[UPDATE AUGUST 4, 2017]
The site is https://www.videodownloadertoolbar.site/
The affiliate offer is a Free videodownloader toolbar download for $2.25 from GlobalWide Media.
I am a simplesitesbonus 2016 owner. Klombies.
I bought some traffic the other day - 48 clicks on Adwords - $0.14 CPC - for keywords such as..
youtube video downloader
download youtube video
download a youtube video
free youtube downloader
youtube downloader free download
download videos youtube
(The list goes on...)
No conversions so far. After testing, I made some substantial changes to the top page (such as the image ads selection)
Am I heading in the right direction???
[UPDATE AUGUST 17, 2017]
okay, so I have bought search traffic from Bing and Google. After refining my keywords, I got about 0.15-20 cents CAN per click..which is..okay. My affiliate offer lowered its budget to only 1.05US per US download (even though on offervault it says $2.25).
My CTR on my affiliate links was quite fantastic after I added the illusion of choice with the "choose which website to download from" ad. It raised the CTR from 0.01% to 35-40% CTR. The conversion rate was realllly bad though. The only conversions made were from places like India, Nigeria, Philippeans etc. and they paid 0.04-0.08$ per download. No US traffic converted when the ads ran.
I made about a dollar in conversions, and lost significantly more paying for traffic.
The CTR decreased slightly after I uploaded the screencap video of me downloading and using the tab extension to about 32%.
I have gone through all the variables - the affiliate link works, the search ad specifies getting a video downloader toolbar, I am definitely only paying for US traffic - something is going wrong with the presentation of my landing page
so... I made it this far in the simple sites course. What do you think marcus?
