    Hello,

    I would like to ask how CPA's owners recognizing my traffic source?

    For example about maxbounty,peerfly ....etc next to the offer features it's written the Allowed Methods example :(ppv,Email marketing,Social media...etc) Not Allowed: NO Incent, NO Classified Ads,No twitter....etc

    So what about if i sent traffic from twitter "while they already not allowed twitter traffic" to my landing page ! then i'm wondering how does they will recognize that :?


    Thanks !!

    well, but that's says ( which indicates the last page the user was on (the one where they clicked the link).) that means they would just be able to track my "landing Page" because the user clicked on there link which it's in my landing page !! So Twitter still unrecognized for them !! am i true ?

    If your landing page is in between then they won't be able to detect that the traffic originates from twitter.

    Best bet is to ask your affiliate manager. I once asked my affiliate manager about this and what you are describing wouldn't count as twitter traffic, it would be traffic from your lander. They most likely mean direct linking to offers from Twitter

    I think "traffic source" there is to their landing page, any traffic to your lwebsite then direct to their landing page is ok. please correct me if I'm wrong :)

    Well they are very strict about compliance, and that's how they stay in the good graces of their advertisers. Quality traffic and conversions are critical for the entire CPA model to have it's cash flow through, so they definitely don't want spammy twitter/tumblr/facebook/G+ accounts driving the bulk of the traffic to the offers. For starters, if it converts irregularly it's a huge red flag.

    That's why you use the lander. A lot of people might 301 direct an offer directly from the landing page, but it is conceivable this might leak a true referrer. You miss a great opportunity to squeeze your own traffic prior to sending them to the CPA offer in this manner anyway. Think about how much more valuable it might be if you were first gathering leads prior to sharing them (by presenting offers) with your CPA networks.

    Don't skip the lander. Use a lander. Pre-sell your customer, prospect, or whoever that you can help them, and that they should trust your recommendations. Build confidence, eliminate objections before they happen, and most importantly - build your own list of cash cows.

    But yeah ... don't direct link, and if you are unsure about the position of a network on a traffic source - just ask them. They like to make money too, so if your idea is sound, and you aren't just scamming - they're usually down to help you so they earn more too.

    With Peerfly, you can't post your own landing page on Twitter with Peerfly offers on it.

    However, this is what Luke from Peerfly said 2 yrs ago.

    "
    Most of the time it's not an issue to hide referer. If there are quality issues with your traffic then the network may request that you no longer hide them. As K said, you're much better off if you trust the network you work with"

    Instead of 301 redirect, use a fake referer script & double check if it's working before proceeding .

    As long as your traffic is good you can cloak or do anything to hide your refer , but if it's bad , they will ask for traffic source proof .

    Just make sure to send quality traffic to offers .

    Hi there,
    I have just joined peerfly and approved as a publisher.

    Instead of directly giving out your links on Twitter, i suggest you should make a free blog on blogger or WordPress, Tumblr (Best for this method)
    Setup same landing page on blogger / WordPress / Tumblr.
    Send the traffic to it via Twitter or any other media.

    Also you can build quality links for your blog and can rank as well.

    This would be my strategy for promoting cpa offers!
