When will my campaign start?
We understand that a quick start time is essential to the success of your business. We employ a dedicated team to review and start your campaigns in a timely manner. When we receive an order, is rigorously scanned and put through a 10 point fraud check. This fraud check ensures that we maintain the highest quality network and protects our customers from potential fraud that may affect them down the line. Because of this, the approval process can be slow at times. Your account will usually approve in a few hours time, but no longer than one business day unless our system has detected a problem with the account. We typically schedule account activations at 8am and 4pm CST M-F. We also process approvals at 8 AM CST on Saturdays. Orders containing adult content may be delayed due to the simple fact that not all members of our approval staff have agreed to view such material. We allow our staff to make these decisions on an individual basis. If an issue arises on one of your accounts a member of our approval staff will contact you via the e-mail address you provided when your account was created.
What is geotargeting?
Geotargeting allows us to target users from a specific country of origin. While we can target most countries, the volume for specialized country is very little. For this reason we offer US, Canada, Australia, UK and a few others. Currently over 80% of our network is US Based. 10% Canada, 6% UK 2% Australia, and the rest is made up of over 20 other countries.
How do you determine geotargeting?
We use the latest ip databases provided by Arin.net to establish what country of origin the users ip is from. This method is over 99% accurate in determining country.
What is your geotargeting accuracy?
Our geo targeting options are around 95% accurate. This is due to a few factors. The internet ip systems are managed by ARIN.net. Each day this company allocates ips from one country to another depending on demand. An ip address that once belonged to the UK can be moved to France overnight. In an effort to keep up with the constant changes, our network updates the ip records on our database once per week. If the service that is being used to track geotargeting by the customer is only update once per month or per quarter (3 months) While our tracking is very accurate, their reporting will not be. It is impossible for anyone to guarantee 100% for this matter but we do strive to maintain around a 99% accuracy with most tracking companies.
What methods do you recommend for tracking?
Our servers track visitors in real time as they pass through our network. Each time a visitor lands on your website for more than 20 seconds we count this as 1 visitor and deduct it from your account.
One method we highly recommend is to use a Goo.gl redirect for your campaigns. You would enter the your landing page link into Goo.gl, and when Goo.gl gives you your unique redirect link, you would enter that into the system. This creates a common 3rd party report showing numbers. If you order 5000 visitors and Goo.gl shows 4000 visitors we will make up the difference until Goo.gl reflects exactly what you have purchased. It is important to note that all Goo.gl must be fresh and have a starting visitor count of less than 10. Using an old account will result in distorted numbers.
Please note that while we will do our best to deliver the Goo.gl matches within the time frame selected, we can not guarantee the time frames 100% due to resets that take place on a daily basis. Should you choose not to use the above recommended methods, we advise you to use some type of image based statcounter. This would be such counters as those provided by statcounter.com and hitstats.com
Another service we recommend is StatCounter, which is fairly easy to set up, and has a rich reporting system that can be easily implemented on many different platforms including WordPress, Blogger, Joomla, and MS Frontpage.
WE DO NOT ACCEPT GOOGLE ANALYTICS AS PROOF OF DELIVERY.
Everyone automatically assumes because it is Google, it is good. Google Analytics is one of the worst tracking systems developed for tracking redirect traffic. Time and time again this tracking simply causes problems with any type of redirect traffic. The main reason being, is that Google Analytics can not read 3rd party cookies. This makes it impossible to read a cookie set through our redirect and tracking scripts which make the user invisible to Google Analytics.
Do you accept bit.ly as a means of tracking?
When placed head to head with other tracking services like Goo.gl, Bit.ly performs 20% less efficiently. For this reason if you choose not to use Goo.gl we can only guarantee up to 80% on Bit.ly URLs. There is one exception in which if you use bit.ly to track UK campaigns, we will guarantee them at 100% but only for UK campaigns.
Where does your traffic come from?
Our network owns and operates many well-known internet websites. Our current portfolio consist of over 8500 websites internet wide, including 3 established search engines, 2 internet service providers, movie sites, social networking sites, online gaming sites, and a well known domain registrar which currently hosts over 9700 ad supported websites (expired domain traffic). Our network currently consists of 60% pop-under traffic, 30% interstitial traffic and 10% expired domain traffic.
Why are my visits all coming from the same IP?
Chances are, you are looking at the referral ip instead of the actual visitor ip. The referral ips will remain mostly the same as these are the ips of the adservers that are redirecting the traffic to your site. These however do not reflect the ip addresses of the actual visitors to the customers site.
What is Alexa Traffic?
Alexa traffic is traffic specifically designed to help an individual user increase their traffic ranking with Alexa.com over a period of time. Each visitor deliver through this methods has the alexa toolbar installed on their computer allowing each visitor to count in the Alexa system and helping to raise the ranking for the promoted site. On average promotion can take up to a few weeks before showing any signs of increased rank. This largely depends on the users current Alexa ranking.
Is your traffic Adsense safe?
Google provides a detailed list of instances that are not accepted by the AdSense program. According to Google’s TOS our service is in 100% compliance with their TOS and therefore deemed to be AdSense safe.
How much will an Alexa rank increase with visitors?
Alexa ranks depend on many different factors. First it is advised that before starting any Alexa service that you insure your site is already indexed by the program and given a basic rank. Since Alexa ranks are based on 3 month averages, your site may see less increase if it is not at least 3 months old. Alexa averages are also based on page views, backlinks and organic traffic from search engines. Sending 10,000 visitors per day to a site without taking any steps to insure other requirements have been made, may not cause any difference in your rank. We can not guarantee, speculate or provide estimates for any rank in conjunction with use of our Alexa traffic. We do guarantee that each visitor to the Alexa site will have the toolbar installed and be from the country of the requested geotarget. We can not guarantee or offer any insight into anything beyond this.
What is the maximum number of days a campaign can run?
While we prefer campaigns to run no longer than 30 days, you can extend a campaign out for as long as 365 days or 1 year.
Does your traffic increase Youtube views?
The simple answer is no. Youtube has gone to great lengths to discourage people from using traffic (mass visitor) services from increasing YouTube views. Everytime a video plays it costs YouTube money for bandwidth and the like. There are currently no providers out there that can truly provide this service.
What are your adult traffic guidelines?
While we welcome Adult orders of any kind please note that we will not accept the following into our adult network.
Orders that contain sound.
Orders that contain frame breakers.
Orders that contain a java exit pop / exit loop (except worldwide).
Orders that depict underage persons or any other type of illegal content.
Please note that each country has its’ own laws governing pornographic material. Because of this geotargeting may be limited to exclude certain countries and regions.
