    Ok, so I've promoting dating CPA offers through the escort section on backpage. Earlier this year, I was posting my ads with my normal IP address, and using the same debit card number. Ads would be posted all over the US, typically no problem. They would stay up a day or so which was plenty.

    However lately, I've had a really low success rate with my ads. They almost always go up, but 2-5 minutes later they would be ghosted. I write unique ads and titles. I rip off pictures from other escorts, but I change them (use photo editor to change the size, and lighten/darken the picture so that a computer may not detect them to be the same). If I post 3 ads, it seems to be completely hit or miss. Maybe 1 stays but the others go up and get ghosted.

    Here's what I am doing now:

    Using HideMyAss VPN software and changing IP's with it. Using Firefox in private browsing mode with Cookie Monster to not accept cookies from backpage.

    I have an autoreload on the tab I want to see when the ad goes up, and sometimes I never see it go up (however it must have been live for a moment because I got a few responses from it).

    I use virtual CC numbers and generated fake information (bc virtual numbers have no billing associated with them). I also use new email addresses. However lately my ads are like 25% to stick.

    WHAT THE HELL? HOW DO THEY KNOW? These ads cost $3-$10 a pop, and I posted a $7.00 ad, which looks exactly like a legit ad (and for all they know, it could be). I decided to email backpage asking why my ad disappeared and of course they didn't respond. Even twice I did that. Those aholes!

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Maybe I'll try posting without any pictures...then when it sticks I'll edit the ad with the pictures.

    Are the emails you are using typical freemail (gmail outlook etc) or have you set up a catch all email address on a domain you have?

    I am using outlook with multiple aliases...yes. I remember though I know email addresses that are in their spam database won't work. I remember a long time ago I was using the same email and then I could not get to the preview page because an error "There is a problem with your ad, please email support blah blah". Then I changed the email and BAM!

    But what gives? Just because it's an outlook email that may have something to do with it? I suppose I can try and outsource other email addresses. I'm sure many legit escorts have yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc.

    Also besides greed, why wouldn't the system flag a free email or "possible spam" email before the ad is posted and charged to my credit card acct???

    On Monday I'm going to try: another VPN service besides hidemyass, different email address besides the big free ones, delete flash cookies maybe??

    BP is dead. I tried with more intricacies then what your saying and and they will take down your posts. I suggest moving on and stop spamming their site.

    Honestly when my ads stay live I do really good. I just hate wasting $ and time on posting ads that only get ghosted. I'm just curious as my ads are exactly like real ones so

    Name of pic the same? Or same size? Or even same pic?

    Try changing one or rather all of those.

    The name of the pic is the same....somehow I do remember finding a fresh pic off another site (usually my pics are ripped off BP) and posting it and it still came down. Although I did hear from someone pics have a lot to do with their filters in the escort section. Maybe if I get a pic, resize it and rename it....??? I'll try that too.

    Your doing the right thing in trying different variables to discover why things are messing up... It's most likely going to be a 'wait and see' game. Dam annoying though!

    GL!

    Post in cities/states you've never posted in before. Flush your dns, strip your images of jpeg headers, and check for flash cookies, use a different browser. If you still have no luck, try again in a virtualized operating system.

    Hidemyass IPs are almost recognized everywhere these days. Try it out with private proxies.

    What do you mean strip your image of jpeg headers?

    I will try private proxies.

    The thing that gets me is that it seems like these safeguards would PREVENT the post from going up, not being live for 1 or 2 min then going down. Maybe the system scans images or something after the post goes up and they take your $.

    There's software that removes the meta data from images. Some sites like bp may take this data into account and consequently ghost your ads. I use http://www.steelbytes.com/?mid=30

    All your VCCs from the same bank? Maybe they have flagged it. First 6 tell you what bank it's from. Google "list of issuer identification numbers"

    Maybe try posting to a different set of cities? And remember to clear browser (or use anonymous mode).. they could be tracking with cookies or something similar.
