Referral's link over history
Posted: Tuesday, October 08, 2019 8:53:41 PM
I never knew I could actually see my referral link over history.
I went over it today and was surprised to see that I have had referral link click every day without fail from 10 to 150+ a day for quite a few years now.
I'm surprised to see this because in all this time I have only been credited for 1 referral sale.
Is this normal? Are these numbers low? I'm not really sure how they compare. If they are good, have I been doing something wrong?

Unfortunately linkovers are right up there with zRank in the mystery factor.

It’s terrible to think that the huge boards I have filled with affiliate links on different subjects and over 6000 followers mean nothing. 😞 wasting my time. Ugh

I know, and maybe someone else gets more meaning out of it than I do. But to me it is just a meaningless number that tells me nothing helpful if it is even accurate. Sorry to say!

So I read on a forum post from years ago that you can expect 1 referral sale for every 1,000 linkovers...

Now, about a month ago, many of us had huge spikes in our linkovers. This appeared to be coming from pinterest bots. I can say that because P is where 99% of my referral links are posted.

With that knowledge, we now know that a certain percentage of our linkovers are from bots. What that percentage is... is unknown...

How many other social sites or search engines create a "linkover" hit?? Again, unknown.

For me personally, I got back into Z about a year ago. Created several different P accounts about 6 months ago. I am getting referrals. Not a ton. But they are coming in. And I am doing better than 1 in 1,000.

But I have no clear advice to guide you on the linkover stats value. It is something I check daily. My only hope is that I see them increasing over time.

That's my 2 cents, for what its worth.

I think also that just because the linkover stats here at Z are meaningless doesn't mean your Pinterest boards are a waste of time.

I have been getting referrals from my Pinterest boards using the Nifty tools that Highton Ridley offers in Zazzle Tools forum.

I get more helpful data from the actual Pinterest analytics and my tracking codes and I don't even pay attention to the Zazzle linkover count.
