    Im about to start an affliate program and I believe I can do about 2-5 sales a day starting out by posting on CL. Im very new to this and I have been reading a little about junk traffic. I assume I will need this to make everything look legit so its a good thing to get junk traffic. Will posting a second fake ad on craigslist generate enough junk traffic for me or is there something I should purchase to get more traffic? I was thinking of posting an ad on CL of something that is really hot right now to get them to click my link.

    you don't need junk traffic you just need to hide your referrer as most affiliate compaines frown upon craigslist traffic so it can get you banned.

    The thing is .. I didnt explain in full detail how I will be marketing through CL but basically 1 out of every 2 people that clicks my link will probably be a sale. Its not like Im going to post ad on CL with my link and forget about it. Im marketing a little different. Im just using CL to help. So with that being said ... I should have junk traffic right? If so .. can you go back to my original question? Will posting a second fake ad on craigslist generate enough junk traffic for me to not make things look suspicious? btw affiliate is with CJ.

    I think I may be confused .. if I use double meta resherer, does it matter if my conversion rate is high or low? If it does matter .. I WILL NEED junk traffic because of what I know my conversion rate will probably be around. I know this is a noob question but thanks for who ever is helping.

    I will just go ahead and buy junk traffic if I need to because they seem cheap.

    You can always throw up some youtube vids to dilute your conversion rate. It usually doesn't convert very well.
