Finteza now provides traffic quality details

The advertising analytics service features a new section, which presents the incoming traffic type. Information is grouped by colors for analysis efficiency:

  • Green shows the pure traffic, which includes live users.
  • Yellow reflects visits via proxy servers, VPN, Tor Browser, etc.
  • Red features undesirable traffic, i.e. visits from spam IP addresses or hackers, as well as those trying to falsify request parameters and cookies.
  • Gray color is used for service traffic generated by social networks, instant messengers and search engine bots.

Finteza now provides traffic quality details

These reports can be used as a filter, similar to other data available in Finteza. Do you want to analyze visits from proxy servers? Click on the appropriate table rows and all other reports will also show data for the selected group of visits. Now this data can be compared with any other group. For example, you can analyze pages viewed by the selected groups, triggered events, related UTM tags and countries.

You can analyze pages viewed by the selected groups, triggered events, related UTM tags and countries

If an unexpected traffic increase is registered in a site, it is possible that there might be an external attack. The Quality Report will show a sharp increase in the “Attackers: SSH, Brute-force, DDoS” column, outlining the reason for such an increase.

Attackers: SSH, Brute-force, DDoS

The donut chart shows generic traffic structure statistics over the selected period. The total rating is calculated as an integral variable, which assigns greater weight to green traffic, average weight to yellow traffic, and zero to red traffic. The higher the share of green traffic, the greater the rate.

Your Site Rating

The maximum value of 100 is hard to achieve, but it serves as an ultimate target. If the site rating falls below 80, its traffic structure and sources should be examined in more detail.

You can start using the new report right away. Add tracking code in your site to access automatically structured traffic statistics.

MetaTrader platform developers launch Finteza advertising and analytical service

The system allows tracking of events, managing of conversions and launching of ads efficiently. Registration is open to anyone — the account provides an opportunity to analyze incoming traffic and manage advertising campaigns for free.

Finteza tackles everyday issues most marketing experts, mobile developers and website owners face, during their ordinary course of business. The system collects detailed statistics on user behavior and automatically generates real-time reports based on the collected data. The gathered information helps to more accurately determine target audience and to effectively adjust advertising policies, while inefficient channels are disregarded.

Finteza is particularly advantageous for mobile developers — the system analyzes the number and sources of installations, repeated usage percentages and users' key actions. How do users find your application? How many times was it installed? How often is it opened and what actions do users perform? How many goals are achieved? Answering all these questions enables distributing products cheaper and more efficiently by reducing attraction costs and increasing user involvement.

The service also allows management of the launch of advertisements, both on your own and third-party websites. There is no need to hire IT specialists to perform such tasks. You receive detailed reports on banners and landing page:

  1. The number of people who viewed the specific ad and its CTR
  2. Information on devices, operating systems and browsers
  3. Geographical location and languages
  4. Statistics of separate websites, pages and advertising zones

Finteza has three distinctive features which differentiate it from other popular web analytics applications.

  1. No data sampling. The well-known drawback of popular services is large-scale data approximation. Such services often analyze only part of your traffic, while extrapolating the results to remaining data. This is not the case with Finteza in which sampling mechanisms are eliminated.
  2. Total real-time — you obtain the data with no delays and see exactly what is happening on the website.
  3. Automatic traffic quality measurement.

Create an account in Finteza right now and get a powerful tool for online marketing specialists.
