Default 243 Views with one opt-in directcpv?

Hey guys, I had 243 views from directcpv but only had about 1 optin (possibly me testing my own page). Is this normal? Or is directcpv sending fake traffic. My stats tool says I'm getting the traffic, but I would think even the crappiest squeeze page would have a couple opt ins after getting over 200 views.

I've had many times that i would get 1 to 2 leads per 1k views.

Just keep testing, I never do DL though.
Always use LP's as you have more control.

Well the thing is, how can you get conversions when 95% of the traffic you are getting are bots?

Im using the netherlands as a target and i think DirectCPV just doesn't have enough traffic of that country and tries to make it up with bot traffic.

Check the thread right below this one, its basically confirmed that Direct CPV is bot traffic.

Short answer:

- Mouseclick stats point to bots
- Mouse movements look like bots
- I do very well with PPC and have not gotten a single conversion on many test offers with targeted or RON. Spend at over $1k (Mostly not my money )
- DirectCPV got me booted from flagged traffic on aff networks

After hearing this, if you use it, you are just banging your head against a brick wall. Take what you spent as a learning experience that people out there will cheat you and ask for a refund of your balance.

Ran a campaign yesterday on RON with DCPV with close to 4,000 views and I only received ONE opt-in.

Certainly a possibility that they're sending you fraud traffic. If you don't know what to look for yourself, or want an automated tool use one of the fraud traffic detection tools - which will not only tell you what traffic (even at a SUBID level) if fake, but give you evidence to take to your traffic buyer and demand refund or extra inventory.

I've seen some smaller less reputable traffic sellers sending 100% fraud traffic - even well known and regarded networks send 20-25% fake traffic.
