What is maximum hits per hour?

Maximum hits per hour lets you restrict how many hits the website will receive in an hour before the campaign stops receiving hits within that hour and is restarted for the next hour. For example, if you set the maximum hits per hour to 300, you will never receive more than 300 hits per hour. This means you’ll get at most 7200 hits per day because 300 x 24 hours = 7200 hits a day. Keep in mind that this does not mean you will receive 300 hits every hour. You could receive less than 300 hits per hour depending on how much activity the network is getting.

IMPORTANT: Changing the maximum hits per hour setting is not immediate and will take in effect in the next hour. If you wish to update it immediately, you’ll need to recreate the campaign and delete the old one. Our system will only update this setting each hour. You may also pause the campaign and wait for the next hour to resume.

Introduction to the website campaign panel

When you expand a website campaign panel, you’ll see 8 different boxes including a line graph at the bottom. Starting from the top left:
1. Site URL – the page that will receive hits from this campaign.
2. Status – the status of the campaign (active, paused, suspended or expired).
3. Traffic Source – hiding/masking where your hits are coming from.
4. Geo-targeting – whether geo-targeting is enabled or not. If enabled, it will list which countries the campaign is targeting.
5. Visit Duration – lists the duration of each hit from 10 to 60 seconds per hit.
6. Maximum Hits Per Hour – shows how many hits are remaining for the hour. For example, 75 of 500 remaining is the same thing as having received 475 hits out of the 500 maximum. There are still 75 hits remaining for you in the hour. Making changes to this setting will only take effect in the next hour. For instance, if you had 500 as your max but you change it to 300 after receiving 25 hits, it show up as 475 of 300 remaining. You will still use up a max of 475 hits this hour until the next hour begins and the setting is updated to 300.
7. Hits Limit – Displays whether you have a hits limit enabled on your campaign. If enabled, it will show the number of hits you’ve set for the lifetime of this campaign. Once that number is reached, the campaign will pause automatically.
8. Safe for Work? – displays whether the page is safe for work or not. Pages that are not safe for work are ones that contain pornography, nudity or profanity.
The line graph shows how many hits the website has received in the past 7 days for this campaign. There is also the number of hits today and hits total for the website campaign at the top right of the line graph in green and blue. You can zoom in for a more detailed graph by clicking and dragging your mouse. Click the reset zoom button to zoom out again.

How do I increase my Maximum Hits per Hour above 500?

The Maximum Hits per Hour is 500 per website campaign. If you are looking for a higher maximum, you can create similar campaigns multiple times.

For instance, if you want a maximum of 1500 hits per hour for one website, you can use 3 website slots for that one webpage and set each maximum hits per hour to 500.
