Disallowed Traffic Methods
Making sure that your promotion methods are aligned with the ones that we allow on PeerFly is the best way to keep your account out of trouble. Every offer has its own restrictions, here’s some information on our most common.
Traffic from classified ads sites such as Craigslist or USFreeAds is not allowed on PeerFly.
Promoting offers with mobile web traffic is fine as long as the offer allows it, and is popular with our publishers. However, we do not allow any offer to be sent out via SMS/text messaging services. Interested in running mobile traffic through PPC? Talk to your AM for some tips!
Due to past issues with spam, we do not allow any offer to be promoted via Twitter. We will keep you informed with any updates to this policy as our industry changes.
Co-reg, short for co-registration, can be confusing. Basically, users should never be opting in to more than one offer at a time or be required to invite friends to continue. With the majority of paid traffic sources, co-registration isn’t something that you’re going to encounter.
If an offer allows Social PPC, you’re free to promote it on Facebook through their paid advertising platform. We’ve recently started to allow publishers promote on approved fan pages, handled on a case-by-case basis.
Some general guidelines to
- Page must have 10,000+ fans.
- Fan pages need to be about a specific topic – Golden Retrievers, NFL Football, Traveling to Paris. Personal pages are not allowed.
- Offers must be relevant to the page’s content.
- Offers cannot be direct linked to PeerFly.
If you would like to submit your page for approval, send a link and a sample of your ad copy to your Affiliate Manager!
NO Trademark Bidding
Trademark bidding refers to the keywords you bid on in a PPC campaign, and some offers do allow it. When they don’t, that means that you cannot bid on that advertiser’s trademarked product name but you can still include it in your adcopy. If you have any questions about what constitutes a trademark, let us know!
Forums and Blog Comments
We don’t allow offers to be posted within forums, or as comments on blogs or social media sites.
We allow offline marketing on a case-by-case basis. If you have an idea for a campaign, feel free to send your creatives and a description of your campaign to your affiliate manager and we’ll do our best to get it approved!
The Word “Free”
Since most of our offers require participation, it’s important that you don’t promote them as free or at no cost. Both advertisers and networks are cracking down, so make sure you’re compliant!
