    So now that Copeac's stopping Incentivized traffic, will it affect GPT sites?

    What if ALL networks close up incentivized traffic??... Will GPT sites be gone? or are the GPT sites OWNED by CPA networks??..

    Just curious on everyones opinion...

    Where did you hear that, and when's it supposed to occur? I just logged into my account and still see over 50 incentivizable offers available to promote.

    hmmmmm, good question

    i was thinking earlier that the future of IM has to be blackhat though

    as humans get more and more advertising shoved in their face they learn to block it out and ignore it faster and faster

    i see an commercial and walk out or ffwd since i tevo'd it
    i see ads on webpages but can honestly say i NEVER click them as that's not why i'm online

    this generation is becoming immune to advertising and i feel blackhatting will be considered white hat within 10 years

    for us who began in the dark ages.... things are just getting started

    I'm not sure what's going on with that thread. But I'll believe when I see it is all I can say.

    Well it seems like that just may happen some day. Because, really, all the companies offering products and services to people want to get paid. And incentive offers are shit for their conversions. The quality service/product should be attractive enough to the customer, other wise i think of advertising in a different place/medium.

    I can validate this, I received a message from Copeac saying they were ceasing all of the incentive activity because of high fraud rates. I've attached the image of the email to this post...

    Yep guys, I made the thread stating COPEAC no longer accepts incentive traffic and will be getting rid of accounts shortly. As you can see the above image proves it.

    Here is a link to the thread I started:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...peac-no-longer-accepts-incentive-traffic.html


    As for your original questions...

    It will only affect GPT sites that relied heavily on COPEAC for their incentive offers. The sites I run us offers from several networks, this is the best way to go if something happens like announced by COPEAC. You will only have a few offers affected rather than the majority.

    My only concern is, they better pay me my money even though I did not meet the minimum payout. I emailed my affiliate manager to confirm I will get paid...Otherwise I will be pissed even though it is little money they owe me, it still belongs to me.

    Hahah... yea..

    I definitely just got the email too, about 5 minutes ago, that's why I decided to bring up this thread again...

    Copeac is stopping incent traffic.... but it's not gonna affect GPT sites, they work directly with the advertisers ( in some cases ) instead of through CPA networks....

    Changes are coming, hope they're for the best.

    Code:
    To make sure you get all communications from COPEAC‚ please make sure to place
     us in your address book/allowed list to guarantee that you don't miss out on important 
    updates from us.
    
    Hi XXXXXX,
    
    I wanted to take the time to let everyone know about some changes to Copeac that will 
    begin taking place today. In our effort to provide the best service and experience to our 
    affiliates and clients we have begun to make some major changes to Copeac.
    
    Early this week we announced that we will no longer accept incentivized traffic. In our 
    opinion the incentivized model is flawed and opens up the door to fraudulent affiliates, poor
    quality traffic, and it' counterproductive to our mission of providing advertisers and affiliates
    with the best quality traffic and offers possible. In order to make a better Copeac experience
    for all, we have decided to no longer accept incentivized traffic.
    
    Later today when you visit Copeac.com you will see our newly designed site, but most 
    important is when you log in to Copeac you will be presented with an entirely new interface, 
    menu, and experience.
    
    We are still on DT but we have worked the system to provide more key information on the
     log in page as well as quick links to sections of the program that affiliates go to more often.
    Please take a look at the new site and provide us with any feedback you have, if we can do
     it we will make it happen. The changes inside Copeac came from each one of you, please
     don't stop giving us suggestions on how to improve your experience.
    
    We are also excited to announce the launch of the Copeac Leaders Section. This is a separate
    section of Copeac that is only available to high volume producing affiliates that we have met
    personally. Copeac Leaders will have access to some offers that the rest of the network can't
     ee, Leaders will also get first crack at popular offers prior to their release to the rest of the 
    network. In addition Leaders will have exclusive invites to events and shows (such as the party
    at the palms this year http://www.copeac.com/PalmsParty2009/) a different bonus program
    than the rest of the network, no wire fees, faster payments, priority on IT and Design requests
     and much more. To learn more about becoming a Copeac Leader please speak to your AM.
    
    In addition we will be launching our "Show us Your Berries Contest" which has 50 Prizes with the
    top 3 prizes being, a weekend getaway in a private villa in the Caribbean, Mexico, FL, or Cali for
    you and 3 friends, Second place is a Las Vegas trip for you and 3 friends or a romantic getaway
    for two to Napa valley, third place is membership to an auto club that will drop off a car of your
    choice (Ferrari, Masseratti, Lambo, etc) to your house for your own personal use and enjoyment. 
    There are over $50K in prizes, and the contest runs Jan 15th through Feb 28th. This contest will
     end on Feb 28th. Ask your AM for details on the contest and what offers qualify for the contest.
    
    I would like to thank everyone for helping to make Copeac one of the best networks out there, and
    for being a part of our explosive growth. Your loyalty and business is very much appreciated.

    Nah, all that incetivized offers provided was an opportunity to show your referrers with little fear of consequence. You can still bank off of CPA companies with/without these types of offers. You just need to brush up on your game a little now.
