    Hi All,

    Just wondering, as I have just implemented a method where I have iFramed the submit form for an offer I am promoting to see if I can get it to convert better.

    My website is highly targeted to the offer, and all traffic is legit (organic, white hat).

    In this scenario, is there still a necessity to blank the referrer?

    I always blank or spoof the referrer.

    why?

    Because right now its converting.... but in a couple of weeks it might not.
    and then yo want to go BH.... and they are going to notice that all of a sudden
    you are blanking your traffic.

    so blank it from the beginning and if they have a problem show them... then blank it again.

    also .. i have seen some affiliate managers tell their friends what other converting affiliates are doing and where they are getting the traffic.

    basically stealing your method.

    so I blank.

    Even if you have 100% legit traffic, its always a MUST to protect your traffic source.

    Why?

    Because if you don't, They'll steal your profitable campaigns.

    Like people have said in the past - "If you have nothing to hide, tell the truth" or something like that. Sometimes people have a problem with blanked / faked traffic, some don't the majority don't though.

    If the traffic is in fact targeted to the offer, why IFrame it? That in itself won't convert for the advertiser, even if you are iframing the first and second pages.
