Udimi filtering went through the roof all of sudden

Hi everybody,

During the last few days I've noticed a change in Udimi filtering algorithm. All of sudden filtered traffic skyrocketed for no reason and the funny thing is that the filtered traffic that is redirected to a backup link where I have several other offers running is making me sales. I've shared my experience with other sellers on this platforms and it seems that it's not an isolated case.

What's going on?

Thanks!

It’s out of control. JavaScript off is not a reason to filter. Still no answer from Udimi on this thread.

Thanks for everybody who sent their logs to our support. They allowed us to re-check everything and make sure it works fine. No bugs or issues were found.

Regarding Javascript is Off filter... It was here for 10+ years and will stay. Try to disable javascript on your browser and then to use any site. It will be unusable. 99% of sites DO use javascript and a user without this technology is useless.

Best regards, Uncle Dimitry.

I have the same filters on my end on Clickmagick. But the past few months have been something strange. Even filtered clicks return back and I make sales from CB and CPA networks, but it is getting annoying.

One thing ive noticed in udimi stats that they count a lot of clicks as useless, and some of these usless click will be marked as bots or crawlers, but after investigating some of these IPs they are 100% not BOTs or crawlers, in fact they are real user IPs that click, subscribe and even purchase the offer.

I noticed it a few years ago, but then it was about ~10% filtered clicks max, and accepted it because anyway I make good sales from returned/filtered traffic. But now I must add 30%-35% to my orders it`s annoying and customers ask about why so high filtered click % should worry about the quality of traffic.

I have the exact same issue sending over 30 percent to complete orders and clients asking same if traffic is high quality. I remember that a few years ago when we had a big jump. Seemed it was repaired in no time.

How many of you are writing to support regarding this. Despite dealing with filtering myself it is higher than before. I have no idea why they keep changing the algorithm.

Been here eight years, and this is nothing new... So my staff reviews every filtered click, and we modified our click system to filter what UDIMI filters. It does not matter if I agree or disagree with Udimi...I send them the traffic they want, and the rest goes into my sale funnel...and yes, I get conversions.

On my end, the filtering has nothing to do with bots, scrapers, servers or similar stuff. Mostly of the filtering I get is because of the "heuristic" likely traffic exchange algorithm. I guess that if some subscribers of mine reads more than one of my emails and visit the different links I'm promoting in a specific timeframe it gets marked as likely traffic exchange because same IP is recorded in more than one udimi links but that makes no sense to me. On the contrary it means that he's eagerly looking for the best opportunity to join and redirecting all his extra visits to my backup links will just be a potential missing sales for other clients links I'm promoting
