I’m working on a few other money making methods with CL and will be updating this page periodically with results.
This is probably a topic not many have touched on, but having worked with CPA offers for over a year now I’ve noticed a trend. Whenever we start off with a new CPA offer the conversion rates are terrific. We have a CPA offer that has been converting as high as 30%. The honeymoon is however over and the trend has set in. We are now nose diving to 10% conversions rates.
Now I’m not going to accuse anyone of fraud or pulling some kind of shenanigans, but I’m betting folks that pay out on some CPA offers don’t like paying out those commissions. How hard is it to learn the IP address of a particular affiliate sending traffic and then start pulling some black hat magic to capture the customer information without paying the affiliate on the conversion? I’ll bet donuts to dollars this happens, but affiliates are too busy to figure it out or inquire.

For those that might be thinking our drop in conversions are due to spikes in traffic or visitors, all of our CPA offers are on the back-end of our product / service thank you page(s). It’s always a percentage of our exit traffic. So for an exit page offer to convert at 25%+ over a 30 day period and then tank to 10% the following month consistently tells me that someone is up to something.
Getting ready to call my Yahoo marketing rep. Yahoo is again showing business customers that they may not be able to keep up and compete with Google Adwords marketing.
Last week Yahoo marketing / PPC reporting starting running behind. As of this writing, Yahoo conversion reports are off by over three days. My particular report shows 4/10/09 10:45AM. It is now 4/13/09 7:30PM CST.
Again, this is my major complaint and it should also be the major complaint of all Yahoo business customers. How can a business know whether it is making money, conversions, or loosing money if Yahoo conversion reporting is not working or off by three days? If companies loose money during the days when Yahoo reporting is off, will Yahoo reimburse companies if they loose money while reporting is off?
