    I read a post here in BHW that talked about using contest/threads to drive traffic that would convert affiliate offers. This gave me a great idea but it also reaised a few questions that I am unable to answer myself:

    1. How would I keep track of how many and which offers contestants completed?

    2. Would the affiliate networks know that the offers are being "incentivized" even if the sweepstakes is being promoted on a site separate from where the offers are being displayed?

    3. How can i insure that the contestants complete my offers that are displayed on my site? Would setting up a site that just displays offers with little or no content be a solution?

    If you know programming you can easily set it up so the network tracks who completes what offer by tracking the users email or some other way to identify the user.

    It would be best if you stick to incentive allowed offers in case the network decides to investigate your account. They won't be able to do anything to you for using incentive offers for an incentive purpose.
