Goto.com has only high quality partners such as
altavista.com, lycos, dogpile ...
Traffic from partners is 100% reliable.
Our company buy traffic on sprinks.com too. We can
say - Sprinks partners othen send to us not quality
traffic. The reason is the Sprinks partners are small
and unknown sites that not to visit the best customers
that prefer altavista and other goto.com partners...
Sure you can see the traffic from goto partners in your
log files Almost 60% from our ppc SE visitors is traffic
from altavista and lycos

The reason is some of your visitors leave your web site
earlier than server software tracks them in log files.
It depends from how fast your site front page opens.
If you use remotely hosted counters like hitbox or
webtrends you should place the tracker code as close as
possible to the top of front page. The difference may be
from 20% to 50%!!!
