In my efforts to get my new site to the top of its clickbank marketplace category, I came across a competitor of mine that appears to be employing some very "uncoventional" methods of raising his / her gravity.
I'm not going to name names, but here's what's going on:
Upon clicking his google ad, I am redirected to "indexXX.html" (this person is using numbers 1-50 with indenticle landing pages.)
Upon clicking the clickbank order link, I scroll down and the "referring affiliate" is listed as:
For example, if I go to Competitor.com/index3.html and click the order link, the referring affiliate will be listed as:
Obviously, if this "trick" works, it would immediately skyrocket this persons gravity, as he is instantly giving himself over 50 unique affiliate ids (gravity points)
I've heard about signing up for multiple affiliate accounts, but PublisherID.site1-50++, this would be something new.
1. Has anyone seen / heard about this tactic before?
2. Is it legit and does it work?
3. Does this guy really sign up 50+ times under different accounts
just changing the nickname by 1 number each time, with a "." before the
number - or can 1 clickbank account just "add" these extensions and
count as a "unique affiliate".
Thanks in advance for any insights,
