Set up everything yesterday, tracking, adwords accounts, etc. Spend about $10.00 on testing KW groups yesterday and spent $10.00 between 6pm yesterday and 8am this morning and banked $150.00



Talk about cheap advertising.

Wanted to post a shorty this morning. Anyone newbies that needs tips, hollar.

    It's very strange. When I tried Adwords 1 click cost me about 2-3 dollars or more in diet niche...

      Is your LP something like a niche site or just a one pager linking to your offer? I did an adword campaign for an LP focused on a product, much like a gateway and got my account suspended.
      The offer must have had a pre/post pop maybe? Only time I ever got poped was direct linking through cloaked links and switching the links once the campaign was approved. Sorry to hear friend.

      You need to do more research and don't pick such direct discreet keyword. I wasted a lot of the first half of my budget on $2-$3 KWs. Make sure you create different Ad Groups and pause them and test the next ad group. I spent actually $20 on testing now that I went back and looked at my overall page. :rolleyes:

      Only cloaking I'm using is Prosper202, I use their landing page code in a php file that is the actual link they click to go to the site.

        Enjoy while it lasts Google might soon ban you for cloaking diet offers with a simple bridge page...But however nice ROI on that campaign...

          They must like it if they are allowing me to use pharmacy only keywords only after approval. Hater.

            Anyway congrats OP.
            A bridge page is exactly that; a page that Google considers to be simply a "bridge" between the ad and third page, typically an affiliate offer.

            They don't like these because normally they don't provide much value and tend to just pre-sell the cold traffic more than anything else. Google wants visitors to stay on the page you're promoting; not for them to be immediately referred somewhere else. If you're promoting a bridge page chances are that Google won't even approve it. Unless of course you're cloaking.

            In which case your AdWords account probably won't last too long.

            If you're serious about using AdWords for a long time to come, I'd suggest reading their rules and guidelines before even submitting your first ad.

    Congrats OP. That is well done.

    I don't understand what LP means.

    I avoid PPC because it costs so much to test and fine paying word. And so many people have lost money. I spent some money on The Content Network, I think it is called, anywaya, ads on sites. I never made a penny out of it, so I quit that crap.

    Sounds like you found the keys to the volt, so cash in while it lasts. Way to go.

      don't jump around... focus on one traffic source until you make it, if possible...
