    I'm new to this field and I've a question: why do we need to mask or blank our referral sources for CPA and PPD offer, what do we gain from doing such thing ?

    I understand about the terms between publishers and the network, if you spam at places that do not allow advertisement you can be banned and everything, but if you advertise there and blank the traffic referral, won't they put a question on how did you get your traffic source ?

    For example I'd make a website about recipe and lock it with CPA, thus I went to Pinterest to get traffic to my site, will that be a violation unless I hide where I get my traffic from ?

    Thank you :p
