I built the sales page yesterday & did some on-page optimizing (mostly internal links for now), the page is very simple & explains exactly what's included with the CB item I'm promoting. There's absolutely no hype on my sales page. I have no article, no review, just a single paragraph of detailed info. on what's included when they purchase the product I'm promoting (think Walmart.com product description).
I made two sales today from that one page, no big deal. I narrowed the keyword down that one buyer used on Google from looking at my Google referral traffic GEO location & comparing that to the state in the US where the Clickbank purchase was made. I'm ranked #8 in Google SERPs for this buyers keyword.
Why do I think I made the sale at position #8 in Google SERPs?
I'm the only one on the first page of Google with the word buy in my SERP title & SERP description, everyone else is just hyping up the SERPs but they never mention the word buy.
What's my point here?
If you have something to sell, say it, don't make the traffic wonder If your selling something & tell them straight up what's included in the product your selling (product details).
So, now I need to get my page bumped up to #1 in Google SERPs, that's going to include additional internal pages targeting the same product & re-arranging some other internal links to put more focus on this product. I won't mess with any external links for now since this site is well established, just use the authority from old pages. If the internal links don't put me at #1 in a week or so I'll consider adding more external links to my already established pages (buffer).
BTW, I do expect a lot more sales in the near future.
