    Hi,

    Few days ago I made a nice campaign on TrafficVance with about 700 keywords. I am receiving impressions but no clicks, as trafficvance says. However, the affiliate stats counts each impression as a click. What the hell?

    It's pretty weird. For 3 campaigns, I generated a total of 375 impressions and no clicks. Is the CTR THAT LOW?

    Here's a screenshot:

    Thanks,

    Have you tried using URLs instead of keywords?

    You need to double check your affiliate link. TV opens whatever page you tell them to open, which is why each impression counts as a click. If you aren't seeing clicks in your affiliate network stats, its very likely that your affiliate ID isn't being passed in to the network. So click the little "test link" button with http headers turned on and make sure it's actually opening the page you want.

    Then double check your stats to make sure you're getting "credit" for each click.

    Also, are you using some kind of tracking software like tracking 202? If so, double check that your redirects are all working properly.

    Hit me up on AIM next time you're on and I'll try to help you out.

    that is because itll only show a click if you are using TRAFFICVANCES PIXEL

    if you something like prosper202 then it wont show clicks obviously.

    i would recommend against using the trafficvance pixel as well.

    Hey LOLZAP,

    I think it may be the targeting of keywords. I would try would r00t said about trying to target url's and see how that converts.

    Also are you doing CPM, PPC or CPV with them???
