Lesson on Google Adwords

Hi Mark,

In lesson 8 about google adwords you talked about buying a domain name and forwarding it to an affiliate site that we promote. Do you mean redirecting?

Regards

Hi,

I'll take a go at answering your question.

I think you are correct, it would be a redirect page with your affiliate link to the vendor's sales page. That way you won't be competing with the vendor or other affiliates sending people directly to the sales page. Since at least with Adwords, they only allow one domain per results page to be displayed.

Eventually you could develop your own landing page to do a short pre-sell and/or a name squeeze to build your list.

I hope I got this right.

Hi Mark and Rich,

Thanks for the answer. But this morning I read the google terms and conditions. They say that they don't allow redirecting.

Is it still ok to redirect?

Regards,

Google doesn't catch anything and it's better to redirect through a domain name that uses the keywords, than to use a domain like: hop.clickbank.net/etc.

It is definately better to have a landing page, you are far less likely to get your ads taken down, the fastest way (and high converting) is to create a quick review site, like 4 short reviews or something.
