    I was wondering what the limit is for ad networks using black hat methods. From what I understand if you're using adsense it's very easy to get your account banned if they detect black hat methods, so I'm wondering if there's a limit or if it has to be white hat all the way. I use SenukeX, Scrapebox, and various other methods for my main site (not affiliated with ad networks and not intended to), but I'm also now interested in possibly building a PPC website and trying to figure out a good strategy that will work for me.

    Thanks in advanced

    The problem with affiliate sites is that they're paid by the advertisers based on the number of leads that convert. if all of your traffic is blackhat...most of the leads won't convert and the affiliate network will wind up canceling their payment and banning you. There is no strict limit per-say...you just need to have a significant portion of your leads that will convert. There are a lot of posts throughout the forum about the correct ratio to have...and speaking to an affiliate manager about expected follow-through ratios will help.

    Basically, you can have as much blackhat traffic as you want as long as the follow-through ratio doesn't suck or wildly fluctuate...(read: if you don't get caught.)
