    Advertising networks, typically, have no way of tracking a click, other than a person landing wherever the click is supposed to take them.

    You are probably sending people directly to the landing page, so there are no impressions, and the tracking software is giving you those stats because it really does not know how to handle direct traffic.

    With most affiliate networks, you can usually just say that you are doing email marketing, or some other method that accounts for the direct traffic with no impressions.

    Some networks will never even ask you about this, but some will. Make sure you have a good story (unless the truth is in keeping with the TOS of your program) ready to go, or you might get banned, or pulled off some of your offers.

    I'm not really an expert on this, but you can set up a WH page that promotes the offer, and then send junk traffic to that page to make the stats look more normal.

    Instead of sending people from your email directly to your offer, send them to your site first, and then redirect them to the offer, so they look like they are coming from your site.

    I am sure that if you dig around a bit, you will find even better tips on doing this, but you should be able to make your traffic look like it is all coming from a site, not email.

    Of course, this will work better for some things than others, so, like everything else, proceed carefully.
