    Yes it will. Spamming blogs with your hoplink will get your account suspended for violating CB TOS. Any commissions accumulated will go "POOF" in thin air and be taken as liquidated damages for the offense. Therefore, don't do it if you care about your account.

    Email spam or directly spamming your hoplink has a high likelihood of banning. However spamming blogs which then in turn advertise clickbank products has a lower likelihood of banning. Clickbank is actually pretty loose when it comes to "aggressive promotion" - I think they just have so much volume and so many webmasters that it's easy to get caught in the mass.

    However, ALL programs can and will ban for spam if you get too many complaints, so it's just something to figure into your strategy. You spam at your own risk.

    Stay away from Peerfly like the plague if you are doing any kind of spam, they are zero tolerance assholes.

    Unless you are a good spammer that makes them money...and therefore makes you worth the hassle of the complainers. LOL

    I wouldn't suggest that. Seriously.

    I know a few mofos whom received those spam comments (with the spammer's clickbank hoplinks), they were so pissed that they actually report it to Clickbank via email.
    Clickbank replied and told the blog owner that they have SUSPENDED the spammer's accounts since they do not tolerate spamming (as it ruins their reputation, bla bla bla).

    Makes me wonder, what if you spam your competitors product-site and then let several people email clickbank about it?

    Yes it isn't ethical, but what if someone does this TO YOU?

    In addition to what everyone else said, CB vendors dislike spammers. You give everyone else involved a bad name and you have horrible conversion rates to boot. Why bother?
