    So I was just recently accepted to adscend media. After selecting an offer, I got my method set up. Basically I'm using facebook which convinces people they will get something free if they do a few steps (the last step is completing the offer).

    I ran this for two days and did pretty well. Now that I look back at the offer at adscend media, it says "NO INCENTIVES". I immediately changed the offer to another one which states "soft incentives okay". My question is am I going to be banned from adscend media because of this? Should I completely delete the facebook so the network can't trace back to how I monetized the traffic? Also is something like this okay to do for soft incentives?? Or is this still illegal?

    Thanks

    just use 2 different landing pages ..
    the page where people is going to complete the offer must NOT contain any sort/ sign of Incentives !

    i'm also into the same business & also looking for a JV . meet me at
    goo.gl / Ipobs

    So a simple redirect would work?

    As of right now the link posted on facebook goes to my website which redirects to the offer.

    simple redirect won't work
    you will have to blank the referrer
    however I won't recommend you doing that
    use incentive offers which allow fb traffic

    Thank you. Being fairly new to IM and cpas, what is blanking the referrer and why would you advise against it?

    The offer im currently using says "Incentives:Allowed, but no cash incentives or points sites. Soft-incent OK."
    It doesn't say anything about what types of traffic are allowed.

    Should I be worried when it comes time for payday since I used incentive on a non-incentive offer for the bulk of my income so far?

    Didn't blank the referrer cuz I think blogger doesn't allow that. Left it as is all day. I'm just wondering if I should be worried about being banned or not? Or if what I'm doing is even legal/allowed by the cpa network?
