View Full Version : Sites That Don't Convert, But Have Great Content.

I still use them, if I can use there content to get more book-markers and more SEO why not, if the ratios are horrid I don't really care I will get my money one way or another!

Anyone think like this?

I will think twice if i got ratios like 1:5000

great content should build more return traffic over the longhaul..
10 year ago, before we started charging for toplinks, we would sort the galleries by quality and size of the pix...with the best ones being at the very top of the list..

It makes for good bait, but I'll use it sparingly because I'm not wasting clicks on something that proves not to convert well for me when I can use those clicks for something that does perform better for me.

But I always balance between the contents that sell and the contents that get me bookmarkers on the main page though. For the archives, I just dump them in.

When it comes to blogs and having something different to offer yes, I throw a post or two in from sponsors that don't convert great.

Hey use all the pics throw up a few links, no biggie
unless they get mad if you put up any other sponsors on the sites u are using their pics on

that would suck

If the ratios are horrible I tend to cut them out. I used a sponsor with awesome babe content , but their numbers were bad , so I stopped sending traffic. Chances are I was just promoting them incorrectly or sending the wrong type of traffic.

Working in micro niches I find it impossible not to use programs that don't convert. I give sites that convert better placements of course but I seldom find enough content for many of the niches I work in so cutting a sponsor that fills the need is not an option.

I think there's method to what you are saying no matter how depressing it is

Yes I think like that.

With thumb TGPs the best thumbs that surfers click and like you should keep even if they don't convert. So yes i keep those sponsors and their content live.
