what makes a good clickbank nickname? In other words, is it best to use your name or some random sequence of numbers and letters?

Are there any statistics that random numbers and letters lead to greater clicks?

I don't think you should spend too much time picking your clickbank nickname because it's not really all that important in my opinion.

Look at top performing clickbank affiliates and check out their clickbank nicknames. Use that as inspiration when choosing your own nickname... but don't spend too much time on this.

Well, here's two of my many nicknames:

12sc09
quantumnz

Feel free to use them Very Happy

Seriously, you are looking at this the wrong way. You shouldn't, usually, use any affilate name that people can see. In other words you should always cloak your affiliate links.

Here's a few reasons why:

1) Which looks least suspicious? Which would you be more inclined to click on? "www.someaffiliateoffer/?=12sc09" or
"www.allanjamesonline/recommends/whatever"

2) A cloaked links stops people replacing your affiliate id with theirs and stealing your commissions. You can get a good cloaking (and ad tracking)service now for as little as 50 cents a month. Make sure you use one.

[I've put quotation marks around the hypothetical links so that search engine crawlers and people won't try to follow them. Admin]

That's good advice from Allan about cloaking affiliate links.

If you're using WordPress, there's a free plugin called Pretty Link that makes it easy to create cloaked links. It also lets you track the number of clicks, making is easy to see which are the most popular.

You have to be careful when cloaking through some of these sites though. There is scumware and other malware that can still pick up your cloaked affiliate url/id and replace it with someone elses when using the site described above. You really need to use a decimal encrypted cloaking redirect.

Oh, please. this advice avoids a reality.
Most affiliates should concentrate on what's important (over 90% make nothing!) on just making sales - in other words concentrate on productive activities.

Why worry about loosing a few sales when you're making darn all of them and the amount of 'stolen' affiliate links is infinitesimal?
