Why do I get random clicks on my CPA networks?

    I was looking at my click reports today across 3 networks and I have a questions. On each network I have like 3 or 4 offers that have 1-3 clicks to each one, but the funny thing is I havn't done a single thing to promote these offers. In fact Ive never even seen these offers or looked them up. How does my referral link get out there and how am I getting these random clicks? Id love to be able to "scale" up doing nothing and actually get some conversions out of them!

    I have wondered about that very thing myself.

    I'm getting a lot of leads from offers I don't promote at all..
    Maybe it's when user clicks on offer and it says "Offer not available", and after that it redirects him to other available offer, also with your aff link.

    Yep, that's exactly it. When you send traffic to a dead offer they'll redirect it to a different one.

    if you are pushing traffic to another offer on that network, and it accepts only traffic from certain countries, if a few hits come through from non-allowed countries, they will be redirected away from that offer to another one (that you are not necessarily actively promoting)

    or it could also be from a few hits coming through an old link of yours that points to an expired offer, then it will be redirected to another current offer (as suggested by other members previously in this thread)
