Are CPA networks very wise to blackhatters?

    I'm reading through the stickies and I really would like to give CPA marketing a try (it seems like the most successful people around here do it), but it makes me wonder - I'm sure thousands of blackhatters sign up to CPA sites using exact or similar information given in the stickies and I was wondering if CPA networks have bulked up their examination process since the stickies were written?

    Thanks

    Yeah they have over time, you'll probably get a few more detailed questions, just sound like you know what your talking about, too many BH'ers call them and they haven't got a clue what their talking about and they sound nervous, it's a job interview (More or less), you can't act nervous. :p

    this is a public forum, what do you think? if you found it so can they.

    just use your head with the methods outlined on this board. aff networks don't care about BH stuff (with the exception of maybe CJ) so long as what you're pushing converts for the advertiser. make the advertiser happy and everyone will be happy nine times out of ten.

    The biggest thing for CPA networks is getting legitimate conversions... If you can send them quality traffic they may ask a question here and there but if you send them shit traffic that doesn't convert, prepare to be hammered.

    In all of my experiences if you send them "crappy" traffic you get removed from the offer (occasionally!) , simple as.

    There's a difference between:

    SHIT traffic - iFramed Email Submit
    Crappy Traffic - Incentivised iPhone submit done by a kid who probably wants an iPhone anyway

    People are making good money with crappy traffic lol

    That's good to know. I figured for a second the Aff networks were the ones who cared most because they had the responsibility of hiring credible advertisers.

    A little extra question - how well are you guys doing with CPA? Do you think it's one of the better ways to make money online? Obviously blackhat CPA isn't a miracle money method, but I've seen quite a few success stories regarding CPA.

    I never knew the owner of AzoogleAds (which I considered the most WH of all) - Alex Zhardanovsky - was a notorious spammer. I literally lol'ed when I read that..

    Bottom line is they won't boot you if the traffic converts well for them [unless they get a complaint]. They're only spending money on you if they make money off you.
