Got Banned From MaxBounty Sad

24 replies
I'm pretty sad and I don't know the reason why am I got banned, I asked my affiliate manager and she goes like OMG you fraud I'm sad then she blocked me, I can't even call her.

My earning is $1,100 and spent around 2 month time and over $2,000 investment on it.

These are the only traffic sources I've used, and I know they are low quality traffic sources that may get you into trouble, and beware of using it.

- Facebook Ads
- 7Search
- Zeropark
- Qualibid

The method I used to promote is direct linking.
I'm speechless really, because I used to run RON traffic with 7search, zeropark and qualibid.

Everyone recommend using RON traffic on Zeropark, because keywords receive maybe 0 traffic at all.

Qualibid is low quality traffic this I understand as I've spent $120 and got nothing from them, some suggest them as they said pharma product gets them 600% ROI.

7Search works on e-mail and DOI for me.

Facebook Ads is costly for converting a lead so I gave up after spending $700 on it.

Well, they give me no answer why was I get banned and tomorrow 15th is my payout day.
I get banned a day before I got paid.

Actually I did asked many times is my lead okay, and they goes no problem.
I asked is the traffic doing etc, and I get answer like no problem.

Val my manager is pretty helpful and I pretty grateful of her helping.

I think that the traffic source I used have problem with them and they banned me.
Pity me my investment goes 0.

    This is not good..they should tell you the reason for banning you but the owner is a active member on this forum and he should be able to tell you the reason...

      Sorry to hear this. Those traffic sources are ones that other people use, without issue.

      If you can't get a response from them, try calling them on the phone. At the very least, they should offer an explanation of what happened.

        It's the process of generating fake leads illegitimately. They aren't coming from real users that would be valuable to the advertiser of the campaign, they're coming from the publisher themselves.

        Needless to say this is NOT allowed across the board on any network.

    I really hate making statements on publishers when they've been terminated, but when they go public like this, I'm not given much choice.

    We didn't terminate him from the network because payday is tomorrow, or because he used any of the sources listed. While it is possible that he used those sources to generate CLICKS to the offers, he was in fact either paying someone to complete the LEADS or doing it himself.

    The majority of his hundreds of leads came from a small subset of computers. Additionally, he used proxy servers to attempt to circumvent the geographic restrictions on the campaign as well as hide the fact that it was a small set of computers that generated the leads.

    This publisher is fraudulent and was rightfully banned for delivering fake leads.

      We always try to act in a professional manner magdag, however, we can only spend so much time addressing fraudsters who are oblivious as to what they're doing wrong.

      Our time is obviously better spent communicating with our hard working legitimate publishers.

      How are they not being professional?

      If you get terminated and you come to a public forum announcing it, the company has the right to come and defend itself and its practices.

      Just because they are straight shooters, doesn't means they are not professional.

      If you are generating fraudulent leads, they have to protect their advertisers, what else would you expect!?... Keep you going just for the sake of being nice!...

      I deal with lots of different networks, and to be honest, MB's staff are some of the best and most responsive people I have ever worked with, which is why I am constantly recommending them.

    i didnt fraud, i just believe it, its un fortunate and i accept it.
    i spent real money on these advertising network and i can proved it to you the amount of traffic i sent , im okay you banned me, but you cant said im a scammer. i didnt hire or register the lead myself why would i be the stupid after spending 2k of money on your network and spent so much time on trying to promote your offer. just because i sent over of 3k traffic in 20 minute using zeropark and you banned me, maybe thats the reason im okay. i doubt zeropark traffic source too, they have high ctr on lander about 20% ctr even on a shared hosting but when comes for registration they didnt get thru it. i have dumped $500 on zeropark, really unfortunate to me, also the weird thing is that every lander receive over the 20% ctr, not to mention only traffic from internet explorer browser get the highest amount of ctr 30%.
    chrome, firefox dont.

    at first im blurred and ask my manager why only 1 offer convert while sending over 60k of zeropark traffic to others doesnt convert, i think i know thr answer now.


    if you want the report of the money i spent and sent to your network i can show you.
    again i didnt scam, you can banned me but you cannot say i scam.

    Is there a traffic source that your purposely left out? a black hat source? Advertisers pay alot of money to CPA companies, and the last thing they want is to pay for fake traffic and fakes leads.

    he was in fact either paying someone to complete the LEADS or doing it himself.
    Sounds like a blackhat method. You can buy fakes leads, adsense clicks, followers, likes or anything nowadays.

      Honestly no, I wouldn't stupid for getting risk after spending $2,000.
      But ZeroPark traffic can push literally 40 leads in just 30 minutes, and I got around $80 a day profit(for now it's a lost) (didn't place postback on ZP)
      Of course the advertiser cap the leads amount to 20.

      I was excited of course, and put more money onto ZeroPark, even borrow money for that.
      I got partial list of "sub id traffic source"for ZeroPark that converts on that offer.

      I sometime feel I got tricked.





      You see I was really testing the traffic and figuring how it works,
      First month I was impatience and use all money in few days, and I become patience for the 2nd month and figure out how to work on this traffic source. Losing money of course overall. My $350 is gone here.

      Yeah, I started to get back CPS.
      They pay instant commission and that's what I like but of course conversion will be more difficult.

      CPA is more simple in my opinion, most of the offer bride you with something free.
      Like who don't want anything free?
      So it saves you the time on researching the difficult part like thinking the market of the product how to get a long term business on this product etc.

      You will just need to show them your offer is free and people will definitely sign up if they are interested.
      For CPS, you can only target demography with interested buyer.
      That means a certain keywords holds a level of buying intention.
      Keywords like buy, reviews, discount, offer, sales holds a great percentage of buying chance.
      While keywords like how to, what is, scam, hoax has lesser chance on buying the product.

      Thanks for your support mate. I'm okay.

    Maybe it was for the best, those numbers don't look well dude. Did you setup a squeezepage? Or did you just send traffic to the offer?

    Call them up - they do need to give you an explanation of why. I would bet the leads you delivered did not convert for the merchant, so if their conversion rate was really low (or a lot of chargebacks happened, etc) compared to their natural average then maybe that could be the reason.

    But call them up and see what they say.

      They blocked me after sending "I'm sad, you fraud".
      I understand what you mean, I guess CPA is not my game.
      Hard to get payout sometimes, but I have a solid learning curve of how cold traffic converts.

        When you give up, that's when you loose the game.

        Never GIVE UP. Keep pushing. Keep working hard. Revenue will come.

        I've had a bad day today. No sales. I look forward and I will KEEP pushing harder! Do the same

          Thanks for your kind word mate, I kinda working on 0 cost traffic, I really regret pushing all my money to the advertising fee which comes to 0 in the end.

          I will come back and post some result soon.
          You're right. "Never GIVE UP"
