    instead of making a landing page, u should redirect to the zip submit using a meta refresh....tht will drastically improve ur conversion....
    though sometimes google adwords will slap ur ads,,, but atleast not for the first 3-4 hours....

    so time ur campaign well....

    because of the extremely expensive CPC these days.. making a profit is not easy...
    two options...

    - switch to adbrite... but they have shitty traffic....

    - start making opt-in email lists using ppc..... then keep mailing these ppl your offers..... you will have much more success doing this.

    yea, i iframed a small part of the zip submit page. i asked neverblue about it, and they said its all good. it still didnt do well enough for my to make money though:(

    meta refresh means a frame redirect right?

    Have you asked them in general or showed them this page where you did it?

    Cause Iframing those fields and writing a misleading landing page is greyhat :p

    i asked them, and showed them my landing page. i asked them for a week straight about it and have email proof they OK'ed it. i already stopped the campaign, so this is all moot.

    also, there is no misleading info on the landing page.

    The fact that you made about half of your money back shows that its promising. I think you should tweak it some more a give it another shot. :)

    i made more than half my money back. and yes, people keep telling me that i should keep tweaking and try again. but i dont think the profit margin is high enough to spend my time on it. i gave all my data away on my blog post, so if youw ant to give it a shot please do. but keep me updated:) what would you suggest changing? maybe you can take a look at my data and let me know.

    thanks. although i lost money, i do see it as a positive experience. i leanred a lot and didnt loose too much:).

    i already started another campaign that is making me good money, only way to make money is to risk a little.

    A little creative idea I thought of is maybe to add a counter on your landing page. For example, you could start it to where it counts down from 30 seconds and maybe say something like "You have (number on counter) seconds before this offer is over". If you want to be more realistic you could probably start the counter off at 1 hour, 26 minutes, and 22 seconds. It might actually help out.
