    Alright, just got approved for Peerfly and plan on setting up a site with some paid traffic and what not just to jumpstart this thing. Im not sure if I should risk incentivizing the offers and just let whoever visits the site fill out an email or two and what not. Anyone think its worth the risk? any ideas?? I never really did email submits but ive done the whole incentivized thing and had my one account actually banned for fraud on a different network....yeah that was money wasted and just, not a good time...I kinda screwed it up myself by not at least providing some traffic so my conversion rates werent like 90% :(. But im just wondering if anyone has any suggestions, or any opinions on my "method".

    Buy some shaving cream and hope you don't get burns.

    Kidding, I too got approved a few weeks ago and then started reading shaving threads so I haven't even bothered with them yet lol

    GL to you tho maybe try PPC ad campaigns?

    If you've been burned ( banned ) once, why do it again? Read around, if you're willing to spend money on paid traffic why not do it the legit way?

    Lmao. Well for starters im a blackhatter. Second, im gonna use a cpa redirector and fake my refferer, unlike last time where my conversion rate wasnt believeable and my traffic sources were visible...and i can find traffic for cheap so whatever.

    I hope your peerfly username isn't in any way similar to your username here. I know for a fact a couple of the admins over at peerfly read the boards here.

    That being said, incentivizing non-incentive offers is not worth it. If you want to incentivize things sign up for a network that allows it, you wont get paid as much per lead, but it will be a long term stable income instead of getting paid once or twice (or not at all) by peerfly.

    If peerfly sees you sending junk traffic they will ban you and not pay you. What do you mean "why?" - because you broke the terms of use and hurt their relationship with their advertisers.

    Blamads and Adscendmedia allow incentive traffic to name a few.

    Ohhh...hmm, im having second thoughts. With all the "shaving" going on, (i still have no idea what that means) and now they can just ban you if your traffic is junk? Screw this ill go join MaxBounty or the 2 you named....Im looking for a long term stable income, not this crap where they watch you like hawks, and the fact that they have people on here is just really, i dont even know what to say to that actually....

    Pretty much all networks:
    -shave/scrub a bit.
    -ban at the first whiff of fraud.
    -watch you like a hawk.
    -have people here.

    If you want a "a long term stable income" you should be having second thoughts. Not about Peerfly but about your whole approach to cpa marketing. Long term stable income and lead fraud generally do not mix well.

    lol about joining maxbounty. They will ban you just as quick for any sort of fraudulent activity. If you are going to send incentive traffic, join an incentive network. Otherwise you will get banned sooner or later (probably sooner).

    When they see 100% of your leads bounce after first page, and most of them have fake information, they will ban you.

    Someone who is legitimately interested in an offer will enter real information 90%+ of the time. Someone who is doing it for an incentive will likely enter a fake email address and not fill out any more than they have to. After you send a few hundred leads and they see each one is bad they will ban you.

    The point is (for me anyways) to use blackhat methods to drive quality traffic. If you want something to last long term the traffic needs to be what the advertiser is looking for. The fun blackhat part is finding ways to get that traffic that the advertiser wants.
