How to earn with Trafficback URL

Trafficback URL function is a great decision if you don’t want to lose your traffic which is non-valid by OS/GEO/DEVICE targeting settings you have at your offer.


Also you can send all the traffic which is over the daily cap to the trafficback URL by switching on this option (it also works with the individual daily limits you set for your publishers) Screenshot_2.png 

In Affise we have 2 types of Trafficback - Local one (Trafficback on the Offer level) and Global one (Trafficback on the Platform level). 

Local one (Offer level):


 Global one:


 All the clicks which doesn't suit your offer settings restrictions will be sent to the trafficback URL and won't be counted in Affise.
BUT If you want to count and redirect the mislead traffic to some offer, created/selected for the trafficback (monetize the traffic) - you should use the link, generated by Affise.
In this article we'll show you how it works and how it can help you to earn more on the mislead traffic:



 At the screenshot below you can see the implementation of trafficback for particular offer. It's the example, if you need to redirect all the mislead traffic from one offer to another one.
For this, you should first choose the offer, which you will use as a trafficback offer.
Here you should select the affiliate (Remember: Affiliate should be connected to this offer, or you can use public offer) and generate a link for him:


The generated link will look like this:

Change this part pid=1 to pid={pid}
So, your link will be{pid}&offer_id=1

{pid} - macro will be replaced with the id of affiliate who is redirected to the Trafficback URL, what will help you to track the conversions in a proper way. 
Then you should place this link as a trafficback URL of any offer you want.

Screenshot_5.png(IMPORTANT: The offer which is used for the trafficback should be public or affiliates who will be redirected to it should be connected to the offer).
Also (as we already mentioned) you can send all the traffic which is over the daily cap to the trafficback URL by switching on this option (it also works with the individual daily limits you set for your publishers).
And after that all the clicks which are made after you reach the daily limit will be redirected to the Trafficback URL. Screenshot_6.png

You can set global trafficback in the way you want.  You can change the settings of global trafficback and customize the conditions for it's usage.

 For example:
- You can change the settings and use global traffickback URL if offer has suspended or stopped status or it's disabled for affiliate instead of local one.
- Use global traffickback URL if offer is not disabled (for any reason) but there are inappropriate user targeting, overcaps, etcinstead of local one.


Finally, as a small cunning, we recommend you to use SMARTLINKS ( you can read more about them here) with TRAFFICBACK URL. Our smart algorithm will decide which offer to show for each specific user according to many different factors and choose the best one. Also, don't forhet to change pid=1 to pid={pid} in the smartlink to do it universal.
