    Aren't cpa networks supposed to redirect the traffic (if offer is gone) to at least something instead of wasting it with this message:
    "The link you have requested is no longer available." ?

    I don't get it, I would surely be mad if I came from vacation to see that offer is gone and my traffic is not redirected to at least something, but just wasted for nothing :confused:

    I also don't like this, some networks should redirect dead / paused offers link to similar offers. And I think it's better for both affiliates and networks.

    Great post :)

    Yes, even if they don't have similar offer they should redirect to at least something. Why would they want to waste traffic anyway?

    @ OP - Typically they'll throw the offer on a redirect but it's not always the case. It's up to you as the pub to keep an eye on your campaigns and make sure everything is loading correctly. I use to run into the same problem with EWA when I was running my traffic to them. Offers would go dead and I'd end up pissing away clicks (PPC) on a dead offer page if I wasn't watching things closely.

    If it keeps happening with your existing network I'de send my traffic to another network if I was you. ;)

    @ jerrycorlisscj - Nice job copy/pasting my sig nearly word for word. I hope you're more of an original thinker when promoting your campaigns. :rolleyes:

    it is not possible because all campaigns use IP geo-target.

    No way to check offers manually

    Then you probably aren't using the best proxies for your purpose...I've never had an issue when checking offers that are out of the US.
