    I know it's not much of a traffic but yesterday it blew up because of a reddit post and still 0$ on PPL? I have two ads on the main page, if you click anything on my site the first time it sends you to them, and all 404 redirects are sent to them... and still 0$.

    Adult offer? i have found some days i will get lots of leads and some days tons of clicks and no leads. Maybe your traffic is not interested in that particular offer?

    Can you give us more details? What are you promoting? If you're talking about PPL without any costs then it's more than suspicious.

    You've mentioned reddit. Reddit traffic is a shit in most ways. Sometimes it can convert, but most of the time it is a shit. Useless people out there.

    Hi vd,

    As you heard from some of the others, Reddit traffic is often pretty poor. That's not to say you can't convert it, you can, but it sometimes requires a more targeted approach. You really need to appeal to the audience at hand, and the subreddit you post in has to be spot on to your content.

    Reddit users are very savvy, they don't necessarily respond to the average ad as a visitor from another site might.

    Reddit users have so many other captions to read and links to click-- their attention is all over the place and it wouldn't be surprising if most of the Reddit users were clicking/leaving right away.

    What countries are your visitors coming from? They may not even be qualifying countries for our PPL offers.
    Regarding your stats, we're confident nothing is wrong, but you can always reach out to your account manager for additional insight and extra peace of mind!

    His visitors are probably 1st tier countries. That isn't the problem. The problem is, as someone has put it once, the ADHD state of mind of the reddit users, and the sense of belonging to the site and the need to protect it.
    PPL won't get you far. If you used PPC you'd earn yourself a summer vacation by now.

    I've only seen PPL and PPS on Crakrevenue, I just switch to a PPC network yesterday and dropped Crakrevenue all together.

    I don't understand why everyone is talking about reddit, my traffic came from reddit only for 1 day. When it reached 2k on Crakrevenue even if I got about 4k visits that day. The next day everything came back to normal and the rest of my traffic is organic from tumblr and search engines. It's not reddit at fault, my traffic from them came only for 24h since I started my website.

    Sorry, my bad, didn't read carefully. But the conclusion is the same. Try cpc, you will get some results for sure. And the combination would be the best - place cpa banner on pages promoting the sites with 1$trial and cpc everywhere else.
