    ...can this be done? At first glance, it seems to work, at least with zip/email offers, even using the same proxy over and over, both to inflate hits and to sign up. I'm using web proxies, like those found on proxy.org.

    Does anyone do this or have any advice on it?

    You'll get banned eventually even if you're very careful. They'll catch on, ESPECIALLY if you're using the same proxies over and over

    What I always say when people ask this is if the only way you can make money in IM is by using proxies or having other people fill out your offers for you , you are in the wrong business.

    Heh, yea it's the most barbaric form of bh income and of course it can be done but the real fact of the matter is that people have been doing this for years and CPA companies have become adept at monitoring.

    The network can cross reference data, and none of your leads are going to convert which will cause every advertiser to drop you like a hot potato. Using public proxies is probably one of the worst ideas with this method, the networks can easily find these lists and see what your up to.

    All in all, if you don't know this much, it's not a great place to start.

    it can be done. if your smart you won't get caught. but using proxies is not the way to go about it.

    a lot of CPA companies check the same proxy lists most people are passing around. they can leech proxy lists just like everyone else, and they do, and they check against these. i dont know how often they check against known proxy lists with your leads, but i know they occasionally do, dont know how often (maybe daily,who knows)

    How about using IP address hiding/changing software or browser plugins? How do these things fare? I'm thinking of using the TOR Project to cloak myself while completing offers. Anyone here ever tried this, or have something to say about this? :)

    As havok said, doing it isn't internet marketing. It's being a parasite on the internet marketing community.

    I hardly ever use proxies. Also, they are so damn slow and as soon as you find a good one, it is gone the next day.

    But isn't it one of those many methods that make up what we call "black hat?" This is Blackhatworld.com, right?

    Don't waste your time doing strictly this. If your doing 100% bunk leads you'll get a kick in the pants from the affiliate company soon enough. If you have good, real conversions and you mix in a few of DIY offers you probably won't get banned. Make sure you mix in whitehat/junk traffic so you get good conversion rates. IMO, it's easy enough to get leads with black hat and many affiliate companies will turn a blind eye to it AS LONG AS THEY CONVERT. A lot of places paying $10+ a lead actually follow through with these and if they see your leads have invalid #'s or people who say wtf are you talking about, the advertisers will contact you.

    Edit: oh and buy proxy's from a private source not from a proxy shop on the web. Find someone who sells socks4/5 proxy's from regular home computers and not from big company pc's. I'm sure you know where these come from, but imo they're safe and fast.

    Not worth the risk and not enough reward.

    really? you skip past all the posts advising you to STAY THE FUCK AWAY from doing this (especially from people who know what they are talking about), and you respond to the two that say it can be done, really:confused:? Goodluck my friend.

    but just in case you some how missed the posts I'll just say it one more time.....DON'T FUCKIN' DO IT.....sorry if i came across as an ass, but wow!
