    Hello everybody! I'm new to BHW and to CJ too. I've got a question to experienced CJ publishers. Which traffic do you recommend for promoting CJ adverts? Is it effective to buy traffic? If yes - what are the best places to buy? What about traffic from social networks? Thanks in advance for answers!

    Stick with targeted traffic from social networks, ppc and BH methods and throw in the "junk" traffic to mix it in a bit.

    make sure you read everything you can and learn about PPC if that is what you decide to do- it is not for newbies and you can easily lose the shirt of your back :(

    I did not have much Luck with ppc. I spent 60$ to get few hundreds of visitors that did not even buy anything :(. I had good luck with CL. plus it is free, just make sure you have a landing page and You are petty much covered. I did not have issues so far but Do not put the affiliate links on cl that i can tell will strike you.

    Pretty much depends on the offer you are promoting.

    Targeted PPC traffic is by far the best traffic source coupled with split testing.

    The thing about CJ offers which I have gathered in these years with them
    is that the traffic usually 'converts' a couple of days down the road.

    Oh yeah, once you have the conversion coming in, it might be necessary to
    throw in some junk traffic to dilute the figures. Else some am would come
    along and ask you where your traffic is coming from....

    Better to stay under the radar....

    I run a few sites that are completely whitehat, and I use CJ for certain parts ( I got Google adwords running on the rest ).... so anyway, I recently got one of them call "where your traffic from". I told the vendor plain and simple, I run a rather well optimized site and my traffic has a 4 year history with CJ. No vendor has ever complained about my site.
    He got belligerent with me, so I asked him for a small favor
    I said " go to my web site and load his page. "
    he did.
    then I said "reload your page please"
    he did and said to me "what the fuck, where is our ad"
    I said " open x adserver, keep the conversation going and I'll find a better replacement "

    that's been 2 weeks and now I rotate them with another affiliate program. I also wrote a letter to CJ and to the affiliate manager.

    CJ wrote back to say they could not understand the person, and the affiliate manager wrote back to advise me that he would handle my account personally.

    my white hat sites are in the simplest programs ( hotels.c0m and a few others ) so I don't need to fool around with my traffic, if your sites are clean, then never be under the radar. also don't fear doing redirects, if your site is good and you are bringing traffic from some other sources, no one but yourself has to know about it.

    best of luck, and don't fear the Affiliate Manager, he want's to make a buck too.

    PPC with CJ is recommended. read the policies carefully before you do it.

    Or try the sniper method if you're looking for cheaper traffic (of course it takes more time). You can read about it here on the forum.

    CS with CJ is very dangerous. I think they can catch you easily.:)
