    I just setup up evrything for CPA redirect 2. I am going to fake refferals for Adsend Media. I want to know if done with 100% accuracy if there is any chance of getting caught and banned. If so how much a chance am I taking. Thanks, and please only useful suggestions or answers only. I know some of you like to come in here and bitch and say dumb stuff. So again please only helpful answers. Thanks.

    I read a post where Autumn suggested that obscure mobile browsers,
    can't fake referrer... Of course you can get caught if the network puts
    the effort in to investigate you. It's the internet, and reverse engineering
    your campaigns are not as difficult as you might think... It's actually how
    I'm learning at the moment.

    Hide the referral bro, never fake it!

    Faking it doesn't leave you any wiggle room to lie about your traffic sources. If you hide referral then when your AM ask about you traffic just say "I've been fucked over in the past by people stilling my methods so I hide the referral". Just as long as "some " of your leads convert for the advertiser there is no reason they wouldn't believe you... It works!

    Faking is only for EXTREME BH methods so if your method is extreme then block all mobile traffic from your lander if your using a landing page.

    Hope that helps a little...

    You mean blank the referrer? I'm only aware of blanking and faking.

    I suppose that's what you mean. But I've heard people say to do the opposite of what you're suggesting.

    When you blank referrer you immediately raise questions, whereas with faking the referrer you can just say you bought into media buys.

    Yeah i still am not sure what I should do. Basically i spread copyrighted torrent material and games and stufff, and i know they dont accept traffic from that type of stuff. So i need some more good opinions on which i should do. Blanking or faking. and mobil browsers wouldnt even get to download the stuff i spread so im not worried about mobile browsers.

    OP - go with faking. If you are not new in the network and you have made them some money in the past - they wont kick you right away. They will give u a warning first. So give it a shot (if you are not new as I said) Also watch out for too high EPCs - wash the traffic with some bought traffic

    Then my advice is join some not-so-big CPA network to test your method. They are not so good at tracking as the big ones.

    can't the network ask to see your site or something, if they suspect you of doing this? i thought someone mentioned that before. because if they do ask where it's coming from and you don't have a site to show them, you're screwed....

    use this wordpress addon to fake referrer for each offer:

    Code:
    http://www.contentgeneration.org/how-to-fake-a-browser-referrer-for-blackhat-cpa/
    create a different post on your wordpress blog for each offer and you are good to go;)

    well that's why i was asking. i've never done it, and was just wondering. also, other people might not realise they need to do that... they'd learn a lesson pretty quick though, lol...:)

    Blank/Hide same shit. Some people say hide, some say blank.

    And what if your referral leaks, there is little lies to make up for that happening. But yes, I see what your saying. somewhat...

    So would this be the same as faking the referral?


    Site A with the traffic ---> Site B ---> Site C ---> Site D with the CPA

    when blanking the referrer u may get problems,because the network wants to know where the traffic is coming from.
