Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
So far, I have sent over 230 unique visitors on to various e-commerce sites via the Tradedoubler scheme.
However, according to my reports, not one of these visitors has made me a sale.
I would have hoped to make at least one sale from 230.
Is this the experience of other Tradedoubler users?
Make a test purchase if it's practical for you to do so, it may save you some time/money.
Is there any way of knowing if the tracking is not working without buying a product?
Many thanks - please sticky me if you can't post urls here not sure of the TOS? Obviously I know now to avoid tradedoubler :) :) How good is CJ?
I am disillusioned with adsense as these page views contribute to just over a mere $100 a month.
However, there is no guarantee that you'll get your "pet" traffic to convert. I'd be surpried if a good percentage of your vistor's weren't children, who are not renowned for their spending habits.
Hope this helps!
I work for TradeDoubler UK and felt compelled to address some of the issues raised on this thread.
TradeDoublers tracking and reporting is as good as, if not better than any mainstream US or UK network - and this is from feedback from all publishers I have spoken with.
Accelerator, generally 100 unique visitors sent to an advertiser should convert to one sale/lead. 230 UVs is not enough to assess how well the advertisers are working on your site. If you are unsure how well an advertiser performs before putting them live, Google their name and check both paid and organic listings for the tell tale signs.
Michael, as far as I can gather from the several conversations we have held over the last few weeks you are happy with TradeDoubler, so I am surprised to see your feedback.
If anyone has a query, please feel free to contact me.

On the whole, Tradedoubler is second only to CJ in terms of merchant quality and reliability, and if one's market is Europe then TD are number 1.
So, my apologies if my post gave the impression that TD are not to be trusted. In fairness, I've had similar problems with ALL the networks at some point, and my advice remains unchanged - test purchases are the only way to gain proof of a problem.
