    I am using CPA Redirector with a CJ's affiliate banner link. I also have a free link rotator, rotating each cpa redirector link in a directory that looks like mydomain . com/rotaterlinks

    This way my traffic looks like its coming from different blog posts. The problem is that I have been promoting the offer a few days now and I only have 1 impression and around 50 clicks with a few leads. My CTR is over 5000%. I'm pretty sure CTR is supposed to be around 3% to be in the clear. How is this possible and how can I lower my CTR? What am I doing wrong?

    @WebTrafficFire Dude, he's talking about CPA I guess, this is NO AdSense.

    But yes, it's big. A conversion rate of 5% looks normal & good!

    Use trafficholder.com, great site for junk traffic.

    Yes, I plan to run some junk traffic through it but I am still not completely sure after searching through the forums about where to send the junk to. Do I send it to my mydomain . com/rotating-cpa-r-links or to my landing pages, or directly to the affiliate link?

    It doesn't make sense to me because how do I get 50 clicks and 1 impression? If I do send junk traffic to mydomain . com/rotating-cpa-r-links I figure, I still won't get any impressions because that is what I have been doing all along. I forgot to mention that I do happen to have copy and pasted their banners onto MS Paint and hosted it onto my domain because their banner links weren't working. I don't know why they aren't working but could it be that, that is the reason why I'm not getting any impressions?

    You make it to complicated.

    Best is to remove that impression pixel at all or if it is a banner, upload it yourself.

    If you still want to use that traffic, you have to send it where the pixel&banner is.

    What is so complicated about it?

    Otherwise if you don't have an impression pixel for example, and you want to lower your Lead conversion, you send your traffic to your redirection-blog-post-links, so which means the CPA landing page.

    Home Page:
    This is your problem with the impressions... if you delete their code...
    then when your website loads... it does not pull the image from their site...
    so they cannot measure the impressions.

    The way you did it.... you are loading a dead banner image.... disconnected from their system.... there is no way for them to measure the impressions.

    Could you please tell what Free link rotator you are using. I have my whole cpa campaign set up and all I need is a link rotator to split up my junk traffic over all my offers.

    Is there a plugin for WP that will do this or do I need php script?

    Thanks
    Bosco
