    One of my accounts show in a timespan about 100 clicks and mostly I have at least 1 sale. Now this account shows 500 clicks and since 3 days no sale. There must be something wrogn either in tracking clicks or in tracking sales.

    The number of visitors on my sites in the last few days has increased significantly, the number of clicks is going up, sales are plummeting.

    Yesterday clicks to sales was about a third of what it normaly is, today so far it's worse.

    Actually seems like everything is right. What you're experiencing is called Affiliate Marketing. I used to stress out all the time wondering why one day at CJ i could make $15 and next over $200 with the same traffic. Answer: Affiliate Marketing. It's crazy, it's just something you have to get used too. In the past i posted the same topics and i've come to the realization it doesn't change a thing. It's going to do what's its going to do, and i just go work on my site.

    Independants and other networks manage to maintain a fairly consistent clicks to sales and impressions to clicks ratio, CJ's is very inconsistent.

    This proves to me that something is wrong at CJ, it isn't just affiliate marketing, otherwise the same effects would be seen outside of CJ.

    "Independants and other networks manage to maintain a fairly consistent clicks to sales and impressions to clicks ratio, CJ's is very inconsistent."

    For who? Maybe you and others, for some people could be opposite. For some CJ is consistent while maybe Performics, LS, BF and indys are inconsistent. This month CJ is consistent for me while Performics isn't.

    I think you're just having a bad CJ day which happens sometimes. Today everything is fine for me, tomorrow maybe not.

    Not all affiliates are going to have the same results. What might be consistent this month, might be inconsistent next month. CJ counts clicks differently than Performics, don't know how the other networks count them. Could be a SERPS shift, could be a reporting delay, could be lots of things.
