    I'm making money with CJ literally 10x faster than I am with AdSense, and I haven't even started doing PPC campaigns yet. I love it!

    I run a blog that gets between 400-700 visits per day. It is mostly stumble traffic, but the average person spends about 1.5 mins on my site. Do you think this would be worth getting into CJ?

    Perhaps he knows what he is doing. Build one site, add pages page pages pages of related content.....if you suppose 400 pages and optimize for search engines, you should rank well and thus get good traffic. It all comes down to traffic. Make one site profitable before moving on to the next. Make it work ........then move on.

    Good approach. But is 400 pages really needed? Totally agree that you need good content. But I can get to the first page of Google with less than 400.

    CJ pays out well. All of my sites bring in a decent amount of change every month and CJ has a lot of affiliates to work with.

    Nope, my traffic comes from a targeted demographic that I *KNOW* will give my affiliate program a try...and my site is pretty good as an incentive to get people to sign up. Check my sig out if you want, lol

    400 pages..!!! I do it with 1 or 2 pages. You just need to target the keywords and product names that people are looking for.

    I made 1 post on a blog in November and made 1 article post at the same time then followed that up with another post10 days later. That has resulted in over $17,000 worth of commission and $200,000 worth of sales for the merchant. 4 months later and the blog is still getting 300 visitors per day. Not bad for about an hours work.

    Theres no tricks, no magic page generating software software and no cost you just need to presell the product as you are sending directly to the checkout.

    Both CJ and Clickbank out perform adsense by a huge margin. my ecpm on clickbank is over 100 times higher than adsense for every 1000 visitors to clcikbank i make $440 compared to $30 for 1000 adsense clicks. Ok I appreciate it's not really comparing like for like and it's harder to get 1000 people to go to CB or CJ as it is to click an adsesne ad but it is worth the extra effort.

    Tommo, I assume CJ accepts you in a lot of porgrams (you are in Spain, that's why I am asking), correct ?

    They do now...!! It was a real struggle for me to get accepted to most programs. I had to email all the affiliate managers and still got very few replies accepting me. Strangely enough the same affiliate managers are now emailing me asking me to be an affiliate. :)

    It gives me great pleasure to point out that they wouldn't accept me last year!

    The problem isn't actually CJ it's the short sighted affiliate managers who set the program rules.

    I actually wrote an article about this for a magazine last month. If you want to read it you'll find it in the free affiliate classroom magazine http://www.affiliateclassroom.com/

    whats a good cj click through rate on a blog ?

    We are at around 1% but I guess the impressions figure is inflated by us going on to do admin chores etc

    Thats a difficult question to answer as it will vary from site to site and depends on how you get your traffic.

    If it's via article marketing which i use I find that a good article has a 20-30% clickthrough to the blog. Those people are usually buyers and are presold on the product so the clickthrough via the Cj link is pretty high.

    The stats from last month are..

    Clicks 9,003
    Impressions 11,422
    CTR 78.82%

    And Nov/dec are

    Clicks 27,292
    Impressions 40,606
    CTR 67.21%

    At first I thought, WOW but then I realised that these are following a call to action rather than just a passive ad on a blog.

    Thanks
