ClickBank PUBLISHERS: Something to be careful about...

by 6 comments
Hola People,

I'm developing some stuff for ClickBank and figured I'd share something I just found out.

When you're filling out information to go in their MarketPlace, do not use the "|" symbol to try and be different.

EX: this | that | and | the | other

Now, I "may" be mistaken; BUT, what I found is that out of 7500 products (currently) in the CB MarketPlace all of the Vendors using the "|" symbol in either their product/service Title and/or Description had terrible Gravity.

My Theory...
ClickBank recently released a script which parses their XML feed which spits the data out into a data file which is delimited by the "|" symbol.

I'm sure there are more than a few using this script and IF importing to something 'after' using the script the extra "|" symbols will prevent those products/services from being imported correctly.

If error reporting isn't being used; (or the developer or user just doesn't wanna take the time to correct the syntax); those products/services will just be "dropped".

Normally, I wouldn't think much of this but there were some decent products/services in that batch that would have been dropped due to the use of the "|" symbol; yet, (like I said above), the Gravity SUCKED.

So, just some info for you guys to think about.

      Hi TecHead,

      The 3rd most popular Clickbank product in the Health and Fitness category uses "|" in the description. It has a gravity of 194.85.

      Just thought this might be something you need to know or investigate in.

    How long did it take you to go through all 7500 CB vendors to find the ones using the "|"?
