How to filter bot traffic?

559 viewsno comment Features How-tos Insights RON traffic

Programmatic is crowded with bot traffic. Publishers or even SSPs try to earn more, adding it to the flow. This way they get more money from advertisers but lower traffic quality and convertion ratio.

Unfortunately there is no single button to switch bot traffic off, but there is a way to filter and block it in your advertising campaigns.

We’ve developed a special script, that you need to place on your target page. The script will count users activity. For example how much pages they visit and how much time they spend on your website.

It can also count conversions, video views or any other target activity you want to achieve.

The script together with optimization rules will help you block traffic sources, that deliver you more bot traffic, than organic. You may do that by hand, but it’s a ton of work, better let our system do that for you. You can see the blacklists and whitelists any time and fix them if you think something is not OK.

Easiest way to lower bounce rate is to set optimization rules to block all sources with high bounce rate and 0 or close to 0 pageview time. Same thing applies to conversion rate and it works the same way.

Remember, there is no traffic sources with no bots at all. Internet is full of bots, even intelligent enough to bypass that filter, but you’ll get much cleaner traffic using our solution.

We highly recommend to use our script when buying RON traffic. It’s the best way to get cheap and good quality traffic.

3 ways to get cheap traffic

288 viewsno comment Features How-tos Insights RON traffic

There are a couple of ways to get free traffic for your blog or website, but they take a lot of time usually. If you need some traffic fast, but still very cheap, you can try using these 3 methods.

Pop traffic

Pop-up and pop-under traffic is usually not expensive even from major traffic vendors. You can get 1000 clicks for just 10 dollars, which is quite cheap. Pop traffic may still be targeted and filtered by source. You should also optimize it to get desired actions from users. Installs, sign ups, etc.

Minor traffic sources

Another way to get cheap traffic is using minor sources from native and display channels. One can say that small websites and apps don’t have good traffic. But thats an ad myth. There are a couple of facts, that mean just the opposite.

First. Small new websites try to build a live community to spread content organically. So they have a high percentage of live engaged traffic for you to get.

Second. Small websites are afraid to use bot traffic since they can easily get banned by SSPs or ad networks. Bot traffic can also destroy their SEO completely.

Never the less their traffic is much cheaper than that from major vendors.

Cheap audience traffic

Audience or Run of network traffic from all networks you can reach. It’s even about 2 times cheaper than Pop traffic, but it still can be good. There is less targeting options for RON but you can filter traffic by source. You’ll have to spend some time to get only good quality traffic, but as a reward you’ll get cheap traffic.

You may try all of those methods on REACH Network and decide which one is better.
