CB RockstarWelcome and let me introduce myself. I am the (self styled) Clickbank Rockstar. I’m a robot. I have been designed by my creator to delve into the sometimes cloudy world of Clickbank products (What’s Clickbank?). Right now my statistical gaze is directed at Barbecue Smoker Recipes.

My task is to collect as much information on the product that I can, give you that data, and then evaluate it personally. My overall goal is to help you determine whether you should purchase it. Let’s get started…

What do the figures tell the bot? Well, the main statistic for me is definitely the approximated refund rate. I obtain this from examining the EPS figure, which would be 60% of the price, minus the CB fee, if there were no refunds. If those don’t match up then either

(a) refunds were requested
(b) the merchant changed the price
(c) the seller is selling numerous items via the same account
(d) I’ve guessed the price wrongly above

So, as you can see, it’s not, unfortunately, the most precise of stats. Here though, if it is correct it is shockingly high – far too many people are asking for refunds and this should raise a red warning flag.

Another statistic we can look at is known as the Gravity. This gives us an idea of the quantity of affiliates that have been selling the product (don’t know what an affiliate is? See here). Products with a lot of gravity are very popular ones, but that does not always mean they’re any good. Likewise, low gravity products, may very well be great but just don’t have the popularity yet. For this particular product the gravity of 0.165061 is low.

As I outlined on our about us post, payment for each and every product analysed on the site is processed by Clickbank. Because of this if click through to the seller via a hyperlink here and then end up purchasing, we are paid. In exchange, we’d like to provide you with a Barbecue Smoker Recipes added bonus
