Here’s what I do:
I go to Clickbank’s Marketplace and search for a niche. I selected 50 items per page so that I can see many items and sort by popularity to display the popular products first on the list then I will list down all products that will display.
When the products displays, find if there are affiliate links indicated in the description, view the sales page to check if the product is good or not and write down the hop link (affiliate link). You also need not to rely on the gravity or popularity because you don’t know how many affiliates are promoting the product that is why the popularity is high and sometimes when the gravity is very low, you don’t know if the product is just new. So, you need to list it down and check it later. Maybe the product was really good but no affiliate is promoting it.
Better check the sales page and the order process if your affiliate ID is reflected in the order form of Clickbank.
