    SurfMyAds
    Has anyone had any problems with SurfMyAds.com, specifically Couponwinner? I haven't seen anything bad about the site and read that they were voted Advertiser's Choice for the 2010 Golden Link Award, but am observing suspicious behavior.

    Have worked with SurfMyAds.com for a number of years and always found them to be above board. What suspicious behavior are you observing?

    Hmm that is interesting; thank you for your feedback.

    Couponwinner has already exceeded sales from all of last year and outshining our top affiliates; however, according to Hitwise, they are not bringing any traffic to our site and our promotions have remained the same. Finally, when I check the placement of ads, I cannot find our brand. But when I question it, the account manager tells me which categories we are listed under and suddenly they are there. Very strange.

    Do you have any advice?

    Ask your network for a referring url report for all traffic from the affiliate over the last month. Ask the affiliate for the same.

    Thanks, Chuck!

    Akagorilla, I do regularly monitor keyword bidding during business hours, maybe I need to keep a better eye on it after 5 pm?
