    I just got accepted in to a few cpa companies and I see this message....
    when is someone abusing social media? and do cpa companies (that allow incentives) not allow traffic from for example youtube commenting?

    How do you get around this (do you for example use a custom content locker or so)? or isn't it as bad as it seems?

    Thanks for your answer !

    Abusing social media means eg. In Facebook, putting the CPA links on other people's wall or mass messaging them with CPA links.

    I misformulated my question....

    I've seen people here using social media in a creative way that may be considered abusing social media... But they seem to be making money, apparently these cpa companies don't really mind? or are they using a special method?

    blank/fake the referrer is a no-go these days as far as amazon and similar affiliates is concerned

    Then faking the referrer is easy enough, just blank it then redirect through a domain you own.

    Not that I do any of that, it's much much easier and sustainable to drive leads honestly, rather than spending all your time looking over your shoulder.

    Alright I will be the one to give the obligatory "It is called BLACKHATworld" so bending the rules cleverly to gain leverage is a quintessential part of the essence of blackhatting wouldn't you say?

    It depends on how strict the CPA network is, some really don't care, as long as they make money
