    This may seem very basic (and I know it is....) but lately i've been noticing alot of locations on the map overlay section of google analytics show the city hits as "0"

    I recently bought traffic from a new source is this as a result of bots?

    See attached.

    Thanks

    It could be that the traffic you bought is FAKE.

    You're money has been wasted. Let it be a lesson - don't "buy" traffic.

    It never seems like a good idea what something seems to good to be true, "buying traffic."

    Take a guess
    When I click on one of the images I get wind energy in my face and then some porn popup and finally this: "Firefox wants to connect to 109.71.162.197 on TCP port 8080 (http-alt)" The fuck?

    On topic: Don't use Google analytics with BH.

    i cant say the same. when your using the traffic for CPM (which is what i'm doing...) and have combined bought traffic with other traffic sources it works all good for me.

    just tried out a new source and it may or may not be legit, simple.

    either, way i've already been refunded

    "Let it be a lesson - don't "buy" traffic." Man are you kidding me?

    1st of all: I got my money back
    2nd: you have NO idea what I bought the traffic for. but for whatever you obviously have in mind the answer is HELL NO.:p

    lastly, i'll be buying traffic and in bringing organic and other methods of traffic from here on out....
