When you manage several sites they tend to have some good extra traffic that usually goes to the Alternative Out URL. Of course, when you start a new site it usually needs some extra traffic to start properly. the site Overkill feature will allow you to put your network in Overkill mode and feed any of your sites with the extra traffic that your other sites don't use anyways.

Only one site can be put in Overkill mode. When the network is operating in Overkill mode all the sites Alternative Out URL setting will be overriden to send traffic to the Overkill site.
The country filter allows you to setup GeoIP filtering per site redirecting different countries to a place of your chuice.

Alternative Out URL
The Alternative Out URL is the URL where the skimmed traffic goes after all the trades have been paid their owed traffic. This traffic is accounted as outs to the "external" trade on each site. Usually people place their sponsor URL or traffic hub URL as Alternative Out URL.
The Alternative Out URL for any site can be changed at any time using the site edit panel.
Default Filter URL
The Default Filter URL is the URL where the script will send all the filtered traffic that is not filtered by the Country Filter. Make sure that your Default Filter URL IS NOT A PRODUCTION SITE. Take a look at the anticheat and filters section of the manual.
By default this setting points to the CjOverkill development and traffic test servers and all the hitbot traffic is analized for future developments in order to make better the script anticheat protections and filtering routines.
You can change the Default Filter URL from the site edit panel. Just make sure you don't redirect that filtered traffic to some production site.
CjOverkill has 3 trade methods:
- Pure Productivity: This is the default trade method and uses the incomming traffic productivity to determine how much to return to each trade and how fast. This is the most balanced method and the recommended one for established sites.
- Uniques: This trade method only uses the number of unique visitors your trades send you to determine how much traffic to return. This method is very useful for only toplist sites and other sites that don't rely on clicks for trading.
- Overkill: This trade method is very good to make big trades grow fast, but also tends to dump small trades in the way. This trade method was designed to help new sites grow. It's very unbalanced and favors very much the top and good trades while killing the small and bad trades. Use this method with caution on establixhed sites. It was designed as a new site fast growth method and without the needed experience you could damage your trades if you use this method on an already established site with stable traffic flow.
You can change your sites trade methods from the site edit panel. After changing the trade method the site will automatically start using it without any delay.
