    I heard that you can tell them that you have issues with other networks stealing your traffic/implementations so you just blank it all now to make sure you don't have to go toe to toe with anyone anymore.

    Yea just say you like to hide your traffic sources because affiliate networks are known to steal them.

    Actually the above reason worked for me and they were ok with it because I send traffic that converts. Now if you send nothing but junk look for problems

    I am not sure what exactly to tell them if they do come sniffing around since I have also sent my fair share of blank referers to them as well. My question is when the hell do they payout? I got a nice chunk that I have yet to get although I heard they usually payout on the 20th. Anyone know when they do direct deposit?

    Yeah all went well and I received my payment with no questions asked. I think the point is not to get too ridiculously out of hand with things.

    may i know how do you blank your referer?

    and, madinaz, do you mean that if my conversion rate is very bad, i would get ban for it?

    i was all the while thinking that i should show my referer.
    so, is it really a good idea to show it afterall?

    You'll have to do your homework on why a referer should be blanked and the various ways to do so. I would say that ideally you would like to show your site as the referer but in some cases this will not be possible.

    yeah .... .

    thanks .... ;)
    done some homework.

    correct me if i'm wrong
    white hat traffic => show referer
    black hat traffic => ehem ..... ;)

    but i saw someone posting saying that now all traffic should be blank because of black hat traffic involved, is this rite?

    Sometimes it would not be wise to show the source of the traffic, hence the reason for the blank referer. If you are asking if all traffic to a certain affiliate should be blanked then it depends on where the traffic is coming from and if the affiliate prohibits traffic from that source.

    oh !!!!

    now finally i got what you meant....

    i was thinking that it was only that black hat traffic would be "blacklisted" by the networks, i didn't thought that the source would also be a problem.

    now that you have mentioned, i recalled that i was kicked out of a cpa network because i promote the product using craigslist .....
    and their reason was to ask me to read the TOS .... :(
