    I have a fairly simple set up where I drive my traffic via a blackhat site, then to my wh site that has the all important banner on it.

    Email traffic---> BH site ---> WH site with banner that they click on.

    Can the CPA network in any way find out about my WH site or know where the traffic for my WH site is coming from?

    Ok, so the banner is on my WH site, and they can tell that my traffic is coming from my BH site?
    Are you 100% about this?

    Use DMR and they can't tell.

    If they are clicking on a link on your whitehat site, then there is no way they can tell the traffic came from a blackhat site before that. You can't see the referrer from two sites back.

    The only way they might find that out is if they check on incoming links to your whitehat site. Which I can't see unless they are certain you are screwing them over somehow.

    Fantastic, I thought as much. If I could buy you a drink I would. Saved me a lot of trouble having to implement DMR (which I don't belive is 100% safe anyway).

    How would they check out the incoming link to my site? Surely they shouldn't be privy to the inner workings of my WH site

    There are sites that allow you to see what sites are linking to yours. Not sure how accurate they are. I do know that they often miss a lot of them.

    I would think this is nothing to worry about. The AM would have to be convinced that you are doing something shady and out to find something.
