Is this low gravity on Clickbank?

Im researching new niches and I found one I like a lot for SEO. However I looked at products for this niche in clickbank and the gravity seemed low
#1 seller in that niche had a gravity of 12%
#2 seller in that niche had a gravity of 7%
the rest were all below 1%

Im new to clickbank. Does that mean anything? Does it mean theres very few affiliates who will promote it?

    Low gravity means "currently" few affiliates are promoting it. It could be very popular in the past. If you think it's a good product, it may worth promoting. Because the competition is relatively lower.

    Hope this helps, good luck!

      The hardest thing with the Clickbank marketplace is telling whether a product has a low gravity because it's a new product and has few sales, or it's an old product that has lived its life and isn't selling.

      There are a few websites that show histories of products. (here's the plug). I've just launched a free one that has all the information you could ever need. Click the link in my sig.

      I don't have the gravity in %. I have a +/- value which is the difference since yesterday.

      There are a couple of other values that you won't find on the clickbank site, such as the price and the refund rate.

      Bottom line is that you need a lot more information than just the gravity. At the end of the day it could have a gravity of just 2 but those two affiliates could be selling 1000 each of the product a month.

      Lots of affiliates will look at it and say Oh, the gravity is only 2 so I will not sell it but if they looked at the sales page or other factors and if they knew that behind the scenes these two affiliates where making a killing then they would think differently.

      However, that said, I am not trying to contradict myself but generally I aim for products with a gravity over 40. This is because it has a history of being sold by affiliates and is more likely to convert well than a product with a gravity of say, 2.

      But if I like a particular niche because my research tells me it is hot and then I find a product that I like even if the gravity is low, then I will still take a stab at it. And if the niche is hot but the product is not, then I would seriously consider creating my own product for the niche - do you see where I am coming from...

    i like cbenegine for stats, CB marketplace is a little limited.

    This being said, i first conduct preliminary keyword research to see how good a niche it is, and then look for products. I actually prefer mid-gravity.
