Ad System - Traffic Redirect System + Extended Fraud Detection

Traffic Redirect System (Extended Fraud Detection)

This module was created to give more options to Ad Network, regarding how to redirect users to Advertiser's Landing page from the tracking Link. This module also collects a lot of information about the traffic to figure out the quality of the traffic i.e. Fraud detection.

Without this module, all the traffic will be redirected to Advertiser's Landing Page using 'PHP 302 Redirect ' , and while redirecting we will collect the following data regarding each Click (all available to you in the Report Page):

usually Ad Network use 'PHP' in their global settings. and apply 'Extended JavaScript Redirect' or 'Smart Redirect' for their new  publishers to test their traffic quality. And when the Account manager is satisfied with the traffic quality their change their traffic redirect method as 'PHP;

Please remember 'PHP redirect' is still the faster way of redirecting traffic.

Any Traffic redirect based on 'JavaScript' is slower . you can actually see how long it is taking to redirect in the reports page at columns: 'Processing Time' and 'Javascript Processing Time'

Please also note that . any traffic based on JavaScript will show up in the reporting page only after 2 minutes.
