    I have a comparison site for web hostings, I used bing ads, got visits, got around 200 clicks on affiliate links, spent around 1K$ but only 1 conversion!
    What is wrong?!
    Maybe I should target only US ,Canada??
    Maybe India's clicks are not converting?
    When I targeted only US, Canada, Australia, UK it was not better

    Any Ideas??

    Thanks for the answer!
    What do you mean by ppc terms and info terms?
    I tried Phrase, Broad, Exact, I have keywords list of 5K keywords and nothing converted

    Sounds like you need to only bid on terms where people are about to purchase. If you have 5k keyword you've probably got a ton of traffic that's not ready to buy anything yet.

    The problem is that there is no key word like "I want to buy webhosting and the first link I see I will buy it" :)
    Most of my clicks are coming from keywords like "web host" , "web hosting" , "cheap web hosting" which are the most expensive keywords
    And the huge keywords list is generated from competitors. and consists many variation of the main keywords (I guess its in order to use exact match and avoid bad vatiation of broad/phrase?)
    So I guess the keywords are fine.
    What else could be an issue?

    What's the offer you're promoting? If people are searching for cheap web hosting are you sending them to budget hosting or the same offer that people get when they search for WordPress hosting?

    I just promote the deals of the hosting providers, and I do get clicks on the affiliate links. it seems strange that from sending 200 people to web hosting sites I get only one sale. don't you think?
