I've been testing a variety of safelists lately using Viralurl.com and have noticed some of the newer popular safelists are not providing accurate stats on their mailers. According to my testing, they aren't generating any clicks whatsoever. When I check my mailing history within their sites, they show high CTRs. Although disappointing, this just reminded me the importance of testing all traffic sources to prevent wasting time and money on sites that provide no results. Have you had a similar experience when testing safelists?

Thanks! for reminder. Always great to do our own trackings to make sure we are advertising on the right sources.

Using external trackers are very important. They help you determine the frauds from the real deal. some of these "safelists" have been known to generate fake click results. But the bottom line is where are the sales?

Yes, more important than clicks, are the actual results.  B)

I am tracking all my traffic through Google Analytics in real time.

I saw coming a lot of traffic from diverse sources, but the results in sales are close to zero.

I tried a large variety of ads, offers, affiliate links, and I am still disappointed.

I the near future, I'll insist more to build my lists, instead of get sales in mailers and TEs.

This serves well as a reminder to test your traffic source. Thanks. Can't say that I have.

The results are important. I will have to change my mode of operating this year and test my safelists. Thank you for the headsup.

I have had times with 2000 clicks and 2 signups an other times 100 clicks and 40 signups. 

Tracking is important, you need to know what works best to the offer your have in hand. 

 

Also free vs paid advertising can make a huge difference, so here, one does need to know if the spendings are worth the buck ;)

 

Cheers

Yeah you need to keep testing and keep tracking. In time you will decide which safelists, mailers work best for your offers.

This pic illustrates the results (in general) the hits I got from my top referring sources in the past few days from my advertising efforts. Mailers, Safelist and TE´s.

 

The tracker used is my personal script...

 

It continues below with another 50 sources but I thought I would just share this ones.

Also test your tracker in all browsers as ViralURL seldom loads in browsers using FireFox. I get links that won't load all the time using that program, Leads Leap is far better for a free program and paid services I have heard good reports on Click Track Profit.
