Okay, so I've built a wordpress blog with separate articles on each page. My site contains ~8 pages. I've been mainly profile backlinking and using social addr and now I'm first in 1st page of google ranking with my page (not domain, linking structure is like this /%postname%/) for 3k+ searches for keyword and 3rd pos in first page for another 2k+ keyword (which, amazingly, I haven't built any exact anchor texts at all) and the page contains rules on how to blah blah blah (useful info). Now I get average on 40 visits a day. My keyword is something like "lose stupidity FAST" (I want to bold the word fast because it is said that people will more likely buy the product if they type in fast). I am tracking hits with pretty link, have banner and two links in article pointing to a clickbank product "truth about abs" (which is thought to be bestseller), and I have one supplement product from amazon, also, one little banner pointing to CPA trial offer of credit card submit.
Now I have one question. Why I am getting about 20 hits on affiliate links on pretty link everyday, yet, I get only ~5 hops? Also, google analytics now show that I have 600 visits to the site (my IP excluded in filter) (which supposed to average out on 1200 after three weeks or so).
Why in the love of god I am not getting any sales if people click on ads? It supposed to be like 1% conversion rate, right? About 300 people clicked on links, I should have gotten about 3 sales now, yet it is still ice-cold zero and I have never had a sale from SEO so far! My site offers petty nice content (no phylosophy fluff) in the ranking page. I feel really frustrated because I worked my ba*** off to be in first place and I'm still having no cash in my pocket (which I would use to speed up SEO using software and services as up to this point I still don't have nearly any budget at all). Anyone had the same situation? How did you increase conversion rates?
