Using cheap traffic to stay under the radar

    I have questions regarding using cheap traffic to keep your CTR and conversions rates down to reasonable levels while using BH methods.

    I have a blog with "TARGETED" banners on the site, these "TARGETED" banners are from 5 different CPA networks to promote 5 different offers but in the same vertical/niche. I am faking the referrer using CPA redirector.

    My goal is to keep conversions for these CPA offers to about 1% to stay under the radar.

    So if i convert 10 leads a day for each of the 5 CPA offers.... that's 50 conversions total. (10 leads each for each of the 5 CPA networks)

    So for every 10 leads I convert for the CPA networks I will need to provide 990 junk traffic hits to the CPA offer to keep CTR and conversions rates down to reasonable levels.

    So in each of the 5 CPA networks eyes ... if 1000 people clicked the banner and 10 completed the CPA offer for a total of 10 conversions with each CPA network. And everyone knows not everyone is going to click on the banners.

    Here are some very rough estimates >>> Studies have shown "TARGETED" banners only get clicked about 2-3% of the time from visitors. Clicked even less for UN-targeted banners.

    So using this 2-3% estimate here is what my math tells me >>> for every 1000 people to click my banners on my blog I would theoretically need about 2% CTR/50,000 people a day in the CPA network eyes.

    However if that CPA network visits my blog they will see I have 4 other CPA network offers being promoted at the same time. So they will be thinking "no way this blog gets this huge amount of traffic and were getting all the clicks on the banners"

    This would mean my fake blog would have to get 250,000 visits a day!(50,000 multiplied by five CPA networks = 250,000 visits a day!)

    No blog that i know of gets 250,000 visits a day!

    So here are my questions:
    1. How can I make everything look legit while converting 10 leads a day per CPA network? I am thinking I need 5 blogs maybe, but even 50,000 visits a day is still super high traffic.

    2. Wont it look strange if my blog is getting 5000 visitors a day with no Google serps rankings? of course I could be using other traffic sources to my blog such as myspace.

    3. Wont it look strange if they check compete.com they will see the traffic the site is getting is not even close.

    You can say that you are buying adware traffic to your blog.It costs $350 per day to get 50 k visitors to a page via mediatraffic if you select category targeting.

    Even If I do this it still will not be believable because at best case if I was making $12 per lead multiplied by 50 leads a day would mean I made $600 a day "IF" the CPA networks didn't shave the leads.

    But I am spending $350x5 CPA networks = $1750 a day I am spending.

    Now the CPA networks wont know I am not really spending that amount of money on adware, but that's what I will be telling them. But common sense would tell them its not profitable for me.

    Any other suggestions?
