Hello warriors,

I need some help from you! I have a new site(two months old) built for my friend(betting expert) and it's optimized for search engines, getting more and more free traffic from google, but there is no earnings I have expected with a growth of traffic, not even close!!

According to my expirience with the same site(but not on english language) it should start making even more money then the first one since it's on english.. Obviously people respond differentely in a different countries..

I would appreciate a lot if someone could point me to some conversions expert, to critique my new site.. I'm willing to share profit when it starts earning..

Any thoughts appreciated..

Thanks

Avdo

      What keywords is your traffic coming from? It all depends how targeted the traffic is. If it's people looking for what you are offering you should see sales. If it's people that have found the site by chance or accident they might just browse and not buy.

        keywords are targeted, and the traffic is targeted.. I did my job good to optimize site with keywords that should be profitable, and google is sending me traffic for those keywords..
        Visitors are not on my site by accident, they are searching for it..
        That's why I'm looking for conversions expert! I think I should change something on website design

    You're asking for the order too soon. Your order button is above the fold and I don't know who you are or why I should trust you.

    It's like asking a woman to marry them on the first date.

    Perhaps focus on building your list via your blog, put them on a newsletter to build credibility, etc. since this is cold traffic (even though your keywords are targeted) they don't know you at all.

      Kevin, you're right.. that's why I think I should change something on website design, redesign everything.. but I did it this way because I just copied everything from my old site that have a great conversions, but it's not on english..
      Regarding bulding a list, I did something about that too.. I've put an opt-in form on my site, but there is no too many subscribers either

    Insider tip cost $ 100.
    How many money I can earn if I use your type.
    Do you need a reference, which would have given you credibility.
    Price of $ 100 is for real players, not for recreational players.
    I think the vast majority of visitors are not ready to set aside that money for a tip.

      I'm targeting real players, and that's why the price is $100, and it's not much for real players..
      I also have a statistics for all previous insider tips, and I have a 73% passing rate..
      When you do the math, ROI is over 100%..

      Obviously this niche does not works like IM niche.. when IMers see all these data, conversions are just the question of time

      Regarding reference- I have two video testimonials on a sidebar..

    I just checked the keywords on your domain:

    # Keyword Google Rank Bing Rank Yahoo! Rank
    1 2011 hockey predictions 56 14 15
    2 hockey prediction Not in top 1000 9 9
    3 hockey predictions 16 11 11
    4 hockey predictions 2011 56 11 11
    5 ice hockey predictions 219 74 74


    the total combined search globally for the exact match keyword is 1219


    I appreciate that Google is not the only "fruit" , so unless you get traffic from other sources, methink you need more visitors to your page. How many do you get at the momment?


    Then of course there is the whole presell angle...


    Another thing as well...the matches you are predicting are in Austria , Slovakia and Tcheque region, shouldn't you have your site in these languages as well (via plug in) ?

    Hockey is big in Canada...can this system helps with Canadian matches?


    hope it helps...good luck

      I took a quick look, and I saw a disconnect. Probably due to your English or the wording used.

      The site offers an "Insider Tip" for $100. I'll have to take your word that the price itself is not an obstacle for your target market. But you also get a pop-up saying your return is "$13.672 in 34 days". In English, you are saying that in just over a month, you made a little over thirteen dollars from your insider tips.

      I think you meant to say '$13,672', or over thirteen thousand dollars in 34 days.

      I know some languages swap the decimal point and comma around.

      Try that, and see if it helps...
