    Any sales?
    Is anyone else experiencing a total lack of sales since Saturday? That just doesn't happen to me, so I'm wondering if something is broken again. I've had Zip-Zilch-Nada for sales on Sunday and Monday.

    No - it's not just you - it's me too! I was just going to post something, myself. If your EPC is being driven into the ground, like mine is today - it's probably a slow down in transaction reporting............I hope.

    I have gotten 0 sales this month from CJ not a big deal because I only promote some merchants on cj sometimes and when I promote them I tend to get a few sales. However on befree although tmobile hasn't recorded a sale and I know sales were made I have made over 100 dollars in comission with some befree merchants this week alone. Befree and Linkshare converting for me but CJ is not but its my fault that it isn't

    It's been very slow for me since the upgrade. Not much I can do about it right now, except wait. I may do a test purchase or two to double check everything is working.

    I've been getting sales, but for the most part, they are small ones. Did have one $20 commish, but that has been a rarity lately.

    Like Spencer - my recent sales have been slow, steady and small - however, it is the same for my LS sites - the grass is greener on neither side...

    cj links are timing out on cj's side, not the merchant's. pages are taking a long time to load, if they do load at all. but it seems that the problem is varying from merchant to merchant. so maybe, it depends on whether the merchant is on a good server or not. that probably explains why on certain days, my performing merchants suddenly stops producing and my dormant merchants suddenly lights up.

    I only do eBay and have been getting an active reg every other day plus about 5 dimes per day. I've had zero registrations and zero bids/bins since May 4. The transaction report for the month looks quite strange. Transactions each day until the 5th, then zilch. Argh... Is it CJ or eBay?

    Zero sales this month from CJ & LS. Several from indies, although I have many more network links.

    CJ has been slow all month after a decent uptick in April and relatively low reversals from Zappos today.

    Only a few very very small sales. All commissions are under $10.- Some kind of database problem which deletes all over $9.99 ??

    I've also seen a big drop in sales this month (just my CJ sales, not elsewher), but I credited that to an equal drop in clicks and impressions (according to CJ reports) and thus I must have fell out of favor with some search engines. However, I have over 70 active domains with CJ merchants and this trend has impacted 88% of those domains, which indicated it is global for my CJ merchants and statistically significant. Now, after reading the above related experiences, I start to wonder if maybe it is something else. Perhaps the search engines have figured out the newer CJ link codes? Perhaps a parasite has figured out a new way to get our sales? I don't know, but I am starting to consider thoughts like this that I had not before.

    If you have a drop in visitors, then it could be the search engines. If not, it can't be them.

    If it would have been parasites, then all the ones who are complaining would have been infected the same time. Can't be true.

    even if the number of visitors are the same or higher, the quality of visitors can also be an issue. out of 5 that i randomly checked last night, i think three to four of them are non-U.S.

    Sales stopped on the 7th.

    With the last upgrade, only some servers were affected.
    I guess it's my turn to wait and stew over the lack of sales.

    It does seem really odd though because the transaction reports detail all the sales and correct commissions but the web site performance is showing a lot less sales.
    Never argue with an idiot.
    The person watching, may not be able to tell the difference!

    Last sale event date 11-May-2005 06:26 PDT. Nothing at all since then.

    Normally, people would be buying things from 6am onwards so there is something wrong here.
