I am getting sales from this clickbank product I am really not promoting....So is someone trying to make me money? Maybe a secret admirer hahaha.

Has it ever happened to you? By the way I got 1 sale from an unknown product.

    Perhaps you promoted it at some time in the dim and distant past and forgot about it?

    I know I once did an ebook that was a step by step plan to a successful internet business in 30 days and in it I created some demo articles and a blogger blog about snoring I think. They were linked to a CB product on how to stop snoring, but I haven't even looked at them for years.

    After reading your post I went and checked and guess what? yep, I'm still getting the odd sale every month from those!! passive income or what??

    I have had this happen to me before... not exactly sure where it came from... my guess is someone had as similar clickbank ID as me and made a typo...

    Yeah...thats the one Ryan! They are trying to manipulate gravity. If you look up the product ID, I believe it was a backend offer on some new IM product.

    PS - I still gotta get around to promoting your new product, Ryan....

      You are spot on with this...

      By the way. Let me know if you need anything with promoting my product.

    Mind you with all the problems people have been reporting with ClickBank lately, perhaps it's just a cock-up on their part....

    ryanman,
    Will do!

    Rosie,
    I guess the theory on this is that affiliates will see the product has rapidly rising gravity, start promoting it, and the gravity will never drop back down. Ethical? Probably not. But I guess it works!

      Hi,

      Somewhere in here, about 6 weeks or more ago, there was a thread about this subject with many people experiencing the same.

      I searched for it, but no dice.

        I had it happen with a non-Clickbank product. I never promoted the product but got 2-3 sales. It's just sitting buried on a page in my site. Another time, a product started selling and I wondered how, since I thought I'd removed it from my site. Turns out, I still have that page on the server. It's just not connected to any other parts of my site. So buyers can come from anywhere, even if it's just one article you published 2 years ago - as it must have been in my case.

      Just wondering why would an affiliate try raise gravity?. Wouldn't it be the publisher trying to raise gravity?

        I think it was mentioned that it was the PUBLISHER who was buying using the affiliate
        link--so it is the PUBLISHER who is raising the gravity, not the affiliate.

    Sounds like they are buying their own product. Just think of it as a bonus for promoting the product at some point!
