    I was running a campaign on POF, when all at once the impressions slowed down.
    I even raised my bid to 0.080 and still nothing??

    I just was wondering if anyone else has had or have this happen too them.
    If so what steps did you take too get the traffic rolling again?

    Any help on this would be great:confused:

    CTR is too low. You need .15 or above to be profitable

    Your bid is too low. At 0.08, you will get bumped during busy parts of the day and only get shown to people who view tons of pages. Depending on time of day and target, top 10 ads are running 0.30-0.90 -US targeting will be on the high side. If you want to experiment with low bids, try targeting Canada or other countries.

    Your smart - figure it out.
    This is good thread to follow as I am running some POF campaigns at the moment. I've noticed that weekends are prime time for sure and approval rates for ads take a little longer to receive. I really like to tweak my ads by the minute and it seems that if I go overboard it flogs the system a bit to the point where even if I have bid .80 it still requires a few minutes to start delivering impressions again.

    My highest ctr was also around .09% via POf. However, realizing that my cpa payout is $30per sale epc/ctr is not the same. I paid a little under $3 per click so in fact the cpa ctr was around 33% but no conversions. If my pof ctr was at 15% my cpa ctr would then be around 45%. I only let it run for 17 clicks which tells me it must be a bad ad-to-cpa campaign. Does this sound about right? :D
