    I see some cpa offers have "NO SCRUB" beside them. What does this mean?

    Also, there are two versions of the same cpa offer. First version converts at first page, but does not have "NO SCRUB". Second version converts at second page, but is tagged "NO SCRUB". Which one is better?

    No scrub means that the advertiser theoretically won't scrub any leads - they'll take whatever you send them. In reality, they'll still scrub some of them.

    The only way to see which is better is to test - you can't tell in advance whether first page with scrub will make more money than second page without scrub. Remember payouts or conversion ratios on their own don't matter - the only thing that really counts is which option makes you the most $$$ per click that you send.

    I generally prefer to go no scrub with shittier traffic (eg. Twitter) and go first page scrub with higher quality, more targeted / motivated traffic.

    lol... It makes me laugh when they advertise "no scrub", all it says to me is send us rubbish traffic.

    Example: If you had 100 clicks and 1 conversion, they might make it look like you only had 75 clicks instead of 100 so that your ePC looks higher than it actually is.

    Be careful which companies you work with because several networks out there do in fact do this. Lucky for you, we don't ;)

    Best of luck to you!
