    Lightbulb Why Clicks are more than impressions, even 10 clicks and 0 impressions in CJ report?
    Hi Guys,

    Just I listed in the title: Why Clicks are more than impressions, even 10 clicks and 0 impressions in CJ reports?

    Did this ever happen on your CJ reports?

    Not every view of a link sets an impression. Links can be used that register clicks and sales, but not impressions. Affiliates can and do delete that part of the link, and Popshops code does not register impressions. Thus, for example if an affiliate has a PS shop with 20 products and a site visitor clicks three of the product links, there will be three clicks recorded but zero impressions.

    Some affiliates just want shorter links. Popshops is the big culprit and that is just the way they have it set up, probably for the same reason.
