    Hello Folks,

    At what particular times do Befree & LS update their reports?.

    I begin to see sales from both networks and do not want to check my stats every single minute like I do with CJ

    Linkshare seems to update stats once a day early in the morning for most sales from batch merchants. Realtime reporting of clicks/impressions occurs regularily throughout the day. It's a rare day when I see more than one sale from 60+ merchants I promote at LS scattered throughout my Cybermall. Don't trust the coding their merchants sent in promotional e-mail specials since often they are in error for ID#s and syntax. Use the link generator. You can take a nap sometimes trying to get their report generator to display the various reports.

    BeFree updates everyday due to a lot of batched sales reporting. Their server is much quicker than LS. They both have many major merchants who seem to batch sales once a month and the networks pad the clicks around billing time showing clickthrougghs above 50% Haw Haw. Make the merchant ROI figures look good even if no sales show up.

    For Linkshare, it really depends on the advertiser. Many update overnight. Walmart updates mid-morning. Outpost.com, Buy.com, and some others update in the afternoon.

    My reports haven't been updated at Linkshare since yesterday. Is it just me or anyone else. At least I hope they haven't been updated. They are showing Imps and Clicks but no leads or sales. I know for a fact I should have bout 50+ leads showing up. <IMG src=http://www.abestweb.com/ubb/icons/icon13.gif>

    I haven't had an update in Snare reports for two days now. I hope Commission Junction stays around for a long time. I hate "befree advertising on affiliate's sites at the affiliates expense" and LinkShare.
