I just recently did an experiment with my links and had some scary numbers. I created a site which featured a merchants products and used CJ links. I didn't use the afsrc code just copied what they gave me and put it on the site. I let it run for a while then I replaced the cj links with php coded redirections to protect against overwriting.
Just CJ Links I had 1 click in 21 impressions.
PHP Coded Links: 10 clicks in 21 impressions.
I know that these numbers are not always accurate. The users were different and some would be more likely to click then others. The large difference in numbers suggests that my links are being overwritten by something on the end-users computer in my opinion.

Now, get 2,100 or even 21,000 impressions and your results will start to have real meaning.

I would love to get 2100 but the traffic was PPC. Targetted PPC at that. I don't feel like forking over the money for an experiment. I'm going to stick with the PHP and continue to get sales.

just to clarify this did you get sales in those ten clicks? Is it possible that a bot had visited you kicking off a click, where as it would have simply copied it in the plain html version?
Do you have java bots denied from your site already?

According to my log files on the web server these are individuals browsing for products. There was one sale with the php and none with the generic links.

You could be tracking sessions with the php redirects which would catch visitors that did not allow cookies.
