    Hiya.

    I am promoting products of CJ and redirecting my website to merchants website. I can see only clicks not Impressions. even i got sale. so CJ will decline my sale? or do i need click = impression. or click ≤ impression or
    click ≥ impression.

    anyone have good knowledge how i can get impression? and what ration i need at least.

    You need impressions. They wont determine if you
    get paid or not..but you need to get junk traffic for your
    banners or text links..

    I market by email so my hits are way up there, but
    I feed junk traffic to control CTR and keep under the radar.

    You don't need impressions...as long as you're showing them your referers and they know how you're promoting you'll get paid, you would be better contacting them explaining this unless you're doing something really blackhat :p

    Well a 'redirect' as the OP puts it should leave some referers somewhere along the way and if all referers are blank, well he will get banned and will have to beg to be paid. There are so many other networks other than CJ who have good merchants who don't crawl up your ass all day long asking how you're promoting or sending compliance e-mails etc.

    Linkshare, shareasale & connect commerce combined is good enough for me =]

    in the past when I was pretty small - it was hard to get alot of advertisers approving me at CJ

    now my impressions moved up to 400,000 and I have advertisers sending me approvals -- so I think they look at it - but slightly off topic to the thread question.
