    Hmm. Last month was my best ever at CJ. This month, they have started badly. Sales in the first 13 days of October are 30% of the sales for the first 13 days of September. Just glad that my sales at other networks are ALL UP, or I would be very depressed now.

    Tracking is off OR parasites are grabbing our sales. My Impressions/clicks have remained steady

    My sales were just like yours from Sept. 28 - Oct. 8, then they went back up to normal. I contacted CJ, but because sales were trickling in, they said everything was working properly.

    I doubt that as I've never had a ten day dry period like that. I'm tired of compaining to CY here about it here anymore - it does no good.

    Same here. I cannot ever remember not having a single sale in a day thru CJ, but it happened twice this month. CJ and its parasite buddies are going to end up putting some of us out of business if they are not careful.

    2 months ago, I was at 1 sale per 55 clicks with pretty good traffic.

    last month 1 in 200 with my traffic just killed by a bad google update.

    This month, twice as much traffic as I have ever had thanks to a GREAT google update. (sorry those with bad updates, mine rocked)
    So how are my sales?
    1 per 1500+ clicks. Many targeted items, and nothing changed except I'm getting more traffic.

    ahem - I am not upset. Desperate, frustrated, livid, furious and depressed but not upset. Waaaaaaaaay beyond upset. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img]
    I will figure this out or die when my wife kills me. thanks for letting me vent

    Game on!!!!

    I've a similar story to Popdawg. Not quite so bad conversion but it is getting worse.
    So far this month:
    I have smashed last months total at Linkshare
    i have beaten last months total at Befree
    I have beaten last months total at Performics
    Private programs are better so far than start of last month.

    At CJ, if things go on I am likely to make 50% of my September total.

    Traffic has soared this month at my main CJ site (around 50% higher than September - which was my best month ever at CJ). Clickthroughs are higher - sales have been crap. I would like to think it is the pre-Christmas rush lull, but with other networks doing so well, I am afraid the Christmas rush has already begun without CJ.

    I'm sending CJ merchants the same quantity and quality of traffic I have been doing for several months.
    But this month looks like being my best ever.

    If things continue as they have started I'll earn $5,000 in the month, compared to my best previous total of $3,700.

    Most of my commission comes from UK merchants - maybe economic conditions in the UK are better, so people are spending more.

    Maybe the parasites are not covering UK merchants yet? Must get that .co.uk domain I ordered last week working for me.

    Right now LS and BeFree are wiping the floor with CJ on both clicks per impression and conversions per clicks. I hope that CJ hasn't decided to go to the dark side and simply feed our traffic into the mouths of the parasites.

    I'm seeing the same thing! Sales are down about 70% on CJ and up on both LS and PF. I send about 250-300 clicks per day and typically have 3-6 conversions per day. This month, I have gone as many as 5 days without a sale! Traffic has gone up if anything.

    What's wrong!?

    Thanks LS, BeFree & Performics
