    Hello BHW members, I have a problem with my wordpress and I really need your help so please try to help me this is the third time that I'm asking here and no answers..
    The problem is that Im using easyazon plugin in order to insert amazon affiliate links (Dont know if this detail important) and in the recent weeks it seems that my affiliate link cookies arent passed to the visitors because I got a lot of clicks to amazon but my conversion rate has dropped to almost 0 (It began to happen after I updated all of my plugins and the WP version). The wierd thing is that every time that I delete the cache of my website (with W3 Cache) the conversion rate is jumping up to normall and after a few days it backs to almost 0 and then agian -> cleaning cache -> back to normall sales -> dropping after few days -> and agian.

    What is possibely the problem? Maybe my affiliate links are cached after 1 click on each one of them and than the cookie isn't planted? (I dont know how cache work and all this sh*t so please explain me what I can do)

    I have read somewhere here in the forum that w3 total cache is messing up cookies for amazon. Try to disable it, and open a free cloudflare account if you dont have one. Cloudflare will give you the same results as W3 give or take.

    Maybe you could try disabling the plugin and see if you still see the same pattern without it? If you do then the issue could be something other than the plugin

    try another plugin, or disable it for a while and see if it's really the plugin that messes things up for you.

    W3 has caused similar issues for me and I dumped it, try cloudflare as mentioned above.

    D.A.M.N! To configure all these plugins (w3 cache, cloudflare, amazon, twitter etc) to work together is a pain in the A$$!

    LMAO... We use W3 Cloudflare MaxCDN on dual dedicated multi processor 32g ram each with MYSQL caching.... took us about 3 months to tweak all the settings to where now we seem to be all good. Word of warning though... W3 total cache is more for advanced users that understand what each setting does... if I was you... disable the w3 and figure out a better solution that is easier to set up and manage. Simply having something like Cloudflare works for most... just make sure to check the cache settings in your options ;)

    Nuke the W3 cache...If you EVER get to the point where you've got SO MUCH traffic that you need it, you'll be able to MORE THAN AFFORD to pay a guru of it to set it up perfectly for you. Just delete it. Completely. And then test your links yourself. You should see the tracking ID in the URL when you click the link on your site. Very easy to test and see yourself.

    If your using the amazon affiliate then please do not use any sort of cache plugins.
    Remove that & you can see the magic :)
