    just like the title says. I have a method that should convert really well, and its a little BH so i was just wondering what you guys think based on your experience. Is it a red flag to have all of your traffic with a blank referrer. Doing mostly email/zip submits that allow incentive traffic (incent traffic is usually crap traffic anyway).

    what have you found based on your experience.

    Yes, my AM usually ask where my traffic comes from. that's when i blank the referrer. i usually mix with cheap PPV (purchased) traffic to keep ctr on the minimum level..

    Affiliate networks sometimes steal clients so that would be a good reason you would hide referrer, but I think CPA Redirect works better because it fakes the referrer rather than blank it.

    Is it a redflag to your girlfriend when you spent $100 bucks a month on condoms and never sleep with her?

    Come on!

    Don't blank the referrer people have caught on to that now you have to fake it! (I could so put another girlfriend sex joke here but I'll let you figure it out)
