    I have actually tried the system where you use Adwords to promote affiliate products, and it just did not work for me. I was able to sell some product, but my advertisement cost always exceeded my commissions.

    • Bill Masson (WWAH)No Gravatar

      @Adam, I can sympathise with you, its a tough game out there. I guess it comes down to how you do your keyword research. Its something you have to experiment with,depending on what you are targeting. You have to be on the ball and constantly check your costs, if a any particular keyword is not performing then drop it and bid for another. Depending on your strategy you may find better luck by going for smaller niches. Your ad can make you or break you as well, maybe you should start putting your own landing pages up, there are plenty of good themes that you can use to chop and change as needed.

      Thanks for your comment

    Thanks - very interesting. I’m sure I’ll get into Affiliate Marketing some time soon and I guess this is a good place to start.

    My blog is still far from attempting affiliate marketing. It’s still new and I have yet to reach my target number of traffic. Once everything falls into place and traffic becomes stable, then maybe I would be open to joining and advertising affiliate programs.

    Guys - Is it true that Google’s rankings have been cracked? I read on CNET that http://VerifiedFile.com has pissed off Google & Yahoo with some crazy method to stealing on the top ranks.
