trademark violation and refuse to pay - or complain to the registrar and get the account locked

    I don't think I would have to worry about that, as they are completely different names ;)

    I can spoof the referrer if needed - but really? dlickbank and clickbank are not the same word, so how could they do that?

    what an ignorant noob

    Ever heard of Typosquatting? Dear I suggest you take time to study before making any comments because the more you talk, the more you commit mistakes.

    Im actually saving you from going to jail just in case you plan to do the same thing in the future.

    You posted publicaly that you registered it based on it's similarity to clickbank, and by simply redirecting traffic to a clickbank affiliate URL you are displaying intent to profit with bad faith.

    Clickbank would have a very strong case.
