Ask a question:

My Network Reports Show Less Clicks/Views Than My Stats In CPV Lab

Solution If you notice a discrepancy between your CPA Network stats and CPV Lab stats that you are NOT being billed for, the issue is most likely bots.

You can't turn off the bot reporting, but you can block the bot's IP address.

1) Use the Visitorís Stats within CPV Lab to try to identify the specific IP or IP range these visitors are coming from.
2) Then add that IP to the blocked rules page.

Note: Keep in mind that this won't prevent bots from visiting your pages. It will only prevent from showing the clicks/views in your stats.
