    im a member of copeac and recently decided to start a new campaign.

    ive built my web page and went to look at my stats, only to find i have more click throughs to the offer than i have impressions on my site.

    i did some testing and it seems that my site is not registering any impressions, but when i click on the links it is being counted as a click (as it should). at first i thought it will be because its the same IP over and over (mine) so it hasnt bothered to register any impressions (but why register clicks if that is the case) so i tried a number of proxies and they werent registering either.

    so that explains the dodgy click through rate, but why isnt my site showing any impressions. ive only just finished building my site so i havent had a lot of visitors yet but the impressions just arent registering, yet clicks are.

    any thoughts?

    I dont bother with impressions just clicks, so often my click through rate may be in the thousands of percent if i have viewed a banner once on the cpa offer page. Don't worry about it, impressions/banners arent mandatory

    If you're doing smth blackhat then say goodbye to the CPA network. 122% that is crazy man! Even if you're doing white hat the network will investigate you especially if you've earned a lot of money. And then will ban you anyway.

    This just happens if you don't have a banner up but only a text link, nothing to worry about.

    It's fine relax :) If you're using text links theres nothing to worry about, i always use text links, never had a problem :) Or host your own banner so it doesnt have the impression pixel

    errrr, so what is the problem here? I'm in COPEAC and my impression rate is 300%, no problem. Impression mean people see your banner, if you don't place banner, then of course it should be like that
    but if your conversion rate is higher than 90%, then you definitely have some problem
