    How many times a day do you guys check your affiliate accounts to see how much you've made????
    I have to admit. I check my affiliate accounts too many times every day.

    If you are constantly checking your statistics then you are probably making little money since you won't have time for anything else like affiliate marketing.

    I concur. Immediate gratification may be a morale booster, but more time working and less time looking will yield better results.

    With that said, I usually check my full range of stats first thing in the morning, which is also my time to check representative sites on my various servers - to make sure everything is working correctly. I also (usually) check "numbers" in the evening.

    With SharaASale, however, because I frequently work within their interface, the running balance is visible on most screens, so you might say I am constantly aware of any progress there.

    I usually check about 3 times a day, once in the morning, once in the middle of the day, then before I go to bed.

    I tend to check my stats as far as what keywords they are using to get to my site a lot more frequently, the referring url, if there are any 404s, how many clicks to my merchant, etc. I like to keep track with as much info as possible so if there is a problem, I can fix it asap. It also helps me determine which keywords are working, and which ones aren't so I can adjust my PPC accordingly.

    most days once or twice a day, but some days I look at them hourly. gives me an idea of what's selling, so I know what to promote.

    LOL I was just teasin' about not leavin' them! Not a million bucks a day, but not 0 either.....

    Seriously, I keep multiple tabs open and leave CJ and SAS open in a couple...... if I'm waiting for a design to load for my t-shirt shops or feel the need to stop building pages for a few minutes to let my brain rest, I'll mosey over and check the stats or wander in here or my other forum I haunt and check for new posts......

    I'm still in "study" mode when it comes to affiliating, so my sites aren't doing huge numbers right now, but they're steady, which is great. I'm working on a book (unrelated) that takes up a lot of time, so I only check my stats a few times a week. Once I knock out the book - probably next month - I'll be ramping up my affiliate stuff and I expect I'll be checking stats twice a day. That's the plan, anyway

    once in the morning.

    Then I spend my time on building and editing sites.

    Now if I could only discipline myself to spend less time checking out ABW!

    Most of the time I check before I go to sleep or if I don't I'll check in the morning.

    Don't actually check em, First thing when I get on the computer in the morning is log into all of em. (except amazon and the in-house ones...maybe only once a month or so with them. )

    I have aol, IE and mozilla open all day and my sites are open all day while I'm editing them. My inboxes for email are open all day, too. So got three browsers with a bunch of tabs. I just keep editing my sites all day with all the networks open going back and forth and popping in here now and then so anytime the stats are there starin at me if I wanna see em. (well, AL and SAS are where I spend most of the time and they show at the top of the pages.)

    When it comes to money, more time making, less time counting. On any given day I usually check some of them, but not all and not often. I only do a serious check when I want to do some serious analysis.

    It varies greatly with me it all depends on what I have going on, it may only be once a day, it may be many times a day but not all of them. I agree that if you spend all your time checking accounts that important work will not get done.

    I think I am checking page stats more . . . don't want those automated pages to die because of changes in the feeds.
