    I need to fake impressions for some CPA offers and possibly EPN. First off, yes I do have some real traffic and real converts. The problem is that I am cookie stuffing the same programs. I blank referrers, but I am not able to get my impressions to outweigh the "clicks" that have been stuffed. This may look funny to some affiliate managers. So I have a couple of questions:

    I know that an affiliate manager can tell where clicks are coming from if the referrer is not blanked but can they tell where an impression comes from when checking stats?
    If not, would it be a good idea to set up a simple page on my website with the affiliate links and pay to send unique US traffic to it (just for the impressions).

    One more question. If you cookie stuff a PPC offer, does a stuff actually register with the network as a click?

    These may be total newb questions but if you know the answers to any part of this post, I would appreciate some help. Thank you all for your help ahead of time.

    Also: I don't think that this has much to do with CS really, so I did not post it there. If I am in error, please move this and forgive me.
