    I have a murderous idea. I'm just wondering if I'll piss cpa companies off by doing an iframe to dmr.

    It appears that affiliates who use iframe will eventually get caught up by merchants. It's really no point losing a good offer for pennies.

    This is just a thought someone pointed on another forum along many other thoughts that are against iframes.

    If you do it right you won't get caught.

    Constantly blanking the referrer and the network will start asking questions, but if you fake the referrer to WH site, you will be fine. You will however have to mix in WH leads, or the advertiser will complain.

    Cheers

    I got caught when using cakeslice but that was because it leaked. I got banned and never got paid.

    I openly used iframes and never had any problems. Just say you are driving PPC traffic and you don't want to link directly to the offer in order not to get a poor Adwords quality score. This only works if the offer is the only thing you have in the iframe. So if you start adding iframes to existing blackhat pages you will indeed get busted. If you blank the referrer you will eventually face questions, especially if you start pushing some heavy traffic.

    I've done this fine with a DMR. I was questioned once and simply said that my AM at another network stole my PPC landing page word for word so I don't like to let anyone know my referrer anymore. Of course I was mixing in genuine leads that converted with the same offer so really not that big of a complaint.

    Some affiliates don't care as long as your traffic is converting.

    They may not but the merchant still sees the referring URL and even if the traffic is converting they would probably use it against you so that they have got some free leads. The reason for this being that they don't care about a relationship with a blackhatter, a blackhatter will move from offer to offer so there will never be a long term relationship anyway.
