Hurrah! Clickbank Changes!

Thursday, November 30th, 2006

I have been off doing other things for over a week so I have only just got around to reviewing the recent account management changes over at Clickbank. Finally we now have the ability to assign tracking codes to hoplinks. No more need to have multiple accounts to track sales! You can now identify where […]

Why Affiliate Projectx Sucks for you and me!

Wednesday, November 15th, 2006

I bought Affiliate Projectx a few weeks ago. If you have been following any of the recent affiliate product launches then you will know this has been heavily promoted as the best Adwords / Clickbank product marketing guide. To be honest most of these guides just leave me cold, all hype and no substance. The […]

Nasty Computer Fire Photos…

Friday, November 10th, 2006

Chris Carpenter (of Google Cash fame) has had an office / computer fire which destroyed his laptop along with the latest update to Google cash. Check out the photos over at his blog, yikes! Apparently it looks like the initial cause was a lightning strike. No one was hurt but it sure looks to have done some […]

Adsense Arbitrage Debate Revisited

Thursday, November 9th, 2006

Its been quite a while since I last revisted the whole Adsense PPC arbitrage debate. For me the issue went dead when the Adwords “Slap” changes went live a few months ago. It became pretty much impossible to push Adwords traffic to your site with Adsense on it and make a profit purely off the adsense […]

Wednesday, November 8th, 2006

Friday, November 3rd, 2006

Following on from yesterdays post about using the Clickbank Marketplace XML feed, I have extracted the top 60 clickbank product details ranked on gravity. Gravity is a clickbank term that basically is a measure of popularity amongst many other things (don’t be misled by the popularity field itself, the gravity figure is the better one for chosing […]

Clickbank Marketplace Research

Thursday, November 2nd, 2006

Today I have been doing some Clickbank product research. As you may know the Clickbank website went through a bit of an overhaul some weeks ago. Although its much improved I still find it hard to actually do much product research from the Clickbank Marketplace pages. A web based interface is just too restricted to […]
