Are the clickbank review sites profitable?

Hi, I recently bought a course on how to build clickbank review sites.I see that is a buzz for this.

The idea is to get a clickbank product, make the kw research for it and then build a niche blog between that keyword, making a few articles and then a review for the product.

Do you think that this work? Or have you made money with this guys?


Thanks,
Stefan Ion

    I'm sure it works.

    The hard part is finding the niche that isn't competitive then getting the site to rank in Google and that takes awhile. So there is no instant profit.

    If you are going to try it don't pick a popular niche or product. Start small and work your way up.

      I see this advice all the time on WF. :rolleyes:

      Would you rather have a small slice of a BIG pie, or a big slice of a tiny or non-existent pie? I know which one I prefer.

    I dont see anything wrong with running a review site from Clickbank.

    You have already answered the very keys to setting up the engine.

    The next crucial step is: To turn the key

    It always comes back to the number key to success, which is to promote the site to attract traffic.

    THE BIG THREE areas of focus which always seems to be a winner are:

    Any type of product from clickbank that is popular in the areas of

    1. Wealth
    2. Health
    3 Personal Development

    don't forget to syndicate your content. you can also submit free press releases if the product is relatively new. get google alerts to your email for your keywords; go to alert pages and syndicate your content there too and you'll definetely see the success soon.
    all the luck.

    I've made money reviewing 3 different clickbank products through a review page, and yes, it works. You need traffic though

    Review sites definitely work. Be it Clickbank or amazon. My first amazon review site was for a 7$ kitchen product! lol..you can imagine the commission on that . With zero promotion it still generated a sale though.

    I bought a review site on flippa(mainly for the PR the site carried), having 3 clickbank product reviews on the landing page . It brings a sale every once in a while with zero promotion.

    A review site I made in 2006 ,still making me around $200-300 a month. From my expierience I can tell that the review sites are still working.
    The key thing when you writing reviews is warm up the visitor to buy the product .etc. offering bonuses

    This can work for sure. I have done it with no luck. I think I suck at keyword research and went for non profitable and sometimes too competitive keyphrases so I never made anything.It doesn't mean that you can't. I think that if you do a very good keyword reserch then all the rest is possible

    I'm just setting up a review site that promotes clickbank products and ShareASale products and services. I have one domain with the word review in it and create an individual post for each product. I do article marketing for with anchor text back to the page for that product.

    I know I'm missing out on not having the domain name for the product name but i'ts still in the title, its 3-5% kw density, bolded, and checked that the average competition on page 1 us under page rank 2 as an average. I also look at the other seo factors for the competion. Keyword Elite gives you a number which tells you if its easy competion or not. Anyway not sure if its the right way to do it. I only launched the site this week and only the main home page is ranking because the keyword is listed on the menu once but that gives me hope that when the actual pages get crawled properly they should all fall into place.

    My reason for doing this is because I can work on the site becoming more of an authority site rather that keep buying new domains and boost its page rank.

    Any experience of this would be gratefully received

    Yes, they can be profitable if you do the work of creating real reviews that people find valuable. One paragraph reviews, or simply copying the sales page is not going to cut it. The reviews should all be inn the same niche.

    You also need to be promoting solid products that have a good sales page. Without that, you won't make money.

      I was wondering why they would have to be in the same niche? If you were talking about dog training then maybe but I'm promoting products that have a searchable brand name and have a section for health and section for finance etc

    Yeah review sites not just clickbank make good money if done properly with good niche and keyword research.

    As mentioned above I have review sites that are still making money each month

    Yes, CB review sites can make good money. This is one of the first ways I started to make money online.

    It's best to create a site on a specific niche and or CB product. You'll rank easier, and it will be more relevant to what the person is looking for.

    Of course it'll work. The real key here is proper niche research and finding the right keywords, as this is really crucial when trying to attract free organic traffic.

    Also, you have to accept the fact that this is a numbers game, and not every site you put up will do well - although if you persevere and put enough of these sites up, you'll get to earn a pretty nice and consistent income from them. Don't think you can just put up 1 or 2 sites and expect to hit it out of the park, though.

    Thanks guys. I've made a review site , targeting a good keyword with 4,400 EXACT searches per month, and after a few days, I am on page #3 for that keyword, with a little SEO and patience, I hope I'll be on the first page soon.

    You'll need two things, write a good review, and traffic. The problem is a lot of vendors are not willing to provide you with a review copy and if you buy the product most of the time it's just a copy from other product.
    {{ DiscussionBoard.errors[3108822].message }}
  • Yeah they work, but you are going to need some good traffic to see a remarkable profit. If the niche is too competitive it will be much harder for you to make money. I like to create my own review websites so that I can know exactly what niches I'm targeting.

      They work for sure.

      One of the top affiliates for my Muscle Building program makes about a sale per day from a review site that is ranked on page 1 in Google.

      The problem with review sites are that you hit a traffic ceiling if you are just targeting the product name.

      In my opinion a much better idea is to have a niche blog that focuses on topics on your niche and then mix in review posts. You can eventually turn that into a full-time income. Much more likely to be stable money than building 10-20 review sites.

    I think building 10-20 websites can make you good money, they can make you a living

    Health and Money are the two most popular niches but they are pretty competitive. If you keep at it though, you will make money. It used to be that you could target long tail keywords and rank easier, but with the Google Instant Search i'm not sure how easy it is anymore.

    Yeah review sites work. Of course the review has to be written in good quality though-or visitors wont convert.
    But as mentioned before, the real action is the keyword research and getting it to rank.

    I personally think it is working,as long the review is honest and valuable . Also there is so many good products on Clickbank

    I personally often buy the product first then I can make a real review of it. And I don't need to search on the internet for a review and modify it afterwards as I already know the product it will be easy to write a review so others will get a valuable review.

    If the product is bad in my opinion I simply ask for refund and if the product is good I keep it and make a review to promote it in my blogs or I create a website for it .

    As my father always said :you can only sell well if you know your product.

    Absolutely it works. And you've bought a program that shows you how. Why not try it out, & prove it to yourself? I bet you'll be pleasantly surprised.

    The one thing you want to keep in mind is matching people (site visitors) to a product that best fits their desires. You don't want to just plop any 'ol traffic to a review page about any 'ol product.

    You want to seek out a targeted group of people, see what they want, and then do a review of a product that closely matches what they want. <-- Much easier way to see sales come in faster.
