    Allow bad traffic on ProxLists.Com?

    Hi,
    This is a topic I posted on my 2 favorite forums!
    Yes, yes, it's posted on NetBuilders and WPT!

    Hopefully the owners can share some opinions with each other?

    What do you owners prefer?
    Do I need to allow china, iran etc. traffic to ProxLists.Com too or not? I get tons of it on all my proxies (even if they're blocked, they get accessed by thousands of ways)...

    It won't hurt your proxies, as when a user from those countries would visit your proxies, they would just could use it, or see a 'blocked' page...

    Normally I wouldn't do this, but as I see 2 of my big oponnents (and there are dozens of others too) allow it (Proxy.org & AZProxies.com)


    What is the best? Allow it or disallow it? My alexa will go higher too which can be good, but it can also have a negative effect to my adsense earnings...

    It's just something I can decide... so maybe you can help me?

    I don't think it affects me very much, I'm blocking China, Turkey and Iran through htaccess, but if it affects your traffic and AdSense then Google might just decide to deindex you and that would be bad for all of us. Is traffic from these bad countries really that important to you? Wouldn't it be better to translate your proxlists site into Spanish, Portuguese, Russian and grow your traffic in south America and Russia instead? At least Google doesn't have a problem with that traffic.

    I found a great thing to solve this problem.. I thought about it when I was matching this morning...

    You'll see it soon (If you're from one of these countries though )

    Here is another idea for you if its a matter of earnings you can use a geoip script to show say adbrite ads to the "crap traffic" and adsense to only the countries you want. Can take it one step further and show adsense also to only the cream of the crop and show it to search engine traffic.

    Interested in seeing what you have done.

    Well mate,
    I'll explain it here, as I'm not ready with it, but I don't think someone will do the same now (it's possible though, but doesn't matter )

    I am currently busy adding my site in different languages... and what I will do is a bit like you said... I will make http://BT (?).proxlists.com (BT = Bad Traffic) and I'll just redirect all CN, IR, HK, SA etc.. to that subdomain...

    I'll search for some Dutch people who are willing to advertise there and ofcourse I'll add AdBrite etc too

    All others will use Adsense ofcourse Is this a good idea or not?

    Since you are separating them what if for a week or two you create separate channel in adsense and set it up on that sub domain to see how its earnings really are with this traffic using adsense.

    It's possible..
    Though, I prefer seeing these stats: (from proxies)
    http://i39.tinypic.com/b4jj0y.png

    Than these: (Proxy, but smartpriced)
    http://www.pics9.com/image-2FA9_4996406A.jpg

    Last one isn't mine btw

    So I'm not testing this too bad.. though, someone else may try
