    I need some advice. I'm at a point where I could double my income if I mixed black hat leads in with my white/grey hat leads, but do you all think it would be a bad idea to jeopardize my earnings?

    Should I go for it, or just play it safe?

    Also: If I did, what ratios do you all think I should use?

    ex: 90/10, 50/50, etc.

    Thanks!

    Just cover all your tracks, and you should be fine. For every 100 WH leads do about 25 BH.

    Have you had experience mixing leads (I always blank my referer, and my AM is cool with it), not trying to be rude?

    A couple of people contacted me with different numbers. Anyone else have some more input?

    if I were you, I'd start out with the 90/10, see if that raises any flags, if not then go up little by little only as long as you feel comfortable.

    Depends on the offer. For instance, zip submit offers are shaved like crazy no matter if the leads convert or not. So, if it's a zip submit offer, you can be a little bit more comfortable.

    The other fact is how young your account is. If it is a fresh account i would say be careful. If you already are making money consistently, then you can go ahead with 90/10.

    its ok to mix them as long as you know what you are doing. Like hiding it away from watchful eyes.

    I know what you mean. A lot of you are telling me to do 90/10. The profits wouldn't even justify the risk at that point. Is it safe to go higher?

    It depends which cpa nets ure using and which offers youre pushing. Really a lot of factors need to be taken into consideration here. E.G. Ive pushed 100% bh leads to lets say email submit offers on several nets and got away with it for years :44:, but that was in years past dont even try that thesedays. You still need to tell us what kind of offers are we talking about here, on some high paying offers any BH traffic is a no no.


    :yeah:

    Its a high-converting email submit. I am making 100$ daily white/grey hat from it. I would love to throw in some BH leads and up my profits though.
