    Hey guys,

    I am not big at all into Clickbank but this one has left me a bit clueless. I usually get around 150 hops from various sites and sales here and there. One site in particular ranks very well for some of the best keywords in the niche and still only makes sales on and off. Usually in "bunches". I think Clickbank is a joke btw.

    Anyways on the 7th Nov my hop count doubled to 300 (I made a couple of sales that day) and then every day since my hop count has all but disappeared.

    Nov 7th - 300
    Nov 8th - 20
    Nov 9th - 9
    Nov 10th - 5!

    What is going on here. I would love to know if anyone else has had this happen to them, either lately or in the past.

    Note: All my sites are still all ranking in the same positions as before and getting the same traffic.

    Thanks

    Yeah I posted a similar thread in CB sub-forum... they did have a scheduled maintenance yesterday, but I didn't see much improvement

    My bad, I forgot we had a Clickbank sub forum here. If a Mod can move this thread please do.

    Bulldogzg, that is just one reason I can't stand Clickbank. Scheduled maintenance? It's Bulls*. How can a network constantly have so many problems that they need to do so much maintenance work.

    Yup, they do indeed suck.

    That being said I did notice that my sales go through normally despite the missing hop count (hop count usually catches up after a few days), but still, very annoying.
