    Automation Tools for the Blacklisting Site IDs Phase of Campaign?

    Hi there, I was wondering if there were any tools which automated the donkey-work of blacklisting siteIDs on the way to getting to the set of siteIDs which were interested in a particular offer (which would then start the optimization process for the site IDs that worked). For this particular...

    How to Redirect Web Visitors According to Their GEO

    At the risk of this being in posted in too general a position on the forum (I thought of posting this in the Tracking section) ... I run divorce affiliate programs which have three different merchants, according to where my web visitors are based (their legal jurisdiction), and these...

    Technical Help Needed with Affiliate Link

    Hi, I tried to setup tracking on Bemob and I needed to use my affiliate link as the offer URL (the merchant client is not an affiliate network, but nevertheless does have affiliates). When testing the setup it was found that, instead of the offer page being shown, there was an error 500 page...

    New Campaign: Simple Install Offer Progress from Beginning to End

    After having tried three campaigns using paid traffic, all of them without a single conversion, I decided that perhaps I was being too ambitious. So I decided to go to the most basic offer and chronicle its progress for all to see on this forum. The offer is a simple Installer for Mac, target...

    Pop Tricks Such as onbackclick, on exit, on close

    Hi, I was reading about tricks that can be used with popups and popunders such as onbackclick, on exit, on close and various others, including sound and visual effects. I was wondering what seasoned affiliates thought of these. Do they enhance CR, or do they simply annoy people more than they...

    Click URL Making Affiliate Link Fail

    A puzzling thing has occurred. I've been running an affiliate program for several years using SEO; it's always been successful, but slow, so I wanted to boost it by using paid traffic. SO I set it up using Popcash and Bemob. All was well until it was tested. and it went to a 500 error page...

    Landing Pages Have Extremely Poor CTR

    I've just started a campaign in the dating vertical. I have 16 landing pages, but overall the CTR is 0.17%. So it's too early to say which LPs are better than the others. What can I do to get this terrible CTR up? Any ideas at this stage?

    On Testing Campaign URL I Get a Red Warning Screen...

    Hi, I've spent three days setting up a campaign, getting landing pages (16 of them) for my second paid traffic campaign. I'm at the testing stage, using Bemob, but when I enter the Campaign URL I get a nasty red warning screen (screenshot attached). Now, obviously I don't want people who...

    Tokens to Display Nearest Town or City on Landing Pages

    Hey there! I'm just thinking about those useful placeholder tokens which can be used to display the nearest town or city of the person who's viewing the ad or landing page. The system presumably uses GPS (or a version of it), with the fair certainty that the nearest named city/town will be...

    CTR Was 8% But Adding an Opt-in Box Reduced This to 0%

    Hi, I recently tried out my first paid traffic campaign with an offer which was a straight sale (not from an affiliate network) for which I made 3 pre-landers and tested them to find out which converted best. I used Bemob as my tracker. The pre-lander was converting my PopCash pop-unders to...

    Published Conversion Rates

    Hi, I noticed that there is a wide variation in the conversion rates of offers that are published on the Peerfly site. 1. Some CR figures consist of a column of zeros. Would I be right in assuming that this is because this offer has not been attempted by any affiliates? Or is it because the...

    Should I Use a Landing Page or Not?

    Hey folks, I’m confused because I see on the forum that Peerfly offers FORBID direct linking, but I see examples of direct linking to landing pages on the forum (I watched a tutorial video on that this morning where there was no landing page or pre-lander, and the visitor seemed, thereby, to go...

    I Already Have Web Hosting so Do I Need an AWS Account or Similar to Host Landing Pages

    Hi, I've just been reading about the importance of good, reliable and fast hosting for CPA affiliate LPs. This goes without saying. I have a hosting account with InMotionHosting (I've tried lots of hosts in my 20+ years as an SEO and InMotion are among the best for the cost) which hosts all my...

    Traffic To Test Existing Offers - Which are the Best Sources of Traffic to Newbies?

    I'm new to paid traffic although I have 20 years SEO experience. But ever since Google got into bed with Big Business it has been a downhill journey for classical SEOs like myself. I have a great offer I want to profit from. It's free to the user, which is why it should be relatively easy to...

    Experiences of Adplexity

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone here had experience of using Adplexity. The software, as I understand it, provides details of live, working affiliate programs which are running and therefore presumed to be successful. Its USP seems to be that it removes a lot of the guesswork from figuring out...

    Has anyone had any experience of the YTZ.com network, and in particular its smart-link rotating ads? I dusted off an old ebook recently which extolled its virtues. Does anyone know of these people? Thanks.
