Using some networks for BH and others for WH?

8 replies
I always believe in WH methods, but with all these list of CPA networks, do people join a lot of them so they can experiment with various traffic sources and techniques?

Are there CPA networks where you use only WH techniques -- mostly big networks?

And are there CPA networks where you test BH methods -- mostly smaller networks?

    Personally I won't touch BH stuff, too easy to lose a reputation and money. Even with a small network.

    I'm sure some people do that and despite your opening sentence, I hope you aren't heading down the dark side either.

    The stinky thing about BH is that you have to always worry about getting commissions denied. The more dark you go, the more you have to worry.

    But the thing is that there is soo much opportunity doing white, why not just focus on that. You'll be able to sleep better, make more, worry less, etc. Its just as easy to go white as it is black, so just go white!

    Networks talk to each other, it wont be long before your name & company are blacklisted in shared database. BH is bad for the Advertiser, Network, & Customer.

    Yeah, like the above poster said, alot of networks probably have blacklists and if you got on the list, then you may never have access to a decent CPA network again.

    if you get banned from one affiliate network, chances are you will be blacklisted and every time you try to apply to others, the networks will check the blacklist to see if your name is there.

    Good luck trying to fool them since all of them require your SSN before applying anyways so i wouldn't recommend it unless you know what your doing...

      First of all, I highly suggest staying clear of the dark side. As a side note, most networks ask for your tax id, not necessarily your SSN. Tax ID can be your EIN for a company you just started 10 minutes ago!
