    Hello,

    I'm doing a few PPV campaigns at trafficvance and I'm looking to find out what kind of user-agents trafficvance leaves behind? How can I do so? Basically I don't want the advertisers to be able to spot my source of traffic. I do change the referrer but they still somehow managed to notice that i use trafficvance.

    Thanks

    I don't think that they come to that conclusion based on the Useragent cause I don't know for TV but at LLI the User agent is the actual user agent of the user, so it is different for every user, I think that for TV it has to be the same.
    I think they use some sort of spying service like boxofads.
    Though here is the code to put in the variable $ua the value of User agent:
    Code:
    $ua=$_SERVER[HTTP_USER_AGENT];
    Next you have to log it to text file or database.

    Is there any method to avoid being caught red handed by using trafficvance as my source of traffic? Once again, I change the referrer and I'm 100% sure it doesn't leak but what else can I do?
