What methods do you recommend for tracking?

Solution

Our servers track visitors in real time as they pass through our network. Each time a visitor lands on your website for more than 20 seconds we count this as 1 visitor and deduct it from your account.

One method we highly recommend is to use a Goo.gl redirect. You would enter your link into Goo.gl, and when Goo.gl gave you your unique redirect link, you would enter that into the system. This allows you to view a common 3rd party report showing numbers. If you order 5000 visitors and Goo.gl shows 4000 visitors we will make up the difference until Goo.gl reflects exactly what you purchased. It is important to note that all Goo.gl must be fresh and have a starting visitor count of less than 10. Using an old account will result in distorted numbers.

Please note that while we will do our best to deliver the Goo.gl matches within the time frame selected, we can not guarantee the time frames 100% due to resets that take place on a daily basis.

Should you choose not to use the above recommended methods, we advise our customers to use some type of image based statcounter. This would be such counters as those provided by statcounter.com and hitstats.com

WE DO NOT ACCEPT GOOGLE ANALYTICS AS PROOF OF DELIVERY.

Everyone automatically assumes because it is Google, it is good. GA 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 GA. For this reason, we strongly advise you steer clear of this method of tracking. If you insist, then you will need to use the Goo.gl method above to retain proof in case issues arrise.
