Free Clickbank mall scripts seem like a great idea. There is nothing like having 1000’s of pages that you own that can be searched for and found by anyone looking for any particular niche. Beats creating articles to point to the affiliate sites right?
Free Clickbank Mall Scripts
Well the trouble with any clickbank mall is that there is nothing that makes the difference between you mall and the mall that your neighbor put up this afternoon. The pages are all the same and when google looks at the pages it sees exactly the same thing at your page as it does at your neighbors page.
Let’s look at how Google looks at any Clickbank affiliates page. If you want to create a page for any affiliate program, let’s say the Commission Commando program, you put up some kind of content with a Clickbank affiliate link. Google sees the page and decides that it has words that it can rank for and gives it a bit of a black mark for pointing to an affiliate program. Now you rank number 372 in Google for the term “Commission Commando Review” or something like that. To rise higher in Google you are going to have to have other sites point to your page, preferably with the link text of Commission Commando Review…not very likely. This is exactly what would have to happen with every page in your Clickbank mall.
If there is no competition for your Clickbank affiliate term then you do not need any links to rank high in the search engines for your keyword but if you have a clickbank mall each of your pages as I said before are the same so the only way that you can make a difference is lots of pages linking back.
No one has yet found a way to get linkbacks to pages with nearly no content so you will have to find a way around it.
How to Make Clickbank Work for You
The only way to successfully rank for Clickbank affiliate programs is to create keyword rich pages and have the content good enough to have other people (or yourself but that is another place altogether) link to your page.
I have found myself with many of my sites that a review page is the best way. I know that some people, many these days are creating dead on domains with the product name and then building out just one product per site but I like to get into the niche and write review for maybe 5 or so products as separate review posts and then after this I build out more pages of related content and let the site have itself rank for the content. I can then start hitting those review pages and the home page of the site with lots of backlinks, either myself, with Sick Submitter, or even using Fiverr.
This method, although it takes some work is a great way to build a real blog and a real business. Don’t get distracted spinning your wheels trying to find some way to make a Clickbank Mall script work
