Overture conversion tracking sucks!

Monday, February 27th, 2006

I was talking to a friend of mine who dabbles in affiliate marketing about conversion scripts. These are the little bits of javascript provided by Adwords and Overture that let you track which of your keywords triggered a sale. You need to give these codes to the vendor of the product you are marketing. If they […]

Location is Irrelevant!

Friday, February 24th, 2006

A distinct lack of posts on the blog this week. Been over the other side of the Pennines with the strange Yorkshire folk most of the week doing some work with the other computer business I am involve in. Meanwhile the affiliate internet biz has been ticking over on autopilot. This month looks like being pretty […]

Keeping up with the Search Engines

Sunday, February 19th, 2006

Keeping up with what the search engines are doing is really important if you are doing any form of Internet marketing. One of the best ways is to get the info straight from those in the know. There are several people working for the big search engines who have blogs. Perhaps the best known of these is […]

Clickbank Adds search, Datafeeds promised shortley.

Wednesday, February 15th, 2006

 Well the search facility is now implemented over at the Clickbank market place. This is the announcement:- “ClickBank has added search capability to both the Marketplace (for affiliates) and Catalog (for shoppers). This new capability streamlines the process of finding the specific products you are looking for. In the updated Marketplace, you can also sort […]

Free Clickbank RSS Feeds

Tuesday, February 14th, 2006

A couple of useful links and tools I have run across recently. As you know Clickbank itself dosent provide RSS feeds (at least not yet!) of its product directory. However if you head on over to Ambatch you’ll find some folks who have built a database of the clickbank directory and provided RSS feeds from […]

Which search engine is best for PPC.

Monday, February 13th, 2006

I have PPC campaigns for clickbank products running on google adwords and yahoo overture. Adwords is by far the easiest to set up, the website interface and tools are slick and easy to use. The Yahoo / oveture interface is in contrast pretty much a disaster area. Like most affiliates I started out using Google adwords […]

Clickbank finally adds search to marketplace listings.

Sunday, February 12th, 2006

Finally Clickbank is going to add a search facility to their markeplace listings. This is one feature that everyone had been requesting for about three years! Why it took so long is anyones guess. This is the annoucement when you login to your account:- “ClickBank is adding search capability to the Marketplace. This enhancement will […]

Domain Registration – how things have changed

Sunday, February 12th, 2006

Just been over at http://www.godaddy.com registering 6 new domains for a mini site project we have just started. It struck me how far things have progressed in terms of how cheap and fast you can set up a new domain these days. A one year registration is just $8.95. I remember when we registered our […]

Clickbank paychecks and how refunds are calculated

Friday, February 10th, 2006

This is for the heavy Clickbank user. If you havent made many sales or dont use clickbank much it wont make much sense. First the basics, how a clickbank paycheck is calculated:- Credits (sales) – Debits (Refunds) + bonus + Release (allowance from 6 Pay Periods ago) Take 10% of that total. This is your allowance […]

Some of the Ebooks and Tools I use for PPC Affiliate Marketing.

Wednesday, February 8th, 2006

When I first started researching the whole PPC Affiliate Marketing business the amount of information available was a bit overwhelming. Every so called “guru” on the internet seems to have some sort of e-book or research tool that will “guarantee” success. A lot of them are frankly just crap. Believe me I own far too […]
