My first go...9 clicks and 0 conversions. Am I getting shaved or scrubbed?

    So I have a site with some locked content, and visitors complete 3 offers to unlock it (the locker has no postback). All of the offers are iframed, and they close and redirect after first page email submit within 4 seconds.

    I decided to use offers from a new network that has no history with me. I send some light traffic overnight and go to sleep. I wake up this morning and I had 9 clicks and 0 conversions. The thing is, I KNOW for a fact that at least 6 of those clicks converted and filled out the first page submit. My CR should be 67%. Don't worry about how I know, let's just say I can find out from my visitors.

    Am I being shaved, scrubbed, or what? I'd doubt that I'm getting scrubbed so quickly with a new network. Sure, none of my leads went to second page, but don't they generally not start scrubbing until later on? Or at least until I get more submits? It's only been 9 clicks and one day. All offers state: "CONVERTS ON FIRST PAGE EMAIL SUBMIT." My visitors submitted. It didn't convert. What gives?

    The only thing I'm really worried about is if the iframe closing has anything to do with ruining the conversions. I've read about pixel firing and I'm not sure if iframe close and redirect kills the firing.

    Any advice on what to do? I think I'll just switch offers to another network and give it a test. If I still don't get conversions, it's probably the iframes, which would suck terribly. :(

    It may also depend on your offer's conversion rate because for Blamads, they have a chart that shows each offer's conversion rate.

    I started a new offer and it shows that the conversion rate is 9% and I got 145 clicks with 8 conversions so I have a 11% conversion rate right now.


    I suggest you to let the offer run some more and decide then.

    just because the offer says it converts on 1st page does not mean its true... a lot of time the lead doesnt credit until the user does more... this is how they rob everyone and gather tons of emails for free. 9 clicks is not enough traffic
