    I noticed alot of you are using the wordpress plugin which redirects you to your CPA offer, and are sending junk traffic to that "magic link" to lower your conversion %. However you all keep many banners and creatives on your page to make it seem optimized for the offer.

    Wouldn't this give the CPA companies information on how many visitors you are recieving per day to the site? If they see that they are getting lots of converting traffic on their landing page, they will check your referrer, find your site, and notice that the ads themselves are recieving little to no impressions hence little visitors

    Little visitors to your site, yet large traffic to landing page.

    Your banned.

    The only thing i see around this is to place banners in the header. Iframe your landing page in the footer with 0 width and height, and send junk traffic. Impressions on banner go up, landing page visits go up, and thus your conversion % goes down.

    Or am i way off?

    You can host your own Banner, or send the junk traffic to your actual whitehat blog without the magic number link so that the banner impressions go up

    That makes the problem worse. Example:

    0 Impressions, 260 clicks, 10 conversions
    250 of that was junk traffic, 10 was your BH traffic which converted of course.

    They know people are coming from your site, yet your CTR is 0 since your creatives recieve no impressions. They know something is up, and will question why you are hosting just the JPG and not allowing them to view statistics.

    How about creating a plugin that iframes the landing page with 0 height and wigth every 10 visitors. 10 visitors being junk traffic of course. This would naturalize your CTR to 10%. Not bad.
    ---

    Send 10 BH traffic to your landing page

    0 impressions, 10 clicks, 10 conversions= 0% CTR, 100% conversion

    Now send 1000 junk visitors to your blog, with a plugin that iframes the landing page every 10 visitors.

    1000 impressions, 110 clicks, 10 conversions. 12% CTR, 9% conversion
    ^^Extreemly natural traffic. At 10 conversions you can make ~$22. Subtract the cost of 1000 visitors and that makes an even $20. Now multiply by doing this with multiple networks.

    That way you will have to send some traffic to your white hat blog to fix CTR%, and then some to your landing page to fix conversion %. Makes alot more sense to Iframe the landing page into your white hat blog, and do my above suggestion.

    Increase the impressions by including the image in the method you use to fake the referrer.

    Traffic -> redirect #1 -> redirect #2 -> redirect #3 -> Ratio Control -> offer

    At redirect #3 you would put two banners (each from a different offer) so that it would appear that you get many page views.

    The ratio control will control how many users actually go through to the offer.
