    First, 26 clicks is not enough traffic to guage much of anything. Second, if you're just starting out, i would practice with the nickel clicks, not 60 cents.

    My first week of affiliate marketing was putting every Barnes and Noble banner i could find on a blank page and asking people which ones looked the best

    I don't do PPC and never have. Did you buy a book or something that taught you how to do it that way?
