    Cookie Question
    Today I noticed that 3 of my sales that posted yesterday, have click dates of November 30th. This is all fine and dandy except the ads for these 3 sales have not been running for 5 days. How can this happen? Anyone?

    Thanks

    Not following. I don't understand the 5 days part.

    Did you physically remove the file for the ad or did you just deactivate it?

    A Cached Page in a Search Engine... Happens all the time...

    It is a pain when trying to keep track of sales on certain Ads that have a limited time.. etc...

    Try putting these two meta tags in your pages to keep the SE's from CACHING OLD PAGES...
    This will do nothing accept make sure that the visitors see the updated page and not an older page.

    HTML Code:
    meta name="robots" content="noarchive" 
    meta http-equiv="pragma" content="no-cache"
    Have Fun.....

    These were PPC ads that were deactivated 5 days ago to answer MindSprinters question as well.

    Perhaps I just answered my own question. I suppose even though you deactivate a PPC ad that it still takes a certain amount of time for the cancellation to filter through the system? I figured it may take 24 hours or so, but 5 days..??

    Thanks

    Add Handler, thanks for the input, and I do apologize for not being more clear. These were PPC ads. However, you have provided me with more insight on this cached page thing. I never considered that. Thanks

    PPC ad or not it is still a cached page in a search engine.
    PPC ads can be cached just like any other part of the page.

    99% "almost positive" it is a cached page in SE....
    It wouldn't take five days to deactivate a PPC ad...

    Makes sense... To reinforce your thoughts, these same clicks that CJ is picking up, are not registering with the PPC search company. Interesting...

    Thanks again

    Airstrip - "these same clicks that CJ is picking up, are not registering with the PPC search company. Interesting..."

    Then it is official... the PPC ad is canceled... but the ad is still being displayed on a cached page... That is why the PPC is not showing any clicks... they do not pay for canceled PPC ads...

    Those meta tags should solve your problem...

    Have Fun.......!

    I have run into this problem before on sites... the cached pages are a royal PITA sometimes....

    So this is a good thing right? You're getting sales on "non existent ppc ads"

    Maybe you should start them up against since you're getting sales? If the conversion is good and you're making money, don't know.

    Great thought, except the reason I stopped running them was due to poor conversions.. Oh well!! Maybe I should try pausing my best converting ads!
    Knowing my luck........... maybe not

    Thanks for everyone's input..
