Default Weird Spy View

So I'm running my first campaign on addon using and LP that goes to an email submit. No fanclub, just an older campaign I brought over to see if it would work.

I'm actually getting good traffic at .005 and a 50% CTR. The strange thing is that even though I'm targeting a certain website, the spyview is saying that the referring URLs are random sites that have nothing to do with my target urls. I have no idea why.

But my CTR is 50% it says. I haven't checked conversions yet because I want to get a lot more clicks first.

Anyone else experience the same thing?

Using P202, my referrers seem random on CPV traffic. It seems to vary with different traffic sources. I haven't worried about it much because as long as I am showing the keyword or URL that generated the traffic, I can still optimize.

I'm getting sites like 14634.hit75.namiflow.com popping my ads.

Obviously, I have 0 clickthrus from this site and it's popping my ads like crazy...

How the heck can I disable it?? I know my lps aren't bad but this has got to be one of those clickfraud type sites or something...

Edit: Ok this site only pops up when I use keywords; it doesn't pop for urls. So I just deleted all my keywords. Only gonna use urls from now on.

You can track traffic sources in Adon as well as keyword/urls. Just add PARTNERIDS to your tracking link and then you'll see what sources are working and what aren't. You can then turn off specific partner ids that aren't working. Takes a bit longer to work through but it can make a difference.

You setup specific traffic settings for each campaign. Go to Manage Campaigns -> Traffic Settings -> Create Traffic Tag

Give your tag a name (you could make it the campaign name or type of offer eg education). Select the type of ad (pop under) and then the traffic source. I usually pick both but I've heard arguments that one is better than the other (can't remember which, maybe someone else can weigh in on this).

Then click on 'traffic source ids' - one of the headings along the top. You'll see them all listed as being OK. When you get data that one of them isn't converting for you, then you'd come back in and find the one you want to block and move it across to the left.

Once you've created the tag then go into your campaign settings and select the tag from the drop down list at the bottom of the page. Click save and you're good to go.

When you want to edit the traffic source then just follow the same steps. Instead of creating a traffic source just click on it to edit.

Does that make sense?

Yea thanks. I think I'm figuring it out. Not really enjoying addon though, my LP ctrs are pretty bad though I've heard anything above 2% is pretty good. So maybe I'm not doing that bad.
