Do I have this right?

This for the Destination URL. I have to have something wrong. I've sent 1500 visitors to the merchant in the last week with not one sale. It's a children's item and I did ok with them last year. Last year traffic converted reasonably well but this year nothing. Per CJ EPC figures I should be making $50.00 to $60.00 daily easily.

Do I at least have this part right? The destination url?

Thanks.

You might be buying the wrong keywords.

I have mixed results when sending traffic to CJ merchants. I know my conversion rate for one merchant will shift from 0% a day to 25% conversion rate, based on load times of their servers. Which is a variable far out of my reach. It is crap that I have to deal with it, but overall I still make money from the merchant, so I cannot complain too much.

My suggestion to you is to:
- test your links
- Re-evaluate your keyword choices
- Maybe mention the price in the ad copy? (pre-qualify the users)
- Add SID's to each keyword (to track individual performance)
- Make sure you are not in the content network on AdWords
- Consider this item/merchant as a bust, and find a new one.

Thanks for the guidance. The link works in that if I paste it into my browser then it redirects to the merchant's site. I'm just not 100% sure CJ would credit me with any sale. However, I'm sure enough that it's an effective link that around the time you posted I went ahead and switched to Merchant B.

Smaller sales/commissions With Merchant B but 10% of larger theoretical sales is not quite as good as 5% of some [smaller] actually completed sales from Merchant B. I already had a few small sales from B but now I'm attempting to direct the bulk of my daily traffic to this Merchant B. We'll see what happens. Maybe B can convert my traffic.

I double checked and the content network was already turned off but appreciate the reminder.

Are the clicks being shown in the CJ reports? That would prove that the links are tracking.
