    Nope, my commissions locked and everything, and they asked about my traffic source and everything checked out...

    Normally the 20th every month, not sure what's going on. I sent an e-mail today asking what's up.

    Glad to hear someone else has the same problem lol :D

    Bummer, hadn't received any notice here. I'm definitely moving away from CJ slowly, they are way too uptight :)

    they like asking the sources of traffic. but it is really not a problem. Just tell them what you do.

    You don't need to go blackhat to make money with CJ and thus you would have no issues with their "where is the traffic coming from" questions.

    I had a conference call with an AM and his boss on Friday and one of the questions they asked was how I generated traffic.

    I told them that I do not divulge specifics but that if he wanted to see some of what I do to go to ezine and look up my name. The reason for the call was because I wanted to do an email campaign and highlight some of what this advertiser offered and I wanted to make sure that they were cool with it.

    I sent them an example of what I was sending out and showed that it was can spam compliant... email campaign to 88,000 people approved.

    Cj has issues with CL, with email spamming and such but you don't need to do that to make decent money there.

    If you are going to do some of the "shadier" methods to drive traffic, just make sure that you are upfront with your AM before the process begins to cover your backside because CJ will not bust your stones unless your AM does.

    i dont understnad how to hide or fake my links

    what i did was i put the affiliate banner on my landing page and then spammed the hell out of my landing page on cl

    I sent them an email asking when i will get paid they said

    did you stop spamming craigslist?

    and then this

    We have to spend the time on Monday or Tuesday to see if you have stopped promoting as you were, but also to see if there are more warnings. We also have to check in with the advertiser.

    Did you manage your promotions, or did someone else supply you with that?

    how would i go about answering their question about who promoted.

    Scream, yell, and curse a lot. I tell them it's search or mail depending. If it's search often times they will force you to tell them your keywords...so they can go look up your ads.

    Tell them what fucknuts they are for stealing your money.
