Can you promote CPA offers via Google Adwords?

21 replies
Hello fellow warriors,

I recently have been Google slapped for the third time. I also had a Google Account suspended in the past due to a violation of their site policy/landing pages. It is becoming more and more vague and easier to get that suspension.

Now I realise that Adwords hates affiliate marketers. They are making our lives more and more difficult. I know they don't like it if you direct link to clickbank products or have landing pages for clickbank products, at least that has been my experience with them.

Now I am going to focus on CPA/pay per lead generation as my efforts promoting clickbank products have frankly been a waste of time and money.

I know that PPC seems to be a big part of the strategy for CPA promotion. I also know there are other platforms you can utilise to promote CPA offers, but to neglect Google Adwords (which accounts for 70% of search engine traffic) would be silly.

My question is, how does Google Adwords view microsites, mini-sites that promote CPA offers? In particular, pay per lead generators, like email signups, zip sign ups etc?

Is that also something that will get you suspended? Is there a way around that?

Your input would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Mark

    You need to build sites like mint.com for example. That is one-line answer to your question.

      Thanks- but that seems like an awful lot of work. I mean i am not complaining about the work, but I am wondering if there is a more efficient way to do it.

      Also does the example of mint.com covert? There has to be another way....

    Highly doubt there is another way. That is more long-term. You need to make it unique, not just pages with text and offer. Maybe there is another way, they want know that other way, simply everyone doing is build big sites(yes, with lots of content) and that is! That is not enough, and everyone doing it. You need to do it in other way

    If you remove the affiliate related stuff from your site, (ie all the ads and stuff) what do you have left on your site? Is there any content? Put a couple informational posts on your website and your site wont look so obvious. Hope this helps.

    You need to be careful when using AdWords. You can promote dating sites and other similar offers with simple landing pages, but email/zip submits are a no no and free trials and other rebills need to be promoted with opt-in landers (you capture leads and then send an email series).

    In regards to promoting CPA offers via PPC traffic, you should really try using MSN adcenter first to test the offer see if you are generating traffic, impressions, conversions. After you have optimized your campaign to the point where you are making a decent profit, than expand out to third tier PPC networks such as 7search, or go to Google Adwords CONTENT network.

    I know everyone wants to use Google Adwords due to its butt loads of traffic, but you need to understand as an affiliate, your site will NOT be Adwords suitable. Unless you develop a website that is USER friendly, has backlinks, has content, and looks like a good website or blog. Usually it takes time to build such a site, so if you really want to speed things up, test your CPA campaign on MSN first, than go onto Google CONTENT network, or use other PPC networks such as 7search.

    Those are my two cents

      Because adwords is extremely easy to manage once you find something Google likes, and traffic and profit can be HUGE.

          Actually, it doesn't need to be all that hard. You just need to learn how to build landing pages for Google. If you know how to create good opt-in landing pages and profit along a week or so you can promote pretty much anything with Google.

            why not focus on other ppc methods like msn and yahoo. Both good viable ppc networks and still allows you to drive enough sufficient traffic.

    7Search.com generates over 3.5 billion searches monthly with a low CPC. If you are looking to expand outside of Adwords and Adcenter please let me know and I will be glad to share more details with how 7Search can be a viable option for you. bstanley at 7search dot com is going to be the best way to reach me. I look forward to the opportunity to serve your business.

    Adwords has a lot of traffic but its tougher and tougher. Still possible and lots are doing it, but normally you need more established and content heavy landers meaning its harder to convert.

    If you have experience you can still do adwords but I wouldnt make it my first stop if you are a newer marketer!

    We allow you to promote offers via google adwords but if you are caught using one of our "not allowed" keywords, you will be removed from that ad and possibly banned without pay.
