Forces

Parameter Description
Instant: instant free (blue color) or force (red color) hits set. When you set Instant hits, forcing starts immediately. The amount you set will be sent out to the respective trade(s) as soon as there is enough outgoing uniques available.
Per hour: amount of hits to be sent per hour.
Time: Eduration (infinitive time scale ; send forces for X hours; force only, if incoming raw hits (last 60 mins) for this trade fall below X).
Delay: time delay set (forces are displayed in shaded font until time delay expires).

Script info

Parameter Description

Locked TE3 file permissions are set to writable / non-writable.

System trades

Parameter Description
Bookmarks in.php module sets a special “bookmark cookie” for each visitor of your web site, with expiration date of 30 days. If visitor with a “bookmark cookie” returns to your web page within the next 30 days and he was NOT referred from another web site (environment variable “HTTP_REFERER” must be empty), he will be counted under system trade “Bookmarks”. Some visitors have their browsers set to block “time based” cookies. In this case, visitor will be counted under system trade “No referrer”. Learn more about “Bookmarks” and “Outgoing redirections” here.
No referrer these surfers don't carry referrer information (environment variable “HTTP_REFERER” is empty), therefore you can't see where they came from. They don't have a special “bookmark cookie” set neither (refer to “Bookmarks” section above). Part of these surfers have some kind of security software installed on their computers that blocks “HTTP_REFERER” variable and part of them are “type-ins” (surfers who typed your web site address directly into the browser's address bar). Learn more about “No referrer” and “Outgoing redirections” here.
Unknown traffic referred from sources (domains) that are NOT listed in your database. This traffic is usually totally legitimate. Navigate to the Overview menu, click on the “Multi task” icon for system trade “Unknown” and select “Referrers” from the drop down. You will see a list of referring URLs in a pop-up window. Learn more about “Unknown” and “Outgoing redirections” here.
No cookie these are surfers with cookies disabled or blocked. You won't see any incoming traffic under system trade “no cookie”, because incoming traffic is always tracked properly, with or without cookies. The problem only occurs when it comes to tracking “clicks”. All clicks produced by “no cookie” traffic will be counted under system trade “No cookies”. Learn more about “No cookie” and “Outgoing redirections” here.
SE incoming traffic and clicks, produced by surfers referred to your site by search engines, are counted under this system trade. Learn more about “SE” and “Outgoing redirections” here.
SE % the percent of Search Engine traffic ( SE traffic / Raw ).
SE Progress Inspect if the traffic reffered to your site by search engines is increasing or decreasing.
Spiders special method for detecting search engine spiders is integrated. When “Google bot”, “MSN bot”, “Yahoo bot” and others crawl your site, they are counted under system trade “spiders”, regardless of the referrer. Learn more about “Spiders” and “Outgoing redirections” here.
Blocked surfers with IPs listed on the “IP block list” are counted under system trade “blocked”. You can access “IP block list” from the “Tools / IP block list” menu. There you can manually add or remove individual IPs. We have also implemented “auto blocking” module. It can be configured from the “Tools / Auto blocking” menu. Read all about “IP block list”, “Auto blocking” and “Whitelist” modules here, or learn more about “Blocked” and “Outgoing redirections” here.
Exout these are visitors who visited all trades in your database in one session. You can configure “Exout” in the “Options / Outgoing redirections” pop-up. If Reset cookie option is selected (default), out.php module will reset “visited trades” parameter in surfer's cookie and it will start again from the beginning of the outgoing list. Unless “Outgoing redirection” is set, you won't see any activity for system trade “Exout”. Learn more about “Exout” and “Outgoing redirections” here.
Bounced some trades will send surfers you have just sent them, directly back to you. If protection against “Bounced” traffic is enabled (default & recommended), trades referring “bounced” traffic won't be credited for it. These visitors will be counted under system trade “Bounced”. Learn more about “Bounced” and “Outgoing redirections” here.
Max clicks a cookie set by in.php module will count the number of clicks a surfer produces in the last 24 hours. Individual visitors who produced more clicks than “Max clicks” value set will be counted under system trade Max clicks. Learn more about “Max clicks” and “Outgoing redirections” here.
TE out a small percent of traffic we take in the free version.
Social media incoming traffic and clicks, produced by surfers referred to your site by social media platforms, are counted under this system trade. Learn more about “Social media” and “Outgoing redirections” here.

Proxy

Parameter Description
In: number of incoming proxy raw hits based on the environment variables (HTTP_VIA and HTTP_X_FORWARDED).
In %: incoming proxy traffic in percents, based on the environment variables.
Clk: number of proxy clicks based on the environment variables.
Clk %: proxy clicks in percents, based on the environment variables.

Mobile

GNB

Parameter Description
Graph: good, normal, bad graph. Hold mouse over the graph to see more details.
Quality: good, normal, bad quality ratio is calculated based on the amount of incoming raws received from each country group and their weights. By default, GNB quality ratio is NOT included in the algorithms for outgoing traffic distribution and it serves for informative purposes only.

No JS

Parameter Description
In incoming raw hits produced by surfers with JavaScript disabled.
In% percent of incoming raw hits produced by surfers with JavaScript disabled (In / Raw).
