Placing ClickBank ads on articles

Hey

I'm building an article affiliate site, and have a click bank product. I just want to know if there is a specific place on the page that i should place the advertisement for the product?

And also how many ads per article?

Im sure this is covered somewhere in the videos but i cant find it anywhere.

No set limit - as long as you make it look natural. Put yourself in the shoes of the visitor. Do you feel like the ads are cool or does it feel like a teenage clerk asking you to buy something?

Ok...
As for the look. I think they look natural, when I look at it, I'm probably more interested in the article than the ad, its not overbearing in anyway. I'll be launching the site on Feb 1 so i can show it to you then.

But i was more thinking on where to place the ads. So far i have one on each page, at the top right-hand corner of the article (wrapped) under the title.

I suppose you would need to look at it to give better advice though...

Hey jono,

Like you've said, we really need to take a look at your site to offer any real advice here. Adrian posted the link to the heatmap, but there are other things that will drag your visitors' eyes here and there over the page: Things like images, colours, blocks of text, etc.

At this stage just focus on getting your site up and running. Once you start getting traffic you'll be able to analyze how that traffic is moving through your site... everything up until then is just conjecture! Once you're getting traffic you could try a tool like http://www.crazyegg.com which will tell you where your traffic is clicking. Google Analytics also does a sort-of on-page analysis (which links receive the most clicks) but if you've got two links to the same place on the same page it won't tell you which one is more popular.

Also don't forget about the bottom of your page. Your visitors have just finished reading your article... where are they going to go next? Will they scroll up? Or will they click on this handily positioned and highly recommended affiliate product at the bottom of the page? Hmmmm.....

All the best,
Mark
