    I'm very new to this, but basically I purchased an info domain then grabbed the top url from the html CJ gives me for the ad I wanted to post (androezrs.com/click-######-#### << this format). I just ignored the tracking pixel portion, is this necessary for everything to track properly? I have so much to learn...:confused:

    I setup a simple URL forwarding from my domain to this URL and yesterday I had 70 clicks tracked by zero conversion and I'm absolutely certain at least ten people filled out the e-mail submit with an accurate e-mail.

    Is it possible that somehow the URL forwarding is messing up CJ's cookies so I'm not getting credit for the leads or do they take more than 24 hours to update their leads sometimes?

    Sorry to seem anxious this was just a trial run and I felt it went fairly well however if I'm not getting any credit for leads I would definitely like to figure out the problem and resolve it before I try and expand this little campaign.

    Your probably getting shaved then, just use the URL they give you, if your clicks are showing up, then your being tracked correctly.

    There's my stats. I'm just perplexed why I'm not getting credit as I'm sure there's been more than one submit. I guess this is what people mean when they post 'getting shaved.'

    All things to learn I guess, thanks for your post Alex Brooks.

    Getting shaved.

    I am certain by looking at my stats that CPA companies shave. There is just no way one day you will do 33% conversion on a simple email submit and the next day you do 0% or so.

    Just get used to it and drive more traffic. I have no idea their shave factor.
