    If I have any chance to get the commission after my account was terminated?
    I totally can not believe CJ send a mail to me, and the comments is that my account will be terminated after 15 days, because I buy too many key words to promote, and I have 2 CJ accounts.

    I want to know if I can receive the commission for these two account?

    Many thanks to you guys.

    Terminated because you bought too many keywords to promote? What's the rest of the story?

    Don't know if you'll get paid tho.

    While I can't be sure, I would suspect it's not the volume of the keywords, but rather the contents of the keywords (some that might need to be capitalized, you know, because they're a company name), that caused the problem.

    If that's the case, and you violated a merchant's PPC TOS, no money for you.

    That's more a merchant boot isn't it, not a network boot. Can't imagine a network booting out somebody because the didn't capitalize a word.

    No special story, I spent about $300 Google Adwords, and over $100 traffic because my site traffic is low, at first CJ ask me explain the traffic. I told them I bought some traffic. But seems CJ does not allow such promotion method.

    No, there's still more. Lots of people do PPC, nothing wrong with that, you're leaving something out. They suspected something wrong with the traffic. Why 2 accounts, were you getting traffic from other places besides adwords, adware? Were you doing TM bidding when the merchant didn't allow it, direct to merchant when the merchant didn't allow it. It's something else, it's not just using Adwords.

    Literally; how can you buy traffic? Where does purchased traffic come from? Sounds shady to me...

    Boom: They're just referring to utilizing Google AdWords or the myriad other PPC opportunities.

    Ok, sounded like he was saying that the traffic was a separate purchase. I could come up with no legit(ethical) way of purchasing traffic..

    There's other ways of "buying traffic", but it's usually (read: 99.9999999% of the time) total crap. I'm sure you;ve seen the emails:

    Get thousands of qualified shoppers to your site today for $19.99!

    I'd like to see the room they keep all those hungry shoppers in, just ready to bust out and buy something....

    With all due respect, from what I see here, you need to make an effort to write more clearly. Maybe you weren't doing anything wrong, but if you can't explain clearly to CJ what you're doing, they're going to get suspicious.

    There are some CJ affiliates who buy $thousands/day in ads, they won't drop you for that.
    They are probably concerned you are violating terms (putting affiliate links where not allowed, or email spam, or trademarked bidding)
    If you are clear with them how you got the traffic, chances are they'll just keep you in the program. If you answer them like you did here though, they won't understand you either and wouldn't bother to ask you to clarify.

    It's spelled out very clearly in most of the programs that there are specific keywords you can't buy pay-per-click traffic for. If you violate the terms, they have every right to not only close your account, but also to withhold payment.

    I have 2 accounts too, (at the suggestion of cj, because i have 2 major function differences).

    I imagine the person here had 1 account,and got dropped by some merchants for doing something bad, then created a 2nd account and signed up with the same merchants to do the same things?

    That sounds logical.
