    I have been busy applying a lot of networks lately and for the most part I was successful and got approved by most. I used the tactics listed in BHW (ppc, media buys). But when it comes to maxbounty... I find the customer service really sucks.

    First I tried to contact the AM by AIM. I added maxb0unty-amy on my aim but she NEVER once replies my aim. Okay fine. Then I keep getting emails from her saying my application was rejected. I wrote back as sincere as possible... listing a few of my wordpress sites with CPA offers. Meantime I tried calling them... nobody picked up. I got an email saying she has passed my application to another dept. 2 days passed.. no further reply. I wrote back again inquiring my status... she said "i was rejected once again" without even explaining why.

    Anybody has this experience? What do you suggest I do with this situation?

    What the heck? Thats strange. Have you gotten banned there before or something? I had no issues getting into MB. They auto approved me I think.. I guess that changed.

    i got approved by them quite easily too a long time ago, maybe too many people signed up too easily and started bringing in a lot of shit traffic so they're more anal about who they approve now. are the sites you showed them receiving regular traffic?

    Maxbounty is a good network, but I wouldn't recommend doing much blackhat with them. It's the price you pay for a good, reliable network that pays on time. It's the balance you have to find. Some networks don't give a damn where your traffic comes from because they're blackhat too; unfortunately that means you could get a ban at any time, for any reason and they get to keep your commissions, white hat and/or black hat.

    Others are total asses about blackhat traffic, but because of that, it's much easier to get your true whitehat traffic and leads paid for, every time.

    There's no such thing as a perfect network. They all have their plusses and minuses.

    But if you planned on running anything black hat through MB, I'd advise you to skip it and just move on to another network. It's not worth thinking about a second time, especially not worth getting upset over.

    Odds are, you never would have gotten paid for black hat through them anyway, so why stress?

    :)

    ive had the opposite problem with MB, all the blackhat traffic ive ever sent them id been paid for, but whenever i sent real white hat traffic to them they shave the shit out of it until it is unbearably unprofitable and i pause the campaigns almost immediately. time after time. ill probably never use them for anything ever again.

    i liked mb when i was in it. they were the first cpa i got into which is why i liked to use them. unfortunately i got banned from them :/ i really liked their interface tho, it was really easy to use unlike comision junction's or cpas im in... but yea each cpa def has pluses and minuses just gotta use each one the right way :)

    glad to hear a lot of ppl think mb is crap compared to other places cuz now i dont regret getting banned as much

    try not to get greedy!

    all my campaigns i use with mxbounty are done through blackhat methods, and ive never gotten caught/banned. i made thousands of dollars using various methods and they never noticed. u just have to be careful with your landing pages and make sure to send junk traffic + double meta refresh

    If you want to get approved first setup a free wordpress site that is relevant to the campaigns you want to utilize.

    I use Max Bounty and it's great. It pays well and they pay fast.

    Also, Amy is quick to respond and is always looking for applicable campaigns.

    Hope that helps.

    My Maxbounty AM is never on AIM and always emails me, no problem with that, but it's annoying when you want an answer to something, this second, and a response takes an hour or more!

    they change AMs a lot it seems haha. I'vehad 3 different AMs in the past 3 months.

    the AMs are usually quite helpful and quick to respond, although I had one that wasn't very technical and couldnt figure out how to set up live callbacks for me.

    mb is wack they just send me an email one day and said that my account was deleted for fraud.

    I sent them an email to ask why they never responded and my am ingnoring me on aim.

    I think becouse at that point I had like 1:100 covertions on emails submit ppl campiens they just said we're not going to pay her.

    It looked funny I guess, lol
    so I learned the hard way to have at least 100 affliates networks
