    Ok, so I had my adwords campaign setup and is doing great after extensive tweaking and twisting.

    Got my ads on page one of google search results. Network agreed to place my tracking pixel on the order page of the product and allowed me to blank referral. I don't want to give away my landing pages.

    The weird thing is this: ANOTHER network I'm a member of, sent me an email telling me that it had got to their attention that I own a site/blog about "that product" and they gave me a link to my landing page BUT with the keyword tracking code added to it.

    This made it clear that they found it via adwords. They then said that they have a wide range of best converting offers for that product and asked me to take a look at their offers and consider them as well!

    Ok, first thing: I have NO CLUE how they found out I was the owner of that site. I bought a whois protection for that domain and there is no way they can tell I was the owner.

    Second thing: This puts my landing pages at risk of being stolen by networks. I also don't think that blanking the referral would be suffice to prevent my first network from discovering my landing pages.

    Any ideas?

    Here are my guesses. It could be any one or combination of these:

    1. Network B is brokering the offers to Network A
    2. Maybe you listed the LP website in your profile page of Network B
    3. Maybe the blanking domain you're using is not privately registered
    4. Maybe you used the same blanking domain for both Networks
    5. There's a leak in your blanking script
    6. IP Address similarity between your sites
    7. Your Network AMs are chummy with each other.

    Regardless, that's good that Network B wants your business. Throw em a bone and get your PPC groove-on with their offers.

    Thanks omgreally! (nice name btw!)...

    but it turned out it was simpler than that. I simply forgot to "activate" the whois protection subscription. Bought it, but forgot to activate it...grrrr.

    Afterall, it may have been a good thing network B found out about my site. Maybe I can ask for higher payout.
