    Isn't it illegal to post an add that doesnt lead to the site when you ppc? Like if my CPA was for toysrus and i put the url toystoysnow.com and it redirects you to toysrus isnt that illegal becuase I tried to do that with google with something else and it didn't work but it works on facebook!

    I clicked this add and it lead directly to the site. then i pressed back and this link showed up really fast. if this is against forum rules tell me!! i dont wanna get baned!

    I've done it many times before and i've never had any problems with my cpa's.
    As far as i know this isn't illegal.
    What cpa network is this offer you're promoting from?

    Sounds like the big G does not like redirects...I personally would not know as I don't PPC.

    But that is what it sounds like.

    Google's rules for adword-cpa-campaigns are pretty simple:
    No direct linking to data submits (zip, email), no direct
    linking to i-frame sites, no direct linking to sites which are
    redirecting (to the landing page), no direct linking to "low quality"
    or "bridge" sites which have very poor content (only one presell
    page or "voting" page).
    A lot of no-no's which make many guru recommendations on cpa
    obsolete.

    Why not read their TOS and Guidelines? It's pretty clear.

    hxxp://www.faceb00k.c0m/home.php#/ad_guidelines.php

    That said, ad approval is manual *me thinks*. One time I was approved immediately for a diet pill cpa (which was subsequently disapproved about 2 weeks later) and another time for a similar cpa offer, i was disapproved right away. It violated their guidelines.

    They usually email warnings first. So, advertise with caution.

    Why would it be illegal? It can only be illegal if there is a law restricting it. I think you mean against TOS.

    You can get away with violating many of facebooks policies. All you need is a lazy manual reviewer to give you a pass. If you submit something that violates their policies with 20 different minor variations 1 of them will get through.
