    I recently got accepted with hydra Network and tested out with an email submit. First I tested with some of my emails and it was working fine. I then opened a little traffic to it and it worked fine also. Recently after a little break I see the number of clicks coming but I am not getting the credit.

    I have tested with some other Hydra Email offers also but the same thing. I see clicks happening but no credit. What could be the issue. I really dont understand whats going on. Any suggestions would be nice.

    Yeah, scrubbing happens. I didn't think Hydra was that bad, though. Try some trial offers/cell phone submits.

    The conversion rate on a couple of my Trial Offers promoted through Hydra have dropped about 40%. My traffic has been consistent but the conversions are way down.

    I'm only noticing this effect with Hydra offers - I'd hate to believe that they're shaving off the top, or up to no good since they've been great in the past. Anyone else noticing this with Hydra? Might just be the market I'm in.

    Move on, change the offer to similar one but from other advertiser, it's normal if you do email submit a lot, you should use tunnel your traffic so you can change the offer easily. For email submit, if you don't see at least 1 convert from 50 targeted traffic, it mean they stealing your money.

    Is it a second page offer submit? Those convert a lot less. I've been pretty happy with Hydra. They have been one of my favorite companies to deal with in the past.

    hydra is shaving email submit offers like hell. I don't know why. I was paying people to manually complete my email submits and I would get like 1 out of 30 that counted. I don't know what happened to Hydra in the past week.. but amazon is bitching at me cause ur not allowed to ask ppl to submit emails there so O well... back to making $0 a month again!!!!! can't find a damn way to make money!

    Scrubbing, shaving, take your pick. It's most likely not your fault.

    I noticed that too with the network I am on...The offers work great for about a week or so then it goes from about 30% conversion to about 5%..Its not me I keep sending them the traffic. Makes you afraid to ramp it up and do a ppc campaign if you get shaved that bad.

    that happens with email and zip submits over time, the scrub gets worse...I've noticed the same thing with lead-based offers at cpa networks, though less intense.

    You might want to stick with things that require a credit card like the "free" trial acai/grant/etc.

    I've never used Hydra, although all CPA networks shave your traffic, they mainly target email/zip submits from what I know, my advice would be to split up your traffic, if your gaining quite a lot of it, into different networks that have the same offer, so each hit goes to a different network, so you still get paid and there is less chance of a lot of your leads being shaved

    Hydra was AMAZING untill about a week ago.

    I was getting 1/1 Conversion on a TON of email submits.

    Now, I'm lucky if I get 40%.

    Seems like they gone down the shitter.

    Having a 100% conversion rate looks like your using black hat methods, even if your not, the network will be like "Hmm, they are getting a lot of good traffic, I wonder what their doing" and look into it, 40% is still fine, but I suppose it depends how the scale, if you've got 10/10 conversions, that's fine, but if your like 500/500 conversions, I'd be careful with what methods you using to avoid being banned.
