    Ok, i got a problem...and I am trying to figure out the best way to go about this.

    Ok...to try and not give away my method I am going to use a SORTA similar example to ask my question. Im looking for help and feedback...

    With the whole passworded torrent idea and such....once you get someone to download and they get your url...what kind of offers would you use? I was doing an email submit and having good results...but I got a call tonight from my aff manager saying the advertiser was kinda pissed because they were submitting emails but they were not going all the way through the whole profile creation.

    I was under the impression that you were to just make the password on the second page or something...but it seems that for it to not have red flags go up you need them to go all the way through and make the password at the end.

    Is this right? If it is then that pretty much shows me my mistake and where i screwed up.

    BUT...from yalls experience do people really go through like 5 pages of surveys to get their password ? And do they put enough "valid" information so as to not get any big red flags?

    IN SUMMARY OF QUESTION ONE:
    I can get plenty of people to submit an email but it seems this is all they did...i got credit...but the advertiser is now pissed because apparently they didnt go all the way through the survey/profile since my password was only on the second page after the email submit....so i suppose then even in blackhat are we suppose to get them to go all the way through the survey or form or whatever they are filling out ....right?

    Now my second question.

    If we are doing something like the whole torrent thing...what kinda referral url does this come up with? wont it be weird if they cant track back to see what page it came from? Wont that throw up red flags?

    And my third and final question!

    if we are doing the whole torrent thing where they click and do it for a password...that is obviously incentives...do yall really adhere to those rules in your offers or do you do it anyways even if it a offer is labeled as not an incentive offer...because the offer availability and payout is MUCH different between the non incentives and the incentive offers --*this is where question two could come into play really*


    I know this is super long...but I also know that people on this forum are some of the best. These may be somewhat newbie questions but they are the only ones that are holding me back and screwing with my method from literally making $500+ per day.

    PS: Please note that the torrent thing is not exactly what i do...but it relates in the same ideas well enough that i can use it as an example...so you dont have to reply saying "how is it possible to make anything with torrents"...haha

    Sorry I could not PM you but this should help answer your questions.

    Answers:
    Q1- I had a problem with the promotion that you're speaking of and they sent me an email saying blah, blah, blah and that they were not targeting me but they are asking all affiliates to pause the offer. Well the method I was using did not allow me to pause it but they still gave me my money (they change my account manager but on the 15th I got paid and I never responded to their email). I don't think any of the people filled out the whole form. No one is going to fill out 5 pages as they are lazy (that is unless you offer something big)

    Q#2
    The user has to copy and paste the url in the browser so at times is may show torrent site url. To get around this, just make a simple webpage and have it automatically redirect to offer (the referrer will show your page as the referrer)

    Q#3
    IMO I think you our incentizing an offer and it should be okay but the networks are not going to go for that. Also if you wanna "fluff" your traffic you could also by cheap traffic (exoclick banner ads maybe :)

    Also remember to use different networks as a lot of them have the same offers.

    Glad to see you're method is working.
