    Recently started a site using the revenge script and put a ringtone offer with [NAME REMOVED], and iframed it using cake slice. The user simply needs to input his cell phone number, and then enter the pic that is texted to him.

    The result? 566 clicks in just under two days, and pepperjam is showing $0 earned. I'm positive that at least some of these people are completing the offer because I had a friend of mine in another state sign up.

    Any idea what may be going on?

    If the offer is a real time stats one, then you can contact your rep and double check to see if everything is okay. Obviously you can't say that you had someone complete it. If it continues, not much can be done. Try a different network.

    The clicks seem to be real time. I really don't want to contact my AM as he may want to take a look at the site.

    Damn, this sucks, up to 600 already since my first post. I have a feeling that I'm loosing out on a ton of money. This couldn't be a cakslice problem could it? I wouldn't thinks so because the clicks are registering but you never know.

    I think it is the offer...

    People are wary of cell submits these days...

    People are obviously submitting, as the stats are counting clicks not page loads.

    here is the problem:

    people wont want to mix their online porn addiction with real physical world because they may get caught.
    thats why no one is filling your offers.
    they fear that their number will be misused.
    did u get my point?

    Yeah but my point is that they are actually clicking on the offer. with that number of people clicking and the fact that a friend of mine actually completed the offer leaves me wondering.

    No, united states only, and thats where my traffic is from. I Suppose that the earnings tracking could be a bit more delayed than the clicks.

    Obviously I'd rather not reveal my traffic source but yes, it is legitimate US traffic.

    Does the offer track completion if you go directly to the page without it being in an iframe? Might check that...

    If your iframing the offer...it'll always show as a click (everytime you refresh the page - you'll get a click) - i honestly think its jus the offer..switch it up to a email submit or something

    That's a good possibility, never thought of that. Is is possible for cpa companies to track offers being iframed via cakeslice and keep them from being paid?

    They will see a blank referrer - they can't tell where your traffic is coming from - all they know is your getting clicks to the offer (page loads) - but yes they prob do track the second page after the email submit - so its wise to bring in another source to that same offer so it mixes it up a bit

    I don't think it has to do with cakeslice specifically...I think the offer is probably dropping a cookie to track conversion/completion...and if the offer is in an iframe, the browser will treat it as a third-party cookie and delete it.

    I you can, check if it tracks going straight to the offer and see if you get a conversion. If so, it's a problem with iframing/cakeslicing it...otherwise, any number of other issues...
