    This is normal with CJ. I am guessing you are wajting for your first payment. CJ does that to every new user. You'll do fine. Don't worry.

    Here is my answer:
    I a am full-time online marketer. I made a review website. I put my CJ link on these post and I use banner, too.
    I have some social network accounts: Facebook Fanpage for my website, Twitter account. Sometimes I share my new blog post on these accounts.
    My main traffic is from search engine, I SEO some keywords for my blog and they rank on Google and Bing.
    I found that sometimes my readers share my link on their social networks.
    If you need more any details please send me an email.


    Please help me review my CJ account and Thank you for your time !

    Then they asked me my Fanpage and Twitter, and if there is any way I can get direct traffic. After carefull check all my traffic sources, I found that some one share my post on a forum which used blank referer. That is why I get direct traffic for aff link. I told them all things above.

    But status researching display day after day for a long time.

    I think they have flag your account for unwanted traffic sources. Make sure you have provided them correct information. Otherwise you put your account at risk.
