How the #$&! is this product ranked so high in Clickbank?

Hey guys, John Casement here. This isn't a thread about anything negative regarding a product, so please don't take it to be. I'm just very confused! I've been doing niche research in many niches for the past few weeks, and I just stumbled upon a doozy that I just can't figure out. When looking at the weight loss niche, a new product has recently surfaced, called strip that fat. It currently has a gravity of 97; and is ranked very highly in Clickbank (Top 5 in a couple of categories). Here's where my dazed and confused look sets in:

My understanding of Clickbank Gravity is that it is the number of different affiliates that have made a sale in the past 8 weeks for that product, pro-rated to rank the most recent sales more heavily. Each different affiliate that makes a sale can have up to a +1 in gravity points, if they made the sale that same day. 2 days ago would be around .96, and so on.

Here's my question - I did an affiliate elite search on the product, and it turned up 10 different affiliates linking (aka promoting) the product. 10. Not even close to the 97 gravity. So, is my definition of gravity wrong (I've checked it multiple times, but perhaps someone can shed some light), or is something odd happening here? I'm just curious because I would love to know how to duplicate their success with such few affiliates . Thanks guys!

All the best,
John Casement

    Does an affiliate elite search find affiliates who are cloaking their links?

      It's the new product by the Wealthy Affiliate guys.

      They are heavily promoting how to be an affiliate for it in the WA forums to teach everyone how to promote it.

      I think you'll find A LOT of WA'ers promoting it.

      I believe it does, but even if they don't all show up, ...95% of the affiliates cloaked their links? I find that hard to believe, but maybe it's the norm nowadays . Good thought, I'll look into it!

      All the best,

    It might not just be that one product. If the vendor has a number of other products on the same account (using something lice Easy Click Mate), then the gravity gets pushed up by all the sales.

      Ahhh, that explains it - thanks for the reply. I wasn't aware sales of one product would effect all of your product's gravities - is that really the case? I don't see a whole lot of sense in that, perhaps someone could explain more in depth? Thanks guys!
