    Doesn't it make you angry when you have EPC rates of under 1$ for every 100 click-thrus for merchants (or entire networks)! The way I see it, a targeted click-thru normally costs a minimum of $0.05 per click ($5 per 100) so in short, the low EPC merchants (or networks) are simply using the affiliates, or perhaps the parasitic BHO applications are using the affiliates. Thank goodness for adsense. I have large chunks of pages that I can not replace, but adsense alone, factored into the wasted clicks has brought the effective EPC over $3.

    $3 is still low.

    Instead of getting mad, just find merchants that work for you, learn to convert. That's it.

    That's why I don't buy traffic. I would lose money every time. But, this way, I do make money just fine.

    I have learned my lesson. Don't invest a lot of time with one single merchant, especially without knowing for a fact they convert. With the particular pages in question, I really don't have a good replacement option, so the adsense is sort of a bandaid.
