    First PPC Affiliate Not Working Out
    OK, I got banned before... because I guess it looked like I was trying to promote my affiliate deal but I really wasn't.

    I won't post the link this time, that should solve it.

    Anyway, I signed up for an affiliate program, and I made a landing page that basically talks about the benefits of the product and each time I mention the company I have an affiliate link instead of the name.

    Anyway, I started a PPC campaign and no ones been clicking the links! People just come and then leave the site.


    Thoughts?

    PPC isn't easy - I spent more than I care to admit in the first few months of my first site.

    Seeing the levels of traffic you can achieve is a rush, but you really have to know what you're doing, conversion-wise.

    Stop the PPC until you have established a conversion rate for your page. Right now you're spending money on visitors that aren't converting, and many of us have been there... you need to work on conversion, not spend more money.

    Do extensive keyword research before launching a PPC campaign. For this you need to figure out what kind of audience converts best on your landing page. Test, test, test.

    Hey Guys,

    The problem is ppc is really what I'm most excited about.

    I don't have any interest in SEO.

    Is everyone here just doing SEO?

    You were banned because newbies are not allowed to add links to their posts. I moved that post to the review forum here: http://www.abestweb.com/forums/site-...ed-151884.html
