    Hi guys, I've been running a bot trap campaign (Image Above) and I can now see the real CTR% from human traffic which goes to my lead-gen offer.
    As you can see, there are 21.34% bots. But the thing which bothers me the most is the fact that I have 0 conversions. Even if I got a conversion now it's around 1% cr.
    Previous to this bot test, I've tested 5 different offers from that GEO and had ZERO leads.

    I know that a certain % of human visitors who see my LP must just close, but that's another focus after I figure out my offers problem.

    Can a GEO just not perform? I am targeting Singapore, beginning to wonder..
    Any advice would be a great help, this is a great forum and I am the type of person to NEVER EVER give up, it's not an option, so your help / advice will not be wasted.
    TIA


    NOTE: Ignore the costs, messed up since doing the bot test using 2 offers.

    EDIT: After saving this thread, now it's even 400 clicks, this is to one offer, the payout is $1.80 (image below)

    Yeah I've been bot trapping and only 20% was caught out, so I decided to test direct. But the examples above are not direct..
    Traffic source --> Blank page Javascript redirect 200ms > Real LP > offer
    I'm allover at the moment, hard to make a plan and stick to it.
    Any advice what to do next? I'm not bothered about profit (yet) just improving and learning to progress/improve a campaign. Lately however, they don't look like any improvement can be made!

    Ok great, so I use this on a blank page before my real LP and send humans there from the parent location at the bottom?

    So if my CTR is 100% to the LP, that means they are all human. Or will some bots still bypass this?

    Thanks for the code

    Great thanks, so just to make sure:
    Traffic source --> blank LP with this redirect code --> real LP --> offer

    Also, if Voluum says ex: 1.7k clicks... but my aff network says 800 clicks, was the difference bot clicks?

    Ok I was meaning before using this script but thanks a lot for the info!
    All setup now, looks like its working and due to what you said I can closely guarantee the CTR% on the actual offer is human now (I hope!) Appreciate the help, thanks!

    some bots read JavascriptCodes :) .
    make sure you use invisible link methos as well :).
    and start blacklisting.
    in the beginning try to increase the bid so you can get traffic from good placements.
    make sure you pay attention to the placements that sends boot traffic .

    Thanks for the reply! I put that js code in a html file, inside script tags, was I supposed to use a .js file?
    Traffic source --> website.com/botfilter.js --> real lp --> offer?

    What I did was:
    Traffic source --> website.com/bt.html --> real lp --> offer

    Yeah good point, to basically "double check". So ex:
    Traffic source --> js filter(Check1) --> Real LP(Check2 - with tiny link) --> Offer

    Just started running a fresh campaign.
    I have done the tiny image link method.

    Top row is bot link, bottom is my offer, seems to me like the bots are clicking my offer instead of the trap. Maybe I might name the image some trigger words or make it bigger and position different etc

    Ok so I just realised a BIG mistake I've done.
    I had my robots.txt disallow bots.... Whilst trying to identify the bad placements...

    So I've been paying for the views, but not able to catch the bot clicks and know bad placements because the bots couldn't access my site.
    FFS ah well, learn by mistakes! Good pointer for anyone else doing this.

    EDIT: Seem to be getting little to no clicks on the small link only humans would see...

    What about Javascript onclick, some bots can't read that right?
