    So let's say someone has a website with CPA links and he's driving traffic using a forbidden method. So he blanks the referral (which is his own website) for the advertiser. I don't get why, the advertiser will never know how you got the traffic apart from checking SE for rankings or PPC ads, what am I missing here?

    SE is not the only source
    and moreover keyword is more imp than the traffic source

    incase if u r using black hat methods for driving traffic to your cpa account it will get banned as soon as your affiliate manager gets to know

    The question is, how will he know if you don't tell him? The only referral visible is your site.com

    Because when they go to site.com, they will see whatever blackhat methods you've employed...

    Best to fake the referer as othersite.com.
