    Hi Guys,

    So i am using a network which does not allow commenting on YouTube videos, but when i do it, it is not a link so obviously the user has to type in the traffic!

    I put my link as xxxxx . co . uk/tv/cc (whatever im using)

    Will the network ever know where my traffic is coming from? And if they ask, what shall i tell them??

    Sorry if it is hard to understand .. il try to clarify:

    I spam my link on YouTube comments >> My link forwards to CPA Offer >> I Get paid!

    That is against the CPA networks T.O.S, but obviously the link i spam on youtube is not clickable so the person has to type my link into the address bar manually! Because of this, the network will see my traffic source as type-in traffic .. my question is, is there anyway they can find out that i am spamming youtube with comments??

    If not, and they ask me what my traffic source is: what shall i tell them?

    No they will not because there will be no referrer.

    He means if for example he tells his users to copy and paste: link.com/affiliate into there address bar to visit that site if the CPA network will see where the traffic is coming from.

    Yeah I get your question now. No referrer as Checkmate said.
