    Hi all,

    Sorry I haven't done much posting on here, been using the site for research for a long time (some AMAZING info/help - THANKS!), but I'm now at the point where I think I know which questions I need answers to - hopefully some of you will have the time and patience to help me?

    My basic plan is to go for CPA revenue, mainly from 'false incentives', for example dating/phones/jobs. I plan to keep my activities UK based, as I feel that I can be considerably more convincing working in a market that I understand - hope that makes sense?

    I have most of the tools I need as far as I know (websites/FB accounts/content unlockers/email lists etc etc) but right now, no CPA networks :(

    So, question number 1 please - which CPA networks are most likely to work with UK 'consumers', and if this isn't too crazy a question, do any suit BH activity more than others?

    Question number 2 please - I keep reading about faking the referrer, and have CPA Redirector here ready to use (big thanks to the creator), but what I want to ask is, do the networks not question why I might be hiding my referrer, and if they do, is there a good answer i.e. 'I want to protect my 'system'' or similar?

    I'm sure I need to know some other things, but these two area's would help me a tonne for now!

    Thanks in advance guys,

    Bezz.

    Im from the UK too (Northampton) and like the poster above am signed up with Maxbounty who have a good range of UK offers. From my experience though, CPA offers tend to work better in the US than the UK. Not sure why. Perhaps Brits are more sceptical about the usual 'Zip Submit' offers?

    I dont think you should limit your market to the UK only as others have mentioned US traffic tends to convert better. I dont think think there CPA companies that are more likely to accept you because you are from the UK as they have thier own criteria based on numerous factors.

    Home Page:
    With faking the referrer the networks do not get to see that you're hiding your traffic, where they do get to see this is when you referrer. Instead, they see a white hat page which the particular offer could be pushed through.

    In the case of Brad1001's CPA Redirector it works like this. http://www.blog.com/blog-post/ is your whitehat blog post which promotes the offer within the advertisers TOS.

    http://affiliatelink.com/offer.php?=affid&=19 is your affiliate link.

    http://www.blog.com/blog-post/?mn=XXXX where XXXX is a 4 digit number you come up with which directly links to your affiliate link.

    You send your traffic to http://www.blog.com/blog-post/?mn=XXXX and it redirects forward to your affiliate link, however as PHP does not pass through anything after ? as the referrer the network simply sees your whitehat blogpost as the referrer. If they are to check it themselves, all they will see is a legit whitehat blogpost.

    as already said, maxbounty is pretty easy to get on and faking the ref is the way to do it.

    The biggest problem you will have running UK offers is getting UK traffic to water conversions. Its a fucking nightmare, i used to get it from Findology until they ripped off one of my credit cards - they where a nightmare to use anyway. You can buy traffic from individuals but they always seem to be very disorganised, slow to respond and most of the time the traffic is crap (bots etc).

    I am on the look our for some good junk traffic now so if i find any i will drop you a PM. Look out for ekta74's thread in BST section... her/his? traffic looks pretty promising.

    I am also in the UK, although not a big IMer - I am here for the coding side of life, and always have a mix of offers from countries all round the world.

    This means that when someone from say the US hits, I can push them a US offer, if they are UK they get pushed a UK offer. All you have to do is add a bit of geo code to the mix and you are covered :)

    Good luck!

    Sounds great Fatboy, that coding may just be a little out of my league though :(
