    i have some YouTube videos averaging 1000 views/day and i am trying to use CPA email/Zip offer to monetize them. so my question is : is it OK for the CPA networks to bring YT traffic to my blog to do the CPA offer? if not how to hide these traffic and with what method or tools?
    Thank you very much.

    well, the most simplest method i do is go to tinyurl and mask your original aff link, then i use bit.ly and mask the tinyurl link as well - this hides the refferer as far as I'm aware.

    You also can use cpa redirector to hide your referrer, search the forum for it.

    how about this scenario : get to the 1 page of Google using Article marketing-->free traffic to your blog or website---> use content blocker to complete your CPA offer ---> back to your website.

    is there anything wrong to this method?

    if you're using the link in the video caption, people will have to type it in anyway - referrer will be blank. If you're using it in the description of the video, you'll have to do DMR or use CPA-redirector.. both explained multiple times here at bhw.

    edit: oh and by the way, .tk domains are perfect match for captions..plenty of good free domain names there still.

    And nothing wrong with the scenario you said, if you're using content blocker, you'll have to use incentive offers or then do DMR again and come up with a plan to water down conversions or a good explanation why you can't tell where your leads come from :)

    if i choose an incentive offer, i should be OK with this scenario . how much i have to earn do you think to stay under the radar network to avoid the manual review?

    That does not hide your referrer.

    So all your doing is getting traffic from youtube?

    You don't need to "stay under the radar" unless your doing something blackhat...

    Ask you AM about youtube traffic, he/she will most likely give you the go ahead.

    Youtube traffic is not BH, provided you are not being deceptive. So that traffic is fine with us. You need to check the campaign descriptions individually because some merchants might not want that kind of traffic and you still have to follow the rules for the campaign (i.e. most ringtone campaigns don't allow the word "FREE").

    So no need to hide/fake referrers.

    Traffic from youtube is OK with networks usually, but you never get conversions ( atleast from my experience ) . Try it out, hopefully it will work, but the people have to be really interested in what the offer is offering or the conversions will be in the toilet
