    Just got this email...Sheesh it was a matter of time before I was going to hear about another well established cpa network going down but this is a shock to me. First Copeac now Neverblue. This is just the beginning.

    What are you guys thoughts about this?

    Thanks to blackhatters. there is no way a CPA network be successful over a long period of time if the traffic coming in is junk or hijacked traffic through content locks and other black hat methods.. This is bound to happen and we can see more networks going this way.

    Neverblue is one of the top CPA networks out there so I really didn't expect something like this to happen. Oh well, I guess it's going to be a few years before the industry changes.
    Edit: read the article. It's not Neverblue that's going down...

    Clickbank and Neverblue-one and two. I think the future of cpa IS content locking. More and more outfits are actually providing their own lockers.

    I agree with the first response... advertisers are starting to see that a lot of CPA networks are just bringing in junk traffic that is not converting... sad to see Neverblue go even though I never had an account with them -- but I was just about to register one. About to sign up with ******* and PeerFly before its too late :p

    Read the article. This is the parent company "Velo" & has nothing to do with Neverblue.

    "Neverblue Files For Bankruptcy" - nice choice for a topic. even the original story has stuff from nb that clearly says it's not nb that's going down.

    My bad. You're right. Actually Neverblue just sent me info on a contest to an Affiliate Summit in New York. They're doing better than ever. It's only the parent company VELO.

    "This filing will not impact Neverblue?s ability to meet client needs in any way ? we intend to continue to operate business as usual without interruption. Neverblue?s business is fundamentally strong and we intend to make all affiliate payments on schedule, in a timely and reliable manner. We?ve built out our global, performance-based online marketing strategy across several unique verticals, and now operate one of the largest international cost per action networks. Neverblue is absolutely well-positioned for future growth as one of the most highly-valued lead generation companies."

    OP, you should seriously get this thread closed down. As the article clearly spells out, Neverblue is not going out of business.

    All this thread does is cause people to trip out over nothing.
