    Hello all,

    I am new to cpa marketing. I am reading the faq but have a question.

    Why do we need to fake the traffic referers? What is the reason for doing that>?

    Because sometimes the way you get your traffic is not allowed by the restrictions of the specific CPA offer... Hence you need to pretend your traffic is coming from a permitted source.

    Because if I didn't fake my traffic I would be banned by now. I don't see the problem in CL traffic myself ;).

    Faking the traffic is probably alluding to faking the referrer- you are faking the traffic's source.

    Blanking the referrer simply makes it appear as it was either direct traffic or there was no referrer.

    Isn't it also so they can't see how you obtained your traffic?
    Like keywords someone said and better information that the advertiser can use themselves and gain the same traffic you are getting.

    this is something I'd advise against in your position. Give it a go down the road if needed.
