Emails from users

 1:52 am on Nov 28, 2005 (gmt 0)

We are a seasoned adsense provider that runs many sites that are relatively successful, but earlier in the month we "broadend our horizons" with YPN. ;-)

Yesterday and today we received three emails from users telling me "your links don't work". So after 8+ emails back and forth with them, we finally figured out that they are talking about my YPN links.

So, knowing that clicks from myself are not allowed, how can one test this? Two of those visitors/users that were talking about this have sent me screen captures of what is happening and it's the regular "this page cannot be displayed" page from internet explorer.

Anyone else hearing from vistors from your site not showing links? We have nice traffic on this site, but I am relatively NEW to YPN so I have no stats to compare whether or not the clicks are counting or not. The only thing I can do to test this would be to CLICK on them but don't wanna for fear of deletion. The only thing that is correlatetd is that I figured out that the 3 people were on DIALUP and not broadband.

Anyone else seeing things like these?

Maybe it is blocked for non-us traffic?

I had already thought that, but they were all in the US. When they contscted us, I asked them many questions.

What else could it be?

That is strange. Maybe an explanation for the low ctr.

Maybe their IP is on the blacklist of spammers?

Oh yeah, that could it. Strange

Blacklist of Spammers? Interesting. Garbage In. Garbage Out.

Yep ebuilder, Webmasterworld seems to have something like that as well. A few days ago I got a message saying my IP Addy is spammy and required me to login again although I normally don't have to (dialup, so lots of people use one IP in a day). I have also had problems with other websites and services due to this.
