    Wondering if anyone else is having problems with the Rhapsody affiliate program.
    I am having two problems

    The reporting has got to be way off because I have been running the ads for about a month with about 100 in earnings. You may want say "stop that", but the fact is that about 50% of my site is integrated with Rhapsody. This is something else that makes me wonder.
    I check my exit pages and about 15% of them are Rhapsody. This does not mean that they left my site. It simply means that they opened a Rhapsody playlist.

    The playlist themselves have a link to "start free trial" that prompts listeners to do so throughout the playlist. I am wondering, Are they scamming my traffic by having people sign up through my playlists rather than using my affiliate link.
    And if someone "*clicked*" the normal affiliate link upon entering my site, and then signed up through a playlist, am I missing that too?

    Also, putting together a Rhaplink is not like iTunes, it's a real pain in the ass.

    OK, I KNOW this sounds a little fishy, so has anyone else had problems with this company?
