Question was asked today about finding products to promote.  There’s more on this subject to be said – starting with there is no formula and I have never seen a formula I could endorse.

But, let’s start with a different premise / angle and test it.

I’ve told you that it’s not only affiliates getting kicked to the curb.  It’s merchants too.

And the common denominator is overhyped sales pages (anything that looks like a direct marketing pitch is getting killed off, it appears).

And where can we virtually guarantee that we’ll find the latest, greatest hype sales approach – and products that are generating a lot of buzz?

Clickbank.

This is good for you for two reasons –

1.  Consensus in the mastermind is that Google is targeting hype.  Anyone promoting a hyped up site will get hit – it’s only a matter of time.

2.  Buzz means product searches.

So let’s take a look at the current top 8 on using CBEngine.

1.  Local Mobile Monopoly

3 advertisers
– One direct links (deadman walking)
– One links to Squidoo … potentially OK
– One is a review / bridge page (deadman walking)

Additionally, no advertiser offers any added value.

2. Commission Crusher

2 advertisers (also found promoting #1)
– One direct links (deadman walking)
– One links to Squidoo … potentially OK

Neither advertiser offers any added value.

3. Google Sniper 2.0

1 advertiser … can’t say Google hates ‘em but I wouldn’t want that page in my account history either.

4. SatelliteDirect

110,000 global searches per month (broad match) and 14,800 per month exact match

Page is full of adverts – none for this product, but instead other satellite solutions (not what the searcher is looking for)

5. Profit Jackpot

2 advertisers (also found promoting #1)
– One direct links (deadman walking)
– One links to Squidoo … potentially OK

Neither advertiser offers any added value.

6. Reverse Phone Detective

Doesn’t apply here.

7. Mobile Mass Money

5 ads, three not relevant

2 advertisers (also found promoting #1)
– One direct links (deadman walking)
– One links to Squidoo … potentially OK

Neither advertiser offers any added value.

8.  The Diet Solution Program

LOTS of advertisers.  Pay attention to this type of thing because it means *something*.

Of the top 9 Adwords listings 8 of them direct link to the merchant (deadmen walking).  One links to another offer.

Side note: I don’t understand the weight loss niche – curious that very home-done looking sites seem to sell really well there.  This has got to be the WORST site I have ever seen that seems to actually sell something.

I encourage YOU to take a look at what I’ve looked at.

I am *not* encouraging you to promote these products.  I think you should stay away from anything in the get-rich-quick or promises something-too-good-to-be-true stuff.  Trouble.

But . . .

Instead look at the opportunity that *is* available.

Look at what people are offering that generates high-level interest.

Look at what these affiliates are doing which is **guaranteed** trouble.  **DO NOT** emulate anything you see.  The only questionably legit approach is the affiliate using Squidoo and that is REALLY iffy IMO.

Knowing these sites won’t fly in Google, do you see the potential opportunity to create a site that does fly in Google?

As I pointed out in our Mastermind today two of the merchants I’ve promoted for a long time – not CB merchants – have had their ads disappear on Google.

This is widespread and if you want products to promote the game hasn’t been this wide-open since 2004.  You just have to get your site right.
