    Question 0 Impressions and 1 Click
    Hi

    One of the merchants I have is reporting that I have 0 impressions and 1 click. Do you know how it is possible to have 0 impressions and 1 click?

    Sure, it's possible.
    CJ html links have two parts, click tracking and image or impression tracking. Only click tracking is important. You can have sales and clicks without showing impressions if your links don't use the second part.
    Code:
     
    http://www.server.com/click-XXXX-YYYYYYY" >YOUR LINK
    http://www.server.net/image-XXXX-YYYYYY" width="1" height="1" border="0"/>

    Rule#12 Ad impressions don't mean beans, forget them! They almost never are accurate nor a REAL indicator of anything for a variety of technical and lay reasons.
    Continued Success,

    So it means, Its not important to add ImageURL(Impression) Tracking URL along with Click URL.

    So I should nt add this , If added already should I remove it.
    If I am not wrong.

    Thanks in advance.

    The one click could be the merchant testing the link to make sure all is well. -
