    Hi guys.

    Can someone help me with some advices about how to hide the traffic sources? I've read a lot on this forum and I saw threads about:

    - blanking the reffer
    - CPA redirector 2

    Are any methods for hide traffic sources? I'm looking for methods to stay under radar of the cpa companies.

    I'm wondering if someone can help me how to stay away from ban hammer of cpa companies?

    Thank you blackhatworld :D

    Either of the methods that you talk about (blanking - DMR or cloaking - CPAR) will hide your traffic.

    That's just the initial step of 'staying under the radar' though...depending on what kind of method you are using, you may also have to worry about your conversion ratio - to control this, you'll need a source of 'junk' traffic...there are several providers in the BST that can help you with that.

    If you blank the referrer you are going to need a good story as to why your referring URL is blanked.

    If you fake your referrer ie. through CPA redirector or other means, you will have less explaining to do as long as your EPC is normal and you have a decent whitehat landing page, however this does take more initial effort to set up, and you must be sure your script does not leak (although this is true under both circumstances).

    At the end of the day if your traffic is good they won't really care. If your traffic is bad none of your referral blanking will help no matter how good your stories are.

    What's the traffic source in this case?

    external site with link to landing page -> landing page with link to CPA offer -> CPA offer

    The referrer url is the url of the landing page, right?
