    Okay, so sell your own stuff. Just because you're not converting doesn't mean it's their fault. Hell if you think every account you have ever will got with an affiliate is getting ripped off. If it's happening across them all it's likely to be something that just needs a little tweek. Don't give up too soon if you don't have to.

    Verify you are even getting views on your affiliate URL's. If you aren't complain to the affiliate company. I had 0 views when I know people viewed my stuff. I complained, then "mysteriously" I started getting views

    Just because you have traffic doesn't mean the traffic is good.

    I don't know how much traffic you run to your sites...but you could always add a pixel to your banners so that you can track the views thru your hosting provider...if the numbers still look low, then maybe you need to get on the phone with some of your AMs and see what is going on.

    Only other thing I can tell you is that its up/down in IM...some days I do really well, others I can't get a conversion to save my life. Just gotta ride the wave.

    How come you're so sure you are doing everything right? Not all traffic is equal - some simply does not bring clicks.

    Are you getting targeted traffic? Usually that's the problem. For example I went to a website today about Pro Basketball and the site was running ads for a free pair of pantyhose. Now I'm sure some women and maybe a few crossdressing men visit this site but I would almost guarantee 99.9% of this sites visitors have no interest in a free pair of pantyhose. You need to find an ad that works for your site and make it noticeable and something people will want to click on.

    You also need to find out where your traffic is coming from and more importantly where they go when they leave your site. Also what else you do besides use Pingler? You need to drive traffic to your site some other way too unless you are just doing this for fun

    i know what you mean, i have one affiliate offer that i'm running that i'm 100% sure is being scraped since i've been tracking downloads of the offer from my site.

    Sad thing is, it's still the best option i have so i'm stuck living with it right now.

    It could be many things as mentioned above.
    Don't worry, just do not give up.

    Find a method that works for you.

    I tried to make money online from Nov 08 - Jan 09 doing bum marketing and after 8000 views to my articles and 1k clicks to my site I still had 0 sales.

    What I took away from the experience? Keep trying until you find something.

    Eventually I found CPA to be quite easy.

    To get back on track these are a list of things that could be affecting your earnings:
    Traffic - Are you getting any? (lol) is it targetted? Just because you have traffic does not mean you will get clicks

    Could the stats be delayed? It could take 24 hrs to get results.

    Are you sure the offer is still available and has not expired?

    Just a few things to look at :)

    Good Luck

    Well does the ad describe the site accurately? Also is it a site that once you get to it people know hey this guy's just trying to sell me this Shamwow or whatever your selling? Also do you have your ads displayed in the "hotzones"? And not using non-sense ads like 125x125? Also make sure it's geo-targeted as in make sure your traffic isn't all from the UK and your running a US only traffic offer

    Traffic doesn't always equate to revenue. You need to do keyword research and target the correct niche before you can monetize. This is probably the most important step of the whole process.
