Hello,
I have just recently (a couple weeks ago) set up a new ClickBank account and set up some ads and links to one product. I have sent some very targeted people to the link (I think) around 60 people, but have not gotten any numbers on my pay reports.

The clickbank marketplace looks soo spammy that I am unsure what to think. And I have found some fraudulent looking products for sale (suprnova for example - which has been closed down a while ago I thought and is now trying to sell accounts (possibly to unknowing visitors).

I was just wondering if anyone knows if ClickBank is legit and what experiences they have had with. Should I continue putting money into sending users to my links?

Thanks,
John

Has anyone on ww ever earned any commission on CB? I put a link up last week on a popular page to test - but no sales so far.

I did, but the funny thing is, I had a page with few similar products. 6, to be precise. I got comissions from only 2 of them, and according to CB stats, they were not the top performers, best ones never sold or never got tracked for some reason. But who knows, may be problem was in my copy.

oooh boy, I hope they are legit, I am spending 50 bucks a day sending traffic to them to see if I can learn how to use adWords correctly. Tomorrow will be day 1.

I have cashed many checks from CB so I would say they are legit. It's some of the products they sell that I would worry about and their refund policy.

Their stats page is worse than useless - it doesn't show click throughs - makes it more difficult to see what the problems might be.

Just wonder why copycats don't do a cb. Someone else could do better than the people running clickbank.

Yeah CB does seem a little sloppy/antiquated from a technological perspective. But there are other programs out there.

Wht I'm wondering is how quickly they update stats?

I did CB for a bit doing the "AdWords" route. I made comissions, but never broke even. In time, I might have but I too became more and more dissatisfied with the level of products available to promote. In the AdWords arena, there is a LOT of competition for the decent products that convert resonably well (at least the ones I felt comfortable promoting).

I don't think they are legit.

Judging by their interface, the website was set up and is run by an eleven year old.

(disclaimer: only joking - though their control really really annoys me)
