    I'm thinking of adding CPA to my specific niche download website, but I'm afraid that'll just send users away to the competition due to the hassle they get when trying to download the file (only legit files btw).

    How do you manage CPA? Should CPA be used for something else?

    Do you only use CPA in throwaway websites?

    CPA is a very competitive market in the world of digital marketing.

    If there is any reason for you to want to make money CPA is the best method and I would strongly suggest you replace any other ad networks in exchange for these types of advertisements because of the fact you will multiply your streams of profit.

    You can use CPA on throwaway sites, but it would be better to create parasite pages instead of throwaway domains because of the sole fact they will last a lot longer if you know what you are doing.

    I think you may have confused the basic idea of CPA with something that is illicit or blackhat. While this is BHW, and many of the techniques and strategies to promote CPA have blackhat components - that doesn't mean there is anything particularly shady about CPA in nature.

    Many people(myself included) use CPA in very whitehat or straight laced ways including media buys, content display, backend of members areas or opt-in backends, email marketing CPA to our existing double opt-in leads, etc... However, if your "specific niche" is something completely on the skirts of the seedy underbelly of the internet, then that might make it a lot harder to promote CPA on the site without going full blackhat. If that's the route to take though, you are certainly in the right place to learn how to clean up.

    Good luck!
