    Yes 60% of the profit on all orders. In fact more than half of my business is now repeat orders.

    I'm almost sure it does not. What you would have to do is pay for the drugs and then submit the receipt to the insurance company.

    This slightly off topic, but my pharmacy site just went to #1 in MSN for the keyword phrase "prescription drugs". My traffic has really spiked as a result.

    Congrats Bob. I think the new MSN is treating a lot of us very well :D MSN traffic is urging for me - if it keeps pace MSN will pass Google & Yahoo on just about every one of my sites by the end of the month.

    let me ad my congrats too, compar. Was that beta results?

    Also, does your site (or the affiliate site, what I'm really curious about) use froogle feeds?

    No it wasn't the beta. It is www.msn.com. The site is # 2 today.

    And no the site does not use Froogle feed.

    One of the interesting thing which seems to be associated with the good MSN placement is that I've suddenly has a rash of people signing up as affiliates.

    There was a while when Google seemed only to display public service ads on these pages, but recently I noticed they are showing ads for Online Pharmacies.

    I think it is now possible to use AdWords for Pharmacies if you comply with some very stringent requirements that Google sets down. I would guess it is these sites that are showing up in the AdSense ads.

    I wouldn't doubt if these are contracted advertisers that run on a different TOS than the rest of the mill. I know overture has done this before. With most things medical there is a lot of red tape that needs to be watched.

    I was thinking of doing a small site that dealt with pre drugs as a part of my health/fitness site, but i'm just so worried that adsense will kick me

    No AdSense won't kick you. If they don't like the content on a particular page, they will simply show Public Services ads. But as far as online pharmacies go that doesn't even seem to be an issue anymore.

    Whew, that's a relief. I've just read some stories on here, I'm being over cautious.

    You've been a big help, thanks!

    The site has been up and running since Sept 12. Currently I'm making about $2,000 per month from it. My goal is to push that to $10,000 per month.

    I'm not using any email marketing or PPC. All my traffic comes from generic SERPs and established customer who come back to the site to reorder.

    I try and get customer loyalty by sending every customer a coupon offer. My current coupon is a $5.00 off coupon good until March 31.

    compar, looks like you're using a js template and doing well. Think there would be any advantage (SEO or conversions) to going with the XML/SSL option?

    When I signed up there was no XML/SSL template available. I'm reluctant to change the your friendly pharamacy site because it converts so well and also because we have done a fair bit of optimization that would have to be done all over a again with a XML/SSL template, and that exact design is not available as an XML/SSL template.

    However, I have registered a new domain, http://www.happy-meds.com and it is a XML/SSL template. When it starts to attract sales it will be interesting to compare the performance of the two templates.

    If I were starting today I think I would choose a XML/SSL template. There appears to be advantages to this model.
