    All the stickied guides to get approved with cpa networks, including Harro's, are outdated. Most of them were written in 2008.

    I tried Harro's method, and got rejected. Probably because its saturated and the networks caught on to it.

    The other guides just say tell them you spend $100 a day on ppc and get 50,000-100,000 uniques.

    But the current application forms are asking you the monthly profit you're making with ppc, number of impressions per month, average monthly ecpm and an explanation of why you prefer cpc or cpa!

    Dont these assholes know that to get experience, we have to get into a cpa network first?

    Can anyone please guide us serious noobs with the tips to get approved with these new forms. The stickies above are incomplete and rely on luck.

    That's really not true. The fundamentals of network approval are still the same.

    Some networks are stricter than others, but there are plenty that will let you in without already having a certain level of experience.

    Just tell them you are currently running Adsense on your sites, drive traffic with SEO and are looking to test CPA in X niche and you'll be fine most of the time.

    I got into two networks with no site. Which networks have you tried? Also try contacting them to see why they rejected your application to begin with. it may help you get into another network.

    I wish there was an official guide for a complete noob here. If there is, I'm not sure where at. Is it true that in order to pretty much learn here, you have to search piece by piece until you've got all of them?

    But I aggree with OP, in CPA business infos and methods change in light speed..( I believe that CPA section is the most volatile section in the forum )..Ok some few fundemantel threads can still stay , but if somebody could refresh those old ones it would be very nice..Half of the page is full with out dated sticky threads, causing me thread blindness :) lol ..

    I would recommend you start with Internet/html/PHP for dummies then come back to this site.

    Your right but that info is still relevant to a lot of different companies so like everything else on the internet research before you apply for that company. Not just on this forum but others too.

    Why do people think they need to lie or need a guide to get into cpa companies? Just be honest. If you're new and a place wants proof of traffic/earnings, then that's obviously not the right network for you at this time anyways.

    Just be honest. This section is full of people talking about how to lie, cheat, and steal from cpa companies. If you would just spend that time learning about legit scalable methods instead, you would be WAY better off. My $0.02...

    amcfad2, I have no desire to lie. But as a noob you just dont know what is required. And lying is what the stickies preach you.

    I just want in a network so I can start promoting a worthy offer with my hard work, and in return I want to get paid. Is that asking for too much?

    But why aren't the CPA networks transparent enough to state exactly what they need from the applicants, for example X number of uniques? That way people could work on that goal instead of posing?

    And how is it lying and cheating if the affiliates are only getting paid once the action is taken by a visitor? Going by the complaints of shaving and scrubbing, one could argue that the networks are the ones lying and cheating.
