    I had been driving CL job traffic to a Job offer recently. The conversions were exceptional. One fine morning, the ban hammer hit hard on my head. I almost fainted. This is my 2nd ban, with loads of money gone.

    How did they find out this time? The links were well cloaked, referrers perfectly faked, sent loads of junk traffic along with the converting traffic, and all those efforts put in resulted in a ban.

    How did they find out? I think, the advertisers called up/emailed the people who signed up, and they gave me away.

    How do we prevent this from happening? I don't care about the money that is gone. Money is never mine until it hits my bank, but all the efforts have been wasted, and all the money invested too have been wasted.

    How do you make sure that the people who signup don't give you away? Thats the only worry thats stopping me from putting any more work into cpa now, and i know i am loosing money.

    If the CPA people have really asked the sign ups then I can't see any way of not getting caught.

    @satyawrat - of course they want it to be whitehat thats why we spend the time to fake the referrer, cloak our links and send over lots of junk traffic..... To make it look like it is whitehat

    Never had any problem before I get emails from AM asking this n that but have always been paid.

    this has been discussed before, try to put a non-disclosure agreement so your leads wont sell you out. make a threat or something. this has been working fine for me.

    lol no. that would be the last resort. and i would threaten to file small claims to the cpa network/advertiser. what i talked about was putting a non-disclosure agreement between u and your cl leads, stuff like telling them "not to reveal your relationship between you and our company with any third party by all means"

    send less. send 5 a day over 20 networks, you'll be fine. also, they are looking for people who are interested in the offer, not people who think they are applying for a job by filling out the info.

    They can find out from a simple spam complaint. Happens if you mail the wrong loser with no life. Try to get some info from them, sometimes it's just out of your hands though.

    You should spread your earnings with 3 CPA companies.

    Make your domain redirect to 1 of the 3 random offers, 1 for each different CPA account.

    That is my tip for you :)

    You really CANT control how far the end user wants to take it after he/she has filled out your offer. Nothing you can do to stop them from picking up the phone, and if they're PISSED - then they're going to yell at whoever they can get in touch with (The Advertiser)

    The Advertiser then calls your Affiliate Network and chews them out -

    They call you and give you hell - and that brings us here.

    The best thing you can do is structure your ads to compliment the offer in such a way that is not totally misleading. If I'm applying for a job and an employer says...

    Oh - go to this site, this is our online application to see if you're going to be hired or not.

    next thing I know my inbox is full of spammy shit, and I still havent heard back from anyone about the job - Yea I'm going to be pissed off naturally.

    But if you tailor your ads/emails in such a way to convey what they will actually receive if they fill out your survey/offer - you'll stay in the green longer.

    Just noticed as I was finishing this that Jared255 pretty much said the exact same thing I did in two sentences.

    by the way you mean job offer, it's not biz op, right? because, as far as I see,most biz op advertiser don't care much about CL lead or not

    Send real leads, in a none blackhat way, to the correct offers with the lead knowing exactly what they're signing up for and why. ;)
