    I have a huge problem. I bought 2 content lockers i've found here on BHW. First was bought about a year and half ago, and the other one at the beginning of this year. They work fine, have a lot of options, but they have a HUUGE minus; they slip referrers through. I can say that about 2-3% of the visits are not blanked, which means that CPA companies can see eventually where the visit is coming from, and that i am using content locking for their offers, and get me banned. I've tried numerous alternatives since january, but can't find a good fix for this. I have lost since then more than 10 cpa accounts, and i don't even mention the money.

    I'm addressing here to any other fellow member, who uses content locking, for a hand. I need help in this matter, i am open to ALL suggestions.
    In the right is the referrer column, they all should be "NULL".

    If you incentivize non-incent leads then you will get banned eventually. Even if you were successful blanking referrers, the network can still revoke your earnings for sending them crappy leads. I've had buddies who tried to do this in the past and they eventually got banned even though they blanked referrers.

    Well... that could explain getting banned but not why the content locker itself wasn't working properly. It should be nulling out everything but some visitors are slipping through - I think that's the main issue the OP is having.

    I first used Content Locker Pro, and then Mighty Content Locker. The problem is they both slipped through Chrome visits, without blanking referrer.

    I bet you didn't try to add the offers URLS with spoofed referrer.

    Look bhw around for php scripts like that.

    If you're using MCL, did you go for the Phantom Mode? Spoof your referrer..

    If those bought products are outdated, find someone who can code you, what you need.

    Hi Teranu,

    I thought it might really help to get a reply from an actual CPA Network.

    First off, a network shouldn't ban you simply because the referring URL is coming through. Most credible networks need that for a good portion of their offers.
    In fact, if you are hiding your referring URL, the chances are that you're not going to be able to access premium offers for a lot of networks. Particularly if you're looking at non-incent based offers.

    Think of it as money, if you hide your sources, chances are they're not clean. There's a reason you're hiding them.

    If they are clean, then you have nothing to worry about and should freely share them. Using your own locker isn't a problem at all. At CPAlead we have a marketplace full of different lockers designed by users.

    If the issue is that you're driving incentivized traffic to non-incentive offers, it's going to show up eventually no matter what you do. The reality is that they're completely different.
    An incentive based offer is going to have higher quality and a higher completion rate. This is because the individuals are doing it on their own free will. Who clicks on an offer on their own then completes it only to submit fake or poor data? It doesn't make sense. The opposite can happen more frequently with incentivized traffic. There's just 0 way around it and no matter what you try, it will show on the lead quality.
    Moreover, if hiding your referring URL is bad on incentive offers, you can be sure that its going to be looked upon far worse when it comes to the more sensitive non-incentive offers.

    My suggestion is not to hide it. You'll have a better relationship with the network and access better offers. If its simply that you're using your own locker then that network simply isn't forward thinking. At CPAlead we believe that you should use whatever tools, legit and clean, work best for you.

    Hope that helps you and anyone who was thinking about this topic.

    Peter

    If your content doesn't violate any law why not use a Content Locking network?

    Those tools were created years before any legit network became mainstream so why not take advantage of current trends?

    Killer EPC's are not uncommon with the right traffic sources.

    Keep it clean and you manager will flower you with checks, gifts and even praise.

    I know exactly how to do bad things, but would rather use my manipulative sense for something that lasts longer than a couple weeks.

    Such networks are fairly easy to get into and accept traffic from a wide variety of sources.
