    You would have to have separate IP's for each submit, a new email address for each submit (a working one, aka it won't bounce back), and some of your sign ups would have to move beyond the first screen or the advertiser will raise the red flag. Plus you would need to have a normal traffic pattern. Can just rip off a 100 in 20 minutes then be done for the day. Some sort of random scheduling would be needed.

    not just that, the networks has like a statistical model to access whether your leads are real or not. If only 2% go to the second page, it means your leads are shit, and they might just ban you or withdraw the commission.

    If you pass the first round, with say 50% of your leads going beyond the 3rd page, they will then see how your leads convert at the back end.

    They will email your leads and see open rates, response rates, etc. If your leads never open the emails they sent, consider yourself screwed. I spoke to the director of one network, and this what I got from the conversation. If you're getting away with fake leads, its just either luck, the network is stupid, or they are going to end the campaigns soon when they see the leads are just shit...
