    To all those Pros/money makers who have a positive impact on the community here at BHW. From the knowledge derived from this site I am going to see how quickly i can make a sale with clickbank. I have read and read and read; now I feel that I have a rudimentary understanding of IM. However I have to say I am afraid of being banned from their program after reading horror stories here on the forum. I could ask a million questions and muddle the conversation until no one knows what the hell I am talking about or layout my top 3 and go from there.
    Question 1: CL & YT?
    CANSPAM ACT cramped everyone's style. I get that, driving traffic from CL can be the kiss of death, but why does it appear that people are leaning more towards the YT commenting method. To me it seems just as spammy, but if people feel comfortable using this method then it must have a lower chance of getting you banned from Clickbank somehow. Is this true and if so why?

    Like I always said. CB does not care a damn of how you promoting their products. They just want sales. If complaint, most probably is your competitors who also also in the same niche as yours. Do not worry too much my friend, CB is the playground for beginners. Just do it!

    Question 2: PPC?
    So now they are corralling us to use ppc as the main method of driving traffic to the affiliate offer. OK, but ppc companies don't want us to directly link affiliate links? So what then, a redirect link from my page to the affiliate offer? That seems like the same exact thing to me. The only difference is that people are on my page for half a second. Why am I wrong for thinking this and why is this ok?

    Question 3: So whats left?
    So it would appear as if we have to implement a safe hybridized version of these methods. Lets just say I get 5 P-V-As. For each P-V-A I would use a different ip and create an email, YT-CL. Also as an added measure of safety create a low cost info capture/landing page with each P-V-A. From there once an user clicks my link or paste it into their browser they will fill out the email request form on my landing page. Their email address would be forwarded to a main email account with an aweber.

    So 5 totally different accounts driving traffic to 1 professional looking auto-responder that would have a cloaked affiliate link in the corresponding email. That way there I have an email list to work from monthly and would hopefully get some conversions off of the initial mailing. . BUT I'M STILL WORRIED!!! I will tell you why; Lets say someone, a moderator, signs up for my email and gets my Affiliate link and makes a complaint. AM I PARANOID OR IS THIS A REAL THREAT? IF SO HELP ME AROUND THIS HURDLE!!

    I agree with prab1996. Just do it and you will see what happens. As long as you don't break any law, you will be ok.

    The issue is not so much CB, which is actually quite flexible about how you promote it within reason, but with sites that do not like to see affiliate links. Blogger may ban your blog, or Yahoo Answers ban your account, for example, if you link to affiliate urls. The three main workarounds to this are:

    1) Link to YT or similar Web 2.0 property, that in turn links to the target url. 2) Link to a email submit lead capture/squeeze page, then send emails with your urls to the opt-ins. 3) Offer a free download on a non-affiliate landing page link on the blog or YT page, using an Aweber or similar system, and have the exit or thank you page be the affiliate page.
