    I watched a guide to selecting CB products but when I follow it through I find there are practically no products that fall within my normal KW "green light" strategy.

    The guide advised we choose products with a gravity of no more than 50 and with a $ per sale of at least $ 20.

    From this point onwards I look at the keywords of the products that come up. Put them into Google Keyword Tool. If they have over 1000 exact searches a month I then do a competitor check with Market Samurai and check to see how strong the first page is.

    I am struggling to find any products that give me the green light.

    Are my original filters for CB ok or am I being too picky ?

    I would say you might be being a little too picky. The gravity should be a little higher, in my opinion. That way, you know that there is some competition and that there are also sales. Then, you need to identify your keywords well. If you aren't getting that 'green' light, chase a few long-tail keywords that will rank easier. You might find that a particular product is well represented in a market but the competition is really weak or thin with their content. Just give it a shot....what do you have to lose? The experience and trial-and-error will make you better in the long run. Eventually, you will develop a certain 'nose' for which products are good/bad to promote/review.

    If you pick a product that is good, has a solid looking sales page that can convert well on it's own, and something of value to others, it is worth the investment to build a quick site for it. Run some tests and create good content. Even if it has trouble ranking, you can always direct link to your site through a forum post or on a blog comment in response to someone looking for a product like the one you're promoting. This does two things - creates a backlink to your site to help increase traffic in the search engines and sends targeted traffic right to your offer and then off to the product page.

    New products are launched all the time and once you find a couple of solid earners, you will eventually become notified of upcoming product launches by those same advertisers. Stick with it and test, test, test! If something is not converting well for you, time to experiment with another method.

    I tend to pick products that are in related niches so that I can promote new products directly to my e-mail lists. If someone subscribed to a promotion or review page in the past or made a purchase, these individuals will be hungry for more later. This is my go-to list when I need a little extra money for the month. Interact with your visitors, build trust, then sell them!

    What numbers would you recommend for the filters-as an approximation ?
