    Is it just me or is everyone else seeing a problem with sales the last few days?

    Yesterday all I saw was ebay dimes (which of course there were more reversed from previous days than sales - but that's another gripe), nothing else. Google or Yahoo hasn't done anything stupid so my pages are still in good standing on the search engines. My visitors and clicks are normal so WHAT GIVES?

    Please tell me CJ is just behind in reporting sales or something and I get my money. $5 total for a day does NOT make me happy!! I earned more on the 4th of July for chirst sakes.....

    Last two days were miserable. Today is very nice. Probably depends on the merchants you're promoting.

    Everything is fine here in spite of a slow CJ day.


    YOU MUST DIVERSIFY!

    Then, you won't care if CJ or some other one is having a slow day or not.

    It is called risk management!

    or probably depending on the cj server you're in.

    Ah, who said I only used CJ? I was simply pointing out that there is a serious problem, if it's just not on my end. It doesn't look like "just a slow day" on my end, since even on the slowest of days I see at least a sale or two from a real merchant and not just ebay.

    Funny how the "missing sales" threads always appear on the CJ forum.

    My sales are really bad for the last few days (for CJ merchants).

    I like the CJ datafeed, the only thing that keeps me hanging on hoping they get their act together.

    Can't see any problems with main main CJ merchants. All humming along nicely.

    The ones that convert, at least.

    I've been saying for months now that something isn't right with CJ. However, I'm not letting it get to me anymore as I'm doing just fine on other networks. If I get the odd sale on CJ these days it comes as a pleasant surprize. In fact I had a sale today out of the blue for a merchant who has only converted for me once before - go figure!!

    It has been a horribly slow month in cj.
    The rest of the networks and the indys are ok.

    Best month ever here, after dec 2003, but if the trend continues, will overtake december 2003's numbers in the next 4-5 days

    I'm just one sale shy of last month's total sales on CJ. Actually, given that I have a reversal this month for a sale last month, I guess I've already tied last month. Surprising, given the rocky July 4th weekend of salelessness.

    Still not as good as the strangely great third week of June, but I'll take it.

    Just hope it keeps going and growing.

    Everything is cooking EXCEPT for CJ merchants.
    The last 3 months there have been horrible. Same traffic, same merchants that did very well for 3 years are now dead. Go figure.

    Seems it all died the day after VC made their offer to buy CJ. Interesting.

    Google is up 100% this month. SAS is up around 20% but consistent as always. Friendfinder is way up. Directleads and Websponsors are about average. Indies are working okay.

    Performics and LS are not counted because I only plug 2 deals on each and they are more gift like stuff and I really don't care if they make a sale. They are just listed to get the google ads on those pages.

    Too bad about CJ....they "coulda been a contenda."

    I'm going to stay out of this thread Because if I were to post something here I would have to say that sales have started to pick up the last several days. But I am not going to say that because we all know what happens when I say sales have been pretty good lately, they will stop again. So I won't say it and just stay out of this thread

    Well from the other end of the spectrum as an AM my CJ affiliates have been smokin' lately. I have no complaints and haven't had a slow CJ day in I can't remember how long. Of course most leads come from only about 10 different sites but hey I aint complainin'.

    Absolutely weird - Sales just bottomed out at 0 - Good thing is if you don't sell anything, they can't reverse anything. We temporarily boosted traffic to some of our sites with PPC and all it did was eat up cash fast. Almost as if people are just looking and not buying - at least from us. Looking forward to August - maybe next month will be better!

    Sales are good today, only seeing a 1 hr difference between event and posting dates, so not seeing any delays on my end.

    you kind of feel there's a problem when

    1. your usual converting merchants are silent.

    2. your nonconverting merchants suddenly come to life.

    3. your other usually nonconverting accounts suddenly come to life.

    I need a server change too!


    Teamstore has been silent for a while now on my end.

    Only one sale per day for this week.

    Could be worse.
