    It is the 10th of the month and things do get a bit wierd with reporting around now. Otherwise, mine seem to be okay...a bit slow, but okay.

    sales are very slow today, but I'm seeing sales every hour, so there is no delay.

    I think some merchants are having issues with reporting:

    From ArtPrintCollection:
    "After analyzing the data for the last 3 months, we discovered the following major error in CJ's reporting data:

    The average program EPC was $14.64, not the $4.83 they are reporting.

    CJ reports 1,108,629 impressions, with 1,047,136 clicks, which is impossible. The difference of 61,493 was the number of actual clicks between April 9 - July 9.

    We have brought this to the attention of CJ, but they have not adjusted the figures."

    Wow, Trust, that is substantial. I think other merchants should take a close look at their own figures compared to CJ's and see if this is a global problem or just ArtPrintCollection (although I seem to recall another merchant stating the same thing last week).

    This is not impossible. Some affs may not be showing the impression pixel. Or, CJ's imp server has slowed down/given up.

    Awfully big EPC discrepency, though...

    I never use the imp pixel and my personal stats always look weird because I register far more clicks than impressions.

    I think a lot of affiliates use only the text link portion of a generated link and this will skew the impression/click reports drastically

    And BINGO that's why CJ want's LMI.... I for one only send the links and not the pixel those darn things will slow your page to a crawl.

    I too use only the text link portion with most merchants (not all though). I've wondered what this does aside from skewing imp/click results. Is it possible that this causes problems in tracking sales and/or commissions as well, and that I've been losing lots of money because of it? Any longtime CJ users ever do a side-by-side comparison of tracking pixel vs. non- tracking pixel link generated sales?

    Interesting point by apex; maybe this is a big reason that CJ wants JS links. More control over their stats. But datamining is probably higher priority.
