    Mkay, I'm a little confused. When I log into CJ there's a little blurb about how I might be losing revenue due to invalid links, yadda, yadda, yadda. When I run their report, most of the URLS listed that supposedly have invalid search links are indeed from my web sites. Others, however, are not:

    http://216.239.41.104/search
    http://216.239.53.104/search
    http://66.102.7.104/search
    http://www.google.pt/search

    Now my question is: Why are these various Google links showing up in MY invalid links report as sources?

    Because your CJ account number is embedded in links.

    Looks like someone clicked on a link from a cached page in Google.

    I had some from the atomic energy assocaition website the other day, would like to see cj explain that one, hehe, not that I wouldn't mind having some links on their site.

    I've a bunch of merchants in another network who get many clicks from me, supposedly, but the clicks are coming from search engines instead of actual click-throughs. Someone in that network killed my account for a while thinking I was up to no good.

    I want to run this report you mentioned...

    Is this report under Custom Reports and called "Invalid links generating trafiic"?

    If it's the correct report, mine's empty! :-)

    I get about 30-50 invalid clicks a day from the leading INTERNET resource in my vertical. The clicks are for a merchant I dropped and I tried to let the website know via their contact form but their contact form doesn't work.

    Makes me feel good though that the leading resource in my area has thought worthwhile to copy my content and fallen down a little on their search and replace efforts

    I am getting invalid clicks from a site in Brazil. It's in Portuguese, and has no CJ links, as far as I can tell.
