    I'm not sure if this is normal or not. But I have been getting clicks on one of my affiliate programs (only about 13 in the last 2 days), and there are currently 0 impressions showing. Is that normal? Or does it all depend on the program? Just kind of new to this so trying to make sure that I'm doing everything right.

    Edit: Atleast one of the clicks were mine, and I even clicked around the next page and got to the point where I need to enter the credit card. I would have thought the clicks would show the same number as impressions. Wouldn't it just mean the amount of people that seen the offer?

    Same thing happened to me before I decided to stop using CJ.

    Thank you seopencil! I think you're correct on that, because I'm pretty sure when it provided me the HTML snippet I just copied the URL from it and started using that.

    Do you know if there are any issues with doing that? Like not using the recommended HTML and making your own links? Like I suppose even if I wanted to I could cause users to get popups on the site (directing them to the CJ program), although I'm assuming they wouldn't like that.

    Direct link is ok but i think popup they not allowed. Discuss your method/placement direct with their support. They are friendly and always happy to help.
