How to Schedule Campaign with TrafficBot

TrafficBot.co dashboard is very powerful and flexible to use. Because of its flexibility and configurable features, users might need to go through a gentle learning curve in order to become familiar with it. With this article, we’ll explain each configurable option and provide some examples to configure a few most popular campaigns.

Configurable Options

  • Pageview Balance: This is the active pageview balance or credits that you still have in your account. You can create a new schedule with a target pageview equal to or lesser than your pageview balance
  • Send Pageviews: The target pageviews for this schedule. If you are setting a repeating schedule (Repeat daily, weekly, monthly), each repetition will have the same target pageviews. For example, by setting 1,000 as target pageviews for a daily schedule, our system will send 1,000 pageviews to the site every day.
  • Label: A field for you to label this schedule for future reference
  • Base Url: The starting URL that TrafficBot visitors will visit. This is usually the homepage of a site. Depending on your bounce rate setting, the visitor will further visit other internal pages that it can find from this Base Url.
  • Delivery Mode:
    • Accelerated: TrafficBot will focus on delivering pageviews with your configured bounce rate, as soon as possible
    • Standard: TrafficBot will try to deliver the pageviews as evenly as possible across your schedule’s Start and End dates. If you have long Start End dates but few pageviews to deliver, your configured bounce rate will be ignored.
  • Frequency:
    • One-Time: The schedule will only run a single time, within your configured Start and End dates, with your configured options.
    • Daily/Weekly/Monthly: The schedule will repeat the whole same process again in its next iteration. For example, you’ve set a Daily schedule which Start on 1st February and End on 2nd February. The end result will become like below:
      • First run: Start on 1st Feb ~ End on 2nd Feb
      • Second run: Start on 2nd Feb ~ End on 3rd Feb
      • Third run: Start on 3rd Feb ~ End on 4th Feb
      • Repeat until Final End Time for All Repetition
  • Start to End Date (*For First Run): If using One-Time schedule, this is the start and end dates of it. If using repeating schedules (Daily, weekly, monthly), this is the first run’s start to end dates. The next iteration will repeat again with the same Start to End duration.
  • Final End Time for All Repetition: When running a repeating schedule (Daily, weekly, monthly), you need to specify when the repetition should stop.
  • Timezone: Your schedule time is following the timezone that you set here. Default to UTC time.
  • Geo-Target: Location where your pageview source should come from. Multiple locations are supported.
  • Device: Device which your visitor should use to visit your site.
  • Referer(s): (Optional) You may set multiple referrers (Example => https://www.google.com) each in a new line. One will be randomly picked for each visitor.
  • Bounce Rate: Overall bounce rate by this schedule. 100% means all visitors each visits 1 page only. 0% means all visitors each visits more than 1 page. TrafficBot will try to deliver pageviews with a bounce rate close to this value, but may not exactly same, especially when you are using Standard Delivery Mode
  • Max Child Visit: How many internal page the visitor will browse before leaving. Each visit equals 1 pageview. Applicable only when Bounce Rate is set < 100%.
  • Max time on page: How much time the system will wait after viewing a page, before going to another page, or leaving.
