    Hi,
    I am member since August(last year), but I never made a penny using BH techniques and CPA.
    I would like to start making some bucks using techniques shared before here, but when I tried to make money I found some problems. When I signed up on CPA I said that I promote offers using (only) PPC Programs (AdW0rds) with direct linking ( I said that because I didn?t had any website with traffic and a good layout). I?m now in CPA, and I found some intresting offers on network, but I don?t know how can I promote the offers without getting the banhammer.
    So supposedly, I only can promote through PPC (AdW0rds), but I will use other methods ( send emails with my aff link, mainly), the question is if I said to CPA that use AdW0rds(direct linking) to promove the offer ( but I won?t use, I will send my aff link to emails), the CPA will see that the traffic wasn?t come from AdW0rds, and I will get the banhammer. I searched on the forum and didn?t find the solution to this problem. Can someone help me?

    Can DMR fake the referrer to our whitehat site so that if AM check it, it will show that the traffic is coming from our whitehat site with the cpa offer link. But actually the traffic we get is by doing blackhat method like sending out the email with our cpa offer link to the email list that we get from craigslist, myspace or any other traffic source.

    I think fake the referrer is better than blank the referrer right, so anyone can give some suggestion. Thanks

    Blank ref. is much better. Every affiliate manager knows that 99% of affiliates are using it so they won't ask questions since you are either protecting your keywords or your landing pages. It is pretty safe to say that almost everyone is doing it in this industry.

    But i read on bhw here that many people say if you blank referrer and get high conversion rate,the AM will start question you because they cant find your traffic source.

    I am new on cpa and just join 2 cpa network around few day ago and i already start make some money on this 2 cpa network combine with DMR because of doing blackhat method.

    So far my epc is around $0.10-$0.20, is that consider high conversion? Also how about if AM ask me where i get the traffic since i directly redirect visitor to the cpa offer page without any my whitehat landing page?

    Thanks

    No, that's crap. As long as your traffic converts on the back end it is fine. Some of my campaigns have EPC of >$4.

    So you use DMR method for all of your cpa campaign even from the first day you get your cpa account approved by cpa network and never get question from your AM or get your cpa account banned?

    Yes, always. White hat, grey hat, black hat and everything in between. No matter what, always blank my referrer.
