Hey Warriors,
Just started my very first cpa campaign on 7search and about a hour later I checked my cpa network reports and saw 4 other campaigns on my reports. Which I didn't even added.

Let me know what I'm doing wrong here.

Thanks,
2Dth

    You might be sending traffic to a country specific offer but you're not geo targeting in 7search.

    I imagine they're just showing clicks right? If you've been testing your affiliate link for any other campaigns, the clicks would show up in the stats. I've even had clicks show up just from previewing an offer's landing page. It's nothing to worry about.

    Now if your getting conversions for offers that you're not promoting, you need to let me know what CPA network you're using

      I checked and you guys were right. It was set to the whole country when the offer was only for u.s.a. I fixed it now but I guess I'll have to let my AM know about it.


      Thanks warriors for fast respond.

    I always tell affiliates when they see anything weird, check geotargeting

    Sounds like you learned a valuable lesson early on!

    How is the campaign doing now after fixing that?

      After fixing it, it seem to be doing so-so got 185 clicks but no conversion (i believe that's the term used for "signing up on the offer" or i might be wrong)

      But then again, I checked my Cpa network its show i had 225 clicks...
      This is confusing me....:confused:

      Or maybe its just the offer/niche that I'm using, or could it be the way i set-up my ad title and description that is making no conversion.

      So much junks running through my mind right now... Its making me want to paid someone to coach me one on one and get thing done the right way.

      Going to relax my mind and walk my dogs.
      Would be great if any of you Warriors could PM me and show me the right path.

      Thanks

        7Search's stats are delayed, that could be why you're seeing more clicks on the network report, which are real time.

        Try split testing the same offer across multiple networks if possible.

    Maybe pause that campaign and start a brand new one with all the right settings to make sure?

    @ChrisBa, Yeah, learned the hard way :p

    @SpeedylikesKj, Just got done reading some of your posts on your blog and i gotta say it help a lot. Also read your thread on "Newbies Tip". Oh and, your Cpa Ppc Guides is just want i need.

    @PPC-Coach, Yeah, i paused the campaign for now til i really fully understand want i'm doing. Thanks if the head-up.

    @mtmjohn, Split-testing sounds like a good plan, but i think i should slow it down for now and try to see what i'm doing wrong with this campaign

    Thanks Warriors
