Would like to know as well. Getting a lot of a.marketadsads.com, a.advertiserdigital.com, and a.marketsadvertiser.com. Started pretty suddenly too and like 95% of the traffic comes from these 3 domains now. Wtf is that?

LeadImpact

They used to send traffic from yahoo mail, bing, and other recognizable sites. Now all i see is a.networksmarkets.com, a.advertisements.com, a.marketsadviser.com, a.marketsad.com, a.networksad.com, a.networkstraffic.com, a.advertiserexchange.com, etc etc etc.

These are the referrer domains and this is for both keywords and URLs..

response:

"We have recently implemented a way to identify different sources from where are users are coming from and that is why you are seeing the new domains. This data will help us maintain quality and continue providing you with top converting traffic."

So if you are running and tracking LI traffic with CPVlab (can't speak for other trackers), you should only be seeing these domains.

Can you PPV guys confirm/deny? The silence is deafening in this thread

Yeah...I've been seeing a crap load of these referrers as well over my short stint with LeadImpact, but seeing that I just signed up with them, I thought this was normal. However, for some reason my keywords are not getting passed through the subid variable so I'm not sure what is causing this other than fake clicks.

Since we are dealing with LeadImpact PPV ads here, the referring is never being passed like a banner ad or a PPC ad. Because the LeadImpact impressions are not coming from the website you are bidding on, they are coming from LeadImpact's Toolbars/Software when someone's browser views the website you are bidding. For that reason looking at the referrer doesn't mean too much with LeadImpact.

So you could bid on the URL on Facebook.com, but Facebook is not really showing your ads, LeadImpact is showing them. You ad isn't on Facebook.com at all. So you would not naturally see a Facebook.com referrer.

LeadImpact's software probably injects the referrer as whatever website triggered the pop-up, so you can see it. But it wouldn't happen naturally without LeadImpact doing it.

Now they are probably changing their tracking setup, and aren't currently injecting the referrer. Those domains probably have something to do with LeadImpact's servers.

It is probably a new setup on their side like they said, since also these sub-id passing errors are poping up. I wouldn't worry about for now too much.

Just my 2 cents.
