    Fake traffic from centurian these days?

    Hello, I used to get ton of traffic from centurian but these days when i submitted proxies to centurian, I got almost one thousand visits showed in centurian but actually less than 50 visitors from both adsense stats and awstats. Anyone else has the same problem?

    Do you block some of your traffic ? Countries such as Iran etc... ? That could be the reason...

    Someone bombarded two of my lists as well, the stats showed over 1,700 visitors, in fact i had only 100 real users. Count your visitors on your site not the number of hits from the proxy lists, not all are accurate.

    I noticed Ceturian doesn't have a robots.txt disallowing access to the redirect on the site... There probably is a lot of search bots following the links.


    Edit: to clarify, on my site I have a robots.txt disallowing access the redirect file (url.php) as you can see,
    http://www.hidefinder.com/robots.txt , Centurian does have not any such thing in its robots.txt
    Google bot for example then will follow those links, adding fake hits to the links.
