I recently finished a free course called Clickbank Blogging Video Series. In these videos, the author goes to Clickbank's marketplace, picks out a product he wants to sell and gets the url for that product. He then goes to Namecheap.com and purchases a domain name. While in Namecheap.com, he uses their "URL Forwarding" tool to forward potential future customers from the domain name he bought to the Clickbank products website. Next, the author goes to Blogger.com, opens a free blog, creates a new and different name for the blog, and lets Blogger.com host the site. He writes a brief article and at the bottom of the posting, he creates a link with the domain name he purchased at Namecheap.com. Why did the author do this? Why did he buy a domain name that was not used to find his blog, but is only used to forward a potential customer to his Clickbak product? In Blogger.com, he could have created a link to his Clickbank product without having to pay for it. Does anybody know why he did this?
