Ad-minister Reports Inaccurate Click and Impression Stats (6 posts)

    Hi there. I've got the ad-minister plugin installed on WordPress and each ad I have was getting like 10-20 clicks a day so I bragged to my advertisers, who all told me that I they were only seeing about 1-4 clicks a day on their end. What could be the cause of the problem here?

    Same people click on several ads, but usually one person can only earn you one paid click a day or something like this.

    I'm having a similar problem with impressions, and wonder if it may be to do with bots or spiders crawling the site and activating the link (or in my case, loading the advert image).

    I think the gap is too large in my case for it to be spiders.

    I'm having the same problem.

    By my calculation the click-through rate reported via ad-minister is approx 10-15x what it should be. As my links are for affiliate sites I can check on the affiliate platform the number of referalls they say I'm sending through. They're nowhere near what ad-minister is reporting.

    To test, I've clicked several banners then refreshed the stats page on the affiliate platform the click is counted so I know that part it working okay. Which just leaves ad-minister counting clicks that aren't clicks. I'd be surprised if there are that many bots on my page?

    I've got the same issue. Was excited to see that many clicks on a banner ad, but the store login didn't show as many. Still a very nice plugin!
