    90% of traffic from Iran. Possibility of Smart Pricing?

    Hello all,

    Granted it is the summer but I have been working on getting my earnings back up to par and ready for the new year.

    Right now almost 90% of my proxy traffic is from Iran. I had this country blocked via CSF but I just have not disabled it again. I am sure my earnings will fall by half. Is there any way I can redirect this traffic in CSF?

    Traffic by Country

    1. Iran
    2. Saudi Arabia
    3. United States.


    I am afriad that this traffic comes from reposting of links on to Middle Easter forums and groups.

    Am I at risk of being smart priced? I was back in March, down to litertally .01 a click and I am at about $.07 a click now.

    What are your thoughts?

    Adsense pays for traffic from there maby $5 for 200 clicks. I think the pricing of clicks has less to do with smartpricing and more to do with the origin it came from.
    Cpm ads from places like Mediashakers pay 0.0001 ecpm for it which may aswell be nothing. Adsense is only reason I would see to allow traffic from there if not running a charity.

    So then what is smart pricing.

    I always though Smart Pricing was traffic coming from countries such as Iran.

    If what your saying is true I should wait until September to redirect my traffic?

(Smartpricing isn't even really documented. Google Adsense just made one post on that a few years ago. Its set in stone anywhere..
    Cpm ads from places like Mediashakers pay 0.0001 ecpm for it which may aswell be nothing. Really the situation which you will not want is having a visitor earning you 0.0001 using your proxy while there is a U.S visitor that earns you 0.14 Ecpm waiting in line for a client connection. Which will make you lose money. In that situation you will want to block the less paying country or beef up your server capicaty in such a way that the low paying traffic will still be making enough to earn its keep.

    Myself everyday I log into my adsense account and I see on channels like 200 clicks and only a few bucks, Then on some 3 clicks and $2. Which is occurring to me now that it must be Iran, since I have alot of traffic from that country. While the good clicks are probably from a U.S visitor or such. I dont think there is any smart pricing happening here.

    My idea is more advanced but I'm a bit of programmer. For Sept are to use this Geoip function I progammed using the maxmind database to throttle and set low limits for traffic from there and block them if the server hits certain server load, I've tied it into all my proxy sites. I merly have to edit a file and turn it too true or false at any time. It also uses sessions to identify them as their using the proxy and make sure there not hitting the geoip again on there next visit, since the geoip lookup is somewhat ostly the cpu.

    For others what they do is just redirect them to another domain or folder with just adsense and low limits set on it. Which is not as transparent however but will work too.

    Edit: Actually I just realized if they have Cookies disabled then it throws a whole wrench into my code cuasing the script to go into a infinite redirect loop. Well that was waste of 2 days of work! I should of thought of that before. >.< But yeah thats what I recommend to too is set the download limits etc low for the low paying traffic.

    Redirect Traffic

    Hey Dollar,

    Instead of blocking Iran traffic send them to my special bad countries proxy:
    Alert Pay Hub

    The poor people from Iran will be glad to access the Internet freely on Alert Pay Hub. If will glady help you setting up the redirect if you want.

    Thanks!
