    Ok I use statcounter to watch my traffic. I am an affiliate with a particular adult company. The stats of the affiliate show me that about 50 visitors aday visit their sites from my site.

    Now when I check the visitor's paths from my statcounter, it shows me that well over 100 visitors go to the affiliate site everyday. So what is going on here... even if you calculate it yourself I mean i get 1k uniques aday(not junk traffic) so by calculation I should at least expect 100 visitors aday to the affiliate site. My dating affiliate gets about 100 visitors daily and my main affiliate gets 50 or less...

    Could the affiliate comopany that I'm using have a bad tracking system?
    Pls tell me what the problem could be. I would really appreciate it
    Thanks in advance

    it could be several things. Bad tracking, shaving, geo targeting

    Try installing G anayletics on your site as its more accurate then a stat counter.

    I used to have g analytics on my site too, they showed the same thing, that I was sending more than 100 visitros aday to the affilaite program yet in their stats they show only 50 daily or less, yesterday for example it showed only 25 and i had 1300 uniques to my site, I should at least sent 200 to them....

    What is the geographical distribution of your visitors. It can be that the affiliate accepts only visitors from certain contries. or maybe the aff network is shaving.
