    They told me my account is under investigation and they need an answer within 15 days, they want to know how I drive my traffic, what I answer please?

    I just have a website and I use IFRAME Blackhat methods, I can show them the legit website but what can I say them? What would be a good answer to have all the leads paid?

    Please help me.

    It depends largely on which advertising methods are allowed by the advertisers you promote.

    You can probably get away the easiest if you say that you've done either emails or PPC, but if neither are allowed then obviously those won't work.

    Please bryanon wait here a moment
    I check

    it's really important for me

    I tell you what's allowed, I have a website ok? it's legit...
    but how can I tell them I drive my traffic there?

    They wrote:
    "Please explain in detail how do you promote advertisers in our network and how do you drive traffic to your site."

    Can you give me a good answer well made?

    This is what they don't allow:

    Search Campaigns - Prohibited SEM Display URL Content
    These are terms that publishers are prohibited from using in the display URLs of search marketing campaigns

    Firstly, it should be none of their business how you drive your traffic to your site. Do you have an AM? I suggest having a serious conversation with him/her and play the cards around so that you would be the 'victim' in this case, not them.

    But if you want to go ahead and send them the explanation letter then you can say pretty much anything - the bottom line is that there's no way for them to check if your statements are true or not. Say that you do PPC, say that you promote it offline or hell, say that you buy advertising from a marketing agency and you have no idea how they're promoting your site!

    But for future reference - stay away from CJ whenever you can :) There's plenty of better networks around ...

    The answer is good even if

    "

    These are terms that publishers are prohibited from using in the display URLs of search marketing campaigns "


    It's ok? PPC and Advertising from marketing agency ?

    They will ask for an example if you say PPC most likely.

    My advice is to start up a quick campaign to show them, CJ does not like you telling them you won't show examples because of previous AMs stealing your ideas. You can try it if you want, but they are the one network I always go the "yes sir" route with them.

    With CJ ts important to know that they dont allow blank referrers. What is the referrer showing to them or have you blanked it. CJ ban with blank referrers

    You could try telling them that you used email marketing by emailing to a mailing company's opt in list. You can say that you bought traffic and emailed their list with your offers. There are a few people at DP that sell traffic where you write a small advert with your links in it and they email to their list.

    It seems as though he has alraedy replied to them, going the PPC route.

    OP, sounds like your only option here is to do a little brainstorming, establish a couple of keywords and ads for your legit site and launch a sample adwords campaign which you can show them.

    How much money do you have on hold anyway?

    To others - this reminds me why I chose to stop promoting CJ a while back. The AM asking me about how I get traffic to my website is simply ridiculous and I don't think anyone should be forced to put up with this kind of requests ...

    You are at BHW, in the CJ subforum....LMAO ..Dont you think for a second that CJ has at least one person browsing this section in the forum??!??!

    And you are copy pasting their exact reply and everything? You wanna get banned or something? They can track your account in like 1 second when they see you are trying to lie to them...
