I have a blog with various affiliate links on and according to commission junction I'm receiving about three times as many clicks as I am impressions - is this a common error in reporting? Surely visitors aren't clicking on the links three times each on average? I'm new to this so perhaps I'm misunderstanding what the statistics are showing me.
Also on a unrelated note do you think it is worth setting up a blog that I have a mild interest in and know doesn't have much competition even though I have no real workable way to make it earn money? Keep in mind I'm new so perhaps I can just use it to 'learn the trade' and get experience on starting a site from scratch etc
Numbers and stats can be misleading in the way they are used and not tell the reality of the situation.
For example, I've seen stats that on Twitter tweets that include images and videos get something like 168% more interaction than tweets that are only text. Don't quote me on the "168%". It's probably not totally accurate, but it's in the ball park.
Not sure if I have hooked something good or bad.
I have managed to find a domain by accident which belongs to someone who has a good decent following, and has done a number of interviews including few links from very authoritative magazines.
Lots of people are walkin like zombie, looking for creatures in their smartphone... we all know it.
Local Companies are buying lures etc... to attract them, hoping they give a glance to their products while waiting for another pokemon...
