November Option Trades 2006

up I’m baaccckkk!!! My doubled capital is back, thanks to SCSS which gapped down and gave me a 191% return on the trade alone! 6 trades and only 2 lost this time.

I’m kicking myself for selling ASH on the same day at 10% profit, what’s worse was that it wasn’t an exit signal according to the rules. If I had held on, it’d have given me an almost 100% return like TXT did. Check out the charts of ASH and note the candles from 1st till 14th November 2006. Sigh.

Balance after exit trades made in November: $4,913.52 (+41.84%). Click “read more” to see my trades.

Sitemaps

I added my sites to google and yahoo sitemap today, hopefully that’ll increase my traffic. Some people says submitting their sitemaps causes them to have poorer rankings, others say otherwise. I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

Account Suspended… Eh?

Today when I wanted to check my site statistics, my browser showed me this page:

suspended

Eh?

After contacting my host, they told me it’s because I have used more than 5% of their CPU resources. Ouch, I immediately know what caused it. It’s my experimental blog… “Headlines of the Rich” (Read Post).

The site is powered by a script called RSS to blog, it automatically looks for news that relates to the keywords that you key in and posts the relevant article on the blog. The blog started in June and gets an average of 30 visitors a month. From June until now, it made me a total of 6 clicks amounting to $1.03. I did no promotion/link exchange whatsoever so that goes to show you that blogging and pinging alone does not make you lots of money lol. Since the blog adds no value whatsoever, I’m taking it down.

Well, I had fun… bye bye rich people.

PPC Abuse Awareness Video

There has been a recent explosion in abuse of AdWords, Google’s PPC (pay per click) advertising platform. It is apparent that the techniques do not follow Google’s own clear guidelines. Unfortunately, users and legitimate advertisers pay the price, while Google and the unscrupulous advertisers profit.

Google has always put its users first and one would hope that they will continue to abide by their charter.The aim of this video is to urge them to do something about these issues sooner rather than later.

PPC Campaign ended

My funds ($100 + $5 free) on my PPC campaign finally finished and I only ended up with 3 sales (commission $125) which gave me a $25 profit. I think that’s a very good start because I’m not making a loss. I’m going to try another campaign but this time targetting only US and Canada instead of worldwide traffic.

So here are the final results:

My own site:-
Total clicks: 192
Total spent: $11.86
Sales: 0
Loss: -$11.86

Merchant’s site:-
Total clicks: 1,428
Total spent: $93.14
Sales: 3
Profit: $125
Conversion rate: 3/1428 x 100 = 0.2% ūüôĀ
expenses to commission ratio: $1: $1.25

If you are interested in making some money online without the hassle of creating a website, then I recommend my pharmaceutical merchant. They provide affiliates professional site templates that has a good reputation of converting visitors to customers.

Online Business Pharmaceutical Site – PPC First Sale

I’ve forgotten how many days have past since I started that pharmaceutical site. Anyway, I set up an account at GoClick yesterday and had an advertisement up and running for my pharmacy site. I took the opportunity to offer a “weekend special” discount to the visitors who came through the ad and changed my website template to include an announcement about that offer (e.g. “Save $20 on your purchases! Type in coupon code: XXXXX after checkout”).

While setting my site to go in line with the ads, I was pretty skeptical of my site. I wasn’t sure whether it’ll convert my visitors to customers well enough. So on day 2 (about 50 clicks on my site later), I set up another website – this time using my merchant’s default templates and without discounts. I had increased the prices on my own site and the prices are lower (default price) at my merchant’s default templates. My site will have the same price as the merchant’s after the discount.

So here are the results:

My own site:-
Total clicks: 192
Total spent: $11.86
Sales: 0
Loss: -$11.86

Merchant’s site:-
Total clicks: 138
Total spent: $9.09
Sales: 2
Profit: $74.91

The only keyword that converted the sales was “viagra”. I had bids on other keywords such as “buy viagra”, “buy generic viagra”, etc. I thought these specific keywords would convert better because I read somewhere that the specific ones give targetted visitors on google adwords, it probably works differently on a smaller PPC network like GoClick.com.

Unfortunately, I was right to doubt about my own website. After running through my statistics, most of the visitors who came to my site only visited the page I was advertising (It means they entered and left at the same page). Whereas the visitors to my merchant’s site, they didn’t just exit as soon as they visited. They’d at least click around the site e.g. FAQ, policy page, tracking page, etc. I guess it pays to have a good designer lol. I find PPC a great tool to test your website’s appeal factor and it has given me clues of what to improve on my site and since this PPC campaign was a success, I’m going to expand into other keywords for my other products such as cialis, levitra, accutane, lipitor etc.

Affiliate Revenue September 2006

Sorry for the late report, I totally forgot about this section hehe. Going to try Pay-Per-Click around November, I met someone on the RX forums who’s doing PPC on his pharmacy site, he uses the smaller pay per click advertising companies like GoClick or Search7. I never tried those because I don’t think the traffic will be as good as Google Adwords or Yahoo! Search Marketing, but small PPC companies are the only way to advertise pharmacy sites if you don’t have a pharmacy ID (Yahoo and Google requires you to have a pharmacy ID if you bid on drug keywords like “Accutane” or “Cialis”, etc). Time to try something new! ūüôā
