    I have received two emails today from advertisers saying that publishers were inadverently dropped from their programs. One even said they cannot get any explaination from CJ about how this happened (which I find very disturbing).

    One was CatalogCity.com and the other was GardensAlive.com. You all might want to check and see if you are still active with them.

    I have hundreds of merchant links and it makes me wonder how many others I might be loosing clicks for. Do the advertisers even know that their publishers have been changed to expired status? How many days will go by before they realize it? How do I check the status of everyone of my advertisers?

    Important questions....hope someone from CJ provides us with some information, either here or at the CJ site.

    Ron,

    If you haven't, check the invalid clicks report. Thats where I found a couple of the merchants. The worste thing is we have to click join again and now wait for the approval to kick in before the links are tracking. Pretty messed up if you ask me. Maybe CJ should send a letter to all the merchants telling them to go to auto approve until this bug is fixed.

    Coincidence Me baby!

    How typical...

    CJ drops something worthwhile like Product Link data, due to bandwidth and storage issues, then they roll out a new Affiliate Manager that is very inefficient, increasing both bandwidth and effort to get to relevant information.

    It probably uses more disk space as well. Nice. Very nice, CJ.
