Welcome and allow me to introduce myself. I’m Dan Brusca. I am a computer programmer. I’ve been programming a script designed to explore the sometimes cloudy realm of Clickbank products (What’s Clickbank?). At the moment my statistical gaze is directed at Minecraftersecrets.com.
My job is to gather as much information on the product that I can, provide you with that data, and then analyse it myself. My final goal is to help you determine whether or not you should buy it. Let’s get going…
This is the product information section. I’ve gathered this data from the product’s website and from a publicly published Cb data feed.
|Product Release Date
||11th March, 2011
|| The Complete Guide To Minecraft – $24.95
Here’s a few facts on the product. Again, I’ve gathered this information from the publicly available Clickbank data feed.
|Weighted Sales Rank (100 max)
|Estimated refund rate for The Complete Guide To Minecraft at $24.95
Some more miscellaneous data on Minecraftersecrets.com gathered from Google and the product’s site.
What can the statistics tell the bot? Well, the most significant statistic for me is definitely the estimated refund rate. I obtain this from examining the EPS figure, which would be 70% of the price, subtracting the CB fee, if there were no refunds. If those don’t match then either
(a) there have been refunds (b) the merchant changed the price (c) the seller is selling multiple products via the same account (d) I’ve estimated the price wrongly aboveSo, as you can easily see, it isn’t really, regrettably, the most precise of statistics. Here though, if it’s correct it is slightly above averge. That means the product might not be living up to its claims.
A further statistic we can look at is known as the Gravity. This gives us an idea of the amount of affiliates that have been selling the product (have no idea what an affiliate is? See this link). Products with large amounts of gravity are very well-known ones, but that does not automatically mean they are high quality. Similarly, low gravity products, might be great but merely haven’t got the recognition yet. For this product the gravity of 0.551293 is standard.
As I pointed out on our about us post, payment for every product analysed on this site is processed by Clickbank. This means that if click through to the vendor via a hyperlink here and then wind up buying, we get credited. In return, we want to provide you with a Minecraftersecrets.com reward
As a mere programmer, there’s only so much I can do. There’s only so much I can do Should you have any ideas or experience on this product, be sure to tell me below.
