As some of you may have noticed, wickedfire has been down. Here’s a quick post for those wickedfire junkies (humm myself included perhaps if i’m writing this post) who have lost their “home”
You should be able to find some find some good reads on these sites until wickedfire comes back up; it looks to be a database corruption issue they are having.
Site #1 affbuzz.com
Many of you might already know this site. It gives you a compilation of the most popular affiliate related blogs out there and also gives you the most popular post for today/yesterday/week. You could gain some great campaign ideas, landing page optimization tips and just learn what other successful affiliates do and simply pick their brains.
Site #2 abtests.com
Great site for showing how important split testing can be. It gives you real landing page optimization tests companies out there have performed together with a short comment of why they think a given landing page outperformed the other.
Site #3 cpvden.com
This is a forum specifically for PPV. I believe the site used to be paid but the owners have opened it up to the public. I definitely get a few good ideas form it and it also teaches you how to optimize your ppv campaigns. They’ve also got a good PPV “tools” section which can be found here
Site #4 whichtestwon.com
This one is like abtests.com which shares real life landing test split test results done by various companies. There might be some overlap between the two sites but it is still interesting to see how simple changes can result in a significant boost in CTR/ROI. Also, this site will first ask you to “guess” which one of the A/B page performed better instead of showing you the results straight up, which makes it more interesting.
Site #5 (probably the best option)
Take this “opportunity” to actually build out some new campaigns, or scale your existing traffic to different traffic sources (I should probably do this myself)
UPDATE: Site #6 blog.ads.pof.com
lol Per comment, check out POF’s blog for advertising. Ben’s a cool dude and POF is one of the easiest traffic source to work with, check em out !
anyways, to temporary wickedfire alternative success
