    All my sites have the SAME amount of traffic (according to urchin), but the kind of clicks CJ shows me is an enormously inflated number.
    This, of course, After clicks drastically slowing down for the past couple of days.

    Sounds similar to an issue I've had with Allposters where they aren't filtering spider activity from their reports. My Allposters reports show thousands of uniques with no sales.

    CJ is all F***** up, or Yahoo has a new ALGO that hates link's pages. All my sites have dropped off the map and the same thing with my link partners. Is it just us or has anyone else seen the same thing? Should I pull my link pages? please help I am dying here! thanx

    CJ is doing some really strange stuff lately. Today I've got 3 unique transactions. 1 is repeated twice, another is repeated 3 times and the last one is repeated 6 times. Would be nice if somebody neglects to reverse all of this because it's quite a hefty sum of cash

    Anybody else seeing this strange behavior?

    Are these duplicates specific to one or two advertisers? It sounds like they have not integrated correctly. If you PM me with their names, I will have our tech integration team look into it.

    I'd like to chime in with a "me too". I'm getting double postings on at least 6 different merchants, none of which overlap with those already mentioned here.

    Same here ever since the switch over the only traffic at all that I get from yahoo is either Overture based or from people browsing the directory itself.. weird thing is I have contacted them and they have told me there are no penalties applied against my domain and their spider makes frequent visits and spiders a LOT of my pages.

    Also seeing the same issue with CJ transcations today they are appearing twice..

    From Tod's comments it seems as though they have had the merchants apply new code or something to the transaction process? Because for the merchants I am seeing the dupliates for this issue hasn't happened in the past and I've had plenty of transactions with them?

    It's Yahoo. They tanked my sites too. Inktomi said that Yahoo traffic would stop on April 15th but it actually seemed to run a week longer than that. Then they tanked everything! My bandwidth stats and AdSense imps show that it's definitely a real traffic drop.

    Personally I'm leaving my sites alone, but it's time for some paid advertising. But certainly NOT with Yahoo PFI!

    some of my sites are being sent visitors from Yahoo search, finally. meanwhile, google has put several of my sites in the sandbox. but google still hits all my pages at least twice every 24 hours . . .

    Damn, lately it sounds like nobody wins except the engines. New sites go into Google's sandbox and old sites that have been in Yahoo's PFI are being dropped. Who's safe?!

    I'm just waiting for one of my sites to fall into the sandbox. Things are going almost too well for me to be comfortable.

    You mean to say those double sales, at slightly different times, are not for real? %$@#!!!!!!

    That means sales are really a lot lower than they should be. Hope you are working on that too, Todd.

    Might be worth checking your website performance reports to see if the dupe sales show different amts there. Just a thought

    Has anyone has a sale show up in the transaction report area since Todd identified this new problem. I have not, which is very odd. Have they shut down reporting temporarily?

    Also, I would like to know what the problem is? Are there other people missing sales because they went to someone elses site?? Or maybe, those duplicate sales are sales that people really deserve that were not tracked over the last couple of months because of the problems that cj had.

    My sales stopped showing up since Todd identified the problem, but when I look at my general performance report the numbers are accurate. I'm guessing the duplicates are based on real sales, they just got repeated a couple times. It's happened before.

    D*mn, and here I thought it was some cool new bonus structure!! Having been smitten with Google's sandbox game for the last 2 months, this was shaping up to be one of the better days I've had for a very long time.
