In this video I talk about a few things that cause me not to like an advertising site.
While looking for Luke today in the scavenger hunt I joined a traffic exchange that I did not belong to. The name of this site is not important but the fact that it limits what you can advertise is the main thing.
When I tried to enter my tracking link into the Sites section of the TE it said that "This Domain is Banned". How do you track your results if the tracking site is banned?
The fact that a tracking link is banned makes me think the quality of traffic is in question. If the owner doesn't want me tracking my results then why would I consider using this site?
After not allowing me not to use my tracking link I tried to use an affiliate link that has a video and capture form that builds my list. After telling me the site is waiting for approval from the owner/admin I go ahead and surf the sites to find Luke.
After I found Luke and completed the full scavenger hunt I go to look at my email and what do I find? The LFM exchange monitor doesn't like that my site has a I-frame and I can't use it either.
I'm not sure what LFM has against I-frames but I see this as a problem when there are many pages out there that use them for imbedding videos.
Not being able to use I-frames does bother me but it is not a deal breaker. Not allowing my tracking link really bothers me though, because I want to see what kind of results this site has to offer.
I will end my rant here and you can see below the sites I surfed for the scavenger hunt today to find Luke.
This is an image of the lead capture page I have been using, I really need to add a video to the page and to the Thank You Page.
Below are my tracking stats for the lead capture page I have been using. I have not tried to tweak this page for better conversions so I do not blame the TE's for any results I have been getting.
