    Hey everyone. I know this is my first post, and I'm probably going to make a fool of myself.. But everyone has to start somewhere.

    Anyways, I saw the ClickBank messed up with their stats and all, but then I saw that under statistics, it said "Order Form Submit Count" = 1..
    So my question is pretty much: Does this mean I have a sale? It's still showing sales: Zero and 0$ earned.

    Also, if anyone could explain the other fields (Hops per order field impression etc.) it would be great.

    Here's an example picture:

    Again, sorry for making a fool of myself!

    An order form submit doesn't necessarily result in a sale. One example of when it doesnt result in a sale is when someone entered incorrect credit card details which resulted into a failed transaction.

    Hops per order field impression is the average amount of hops before someone clicks on "buy now" and ends up on the order form page.

    No that does not mean you have one sale. Someone could have clicked 'Buy Now' or whatever, seen how much it costs and then decided against the purchase.
    EDIT : fujing beat me to it

    Thanks a lot for the explanation. It actually helped me out a lot.

    Would these stats be considered bad or good? Also, I only started my site 3 days ago.. How am I doing, in your opinions?

    One last question, too: Google didn't index my site yet, after 3 days! I have at least 15 backlinks and submitted it to a lot of whois sites etc.. Is this normal?

    looks like good stats if you got 100 hops for a 3 days old site. Hope you get a sale soon :)

    Have you done social bookmarking for your site? I started a site 2 days ago and submitted to about 10 social bookmark sites and I checked today and its been indexed already...

    But google is unpredictable so just be patient... indexing usually takes a week or 2

    Did you include Google Analytics already on your site? Also submit your sitemap to Google Webmaster Tools, that should speed up the process. Like fujing said, social bookmarking helps a lot.

    Oh, I thought it was normal to be indexed after a day or two, not 2 weeks.. Well thanks a lot for the information then, it really is appreciated. I'll try the social bookmarking things then.
