What is CB Engine?
Okay, so I am on the assumption that you know what Clickbank is and how people are making money out of it. If you don't know, that's fine. Because I will cover Clickbank in another article to further clarify how its a versatile tool for many affiliate marketers. So, what is CB Engine?
CB engine is literally an analysis tool which provides with detailed reports, Numeral data and various metrics that are actually not shown in the Clickbank website or even in their analyses dashboard. A lot of people on Clickbank rely on information that is taken from CB engine, its a much smarter and resourceful way of dealing with your hop links.
Now there are two main reasons why Clickbank doesn't disclose this information straightway. One of the reasons is MONEY and other being VENDER SATISFACTION. The first reason is quite obvious, you can just go to there website and see that a paid membership of $27 (might change in the future) is required to sign up. And nearly all the people who go the website have been directed from the Clickbank portal. The second reason is the core of the logic, which is to satisfy the vendors who are promoting their product on the Clickbank site. It is also to minimalize market saturation and promote market diversity, hence why you see new offers every other day.
What are the Pros and Cons?
Pros: I think the pros are pretty obvious to even an amateur affiliate marketer. This tool gives an insight on the high's and the low's of product metrics. Not only that but it also provides the user with all sorts of third party tools for better estimation and analyses.
Cons: There's not much to say here except that the site has a very back dated layout, almost as if their was no try on to improving it aesthetically. Many different analytical tools have appeared on the scene but CB Engine has not put any effort in advancing and developing its tools.
