    Hey guys. I have a question. I'm new to the CPA world. And I got approved by maxbounty, so now I'm doing 1 page signup ads, that gives me 3.25 per lead, under the report, it's saying 29 clicks and $0.00 in earnings. And this all happened last night. I know within those clicks at least one person signed up. But why is it showing up as 0.00 earnings?

    How do you know at least one person signed up? Because the fact that you know, to me seems a bit suspect. (Depending on how you know of course.)

    what he said. plus...

    reporting isn't always instant (ask your AM) on conversions.
    some of the 'lead' offers have to verify their email to convert (the higher paying email submits are like this I believe)
    some leads are scrubbed (dupes, invalid data, etc.)

    Well, None of my traffic is fake , and its only a one page sign up. im using the offer in emails, and 30 isnt a far out number. if i said, i got 1000 clicks, and i know 700 of them signed up, thats more suspect.

    It's your campaign.

    Most offers do not scrub/shave you right away. They usually wait a few days to evaluate your traffic, and they will scrub accordingly.

    I advise you use a proxy to fill out your own offer and see if it went through. This is what I did and the lead was validated. A few days later after sending roughly 100+ leads to the offer, I suspected shaving, lo and behold I used a different proxy to fill out my own offer and the lead was not documented.

    it worries me you know whats happening so closely

    ie your filling in your own offers.

    but if your WH
    what you need to be careful with is the older the offers the less you get credit for - as people may have already completed the offer elsewhere before coming to you.

    I always tried to pick the newer offers so that people had unlikely done them before.

    Didnt help me though I had a bunch of video sites and still got banned from MB for Fraud .. lol .. yeah right - spend my whole day loading videos for my 150 sites and I'm going to cause a problem over $2 lol.

    anyway it is what it is.

    Just because your traffic isn't fake, doesn't explain how you know at least one person signed up, which is my main issue.

    I have never provided anything other than legit traffic and i only know my sign-up rates after testing and even then i would never be able to send 30 leads and "know at least one person signed up".

    hmm, so far your getting alot of weird "advice"

    i always test my cpa offer before i throw any traffic at it, i've never been with a affiliate network(i'm with 30 atm) that had a issue with me testing the offer before i ran it.

    I see it like this, some offers simply don't count correctly, and if the network i'm with doesn't allow me to test the offer before i run it then simply that network isn't worth the time.

    you'll be shocked at how many 'affiliate networks' i've joined and the traffic doesn't count, leads wont count etc

    this is based on reading the offer, double check with your AM if stats are delayed, if leads are delayed ... traffic is money don't be a fool with your traffic.

    don't send traffic unless the test lead counts, newbies might say otherwise.



    *note* the guy above me, i'm kinda surprised that you don't test your cpa offers , honestly.

    i really didn't think people sent globs of traffic over til they double checked the offer.... maybe thats why some networks don't count the test lead since affiliates don't care if its correctly tracking the leads. i probably should run a affiliate network

    I just checked the MB. FAQ Section and it said :


    Why is it I'm not seeing any leads/sale generated on a campaign when I know leads/sales must have been generated?

    There are a number of reasons why this could happen. These include, but are not limited to surfers visiting a campaign page through another publisher link, surfers entering invalid data, surfers not fully completing the signup, surfer data not matching campaign demographic requirements, and surfers having cookies disabled on their computer. Generally speaking, most cases of untracked test or friend-generated leads are explained by a publisher simply unfamiliar with all the details an advertiser requires to validate a lead as real.


    and another was

    Are leads/sales tracked in real time or delayed?

    In most cases, leads and sales are tracked in real time, but there can be up to a 5 minute delay for our server to refresh publisher statistics. There are some advertising campaigns where a sale/lead is only declared days after the surfer signed up. In such circumstances, this will be disclosed in the ad campaign description.

    Maybe if you read my post... ;)

    That's pretty funny! So, as a pro, you test every offer to see if the same platform used by hundreds to thousands of other affiliates might not work for just you?! I must be a newbie then, because I NEVER check to make sure my one completion of said offer works, i will go through though to check the sales process for shitty leakage though, but i happen to trust the networks and their platforms (DirectTrack accepted).

    Its hard to know that one person signed up for sure with only 30, unless you had someone sign up. Even still perhaps the person completed that offer before and thus would not receive credit for it a second time, or they may not have completed the full offer requirements.

    ya know for the first few months i did real well with them, I continue to send them traffic, and NOTHING is converting. ehh what are ya gonna do. Cant blame them, but its hard not to notice, one day your making bank, the next your making nothing. Its like their way of weeding out affiliates that they dont want promoting their network. I do a lot of incent offers, and they would convert like crazy, now nada zip zilch big fat goose egg. I dunno whatever thats my MB rant.

    That happened to me also a while back, switched the offer to another network and then conversions were back again. strange. Also, one of there advertisers didn't want me running their one offer, but wanted more traffic to the same advertisers other offer, wtf??? 2 different type of offers. I figured I should be able to run offers where I want. Afterall, if it doesn't convert I don't get paid so what does it mater to them if I send it somewhere else. It's my costs that acrue for server, time, advertising...ect...ect.
