    Bad stats?
    Noticed last night that after midnight pacific time, stats for number of clicks spiked. Figured it was just CJ running behind.

    Then for the past three hours they have continued to climb from yesterday! Now exceeding our total unique visitors to that one merchant for all of yesterday.

    Has to be a rogue bot triggering the clicks. I'm wondering WHY CJ is registering clicks from a bot - and WHY are they still updating yesterday's stats.

    Trying to 'catch' whatever bot it is as am noticing higher than normal clicks already today on a different merchant...

    Anyone else notice this?

    Clicks from yesterday continue to rise.

    Seeing false clicks for today, as well.

    Submitted a ticket to CJ.

    I'm thinking their bot filters are kaput...

    For me...sales continue to rise for yesterday. Been doing it all day so far. Be nice if the sales were "real"...so far have 1K in commission for yesterday, and still climbing!

    Anyways, nice to know I'm not the only one with weird things going on in their account today.

    Unfortunately for us, only clicks are climbing through the roof. Won't be much longer before we have ZERO EPC for the year, lol...

    These merchants that normally do batch reporting?

    I think CJ's system is just jacked up.

    Speaking with another affiliate and was reported that only their impressions are up. Screenie provided to me shows about four times the normal impressions...

    Another thing that leads me to thinking it's a CJ issue is yesterday it was only one merchant.

    Today it's five merchants - and there is no unusual traffic to the site, no IPs are 'hanging around', none of the usual suspects...

    Which frightens the hell out of me.

    If, out of three affiliates, one has 'bogus' sales, another 'bogus' clicks, and another 'bogus' impressions - how many others are there AND, what about the tracking of real sales?

    Just came here to see if anyone else was seeing this as well, so I guess I not alone.

    Figured I would chime in since CJ just got back to a ticket I sent regarding stats:

    Thank you for your inquiry. We are currently experiencing some reporting issues. I would suggest holding off until those have been resolved. I will send you a message as soon as we have a resolution.

    The "Performance Summary" on the homepage is telling me that I had about 4 times as many sales and 5 times as much commission yesterday as I can find by running reports. The difference is also not reflected in my total balance. Something is messed. Maybe they're accidentally telling me how much is getting diverted to an in-house account lol.

    Reminds me of the time that Linkshare credited several million dollars to my account, though they probably barely owed me 200 bucks at the time. That got fixed real quick.

    Other than they 'know' it's internal and that it's been escalated - nothing.

    Just hoping there is some real redundancy somewhere in their reporting to be able to correct things. Monday and Tuesday were pretty much ALL inflated clicks (7X's normal) and MINIMAL sales...

    That's unnerving - because SALES were practically non-existent for us, while "overstated" for others...

    The overstated sales had to come from somewhere.
