Outgoing lists

Menu: Settings / Outgoing list

Modifying “Outgoing list” settings can have a huge impact on the outgoing traffic distribution. If not set properly, traffic on your site could decrease. Before you apply any changes, read this topic very carefully.

“Outgoing list” is a list of your active trades, with a certain amount of percentage assigned to them. The percentage represents the probability at which traffic should be sent to the particular trade and is calculated from the Owed ratio and preset Weights.

The higher Owed ratio for a particular trade is, the more likely it is to receive traffic. Trade with the highest Owed ratio is aloted the top slot on the “outgoing list”, trade with the second highest Owed is placed on the second slot, etc. Every time a surfer clicks a link on your server that links through out.php, Owed ratio changes and “outgoing list” gets re-calculated in real-time.

Note, that not all your active trades get placed on the “outgoing list” - you specify the number (25% by default). Only trades on the list will receive traffic, the rest are pending until they are aloted a slot based on the Owed ratio.

TE3 “outgoing list” also tracks visited sites and if a surfer has already visited some of the sites on the list, those trades get replaced by the highest placed pending trades.

You can choose between two types of “outgoing lists”:

1. Automatic outgoing list

“Automatic outgoing list” is set by default and should be sufficient for most webmasters - it is the more efficent method of distributing traffic in most cases. All parameters are preset, but can be fully customized to meet your specific needs:

# Action Description
1. Automatic / Manual: choose between “Automatic” and “Manual” outgoing list.
2. Outlist length: specify, what percentage of active trades you would like to place on the outgoing list. Learn more
3. Start weight value: specify start weight value (e.g. 1000 or 100).
4. Decrease ratio: specify decrease ratio. Decrease ratio affects percentage asigned to trades. Learn more
5. Successive number: succesive slot number - trade with the lowest number has the highest priority on the outgoing list.
6. Graph: probability a surfer will be sent to a respective trade.
7. Domain: domain name for the respective trade.
8. Update: outgoing list.



Since “Automatic outgoing list” distributes traffic automatically, there are some limitations:

  • you cannot add / delete records - the number of slots is fixed (you can change the Outlist length) and trades are aloted to the slots automatically, based on the Owed ratio,
  • Weights for slots on the list cannot be modified directly - they get calculated automatically from the Start weight value and Decrease ratio - if you change Decrease ratio, Weights will be re-calculated accordingly.

Outlist length

You can change the number of slots on the list by modifying the percentage of active trades (“outgoing list” must have at least one slot).

Example

Decrease ratio

Trades on the “outgoing list” are relative to each other and the Decrease ratio defines correlation between them. When you edit Decrease ratio, you influence distribution dispersion and you change probability a trade will receive a surfer. As you can imagine, different settings will produce very different results - we don't advise you to experiment with this feature, only change Decrease ratio when you have a good reason for it.

Example


2. Manual outgoing list

“Manual outgoing list” is designed for users with very specific requirements. If you switch “Outgoing list” from Automatic to Manual, default settings (Outlist length, Start weight value and Decrease ratio) will be disabled. “Manual outgoing list” is fully customizable - specify the number of slots on the list by adding and deleting records, define correlations between trades by setting Weights for each slot:

# Action Description
1. Automatic / Manual: choose between “Automatic” and “Manual” outgoing list.
2. Add record click icon to add record.
3. Delete record: click icon to delete record.
4. Successive number: succesive slot number - trade with the lowest number has the highest priority on the outgoing list.
5. Weight: set weight as a descending value (“Manual outgoing list”).
6. Graph: probability a surfer will be sent to a respective trade.
7. Domain: domain name for the respective trade.
8. Update: outgoing list.
