    Question Invalid links generating traffic Reports
    CJ has "Run Reports Invalid links generating traffic" that will show a links that were clicked on my sites that are not valid for whatever reason and will not generate sales for me. Does Linkshare / Performics have such a report that will list links on my sites that are being used by my visitors but are not valid and will no way generate a commision for me even if the link works and they buy something...?? If so can you tell me where I would find the report?

    Thank you..........

    sorry i know it and forget it

    for SAS

    Invalid Reason
    Link Not Active

    means that link is inactive or the merchant is not active ?


    SAS report show temp. offline merchants
    as well as true dead/inactive merchants
    (SAS labelled them all just as temp. offline ?)

    So i don't know if i should remove the links right away,
    how to know if they are just off for a few days only ?

    Can you see any Referer URL in SAS report or just blank in that column ?

    I don't really have that problem since all mine are on Auto Deposit. Every now and then there is a glitch but mostly it works out nice. But if you have the other type of merchant, it's up to you how you handle that.

    Thank you all for the replies; I did not list SAS in the above request because I thought that it was easy to check merchantís status in the link/banner page where it shows Low Funds/Off Line.

    But since you told me about the report I said why not and have a look, and I found that one of my merchants "Jack and Friends" was listed a lot????? I when back to the Banner/Link page and for some reason they are on listed on that page at all so that is why I had no idea why they were offline. Second thing I just noticed that they only pay 1% commission I am sure it was higher when I signed up.
