    Wow, with that many clicks you should have at least one conversion, then again it depends what your selling/offering and the people your offering/selling to.

    What offer is it??

    They are not real prospects you are targeting. You're just targeting random people for a specific thing, of course that's not going to work well.

    I was averaging $40-$50 daily with a cj merchant, but past few days $0 in sales. Same thing happened last month at least for my merchant, tracking was down for a week.

    laser target your campaigns - dont go loose - go tight - go long tail keyword, low volume = targeted - think buyer phrases - like"cheapest blue widget" - not just blue widgets etc

    search engine traffic is the best. that's why i don't bother to promote my properties using social network to much. you need to understand the buyer intention. just ask urself. if u using myspace/facebook and one advertisement catch ur eyes, what's the probability that u will buy that?
    in another situation, u want to buy something but u want to get more information about that product. where do u go? google right.

    i'm not a fan of social traffic at the past neither now. search engine traffic is what you need. i still making money from my articles which rank in page ones.

    Idk something is up. I'm am usually getting like 300-400 clicks a day and I make 15-20 sales a day. for the past two days I see 250-300 clicks for the day and made one sale yesterday, 3 today.

    Now I know the traffic I have been driving hasnt changed, I feel like they are shaving all of a sudden... I go from $400 or so a day to $20-60 for the past two days? All that I look, nothing has changed on my end...

    I have had campaigns that would not start converting for weeks, and then would continue to convert long after I stopped sending traffic their way due to free trials running out and the sort.

    That happened to me a while back but not on nearly such a large scale.

    I emailed one of the merchants who admitted their tracking had been off for a few days.
    She said it was their fault and not CJs... :confused:

    Damned annoying.
