    I don't know if it's the appropriate section but I need some help here...
    The thing is, I am trying to promote clickbank products and am getting sales. I get around 600 visits per 7 days to my landing page. And 120 hops a week for which I get at least 2 sales for 14 dollars. Now that isn't much, but at least it's steady and I get my few extra bucks a month. Now I have absolutely no problems getting unique, keyword focused content, setting up squidoo lenses, hubpages, whatever...imo my main problem usually is lack of traffic! The problem is I have promoted the hell out of the page which gets 600 views a week, but the traffic hasn't ever reached 700. I try yahoo answers, I try other sites like that, forums, hubpages, article sites, youtube, I even spy on my competition and did what they did, I paid the guy to submit the page to countless social bookmarks, but....I never break the 700 limit, and I'm out of ideas. I need to get more targeted traffic to my site/s.
    I heard some guys here are getting like 1k visitors a day. How the hell? If I would be getting that much I would be the happiest man on earth :D Any ideas?
    I must also note that while I indeed do not have problems getting unique content for articles, I can not publish it for sites where content is being reviewed, so maybe there are some good no-review sites where I could get lots of targeted visitors and post articles which will direct them to my landing page? I've tried this with hubpages, but the artilces get only a few views and even less hops.

    How old is the site? The key to ranking in the serps is backlinks.

    Keep in mind, your anchor text has to be relevant, and ranking doesn't happen overnight. Try looking for some high PR backlinks to your frontpage.

    It's quite old. About 2 months at least. I've fine tuned it to be relevant to keywords. It has 135 links from 28 domains.

    Depending on what your product is you can focus on hitting page 1 of the big G using social sites. I usually get 7/10 to hit #1 within a few hours using digg, but it really depends how many people are searching for it. But if you submit your site to lots of social sites w/ different keywords you'll rank high so long as you get people to 'digg' it or 'reddit' or 'stumble' it but you need to focus on finding searched terms related to your product first. IMO this is the best method for CB because you can set-up lots of campaigns and traffic will start to flow especially if you're #1 for a keyword that gets 1000+ searches per day.

    Try yahoo groups, google groups. Just join maybe 20 groups somewhat related to your product on both sites and submit different articles every few days and traffic will increase.

    I recently tried out torrent sites with CB products and it worked out okay, if you can be bothered to re-upload with a different name but it depends on whether the product would interest a torrent downloader but you can definitely get a few sales & more traffic from using torrents.

    Also if you can afford it, adwords :p some dirt cheap clicks between 10-20c would increase targeted traffic and definitely bring in some sales.

    2 months is young, very young in fact, not old. :D

    Aged domains get more loving in the organic serps than new domains.

    I have problems using craigslist and similar sites because I am not from usa and they dont like my IP. I downloaded SEnuke and bookmarking demon but haven't used it yet. I have launched IBP on it and also RSS submit program.

    Panique, I actually am doing everything mentioned on your site. That is why I am getting those 600 visitors. Maybe I have to scale it up, but I can't do it forever, I want to eventually get constant automated traffic.

    How many backlinks do you guys think I should have?

    gtfokthx, what torrent tactic did you use for promoting CB?

    How many backlinks you need depends on your niche as well as on the quality of your backlinks. To get quality links you can sign up at photo communities like:
    photosig.c0m
    pbase.c0m
    fotolog.c0m ...
    and write a lil text on your profile site with a link in it..or two:p
    Make sure the SEs index your profile site by writing comments to famous pics by other users. Mostly your profile page get linked with your username.
    You can make the same with video communities;)

    I hope it's possible to understand my english...

    I just upload a general article about the product, make it sound sexy and direct to your landing page at the end of the e-book, and either re-upload with a different title/upload a different article each time. Works well if you have a prog like torrent blaster.
