    I usually do, and have for the past 2 years, average about $200 or so a day on CB, for the past 5 days I have made zip.. same traffic, nothing has changed on my end. Seems shit just fell off the planet. Anyone else seeing this on CB?

    Did you check your aff links?
    Maybe someone hacked in to your site and got his aff links in stead of yours?

    Is your traffic source and quality stay the same?
    Check if the products you are promoting are still available in the market place. In the last few weeks many vendors moved to other networks.

    Ya my traffic source and quality are still the same. I went into the Market and researched for my product I am promoting and found it and redid the CB affiliate link, so I am assuming they are still with CB.

    I haven't seen any problems recently at all. In fact, I've had arguably the best stretch I've ever had on Clickbank.

    Strange.. don't know why everything would just drop to $0. My logs show the same sources and traffic that I have been sending.

    katara, actually, there is a very easy way to know whether or not your links have been hijacked. Check your hops.

    If you're still getting hops from that site and those links, then your cookie is still being placed correctly.

    I'm assuming, Matt, that you have clicked through your link and gone to the payment page to see your affiliate ID at the bottom?

    Yes, I followed my php tracking page that redirects to the CB product. The php page is something like: product.php it tracks clicks and redirects to my CB affiliate link, then I went to the order page and at the bottom it says [affiliate = xxxxxx] with my id in it.

    If you're in the U.S. look at the current economy. People are struggling to make ends meet and many have no money to purchase information when Google is Free. Some products lose their luster after a while. For a person to actually pull their credit card out and buy something, s/he will want to make sure it's worth the investment and not be maxed out on the credit line. Also, because CB has had so many snake oil vendors with wild promises, lots of people get hesitant and fear getting scammed. Another possibility is simply supply and demand. Check the stats of the products you're selling. Contact the vendors and ask them if they have experienced a drop in sales.

    That would explain a slow decrease in sales but to go from $200 a day to $0? I think there is more to it than your explanation.

    Also if you read above some members are claiming some of their best sales yet.

    I see this happening to me once in a while. In April i had 5 days of $0 then suddenly day 6 was $340! I average a bit less than you but some times i can go 2 or 3 days with zero sales then suddenly it jumps back up well above average. Give it a few more days and i am sure your sales will come back. Its just the way of the internet, too many variables of products, rankings and people and sometimes you can go through a few days of zero sales.

    Yeah, it could be the niche, though. My niche inherently goes up when the market is bad. :D

    Still the drastic drop would indicate that there is a problem elsewhere. You're still getting the same traffic to the site, I assume. Did you say whether or not you were getting the same hops?
