What is Invalid Traffic
Invalid activity consists of any clicks or impressions that may artificially inflate an advertiser's costs or a site's earnings. This includes, but is not limited to, clicks or impressions generated by a site owner clicking on their own ads, a site encouraging clicks on their ads, automated clicking tools or traffic sources, robots, or other deceptive software.
Please note that clicks on Shareaholic ads must result from genuine user interest, and any method that artificially generates clicks or impressions is strictly prohibited by our program policies.
We understand that a third party may generate invalid activity on your ads without your knowledge or permission. However, ultimately it is the Site Owner's responsibility to ensure that the activity on his or her ads is valid.
How Shareaholic prevents invalid activity
Our methodology combines human, machine verification, 3rd party services and process discipline to ensure that quality standards are met.
The relationship between Shareaholic, Advertisers, and Site Owners is based on trust and a commitment to drive business results. We strongly believe that high quality and brand safe impressions ultimately provide the most value across our Advertiser and Site partners.
What is "Pending Verification"
The "Pending verification" amount are earnings that have not been finalized as yet. Typically, earnings are finalized within 30 days after the end of the month. Once finalized, this amount is available to be requested.
