This is driving me crazy...

I have some idns that are getting great url forwarding stats at Domainsite, but getting very little views at ND.

Here is an example:

Four days at domainsite: 151 visits

Four days at ND: 4 visits.

Can someone please offer an explanation for this disparity? The above example is an Arabic idn with xx,xxx overture.

Is this unique to that name, or consistent across many names??

I won't say many (that I am aware) but definitely not unique. The above is a recent frustrating example.

Re: This is driving me crazy...

Do you have a server you can point the name to?

A bit of a hassle, but you can find out for sure.

Probably due to bots that namedrive filter out. I've a name on ND with 200 views a day, so ND can't be manipulating high traffic names.

You have to get your arabic name indexed to get more traffic.

Domainsite may not bother filtering traffic for bots etc as they don't really have any need to.

ND try and filter out the bots to avoid paying on bot clicks.

Nope, the best I can think of is to forward the idn to a low traffic domain that I have listed at Sedo.

In my experience that is too big of a disparity for a bot, but saying that I am not the familar.

Re: This is driving me crazy...

The important static would be clicks. I used to get much higher traffic before ND banned the bot, but hardly any clicks. Now the traffic is lower, but overall the clicks remained the same.

Also, I don't think Sedo allows forwarding of traffic to parked domains.
