    I've recently launched a few adult content sites and have signed up with a number of affiliate programs. I'm noticing some discrepancies around traffic reporting and was interested to hear from others. I log all outbound traffic. Using my own infrastructure of logstash and also using an outbound event with Google Analytics. To see how I do it visit the pastebin LNScxLFG
    What I have noticed in a HUGE difference in what is logged and what is reported by the affiliate. Some are accurate, others are way off. One affiliate in particular reports less than 20% of actual traffic. Is anybody else logging outbound clicks to audit these programs? Are any of them more reputable than others? The programs I have been trying are web cam affiliates.
