My website has finally hit #1 spot in Google. I am getting now in average around 500 unique visitors per day.
The niche is mobile application development, and the monetization technique I use is one of Clickbank's affiliate products.
I've checked my Clickbank's reporting analytics, and during that time period, I've got around 1208 hops, and Google Analytics reports me that I've had 5432 visitors.
With that, the CTR of my affiliate links is around 22%. Is that good for affiliate marketing?
However, I've only made 2 sales in that time, making my conversion rate only 0.03%... I guess it's the landing page of the affiliate product that doesn't convert well.
One thing I noticed in Clickbank is that my initial sales count is 6 but I got $0 with them. Does that mean I'll get credited later? If I take those 6 initial sales count into consideration, it'll raise my conversion rate to 0.14%, which is still bad.
What should I do? Should I maybe include Google Adsense? I've checked spyfu.com and the CPC of my #1 keyword is $1. If I continue getting 500 visitors per day, and if my CTR is 5%, I'll be making around $25 per day with this website.
I'm scared though to add Adsense as Google will review my website, and they might demote it considering it's an affiliate website.
What are your thoughts?
- Affiliate product, mobile application development niche
- 500 UV/day
- 5432 visitors, 1208 clickbank hops, 2 sales
- CTR = 22% (good?), Conversion = 0.03% (bad?)
- Keyword CPC = $1. Include Adsense? (Can Adsense CTR be 5%?)
