Alright so I'm thinking there is a difference in how PPD's and CPA networks count impressions and clicks.

On Adworkmedia's link locker it shows 12 impressions for 2 full days of featuring, on a small niche.
On Adshift's link locker it shows 0 impressions for 1 day of featuring, on a small niche.
On Sharecash's link locker it shows 50 impressions for half a day of featuring, on a small niche.

What's I'm failing to understand is why this happens. Why are the 2 CPA sites lower then the one PPD site? I suspect that the CPA sites are shaving clicks/impressions, or Sharecash is just raising them. Of course this is assuming they are all counted the same way.
The way being that, an impression is counted when a user lands on your locker.

This may mean that Sharecash is counting every user that lands on the page of the link locker's url (the one that redirects the traffic to the locker). While the CPA networks are only tracking widget/locker impressions.

Anyways if anyone could help me speculate/explain exactly how the impressions are calculated that would be great. It makes it seem like there's so much more success with Sharecash then Adwork or Adshift.

The differences between the CPA networks are negligible given how small the stats are. However, there is a large difference when comparing both of them to ShareCash.

AWM has come forward and begun to discuss that they have been reducing clicks but I cannot tell you officially what is happening with your numbers. They have also said they will stop doing so if that makes things any better.

I suggest that you split test a few different CPA networks. There are a few link lockers out there and you can go see how things workout with them. I highly suggest that. AWM and AdShift are still somewhat new so they may simply be having bugs as well.

ShareCash would not increase impressions either, doing so only hurts their own EPC.
