    Hello,

    I have a network of small adult blogs that display JuicyAds. In addition, I started with mobile redirects recently, in order to increase my revenue a little bit.

    Right now, I'm having 1000-2000 daily visitors on this network, which is really low for porn, but still! Out of those 1-2K visits, somewhere between 50-100 are mobile visitors. I noticed that it pays out to redirect those to JA. They pay decent money for this - from $4 to $20 eCPM on average, probably depending on geo information.

    Anyways, I decided to go with TrafficHolder, because I noticed they sell mobile traffic. It starts with $2.4, but it can go up to "whatever you want", depending how badly you need the traffic.

    I bought 2K visits, just to see how it goes. It turns out that JA detects only 1 in 50 visits, and situation with google analytics is also quite low. OK, I was expecting to see discrepancies, but this big???

    I figured out that sites that sell this traffic to them in the first place, actually sell it to TrafficHolder because they can't sell to JA or some similar network. It might be that most of these mobile phones (if those ARE phones in the first place...) already have some cookies set, which result in this...

    BAD.

    Any ideas how to increase mobile visits btw?

    Thx!

    I also noticed a big discrepancy between what traffic Trafficholder reports and what traffic is registered in Google Analytics.
    On one day Analytics detected 1837 uniques whilst Trafficholder reported 3133 uniques. They also sent me 30% of traffic from a different niche to the traffic I asked for. Asking them about it, let's see what they say.

    Regarding difference in Analytics and Traffichold stats, Traffic Holder told me :
    " The thing is the only 100% correct way to check stats is server logs
    We count every visitor redirected to your page
    Please check your nginx/Apache server logs first"

    When I told them that I was getting traffic from a niche I didn't ask for. They stopped the traffic from the unwanted niche and gave me credit.
