    What is technically considered twitter or facebook traffic to a CPA network.

    I have one site that does phenomenal, mainly because people Retweet or Share Posts on Twitter or Facebook.

    I have never put my affiliate link on Twitter or FB But my website is all over the place which then links to my Affiliate ID on my website, so My site is always the referrer.

    Is this against the TOS of Networks that forbid FB and Twitter Traffic?

    I am considering starting to Use Tweet attacks to see if I cant make some more but im not too sure how far I am wanting to push it.

    Id say this is one of those occasions where it may vary from network to network. Your source is social, but its passing by your site so looks different.

    I would suggest you talk to your CPA network and see what they say, I wouldnt "trust" any general advise on this one.

    I think network doesn't care from where you get a traffic to your website. It is just important that you don't promote offer URL directly through FB or Twitter.

    Depends on the proxy
    You buy TweetAttacks then the next thing you know is you have to buy TweetAttacks Account creator too!! Then the next thing you know is you need Recaptcha service to all Twitter accounts you make and DONT make..

    And then next thing you know that you are getting banned after 2 tweets max................


    It's too saturated now.


    I have a unique method to generate $$ from any sort of traffic but the problem is I SUCK WHEN IT COMES TO BRING IN TRAFFIC! :D And I'm not proud of it.

    It's very hard to be in my shoes when you know that you have a unique method which you yourself have made it but you are not able to bring in traffic.

    That was the reason I bought TA and TAAC but it was of no use at all!

    I'm thinking to give IM :(

    I found Twitter traffic to be the hardest to convert, so much more it's useless in terms on conversion

    The beauty of traffic is that its just like money, once you give them they're not your money anymore. Same with traffic, once they hit a site, the next site they'll visit is called to have traffic from your site. Of course if its done through a click (user-initiated action). If you're pop-upping or redirecting, that's called referral cloaking and is thus blackhat.

    Peerfly doesn't allow affiliate links on Twitter / Facebook because of those websites' advertising ToS. If they would allow, Twitter and Facebook Advertising would lose money, and Peerfly would risk loosing a lawsuit.

    Also a word on referral cloaking; if you're going with the regular HTTP header redirect, make sure you use two serialized redirects, and you redirect users based on their referral. This means that on Twitter, you post www.A.com which redirects to www.B.com. Both www.A.com and www.B.com check to see whether the referral is Twitter or not. If it is, www.B.com then redirects to the offer otherwise redirect to Google.com or something else. This way when Peerfly checks out your referral, they'll see Google.com or something else, instead of a blackhat-ish redirect coming from an unknown source.

    However, nothing can protect you from Twitter seeing the affiliate link in the last redirect and complain to Peerfly. Maybe iframing the offer with a fullscreen iframe might make them think they're on a different website, but they can still check with Ctrl+U and complain.

    no way! these are nothing but Face book or twitter traffics. and its totally OK dude. you can continue doing this. actually most of the networks don't think about your source of traffic, they just think about the TRAFFIC :)

    that makes sense. i have found tweeters tend to be distracted, impatient, and have very short attention spans so you have to make their call to action quick and easy or you'll lose them

    they are not the same creature as visitors that click a link from a blog or forum post where they are taking more time to read and digest the information
