    Guys,
    I just started a campaign on backpage.com and posted my sponsor ad in 157 different cities and still no updates on traffic or clicks for that particular affiliate link:(. Is commission junction slow at reporting traffic, clicks and sales? I know there has to be people clicking my ad. heres the link to the ad if you have any questions about where im posting and what im promoting. please help! any experience or insight in this will make me feel a little better about my campaign and wether or not i wasted money paying backpage to post for me!

    thanks, check out my campaign details on the making money > craiglist section. it's called road to success with backpage

    or something like that

    CJ has the slowest reporting system in the online world. and I don't see your ad?
    But what I wanted to see is how you are posting the link. Is the link your posting go straight to the merchant if so on your reports page go to the invalid links link and click it. If you see that you have invalid clicks you will not be paid and you are in danger of losing your cj account....

    yea it really sucks because its hard to tell what is effective and whats not because the reporting system is so slow. it works great for some people, but for others its horrible. my links are affiliate links but i use tiny url to shorten them. i dont have any invalid links.. which makes me think that my campaign will do ok, i just havent seen any results due to commission junction's show reporting..

    you didnt see the ad for webhosting services? when i click the link, its like the 4th ad down, and its on the sponsor section on the right..

    weird.

    CJ prohibits direct linking on social networks and classified ads ie craigs list and back page.
    You will be banned shortly :( and not paid. either make a blog or blank em. never post aff links on cl's or back page!!! It only takes them one month even if you have no sales for cj to ban you..... take the ads OFF !!!!!

    I have a blog.. should i switch the links to redirect to my blog? wouldn't that decrease my conversions because of making customers jump through loops? whats an easier way to keep my links in there? is there a way?
