Hi All,

we published a change to click filter.

From today you can select filtering levels you want to apply to seller's traffic. For newbie buyers there is a detailed description for each filtering level.

In addition we have improved click statistics to include more information about each click.

Best, Uncle Dimitry.

Uncle D,

I am a bit concerned by what I see here.

From the looks of it there is NO INCENTIVE for a buyer to not choose ALL OF THESE.

Where can sellers add their appropriate markups?

And is this correct you will now allow full filtering of Mobile?

the buyer controls everything. This is a point of Udimi. You can make an agreement with a buyer and convince to turn off any/all filters.

after dust settles a little bit, we will add "Packages" option to Solo Deals, where the Seller will control all filters and adjust price accordingly.

allowing full filtering of Mobile clicks may hurt a lot of seller who are heavy in mobile traffic here.Since mobile traffic is increasing because people find it easy especially when there on the go or at work.

"after dust settles a little bit, we will add "Packages" option to Solo Deals, where the Seller will control all filters and adjust price accordingly." GOOD, this can't come soon enough cause I fear not knowing what a buyer has selected is just going to lead to seller confusion on the click counts.

@Liz Hall - Yeah I agree. I understand the motivating behind blocking mobile but without allowing a seller an appropriate markup is TOTALLY UNFAIR. I would charge $1.00 a click for something like that. According to Comscore desktop now only accounts for 40% or less of all traffic. One other point. To me it looks like the filter categorizes based on Host Name? But so many "Mobile Road Warrior" use their phone with their laptops. And also their are cellular routers now that people use.

if there able to block mobile clicks then we should have the opt-in to redirect them to other links, so they don't get them at all since they don't want them

As a buyer, I`m confused by this news. Maybe it will become clear on my next purchase.

it would be great if you would send all filtered clicks to a seller set url.

yes, the idea is superb. We are working on it as we speak. I believe we will make it live tomorrow.

Important: Tomorrow we will change overdelivery and filtering rules for all solos. All filtered traffic will no longer be sent to buyers, but to your overdelivery link. Please specify your link and maximum overdelivery percentage in Settings > Seller setup > Overdelivery Example: You’ve set 20% overdelivery. You sent 150 clicks on 100 click order. System filtered 20 clicks. 120 clicks will be sent to buyer. 30 clicks (filtered and overdelivered) will be sent to your Overdelivery link In addition, we will notify all sellers about this change Best, Uncle Dimitry.

Uncle D, I was reading the "Udimi Comments" for "Blacklisted" Check this mark if you don’t trust your seller Blacklisted IP is a 100% sure spammer in the past, but it is not 100% spammer now While blacklisted IPs are known for spamming, most antispam companies are shit. They have stupid workers. They are very slow Spammer’s IP can be assigned to an honest person Trustful IP can get into blacklist for no reason. Valid IPs can stay blacklisted for months Big email providers, like Google, Yahoo, Microsoft do not rely on spam blacklists for a reason Now based on these why in the world would the default option be ON ? Lol you said they were "shit" companies and the big emailers don't use them.

Also, something that people should be aware of is that clicks that come from "datacenter/hosting" are not necessarily bad clicks. It could simply be that a subscriber is using an email account he has set up in his hosting account. I have several emails set up in my hosting account that I receive and open emails from. If I click on a link from those email accounts it will register as "datacenter/hosting," when in fact it is actually a valid click.

I agree as well. More and more people use proxies just to protect their own privacy because of all the snooping.

I also know lots of IM'ers that use VPS's to do their work as the connections are far better then their home based Internet.

The bottom line is that most of the improvements made here on Udimi are to give the buyer a better experience, and I totally respect that. In the end it will also help the seller because they will get good feedback from their buyers. However, we have to be careful not to make it an issue where a seller has to send 200 clicks just to fill a 100 click solo. There needs to be a system of checks and balances for both the buyer and the seller, and I think that's what Uncle Dimitry is trying to achieve. For the most part, I like all of the changes being made.

That's great. Overall, I like the direction that the site is going in. I think it's already probably one of the most trusted sites to purchase solos, and these improvements are only going to help to weed out the scammers and make Udimi even safer & better. I can't believe how far it's some since the "old days" of selling solos over at Safe Swaps!

The only issue that I have with sending filtered clicks to the over delivery URL is that when I send out the swipe to my subscribers it promises a certain thing, such as a video course or ebook. If the subscriber clicks on the link expecting to receive that specific ebook and happens to get filtered, they will now end up going to my over deliver link, which is not going to be what that were promised in the swipe. I am afraid this could anger some of my subscribers and result in possible unsubscribes or a spam complaints. As a rule I do not use the over delivery feature at all for this reason. How would this affect the filtered clicks? Would they just go to the buyer as filtered clicks as they normally have been doing?
