Namedrive drop off???

I've had a shocking drop in parking stats at Namedrive in the last couple of days?

Clicks had skyrocketed for me Tues/Wed, and I received the highest amount of paying clicks from my IDN's so far. Things were looking good

Then suddenly - bam! Traffic & clicks have virtually disappeared ever since!

Anyone else seeing similar?

I'd been expecting some kind of dip, but my stats make it look like the IDn'ers on this forum are about the only people with their computer's turned on at the moment!

Ed posted about this the other day. The ultra-high clicks were because of a 'bot they've now banned.

Oh, do you mean bots will "click"?

I got a 10% dip on Friday, but clicks are back normal on Saturday. CTR has risen to 24% the past few days from 20% last month. Seems that ad target has improved. Has anyone notice this?

Number of views dropped, but it is more than compensated by the increase in CTR, henceforth, the number of clicks per day actually increased over the previous month.

Yes, a "click" is just a link being followed, after all - it's super-easy to program a bot to follow links.

Well, with my entire portfolio only getting 4 clicks in the last four days - bring back the 'bot, I say

Bots are really dangerous and we might get banned for fraudulent clicks. Google might do an 'adjustment' to void clicks from that bot at the end of the month.

Oh no - I was definately making a 'tounge-in-cheek' joke about bringing back the bot.

Only marginally more funny than the lack of income my sad portfolio is generating!

So, the bot in question was one seeking out predominately Namedrive accounts?
