Toplist cheat statistics.
In cheat statistics hits which cannot be counted as IN for different reasons are displayed. Whether the given hit will be counted as IN or not, depended of anticheat toplist settings.
Our toplist contains a lot of anticheat mechanisms, that makes cheat rather complex and unprofitable. No one anticheat system cannot guarantee absolute cheat protection. Someone can assert, that his system on 100% is protected from cheat, but it will be a lie. Completely protect traffic system from cheat is impossible, but it is possible to complicate cheat methods so, it will be not profitable. Members will not cheat toplist if it will be complex because there are much others toplists easy to cheat.

For cheaters revealing it is necessary to pay attention to:
- quantity of calls from proxies. If the proxy hits exceeds 10-20% probably the participant tries to cheat toplist. It is necessary to pay attention also to stability of proxies percentage. If the participant starts to cheat, the quantity of proxy servers sharply increases and sharply falls at the end of cheating.
- productivity of the traffic (Clicks/Raw). In most cases productivity does not exceed 100%. If a member has high productivity with a lot of proxies and not unique traffic - probably he is a cheater.
- indexes of Partial DFTopCount and Wrong DFTopCount. They should not have the large values. If the member strongly differs from others by these parameters, it also must be cheater.
- Value of hits on the Hidden Link. There shouldn't be hits on the hidden link, only robots can make them. One must know, Search engine bots also can hit this link.
- Correctness of the out link (Wrong Smart OUT link). The out link can be wrong if it falsificated to forge or load page of a rating from кеша поисковика. Values of this parameter should be minimal.
