    A lot of people are saying it is better to use your own content locker and then blank the traffic? so I want to know will the CPA networks ban me if I use my own content locker to blank my traffic sources ?

    (and what are the advantages of blanking my traffic sources ?)

    Thanks,

    Yes it is better. In fact, if you want a higher EPC then make sure the locker doesn't unlock so people will continue to fill out offers.

    I have been using a CLP for 2 months now and blanking my referrer and they haven't cared.

    Also, with all due respect, stop creating these useless threads when you can easily search it.

    Thanks for your reply, I did do some research on that, someone people say it is better to blank the traffic sources and some people say that CPA networks don't like people doing that...so I am not so sure whether it is really ok for me to do that or not, I am new to CPA stuff so I create a thread here to ask for more opinions...

    See that is a better way to ask your question(s). Give a reason behind why you can't search for it like this and people will more likely respond. If your making 5k a month with AWM and blank your referrer, they will probably ask questions. But a few hundred a month they won't care.

    You can utilize and referer faking when using custom content locker which is way more safe than blanking

    otherwise as already advised, if you do few hundred bucks a month with blanking you won't have issues, if higher numbers then for sure there will be questions

    What do you think guys , redirect from another domain to your CPA link is good enough as fake refferer or do I have to do at least two redirects to be safe?

    the link is in my sig :)

    networks usually ask questions because they're not sure about your traffic... blanking you referrer or hiding it will never get you banned from the big and serious networks :) just tell them your into media buying and the people you buy your media space from asked you to keep their info private

    unless you're triggering synthesized tracking pixels and completing your own offers a network won't do shit :)
