    Ok this is going to be a general FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) of everything that is most commonly talked about in our lovable CPA section.

    Please check here before starting new posts asking questions.

    Thanks!

    FAQ

    "My Conversion Rate is too High! Help Me Lower and Stay Under the Radar"
    This is an extremely common question, so I will try to be thorough:
    Buying Junk Traffic - This will lower your conversion rates by sending traffic that will not convert. Most commonly used when running BH campaigns to avoid suspicion by Affiliate Managers. Also, be sure to keep your earnings low and spread out over many networks to avoid "having all of your eggs in one basket" in the chance something goes wrong.
    The main reason is that with BH leads, 99% of the time, nothing will convert on the advertiser on the back end. So by keeping your earnings low, you will keep them from caring enough to not pay you for the leads.

    Also, plan ahead when you are starting a BH CPA campaign, as you do not want your conversion rates to be extremely high, then buy junk traffic later on. This will raise eyebrows. You want it to look as natural as possible, so try to have both BH traffic and the junk traffic start coming in at about the same time.

    If you have money to purchase this, check out some of the sellers here on BHW:

    Or other solutions in these threads:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...conversion-im-fucked-help-rep-will-given.html

    If you don't have any money to purchase this, a great free alternative is Twitter (people love to click and conversion rates are very low) - Here is a free tool to help you automate this process:

    "I heard about DMR, What is it?/What is Double Meta Refresh?/How do I Double Meta Refresh?"
    DMR (Double Meta Refresh) is sending your traffic through a process that will remove the referrer and make it blank so nobody knows where your traffic is coming from. It will seem as if someone directly typed in your affiliate URL in their browser.
    This is also known as "blanking" your referrer. Commonly used for both BH and WH leads, to avoid your Affiliate Manager/Network/Advertiser seeing your referrals/keywords/methods. Only major network I can think of that has a habit of not accepting DMR type traffic is Commission Junction.

    Here is a great thread explaining the process:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...ools/20750-double-meta-refresh-redirects.html


    "How do I fake the referrer?"
    Faking the referrer does exactly what it says, instead of showing where your traffic is actually coming from, you can have it show whatever website you want. This is my favorite over blanking the referrals, as you will usually not get as many questions asked.

    Here are a few links to explain the process in better detail, and to get you getting up and going:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/cpa/37204-fake-referrer-cpa.html
    And a more advanced method:

    And finally, if you are using Wordpress, here is a new product that works very well:

    "I was doing so good with email/zip submits, now my conversions are crap, what happened?"
    This is a common occurrence with email and/or zip submits. Your conversions are most likely being scrubbed.
    Read here for more information including the "why" and the "how":
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...e-mail-submits-work-why-you-get-scrubbed.html


    "I heard about iFraming - What is it?"

    iFraming a CPA Offer is involving taking a regular CPA offer(Such as a free iPhone) and making it more desirable by changing how the page looks. Whether this is by adding an incentive, or a picture of Harro, this will increase your conversions.
    Now, on how to do it, here are some threads:

    "How do I use BHCB/Wordpress Guardian to make monies??"

    BHCB and Wordpress Guardian both work on the concept of blocking a user's ability to see your content until they fill out a CPA offer(normally to prove that they are "human").
    So all you really need is content that people want, a great way to do this is Google Trends.
    Anytime there is a video and/or pictures(sex tapes, music videos, celebrity scandals, new photos, etc.), upload whatever it is people are looking for and block the site with your choice of content blockers.
    Now you just need traffic, and a fantastic way of getting ranked in search engines quickly for Google Trends keywords(a tactic I have used many many times) is Yahoo Answers. Simply post a question/answer with good keyword density, and post a link to your site with the content in the answer.
    Here is a post explaining Yahoo Answers in better detail:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...how-make-700-day-mastering-yahoo-answers.html

    Here is a link for Wordpress Guardian(Another great product from BHW staff):

    "I'm applying for a CPA network, what do I say??"

    Since it seems many people don't check the stickies, here they are once again:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/cpa/32247-cant-get-accepted-read.html
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/cpa/48403-how-get-cpa-account-its-not-hard.html
    What questions they ask and good possible answers:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/cpa/142407-what-answer-when-cpa-ask-you-live-example.html

    And finally, I believe this one is the best walkthrough, and personally used all of these tips to get accepted into every major CPA company when I didn't know what I was talking about:
    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/cpa/17845-how-guarantee-acceptance-into-cpa-companies.html




    All in all, good luck, thanks for reading, and hopefully this has answered some and/or most of your questions.

    This is very valuable information. I am particularly interested in faking referrals. I'm also wondering what BH techniques are used to get the conversion rates so high in the first place.
