    To cut a long story short.

    I have two domains that redirect to one of crakrevenues offers.

    One of these domain names i used for a porntube for about 12 months which recently got punished by google for spammy back links. The other domain is just a spare domain i have that i never used.

    The porn tube used to only get around 200-500 unique visits a day.

    Since i started redirecting visitors to the crakrevenue offer, unique visits have gone wild, i am using a couple methods to drive traffic to the offer and unique visits were averaging around 30 a day (not alot i know but i dont have time to make an effort) until 4-5 days ago, now unique visits are getting upto 3k a day, with most coming from china and russia, the rest from the USA.

    Ive messaged crakrevenue but no reply.

    I dunno what to think or do. I mean it maybe be possible the traffic is legit. But i really dont think so.

    Can someone explain what may be happening or just share your thoughts. Thanks

    Hey Hawkster,

    Wish I could give you more of a clue. I can tell you this has happened t me over the past few days as well. No extra conversions, just a large surge in traffic. This has happened a couple of other times to me in the past. It like as though we are not the only ones either.

    I remember a while back when I was promoting plugrush with adult tumblr blogs one of my posts/links got re-blogged onto some weird Chinese site and the traffic went through the roof for a few days..... sadly it came with no conversions as well. Maybe something like that?

    Yeah could be, the thing is, im worried what crakrevenue will do, i have just over $100 dollars due to me, which i reached before the abnormal traffic arrived. I worry they'll refuse to pay me because of the abnormal traffic.

    The abnormal traffic started arriving around 4 days ago.

    Hopefully you get it sorted with Crak. I have heard it is hard to get in touch with them sometimes (especially on the weekends, since they as a company are closed - which baffles me in this industry). But, as long as you are trying to discuss it with them and be upfront, I don't see why they would give you a hard time. Good luck man.

    I am pretty sure that they will reply you back today, I always receive answers from them on weekdays. Their built-in chat is also pretty good.
    By the way, it happens to me every month too:

    Plus it is now a pattern that my earnings are always much better in the second period (from the 16th till 31st) of the month. Strange, but true. Anyway, I love crakrevenue, they always pay on time and never had any issue with them so far for the last few years.

    Don't think you'll get issues with your payment since you've made the money before the abnormal activity satarted, Check if the competition is creating spam bacllinks, or something, still if you are getting traffic of those contries but no convertion, I believe CR will be ok

    Hey Hawkster,

    What you're describing is odd - but I don't think it's related to you pushing our offers. It almost sounds like maybe someone shared your link on a site that gets a lot of Chinese/Russian visitors ? Maybe someone really liked one of your videos ;)

    Do you have Google Analytics set up on your site? Can you look to see the origin of this mysterious influx of traffic?

    However, I don't think you have anything to worry about. We would not take action against your account just because you have received extra traffic.. traffic is good!

    If you'd like us to double-check anything in your account, feel free to PM us your Crak ID!
