    As a merchant, what sort of information can they know about me?

    EPC? Websites? what else?

    And by the way, can they see moRE information after I join the program?

    Once you join our program, we can see:

    PID, WebSites, Country of Origin, contact e-mail, Date you Joined CJ, any promotional methods or incentives listed, network earnings bar (not the actual dollars), 3 month EPC, 7 day EPC and can run reports on your performance within our program including sales, clicks, impressions, etc.

    We can't see this info on anyone other than those in joined or applied status.

    There is no real sensitive information made public.

    Can you list down the publishers sort by EPC? What's the best EPC you have seen?

    before This, I really thought Merchant can actually search for publishers they want just like we can search for merchants!

    Javi - We can't see the name or anything like that. There is more info available in a whois lookup on a domain name than in the CJ interface.

    Redfish - I wish it were as easy as running a report of all top affiliates and contacting them. Unfortunately, it's not that easy.

    Ditto. My first thought when I saw this topic's question was "not much".

    I routinely see >$100 EPC for top publishers. Some are much higher than that. It really depends on what types of programs they are promoting. Publishers that focus more on financial offers with larger bounty type CPA offers will usually have higher EPC numbers just like the advertisers do. Most of the top programs have 3 month EPCs of >$50, so it is safe to assume that the top publishers are earning more than the average.

    In the end, a high EPC does not necessarily mean a publisher is making a lot of money. Many top earnings on these boards have average EPCs but earn thousands of dollars each month. Conversely, some publishers on these boards have very high EPCs and earn very little in commissions.

    I know one person here whose EPC is less than $1.50 and I wish I got his/her commission checks. :moneystack:

    Todd is there any chance that CJ would clean up a publishers listing of deleted sites? I am speaking about the website settings page for publishers. It does not delete old domains from it even after months or years.

    Sounds like a good idea to me. I'll pass this on to prod dev.

    can pages be tracked from an overture/google ppc listing?

    can the merchant see which keywords brought users to your site?

    No. Advertisers cannot see keywords that publishers are buying to market them - unless they go to the search engines and look for themselves.

    We will however shortly enable this feature for publishers to track the keywords they are buying so they can better understand the ROI and bcome even moreeffective for our advertisers.

    I understand though, for an additional fee, Todd has a drawer full of those x-ray vision glasses they sell in the back of comic books. Not sure if they really work or not.
