    Hey

    Seriously who cares about impressions/CTR etc...

    Just say you are sending directly to the link, i say they would only be suspicious if the conversion rate was over 2%

    I suppose that you mean Adsense? The link is dynamic, not static. Wouldn't work.

    Now the tag is static, and you can force an IE browser to automatically click it, but if anyone checked your page it would be obvious.

    From my experience, you need to send to them what they expect or less in terms of conversion rate. If they say a ad should get a 2% conversion, and your blowing it up with a 74% conversion (that's a extremely exaggeration, but you get the point), they are going to be suspicious, and start going over your traffic with a fine tooth comb.

    I like to stay under the radar, if not totally not show up on the radar at all. That's just the way I like to do it.

    I don't care about CTR as well and do direct linking to almost 90% of my CPA offers in every network I am with.

    Its always good as a rule of thumb if you are making bank, and i mean MAKING BANK, to mix in traffic to somewhat water down conversion rates, because when I get the dreaded "where do you get your traffic from?" phonecall, I can tell them that I took the offer url directly and hyperlinked it in some articles and some text on my blog, as well as mixed it up with some traffic sources, which would explain my high conversion rate and not make me look suspicious. By having a nicely ranked site in alexa, the amount of clickthroughs you get on hyperlinked text will seem plausible to your AM and, voila, no banned account.

    every time i use direct linking i have no problem with them questioning my traffic until i start converting...then all of a sudden they want to know exactly how i got the conversions
