    I was looking at AdFly and noticed that they offer cheap traffic for $0.4 per 1,000 unique visitors. And they call it "proxy traffic".

    I was just wondering if it was safe to send it to a CPA offer? This offer will be on ShareASale.

    I was just wondering if ShareASale or the advertiser could tell that it is proxy traffic? Does proxy traffic look different than normal traffic to the network/advertiser?

    I can fake the referrer, but I was just wondering if the IP/geo would cause trouble?

    How so? I don't want the traffic to convert to leads. So where would the problem be?

    If the traffic has some footprints, that'll taint your converting traffic too

    What do you mean by footprints?
