    I've been trying for two years to make a single cent. I've literally tried every free method to no avail that doesn't dip too far into blackhat.

    Anyways, I finally became tired enough to use stupid facebook spamming that seem to be popular lately (download a bot, have it post every 15 minutes promoting an affiliate product).

    I never tried it before because it's silly in concept; who is stupid enough to click on a website link on twitter that says "Forex secrets! Makes thousands" or the other horrible clickbank squeeze pages that people started to catch on to in 2010.

    But alas, I look at my clickbank stats to see that I received over 100 hops yesterday. No sales, but that's more hops to my affiliate links than I've received in 2 years.

    Any advice on how to make this more profitable? Since I have barely any followers (4), I'm guessing people are finding my tweets just searching for keywords. I'm guessing noone buys because they click on the link, then press the back button when they see the spammy clickbank product squeeze page.

    Visit SEOmoz's website (google seomoz). If you have been trying for 2 years without success it's because you are ignorant of all there is to know about proper SEO. That site is worth gold. Enjoy and goodluck!

    Normally, those type of bots are run from a series of accounts that are hacked and stolen from members that have high traffic/fan/follower bases established already. That would mostlikely explain away the jump in your ' hops ' to your page. However, if you are getting people to check this out through those types of crappy automated ads, they are newbies and novices that use the internet for checking email and gaming.

    If you are going to take the chance, I wouldn't count on getting anything morethan a few more than you are now, as the smarter ones that find your ad will report you for spamming to clickbank by your affiliate link in the url, as well as to facebook, killing that account, be it your's or anyone elses.

    Best of luck with it eitherway, as short-lived as spamming facebook is.
