    I'm currently an affiliate with a dating website and i've been looking into email scraping and mass mailing as a means to distribute my affiliate link. I found an email scrapper and I'm currently reading on the mass mailing part of the deal. I was wondering whether you guys could shed some light on some questions I have.

    Do i need to use proxies during the scraping? I saw this being a suggestion in many threads and i didn't find an explanation as to why using proxies is better or safer.

    And a last question directed to the lads who are experienced in promoting dating site affiliate links.If i amass a hefty amount of emails, how many sign ups should i expect out of let's say, 10,000 leads, supposing my emails are targetted well enough? Vague question i know, I am just looking for an estimate.

    Most dating sponsors will not allow email traffic. Better to send links to landingpages imho.

    Really?I'm sad now..I guess i should take more time reading the sponsors TOS before spending time reading up on methods. Thanks a lot infoasian.

    mailing is a pro game. with scrapped u'll be lucky if you get 100 leads even and signups he he just waste of $ if u do without proper thinking.

    Yeah,you will likely get banned from the dating site with scraped emails,it only takes 1-2 guys to complain for spam and you out
