    So yesterday I implemented Crakrevenue on an adult site that I run, my first time publishing/sending traffic through crakrevenue (experimenting with adult tube niche, not my typical money maker, although I am an authority on the subject, but I digress)...anyway I just logged in to view my stats, and I see my traffic brought over 3k impressions yesterday and 9 clicks, with earnings at $0.00 .......

    Which is particularly odd considering the ads I have in place happen to be CPM/CPC, and according to Google Analytics 95% of my traffic is US-based, 45% Google Organic, 31% Tumblr, 10% FB, 14% No Refer or Not Provided... which are healthy metrics....

    Everything I have heard and seen of Crakrevenue very clearly indicates that they are reputable, not shady, well-respected in the industry, and tend to pay out WELL - which further adds to my confusion....

    Unfortunately, even though the "live chat" on their site actively solicits it's usage, any attempt to reach them results in a message stating that they will get back to me "later in the day" per the bot....

    Just thought I would put this out there to see if perhaps I'm missing something? Granted I don't typically do CPM deals to begin with, (I've been spoiled rotten by adsense and still am) but I would think that having sent over 3k impressions, that would result in 3 units of whatever pay rate they pay for Mille (k) am I right? Or is it likely a glitch, or do they just have certain quirks about them that I'm unfamiliar with, like just not updating the "earnings" column as quickly as the others or something? lol I'm feeling like a noob all of a sudden...

    So even if it says "$X CPM", it's normal to not earn anything at all off of over 3k views? I don't get it - what do you get paid on if not views or clicks?

    But Crakrevenue doesnt have CPM/CPC offers, are you sure your offer is CPM and not CPL/CPS ?

    CrakR is worst network ever!!!

    My first adult network was crakR, made $70 - 80 daily....somethimes was wrong i said...Impossible with that traffic im sending!!!

    Switched networks.... bom $400, 500 , 400 ,600 DAILY!

    this was 2 years ago....But still CrakR either have worst offers ever or take money ....

    I have SEVERAL friends ( who jumped into other things now...but yea ) who have same experience about crakR ..ONLY bad words about them nothing else.

    Erm if it was that simple with traffic, then we would all be multi millionaires.

    You need to find the right traffic for the right offer - that means right geo, device, os, ISP, mobile carrier, city, browser, os version, IP range etc etc.

    Just because an offer has a certain eCPM does not mean that everyone can earn that. You would need the identical traffic source and placement to hit that eCPM.

    That probably tells you the offer is not right for the traffic.

    Have you spoken to CR and asked them which carriers/ISPs/devices/OS/IPs convert well for the offer you're trying to promote?

    I should add - for a new traffic source with a new network, I would always run the smart links first. These are designed to run the best performing offers for your traffic, so you can figure out which offers to run after a little bit.

    Randomly picking an offer is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Take social media (Twitter) for example - would you run a SOI/DOI email submit offer or a $75 PPS offer? It's all about matching the right offers for the right traffic. The only way you're going to know what this is will be from speaking to your AM and/or running a smart link.

    Yes, it would be a huge waste of money.

    I would still look to use the smartlinks from CR (you can get the banners for them also). It will give you an idea of what converts for your traffic.

    I am not being nasty but i am telling you all i done better just to see the results this will upset some ......

    Me and a company not naming let me send , the same traffic from one adult to another guess what, crak gave me 0 money ,guess what the other gave me $500 , i was shocked i protected crak for a long time and always did and still think there good ,but it makes me shiver of what going really on .....

    This was long time back but now i just use git fun just accept it ..

    Was not intrested in a arguement or point this out or go mad i just put it down to owe well ...

    I am into adsense and social and video marketing so adult i do only for fun ....

    Like i say , i dont understand any of it , it funny how it being said as above very strange .......

    I also seen ppl boasting they get x amount daily and there traffic very low but taking $100 a day easly home very odd to me ...

    How did you send the same traffic? You used an identical offer?

    I struggle to believe 99% of what you write on here.

    Edit: You do realise that you actually have to have conversions for CR to pay you right? Just to make sure you understand that element to this also.
