    I am wondering if Crak Revenue scrapes BIG TIME or if I am simply doing something wrong. My website shows 200+ uniques a day. Yet, my crak revenue shows ZERO unique clicks. I am not looking for sales necessarily because I know 200 uniques is nothing. But come on, atleast 1 person is gunna click on my affiliate link.

    Is Crak Revenue not counting my traffic?

    I've sent traffic to them occasionally, and I can't say I've ever noticed they do anything of the sort. I've actually seen noticeably better conversion rates on some of the offers. I'm not wild about the payout schedule, but I've never had any problems with them. I actually recommend sometimes because of that.

    Check the link you are using properly guys. For me CR is registering everything fine.

    Yeah like I already know some people
    signed up for free and it says I have zero leads and also zero clicks. Very shady. Also today it actually registered 16 clicks....wow! Even though my landing page had 250 uniquest!!

    You're comparing landing page stats to offer stats. 250 visited your LP and apparently 16 clicked through to the offer. They aren't recording your LP views only the traffic that goes to the offer.

    I wish i could talk positively about crakrevenue i really do but the reason why i came on this site today was to see if anyone else has noticed some suspicious activity. Dont jump on me for this post because I really had and still do have high hopes for crakrevenue but the more I investigate things the more their affiliate program seems like a pipe dream, dont get me wrong ive done pretty well making almost $1200 in the short time ive been with them but maybe ive done a little too well for them. Yesterday i sent almost 300 uniques and not a single convertion well i did get 1 lead worth 0 dollars and cents. Heres the thing that really makes me suspicious I have a certain domain that I use to redirect to one of their ppl offers that pays 2.50 per lead and now my site either redirects to googles search engine where of course it shows crakrevenues main url without the affiliate link, or it doesnt work at all depending on the search engine used. I think crakrevenue has a few tricks up their sleeves. I was hoping this would be backup income for clickbank but looks like clickbank is number 1 in affiliate marketing and will probably stay that way because of greedy and shady internet marketers who try to use affiliates as if we were born yesterday. Ive been making money online for years crakrevenue so if you think you can scam or con me you got another thought coming because although i may have a computer virus or something i really think youre behind it all. So affiliates check your stats everyday!

    It could be a couple of reasons.

    They could either:

    a) Be sending traffic directly to an offer without passing through the links generated by our platform.

    What I mean by this is some affiliates will want to send directly to http://www.ouroffer.com/?r=affiliateid instead of using the link generated by our platform like: http://www.safelinktracker.com/affid-tracker.

    By bypassing the system, some offers will not count hits properly. Thats what causes the leads generated without hits mentioned above.


    OR

    b) They send the unique hit on Monday at 10pm but the guy eventually revisits on Tuesday at 2am and signs up. We count uniques, so the unique is counted on Monday and the lead is on Tuesday.


    There are also a few other reasons why this could be happening, but we usually find them on a case by case basis. The 2 above reasons are the standard scenario.

    Look at it this way, we wouldn't be able to support 80 full time staff members and we wouldn't be winning awards if we we're actively trying to trick affiliates out of a few hundred dollars.

    It's much, much, MUCH more profitable for us to work with you and build long term relationships.

    As for your redirection issue, honestly, I'm not sure what you're talking about. Why would you program your redirect to go to a google search? As far as I know we don't have control over your domain or your redirections.

    One other thing I've noticed, and I don't mean this is a negative as it doesn't bother me, but some of the mobile offers might not track the clicks, but they do track the leads. For instance, I've ran this one offer that might show 0 clicks and 8 free trials, now obv I didn't have 8 signups out of thin air, but the clicks are just registering to the web page is all. It's only like that on some offers and may or may not be a reason for you, but I figured I'd throw it out there just in case. Try another offer or two also. Sometimes how well an offer does isn't even within their control. Advertisers and merchants will have their own scrub lists sometimes and that can have an effect, so trying another offer could help a bunch in that case.

    CrakRevenue doesn't cheat members due to them being as large as they are and the fact they can lose their reputation. I would suggest you check your links or change the type of redirect you are using. My stats have been working fine with them.

    I've been with CR for a little over a month now. I send them about 100 UVs a day. Everything seems legit to me. No issues here.
