    I talked with my AdscendMedia affiliate manager, and I asked her about cracks, serials and keygens, is that allowed.

    She said it is not allowed. Then I asked her why someone can use file gateway with hacks, and I send one link to her as a proof, and she told me she don't see adscend media offers there and they don't allow hacks.

    That link I send to her as a proof is older than a month.

    I don't know why she can't see the offers, but I see them and all offers are from adscend media.

    And if you search
    Code:
    lnkgt.com
    on youtube you will find almost 9200 videos promoting hacks,keygens, serials and even porn.


    I wanted to use adscend media with my crack,serials and keygens site and I'm not allowed to do that.

    But a lot of people do this.

    I understand that they can't find everyone immediately who is breaking their tos, but there is like 10 months old file gateways.

    What do you guys think about this?

    Well then that answer is not TRUE because one of their biggest publishers which is SC are doing the same stuff how do i know ? at early stage of my cpa i use to work with them and i had done the same stuff so if they are denying this then they are probably lying about it or just do not want to talk about it.

    Fucking failure.

    You are not allowed to do it, but you can do it anyways. You're supposed to do it so that they won't find out, and this is what being black hat is all about.

    Protip: Cloak your links.

    And when they ban you, you don't open a topic here whining and complaining about how "shitty" they were for booting you. You learn from your mistake(s), fix whatever caused them detecting you and do it again.

    Game hacks are very different from cracks/serials/warez. Game hacks are ok (but not anything related to piracy, eg no-cd cracks, whether or not those are technically illegal or not).

    I will look over the youtube results and delete some lnkgt URLs for sure.

    I can't comment on pushing serials and keygens specifically, but in my experience Adscend is pretty lenient. Of course, they would probably boot you if you brought in too many complaints or the traffic didn't convert for the advertiser, but they're all about the $$$. Which is fine by me. :D

    I did not get banned from Adscend Media, I just asked affiliate manager about this. I'm using other CPA network.

    Mostly I'm doing whitehat, promoing non-incent offers.

    But I have one cracks/serials/keygens site with huge amount of traffic and I wanted to try it with Adscend.

    Then tell that to affiliate managers.

    She told me hacks are not allowed, I even send her the video I found on youtube and it was game hack, and she told me it's not allowed.

    Lol these cracks are against copyright you know. I don't really see why you would not be allowed to promote some hacks and such for games which some people even sell. ( not their copyrighted work though). Maybe she wan't sure even herself about the situation. Better safe than sorry.

    No one should wait an official confirmation from CPA networks that they say of course , gladly , with pleasure you can use copy righted stuff to promote our offers..No , no one will confirm this. But this doesn`t mean you will be banned asap when they catch you...

    I've been a publisher since a long time with Adscend now and I'm in constant communication with a number of AMs and the founders as well.

    First off, Jeremy up there (he's one of the founders) cleared up the point about game hacks. Game hacks in the sense that it brings you more "in game" gold, "super units", "God mode" those stuff. If by game hack you mean something that would make a trial version of the game full, then no it IS NOT allowed. And in that case it'd be a "crack" not a "hack".

    With regards to being banned or not when using illegal content, they cannot be everywhere but believe me when they find out they delete your gateway and inform you. But this happened to me as I was running a gateway on copyrighted material long before they introduce the strict copyright policies. Now, I'm not sure what they'll do but they might ban you right away when they find out. Best rest assured they DO something, they do not give it the cold shoulder...lol (from personal experience)

    As for your AM saying it isn't allowed, my theory is that you squeezed "game hack" in with "cracks, keygens, serial":p So she got confused and just said no. I'm sure if you would have been clearer she would have said OK as Jeremy outlined above.

    Bottom line:

    Copyrighted material = Big no with them
    Game hacks (as in a cheat, gold..etc) = OK

    Hope this helps a bit.

    I think the guy here does not deserves us to take for granted that he was banned and that he is now whining about it.

    In facts, it turned out that he was just asking the question first hand to his AM to avoid a future ban.


    With that said, the answer he received from his AM does not surprise me.
    My AMs, both at adscendmedia and Blamads, can barely tell the difference between a weblink and a pair of shoes :D, they have no idea of how their APIs or content gateway work, they respond with copy&paste to questions they had no clue of.

    So I am not surprised she did not recognize a linkgt as their own link.
