Clickbank v Plimus

25th April, 2013 - Posted by Kieran Gracie

Hi Kieran, I'm sorry to hear Hubpages are tightening their reigns and won't allow you to link to product reviews and similar pages. Would Hubpages allow you to link to Amazon though? I visited a few Squidoo sites the other day and it appears they allow members to link directly to Amazon from their lenses. Have a good day! Hi Cecille Yes,...

Clickbank v Plimus

23rd April, 2013 - Posted by Kieran Gracie

Hi Kieran, I haven't tried Plimus myself but Mark has looked into it as an alternative to Clickbank. Maybe instead of linking to Clickbank, you can link to related pages on you own site instead? And from there, direct the users/readers to product reviews that contain links to sales pages? Hope that helps. Have a good day! Thanks Cecille I...

Clickbank v Plimus

22nd April, 2013 - Posted by Kieran Gracie

I have several hubpages that link to my website which, in turn, links to Clickbank products. Recently, however, the hubpages management have told me to remove all these links because Clickbank is a no-no as far as they are concerned. This is a big problem for me because many of these links have produced good sales. But I have removed the...

Refund on a Clickbank Product Im thinking of promoting

21st April, 2013 - Posted by Kieran Gracie

when testing a product out to see if its worth promoting I was always able to get a refund without any hassle, or any questions asked, directly through CB. I did decide to mention that I'm an affiliate who is testing it out, because that's more positive than someone who is simply getting something for free. Be careful when requesting refunds...

WordPress core vulnerability detected!

26th September, 2012 - Posted by Kieran Gracie

Jim, I agree with you that it is easy to have a false sense of security about backing up. I took your advice about re-reading the Codex because it has been probably more than a year since my last visit (it is not exactly on my best-seller list!). As a result I decided to do an FTP backup of all my files to my computer. Again, it has been too...

Another good plugin is WordPress Database Backup, which is what I use.

Clickbank Digital products

25th September, 2012 - Posted by Kieran Gracie

I agree with Mary. Go for as many products as you can manage, but not necessarily all at once! The fact that you have already found several potential products to promote within your chosen niche is really good news. Usually the problem is not enough things to promote!

Why You Should Consider Amazon Associates

6th August, 2012

Does anyone know if you can promote your own Kindle ebook on your website and also link to it with an Amazon widget (and therefore get a commission as an Amazon Associate as well as the profit from the sale of your ebook)? I don't seem see anything about this in the Amazon TOS, but somehow I...

6 Ways to Consistently Grow High-Quality Traffic to your Site

13th June, 2011

Very helpful, thanks for your guidance on traffic building. I have been far too reactive about links to my websites ("I wonder where that PR4 link came from?") and not good at finding and keeping good links.

I'm now a proud father!

30th May, 2010

Well done, Michelle and Mark. You have both produced a wonderful baby boy! I hope you all will share a very happy and fulfilling life together.

Thanks Chris. I want to create an RSS feed, so I guess I have to either wait for an updated AB Theme or change from WordPress.
