    Ok, I'm getting several duplicate IPs from Findology.... I don't know if that is good for cpa offers.

    I'm using some other page to test them with first, but does any of you guys use them to send traffic to their offers, and how are you handling the duplicate IPs?

    I mean, I know you don't get charged for duplicate IPs by them, but won't it be raising some flags with the networks?

    I'm just using them to water down the stats, not to actually generate leads. Are you doing otherwise?

    No man! I also want to use them to "water down the stats", but it seems they send several duplicate IPs... same visitor more than once, but only charge for their first visit.

    Has any network complained or questioned you about having more than a couple or four, five hits to the offer from the same person? Is it something I shouldn't care about?

    Yep! A year ago i sent traffic to them for cheap to a landing page with adsense on it... a legit one too and my adsense got banned because the traffic quality is terrible. Don't do business with those douche rockets

    You guys must be ignorant or something.

    Findology is adware. Of course you're going to get duplicate IP's. Learn how something works before you bash it.

    Ok, recently realized they are adware, but still no one wants to answer my f*****g question!

    Is it ok with cpa networks? they don't care about several duplicate HITS/IPs to their offers? am I not making myself clear here? anyone using them with cpa offers, your feedback is appreciated.

    P.S. patgelose... ofcourse you're gonna get yourself banned from adsense if you use them for it! never purchase hits/traffic for a page with adsense.

    I used them 5 years ago, they were partner with epilot.c0m and the traffic was fair, but then its all based on affiliates and it is good for free offers. Again that was 5 years ago cant tell now I think is crap right now.

    Regards

    To answer your question, the 5 CPA networks I've used Findology on have never said anything.

    Trial and error. If you never try, you will never succeed.

    Everyone seems to need a step by step or a handout. There's plenty of info to read around to get started ya lazy asses! ;)

    I think findology would work with the cpa networks, If it converts. The general consensus is their traffic is crap. I ran a decent amount with 0 conversions, it could have be me but it wasn't worth the time or money. You might have better results, just test it.

    I don't think the members here use them for conversion purposes. Only to deliver hits to the offers, and balance out their blackhat conversions.

    Hey Mystery, I currently use them as fluff traffic and the cpa companies haven't said anything so i'm assuming it's not a problem. I've been doing it for a while so you will be fine. Also findology if i'm not mistaken, has an option for the same ip's seeing your offer more than one in a particular time frame. If it's makes you uncomfortable, set that time frame further a part that's a little more in your comfort zone.

    I use Findology for:

    Legit AND Junk Traffic. It converts if you know how to use it and understand how it works.

    As simple as that, mystery. If you don't like my tone, feel free to ignore me.

    Amigo, it's not that. You dissed us twice in your above two posts. And above that, you still don't seem to understand the question, just like most who have replied to this thread too.

    I DON'T CARE whether it converts or not. That wasn't my question. All I needed to know is whether or not cpa networks would object to duplicate IPs (Hits) coming from them. The only two people who gave the correct answers were java and whysoserious.

    It's a matter of YES or NO. No need to play the cool guru role as in "It's a top secret guys! Only the enlightened know it! You lazy bums have to train harder to reach Nirvana!". Yes I did research and there's nothing mentioned about their duplicate hits.

    Trial and error? why do something risky that might get you questioned and/or banned from your network, which you can avoid by getting a simple yes or no advise from forums like this one? I thought this is why we are here. To share knowledge and feedback.

    We might have been newbies to cpa marketing, but we aren't to other fields. So a little more respect is appreciated.

    Affiliate Networks never worry about duplicate IPs as long as their tracking is not IP based. If it is IP based tracking, then you will be sucked.

    Are you sure it is not "IP based"? I always thought they could tell IPs easily. Well, I guess since merchants don't mind it, so would they....

    Maybe they only watch out for duplicate leads and such...
