    Yeah, either get your AM to provide one for you or pay someone else to make one for you. Or you can just use a blog, but you still have to make it look like a landing page for that to work.

    Any of these things could work.

    Let me know which way you decide to go.

    Well, that depends on what CPC Engine you're using. With AdWords, you can pass it in the destination URL with something like:

    http://www.landingpage.com/lp.php?kw={keyword}

    With Yahoo!, you have to turn it on for it to work and then they're passed in the variable OVRAW.

    Well, I personally set a cookie that tells me what keyword got the user there initially. That way, it doesn't matter what page they land on as long as they have cookies turned on.

    Sadly, not everyone does.

    Hey Scott, any chance this offer is still on the table? I'm tanking with AF and if you have any programs, I would be really interested in learning or hearing more.

    Thanks!

    When you say stuffing keywords and such, what exactly do you mean? I'm a little puzzled around the whole keyword topic and having 1000s of them. Thanks

    Copeac's interface is confusing.

    What does this mean:

    "Click here to view the contextual link. Please be advised that this link is to be used for contextual traffic ONLY. "

    Will this show me my affiliate link. Also are ppc search engines(adwords,ysm,etc) counted as contextual traffic?

    this means that you need a landing page, doesn't matter where you traffic come from; adwords, ysm, adcencer etc

    Yeah, they don't want PPC (Pay Per Click) traffic. They want traffic from a website with related information on it, much like you'd place on a page you'd want Google AdSense to display contextual ads for.

    Hi Everyone,

    You know I've been at the Azoogle game now for a couple months, since October. I've still yet to find a good campaign.

    The thing is, everything I try just seems to fail. One day it'll give amazing results, and then plop - I get no more conversions. I don't understand the volatility in all of this.

    For example, I had a bizz opp offer I was running at $0.10 a click off YSM. I didn't get many clicks, but within 4 days I spent $9.76 and got 2 conversions. This was a HIGH payout CPA product, and so I got $84 in my Azoogle account from only $9.76.

    Of course I was jumping for joy. I never saw such a thing, and I decided right away to increase my bid to $0.50 - I had a $1.15 EPC in Azoogle. I figured I would get more clicks and more conversions and finally make a decent income.

    But, what happened isn't what you might think.

    I spent nearly 40 dollars for 110 clicks, and I got NO conversions. Before it took me 100 clicks for 2 conversions, and now I got nothing.

    I don't understand. I suppose everything happens randomly and that because its a high CPA payout that its not something I can track easily without sending thousands of visitors.

    Now I'm lost. Its not the first time I've jumped for joy about a campaign only to see the next day everything goes sour. Today I'm over a thousand dollars down with about $600 in revenue, but I have yet to get out of the whole and make my first dollar of profit.

    The thing is, I'm pretty familiar with everything. I've read alot and I know what the basic concepts are. Its just nothing seems to work. I've started over 30 campaigns in the last few months just to find they don't work. I've tried direct linking, landing pages, you name it. Every trick I tried. It just seems I'm not getting anywhere.

    However, behind every successful man are many unseccessful years.

    And thats why I'm not giving up. THERE is a profitable campaign waiting out there for me, and with every mistake I make I learn. I'm getting closer and closer, and perhaps a little help here is what will get me there.

    Thanks in advance for offering such information out here in the open for all of us here at DP. I appreciate it and I'm sure everyone else does too.

    Keep on smiling!

    Damian
