    Nothing on my site changed, same Performics merchants, same text ads, etc., but from making over $1000/month in April (and around that in prior months) I've seen a steady decline down to about $100 in July, to a trickle in beginning of August, at which time I moved the ads to the bottom of pages. Total for August: $19.10. So far this month? 12 bucks.

    I just can't understand what happened, especially since they used to be my best network.

    Anybody else experience this?

    (I should add that my site traffic remained steady right up until the mysterious Google update the last week in August, when it dropped by about 1/3. But Performics had stopped Performing before that.)

    I dunno . . . I'm seeing slow but steady sales, but in one account for a site selling plus size clothing. Another account with general stuff has been dead for a long time. The general site doesn't garner many hits which explains the problem there.

    The account selling clothes gives pretty steady checks lately even though the hits are not a high number.

    I've seen a huge decline in specific merchants. I can't explain why, but the conversions dropped off steadilky from March to now - like something is sucking the sales right away.

    I sent Perofmics an email asking them to look into it from their end, but naturally, no reply.

    You might want to check the date when the AdWhore company bought them and moved into the boardroom.

    My numbers have been steadily increasing since the beginning of the year with this month looking to shape up to be the best yet.

    Still my best network. I haven't seen anything drastic. Slight decline in conversions and traffic this month for me, but that isn't a surprise considering the content of my site.

    Maybe they've had a talk with BeFree on how to make sure merchants don't convert for affiliates

    Until the networks publish actual network wide conversion ratios for their merchant links ...they're all phonies yanking our chains.

    Perf is having issues about BYO links not working properly. If you see a slowdown in Perf, please check your links if they're working fine.

    BYO links are build your own links for merchants who have this feature enabled.

    Performics seems to be doing OK for me. Now if I could only get them to respond to my emails.
