    Hey...

    My AM needs to know where I am getting my traffic from before I can get paid. I told em I buy traffic from a friend and assured him that it wasn't traffic from a source that is not allowed by his network. Since I fake the http referel, they see the traffic coming from an AutoBlog.

    He needs more information as to where the traffic is coming from; anyone want to help out? I was thinking of saying something like...

    "I bought a bunch of domains from a friend and AutoBlogs (here is a sample), and all the traffic is generic search, and such..."

    But I am guessing that won't be enough.

    This is only to 1 offer. It doesn't say what traffic is allowed, it says what isn't:
    US traffic Only
    NO Coreg or Incentive traffic

    mmmm, do you have high conversions for this traffic? How much are we talking about in terms of payment? It may be that they are trying to source or steal your traffic - this happens allot so be careful about disclosing too much. Not sure how they can withhold your payment, but unfortunately some Networks operate that way. What Network is it?

    I really dont want to say what network cause they may be reading; however, it isn't a Black Hat Network, it is a network that I have been working with for over a year and has always paid. I think the advertiser may be withholding payment on them and they want to see proof where my traffic is coming from. The conversions were somewhat high, a 23% conversion rate (clicks to lead).

    Well it wouldn't hurt to try that story first, and make up more details if your AM presses harder.

    Tell them you get your traffic from PPC from google. Should work like a charm.

    Since they have your fake referral URL as your autoblog, your only choice is to say you drive traffic to your website through organic traffic, social media, video marketing, etc. (depending on the terms of the offer).

    Do you even have any links to the offer on the blog? And don't go saying you have a ton of sites if your referer is only from one source. Both of those things are dead giveaways.
