    So, something clicked about 3 months ago and I woke up to a few new methods, now every week brings with it more problems and more solutions. I am on the verge of making $600 today, and will be able to sustain it, but I know I am going to run into Major problems and need help.

    How do I 'Make Up' False Traffic Stats, so when my AM asks me to prove with the traffic is coming from, I can. I am already faking the referrer, but the Impressions to Click Ratio is too small, so I have had to put the landing page link back as my main link - and I bought traffic to the fake landing page via FB and Paid Traffic Sources(the offer allows Social Traffic).

    My source of traffic should actually convert ok, but its a cpa paid sign up, so I know it will be scrutunized. Also, I cannot put a 'Live Link' on my main source of traffic, so it will all come Direct, which has pluses and minuses.

    With one Network today, I am going to break the 300 marks. The EPC and CONV seem to be exactly where they should be, I have managed to raise the Impressions to Clicks ratio, but yet again, my main problem is this...if they ask me to prove where I get my traffic from, I need some answers, especially since its all Direct.

    Anyway, anyone that has experience with this, I would appreciate suggestions. If all goes well, I should be able to bang out 3-5k a day soon enough, which sounds almost unreal, but fuck it, thats why I have spent the last 3 years in front of the computer, I am now going to fail now, even if I have to join 50 cpa companies and collect 1K a month from each.

    The easiest way to throw them off truly - say you are doing offline promotion - flyers, greeting booths, postcards, etc and offer to show proof.

    If they request a copy of your postcard or whatever, either put something simple together (and when you send it to them say that like keeping it simple works best) or pay some DPer $5 to design one for you.

    Good Luck on your earnings!

    I would use PPV, just bid on a bunch of random urls for .01 clicks. Enjoy :)

    His question is how does he prove to his AMs what his traffic is, not how to get traffic....

    Thanks guys. Going to check out some PPV offers and see. I also like the offline promotion technique, will have to look into it more.

    Is an AM sees that you are promoting via PPV without permission, he's gonna throw away all of your earnings...

    Offline is the only foolproof way to fool an AM.

    I agree with invinceable - run some cost per view traffic.

    You can get the required LP popped so that it racks up the impressions on your internal stats - costs vary, but average is about $1.50 per 1000 (sure there is cheaper though).

    Hope it helps.

    I agree with rnc505 , because offline hosting will be able to keep your traffic hidden while showing fake proof of your traffic being from offline.

    Also, what about if I can prove the traffic is from facebook? it allows Social Traffic.

    I can also get 10-15 vids high up the search engines on Yahoo Video and Metacafe, then fake a load of views from there. They do not allow Live Links, so there would be no way of proving it wasn't from there...and there pretty easy to get them on page 1...

    Postcards can be sent all over the USA. You could be a travel salesman or you place ads in major newspapers accross the USA or just like the Miami Herald -anyone is florida can get the miami herald, etc.

    I dont live in USA, herein lies the problem. I live in Europe. Having said that, there must be a small ad I can take out in a Magazine that is sent out all over the USA, this could be the answer.

    You can say you paid a US company to distribute postcards - which is actually true and simple/

    I also own 70 websites, most coming up on google page 1 for some keyword - I can link to them and that should cover my ass a bit more. I am getting answers, must now stay up and work through the night. Any other suggestions?

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.
    Home Page:
    Postcards can be sent using the United States Postal Service usps.com.

    You can actually design a card there and have it sent out for you
    without ever touching the actually card. Pricing is reasonable and
    the service is used by a lot of companies.

    You can tell them that you are using that, photoshop a
    CC statement to reflect some charges and that should
    aid in covering your backside some.

    I would also suggest some PPV. Because in my opinion there is no risk associated with that. What do you think?

    Yes, you can also say that you are getting traffic from Articles marketing, if it is allowed too.
