    They will only see your website as refferer.People hide cause they use diffrent methods on their website to improve conversations which CPA companies dont like

    I think they can only see the click from your site. They need to access or put the track code if they want to know where the traffic from (which they can't).

    hmmm so why don't people buy traffic.. i've heard there are a few legit traffic selling services that send you thousands of real visitors for a few bucks....you figure a few of those are bound to convert or click on your ads.
