    Todays Stats??
    In SAS stats area their is a link to "Todays Stats" where normally you will see the last URL clicked to get form my site to the merchant. Sometimes it says only:
    Last Page Clicked: ,
    Can anyone explain why sometimes this is shown.

    It means the referer is not known.
    You have no referer when the click is done by a bot, could be SE spiders, link checkers..., or if the visitor is on an anon proxy or is blocking his referer info... or if you click on your links while you're building your site and this one is not live yet.

    I've often wondered if this is also because it's a book marked link that is clicked and/or it's a cookied visit. Anyone know?

    This could also happen if the person directly went to the merchant website and purchased something (repeat customer).

    I learned a little more on this today. A return visitor to your merchant will not register a hit in your SAS stats unless he is again using one of your affiliate links. If the visitor is using his Favorites or History Manager you will not see a hit in the stats at SAS. You will still get credit if there is a sale due to the cookie the visitor has on his PC.

    This still had me confused and I called SAS today and they verified that this is the way it works.
