    I just started a CB + Bing.

    It was a two hours after my I put my second ad on bing.
    The Bing say there where 23 clicks, but my tracking code didn't register even one and I didn't have any hops on CB.
    I don't know what is the problem and what I should do?

    I will post a two screenshots to see what I'm talking about.

    I have problems also with the other bing ads.
    I don't know if maybe the problem is with clickmeter.
    I have done tests I have click on it and it show hop, but I don't know maybe with bing doesn't work.
    What do you thing guys?

    I have the same problem. Even stranger, I've set up goal completion on analytics page to track why my hoplink not receiving hops (when i visit it, it counts). The goal is the url of sellers page. Goal completed in analytics: 35, hop visits ~4. What the fck is going on?

    Less or more the same.
    Ad bing its say xx clicks, but 0 hops. I don't know if is the clickmeter I use or not. When I manually click the clickmeter cloaked link it takes me to the cb page and it counts the one(1) hop.

    I am pretty sure that Bing Ads are fucking us over. I have tracking pixels everywhere. So, a little bit of investigation:
    Bing Ads claims 77 clicks. Audience set to US, Canada and UK. Analytics page shows ~58 visitors, half of that is my own visits and all kind of shitty bots from russia, uganda etc. I could say I can confirm ~30 US, UK and Canada clicks. Fucking assholes.

    I also track with clickmeter. It says I have total of 4 click from bing but 0 hops in CB. Bing analytic says they have provided 35 +/- clicks.
    Also when I click the clickmeter clocked link it shows in the clickmeter analytic and also shows the hop on CB.

    I don't know what is going on, or if I am doing something wrong so I could fix it before I spend my bing $$

    Weird, I do the same thing, however I use a wordpress site as a landing page in between and my hops always count, maybe its your url in bing ads? try changing it like http://www or just www etc

    It's definetly not the url fault, if I preview my ad and click on it, everything works fine, hoplinks are counted. It's the traffic that they are sending.

    Are the clicks bing are sending you desktop or mobile. If they're mobile it might be your redirects or your site is too slow for them.

    I'd recommend you stay away from Bing, at least until they solve their issues. We just got charged around £600 for a one day campaign that got rejected... not only that but they sent us the traffic from the a geo location we didn't want and from a platform we didn't want.
    Not a killing blow, but still, you don't expect this kind of shit from a company that wants to rival Google. We will most likely be getting a refund, but again, shit move from a company with such aims.

    You just confirmed my theory that something is really wrong with the traffic they send you.
