    so I have been expirementing with a few blackhat ideas and getting sales and leads with CJ. it is still in the experimental stages so I will share more later, but I have run into a little road block. CJ just asked me to verify where all my traffic is coming from. they said I have only X amount of days to respond or they will discontinue the advertiser that I am doing well with. They then said IF I was using PPC to give them the Key words that I am using and show them one or more of my adds.

    Here is the thing. I have NEVER used PPC so I am not really up to speed with it if I wanted to lie and tell them I am using PPC.

    The way I am getting my traffic anyways is thru youtube videos. I am sure they arent going to approve youtube video traffic. So I need some Ideas, what do you guys think I should do??

    Hmm... what would give them the idea that you ARE using PPC in the first place? I would say you're using several methods to drive traffic and exposing your proprietary marketing tactics would put you out of a career. Show them the landing page you send people to and thats that. Are u blanking referrers or is it just type-in traffic because its from the YT videos?

    Don't panic! Take a deep breath. I am agent BHW 007.
    Depending on if you stand to lose a great deal or money or not, here is what you do.

    There are several people on this very board selling activated adwords accounts for as low as $15.

    What you could do is buy one of these accounts-- Set Up dummy campaign with account reflecting ads for advertiser-- Send this info over to CJ/Cgay-- They see your ad-- They get happy-- You get paid--

    That's actually normal for cj to ask those question on the first payout. The answer depends on a question, if there asking why traffic is coming from same computers you could say that you've made a deal with a local internet caffe or internet game place to post your site for x amount of weeks for a certain services you did, it worked every time for me on that one. Than on your regular account traffic inquiry sometimes I use the topsite excuse and video advertising and tell "em if they like to review my videos to contact me via email or phone" that usualy puts em in a trusting position if you didn't mess up too bad.

    THis should help but in worst case scenario they will ask to make your account as a special case in which you would have to write a little esay i would say on why ur account is being deemed as special.

    but you need my version of ansver post the Question and if i have time today ill write u an example answer.

    hit thanks if this helps..

    I dont know why they think PPC! NONE of my traffic is blank referrers, they actually showed me the referring site and asked how I am driving traffic to it. The youtube videos just have a live link to the right so they can just click on it. I wonder if it would piss them off it I did tell them that it would put me out of a career if I told them all my secrets!! LOL.

    CJ is very itchy when it comes to traffic.

    Once I set up a aff.store that got it´s content from the CJ feed. I just tested it for an hour and then removed it.

    Not long after that I got an email from them, asking me how I was to send traffic to the URL the store was on. They threatend that if I didn´t reply within 5 days my account would be blocked.
    I totally forgot to reply to the mail and expected to be shut out once I stumbled on the mail again.

    Nothing happened and I never heard from them again on this subject.
