maybe you should mention the price of the product or offers if any in the ad..

Does letting them appear on content network matter.

it's possible that you are getting some junk traffic from content, maybe you could switch it off for a while and then see results.

One obvious reason ...Landing page not well designed from a marketing angle..

Try to look at it from what people WANT when they click your ad. Is your ad well targetted, to the point or does it mislead people into clicking ..and then they do not find what they want?

Also what about keywords...are they targeted?
And what about clickbank reporting? Is it close to real time or does it take a while to actually show conversions?

You may want to restrict your campaign to Search results only, as Content Network is click fraud-filled and can run up some serious costs in a hurry. Better to fine-tune your LP and ads first.

As I said I am an affiliate linking to another site which is not mine so I cannot add adsense. Maybe its the landing page. Can you recommend any well converting affiliate programs. Thanks

No, you didn't say that. You said you promote Clickbank as an affiliate. As it appears you are now saying you don't have your own website, you just put the affiliate link in your Adwords ad, is that correct? If that is the case you really should study the merchants landing page very well. And start a thread about this in the affiliate forum. People there can perhaps help you better with your question because Adwords might not be the problem.

Adsense on the landing page (had you had one) would probably only kill your quality score leading to ridiculously inflated bid prices anyway, so forget that.

My advice; no one's going to hand you the holy grail you gotta find it for yourself. That's the nature of the Google Cash game that I assume your playing. Profitable products can be as rare as hen's teeth so when you find them you keep them to yourself and milk them for all they're worth while you can.

Try this; if you're promoting predominantly Cbank products there is some useful free software that you can use to identify new products and study ranking trends. Pick things that are fairly new and trending up. Pick an assortment of different products and set up ad campaigns. If after a decent amount of clicks the product is showing a loss (I suggest 300-500) get rid of it and try something else. Though some of these could come good after a little more time I think it's best to be ruthless with your culling. When you find a product that converts, ramp up your efforts & refine your campaign to maximise profits. Over time you learn which niches work best for you.

All the best.

If that's the case you better stop spending money on affiliate marketing for a while. First find the affiliate forum (I'll give you a hint: it's mentioned at www.webmasterworld.com/home.htm), do some good and long reading and then tweak and activate your campaigns again.
