Can you explain what all these different numbers in my stats are?

You can view your "real-time" stats at any time by logging in to your account. These stats show you where your credits are coming from, how many users you've referred, how many times your link(s) have been shown, etc. Here's an overview and explanation of the stats available ...|
Credits Owed: This is the number of total credits you've earned minus the number of times your link(s) have already been displayed and the number of credits that you have transferred out of your account, if any.
This is how many times your link will be displayed in the near future.
Note: For highly technical reasons, every now and then the system may display your link(s) a few more times than you're actually owed - temporarily resulting in a negative credit balance. Although rare, this is perfectly normal and nothing to worry about.
Links Displayed: This is the number of times that links to your site(s) have already been displayed throughout the TrafficSwarm network. "Deleted" refers to URLs that you have since deleted from your control panel.
Transferred Out: This is the number of credits, if any, that you have transferred out of the account into any other TrafficSwarm account.
Lottery Tickets: This is the number of Lottery tickets you've "purchased".
Total Credits: This is the total number of credits you have earned and/or purchased overall. This figure will always equal the total of the 3 numbers displayed above (unless you have a very active account - see below).
Note: If you have a very active account it is possible that Total Credits and the 3 numbers displayed above won't always be exactly equal. This is because there are so many changes being made to your account at all times, and depending on exactly when you load your stats page it's normal for the numbers displayed to be off by a few credits either way.
Account Loads: This is the number of credits that you have personally earned from loading your TrafficSwarm Start Page, and from visitors to your site viewing the TrafficSwarm Exit Page that you added (no longer available).
Note: This does NOT indicate the total number of times your page(s) were loaded, but rather, the number of times they were loaded and you earned a credit. Remember, you earn a maximum of 30 credits per day just for loading your Start Page, without clicking any links.
Referral Loads: This is the number of credits that you have earned from people that you have referred to TrafficSwarm. For each person referred you receive 100% of their personally earned credits, 5 levels deep.
Account Clicks: This is the number of credits that you have earned from personally clicking on other users' links on your Start Page, in the search engine, etc. (Note: This also includes any credits you earned from clicks on your Exit Page if you used it while it was available).
Bonus Clicks: This is the number of bonus credits you have earned from clicking on other users' links on your Start Page, in the search engine, etc. (Applies only to Pro accounts)
Referral Clicks: This is the number of bonus credits you have earned from your personally referred users clicking on links on their Start Page, in the search engine, etc. (Applies only to Pro accounts)
Transferred In: This is the number of credits that other users have transferred to you.
Lottery Wins: This is the number of credits you've won in the Lottery.
Purchased: This is the number of credits, if any, you've purchased.
Freebies: This is the number of free credits that you have earned for referring other users who have activated their account, participating in various promotions, etc. And sometimes we'll even give you a few freebies for nothing other than the fact that you're using TrafficSwarm!
Total Downline: This is the total number of users in your "downline", 5 levels deep. Users on Level 1 are those that you personally referred, Users on Level 2 are those that were referred by those on Level 1, etc.
"Non-Activated" referrals are those that you have personally referred (they are included in the Users on Level 1 figure) who have not yet activated their account. They are a part of your downline and you will earn credits when they open their browser, etc. you just haven't yet earned 100 bonus credits for referring them because they haven't activated their account yet.
