    sup BHW,

    I've been experimenting w/ different kinds of CPA tactics and I've found a few that are $$$. I use adwords for all my marketing efforts with a typical 200-400% roi.

    An ez one is make a landing page for whatever download and ask somebody to fill out an offer and you'll send a link to the download via email. You can use whatever promotion for example dating offers where you ask them to send you their "log in name". You have to spread this across multiple networks/offers becuz these will not convert long term for adveriser. To stay organized just set up different emails accnts.

    I use mightyb's method/landing page for this and I also use cakeslice (w/ email submits only) which I know there's been problems w/ but so far I've been fine and doing a low volume spreading out over multiple networks. You can use "alternative links" to capitalize on other offers which I do as well. This also works well because there is typically not too many bidders for "download whatever" so cost is low.

    use this site
    Code:
    http://tools.seobook.com/keyword-tools/seobook/
    and search the words "free" and "download". Or you can target specific movies/tv shows/video games/porn star names - build landing pages around and keep your bids low.

    Obviously we can easily find downloads to anything we want via torrents but most people don't know about these. And when you email them back you can have them opt in to your list in order to gain access to whatever they want to download.

    And where do you buy cheap hits from to lower your conversion rate for the offer?

    Thanks for the information. As far as using cakeslice, could you elaborate a little on that, as I have cakeslice, but never used it because of the referrer leaks.

    lol but your method is illegal because this deals with copyright software. So if you get caught your not only going to be sued but you will most likely spend some jail time lol.

    But from his grammar/vocabulary, it is clear that he is not from the US. And it costs a lot for someone in the US to sue someone in, say, Malaysia.

    So it's not going to happen. The worst thing that can happen is he'll get a C&D email.

    lol, I make these posts stream of consciousness style, but I am from US

    I switched over to gump recently adn to add to initial post I'm using "alternative downloads" in conjunction w/ cpalead and install a toolbar to access this page. Behind cpalead I will give a link to site that says fill out this other offer and email me and I will give you download (I link to mininova). I use cparedirector for this hoop. You can use adbrite to lower epc.

    mix in real traffic and legit offers by direct linking - repost:

    CPA Trick for Direct Linking
    1) Direct linking to an affiliate link in adwords, and getting a GREAT quality score.

    -When you create your add, write in both the destination url and display url the address

    of an authority site in that niche (make sure that site does not promote on adwords as

    well). I use wikipedia most of the time.

    -After that, you go into your adgroup and use the "Edit keyword settings" function to change the destination url of each keyword, and you can place your affiliate link there.

    There is a heck of a work to change it for each keyword, but is well worth it.

    Now, your landing page will receive the qs of the greatest authority site in that niche, while your ads will direct your visitors straight to your affiliate links. No more hassle creating landing page and optimizing, you can basically burn through campaigns and find the most profitable ones right off the bat.

    ^Nice one.

    You say you use adworrds only?

    How much do you pay per click.

    I tried this method, but only made $40 or so from the $60 I spent on adwords getting 7 cent clicks.

    As long as you do not host the material , you are safe........

    Nothing illegal about offering a link to another web property that is hosting the material.........
