Is CleanFiles shaving/BSing or am I missing something?

    I have a 301 redirect link pointing to a cleanfiles download link. My 301 redirect link tracker says the link has 160 clicks, however the clean files stats for the link says only 16 impressions?

    If 160 people clicked my link and went to the clean files download page, why is it only saying 16 impressions?

    Also I am getting comments on my videos of people saying they tried multiple surveys and couldn't get the download, yet I haven't made any money from the links they are talking about? Shouldn't I be making money if these people are doing surveys? Granted they could be lying, but multiple people?

    Just seems a little fishy to me. Would love some insight into this. I know a lot of people use this network, and I am not trying to bad mouth it, I am just a little confused on why this is occurring.

    If all the clicks are converted you should be in top leader list. Even I get good conversion in Adnooka, comparatively very low conversion in cleanfiles .To my landing page 400+ unique visitors and my click impression are only 40 and downloads are only 4 to 6 and some days no downloads. I split tested with other networks also and cleanfiles is good than other network. so I am sticking to it.

    Maybe they have few problems on their algorithms and they are working to fix them

    I'm having issues as well... I switched from AWM ... (again) ... and just wanted to try my luck at Cleanfiles

    When I had my links for AWM, multiple people were complaining that surveys did not work and my EPC dropped big time from what it used to be

    Now since I switched my links on cleanfiles, same thing, people complaining that the surveys dont work..

    I'm getting 500+ Impressions...250+ clicks daily and a 0.08EPC... I'm used to having a 0.20 EPC

    things are starting to get ridiculous..

    I could be wrong, but... Cleanfiles gets their offers from AWM. If there is a problem/shaving, it's propably on AWM's end.

    For me things are looking great @ CF. $0.45 EPC today :)

    I guess it never occurred to people that a company that is being cheated and gamed by thousands of hungry blackhat marketers is going to shave worthless clicks to prevent themselves from losing money. The only reason why some of the traffic might not be converting for you is prolly because the people sent to your "offer wall" are gaming the system by filling out shit information. So my final assumption would be to setup a cheap 301 redirect with cpm ads on it and direct them to your PPD site so not only do you get double earnings but you won't complain about the crappy conversions either.

    My earnings have almost tripled since I joined another PPD network when cleanfiles banned me for no reason. So yeah... they might be shaving a bit.
