Namedrive clickthrough rate yesterday

Did anybody else notice an abnormally low clickthrough rate at ND yesterday?

Strange thing is that my traffic was higher than ever, but the CTR was maybe half of what it normally is across many languages.

Re: Namedrive clickthrough rate yesterday

My clickthrough rate yesterday was not unusual. I have noticed strange things like what you have mentioned in the past however. I have had days of normal traffic but non-existant clicks.

One thing that I started noticing around October of last year were strings of days where the revenue was suddenly very similar from day to day for a week or two at a time. Revenue has always been rather spikey and this seemed strange. It seemed that the data was being played with which then makes me doubt the accuracy of all the other data.

The other thing that bugs me is 0 cent clicks. A click should never under any circumstances pay 0. Somebody got paid for that click but it wasn't me and I am the one that generated it. I don't care if the parking company was paid nothing for it. From a purely psychological point of view it is a much better business practice to pay me 1 cent and retain my good will than it is to pay me 0 and leave me feeling ripped off.

I am hopeful for Parkingminisite since their system is at least trackable with Google analytics. The fact that they showed up here with a virus infested site to begin with really got them off to a bad start with me so I will wait and see how that works out before moving my domains there.

As a matter of interest I looked up a few of my domains on Google's keyword tool .. $9 plus was the answer for CPC on one particular domain .. My average PPC at ND is $1.14 .. hmm
