Affiliate strategy

Sorry, but I got no response from this post in the Adword forum:

Hi,

I am new to the warrior forum so please forgive me for breaking any rules.

I am a new affiliate marketer who aspires to make some extra money to pay for the finer things in life.

Here is my issue:

I went into clickbank and found some info products I thought would sell well. I then took the ingenius idea and typed up some good ads on Google Adwords and had some marginal success.

Reading Adwords' rules, I directed visitors to a relatively poorly written landing page I did myself. Way less than 100% clicked through to the destination site where I hoped to have prospects buy and make me commission $.

I see my competitors did what my web guy calls a hop page so the landing page never shows up. He says they are using frames where the domain they registered up in the address bar but it goes right to the destination site; hence, they get a 100% clickthough rate to the destination site since they don't actually have a landing page.

My web guy says this is against the rules.

Does anyone have any feedback of what I should do or advice?

I would really appreciate it...

Thanks,

Mike

    Hi Mike,

    I was checking the AdWords help and it seems that redirects aren't allowed. But as your competitors are doing it - I'd say go for it. Google may shut your campaign down, but I've seen on many occasions that they can't control everything. They shut down one of my campaigns, but my competitors are still running AdWords under the same website category I was banned for.
