UberAffiliate Reveals PPC Secrets

Paul Bourque of UberAffiliate has started a new site and ordered up a review so I can tell you all about it. While it was nice of Paul to order the review, he really didn’t have to do it. The new site is so good, I would have wrote it about whether he sent the review request or not.

Free PPC Secrets

Paul’s new site is call Free PPC Secrets and it is going to piss off A LOT of people in the industry. You see, the affiliate marketing industry is by its very nature a secret society. An affiliate who is making money is never going to tell you what offers or keywords he is running because he doesn’t want competition. It’s because of this that all affiliate marketing blogs are filled with just general information with no real world examples. That is, until now.

With Free PPC Secrets, not only is the UberAffiliate revealing for the first time, all his money making affiliate offers, Paul is also showing what keywords he is using to generate over $200,000 a month affiliate income! It’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen! I told Paul I think he is crazy to show this much information on the site for free. Then again, Paul did hinted that he would be doing such a site in this Tracking202 interview during the Affiliate Summit.

I recommend you head on over to Free PPC Secrets and copy and paste every posts to your desktop because my feeling is Paul will realize what a dumb ass move it was to reveal all his secrets and will remove the site.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some Google AdWords campaigns to buy!

    ShouldΒ΄ve thought about this! -______________-
    Happy April FoolΒ΄s Day, John! & Everybody!!!!!!!!!!! hehehehe

    1. MR. NICE GUY says:

      Great post John. Yes, Paul could be so crazy about this revelation but I think the top most secret is still kept in the gold box. πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜› πŸ˜›

      1. I almost never click on the links too! ahhh!

        :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

        Best joke of the day!

        1. Blogglebox says:

          Thanks for sharing that link. Wow, I already made enough money to buy you Chinese food. We can take pictures of it and post them on your website.

    2. louie says:

      This is an amazing site!!!

      I just signed up and I made over 2k in just hours today!

  2. Now that’s what I’m talking about! Finally some nuts and bolts real world info. I spent a good deal of this year combing the web to try and see how this “making money” thing worked. And after reading thousands of web pages I was able to boil some of that down to 5-8 core elements.

    But what I ALSO learned was that there were a giant number of cloudy, vague, hinting allusions to what is effective. With everybody promising if you buy their secrets to success all will be revealed! And that’s why I respect John so much, he put it out there for free and it’s valid. So Free PPC’s attitude and strategy sound good to me.

  3. I was asked by SmartMoney Magazine last week “if everyone is playing travel all, then doesn’t the talent level come down and make travel ball less attractive”?

    This kind of applies here doesn’t it? If we saturate all the great keywords, are they really still great or have we just priced each other out of the game?

  4. Dom says:

    Taking over people’s browsers isn’t even remotely funny. Time to hit the ‘unsubscribe’ button I think.

    1. Joseph says:

      I agree, that’s bull crap.

    2. whatever says:

      yeah, that was my very first reaction.

    3. Michael says:

      How Lame, Unsubscibed….

    4. Nick says:

      LOL you guys make me laugh even more.

    5. Kinda funny. So many people saying they’ll unsubscribe but his RSS feed reader count goes up 😈

      1. Goat says:

        yea thats sure so damn funny…hahahahah i love it when people say that!

  5. Adam Burton says:

    John, you’ve been made the subject of an April fools joke,

  6. dean says:

    I agree, when using firefox I have multiple tabs open, have to forefully close down firefox just looses me work.
    what the point?

    1. Michael Kwan says:

      “Never gonna give you up….”

      You don’t have to forcefully close Firefox. If you go to the tab with the Rick Astley video, you can click on the button for closing the tab. It’ll pop up a series of dialog windows and just “OK” through them all.

  7. James Pong says:

    I agree with Dom, it’s not hilarious at all. This will only encourage people to unsubscribe your feed.

    1. It’s called a sense of humor… go buy one! πŸ™„

  8. joshuaun says:

    Secret???Oh….I like secret very much!especially,googls’s secret=)

  9. joshuaun says:

    Secret?Oh my………I really like secret……especially,google’s secret=) 😈

  10. Funny for the first popup 😈 but then taking over the browser in plain stupid. 😑

    People may be entering data on one site and may lose it because they think they are in loop and must close it a la “control alt delete”

    Jonn: Just change it for one popup

  11. Buzz my april page πŸ™‚

  12. Allison says:

    That sucked so bad. I lost valuable work in another tab. You are such a damn jerk. I’d say I’d unsubscribe but I did that ages ago because you are so full of yourself. Why am I here then, you ask? Because I’m an idiot, that’s why. Have fun making more enemies today, asshole.

  13. NextInstinct says:

    Grow Up You retard. Do you not realize how you’re perceived?

    Yeah, I know the attitude of the week ” I don’t give a fuck what anyone thinks”

    You have no idea what you just cost yourself.
    Now, go ask mommy to change your diaper.

    Oh, and why am I so pissed? Because you just caused a 12 year old to lose a month’s worth of science report.
    I hope you get crabs again.

    1. You really should be pissed at yourself. All you had to do was click through the lyrics and it closed… πŸ˜† πŸ˜† Besides, why the hell wouldn’t you have saved over the course of a month?

  14. I thought your were dead! I read just today that you were run over by a Panda! –> http://www.notjohnchow.com/john-chow-killed-by-panda/

  15. πŸ˜† Hilarious! Loved it! I see some are upset that you took over their browsers but that was the funniest part. πŸ˜† Your great!

  16. NextInstinct says:

    Wow, you nuked my comment? What a coward.

  17. Paul says:

    Thats not funny. Im pissed!

  18. Joseph says:

    You know that was just stupid, I am so pissed off right now I don’t even want to visit this blog for a while now. First with the shitty video and now this pop up thing. What’s going on with this blog.

  19. Paul says:

    lol you guys are dumb, just let the song playout and it stops jumping around. Sheesh.

    1. We are dumb? Sheesh and I thought who wasted time to make such thing was dumb, okey then I apologize in that case…not.

  20. Hey John, go f*ck yourself. You just caused me to lose my work in one of my other tabs by crashing my browser. Not cool man.

    The Coca Cola April Fools was funny, but this was just crap. Time to unsubscribe as said above.

  21. Have to agree with Chris, this was pretty dumb. Okey my firefox didn’t crashed but I hate seeing the browser dancing over my screen and clicking on 100’s of OK messages. It is pretty much childish from whoever made this site, and it was pretty distasteful joke from your side not letting us know what actually is going to happen.

    1. Lighten up! There’s a reason people call it April Fools! πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

  22. Tyler Ingram says:

    Ugh I was like WTF? ctrl-alt-del close FF down. It is pretty shitty to manipulate people’s browsers especially those who are working on other tabs. At least he didn’t run the hamster dance and then every time you close the window, a new one pops up.

    Or have it pop up the animated gif that says you’re looking at gay porn with cranking your volume up to max….

    It could of been worse πŸ™‚

    1. Tyler Ingram says:

      Though how many people are going to be a bit more reluctant to click links on here now πŸ˜‰

  23. JGirl4You says:

    damn I got RICK ROLLED πŸ™

  24. crash says:

    Disable Javascript so you can close the browser window. If you get stuck in the loop with the little javascript pop ups, press and hold escape a bunch of times.

    Jokes are funny, but not when it holds your browser hostage and potentially causes a memory leak or crash.

  25. Jon says:

    Will he tell us the really secrets of PPC?? I am not sure 😐

  26. Alex Le says:

    Freaking onbeforeunload shit. I have to modify the freaking page using Firebug to be able to exit out the page.

    You really DID piss me off for a moment. This is how a joke turns bad and get extremely annoying.

  27. Chow, HYMC!!

    See if you can unlock that.

  28. coolguy says:

    Yea thats hilarious. Except when your browser crashes and you lose a campaign of 2000 keywords you just hand generated.
    then its not funny any more. But I guess you don’t really have any campaigns john, and almost all your blog posts are the same shit on a different day so I guess you just wouldn’t understand.

    1. PT says:

      …wow, tell him how you really feel! πŸ˜†

  29. John deleted my comment calling him out about how pissed I was that I lost my work because of that. He truly is evil! lol 😈

    1. John Chow says:

      I didn’t delete your comment. For some reason, it was held for moderation. It’s there now.

      1. Yay for free speech! :mrgreen:

  30. will says:

    Yeah, another unsubscribe. The joke is tired.

  31. Joseph says:

    It was just not funny that’s all.

  32. PT says:

    Dang, John. I thought you were better than this. I’d expect this from a teenager (hint,hint), but c’mon bro! I feel bad for people who opened this at work! This was funny like 3 or 4 years ago…

  33. Ruck says:

    I smelled bullshit the moment I saw the title. Glad I seen the comments first.

    1. Goat says:

      hahaha yea me too smelled BEEshit when i saw the title and then i was like check out the comments first! hahahahaha good joke cos many people are so damn pissed…if that happens to me my computer will just crash! Then i go to the cafe or get ready to buy a new better computer! hahahahaha πŸ˜€

    2. Hey congrats, now go learn to speak English properly! Saying “I seen” makes you sound like a barely literate hick.

  34. Gordon says:

    Doesn’t anyone realize that all this “Affiliate Marketing” is just spam.. who in their right mind DOESNT use an ad blocker to block ads? I don’t get it.. affiliate marketing and SEO ruins search engine results….

  35. Well, I’m glad I didn’t click any links there… John… care to respond? ❓

  36. Wow! That is bad… I should say ‘really bad!’

    Fortunately, I tried it in my standalone browser after I read the comments. It is annoying.


  37. Aj says:

    Yeah he does have some pretty good secrets revealed there, but not as good as http://www.makemoniesonline.com where there are actual case studies provided for anyone wanting to start in ppc and IM.

  38. samyeap says:

    Very annoying! 😑
    I didn’t expect this at all…gosh

  39. Eric says:

    so wrong… 😈

  40. That was awesome LOL. Old school h4x pwned everyone, including myself. 😎

    I love how many people are genuinely offended on this thread… I came here LOOKING for the april fools post! πŸ™„ I’m triple subscribing.

  41. eathan says:

    😯 I knew better!

    Nicely done!

  42. Ok, I understand April Fool’s. But that was akin to spyware. Not cool. Flock crashed or I clicked something chasing it and lost my work. Crap. That sucks.
    Another April Fool’s joke that would fit: My car blows up in the parking lot from a pipe bomb. I go out. Yes, it is my real car.

  43. Keith Lock says:

    Annoying, not funny…unsubscribed…peace

  44. Ruthie says:

    You mother effer!! LOL

  45. I also unsuscribed… I lost all my Firefox windows and was stock in this not at all funny prank…

  46. Ruthie says:

    oh yeah, i’m unsubscribing too btw, fortunately didn’t lose anything, but, this was totally wrong. I’m sick of trying to involve myself with all of you conceited money hungry, attention seeking whores!! I’m going back to my little happy mommy blogging world, c ya, I’m out!!!

  47. Deelip K says:

    F**k man.
    I lost something important.
    I’m not gonna unsubscribe but that was not cool man. That was more than just a april fool joke, I’m sure I’m not the only one who lost some works.

  48. Gabriel says:

    I can’t seems to enter the page: http://www.freeppcsecrects.com
    has been shutdown already?

  49. Alex says:

    It’s a fucking joke people, lighten up. You should have known better anyway. πŸ™„

  50. That is crap, here i am thinking… cool some real reading material for lunch and I click the link and I have stop the process on IE because i dont know if this site has been hacked or if this is a April fools think. Either way that sucks. Funny is on thing but this is to far.

  51. I have to admit that was annoying. Working in FF with multiple tabs I had to forcefully close down my browser and lost some of my work. If it wasn’t for that it would be funny, but losing work is not pleasant…

    1. Luckily I didn’t lose any work, but it was a big pain. Ho-hum, I’m over it now though. I just wonder how it will affect John’s advertising clickthroughs. I imagine a few people won’t be buying reviews for awhile because of this stunt.

  52. Tommy says:

    sO FAR, This takes the crown

  53. team ray says:

    i had no greed so i didnt click link πŸ˜›

    so no april fools here

    200000 a month that should have been a dead give away imho

  54. Peter says:

    Any site that attacks me with a bunch of JavaScript messages isn’t worthy of being on my NoScript whitelist.
    /Forbid johnchow.com
    Bye bye, you won’t be seeing me again. Not that I’m losing much, this blog is nothing but ads lately anyway.

  55. Xyz says:

    Either go poke your eyes out, or give me my lost work back! asshole.

  56. bk says:

    Everyone else is just jelous

  57. Bandile says:

    You’ve just lost a reader. What a stupid post.

  58. JGirl4You says:

    you guys are overreacting…

    1. Alex says:

      When it comes to time invested in work, I think everyone has the right to overreact. A joke is a joke until it costs me. Fortunately I didn’t lose anything.

  59. Nick says:

    Note: To all those who are unsubscribing, it will no longer be necessary to let me, John Chow, or half the others know because we don’t care. πŸ˜‰

    P.S. http://nicklarson.com/images/roflcopter.gif

  60. Shawn Knight says:

    For the people that are complaining… if you lost so much previous work, why are you in another tab, surfing a blog? That isn’t work!

    1. Some might wanted to take a small break for one minute.

      And no, I did not lost work. Like I said, one popup would had been okay and funny.

    2. ALN says:

      That’s a good point.

  61. raluca says:

    not funny! I lost $356,443 dolars in a company transaction because your joke! how can I recover now all those money????!!!!??? 😑
    PS: it is just a joke. i don’t lose money πŸ˜€
    anyway is not a good joke, I mean your joke.

  62. Thanks for interrupting my music John. πŸ™„

  63. Internetsalsa says:

    isn’t it like spamming?

  64. Wade says:

    Seems cool, I doubt he reveals his most treasured secrets, but any more insight than the general info we get is great. Looks like I will be beefing up my affiliate programs.

  65. Jacob Bager says:

    Hrmm isn’t it the 1th of April πŸ˜›

    Somebody sieged the moment

  66. Annoying, true….
    But damn great tune…..

  67. Mike says:

    That was the final straw. First that stupid “shitty” viral video, and now this. You’ve lost one loyal reader.

    To borrow a line “we are all now dumber for having come to this site”

  68. ALN says:

    All joking aside, I’ve been reading your e-book and I found it very informative. I been writing for some time now and have just recently decided to start blogging for the purpose of informing people and finding out whats on everybodys mind. I have not had many readers yet, but at the same time I’ve done very little to get my page out there, because I’m not sure if I’m writing according to a traditional blog. If you could check out my page and point me in the right direction, I would appreciate it. Again, thanks for the info, keep doin what your doin.

  69. Teasas Tips says:

    I’m not only unsubscribing, but pissed off and writing a post about it.

    1. David says:

      apparently you get pissed off way to easily… sucks to be you…

  70. james says:

    John are you going to post you March earnings? I bet its going to be lower than last month.

    1. John Chow says:

      Yes, I will be posting my March earnings tomorrow.

  71. Wow. Why the heck did he reveal that much? Hmmm… Thanks for the tips. I can use a few of these.


    1. Hannah says:

      It’s comments like these that go to show just how many people tell you they read the post, and, well, didn’t!

      1. Alex says:

        I guess some people don’t understand when somebody is joking.

    1. Anonymous says:

      John, I just have one question for you. Does it bother you at all what happened to some of the people that didn’t know how to get of out what you call a “Rick Roll”??

      1. John Chow says:

        I am the root of all evil, remember? 😈

  72. Greenman says:

    Bad publicity is still good publicity…right. Still made me mad.

  73. ALN says:

  74. ALN says:

    It’s a drag to lose your work, but it was all in good fun.

  75. Mo says:

    Hehehehe…ok, I hated being stuck in that loop, but I’m an 80’s kinda guy and loved the song.

  76. Terry Tay says:

    I am hoping all the people that posted complaints are going to come back and post an “APRIL FOOL’S” reply because I’m finding it hard to understand how this could cause so much anger from people. There are far worse things in the world that I don’t need to get into here.
    Take a deep breath, breath out and smile πŸ˜€ You’re much better off than most in the world πŸ˜‰

  77. Sha says:

    People are crying over this? Please go sit down somewhere. All one had to do was hold ENTER down. I didn’t lose jack when I did that.

  78. Here’s a review of John’s new iPhone with Rogers…

    http://www.johnchow.com/rogers-iphone.php ..:)

    1. Mo says:

      Damn… fell for it again!



  79. Wish it wasn’t soo loud….and dang, pick a better song rather than some oldie!

    1. I was lucky, I did not get the video only the popup with a small video. I won’t click again.

  80. Patrick says:

    I don’t think this is April Fool’s Joke. This reflects how “honest” John Chow really is and how he treats his readers. Yup, I agreed with most victims – “Unsubscribe” since there isn’t much I learned from this site anymore.

  81. geomark says:

    Excellent way to lose the trust of your readers. How many will never click on another link on your blog?

  82. Dwayne says:

    There are a lot of sensitive people out there today. Do you think John would screw up your computer? If he did he would not be able to make any money off of you lol. Everybody hit that link like a bunch of rats in a cheese line and got busted. That was a good one John

    1. team ray says:

      exactly. greed kills

      i was lucky not be one of them

  83. Simon Lau says:

    good thing I wasn’t working on anything earlier, not funny though

  84. Rob Lawrence says:

    This was a classic April Fool’s joke. I did click on the link and boy did I get a surprise! Thanks for the laugh. You’ve got a great site and great blog, always worth checking.

    Warm Regards,

  85. Paul says:

    That was bullshit! You just lost another subscriber. How do you expect
    anyone to trust you. I for one will never click on another link associated with you again. I’m also going to tell my list to stay clear of you unless of course they don’t mind having there computers messed with. I’ve run across a number of bloggers pulling April fools day jokes. Many where clever, some were lame, yours was just mean spirited and from what I’ve read caused a lot of problems for a lot of people including me. Uberaffiliate? Uberdick is more like it.

  86. Zero and Up says:

    People with firefox – It’s possible to get out of it without having to close down any of your other tabs πŸ™‚ Just wait a bit then hold enter through the popups, and as soon as they are done close out the evil tab and voila.

    One year I did a 100,000 popups page and boy did that have people irritated with me, LOL. I avoid making april fools jokes now πŸ˜†

  87. Eric says:

    Jeez people, talking about unsubscribing over an irritating April fools joke.

  88. Deepak says:

    hahaha, very funny πŸ‘Ώ

  89. Well it’s April 2nd and all’s well that ends well.
    Deep breath
    Fresh start

  90. geomark says:

    A bit of a branding goof there mister Chow. You talk big about branding so often. When assessing branding the researchers like to throw out word pairs and see how far left or right on the scale the brand is, ala:
    trustworthy or sneaky
    professional or prankster
    authoritative or self-absorbed
    useful or damaging
    Today your brand moved a ways to the right.

  91. raz says:

    poor pathetic losers…you got tired of photoshoping checks ?

  92. zeto says:

    [email protected] – unsuscribed, tnxbb

  93. Tasvir Khalili says:

    That was the funniest shit ever… people who clicked unsubscribe get off your prozac

  94. Cheap Host says:

    Well Chow, that is just low. Not funny as your only regurgitating someone elses Idea. I came across this shit about a week ago. As usual you cant make original content and think of something yourself. you are a Virus, not viral.

    If it was a better song, maybe we could put up with it,but damn, all I can see is you just running around in your undies singing into your hairbrush. Dude, get a grip I think its time you got a therapist.

  95. Mongler says:

    Haha, I love all the losers who didn’t figure out how to close the thing without crashing firefox. Also, this is not new by a longshot. http://www.internetisseriousbusiness.com has been around for a while…
    If you’re gonna copypasta, you should cite sources at bottom.

  96. Fuck 1. April says:

    Fuck it, 3. of april isnt the 1. remove the link and the post. My first and last visit to this page.

  97. Wow, I wouldn’t be surprised if your “review me” price declines over time because of this joke. I don’t think I would trust your review links any more.
    But why do you care? I am just one out of 200,000 people that visit your site. That’s a 10 cents loss/ month for you.

  98. fools that don’t find this funny, get a life weirdos…
    keep up with the nice work John, always fun readin your blog.

  99. andrea says:

    this was not funny when I read this after April Fools because I got it in the mail. Very very shameful to have this going even after April 1st without stating it was a joke.

  100. AMAR BHAGAT says:

    Great content, good quality reviews. Over all this site is GOOD,well done.

  101. Michael says:

    Can someone please tell me when I’m supposed to laugh?

    I’m not pissed at all, just not amused. At least if you’re going to go out of your way to pull a prank…make it funny and worthwhile.

    Now may I have the two minutes back that I wasted on your junk?

  102. I missed out on this guy’s secrets but I’m pretty sure it was something along the lines of this stuff:


  103. eshohealth says:

    You need to reveal more of your money-making tricks too!!!

  104. Wade says:

    This topic got a lot of comments. I do find his site very informational, but I think he needs to broaden his topics. He talks about only affiliate programs. I would like to see some PPC and advertising posts as well. Yes, it is “Uber Affiliate”, but he can still talk about other things similar and keep his main focus of the site.
