My site:

I’ve been living off ClickBank and PayDotCom both as an affiliate and recently as a publisher, very well. I just found out about this local Affiliate Forum and am stoked to find out that the local guys are into it – good stuff!


As Above

I have been working on my travel site for a few months primarily for pleasure. Now I have a standard adsense skyscraper on each page plus a few other paying click links elsewhere.

I aim to place some more NZ based ads, and would welcome any advice as to where I might look

Many thanks :roll:

I see you are running this off a UK domain so why don't you sign up with some of the travel related affiliates on the likes of Affiliate Windows, Tradedoubler and

One point I might mention after looking at your site. If search engine traffic is at all important to you, you want to do something about the index page on that domain. The way you have it set up you might be having a huge problem getting your page spidered by the search engines....not that it's any of my business.

My Site :

Just started in this AM game (translation - noob), my site is about a year old now and I have spent most of this time adding content and updating the news articles, RSS feeds plus the myspace and blogger blogs. We have an upward trend in page loads and unique visitors that I really should be leveraging if the site is to return enough to support itself.

The site needs much more development time, more content and a better promotion effort but, I have a family and a full time job so some clever ‘out of the box’ thinking is in order me thinks.

I can see LOTS of potential for the series generates huge lumps of information regularly that can be used for marketing (intelligently of course). I currently have a couple of affiliate programs with NZ Electronics and Zillion plus Google Adsense and Adsense Images, but despite this revenue to date is barely into double digits, (Google CTR is 0.38%).

My goal is to make the site return enough to support itself at least, any feedback about my site and my amateurish attempts at affiliate marketing are greatly appreciated.

My site sells CDs to aid in study and learning. I would greatly appreciate it if you could add a link to your website

Hey athlete12345, just wanted to let you know that there's quite a few errors on your home page. Looks like you're linking to images on your own computer instead of linking to images on the server.

Hey athlete, I'm not sure what program you have used to build your page but the image src files all link to the images on your hard drive, it is not using the ones that you have uploaded to your server. As far as I have looked this is only on your home page. This is why you can see them but no-one else can.

You need to go into your code and change the path to link to the actual file. You will need to take the first part of the path completely off so that it only reads {img SRC="images/imagename.jpg"} - with <>'s instead of {}.

If I were you I would keep my images in a separate folder as it will soon become very messy on the first level and hard to find anything. This will mean telling each page that it needs to link to the images in the new folder. A bit of work, but worth it I think.

Hope this helps.

noskire which has generated some good revenue with little marketing.
Advertising Gambling in New Zealand is illegal as far as I know.. You right want to check the legalities of this...

My website is

Its been running for quote a few years and I've tried nearly all of NZ's affiliate schemes and I've not found many which pay out much $$ at all.

Google Adsence and Going to a Proper Advertising Agency works well (tpn,ib etc) will help. But you need alot of people to go to your website in the 1st place, so you need something for them to go for (a "affiliate website only does not usually do this).

Yes. the website is ugly and needs an update for a long time.. but the website works at the moment and was ranked Alexa wise within the Top 100 New Zealand websites at the end of last year.

My website is a complete resource for TradeMe sellers.

It is my baby and I work on it all the time. I quite often wonder though whether or not I should just chuck it all in and work on something with a larger market ie: The world. I have tried, but then I just keep coming back to it and feel so comfortable and at home working on it that nothing else ever seems to get finished.

Anyone have similar woes?

I have created a NZ sporting website ( ) aimed at all of NZ's sport crazy people. I have just started getting into the AM side of things and came across this site. Good to see other kiwis seem to be having the same kind of problems also :)
Do most Affiliate programs seem to offer 10% commission on sales? If anyone knows of any good sporting affiliate programs im all ears!!!
Regards everyone

Its missing a " We Won The World Cup " headline...but I suppose we have wait for that. :lol:

And a KiwiTopsite Button :wink:

As for AM there isn't much in good 'ol NZ that I'm aware of. Bit slow at the uptake in this country I'm afraid. You could send out email requests. I did that once and got no replies.
