    I'm promoting my site: http://josiesrecipeguide.com

    After someone visits the site, after 5 seconds a content locker pops up if they're a US/UK based visitor (please let me know if your US/UK and you visit the site and it doesn't show up).

    I've sent over 100 uniques to the site from the US and haven't gotten a single click on an offer, not even to view it... let alone a sign up.

    I'm curious what some others on here are doing to promote their CPA on an "authority site". I read something about using CPA banners, which I assume is like a Google adsense banner, but directs to my CPA offer instead.

    I assume this might work better since I'm not making it seem like I'm forcing the user to sign up.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I expect my traffic to increase greatly over the next 4 weeks.

    sprice,

    I didn't get the pop ups and my Google Taq assist plugin said there were 8 errors on your page.

    I'd put one of your products on the side advertisement bar above the fold and also add a picture of yourself with an "about me" paragraph to build trust.

    Yeah, no pop-up here either but I did see the browser tab re-scroll like it was trying to run something after about 5 seconds.

    Thanks guys. I'll have to look into why it's not showing up. I'm new to content locking and Content Lock Pro so I've still got some learning to do.

    I assume that's the reason I haven't gotten a single click though.

    Thanks in advance.

    Stupid me, I just realized I can check it going incognito. It's not allowing me to scroll, wondering why it does for you... def. an ugly looking locker though.

    Now I can change it up and actually view the changes.

    The content locker show up for me. I would advice you to increase the time delay to 13 second. Or if you have a recpie guide in downloadbale format then locking the download will definitely increase the CR and may bring in some conversions.

    No money in recipes. That is a freebie niche, it will never convert.

    Nope. I don't expect anyone to click on the offer and fill in their email. Just trying to get this working.

    Really? That's odd because I'm seeing it now. Only on the homepage though. I need to add the code somewhere to show it sitewide.

    I've increased the time delay to 10 seconds as it did seem a little quick. I've actually thought about doing something along those lines. But for now I'm simply trying to get something working and focus more on increasing traffic... then I'll start testing different monetization methods in a week or two.

    CPA is not for this site. Use adsense or clickbank for gourmet recipe books or something similar. Could also use Amazon for selling recipe books or similar books in this niche.

    Good luck

    Hmmm... never appeared for me. I let it load for about a minute, and tried multiple times. I'm on Safari in the US
