How does the Link Box affect my TrafficSwarm credits?
Posted by Steve Little on 17 June 2010 09:14 AM
The short answer is that it doesn't affect your credits in any way. Because it is not technically possible to prevent 100% of cheating, no credits are deducted from your account when your links are displayed in the TrafficSwarm Link Boxes around the web. Likewise, you don't earn credits from the Link Box either.

It is just too easy for cheaters to simulate real page loads and/or clicks. Tracking IP addresses, cookies, etc. is NOT effective as cheaters can easily send requests from any IP address they want. Any system that relies on tracking IP addresses as a way to "prevent" cheating is faulty - users get cheated.
