Keitaro 9

Keitaro 9 is available now!

Meet our new user interface, faster performance and a great number of additional features.

More Convenient

We tried to get rid of all the inconveniences in our interface. That’s how our new campaign settings page looks like:

As you can see, everything is at hand.

QR-code can be taken right on the campaign’s page:

Bookmarked streams are easily added to any campaign:

We made using filters easy:

Now the tracking script code is universal for all landings inside a single campaign. There’s no need to add a separate code for every landing now:

You don’t need a file manager for landings anymore. Just upload a zip-archive with files:

Note, that an offer link (LP Code) is in the same window now.

You can add several domains separated by commas:

Tried to make campaigns’ testing easier:

Faster

We did a great work on the performance. Redirects work 2 times faster, the memory load is 7 times less than earlier.

A comparison of Keitaro v.8 and Keitaro v.9 performance inside the same campaign:
  • Keitaro 8 for 10 000 queries: 19.264 sec. 31147 RPM. 0 SQL queries, 61MB
  • Keitaro 9 for 10 000 queries: 10.125 sec. 55945 RPM. 0 SQL queries, 8MB
The measures were taken on a VPS configured with 4GB RAM, 2CPU, SSD.

It’s easier to manage big bots IP lists. The size of the list doesn’t influence the performance speed.

And there’s more…
