    Im using Blackhat Codebreaker 2, blanking referer, and using some well known CPA compaies. My question is - what are the chances of getting banned? Surely the email submits wont be very useful for them as people are only filling them in to get access to the site. Has anybody had problems with this method of making money?

    If the script uses a double meta refresh then it will not leak. Personally I use a fake referrer when advertising CPA offers with such a method and use non-incentive offers.

    I know it wont leak :) i'm sure just curious as to whether they will ban us or not as the leads wont convert very well on their end.

    (i suppose this is where someone chimes in with throw some whitehat leads in there too)

    I use BHCB version 1. I set the window timeout around 3-5 minutes. Then I tell users to choose an offer and fill it out. Once they have completed the offer then the screen will automatically unlock.

    The extended window timeout usually will make them go at least a few pages deep to try and get the window to unlock and also makes people think that the gateway actually does know how much of the offer they have filled out.

    I find that my conversion rates stay relatively low still I assume because people don't want to fill out an offer to get the incentive. When an offer starts getting too high of a percentage I throw junk traffic into my DMR to lower it.

    I have been doing this for about 4 months now and have not been banned. Although, I also don't make enough money on any 1 network to really tip anyone off either.

    I've noticed on chrome with my own tests that double meta refresh doesnt like working, so id try and keep it to faking the referrer.

    Some good tips - cheers spellbinder! I've upped the timout, makes sense really. True also Xyon81 about Chrome not liking DMR's, due to YouTube being owned by Google and the fact YouTube is plastered with Chrome adverts i think it's a good idea to make them all fake referer, one of those things i've added to my list. Right enough BH time for some mixing :p :biggthump

    bhcb has the ability to blank the referral, and if that fails, you can fake the referral.

    just look in lock.js and turn on the hide referral or whatever option to TRUE.

    you wont get banned if your leads are crap, but you can sure that your am will be looking into it, also they will ask you not to promote the offer that has the crap leads

    I don't use Blackhatcodebreaker btw but i've coded up something that seems to be exactly the same from everything i've read. I was going to put in a blank referrer thing but like i said, chrome hates it, so i added in a fake referrer thing, theres a free script for it around here somewhere .

    Yup i suppose you can turn Blank Referer option OFF and then have your affiliate link as your CPA Redirector link, that should work, yeah? :p

    I would use CPA redirector. Codebreaker version 1 has a feature for blanking the referrer but it leaked like crazy, version 2 supposedly fixed that problem but the only way to find out would be to try...and if its no fixed then your screwed....

    Plus faking ensures that your AM is happy, blanking usually raises flags.

    Cant see how it would leak, as although it is obfuscated source code you can see it just uses a DMR to blank the referer.

    Either way i've changed them to landing pages now ;)

    from what i was told, he fixed that problem a while back, guess not?

    anyways, from what i hear, v3.0 is suppose to be coming out sometime this week. Hope there are many more features added since the prices are apparently gonna be bumped up.

    It is suppose to be coming out this week from what i am told.

    "The only features I can reveal at the moment are random-ad-rotating, geo-targeting, and background-image (all set up as options). Other features are still confidential."
    "Before 8/10. Less than two weeks, for sure."

    that is what he told me when i e-mailed him

    Will the bhcb v3 have the fake the referral feature add on? So that we can choose either blank the referrer or fake the referral. Thanks

    Hi Guys,
    I'm Brad, of BHCB. I'll try to answer everything you asked.

    First - regarding leaks:
    BHCB V1 did not have any referrer handling at all.

    BHCB V2 added DMR hiding (among other things). Besides DMR It also verifies that the referrer is actually blocked, and if not (such as with chrome) it sends traffic to a fallback link you give. There are no leaks.
    That prob was fixed long ago - about 2 weeks after BHCB V2 was launched. And that too didn't give a leak.

    V3 will arrive very soon. A bit later than 8/10 - probably next week. I decided to fix the WP issue before I launch the new version, and since I'm a WP virgin this thing's a drag.

    All users will get V3 free of charge (lifetime updates). And if you're still using V1 or the "just launched with small bug" V2 - holler send me your transaction details and I'll send you the latest (and stable) V2 for now, V3 when it comes out. (That's if you purchased from me, but if you bought V1 from Imran I'll give you a nice discount on the updates)

    Cheers,
    Brad

    PS -
    Regarding the OP's question - between all customers BHCB has accumulated well over 100 usage years. So far - not even a single report of getting banned. There have been a few reports on shaving, but cetainly no more than would be normal without BHCB.

    Brad, could you make any code that accesses content from the Internet visible?

    Hey,
    You're barging into an open door. That's the way I think too, and that's how I started out.

    However - too many ppl abused this, and started copying. Others tried to find loopholes and yet others asked me to hide the code.

    End result - I hid the code. Sorry about that, and adds overhead on releasing versions, but that's how life is, I guess...

    Brad
