    Hi

    I am running a CPA offer and on the first day it was converting well, then on the second day it decreased significantly, as it did for the next few days. I was getting the same clicks though.

    So i switched to another network with the same offer and again, had a very good first day, however on the next day it decreased again.

    I'm pretty sure shaving is going on.

    Is there any solution to this?

    I've noticed exactly the same thing with Maxbounty. One day an iPod offer will rock, then do somewhat less the next day, and nothing on the third. Each day will have around the same amount of clicks. I monitor this activity a lot and switch campaigns around to keep them fresh. It seems like they're capping me, per offer, within short time frames. I can reintroduce a campaign again after about a week and it does well again until it doesn't.

    What you can do to find out if a network is scrubbing is split test your traffic 50/50 if you know two networks with the exact same offer. That way, if one network is showing that you have $.10 epc and one is showing that you have $.30 epc, you know that the second network is probably shaving.

    Lucky for you, we don't scrub :)

    All the best.
