What is a good converting site?
Well they say a “good” converting site is one that sells 1 in 100 visitors.
Now once you’ve chosen which affiliate program you want to promote using Google Adwords you may be thinking “well I’ll just let it run for 100 clicks and if I don’t make a sale I’ll give it flick”.
But that wouldn’t be a “true” test of whether it is a good converting site or not. You see, it doesn’t just happen at every “100”. You may get to 170 visitors without any sales whatsoever then BAM BAM BAM 3 sales in a row.
My recommendations for testing an affiliate program using Google Adwords would be to find a few keywords that not many people are using (you can do this simply by thinking of some keywords YOU would type in if you were looking or this product), if there is 7 or less ads on sponsored side then that means you can get those keywords for 5 cents and still make first page.
You can also check to see how well those keywords do over on overture simply by going to: http://inventory.overture.com/d/searchinventory/suggestion/ and typing in keywords into there. The numbers that appear aside word is how many times that keyword was searched in overture for a month.
