Frequently Asked Questions
Is this a Blackhat Method?
A: No! Affiliate Site Quick is the advanced way of selling
products as an affiliate. There are many webmasters
promoting affiliate products for years via the usual, old-fashioned
simple redirects and cloaked links all over the net.
Our sophisticated methods confirm to
since we do not use "empty sites" only consisting of
redirects, we also do not cloak since nothing is hidden from
search engines. A great deal of attention has been given to
confirm to TOS of various affiliate programs and at the same
time comply with Google guidelines. Affiliate Site Quick does
not use any "illegal" methods and does not deceive users or
Does the use of Affiliate Site Quick comply with TOS
from eg. ClickBank ?
A: This version of Affiliate Site Quick is
100% in compliance with Clickbank TOS. All hoplinks
open and target a new top-level window. We use the only
"legal" and ClickBank recommended way to handle hoplinks.
Cookies are not being acquired via shady techniques like
frames, iframes, images etc.
Do merchants allow this ?
A:The only gripe a merchant could have is if a
merchant really, really insists that he wants nobody
selling his products as an affiliate on a site which
is a real 1:1 clone of his site.
This is in fact rarely the case since products
listed eg. on ClickBank are listed for one and one
purpose only: So other affiliates can sell their
For the rare occurence that a owner of a vendor's
site may not like you hosting a copy of his site
without a proper copyright disclaimer:
There is an
option in the 3rd party tool mentioned to add a copyright disclaimer -
to make it clear that the original site is
copyrighted by the original merchant.
In case of doubt please ask a particular vendor if he
is ok with you promoting your product using an
advanced clone of his own site. The big majority of
vendors should be fine with it, remember: The
merchant profits so do you! Win-Win Situation!
Q: Can it be used in
direct linking with your own display URL instead of
the merchant's URL?
A: That's the whole point: You will create your
under your own URL!!
A: Clear answer: Yes! Not only does this
work - the tool used in question is one of the most advanced
utiltities for making sure that your affiliate cookies are
placed properly, no matter what browser you use! This method
is far superior to any method using frame redirects and
similiar tools where you could otherwise "lose" cookies (and
therefore commissions!) depending on what browser is used.
Q: Is this against
Google's TOS - Will i get banned ?
A: The opposite is the
content! You use your own URL!
Google will love you - You will also enjoy great
quality score for all PPC traffic and Ads you create
and redirect to those pages!
Do this with a simple cloak or URL redirect and your
quality score will drop to the bottom!! Because
with the oldfashioned way you will only have a
pseudo-fake-site with no content. I heard of people
getting banned from Google since they used affiliate
links and redirects in their PPC campaigns. This
problem doesn't even come into play with Affiliate
This method i describe is the real thing!! You
can make a site in short time and start PPC and
have very low CPC and Great Quality Score - This all
in a few minutes!
Q: Is this bad for Google since i
will have duplicates of sites?
A: If you don't modify the sites you will
certainly have dupes - but it depends what you want to do
with the sites. If you use the sites mainly for driving PPC
traffic to the pages than the fact that this is a dupe is
irrelevant - you wil still enjoy low CPC and great quality
score for AdWords.
The main purpose of this tool is
a superior alternative for people who otherwise would have
only used a redirect and no content at all.
If you really want to work with
the sites and modify them to make them unique you
could in fact do this very, very easily:
You go on the page you created with
Affiliate Site Quick and download the page source right from
your browser with "Save Page Source" to your PC.
You edit this HTML code then to your
liking, modify and rewrite texts, images, whatever you like.
You re-upload the modified html-page to your site and make
this your new page. You can even SEO this site and do
whatever modifications you want this way.
Q: Is this against any copyright
A: The sites in question are
displayed and created "on-the-fly" - there are actually
3rd party files, images or any files of a vendor's page
hosted or stored on your
server neither are they editable or
As i said above, publishers usually
will like the fact that you will promote their product since
everyone will profit from this. You are free to ask a
publisher for permission before you go live with your new
site and tell him that you're an affiliate for his product.
You are also not pretending to be the merchant's site in
question, which would be a total different story. You can
always add a copyright disclaimer making it clear what the
original site is in case this is needed. In case of doubt
contact a vendor and get permission first.
