- Does Ultimate web traffic show in Google Analytics?
1- Google analytic does not track visitors delivered through expired domains properly because they require having the URL of your website in the browser's URL section and that is not the case with redirected traffic because the advertiser's website loads inside a frame. You should add www.statcounter.com or www.extremetracking.com in order to see the details of every visitor we send to your site. We recommend you using Bit.ly
to avoid any issue related to GA with your clients.
2- Google Analytics reads visits that use a 1st party cookie. Our Traffic System sets 3rd party cookies as a result of our tracking integration, that Google Analytics cannot read. Whereas Google Analytics will pick up a small amount of visitors, it is not the preferred method of analyzing the web traffic. We suggest all customers to use the Bit.ly
tracking system to insure accuracy.
- What methods do you recommend for tracking?
Tracking Our Traffic.
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 customers account.
One method we highly recommend to customers and resellers is to use a Bit.ly
redirect for your customers. You would enter the customers link into Bit.ly
, and when Bit.ly or lnk.direct gave you your unique redirect link, you would enter that into the system. This allows you and the advertiser to view a common 3rd party report showing numbers. If a customer orders 5000 visitors and Goo.gl shows 4000 visitors we will make up the difference until Bit.ly or lnk.direct reflects exactly what the customer has purchased. Since Bit.ly and lnk.direct is so reliable if an advertisers site is down or overloaded, this can be proof that the traffic was delivered between our servers and Bit.ly or lnk.direct but the decay was a direct result of the advertisers site, which you can not be responsible for.
Should you choose not to use the above recommended methods, we advise your customers use some type of image based statcounter. This would be such counters as those provided by statcounter.com and hitstats.com
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 that 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. For this reason, we strongly advise you steer customers clear of this method of tracking. If they are insistent, then you will need to use the Goo.gl method above to retain proof for you and your client.
Simple proof for this is "(not provided)" problem that Google Analytics has which is not identifying the keywords because they are encrypted and only 1st party.
- Do you sell web traffic by impressions?
Ad impressions are the number of times that an ad is displayed on a website. In order to figure it out, you need to divide the total cost by the cost you pay per 1000 impressions. Then multiply your answer by 1000.
But as we send visitors and this is calculated by targeted traffic it has much higher reliability and bounce rate will be much lower comparing if you purchase through impressions.
Technically, the advertisors that have a limited resources of publisher websites uses impression as it is not technically for them to achive the same result as targeted traffic.
If you order for some time our targeted web traffic and monitor then you can get a estimated measure for this. There would be much higher impressions generated from our targeted traffic comparing when you buy impressions only.
Please contact us from contact page if you are interested to receive the orders only by impressions.
- When will my orders start?
From the time to have placed your order to the time you see the visitors, it may take 6 hours to 5 days depending the order, country, category. This time frame gives us a chance to select the best publisher for your website.
We understand that a quick start time is essential to the success of your business. We have employed 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 orders and clients 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 48 hours unless our system has detected a problem with the account. We typically schedule account activations at 8am and 4pm GMT. We also process approvals at 8 AM GMT 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 an alert system. When an alert is entered into the system you are notified via e-mail and you will be notified when you first log into your account. It is very important that you check your email often to ensure that there are no issues with any order you placed.
Please note that live support operators cannot activate any campaign.
- Will I get my order delivered on time?
We do our best to deliver every single order on time but in some occasions depending on the category or country due to limited traffic, we may have slower traffic but OUR GUARANTEE is to deliver any single visitors that it is promised. E.g. If you order 100000 for 1 days for Greece Alexa Order, then there may not be enough publisher to deliver your orders. We prolong your order but guarantee is to deliver any single visitor to your website at highest quality. Above could apply to any country or category. If you want to be sure, then please contact before you place order.
Some customers may want their traffic to be delivered over a 24 hour period rather than in a certain period of time. When you make a campaign hourly, it will take the total daily needed, divide it by 24 and increase it by that amount each hour. So if you have a campaign that needs 2400 per day, making it hourly will give the customer 100 each hour ( 100x24=2400 ).
- What is GEO Targeting and How do you determine GEO Targeting?
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 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.
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.
- Why was the URL marked risky and what does this mean?
A URL is marked risky when the HTML code contains objects that may harm our network users. It is the job of the technical support team here to check the URL out completely before activating it into the network. Our AI Script looks for certain tags in the html of a site. Many times the URL may be flagged without having any specific issues.
- What are the different types of traffic you offer?
We offer 4 types of traffic currently.
Targeted Traffic - This is traffic that can be both category targeted and GEO Targeted. The category targeting can be changed at anytime 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 websites 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'.
- Current Traffic Geotargets Offered
Current Geo Targets we offer:
USA - Eastern
USA - Central
USA - Mountain
USA - Pacific
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 chose 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 publishers users. in addition these networks violate our frame breaking terms.
- Where does your traffic come from?
Our network owns and operates many well-known internet websites. Our current portfolio consist of over 9500 websites internet wide, including 4 established search engines, 3 internet service providers, movie sites, social networking sites, online gaming sites, and a well known domain registrar which currently hosts over 10700 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 Traffic?
Premium simply means that your clients will be placed in the best possible site rotation. In order to qualify for premium status, your clients site may not contain any of the following. Frame breakers or busters
Sound of any kind
Pops of any kind
Browser altering codes or download / exit prompts.
- What if the website contains 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?
A java pop 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 advertisers site will be run in a Worldwide raw network. There is no way around this.
- What types of sites are accepted?
We understand that turning away business hurts both you and us. For this reason we have very simple guidelines to ensure that you and your customers understand what to expect when it comes to traffic delivery.
We maintain various networks in order to deliver traffic based on the advertisers 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. Websites in 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 an alternative sites that does not contain sound so that they may run in 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 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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).

- Is your traffic 100% safe to use with Google Adsense?
No, unfortunately we can not guarantee the absolute safety of Google Adsense Traffic. This is because we have seen instances in which websites were penalized for receiving large bulks of traffic (and clicks) to their Google Adsense ads. Therefore, if you use it, we strongly recommend you to follow the following tips with regard to the safe and profitable use of Google Adsense:
• Use Google Adsense in moderation
• Use it in conjunction with other traffic sources
• Continuously buy traffic in order to maintain a constant flow
- Visits coming from the same IP
If your customers are asking why visits are coming from the same ip, chances are they 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 customers site. These however do not reflect the ip addresses of the actual visitors to the customers site.
- What is the maximum amount 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.
1. What is the geotarget of the order?
2. What is the interest target of the order?
3. Is the order free from sound?
4. Does the order contain any type of pop up or exit window?
5. 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.
- How can I spread traffic evenly over the day?
If you are looking to spread out the traffic evenly during the day, we would recommend the hourly feature. This can be done during manual set up, or it can be updated after a campaign has gone live by simply clicking the "make hourly" link.
- Is the cost the same for casino, geotarget, and category traffic?
Yes. We do not charge additional for targeting or geotargeting. The only price difference you will see is between the different types of traffic offered.
- What is the default starting date for a campaign?
A campaign is given the date that the order is placed. If your customer places an order on Saturday, and you activate it on Monday the Saturday date will still be present. It is advised that you inform your customers that the start date is considered the date in which you received your first visitor.
- Can I add multiple GEO Targets?
You can not add multiple GEO Targets to one order. You may add multiple orders for one account, that will cover multiple GEO Targets however.
- Can I add multiple targets?
We can update the targeting at anytime during the duration of your campaign. You can not add multiple targets to one order however. You may add multiple orders for one account, that will cover multiple targets however.
- How much will an Alexa rank increase with visitors?
lexa 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.
- Why did my traffic come in so fast?
Our servers receive about 50,000 - 60,000 visitors every minute from all over the world. Our system serves orders equally through out the day. Typically when a new order is activated on the first day if the majority of the other sites with the same geotarget and category target have completed or have a significantly larger amount of visitors delivered for that day, your order becomes priority #1 resulting in a fast delivery of visitors to the site. If you are having trouble with traffic coming in too quickly we recommend trying the hourly option either when setting up the account, or the "make hourly" link after the account is running.
- Do you offer mobile traffic?
We currently do not offer mobile traffic. We are planning to offer this service sometime in mid 2014.
- Can I sell the traffic at any price I want?
Yes. You set the retail prices for the services you purchase from us. Be sure however to check that the market will bear the prices you have set. Price the market and adjust accordingly.
- What does LIM mean next to Geo Targets?
LIM simply means that we have limited exposure in that country. Volume can fluctuate from 0 to a few hundred daily depending on the network reach of that day.
- How do I add casino traffic?
There is no upcharge for casino traffic. It can be purchased either as regular targeted traffic or adult traffic depending on the content of the casino site. Each inventory type has a casino target. This is how you would then specify the account as a casino order.
- Do you support Adf.ly or similar websites?
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 chose 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 publishers users. In addition these networks violate our frame breaking terms.
- How do I pay you if I don't have a PayPal account?
You can still pay us without having a PayPal account. If you don't have a PayPal account, you'll be automatically redirected to a secure page in Ultimatewebtraffic.com checkout where you can enter your credit card information.
When you're done, you'll have the option of saving your credit card details with PayPal by creating a PayPal account. If you don't want to create an account, you can skip this part here.
