GTS service WarriorPlus Redirects Not Allowed Share This

GTS service WarriorPlus Redirects Not Allowed

Redirect URL, hop links, 3rd party URL, Short link URL and any other URL except one that lands visitors on the web site directly without passing through an intercept, redirect, cookie bot or similar has not been allowed from day one.

In June, we reminded everyone that all web pages being promoted by a GTS service needed to be GDPR compliant and privacy policy compliant and Advertiser Terms has insisted upon this.

Redirects allow the redirecting 'redirect' to dump cookies without permission on every visitor's device as they pass through the redirecting URL. In affect, each visitor flash visits the redirections' website before being redirected. However, the visitor does not get the opportunity to choose their privacy before the flash visit secretly loads tracking cookies without consent. Additionally the visitor does not see privacy or know what information is being collected, stored and used. An example of this type of redirect is WarriorPlus who do exactly as stated above. 

Depending on your GTS service's targeting using a WarriorPlus redirect also can make your GTS non compliant for GDPR and privacy policy.  If your GTS targeting included countries like the UK, the whole of Europe or any country in Europe for example, then your GTS instantly became non compliant for GDPR and Privacy Policy compliance requirements and breached the Advertiser Terms. Why? Because WarriorPlus is a redirect. All visitors visit their site first before being redirected. On visit WarriorPlus installs cookies without permission and privacy policy on every device visiting from the UK and European country which is illegal.

Hop links of course are redirect links as they land on a WarriorPlus page to load cookies without permission before hopping to the affiliate program page. Hop links are another name for redirect.

To use WarriorPlus affiliate programs in your GTS service, you must request a direct link from the landing page after redirect which will avoid the loading of cookies without permission. Then you would need to check the affiliate program has the following compliant features:

  1. GDPR cookie selector popup
  2. GDPR compliant privacy policy

If it does not, then avoid compliance requirements by adjusting targeting to USA only minus California and minus Virginia. To do this you would need to add the remaining states one by one to your targeting. Now your WarriorPlus affiliate program is compliant as your GTS service is not responsible for any further GDPR or Privacy requirements when visitors leave the affiliate program page and checkout via the WarriorPlus checkout page. The entity that is responsible for this problem is the affiliate program and WarriorPlus.

Be aware that GDPR and Privacy always favors the visitor, not the business and therefore needs to be compliant with the visitor's home laws. To avoid issues with GDPR exclude visitors from certain countries and states.

Test Your GTS service for Compliance p1 Share This

Test Your GTS service for Compliance p1

1.1 Does your URL redirect?

If the URL used in a GTS service does not contain the domain name of the page it opens, for example (a) GTS URL is https//gas.com/aff=12982 opens web page https//oil.com/12982 makes the GTS not compliant. Check the domain name in your GTS is included in the page that opens. If not, you’ll need to change your GTS service before compliance reject it. To change URL, go to step 2, edit, edit URL.

2.1 Is your URL correct?

If the URL opens a page that is a 404, dead link, redirect on land, red herring page, rotator, clickbait, not found or any other page that does not sell the 1 product/service you have described in step 4, makes the GTS not compliant. Check your URL opens a page displaying your 1 product/service and there is a button to add it to cart/checkout or join instantly. Do not land in the cart. Do not land on login page. Do not land on home page unless home only displays the 1 product/service and button. To change URL, go to step 2, edit, edit URL.

3.1 Does your URL land correctly?

When the URL is clicked, if it opens a form or page that requires to be completed with any details before the visitor can proceed to the transaction, makes the GTS not compliant. If the visitor is distracted or delayed by any other pop-up requirement except cookie permission, makes the GTS not compliant. If the main point of the land page is to move or send the visitor to another page in or out of the URL original domain other than a checkout page/cart, makes the GTS not compliant. If the land page is a webinar, video, or other media or a page without a buy now, add to cart, checkout, join now link to complete the transaction described on step 4, makes the GTS not compliant. If the land page is predominantly links out to other products/services, makes the GTS not compliant. Check your URL lands on a page dedicated or predominantly showing the 1 product/service you have described in Step 4. To change URL, go to step 2, edit, edit URL.

4.1 Is your URL privacy and GDPR compliant?

When URL is clicked, the page that opens must have a privacy link clearly linked from the page in clear sight and not hard to see. The page must be privacy compliant with your targeted audience for example if your GTS targets Europe then the privacy policy must provide the level of privacy required for European visitors. Privacy has nothing to do with where the business is located or hosted, it is all about who can join/buy from the business/page. If you target Europe then the site's privacy must match the data law of the EU. If you target Australia, then it must protect Australian visitors and if both, both must be protected. GDPR is the same as privacy. Cookie permission is the same as privacy. If in doubt, target each state of the USA except Virginia and California. To change targeting, go to step 2, edit and select edit audience.

5.1 Is your URL targeting compliant?

If your business does not sell, deliver or sign-up Americans, you must not target the USA. If your business only caters to German, French and British, do not target Worldwide. If your business only sells in Canada, do not set the GTS to target any other countries. If you set targeting to more countries than your business distributes to, it will not pass compliance. This should be changed if incorrect by going to step 2, edit and select edit audience.

6.1 Is the URL owner compliant?

If the URL in your GTS is registered with an affiliate program in someone else’s name it will fail compliance. If the affiliate link in your GTS is not yours, it will definitely fail compliance. If you own the business and you are not the registered owner of the domain name, it will fail compliance. If you are not the legal owner, you must change the URL. To change URL, go to step 2, edit, edit URL.

7.1 Is the URL Step 4 compliant?

If you have not described the 1 product/service in step 4 description, it will fail compliance. If step 4 describes more than one product or service it will fail compliance. If step 4 describes your business or generic service/s or products or a brand or range instead of 1 product/service it will fail compliance. If there are 3 packages of the product or service for example 1, 2 and 3 bottles, step4 must identify the number of bottles, its contents, the USP, what it does, size and how the buyer benefits from the bottle. If more than 1 plan is available, identify the one you are selling and name it and describe what it does etc. The price of the product/service must identify the 1 product/service on the land page. The net profit/commission must be how much you get paid for selling the identified product/service. If your step 4 is different to this, it will fail compliance. We rely on you to accurately, clearly and honestly describe the 1 product/service in step 4 to enable our AI and systems to locate it and use its description to create a sales process to sell the product/service. If you have not, it needs to be changed. To change step 4, you go to step 2, edit and then click edit guarantee.

8.1 Is the URL gender compliant?

If your 1 product/service majority or only sells to females, do not select male or both and vice versa. Do not target other genders for upsells, cross sells, click baiting, switch sells, future sales. Your gender targeting must be exact for the 1 product/service described in step 4. If gender targeting is incorrect, it will fail compliance. This should be changed if incorrect by going to step 2, edit and select edit audience.

9.1 Is the URL age compliant?

If your 1 product/service majority or only sells to 45-60 years old like a medical plan, do not target under 45 or over 65 as it is not compliant. Do not target other ages for upsells, cross sells, click baiting, switch sells or future sales. Your age targeting must be exact match for the 1 product/service described in step 4. If age targeting is incorrect, it will fail compliance. This should be changed if incorrect by going to step 2, edit and select edit audience.

10.1 Is your advert compliant?

The advert's wording in headline and body fields must relate to the 1 product/service being sold in the GTS service step 4. It must not click bait or advertise another product/service or the company/supplier. The images loaded to the advert must be relevant to the 1 product/service. Images are optional. If the advert does not promote the 1 product/service that is described in detail in step 4 and priced in step 4, the GTS service will not be compliant. To change the advert’s headline, body and image, go to step 2, edit, edit content.

11.1 Is your affiliate program compliant?

If you are linking your URL to an affiliate program of any type or own your own affiliate program and offer it to others to include yourself, the affiliate program must publish terms and conditions of the program and a commission tariff publicly on the website listing the commission values, types, structure, when paid, refund policy, how paid, permitted countries of operation and exclusions to include age restriction.  
 

If we have further advice/tips on compliance it will be posted in a news post p2. If not, we will not post p2.

Why is 5B Compliance So Strict About People's Privacy? Share This

Why Does 5B Care So Much About People's Privacy?

See the Digistore news post and then return here to read the following information:

  • You have a redirect URL in your GTS service.
  • Your GTS service advert is published in our browser network.
  • The advert targets 'people' who use our browser that match the audience you have set-up in the advert Wizard.
  • Our browser user sees your advert, clicks it while using our browser and has a secret illegal tracking cookie installed on their device without them knowing or permission. 
  • The illegal cookie starts sending data packages over the Internet without the knowledge or permission of 'our browser user' however sharing their personal data that should not be shared.
  • The 'browser user' is your possible customer, future asset and 5B browser user. You and 5B have become parties to breaching their privacy.
  • This will not end well.
  • Your business will earn a commission while the browser user's privacy is breached and 5B will earn 34% of your profit while the browser user has had their privacy breached.
  • This will not end well.
  • Visitors to your GTS are our browser users and we are responsible for them and their data security directly after they click your advert

We will not permit our 'in browser' GTS service Advertisers to jeopardize the safety and privacy of our browser users to earn 34% of your profit. We are better than this. We will not be a party to this type of activity.

Our compliance is strict to protect people like you, and not to make our browser users data mules or victims of data theft.

Standard Advert Update Share This

Standard Advert Update

We stopped selling advertising on August 1st 2022.

We sold advertising only. Advertisers bought Standard Adverts just like Google adverts. All adverts bought directly from us are Standard Adverts and subject to Advertiser Terms (subject to terms) upon order and payment. Advertisers are allowed to upgrade their Standard Adverts to GTS service on Step 4 of the advert creation Wizard. The upgrade from Standard Advert to GTS Service is free however, Advertiser must agree for the second time, to our terms of agreement (Advertiser Terms) to upgrade to GTS service for free. GTS service is a business to business partnership not a one-way service. Advertisers must provide a business model that is legal, legitimate and lawful in the countries being targeted by their GTS service. Advertisers must be able to manage their own business, know their own business and be fully transparent when linking their GTS service to their business. Their business must be associated with their 5B account name and address. Advertisers must know how much products and services of their business sell for and the commission or net profit they earn for the sale.  Advertisers must know the marketplace for the product or service they are selling and target only that marketplace to country, age, gender to match the business model they are promoting/linked to from the GTS service. GTS services must be set up to promote compliant businesses and/or make their GTS service compliant if the business is not by restricting targeted countries and states of USA to achieve compliance.

  • GTS service can be downgraded to Standard Advert by compliance if a breach of contract occurs which could interfere with generation of profit and affect Profit Share of 34%.
  • Advertisers can opt to not upgrade their Standard Advert to GTS service and remain standard.
  • Advertisers can self-downgrade their GTS service in the Advertiser back-office to avoid the rules and compliance that govern the use of and associated with GTS service.

Standard Adverts act like Google Ads. There are no rules except you cannot link to illegal, illicit or content for example (logical); drugs, self-harm, hate, porn, abuse, firearms, weapons, child abuse, etc.

Content of Standard Adverts can be changed any time and the URL to target can be changed too.

Standard Adverts can be used to promote any online or offline thing whether it generates profit or not. There are no rules, you can sell, sign-up, rent, send visitors to a restaurant, event, shop... Anything.

To get the best from your Standard Advert (SA), you must optimize it to help the AI system that is looking at your advert content and website just like SEO and Google Ads.

Advertisers must update their Standard Adverts (SA) with changes as they happen on their target site/location.

SA have a life of 12 months or 1 million visitors and 5B will repeat or extend to achieve the target of 1 million visitors.

Adding keywords to step 3 of the advert wizard is essential. If you have not added keywords and optimized your advert with text descriptions in step 3, this will adversely affect how soon your SA starts to get seen by the audience you've targeted the advert to, it will delay and slow down initial and future content crawls by AI and slow the demographic building. 

Add keywords, watch the results, change keywords and monitor.

From 21/1/23, you will get monthly notices from now to inform you of underperforming content of your advert which should be updated according to AI feedback. The notifications will also inform you when to stop changing your advert.

Note: By changing the URL of your SA will slow down/start the building process of the targeted keyword visitors for your advert. The more times you change the SA URL, the longer the advert will take to perform. 

Tips:

  • Add keywords
  • Target your advert's image to what you are promoting
  • Make a detailed description in step 3 about the business and what is being transacted
  • Select the correct objectives
  • Narrow target audience to achieve refined visitors from countries and languages.
  • Narrow and remove redundant ages from age settings.
  • Narrow the gender for the advert if only suited to one.
  • Use advanced targeting of audience to refine your reach to only people that match your requirements.
  • If you select worldwide, expect non English speaking visitors as a majority as generally there are more in the audience. Refine audience to better your results.

LOW NUMBERS

f you are experiencing low numbers, please revise your advert, reducing the description to be less descriptive about other things other things and more on point about what you are promoting. Remove fluffy words and description and use keywords especially from the meta tags and description of the target website that is above the keyword inserter tool. Keywords are words or phrases that are used to match your ads with the terms that people are searching for. Selecting high quality, relevant keywords for your advert can help you reach the customers that you want, when you want. Words or phrases describing your product or service that you choose to help determine when and where your ad can appear. The keywords that you choose are used to show your ads to people. Select high-quality, relevant keywords for your ad campaign to help you reach only the most interested people, who are more likely to become your customers. When someone searches on Google, your ad could be tagged to appear in the browser based on the similarity of your keywords to the person's search terms. Keywords are also used to match your ad to users in the Browser Network that are related to your keywords and ads. A great keyword list can help improve the performance of your ads and help you to avoid higher prices. Poor keywords can ultimately cause you to have higher prices and lower ad position. You can add match types to your keywords to help control which searches your ad can be matched with.
