amazon clicks not registering in amazon affiliates

I have been really pleased that on my module clicks lists it's showing over 50 clicks in the past 7 days. However, on my amazon affiliates page I am seeing only 3 clicks. I know not to expect it to be that exact, but 50 to 3 is kinda out of whack, no?

Since my adsense page views is still at 30, where it was a week ago, I am wondering if perhaps the amazon clicks thing might be related to the adsense lack of registering clicks.

Anyone else seeing the same thing?

It would be a shame for me to lose credits if there are sales this week given the unusually high click activity on my account.

what if the clicks don't register on amazon if the user doesn't stay there a certain amount of time (i.e. 10 seconds) considering it a bounce rate? if that were the case then accidental clicks on amazon ads would be instantly hitting the back button and bouncing back to your article but on wizzley registers regardless of anything but just getting clicked... (a theory)...

Another scenario could be that they have already picked up somebody's Amazon cookie from another article. So, whilst they do click through (again) on your module, their visit is credited to somebody else. SY

I think Amazon clicks might only update once a day, no proof of that but from looking at mine in the past it looked as if they did. In the past I have clicked the 'more' button on the stats here to see which items were being clicked on. I am not sure if that is any help to this post or not.

Yes,they only update once a day.  But, the cookie stuff, I thought the latest one holds good and not the first.

WELL, if THAT'S the case, then let me say;

"Not yet - go to her, and him, and her. . . .  Ahhhh, NOW you can come to me."

 

Actually, I have noticed that amazon data lags a day behind. However, I am talking about what I have been seeing over this whole past week and not just yesterday.

Brandon, that is what I had thought I had read a while ago. I also thought that 'cookie claim' had something to do with if they put an item in the purchase basket this extended the 'life span of your claim on the cookie' but terms may have changed since I read them.

I show a ton of clicks on wizzley this week. NONE are showing on Adsense and only 23 on Amazon. I'm puzzled too.
