    So I decided to get my foot in the clickbank game and the first week went great or so I thought. I started writing articles everyday and saw sales happen within the first week. Then I noticed eventually only one of the products were really making sales. Its been about 3 weeks everyday writing articles and still only one of the first ones I wrote are making any type of sales. I made one or two random sales off other products, but now it seems no matter what product I choose nothing makes sales, gets views etc. I feel bad for wasting so much time writing useless articles.

    Is there anyway to choose good clickbank products to sell for article writing? I read different things everywhere such as choose things from 10-60 gravity. Or that gravity doesn't matter just choose newest products. I've tried different ways of choosing products but I feel like i'm at a dead end choosing bad products and wasting time writing articles for them. Any advice is appreciated! :)

    Maybe you should drop the others and just scale up on where you had your success.

    The best niches have some emotional angle where the surfer really needs a solution.

    Also, are you choosing your keywords effectively? If so, what are your critieria? Because if you don't have any criteria then you are not doing keyword selection properly.

    10 to 60 gravity is not a bad idea. Stick with that for now.

    To summarize: the right niche and the right keywords are essential. This assume your articles are written well.

    When I look for keywords I just pull up google keywords and look for long names that have low competition and high monthly searches. Is this a bad way of going about finding keywords?

    Well thats the right way to do it. You should also download market samurai for example. To analyze the first page competition. There are lots of sites with no onsite seo for many longtail keywords which can be outranked quite easy.

    "Competition" is PPC competition. Or are you checking Google page one or results count in quotes or something else?

    And how high is "high"?

    You could be doing completely the wrong thing without even realising it.

    Agreed. If you sympathize with the potential customer as if you have felt their pain and been in their situation it's a big plus, that gains trust and therefore it looks like you're helping them out rather than using them. Research is key.

    I have been writing articles on the sympathy side, not as a sales pitch. I have been searching keywords using google adwords which is for ppc I guess. Not sure how to guess which keywords work on the actual google page. I don't think the articles i'm writing are bad, they just aren't getting much views at all, some even 0 or 1 view hah. I suppose I need to figure out how to do keyword research, thats the confusing part.
