Type-In Traffic is considered to be any visitor/surfer that was not redirected through an affiliate's link, and as a result has not had their hits/activity tracked or gone through standard tour pages.

NATS Admin

NATS4 allows tracking of Raw and Unique hits that come from Type-In traffic and have gone through a Default Track Link. In order to view Type-In traffic, you must select Type-In for the Program when generating a report.

If you would like to track all Type-In traffic's Raw and Unique hits you will need to set up a re-direct script at the beginning of your Site's Tour pages.

The following is an example of a simple redirect script you could set up to do this:

<?php
	if(empty($_REQUEST['nats'])) {

		//redirect through track

		header("Location: " . <track URL>);

	}

The track URL for Type-In Traffic can be taken from the Site's Admin, listed under the "Default Join Form Link". However you will need to edit it, so it goes through a track link and not to your join form. For example:

Default Join Form Link:

<linkdomain>/signup/signup.php?nats=<?=$_REQUEST['nats']?$_REQUEST['nats']:'MC4wLjEuMS4wLjAuMC4wLjA'?>&step=2

You will want to take out signup/signup and replace with /track, and remove the _REQUEST['nats'](since the redirect script will do this already). Then you will want to take out the &step=2 so it does not go to your join form. Lastly, remove the rest until you are left with the following:

<linkdomain>/track/MC4wLjEuMS4wLjAuMC4wLjA

You will need to repeat this for additional sites you want this redirect.
