    info on traffic sites

    Hello

    I wonder if anyone can answer my question, please. I purchased some targeted traffic from a site that was recommended by a legitimate source.

    I see from my own server logs that there is indeed extra traffic. BUT when I check the ISP addresses, they come up page not found.

    Is this normal? Is there a way to check and see if these visitors are even from English US sites. And should the ISP addresses on my server logs match the ones on the logs the traffic company gives you?

    Thanks for your help.

    Try contacting the company. There are lots of companies that send you fake visitors, and this may be one of them.

    What are you using to check the ISP addresses, and which addresses are you checking?

    Are you checking the actual host of the visitor, or just the domain of the ISP?

    Are you checking something like dialup_10773.east.someisp.net
    or someisp.net?

    How do you check them? I'd be interested to know.

    answer to checking

    Hi

    The way I am checking is this:

    On my server logs, I have a scetion called "host server". So I assume the hits are not the actual domains of the sites from where the visitors cam, but rather the server where they host the site.

    But I would think you could find the server since my own and other servers are able to be found by their numbers.
    So in my browser, I type "https://209.862.158.789

    I just want to see that there is something there. Maybe I am doing it wrong.
