    i was about to post this too.

    traffic and clickthrus that normally converts between 150-200 clicks to one tranx are converting today at thousands to nothing.

    no sale so far today, not even from batch merchants.

    what's up, CJ? wrong server again huh?

    It started with me during the first week in June, however the last 4 or 5 days have picked up some but not up to par by any means.

    I'm seeing a general increase across the board of visitors, but not necessarily a trend, yet. Adsense figures are creeping up finally. just a little.

    Online sales drift down just after Father's Day and rebound in late July/early August for back to school and fall fashion.

    Think about it. After everyone is done with their Father's Day shopping it's vacations, the beach and lots of outside time. A serious reduction in the time spent shopping online.

    As a result, what happens is that the traffic is a different person. It's more lookers than buyers.

    not in my case. my traffic increased steadily, instead of reduced.

    as for the quality of traffic, my accounts in other networks are booming. contrast that with the sudden abrupt nonexistent sales at cj today.

    this server roullette game at cj really amazes me. maybe they are correct - tracking is not a problem. REPORTING IS! and i think it was verified to be true, at least once before.

    Sorry folks, I just checked the reports and there are no delays or changes in transaction volume that would cause reporting to be off.

    I have to agree, sales stink this time of year, depending of course, on what industry you focus on.

    I don't like it, but that's the way it is.

    thanks for the post, Todd. sorry, i have to vent, but this kind of conversion (or rather, lack thereof) is unheard of in my account, even when i was starting out.

    oh well, it's time to make linkshare links and ride this out.

    I've had 3 sales but only 1 posted on the cj account manager. all 3 sales can only been viewed on the monthly transactions.

    I've noticed a slow down too the past couple days. Also, CJ links are responding very slow today, which might be a reason for the recent lack of transactions. Isn't there anyway to add a few servers to speed up link response times? We lose a sale, you lose too remember...

    We've had a rise in clickthroughs and no sales this month. I did a couple test purchases on CJ in the past week too - neither has showed up. I am working with my AMs to see why, since all my links are correct. Seems strange to me. In one case, the sale was actually credited to another CJ affiliate.

    See Todd, this is what i was talking about - misreporting, not delayed reporting.

    couple that with very slow servers and what sale do i get? zero, nada, zip.

    I would have to look at the specific issue of misreporting above to comment. We have had no reports if these types of things occurring.

    Well, my two purchases were turned over to CJ from my merchants, so there have been some reports.

    I have not made a sale in over 48 hours. This is very strange as clicks look normal and I have a EPC that almost never falls below $75.00.
    I hope complaining helps!!! It has worked in the past.
    winning is a habit unfortunately so is losing
