Statistics : Too High Number Of Clicks On Banners

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I recently upgrade to Revive Adserver (after OpenX Source) running 3.0.5. on a server with PHP 5.3 and MySQL 5

 

I have now a very high number of clicks on banners, compared to before : hundred times more to be precise (with CTR over 100% sometimes !, meaning more clicks than banners displayed) that sounds not possible/realistic.

At the same time, I have a lower number of impressions (nearly divided by 2). I know I have 100.000 impressions pages per day, with 2 zones... should deliver around 200.000 banners, and in fact i have lower than 90.000 banners delivered.

 

Using local tag invocation code.

 

I have installed all plugins. Their status is "no error" for all of them.

openXBannerTypes     1.2.1     enabled     No  Errors
openXDeliveryLog     1.1.1     enabled     No  Errors
openXDeliveryCacheStore     1.1.1     enabled     No  Errors
openXMaxMindGeoIP     1.2.2     enabled     No  Errors
openXReports     1.5.1     enabled     No  Errors
openX3rdPartyServers     1.1.0     enabled     No  Errors
openXInvocationTags     1.2.1     enabled     No  Errors

 

In banner logging settings, i have only checked :
- (1st) not cheked
- log an impression every time a banenr is viewed and
- log a click every time a viewer click on a banner

- (reverse) not cheked
- try to determine the real IP adress of viewers

 

I have no cron set up but only the current automatic maintenance that says that it is working fine.

It says also that all limitations are valid (after test in delivery limitation).

 

I have put a 10 seconds in the config not to take account clicks from the same user but it doesn't change anything.

 

note that the issue is on banners only; and not on text links (clicks are fine on these ones)

 

Any idea ?

 

Thank you

 

Regards

example of today : 5000 banners delivered and more than 7500 clicks on it ! there is something wrong somewhere but don't know what ! :-( :wacko:

 

i thought that it could be one of the plugin so i desactivated the 3rd party one, but then of course no clicks are counted on the banners that are using an other ad server, but the issue is still going on "my" banners with follish numbers

 

instead of local mode, i've been trying the iframe and javascrip code but it doesn't seems to change anything...

There are no error, only [info] lines

i've looked at the plugin report also, but did not see any error in it.

 

i changed he settings from default to Most Information to see if there could be more info given.

It's a brand new installation (2 days ago) from scratch...  after using OpenX for a long time without issue (and instead of doing a real migration, i've just start from 0).

Click calculation is working fine with the regular text links (issue is only occuring with ALL banners whatever the kind of campaign or banner type)

It's a local invocation tag called by php call directly, so no javascript of iframe.

define('MAX_PATH', '/var/www/site/mysite.com/revive/');
  if (@include_once(MAX_PATH . '/www/delivery/alocal.php')) { 
        if (!isset($phpAds_context)) $phpAds_context = array();
	$phpAds_raw = view_local('', 1, 0, 0, '_blank', '', '0', $phpAds_context, '');
        echo $phpAds_raw['html'];
   }

what do you mean by replacing my files again ?

I tried to use javascrip tag instead of local invocation tag but it didn't change anything.

I did uninstall all plugins and then reinstall them but only 3 : the one for for stats. it doesn't change anything.

The count of banners delivered seems to be correct. but the clicks are still high.

I started again from scratch, meaning resinstalling the whole code from the beginning (clean install), but with only 3 plugins.

Maintenance is now runned as a cron.

 

Issue is still the same ! there are more clicks than banners delivered (sometimes less, sometimes more).

I did install it on an other server and it is working fine.
The only difference I see is the php version : not working on php 5.3.29 but fine on 5.4. Does it make sense ? Or could it be something else than the php version ?

note that when i was installing on 5.3.29, the css was not loading and plugins were not installed by default but needed to be installed manually, despite the fact that the install went well , meaning without error message on the screen.

install on 5.5 is working fine too.

New install, from scratch, with no campaign, no banner, after an upgrade to php5.5. Install worked fine.

But issue is still the same.

There are more clicks than banners delivered on some campaigns, a little bit less on some others.

And delivery, double check with smart adserver, is showing that the delivery count is underestimated : meaning smart is counting a higher number in delivery with a right number of clicks.

How do I know that it is under counting delivery ? Having one banner on every page, set to display every time, I have the same number of banners than the displayed page with smart compared to googleanalytics... When revive is under counting.

I guess it's a server issue with specific library conflict or anything... If someone has an idea where I should look at...

Thank you

I have the same issue.
 
I'm testing the Revive in my site and the number of clicks is very strange.
 
Yesterday, for example, I had approximately 10k pageviews and 1 click on banner. Today, I have 7k and 100 clicks on banner.
 
I also believe that exists some error or conflict.
 
Anybody have any idea?

...any news? At least anyone knows if it's possible to double check the number of impressions and clicks, for example with google analytics?

 

 

edit: I'm trying to record the impressions and clicks as "events" with google analytics, I hope this will give us more clues...

This project is not maintained as it has be, and it's a pity. But i do understand that a lot of people involved in that peoject were doing it on their freetime.

So, I want to thank them for all the work done during all these years.

 

I have been able to make the same code work on a server, and on an other server having crazy results. despite the fact that the php release (5.5), Apache and Mysql being on the same numer of releases.

 

I do suspect now that it's coming from the underlayer Linus; the CentOs release having an issue.

 

note that the phpadnews on CentOs had no problem in the past, meaning phpadsnew having no problem to run on the designed server. But as soon as we try to install, ReviveAdserver, then we had the issue. but phpadnew is not supported anymore for years and has several issues/security flaws. So, I would not recommand to run it anywhere as it could compromise the whole system.

Hi,

We have the same problem with Revive Adserver 3.2.2 on centOS server. We have regularly more Clicks than impressions on several campaigns. Has anybody a clue how to solve this?

thanks

We are also experiencing a unrealistic high count on impressions and clicks

We have previously used OpenX for 4 years. After the security issues we used another ad serving solution for a year. Now we have installed Revive Adserver again and with a Single page call from our wordpress based news sites it looks fantastic. High speed ad delivery and a great system to manage our advertizers.

But the problem is an unrealistic high count on impressions and clicks.

Under Banner Log settings --> "Don't log statistics from clients with any of the following strings in their user-agent (one-per-line)" I have pasted a version of IAB/ABC International Spiders & Bots List (didn´t make any difference)

Now I have pasted a version of IAB/ABC International Spiders & Bots List Banner Log settings --> Don't log any statistics for viewers using any of the following IP addresses or hostnames. 

The version of IAB/ABC International Spiders & Bots List is this one:

Really hope this will do the trick and bring the count on impressions and clicks to a realistic level. Any other suggestions?  Please advice!

The issue is not coming from bots but from the code itself, related to the underlying platform.

I explain.

I did installed Revive under PHP 5.4 on our website, code being installed on the same server within the same domain name (CentOS5), trying to use both javascript invocating code or direct php, and get this stupid amount of clicks higher even than the number of impressions.

I did installed Revive under PHP 5.4 on our website, but code on an other server with PHP 5.4 and same realease of MySql (but different linux) and with javascript invocating code then everything is working fine.

So, the issue is really coming from a "kind of bug" related to the OS itself.

Until now, i did'nt find any solution.

i'm only trying to move to CentOS7 and test it to check if it is working better. but moving to CentOS7 means MariaDB and PHP 5.6, and some code to check before.

Hmm ok thanks 

My problem isn´t an amount of clicks higher than the number of impressions. But "only" a unrealistic high amount of clicks. The impressions looks a bit high too, but might be correct. 

I hope for the Bot list solution in my case.

I have another potential solution for those searching:

Google Bot went to town triggering the click script on a website I manage, despite not doing so on the same site when Revive was on another server.

I figured out what was different: the new Revive install was in the same domain as the website.

It seems Google Bot thought the ads were internal links and that it should check them out, causing a 400% click rate.

Installing on a different domain seems to have fixed the issue. Installing on a subdomain might have the same effect.

Old setup:
Website the ads were show on: example.com
Revive install: revive.oldadserver.com

Dodgy new setup:
Website the ads were show on: example.com
Revive install: example.com/revive

Best practice in my experience:
Website the ads were show on: example.com
Revive install: adserver.com/revive, or at least somewhere the site showing the ads is not.
