    YES, I've done many searches, but never found a definitive answer.

    I'm promoting a zip submit and the first few days I was getting a 25% conversion rate. I know - WAY too high. So I've been throwing some junk traffic at it, and it has gone down to around 10%.

    A few questions for the experts;

    1. Do CPA companies think 10% is too high? If so, what should my target conversion rate be?

    2. The junk traffic has been from adult sites. Do CPAs really care where it's coming from?

    3. On my good links, I am cloaking my link thru prosper. Also, I am hiding the referrer with BHCB. Is this similar to blanking the referrer?
    Can they tell that all my sales are coming from my links and not the adult links?


    Thanks all...

    I was also wondering the answer to this question.

    JODYBERRY - when you throw fake traffic at your offer...do you have the fake traffic click on your cpa offer link, and then they just dont convert? (im guessing the answer is yes but i am not sure). Do you want to PM which company you use for fake traffic? Thanks!

    10% is quite normal.

    And if you look at your offers in your cpa account, you can see what the normal ratio is.. EPC .. some offers if even over 25% .. so .. i don´t think it´s a problem..

    They will though surely ask if you are getting over 40-50% ..

    So keep it going mate.
    And good luck

    The EPC for my offer is .08 , i'm getting about .38 legit, even jumped up to .42 once. I haven't ever had problems,

    I'm sure a couple people get more then that.

    naw 10% is fine. Infact with a targeted list you should be doing higher than that, and that would be white hat numbers.

    I started posting on CL and conversions were 10-40%. I thought for sure I would at least get a phone call from the AM but nothing yet.
