    Hey guys,

    I noticed that adcenter seems to be sending some fake traffic. For example when I choose to show ads only on bing & yahoo, I receive quality visitors and everything is ok, they stay on the page and read, but when I choose to show ads on bing yahoo & syndicate, I receive lots of fake traffic. Visitors stay less than 2 seconds. Do you get the same thing?

    It's exactly the same as using the "content network" on google adwords: your ads appear in adsense blocks on third party sites (and many people, including many BHers will send you fake traffic to increase their earnings).

    And even if it is not actually fake traffic, the traffic coming from third party sites has always a lower quality than the traffic coming from search engines.

    Be careful with Adcenter. I currently use them and make sure I only run adverts on the search network with the option " Only Bing and Yahoo Websites " which means visitors will only come from the Bing and Yahoo search engine. This means you will get quality visitors. I also tried the syndicated partners option and got pure garbage traffic.
