    Okay, well I'm getting tired of the same newbie questions getting asked over and over daily in new thread's here on BHW, so thought I'd answer a few FAQ's and list some helpful links here to help people get started. (And hopefully it'll stop people clogging up the forum with shit threads).

    This is a follow up to my previous thread about ensuring you get paid (which covered junk traffic, faking the referrer etc):
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...g-you-get-paid-your-blackhat-commissions.html

    What CPA Network Should I Use?
    This gets asked everywhere, and it doesn't matter if you're an international affiliate or not, if you know what you're doing you can get into ANY CPA network.
    There are a tonne of good CPA Networks, but the ones I would personally recommend, and who don't seem to monitor BH traffic very well are:
    NeverBlue, COPEAC, Azoogle, CPAStorm, Clickbooth
    Always stick to a large, reputed company, or you risk the company going under, or dealing with a dodgey company and not getting paid.
    Network's using DirectTrack help, since you can check the referral stats to ensure the referrer isn't leaking.

    Getting into a network isn't hard. All of these work:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/cpa/32247-cant-get-accepted-read.html
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/cpa/48403-how-get-cpa-account-its-not-hard.html
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/cpa/24712-how-i-got-accepted-every-cpa-company-noob.html
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/cpa/17845-how-guarantee-acceptance-into-cpa-companies.html

    This CPA Network is Shaving My Leads?
    Eh, good CPA Networks don't shave leads. Shaving is caused by Advertisers reporting less leads than they actually received, and the majority of the time it's got nothing to do with the network itself.
    I get sick of hearing things like 'MaxBounty shaves email submits like crazy' and such - and the thing is their advertisers probably do, and the reason they do it is because of our Blackhat Traffic is absolutely rubbish to them on the backend. (It's ironic that people who send absolute shit leads to networks, then come here complaining they're getting screwed).
    Send a network 100 leads to an email submit, and none of them convert on the next page, of course they're going to shave, so STFU and stop complaining and mix in some WH leads or use a method that keeps the advertiser happy as well.

    When Will I Get Paid?
    Most networks pay NET15, so earnings you earn in January will get paid to you on February 15th (and the check may take up to 2 weeks to arrive). However any good network will pay you weekly, but the threshold is normally $1k/week in commissions.

    I Need $XXX By Next Week?
    Use the fucking search button, or browse here for the threads to make money.
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/search.php
    No ones going to hand you everything on a silver platter, but that being said making money online is piss easy with a bit of effort. See below for some recommended threads.

    What's The BEST Way To Make Money?
    There is none. IM is made up of so many different ways to make money, and there's not set formula. There's email marketing, media buys, ppc, ppv, blogging, bum marketing, article marketing etc etc
    But if you're a newbie and just need some quick cash, a good place to start is with free method. I recommend buying two domains to get start with, and some hosting and then you're set. (One WH domain to fake the referrer to, and one BH domain). If you don't have a cent to spend to get going, try making free blogs.

    Where Do I Get Started?
    If you're new to Blackhat the most important thing you need to know, is that the majority of time if, if you get caught you won't get paid. It is blackhat after all.
    So you need to cover your tracks. Check out my thread about the basics of faking the referrer here and covering your tracks here:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...g-you-get-paid-your-blackhat-commissions.html
    Once you've got the basics down, THEN go looking for a method to make some money.

    If you just want to make a hundred bucks or so, Yahoo Answers is a good place to start, find a CPA Offer, and spam yahoo answers, and you're bound to get a few conversions (there's some spamming software available on here so search for it).

    Realistically anyone who's willing to put in a bit of time implementing method should be making at least $50/day. If you browse this forum, and don't make a cent, stop procrastinating and implement an idea.

    Here are some good methods, that are ALL proven to work:
    (none of them are written by me btw)

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/youtube/2343-how-make-1000-day-exploiting-youtube.html

    Not to mention there's tonnes of other free ways to make money, on various other sites, just use your imagination. And of course there's also huge money in Whitehat too, the problem is most ideas require a bit more starting capital (particularly PPC, PPV and MediaBuys), so make a few grand with any of the ideas above, and then start to venture into larger projects.

    Good Luck... not that you'll need it ;).

    If this thread was useful to you, Thanks and +Rep is always appreciated.

    Good resource but if you follow back some of the threads, a few of the methods got over saturated and near dead unless they get a new twist.

    Nice post, but there's one question I still have - what kind of upfront cash is needed, to kickstart this? Say, if I'm looking to get to about 1k/week on a steady basis...

    The OP covered this in length, most of these methods need no upfront money to get started with, as you build capital you re-invest into tools to scale it up further
