No Ads For a High Grav. Product- Is This A Sign?


I have found a clickbank product with a fair payout and a very high gravity. Although when I search the product name on Google there are only about 2-3 ads?? Is this a sign that it is not a converting product or something?

I wouldn't take that as a definitive sign that it is not converting - it is possible the market isn't as saturated yet. The could be other reasons such as a high CPC or low traffic volumes.

Try the Market Strength tool to find out if a market is worth chasing.

Sometimes merchants don't allow affiliates to bid on their product name using PPC. Sometimes they don't want the competition :)

Also it might depend on where you're located and which version of Google you're using. If you're not in any of the really popular locations (US, Canada, UK, etc) then a lot of affiliates might not be targeting you, and you won't see ads showing up.

Using works fine. Sometimes I think that even if you set your country to be the US in Google itself, it still knows where you're REALLY from ;)

(We get that all the time here in good old NZ. Nobody realises we speak English. Or perhaps they know that we don't have money to throw around!)

If you are not residing in the USA then you will need to use a US proxy to get accurate PPC results. This will give a better indication of the competition. A good free one is:

Just enter in and then your keyword phrase and all the adword ads seen will be from the US marketplace.

Do you have to use a proxy?
Can't you just use Google's own tool : ... reviewTool
i think you can select the country so it searches as if you're searching from that country...(i am not sure)
