Hi everyone! As you might have noticed, Webvork reviews various interesting things on a monthly basis, whether those are social networks, traffic sources, or helpful services. This article is no exception and today we’re going to tell you how to set up traffic filtering with HideClick. Let’s start with a little bit of intro information, as we usually do here.
Why use this service?
Trackers have always helped affiliates optimize their ad campaign to the max and they also have always helped affiliates workaround moderation systems, such as on Facebook. Weight loss supplements, various creams for increasing that you-know-what, and other tricky products are, unfortunately, forbidden from Facebook ads. So, we have to use content substitution systems in order for our ads to pass moderation.
But trackers can do more than just content substitution or ad campaign analytics, they’re also used to protect campaigns from bots and spying services so that no one can copy your approach. They also protect ads from click fraud and other types of fraud, help run offers’ split tests, and many more. CPA trackers are a must for any affiliate.
Of course, the majority of publishers that work with Facebook use trackers exactly because they provide content substitution and overlook their other very interesting features. We’ve already talked to you about several trackers and explained how you can set up traffic filtering there. It’s time to show you how to set up this system on HideClick. But before that, we would like to note that the service has a 7-day trial period so you can first see what it can do and then decide on whether or not you want to purchase a subscription.
Setting up content substitution
Now, in order to set everything up and test it, we first need to get access to the 7-day trial.
Sign up for the service here – https://hide.click/index_ru.php#start. You need to enter your email and your Telegram account nickname. To log into the system, enter your email and your personal and unique API key.
Next, you’ll get to the dashboard but you’re not all done yet. Now you need to set the tracker to the domain you’re going to be working with.
Click “Download” on the service menu – PHP.
Fill the fields in accordingly:
1. Name of your white page (the main index-html code file was renamed as white.php).
2. Name of your offer’s black (actual) advertising page (the landing/pre-landing page’s index.html was renamed as black.php).
3. Regions that will go directly to your black page.
Go to your domain and set your white page and your black page in there without separating them into folders (in case you aren’t required to change your key files, etc.)
First, set your white page and rename index-html into white.php. Then, set your actual landing/pre-landing page and rename index.html into black.php.
Go down the page and download a file. It’ll be called index.php. You need to put it on your white domain and open it through the code editor.
You need to change “on” to “off” in this code string:
These are the files we must now have:
And now you can follow your domain. If you open it from an IP address of the country that wasn’t on that target list that’s allowed to see the white page when you were downloading the index.php file, you’ll get to your black page.
And just like this, cloaking is set up!
Now, let’s puzzle out HideClick’s interface.
Here, we can see all the stats, just like in IM KLO and Keitaro trackers, just not as detailed. But all the key aspects are here.
We can see the shifts we’ve made while testing during setting the service up. In the “Traffic info” section, you can see that we entered the page 3 times from foreign GEOs, were recognized as a bot or a fraud 3 times, and as “good traffic” twice.
In this section, you’ll see all the checks you paid for your HideClick subscription.
And the last section – FAQ
Here, you can find answers to frequently asked questions. The service also has quick-to-reply support managers that can answer any of your other questions.
So, now you know how to bypass moderation using HideClick.
That was Webvork, may your ad campaigns always bring you profit.
