    Hey guys,

    I need some help explaining something. I was doing something similar to the craigslist cell phone method... But what I was doing is sending people to 3-4 different offers from a CL ad and telling them to fill out the offers to test the website. I then used the CPA direct (with WordPress) to bounce the traffic off of. I didn't send a massive amount of traffic and I did water down the traffic somewhat so that the conversions didn't spike up too high. But today, a about a week after I stopped running the thing I get a message from my aff saying that my account has been terminated.

    What do you guys think that they found? Similar ips?- since I forgot about that part of it. Or something else entirely? I just basically want a couple of ways I could deny it with the aff.

    Thanks

    Ask your AM why your account was terminated. (Then tell us so we don't make the same mistakes.) There are way too many possibilities for speculation.

    You just need to ask them the reason. If you're using a BH method, you can't be too surprised that you were banned.

    That is one of the problems I have with BH and WH for that matter almost any form of IM has been done to death, and the AM's get PAID to know what tricks webmasters have up their sleeves.

    Sux though!

    Oh yeah... I forgot to say... if you were sending people straight to your "CPA Redirect" from CL, you ought not do that.

    It's a tough lesson to learn, getting a good account banned or losing a lot of income but, it IS a lesson.

    I never say never, buuuuuuuuuuuuuuut... I NEVER put a live link in a CL ad. Either a graphic with the URL in it (crappy method these days) or, make then email you for more info, then give them a link to a site that redirects to your CPA redirector that redirects to the offer. Like building a house in the arctic, you can't have too much insulation.
