What are the different types of traffic you offer?
We offer 3 types of traffic currently. Targeted Traffic – This is traffic that can be both categories targeted and geo-targeted. The category targeting can be changed at any time during the campaign. Alexa Traffic – This is traffic that is exposed only to surfers who have the Alexa Toolbar installed on their computer. The traffic will help to increase a website overall Alexa ranking. Adult Traffic (Mature) – Mature traffic or Adult traffic is geared towards sites that fall into the realm of ‘If you don’t want your kids seeing it, it goes here’.
What type of sites are accepted?
We maintain various networks in order to deliver traffic based on the advertiser’s websites make up. The highest quality network is our premium network. The premium network is reserved for websites that do not contain any visitor annoyances. These are websites that are free from sound, videos that play automatically, and any type of browser modification such as pop-ups and frame breakers. This is our fastest network with the widest reach. The next network is our sound network. These are reserved for websites that contain sound, music or video that plays automatically. WWebsitesin this network may not contain any type of browser modification such as Java pop-ups or frame breakers. This network is available to most mainstream countries. Traffic delivery is slower than our premium network. For this reason, we recommend that advertisers when at all possible provide alternative sites that do not contain sound so that they may run on the premium network. Your customer should also be made aware that because of sound their orders may be delivered in a slower manner than anticipated. Many of our publishers have opted out from serving ads with sound due to the annoyance it causes their visitor base. Our last network is reserved for those sites that either break out of our tracking frame or contain a Java pop up. These sites are restricted to a maximum of 500 visitors per day. They may also only target a worldwide audience. These types of sites cannot be targeted to a specific country. Please note that while we will alert you if your order is in violation and must go in this network. We have not received a response from you within three business days we will automatically run the advertisement through a worldwide market regardless of what geo-targeting is selected. Each order is placed through our network is given a fraud rating. This rating is designed to detect possible issues with an order that may result in some sort of fraudulent activity such as phishing or passing malicious viruses or malware. Our staff is well trained in detecting the probability that a website will turn fraudulent. We have maintained a success rate of over 99% over the last six years. If we feel that a site will turn fraudulent during a campaign. We reserve the right to reject the order and inform you of our findings.
When will my order start?
Our automated approval system is set to scan and start your orders 24/7/365 with an average wait time of around 5 minutes from activation. In some instances, if your order does not pass our automated approval filters and requires inspection by one of our approval staff, this can increase wait times.

Will the 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. Every time a video plays it costs YouTube money for bandwidth and the like. here are currently no providers out there that can truly provide this service. We are looking into some methods to help move this along, however.
Can I send traffic to my YouTube video?
While we allow YouTube links, we do not guarantee how many views will be counted by YouTube if any. YouTube has gone to great lengths to discourage the use of traffic generation services to falsely inflate views.
What are the benefits of the Social Traffic?
Social Traffic brings many benefits, some include:
- All Social Media Visitors are IP Unique, fully trackable and engaged.
- 100% trackable using Google Analytics and other popular tracking systems. Regardless of what you use to track your visitors, we have you covered.
- 100% verifiable in Webmaster Tools.100% Google AdSense friendly.
- 100% Google AdSense friendly. Since these visitors come directly from high traffic social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, you can rest assured your AdSense ads are safe.
- Pop-ups, exit pops, frame breaker’s, video and sound are ALL allowed. With this traffic, anything goes. With the exception of download prompts and viruses of course.
- Very low bounce rates (20% or less). Social Media visitors are active surfers by nature. Many advertisers are seeing bounce rates near 0%!
- Social Visitors stay longer. Tired of views that only last a little while? Social Visitors stay on the site 3x longer than most other types of surfers.
What is geo-targeting?
Geo-targeting allows us to target users from a specific country of origin. While we can target most countries, the volume for the specialized country is very little. For this reason we off 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 geo-targeting?
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 are the different geo-targetted locations offered?
United States USA – Eastern USA – Central USA – Mountain USA – Pacific Canada North America Worldwide United Kingdom South America Australia China India Belgium Germany European Union Spain Asia Middle Eastern Mexico Italy Africa Philippines Singapore Malaysia Thailand Netherlands Puerto Rico France Sweden New Zealand Portugal Japan Greece Brazil Indonesia Vietnam Kuwait Estonia Panama Brunei Peru Romania Norway Denmark Poland Romania Switzerland If you would like to have additional countries added to the system, please submit a support ticket for review. We offer traffic from over 200 countries but currently only list the top ones.
Do you prevent adfoc.us or adf.ly links in your network?
The short answer is no. These websites are advertising networks that alternate various types of content through their links. Because of our inability to determine what specific sites are being passed through our network, we have chosen not to accept them at this time. There have been many instances in the past where these networks were passing viruses and malicious software to our network to our publisher’s users. in addition, these networks violate our frame breaking terms.
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 advertiser’s website for more than 20 seconds we count this as 1 visitor and deduct it from your account One method we highly recommend to use is a Goo.gl ad tracker. This allows you to view a common 3rd party report showing numbers. If you order 10,000 visitors and Goo.gl shows 8000 visitors we will make up the difference until Goo.gl reflects exactly the number you purchased. Goo.gl is very reliable and if the site being advertised is down or overloaded the Goo.gl URL is still being tracked. 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, then we recommend using some type of image-based stats counter. This would be such counters as those provided by statcounter.com
and hitstats.com WE DO NOT ACCEPT GOOGLE ANALYTICS AS PROOF OF DELIVERY.
Everyone automatically assumes because it is Google, it is good. Google Analytics (GA) 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 that GA cannot 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 GA. For this reason, we strongly advise you steer clear of using GA as your method of tracking.
Where does your traffic come from?
Our network owns and operates many well-known internet websites. Our current portfolio consists 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.
What is premium network traffic?
Premium simply means that your link will be placed in the best possible site rotation. In order to qualify for premium status, your site may not contain any of the following.
- Frame breakers or busters
- Sound of any kind
- Pops of any kind
- Browser altering codes
- Download / exit prompts
What type of report will I have access to?
Once your order has been approved, you will be provided with aStats Center
account. We will also set up a goo.gl link with Google, which will allow clients to get more detailed tracking information. If you wish to install a script for tracking on your website, we recommend usingwww.statcounter.com
. We do not recommend using Google Analytics, Awstats, and other similar 3rd party scripts. They are not accurate with our delivery method. Below is an example of a goo.gl report which we provide at no additional charge.
What if the link has sound?
While we welcome sound ads, we can not guarantee volumes for sound related ads. Many companies that serve ads with us simply do not want their visitors to be annoyed with sound. For this reason, most campaigns will run slow. At times if you have a very non-mainstream country site such as Iran, sound ads may not run at all.
What is a Java pop-up?
A java pop-up is any pop that happens, that prevents a user from leaving a website without requiring them to select Yes or Leave this page. These are annoyances that are not allowed. In the event we see this, your advertiser’s site will be run on a worldwide raw network. There is no way around this.
What is Alexa traffic?
Alexa traffic is traffic specifically designed to help an individual site 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.
Why is my Alexa traffic slow?
Since Alexa traffic is limited to only those visitors that have the toolbar installed, delivery can be much slower. If you notice that your account is getting less than 25-50 visitors per day, it may have been assigned to a slow feed. It is recommended at that point that you open a support ticket for investigation.
What are the guidelines for adult related sites?
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.
What are the general order guidelines?
Sites from other countries such as Russia .ru, Germany .de, and India .in must target the country they originate in. Due to high rates of virus infections, these countries will be forbidden to market to the US. We will no longer accept URLs ending in .co.cc or .tk, of the 150 placed over the last year 100% were infections and fraudulent. We will not allow invasive 3rd party ad company to piggyback on our network. These include adf.ly, adfoc.us, and a few others. We will notify you if there is a piggyback problem. We reserve the right to automatically refund these type of orders without notification. Sites that contain Java pops can only run in our Raw, Run of Network, Worldwide market and will be limited to a 1000 daily cap. A Java pop is an annoyance that prevents a user from leaving the website without clicking on some type of window. It is highly advised that you consult your customers beforehand and request a link that does not contain the annoyance. The limited cap DOES NOT guarantee that the cap will be reached. The amount of traffic delivered could be as low as single digits. All adult-related websites (toys, erotic dating) must be run on the mature network. If your site contains nudity or provocative materials, it must be assigned to the mature network. Adult related ads may not contain any type of sound or any type of pop or script that stops a window from being closed directly. Adult ads that violate our terms will be automatically refunded back to inventory. While we gladly welcome sound ads, please note the following:
- Sound ads must run on a different network and traffic will be drastically slower at times as only 10% of our network sites run sound ads.Ads containing sound may only run in their respective language geotarget or Worldwide market. Spanish sound ads can only run in predominate Spanish speaking
- Ads containing sound may only run in their respective language geotarget or Worldwide market. Spanish sound ads can only run in predominate Spanish speaking geo-targets.
Sites that contain no content or contain errors will not be started. If the issue has not been resolved within 72 hours, the orders will be refunded. You may set up this order again for reapproval. Sites that break out of our tracking frames, will be set to receive a maximum of 100 visitors or less per day and will target a worldwide audience. This does not guarantee that 100 will be reached and may be in the single digits. All goo.gl links must be fresh. Previously used links or this will result in tracking errors that we can not correct.
My Goo.gl report do not match up, what's wrong?
Our advertising team reviews the numbers reported by Goo.gl and makes adjustments to our systems on a daily basis. Please be patient as we are aware of the difference and will correct this in a timely manner.
Is your traffic Google Adsense safe?
Google provides a detailed list of instances that are not accepted by the AdSense program. According to Google’s Adsense Terms of Service, our service is in 100% compliance with their Term’s of Service and therefore deemed to be AdSense safe.
Does your traffic show in Google Analytics?
Google Analytics only reads visits that use a first party cookie. Our system sets 3rd party cookies due to our tracking features, that Google Analytics can not read. While Google Analytics will pick up a few visitors, it is not the preferred method. We advise all customers to us the Goo.gl tracking service to ensure accuracy.
Why is my traffic coming from the same IP address?
If your see visits that are coming from the same IP, chances are you are looking at the referral IP instead of the actual visitor IP. The referral IP will remain mostly the same as these are the IPs of the ad servers that are redirecting the traffic to your site. However, they do not reflect the IP addresses of the actual visitors to your site.
What is the maximum amount of traffic you can deliver in one day?
Our system is capable of delivering millions of visitors per day. However how many a specific campaign can receive in a day is based on a number of factors.
- What is the geotarget of the order?
- What is the interest target of the order?
- Is the order free from sound?
- Does the order contain any type of popup or exit window?
- Does the site contain a redirect of any type?
Since each order is dynamic based on these questions, you would be best suited to open a support ticket which should include the website address. This will help us best answer these questions more accurately.
Why do I see //// for my // order?
If you have recently submitted a URL that contains https you will notice that in your backend, it will appear as //https. This is simply a security precaution when the URL is printed in the admin. The URL is correct in the system, however.
When do you reset goo.gl numbers to match?
It depends greatly. We try to review orders on a daily basis. At any given time we have between 7000-10000 active Goo.gl URLs. These are managed on a daily basis outside of weekends. When a campaign has been completed according to our system it becomes a little more complicated. We have a dedicated team that handles the orders once they are completed by our system and have not yet been checked and their stats certified. However, this number can range as high as 25,000 accounts on any given day. Please be patient as we work to get these updated.
Do you offer mobile traffic?
Yes. Mobile Traffic is available.
