    I bid on keywords on using the CTR methods
    I have built up a solid account with CJ for the past two months. I am expecting to get a big check today... But now I got this in my email....What is a brother to do? Do CJ not approve third party directing traffic to CJ merchants? Will they cut me off if they find that I am directing traffic because I bid on words with another merchant? Any advice would be appreciative.

    Maybe try checking out the link provided. There might be some information there? The OP hints at some of the methods used to send traffic, CJ apparently objects to some methods and then a more information link is provided.

    Hi Jodyq,

    Third party parasites are sites that download software on people's computers (usually without them knowing it), or bundle it into other software that users knowingly download. This parasitic software redirects links that honest affiliates generate to steal the commissions. If you click on the link that Trust posted, and 2busy reposted, it will take you to a thread about them. There is a whole section of this forum dedicated to parasites.

    Just like everything else in this world, there are dishonorable people in this profession who spend their time stealing from the hard work of others rather than working for themselves.
