    I'm promoting some zip/email submits in hydra. and some of the offers has "NO SCRUB" at the end of the title.... but almost most of them says "email traffic only"

    what's the deal?

    So I can't promote them on my blogs?

    A simple Yahoo search turned up a definition from our friends at WF:

    With CPA it means that you get paid as long as the person clicks the submit button. Afterwards, the company will go through and "scrub" all the submits to remove duplicate entries and false entries. With no scrub, it just means you don't have to worry about that.

    Kinda reminds me of a TLC song . A scrub is a guy who thinks he is fine also known as a buster .

    Sorry I apologize but when I read that title it just threw that song in my head .

    But to know what it means a quick google search came up with an exact representaion . Of lead scrubbing

    Code:

    Sorry had to wrap the url as for some reason the anomyizer thing is not working .

    Ahhh ok... sorry i didn't know what i meant. I thought these are somehow related to email traffic... becoz all of them says "email traffic only" in hydra.

    So are these "no scrub" offers better? but i don't do email traffic.... means i can't use them huh...

    It means YOU aren't allowed to promote that offer :)

    J/K, yes, no scrub offers would be better, since you don't have to worry about "duplicate" leads, or shaved leads that are passed by as "duplicate"

    Who cares if it says email only? We're in a friggin blackhat forum, as long as you blank referrers, how the fuck are they gonna know whether the leads come from email campaigns or PPC or whatever? Just do it but hide your tracks.

    Hate to rain on the parade, but no scrub isn't always no scrub, but it is a way to entice affiliates to the offer.

    When I hear "no scrub" I just assume that means "we'll find another way to fuck you out of leads, you just won't be aware of it" :)

    Remember that in most cases, the tracking pixel that gives you credit for a lead of any kind is generally on the next page or the confirmation page. It's not hard to write a script that swaps that page out with a duplicate (less the pixel) to suck in some free leads.
