    Quick Impression Tracking Question
    If I place 4 different banners to the same merchant - each with it's own 1x1 pixel - and someone visits the page...

    will it show up in my Linkshare reports as FOUR impressions or just one?

    Yes it will which is why it's generally a good idea to strip out a lot of them as it inflates your stats on the click to impression count, from a merchant stand point I completely ignore the impresson info because I know that a person with 10 links on one page is likely creating 10 impressions

    Cheers

    Thanks Chris - you actually answered my SECOND question also - can I only keep ONE 1x1 pixel.

    I put up a link to a merchant known to be associated with a parasite to prove to myself that only 1 out of a million clicks converts into a sale...

    But... they are actually converting at 19%!!!

    The only stat that was throwing me for a loop was (without logging into LS for the actual numbers)

    Impressions = 444
    Click-thus = 44

    Where the hec were all those non-clicking people going if they weren't going to the merchant???

    But since there's probably about 10 links on the page - each with a 1x1 pixel - that would explain it.
