    Clicks vs Imps.
    Question re: CJ reporting. On several of my sites CJ is showing Clicks but no Imps ... how can this be? For example, on one site I see 308 Clicks and 0 Imps. Assuming Imps stands for Impressions, this doesn't make a bit of sense.

    On another site I have 47,304 Imps and 99 Clicks. That seems like a very large gap ... only 99 people clicked through out of almost 50,000 views?

    I'm wondering if CJ is a worthwhile program to pursue.

    Anyone have thoughts or comments?

    Maybe the first example is from you direct linking to the offers landing page but not showing images or hosting the image yourself?

    The second one might be true as well. That is a .2 CTR I believe. That could happen. Do you have some other stats that are somewhere in the middle?

    I display products within the posts. The links on my site all have a direct link to the product. I don't host the images.

    That seems pretty low, doesn't it? The conversions are nil as I am getting no sales ... just clicks.

    Do you have some other stats that are somewhere in the middle?
    Yes, there are different stats that are not so drastic as these. It is just so confusing ... the clicks vs. imps.

    If the sales were there I wouldn't worry about it ... but I don't even have those --- yet.

    Thanks again.

    I'd love to have 0.20% CTR on some of my campaigns, really just depends on the offer and how well it fits your audience.

    No impressions mean you didn't include the 1x1 image impression tracking pixel. If you are pulling links from the datafeed there is no impression tracking pixel. The impression pixel doesn't affect click tracking, just impressions on your page.
