UNDERSTANDING YOUR REPORT
 
Your report is structured to make it easy to understand how your payout/commission is calculated based on the quality of the traffic you are sending us.
 
You will see a row for each network ( or web property ) on which you are marketing. You can click on each network to drill down into specific origin pages, and other details.
 
For each network, we calculate 8 key performance indicators (KEI) metrics including 3 that we release publicly in the report. These are:
  • Click fraud rate - example, your website sends us 100 clicks, by 90 unique people, means some folks click through more than once, and your click fraud rate is 10/100 or 10%. A high click fraud rate could indicate POOR traffic of one form or the other.
  • Views per click - example, your website sends us 100 clicks, that went through 300 pages, means an average of 3 pages per click. A high views per click is a strong indication of a well put together marketing campaign.
  • Bounce rate - example, your website sends us 100 clicks, by 100 people, with 30 of which immediately leave without looking at any other page/information, means a bounce rate of 30/100 or 30%. A high bounce rate is a strong indication of both a poorly put together marketing campaign and/or POOR traffic of one form or the other.
We have chosen to not disclose the remaining metrics at this time to unscrupulous parties from engineering a solution that will evade our automated monitoring/reporting systems.
 
Your KEI values are color coded in red ( BAD ) and green ( GOOD ) on your report. You want all your KEI to be green to have a GOOD quality status for your traffic from any network. If any of your KEI is red, your quality status for that traffic will be marked as POOR.
