    Good stuff buddy! However, I thought you MUST have a landing page as google don't allow direct linking?

    This is not correct.

    Google DO allow direct linking as long as your "Display URL:" matches the URL of the website the user ends up on.

    Example.

    Display URL: www.Website.com
    Destination URL: www.ReDirect.com/affiliate_code=???/website

    In this example the destination URL will redirect to Website.com so the Display URL matches the final URL that the user who clicks the advert ends up on.

    As long as the Display URL and the URL of the page the user ends up on match then its fine by Google

    :cool:

    Thanks for your comments!

    Now make sure you take ACTION as most people keep reading ebooks and then buy more ebooks and read some more but never take action on what they know.

    Good luck.

    Thank for the guide. Really simple to follow.

    I haven't had much luck getting approved for Neverblueads. Will signing up thru your link make it easier?

    Yes i agree, but your quality score will be much lower.
    I advice you grab a .info domain they are cheap anyway.

    Thanks for the PM. I recently tried signing up again for Neverblueads thru the abestweb.com offer. Still waiting for their reply. If that doesn't go thru, I'll try your suggestion next.

    Your QS should be OK as the pages you are directing traffic too are quality pages.

    Also Google have recently banned yes BANNED landing pages that have the intention to get the user to click through to the parent affiliate site.

    So be careful when using your own landing pages....

    Many people are sending me PM's asking:

    What is the best way to get approved for CPA networks?

    The short answer is to make sure you know what your talking about and how you will promote the offers (as they will ask you this) also saying you have experience in Internet marketing is a good plus.

    I will be writing a longer guide on this subject so make sure you keep a look out for it.

    Thanks.

    No20, just a couple of things I noticed while scanning through your guide

    a) the example adsense ad you show doesn't even mention the free trial - that would be a huge draw factor.

    b) I am pretty sure the keywords you used for examples are insanely exspensive. If you are not converting you are going to lose a lot of money.

    Look again the second line of the ad does mention the free trial :)
    As for keywords well you have to test what works best for you.

    wait a minute....i am confused with two things here...

    you said it's ok to use direct linking as long as we provide the merchant's website into the URL box in adwords? But many people said you'll only get banned, that's why they created landing pages everywhere...

    And about landing page before we send the traffic to the merchant website, how could it possible you get banned because of this? Tell me plz about how affiliate landing pages get banned.

    OK.

    Many people do NOT know this. But Google DO NOT allow landing pages. It is against Google's TOS if you use a landing page that has the single purpose to direct the user to the parent affiliate site. This is why people get banned from Google.

    Google DO allow you to link directly to the affiliate site. Below I have copied some text from the Google help pages:


    Here is the link to this page:
    https://adwords.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=91451&ctx=sibling

    I hope that clears it up for many people :)
