    Well i just got accepted into some real strict cpa networks and i plan on doing some real black hat methods and i plan on raking in 5-6k a month, i know that not much to some but im 18 this is all i need right now. The thing is i could make 10-15k a month its just i am real worried that they will find out. My method will still convert for the advertiser so i really dont think they will complain its just im really paranoid. Yeah i know faking the referer throwing junk traffic blah blah but do you think this is enough i mean 10-15k is alot of money and i know some of these networks love keeping that kind of dough for their selves.

    So if the pros could give me some advice links resources software etc that would be kool thanks.

    Talk to your AM on at least a weekly basis. If you're in contact and are straight up saying I won't show you my landers, you will have a lot more leeway then if you get investigated, have never spoken to anyone, and refuse to tell them anything. When I mailed I used to ask my AM if the traffic was converting alright for the advertiser - if they say yes you're all set. If they say no, go from there.

    So bascially if the advertiser does not complain they have no reason to go look into how i am generating my traffic?

    Staying in contact with my am will not be a problem, as far as the landing pages i could always fake those and let him see it i guess i will try to be as open to them so it doesn't look like i am up to something.

    Never lie to your AM. Without giving 100% details of your method, talk to your AM in general terms. 90% AMs are pretty cool with BH methods unless it is filling forms by yourself. Your AM may even talk to your merchant in advance or at best may even find out an offer where merchant is absolutely cool with your promotion tricks.

    Also always go for weekly payments.

    just get more cpa networks. spreak 5k over 10 networks. if you're running "real black hat" traffic without any white hat traffic , you're going to get busted sooner or later. they'll see that you're converting like shit on the backend (even if the leads do convert on the back, it wont be anywhere near wh traffic) and ban you with no pay. spread your campaign over many networks to stay below the radar.

    Simple: leads need to convert for the advertiser somehow. No one's gonna give you 10k as a charity kind of thing, so either you split that 10k, so that you only 'steal' 1k over 10 networks from advertisers or you try to find converting BH traffic + WH advertising (IMO this is by far the best option). Remember no advertiser will spend money on your leads if its not making money for them ;)
