    My Impression rate on CJ is currently 0 and I have about 25 clicks (which results in an N/A CTR rate) since I'm avoiding the impression pixel(s) and redirecting all clicks from the landing page in order to cloak the real source of traffic. Will CJ have a problem with this and question the source of traffic?

    I've made a modest amount for a first timer (nothing to write home about but enough to know continued effort will pay off) but waiting for a cheque yet since the transactions have not been fully approved yet. I know this was answered elsewhere and some mentioned sending junk traffic or say it came from email offers/social media but wanted to know the best way you handled it in case CJ questions it. Thanks.

    You should be fine. Of course, I'm assuming your "fake" page has a normal hypertext affiliate URL.

    Correct, the final hop page (ie. "fake" landing page) has valid affiliate URLs, so if they were to ever check the referrer, they would see a legitimate site, which in reality gets no traffic, but can potentially drive users to the CJ offer. If you're saying they won't question how I'm driving traffic to the "fake" landing page then I suppose there's no point in worrying. Thanks Chronos.

    Not a problem at all. I never use the tracking pixels on any affiliate company and I blank all referers yet they have never questioned my traffic sources.

    Commission Juntion do get funny about blank referers but to be fair they always have given me warning in order to rectify this before considering removal.
