    1000 visits in a day for the first time ever. Not running PPC or any ad campaigns just ranking on Google.

    And the grand total of today's earnings:
    $4.00

    AdSense likes to pay me around $0.40 per click. I added Clickbank before but it got over 200 clicks with not even one order form impression.

    Yeah, I agree. 200 hops without an order form impression would indicate a shit lander or product.

    Thats a good volume, are you ranking for a single or a variety of keywords? What's your link building strategy and do you rank top 3?

    Yeah the product is really shit and the guy's selling technique uses an overly dramatic story saying that you might die if you don't buy it. However pretty much all CB products in my niche are shite and this one has the highest gravity. I swapped out the CB ad with one for an Amazon product and it got 0 clicks in over 200 views so I just took the ad down altogether.

    Various keywords, around 2 main ones per page. I wrote all the content myself and there are around 100 different articles. Some ranked naturally, others I bought SEO packages from BHW. I can't do SEO to be honest, the most I've done is set up 5 different Web 2.0s with a few iWriter articles on each and one with links placed contextually.
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Something else to think about is if your targeting the "money" keywords or the "interest" keywords. Different things and convert differently.

    You need to optimise the adsense with one 336*280 on the top of your page on the left side. Then you should be earning a bit more - like $20-30 a day in the worst case.

    Congrats! Sounds like you're getting 1% CTR - I'd play around with the ad placements to get at least to 3% - that'd be $12 per day for you, and you can go higher too - 5% would put you at $20.

    Lol! 4$ a day? Either play with your ads until you get 5% or content lock your website with some cpa network. If those 1k visitors are usa/uk/ca/au/fr etc. you will make 30$ a day in the worst case

    I stick to a 100 hops per sale on clickbank as the others say it was probably a bad product. Dont be put off by your previous experience. But that been said a great achievement. Well done.
