    So, just signed up with a cpa network today based on some offers that match my niche.

    I was surprised how easy it was to sign up, browse offers and add the affiliate link into my site all in a few minutes. I reckon it's not one of the more popular cpa networks as I don't see it mentioned much here on BHW.. maybe it's more suited to tier 2 countries.

    Anyway... the thing is when I click the offer it brings me to a completely unrelated dating sign up everytime. The offer I want has nothing to do with dating. So I messed around for a while, tried a few different tracking codes out and found that my location could be the problem.

    So have been using proxy to see if I get the correct offer when I click my image link on my site.
    It did seem to have a postitive effect when I changed my location with proxy, the offer changed.

    However I can't get the right offer to show up, even when I use proxy of my target website visitors.
    The thing is I don't want my visitors being greeted with some random dating offer that has nothing to do with the niche.

    My only idea is that the cpa network detected a proxy and gave me a location based alternative.

    Hope my writing makes sense. I am confusing myself trying to type out what am thinking!! ><

    hmmm maybe because I choose a mobile offer and click the link with desktop pc, then it's serving me with some unrelated dating offer.

    I see the bit I ignored '3G traffic' ... 'no web traffic'

    A bit annoying if it is serving random offers to other people based on browser or location.
    I just checked on my smartphone and got one of those virus lookalike install offers

    Maybe I will need to switch cpa offers based on users location / device to make this work better

    If its mobile offer and that too 3g, then it will only be shown when the criteria matches. Some offers are restricted to certain mobile operators too, so if your mobile operator is other than that, offer will be redirected..

    People who are on mobile from that particular location will get your selected offer, rest of the people will get redirected to some other offer so you can earn something rather than nothing, if you have any issues with the dating offers, disable them. Big CPA networks provide you with such options in their dashboard, if you are working with a small network, just ask your Affiliate Manager to disable dating offers for you. :)
