Why you should never buy a "make money online" clickbank ebook

Let's get this straight

I would like to open this hub by stating that in no way am I trash talking Clickbank. You can find and sell legit products from Clickbank that people can find useful and informative. That is OK. In this hub, I am talking straight to the people that sell "make $30,000+ a month" ebooks on Clickbank. You know them and you have seen them advertised on almost every make money online website out there. People are trying to sell you programs and strategies that they claim will make you rich overnight. The only people getting rich off these programs are the people selling them. They have the motto "there's a sucker born every minute" and they use that to their advantage. I'm going to tell you the secret that they don't want you to know.... And it just might shock you.

Do you sell things from Clickbank?

See results

It's all in the Javascript baby

Have you ever been to the websites that give you pictures like the one above? They tell you that they are earning so much money every day. They claim that they make hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars a year with their turnkey product. They tell you that you can too. And some of you listen to them. Then reality hits...

You pay between $50 to over $300 for some of these products to to find out a couple weeks later that the results is not the same for you. Why is this?

Because most of them really do not make this kind of money. They are scamming you!

I'm going to let you in on a little secret that could possibly blow your mind and you can make these kind of earning too.

There is a little piece of Javascript code that you can put into your browser URL bar that allows you to change anything on the page. Below is this piece of code. Try it out for yourself.

javascript:document.body.contentEditable='true'; document.designMode='on'; void 0

Copy and paste that into your browser URL bar and hit enter. You can click on some text, or bars in Clickbanks case, and type in whatever you want. You can even change every last piece of text on the page to whatever you want it to be. Below is my Clickbank account that I have edited to make it look like I too make hundreds of thousands of dollars a year with this.

Now if you click on the picture you will notice that it looks like I have made a lot of money. Now look above the Daily Sales Snapshot and look at the Weekly Sales Snapshot. They are all 0 with the only money really made being $20.03. That $20.03 was a legit sale. The ones below are fake and made with that Javascript code I posted above. Here it is again.

javascript:document.body.contentEditable='true'; document.designMode='on'; void 0

Now you might be wondering, if you are a close observer, of how the URL still says It's easy to do this to make your potential customers believe it is legit. All you do is log into your Clickbank account and before you put the code into your browser bar, you copy the original URL and paste it in notepad. After you are done editing the page, you put the original URL back into the browser bar and take a screen shot. Easy.

This works with any page, even AdSense

This does not only work with Clickbank. This also works with AdSense, Hubpages, and any other site out there. Below are some AdSense and Hubpages pictures of me screwing with the earnings.

So now you know

Think twice before you buy that ebook promising you wealth and riches beyond your wildest dreams. There could be legit people out there that are selling real ideas and methods. Most of the time, you can get this information in a marketing book or blog on the internet. You shouldn't need to pay huge money for the marketing methods.

Go have fun with that code. Play with some webpages and make some good laughs. Just remember that scammers out there are doing the same thing to try to get you to buy product. Don't fall into their trap. Have a wonderful day!

One last Javascript code for fun

Go somewhere like Google images and put this code in your browser bar and hit enter. Enjoy ;)

javascript:R=0; x1=.1; y1=.05; x2=.25; y2=.24; x3=1.6; y3=.24; x4=300; y4=200; x5=300; y5=200; DI=document.getElementsByTagName("img"); DIL=DI.length; function A(){for(i=0; i-DIL; i++){DIS=DI[ i ].style; DIS.position='absolute'; DIS.left=(Math.sin(R*x1+i*x2+x3)*x4+x5)+"px";*y1+i*y2+y3)*y4+y5)+"px"}R++}setInterval('A()',5); void(0);

      Hello mrpudgy,

      This is an excellent piece of writing. Amazing in every aspect of writing.

      I loved every word--and the lay-out was superb.

      Voted up and all the choices because you deserve it. Great info.

      You have such a gift for writing. Just keep writing and good things are bound to happen to you.

      I cordially invite you to read one or two of my hubs, and be one of my followers.

      That would make my day.

      I am so honored to meet you.

      It's really a hit or miss when it comes to ebooks. I don't feel that it's worth the risk to me, especially when some of these "programs" people are selling are $100+. I've never used Google sniper. You can make money with Clickbank. I have. But it takes work and a website. I would say about 80 - 90 % of the ebooks on clickbank about making money online are a waste of time. The only people making money online with those ebooks is the person selling them. Hope I helped you out.

      Thanks for the informative Hub. But I'm curious now. Can you actually make any money with Clickbank? Also, are you also referring to Google Sniper as well?
