    WTF? What is it that I may be doing wrong?

    I made a Click bank review site. Its for music and all the items are click bank items.

    I rank #1, #3, #5, #5, #7, #10 and the rest are second and third page for keywords.

    I looked at my stats and some have 68 hops and 7 order form impresions but I take it when they go to the order form they dont buy? What gives.

    Hell the price is not hidden from them as its all over the fucking site when they go there so is it something I am doing wrong or what?

    Any advice?

    This is a really common problem. It depends on a few main factors. Firstly - is the product you are promoting any good? Is the gravity high? Lots of times the actual sales page isn't great and will have people pressing the back button in no time. Secondly is your review well written? This can be a huge influence for pre-sell reasons. Most reviews now are very poor and are in essence hard-sell which is very off-putting. They scream "please buy this through my affiliate link!!" rather than genuinley trying to provide an honest review.

    Is this site monetized any other way?? With those positions and rankings you could probably get a decent CTR with adsense providing the keyword search volume is high.

    So, maybe your review needs to be more sincere, and perhaps the chosen product's landing page is simply not converting well enough. In that case, maybe you should pick a different product.

    Bad product. Shut down the whole operation and choose a new one.

    Thanx guys..all reviews are 500 words + so its just not buy me type shit. Again they are clicking the link to go to the product they just dont complete the order :/

    This template does not have a space for adsense so I am missing out there come to think about it. Im going to check on that LOL thanx!

    Edit --> no this template does not allow for extra banners so no adsense...But here just for the month of march, per product here is my results and you can tell me if its my site OR this products...

    Product 1/Hops = 62/order form impression = 8
    Product 2/Hops =1/order form impressions = 0
    Product 3/Hops =7/order form impressions = 1
    Product 4/Hops =2/order form impressions = 0
    Product 5/Hops =4/order form impressions = 0
    Product 6/Hops =2/order form impressions = 0
    Product 7/Hops =6/order form impressions = 2
    Product 8/Hops =4/order form impressions = 1

    So of course my Product 1 is getting the most but damn why do they leave the order form page???

    think it doesn't have anything to do with ur review. it's the product u're promoting. perhaps, a minute before your visitors click that check out button they realiza it's an unworthy garbage they're buying.

    try to pick products with more sense to promote.
    hope it helps

    Why don't you make them feel special? The most common black hat tactic is "This shit costs xx$ but just because you are COOL , I'll give you discount!" .
    Share some of your earning with your clients. It always works like a charm. If you get 30$ from a sale, why don't you give them 5$ back? They would appreciate it and will come back. And they will tell their friends.
    You just need to check if this isn't against ClickBank rules.
    Good luck!

    I must agree with this. In this situation it pays to smother people with their own egos. Everyone loves to be loved, and even more so when it is you showing their wallet love.

    Some people actually buy into thinking people care about their customers. Perhaps you should set yourself apart, and do just that.

    Hell, I get all giddy when someone at Dunkn Donuts gives me a large latte instead of a medium.
