Google Ads, landing pages, and Clickbank links

6 replies
Hi - I would like to run paid ads (supplement/health niche) on google that link to my landing page under my own domain. My CTA would link to the affiliate sales page (Clickbank).

I'm seeing a lot of conflicting information - some say it's completely fine while others say it'll get you banned. Has anyone here been banned for doing this?

If so, what successful changes did you make?

    I would like to add to the question. Is clickbank the problem? Or is it the affiliate link?

      Google ads has a policy about not creating landing pages for the sole purpose of directing traffic to another page. It seems that under this policy any affiliate marketing landing pages would be banned?

        Most affiliate marketers are not going to disclose their strategies
        that took them years to develop. You need to figure things out
        on your own like everybody else.

        The first thing you should do is ensure you have the CB vendor's
        permission to do your method if it's anything out of the ordinary.

        When dealing with a policy that impacts your setup, you need to
        develop a workaround.

        Put some quality content on the page and it shouldn't be an issue.

        I would also recommend that you develop a website that's at least
        5 pages so that it doesn't seem so spammy.

    So, basically, you would like to make little money for your efforts.

    Think it through. Let's say, 100 people visit your page. Ten click the CTA button, end up on the product sale page. Two buy. You get commission for 2 dales. Awesome.

    The product owner stick the 8 that did not buy in his email marketing funnel. Three buy a few weeks later. You get no commission.

    Let's say this now. One hundred people visit your page. Thirty click your CTA (which is for a freebie, not the product sale page). You get them in your funnel, in other words. Three weeks later, 14 of them go from your emails to the product dales page and 5 buy. You get your commission 5 times.

    In addition, 2 of them buy from the other product you are selling. Because, now that they're in your funnel you can present them any product that makes sense. More than one.

    Yes, it takes effort to set up your own funnel. And time. But on e you set it up once, it works, with no or little effort on your part, for the 2nd batch of 100 visitors, and the one after, and the one after, and so on and on.

    And, guess what? The cost to make 5 or
    6 sales this way, beyond the funnel setup, is around the same as making 2 sales the way you propose.

    There is no issue for promoting Supplements from Well known Affiliate Networks like Clickbank or buyGoods but never ever use any kind of Cloaking/Dynamic DNS ripped pages etc to run your ads.

    Running paid ads on Google that direct traffic to affiliate sales pages, such as those on ClickBank, can be a grey area and may potentially violate Google's advertising policies. Google has strict guidelines regarding the promotion of affiliate products and services, especially those related to health and wellness, and they prioritize user experience and trustworthiness in their ad ecosystem.

    While some advertisers may have successfully run ads linking to affiliate sales pages without encountering issues, others have been banned or had their ads disapproved for violating Google's policies. These policies aim to ensure that ads provide valuable and relevant information to users, maintain transparency about the products or services being promoted, and comply with legal and ethical standards.

    If you're considering running paid ads for affiliate products on Google, it's essential to thoroughly review and understand Google's advertising policies, particularly those related to affiliate marketing, health and wellness, and landing page quality. Additionally, consider the following strategies to reduce the risk of getting banned:

    1. Create High-Quality Landing Pages: Ensure that your landing page provides valuable content, clear information about the product or service being promoted, and a positive user experience. Avoid using misleading or deceptive tactics that may violate Google's policies.

    2. Disclose Affiliate Relationships: Be transparent about your affiliate relationship and clearly disclose any compensation or incentives you receive for promoting products or services. Transparency builds trust with users and helps establish credibility.

    3. Focus on Value and Relevance: Craft ad copy and landing page content that highlights the unique value proposition of the product or service and its relevance to the target audience's needs and interests. Avoid exaggerated claims or misleading statements.

    4. Monitor Performance and Compliance: Regularly monitor the performance of your ads and landing pages, as well as any feedback or notifications from Google. Be proactive in addressing any issues or violations that arise and make necessary adjustments to ensure compliance with policies.

    5. Diversify Your Marketing Channels: Consider diversifying your marketing efforts beyond Google Ads to include other channels such as social media advertising, content marketing, email marketing, and influencer partnerships. This can help reduce reliance on any single platform and mitigate the impact of potential ad account suspensions or bans.

    Ultimately, while running affiliate ads on Google can be lucrative, it's essential to proceed with caution and prioritize compliance with Google's policies to avoid potential penalties or account suspensions. Consulting with experienced marketers or legal professionals familiar with affiliate marketing and Google Ads can provide valuable insights and guidance tailored to your specific situation.
