    Hi, all:

    Victor just helped me figure out a problem and I think it would help others also.

    I was doing "test clicks" from a few of my pages, then checking the BettyMills stats page to verify they were showing up, but many weren't.

    Doing a test Victor suggested showed that a "click" only counts when it sets a fresh cookie. It will not be counted in your stats if your PC already has a cookie set from an earlier BettyMills visit. So I would click a bunch of times but only the first click would register.

    Blocking reading/setting of cookies in IE (Tools/Internet Options/Privacy) let every test click register at the BettyMills stats page, and they showed up within a minute or less.

    This issue won't affect normal visitor click-throughs, nor sales logging, only rapid-fire test clicking by one person.

    Victor can probably give a more detailed explanation of what's going on, but I thought I'd mention this to avoid having anyone else tearing out their hair -- and taking up Victor's time -- over this issue.

    My impressions number never changes. The clicks number does but not the impression number. Are you experiencing a similar problem?

    Yes, I'm seeing the same situation.

    I flagged Victor about this -- didn't want to appear that I was a parasite with clicks but no impressions -- and he said it's a common situation with sites built using only the datafeed data. And that he knows it and not to worry about it.

    It made sense to me, so I'm not worrying about it.

    I *assume* you'd see your number of logged impressions increase if you used some of their banners, but I'm not doing that.

    Jim,

    Tech still working on the banner rotator impressions issue. Should have something back to you soon.

    Hope all is well.
