    WTF ?! I just uploaded a video that was promoting a CPA offer from peerfly on YouTube and my account was terminated.
    What the hell is wrong with these people? Since Google has taken YouTube we can't do anything now..

    Yeah the poster above is right. Were you linking directly from your video description to your peerfly offer? That is no good and will (as you can tell) result in the banhammer pretty quickly. Set up a landing page - it will take like 5-10 minutes.

    This sucks.. It's my first time when I do CPA offers, especially on YouTube (yeah, i've put the direct link in the description). I'm this angry because the account that I've had was 2 years old. Well, from mistakes we learn, from now on I will do as you said.

    Yeah, I was used to the old youtube..

    Anymore advices for CPA+YouTube ? The video is actually pretty well done, but still.. I will make a landing page from now on.

    Sucks the video was well done and account was aged, but live and learn like you realized.

    Make a very simple landing page. Big, bold colorful text like title/subtitle of sales page w/ image related to offer and button "Claim your free $1,000 gift card" or whatever.

    This is good because you will be able to link in description from 1st account then you can alter vid and upload to other accounts from different IP addresses. Lengthen/shorten the vid a few times and you can watermark it and still get type in traffic to your url. Less traffic but some will still type in as well.

    EDIT: Here's a simple AFF lander I found (BTW would you believe I found it while searching for golf tips? Nah, I wouldn't believe that either) that you can use this simple idea for a ton of niches and just include a nice JOIN NOW or whatever button below to make a great landing page.

    Google exists to hose small IMers, this latest type of ban is sad, but not unexpected given its history. It's window dressing excuse is always to 'improve the user experience" but the changes it makes always *just happens* to put a monkey wrench in a marketer's money making model. It's only a matter of time before they settle upon dictating what kind of site the link may go to, and start banning mini-sites. In that case, post the videos on the other video sites.

    Peerfly is a pain in ass CPA network, if they something disallow they really disallow it !
    For example, i have tried to promote one offer via Twitter which is forbidden to promote on twitter and after only ONE click from twitter my account was suspended.
    They are assholes, they should first warn you and then suspend you if you keep doing the same.

    Jerks...

    There are several powerful tools you can use to promote CPA offers on YouTube with no risk at all of having your account shut down, unless you're violating YouTube policies. There were a few threads about new "secret" techniques but it seems without a WSO or somebody selling a service nobody pays attention. That's why you see my videos and others promoting even penny auctions and bizop with no problem at all, but others banned for simple link to lander for email submit in description, when you can just put direct links embedded in the videos.
