    Finally after reading this forum and being with this forum for so long, today for the very first time EVER I started to think like black hatter and implemented cookie stuffing to one of my website.

    I know this is my start so just wanted to celebrate with my other fellows, I dont know if I will succeed or not, but I will read this thread in future FOR SURE and see how I started...

    I love this forum and if I succeed in any other things that I am planning to do that I have learnt from here, all the credit will certainly go to this place and the fellows who are keen to help..

    thanks everybody and wish me luck :)..

    Did you use CS.com or are you using one of your own methods?

    Ya Maxell good luck keep up informed.

    I think i have all the info and tools need to get started , but I guess I'm just scared LOL , intimidated or feel I don't know enough about it in my mind to get started just don't want to screw anything up and get caught the first time.

    Thanks to you Ritu/cashcorp/harro and anyone else that I might have forgotten that has posted some awesome info on CS , it sure helps out to understand it better.

    Thanks Guys

    well am not using anyone;s else script, I have apllied some of simple yet clever methods of my own, and am doingthis get myself banned, if I will be banned I wont mind becuase this is my first test and am not expecting anything but a ban, this way I will learn a lot and proceed, and am sure one day I will have a very smart system of my own..

    congratulations !

    I started 2 weeks ago on one of my sites, very small scale and pretty detectable, so it scares me a lot, but I don't think the affiliate program will come after me for 2 $ a day :p

    Once I'll have implemented some nice rotating script ans have a routine for keeping CTR low I'll move to a larger scale...

    Good Luck

    Congratulations Maxell! Would you mind to share about your way?

    It would be interesting, because I know a very easy and simple way to detect any cookie stuffing activity on a page. I am wondering if affiliate companies wouldn't know about this simplest and oldest method to detect cookie stuffing.

    well, as I posted another thread in which I invited all the people who are earning through cookie stuffing to post wether they eer got paid by the affiliates or at the end their accounts got banned, my method is simple I am cookie stuffing people on my own forums with an image which is undetectable to some extent, but there are many other things that should be considered, as I said I just started I hope after 5- bans, I will be perfect in this field, but who knows my current method doesnt get caught..

    Well, if you can avoid to be suspected about doing CS, that's fine.
    But do you know any way to escape from a direct check?
    The simplest way to detect CS activity is to set your browser to prompt about every cookie to be set. Having your browser set up in this way, you may visit the page suspected to stuff cookies, and you will get a prompt about every cookie to be set.
    Eventually you may use IP detection to redirect some IP ranges to a non-CS page.

    that would be too advaced, and I have seen this discussedd here, but how can be find the IP range of the ebay and amazon staff's computer, seems almost impossible to me, may be we can check ifthe REFERER is ebay.com or cj.com or the one we are using, then may be we will not stuff cookies to those users and also keep their ip for future to add some ip range and avoind stuffing them.. just an idea..

    You are right, that would be too difficult. How about targeting some "safe" IP ranges, and grow the white list one by one, by trial and error?
