AUTO BLACKLISTER

You can automatically remove all non converting source from your traffic. It updates every 60 minute the blacklist to be done and works 24/7. You need to have a S2S tracking in place sending the information every time a conversion happens.

    Important not: do NOT use "bid optimization" settings.

Once the number of clicks is reached, if no conversion was generated, then the SubID will be excluded from the traffic sources.

How many clicks to enter for blacklisting?

Start with two times the normal number of clicks you need to get a conversion (this comes from your history and knowledge). Typically, if your conversions are worth $5, then enter 2 x $5 = 10$ worth of traffic before blacklisting. If you get traffic at $1 CPM, "min subid clicks for blacklisting" should be set at 10.000 clicks.

Example:

Let's say your average conversion rate is of 0.033%. That means you normally need 3.000 Imps per conversion
As a recommendation, you should put the blacklister at minimum 6.000 imps (two times your average): if a subid has accumulated 6.000 impressions, and generated no conversion at all, it will be taken out and blacklisted. 

BLACKLIST A FEED


We strongly recommend you to blacklist the Pub subid instead of the whole feed (Traffic source). Within one feed there could be some Pub subid that convert well and others not at all. 

Go to Dashboard / Reports / Reports by Campaign and break down the campaign by "feed" (traffic source), clicking on the "+" button. ​Enter the feed / pub subid to blacklist

To identify the subID you should blacklist, check our post about optimization. Once you have identified the pubfeed.subid, edit your campaign on the campaign screen menu.

Scroll down to "TQ & Analytics", select what you want to do, and enter the all the pubfeed.subid (one per line) you need. For example, if the Pubfeed is [72179] and the Subid is [69641], you will have to enter it like that: [72179.69641]

Please note: you can leave the combo "blank", meaning you select to work without blacklist and without white-list.

BLACKLIST A KEYWORD OR A DOMAIN

You might also want to blacklist a specific keyword or a domain you don't want your pop to appear. In Keyword targeting, there is a mode called negative keyword. You can use that mode to blacklist domain (or a word) by putting the domain name as negative keyword.
