    uh oh.. Thank God it was a false alarm. Man, I really thought there was some bad news and first checked BBC even before opening this thread. Airstrip, I totally understand what you might be going through but please use caution with such titles. And btw.. come over to MontRED.. promise you won't have complains with tracking & reporting.

    take care,

    Maybe it's people clicking your links and then finding out the text on those links didn't meet the destination. So no sale.

    Good thought... but
    all links are specific and targeted. Or are we suggesting some of CJ's links are not connecting?

    I'm suggesting there is no earthquake in California.

    Tracking cannot be affected by earthquakes, meteorite impacts, or divine intervention.

    It can however, be affected by human error or human intervention.

    I'm not seeing any problems here. My last transaction posted about an hour ago and was from about two hours ago.

    I would second the motion to advise against sensationalist thread titles to get people to look. Even if your sales stopped there is no reason to be such an alarmist.

    Good point. I'm sure many were unduly concerned when they read the title. I've changed the title.

    Here is why that kind of title is NOT funny to people living in California, nor to their friends and loved ones living at a distance - 1981:

    Killer Quake

    14 Killed, 9 at Two Hospitals;
    Southland Damage in Millions

    Scores Trapped
    In Building Ruins
    And in 1994

    And I do apologize!! And thank you MichaelColey for adding the "NOT"! The more I thought about it, the more I knew I needed to change it myself.

    I knew I would draw attention but I didn't think about offending or causing any bad feelings with memories or serious concerns. Again, please accept my apologies.

    For anyone who depends on Google for their traffic....there's some kind of a glitch going on right now , where a lot of their listings are falling into the 'Supplemental Result' bin. Might affect some peoples traffic..

    Title edited again, because when I saw it I was at a loss and clicked most trepiditiously because I didn't read the (not!!!! - as it was on line #2).

    but it is possible for a search to have supplemental results returned right up with others near the top. i understand from recent reading that "supplemental" could mean just that a site is not indexed very often but still could be deep crawled well when it does happen.

    Talking
    Supplemental results may occasionally show up in searches, but I dont think its a good thing to hope for. Anyway, they're crying about it over at WMW.

    i really think tracking is off!

    why?

    i clicked on one of my links and the click didn't even show up in the reports.

    not really a good sign.

    come on cj, kick the damn server.


    and oooh by the way, my balance decreased and i searched high and low and way way back, but i still can't find the culprit.

    All I can tell you is that the clicks are there, but the conversions are not. My EPC is WAY down since the last update.

    how did you know all the clicks were there?

    if there were actually 50 clicks, and only 10 were reported, you're assuming that the 10 were basically it?

    compare that with my experience. i clicked like crazy and the number of clicks reported is still stucked at a certain number.


    then again, your epc may be down because the clicks with sales happen to be the ones that were not tracked.
