From your wording, I'm not certain what your asking, but I believe that you registered a domain name and set it up with domain forwarding to your Clickbank hop link. When you set a forwarding at Godaddy, they give you a choice of having the actual link show or having your domain name show when the visitor arrives at Clickbank (or wherever). My guess is you set it up not to show your hop link in the address bar, thus you do not see it. If this is what you did, you will still receive your commission from an purchase at target site. The reason people often set up Clickbank links this way is to prevent hop link hijacking. I'm not sure how that's done, but apparently it can be.

Hi Jerry,

I'm confused as well.

ClickBank doesn't provide stats, outside of the number of sales - so how are you "not" seeing the click-through's at ClickBank?

Actually, Lynn, CB has some new analytics and statistics including that include hop counts, earnings per hop, hops per corder, impressions counts and all kinds of stuff that just confuses the bejeezes out of me!

I'm not sure what the OP was asking, but I suspect that his hop links are not set up properly. If they were, the hop would show on these CB analytics when he used it himself from his webpage.

While I'm doing that, back to the question -

Click on your own link. Get to the clickbank checkout page. Scroll all the way to the bottom. It will say [affiliate=none] OR it will say YOUR username instead of "none". If it says your username, your link is working/tracking. If it does not, you need to fix it.

Sorry - I didn't mean to sound like a smart a$$. I just figured that you would not have been over to CB in quite awhile (I wish I never had gone over there - it just depressed me when I started to wonder if selling some of those products was the only way to make money as an affiliate! In 3 days over here, I've learned better. Thanks.)

No, I'm glad you told me LOL. How could I miss that tiny little new button?! :rolleyes:

I've been working with ClickBank so long without stats, it never occurred to me to check for them. I just cash the checks :p

Sorry for the confusion. Under reports in clickbank there is a section that says analytics.There it shows you the product and how many hop counts you have as well have had as well as hops per order form impressions.It shows sales as well.Iwasn't see the hop count that I new were being sent there.

Double check to make sure your link is tracking as outlined above. Let us know - and we'll go from there.

I check the link to make sure it was showing my ID. I email clickbank but haven't heard from them yet.I just checked my account and now they are showing up .
Thanks for all of your responses

Thanks Lynn didn't thing anyone was on this late.
They must be having trouble again with analytics.
Doing some more research and then got to go to bed
Thanks again

Jerry, it sounds like one of two things might have happened in your case. Either ClickBank's analytics were down when you checked. Or no one had yet clicked on your link earlier, so there were no analytics to report.
