Exclude traffic sources

You can determine which of our our publishers and sub-publishers send traffic to your site, by including the $$src$$ and $$subid$$ parameter into your URL click. You can then evaluate these values in your own statistics. Sources can be disabled on account or campaign level in the user interface. You find this option under 'Campaign Settings or 'Account Settings' » 'Source Inclusion/Exclusion'. Simply enter the publisher and/or subpublisher codes to block individual sources.
