Hi there! Many people made their first green numbers when majority of affiliates didn’t have to overthink cloacking as much as now. It became more difficult to earn same amount of money, as we used to do with pop and redirect traffic. It’s not only because of the new Chrome updates, and new ads placement rules of Google, but also because of bot traffic, spy tools, in particular, Adplexity. It’s one of the most modern spy tool in affiliate marketing.

Arbitrageurs working with pop and redirect traffic are doing their best to tests and search of profit links, but competitors know how to surf your ads or Adplexity bots would post your landing pages or your domains on its service which can kill all your efforts in the shortest time. You shouldn’t be afraid of trying new solution which we made for you. If we speak about such function as integrated landing along with useful tool you can significantly add you a few dozens of percent to ROI. It won’t guarantee you 100% but it’s really possible that your links won’t be found.  

What is That Service?

MagicChecker is services helping to protect your ad campaigns against bad traffic, competitors, spy tools, traffic source moderators, advertisers who are ready to monitor your ad campaigns.

What is the aim of this service?

Picture it, you will find a good offer + landing + source and launch it on your pop- traffic. Your ad campaign works with +200% ROI, but there is high possibility that after a while you would find your landings in spy services. If affiliate has enough resources and experience, he or she will have no trouble finding your ad campaign and coping your profit links. In such case your advertising campaign will get little ROI.

MagicChecker Tool Development

Originally MagicChecker service was developed for the internal team and it was used privately during several years. Service was launched in December 2016. Currently it is on high demand through affiliates in the all verticals.

This is one example of the product presented on the market. On that can be any cloacker that you want, for example, FraudFilter or self-made solutions set against defined traffic sources, bots, moderations.

In this article you will get to know how to configure and use MagicChecker through the example of Binom tracker. Working with Binom you can use MagicChecer without redirects to services. Tests showed that variant without redirect effective in terms of traffic lost and conversion.

Money page is your real target page you want to show to your potential users.

Always turn Extra protection on, this is the secret technology of the product developers helping to increase the chance of cloacking.

JS Magic Filter is additional protection Magic Filters. If you experience problems with PHP filters, turn it on.

Turn this filter off, if you experience problems with Adplexity.

Luminati filter protects you against the best proxy network in the world.

Devices

You can choose which you want to get on your landings.

ISP/Organizations


How can we use this configuration? Check in your tracker which internet providers are beneficial for you. And allow only them for your traffic. Thus, you will get bigger protection.

The same way you can block some Internet providers. For example, if you know that traffic source moderatos use specific internet provider to trace your creatives or if you infringe work rule with them.

IP List


You can block only users of selected ranges IP.

Advice. If you know IP-addresses or IP ranges of moderators, competitors, advertisers you can add them to rule. They will be able to see “Safe page”.

How to Set Up Integrated Landing in Binom Tracker

1. It’s necessary to download index.php file and send it to the archive for integrated landing creation.

2. Then you need to create folder and make archive out of it in zip file.

3. Download archive with index.php file to tracker as integrated landing. (No-redirect)

It should come out as it shown in the example.

Next step is to go to a server where you store your landing. You will need FileZilla. You have to find folder with downloaded integrated landing on server.  Then you need to download your landings Money page and Safe page. The main is to place index.php to the same place with your landings.


Let’s be back to MagicChecker. We need to defined paths to our landings. Don’t forget to add .html at the end of the link.



After we define all links with our landings, we need to create campaign in the tracker with our integrated landings.

You should set up status “under review” or do it manually after moderation.

If moderator or network manager come into your advertising campaign he would see Safe page. We set limits of ad campaign impressions as 500 impressions, further Money page will be shown.

You can check in this video an example of configuration. I used already finished campaigns but the main point of a configuration is clear.
