    Worst Weekend
    This weekend, sales dropped big time comparing to previous weekends. EPC dropped to single figure, clicks are same. Is there any special event in US ?

    Nothing worth a drop of your sales.
    From where is coming your traffic? SE, directory links, repeat customers...
    I had a surge of traffic these last few hours. Incredible on a Sunday. But I know it's just a Google trick. Just to make me lost my sleep.

    Hitting the 5th percentile - it hurts more than the 95th.

    For me:
    TERRIBLE Saturday, FANTASTIC Sunday so far. Why? I have no clue.

    This weekend has been a bit below average for me for both days, and is part of a general trend downwards in the second half of January for me (but not too rough; just not quite like December and first half of January). However, SAS merchants have been doing well and have somewhat compensated for the CJ trend.

    Certainly this speaks to the importance of diversifying your merchant partnerships, and also how good an idea it is to join other affiliate networks to further diversify!! I'm happy I've taken the initiative to do that.

    Certain CJ merchant partners have been rock solid steady for me for months, but many have seen a big lull since late last year. Some of it might be seasonal, some perhaps tracking problems, but part of it is due to MSN adCenter's inconsistency in serving my ads. Grrr.

    Same here... Sunday visitors were click-happy.... today - zip, nada, nothing (made more at the penny arcades with adsense).

    From the merchant end we did not see any changes in our sales or EPC the last few days.

    Saturdays are always my worst days - my theory is that it's because people are outside alot, shopping in malls etc.
