    I do hope that isn't your real stats as epn does monitor this site and so does some of the losers on their forum.

    thanks, happy to see new fresh ideas out of the box, but this sounds a bit not good
    basically i am saying i am spamming people

    what if i say i send traffic from google adwords cheap coupons....
    low frequency keywords...

    but landing page is only banner this means google wont accept it
    and i pay too high price for each click
    and epn knows that

    so perhaps to make a better looking landing page more text content
    ....

    convince i get adwords traffic for example ratio ROI 50%
    100 GBP spent 100+50 GBP earned....
    should work?

    Just tell them you have a banner on your site and you buy traffic through PPC. Tell them you get a ROI of 50% like you said, should work.

    Ive heard of people being just saying they don't want to give out their methods in case someone tries to steal them.
    Don't know how well that will go over with ebay though ;)

    adwords is allowed as far as i know you just can't bid on "ebay" as a key word.

    you can use adwords to direct traffic to your site, just not direct link to ebay. (also can't bid on ebay).

    so can epn actually see the source of your traffic? like if you get traffic from your site from classifieds? i don't think they can but just want to be sure.

    epn can only see who clicked through a link to their site. They can't go back two sites. They also can't see what traffic your site gets. All they can do is look at back links and alexa and the other inaccurate ways.

    Tell them you get traffic just like everyone else. From the Interweb.

    No but seriously just email them back and explain that you would rather not give your information up as people may steal it but then explain if they are able to sign a non-disclosure agreement that it would make you feel more comfortable.

    I don't care if its white hat or black hat, giving away sources is a bad idea.
