    Hey guys,
    I have just started reading about CPA, and I'm interested in content locking.
    I have read around that when you are drawing traffic from places that the AM doesn't like it can make the CPA Network to not pay you your revenues, is it true?

    Lets say I'm driving traffic from cars niche and I use content locking on a picture or a video, the requires a form or an email submit to view the content.
    The traffic is mainly driven by Google, If the AM sees that the niche is not related to the affiliate category, can it harm my site/my CPA membership/revenues?

    Thanks guys!

    A lot of networks will hold your earnings if you are doing content locker traffic if the offer is NON-Incentive.

    1st Q: Yes that is true. They have the final verdict on your payment.

    2nd Q: No. This is essentially what content locking does. It just forces the people to do something easy like an email/zip submit in order to see your page. You can usually customize which offers you want in the content locker, but anything completed will be credited.


    But yeah man CPABeyond is the shit. I love it and the atmosphere is friendly dude. If you got any questions about it feel free to PM me.

    So content locking is called a "legit" way?

    Content locking can be legit: there are some CPA networks who offer content locking as part of their service, but there is also "illegitimate" content locking where non-incentive offers are used as incentives or for example copyright content is involved. If the CPA networks see that you are using methods like this they will not like it and have the right to refuse you your earnings. Luckily we can get around this by faking/blanking referrers so the networks will not see where you are really driving traffic from. Either they see no referrer (hence blanking) or they see a nice legit white hat site (hence faking).
