    the last few days have been a crazy ride for me. I am not going to go into specifics about the niche, but basically what has happened is I made a website about 4 years ago.

    Up until 3 days ago I had completely forgotten about this website. It was a failed experiment as far as I was concerned. I had regretted even paying for the domain name for such a long amount of time.

    So 3 days ago I was bored and decided to check analytics since I own a few sites, most of which are pretty pathetic. then I noticed something, a nice green mark on the page. What is this? 20,000% increase in traffic?

    So I scrambled onto my site and quickly shoved adwords on it, and some affiliate links.

    2 hours later I had made my first £10...holy shit!

    Anyway, it hasn't stopped since then, so I am pretty happy. I just hope it lasts since I have a fear of Google suddenly lowering me. Also the niche I am in may lose interest since it's a bit of a gimmick and will without doubt drop over time.

    My question is this: I am using a certain affiliate program that is not clickbank. Clickbank has a similar product which costs more but also pays more. Do I risk trying it out, and possibly lose customers due to the higher price, or maybe I will get lucky and they will pay the higher price and I will make more.

    Maybe I offer both and let the customer choose between the two? The site is pretty scummy shithole plastered in ads as it is, I think it's better just to give them one choice to be honest.

    It feels hard to make changes to the site now that it is finally working, I don't want to mess this up.

    You need to test this, since we don't know the niche, we can't say if it will convert better or worse. Depends on the niches metrics also, is it a hungry market? How much money usually the buyer spends in the niche and how often? Those are questions you need to ask yourself everytime you wan to enter a niche/change a product.

    What other trustful and tested affiliate programs are there besides CB
    I want to start by creating Squeeze P but I still haven't found a niche to go, and also would like to know more affiliates than just CB

    Thanks
