    Just wanted to get some feed-back from my fellow Abestweber's

    My CJ EPC has suffered a 50% decrease in 2003 ... Is this happening to others?

    I ask because I have a steady track record for nearly 3 years and this year is pitiful.

    What do you think?

    I used to get an EPC of $10 last year but this year down to around 8.

    Mine's only off by about 8%. A fluctuation of 8% could be anything, so I have no real guesses as to the reason. I would really have preferred to do a direct comparison (Jan 2002/Jan 2003) rather than compare with the entire last year, but I don't have a month-by-month record of it.

    It's really hard for me to say. One of my good merchants dropped there rate and that dropped my EPC. However, during the time that CJ was having troubles with tracking and recording (last couple of weeks), my EPC dropped from a steady $9 to $6. Now that CJ is working again, my EPC went back up.

    Mine dropped from 16.40 in July 2002 to a low of 4.30 in January. Parasites got me real good as the best merchants took up diversion tricks and huge reversal ratios.

    Mine has dropped quite a bit, because I'm sending some lower quality traffic to eBay, but while the epc goes down the income goes up, so I don't mind at all.

    I've increased from 63.32 to 71.43 on one of my websites. Overall I believe I'm down but I don't have good comparable stats because of some new sites as well as a run-away spider that clicked over 30k links.

    Thanks for the feedback all...

    I have went from a 2 year $20+ EPC ..to an all time low of $9.08 this month.

    All of the traffic variables are the same .. Something just isn't right..

    Point is .. Ive caught non reporting twice ... and scumware is a whole other ball of wax.

    Bottom line ... My roi sucks

    CJ .. wake up and get active on this board again...LS is looking mighty attractive to me and I was a big CJ activist.

    I caught a company that offered product links at cj that failed to have the tracking stuff in the product pages. Apparently they had them in the main pages of the site so sales were still coming in for some.

    I'm happy to report that it is now fixed and sales are coming in daily now but.... the tracking was missing for at least 3 months that I'm aware of possibly longer.

    EPC has dropped steadily since Christmas. My reported 7 day EPC is now around $12, but the last few days it has been around $1.

    Something is weird. Nearly had my first blank day at CJ for several months. Got a $2.99 sale at the last minute. Performics & LS are doing much better.
