    they wont ban you for any particular conversion rate based ONLY on the conversion rate.
    it might raise some eyebrows and draw attention to yourself and invite some deeper digging, but as long as there are no complaints from the advertiser and everything is legit you shouldnt have anything to worry about.

    now, if there are complaints from the advertiser that your traffic is shit, or suspicious, etc.. then it doesnt matter what your conversion ratio is, your gonna have some problems.

    padding the conversion ratio is just to be used for not drawing attention to yourself, nothing more. it wont save you if your traffic is shit.

    but to answer your question, depends on the offer and what it is converting at network-wide. but a safe # is always around 5%.

    ^^^ It's also a good idea to water down or pad the conversion rates in an attempt to keep advertiser shaving/scrubbing at bay on trial/rebill offers. I do it on everything I run because most advertisers are shady as f**k and shave to the moon even with legit WH traffic that they like the quality of.
