Over the past few months I have been working on a new project called Skrayp. I’ve been running PPV traffic and noticed that there really wasn’t a good way to find good URLs and keywords to target without going to Google. The process is time intensive and the programmer inside of me was telling me it could easily be automated and made much more efficient. So, I started working on a PPV scraper.
I created a very ugly, but functional prototype and started testing it out. I was scraping hundreds, if not thousands of new keywords and URLs every day and adding them to my various campaigns. Using Prosper202, I could see that many of the new targets that I was adding to campaigns I had been running for weeks were starting to convert!
I offered to let some of my publishers at PeerFly that run PPV traffic a chance to try out my prototype. After about a week I started to get good feedback from them on things that needed changed/improved and that’s when I decided to create Skrayp.
How does Skrayp work?
If you aren’t familiar with PPV advertising then you are probably really confused on what exactly a → Continue Reading
Voluum is the latest tracking software to hit the market and it’s quickly becoming a popular option. I have had hundreds of my PeerFly publishers ask how to setup their campaigns within Voluum so I thought I would write up a quick tutorial to explain how easy it is.
First, let’s take a look at the benefits of using Voluum. Using a 3rd party tracking software gives you many options that normal network tracking like we have at PeerFly simply does not offer. For example, with Voluum you can easily split test multiple offers with a single link. You can also see a quick breakdown of how well your campaigns are performing by traffic source. Essentially, you can analyze and optimize your campaigns much easier when using a 3rd party tracking software like Voluum.
Setup a PeerFly Offer on Voluum
Of course, to use Voluum you must first be signed up. Voluum has a free “NOOBIE” plan that you can use to get started. Sign up here.
Add Affiliate Network
Once you’re logged in, let’s add PeerFly as a “New affiliate network” under “Affiliate networks” within Voluum:

Then, add your traffic source. Here is an example → Continue Reading
Over the past few months we have seen a lot of changes with how Facebook is treating Facebook Pages in users News Feeds. They have cut back on the average reach you will see with each post you make on your Page, but I believe there is still a lot of opportunity with Pages and I have been making updates to my tool, FPTraffic, to help maintain my reach and help other members as well.
Mixing Links and Photos
A few months ago I released a feature on FPTraffic that allows you to easily search through the millions of products available on Amazon.com and automatically schedule any of those products to be posted to any of your Facebook Pages with a click of your mouse. You can use your Amazon Associates ID and get credit for every sale generated within 24 hours of someone clicking on your link!
The Amazon feature was the first to allow FPTraffic members the ability to mix links in with their photo posts. Photos on Facebook have always gotten the highest engagement rate so that’s what I focused on for years, but with the recent changes I have found that you can actually help increase your engagement rate → Continue Reading
When I was in Las Vegas for Affiliate Summit West earlier this year I had the opportunity to meet a lot of awesome new people. However, the guys from ZeroPark really made a great first impression on me. They had a nice looking booth and when I stopped and talked to Robert, the CEO and owner of ZeroPark, I could tell that he knew what he was talking about and within a few minutes I knew we were going to be working together.
ZeroPark is a traffic network where you can bid on traffic from domain redirects. Domainers (people who buy domain names to sell or to advertise on) “park” their domains with ZeroPark and then earn revenue every time someone goes to that domain. ZeroPark will then sell the traffic from those domains to advertisers on ZeroPark.
The traffic from ZeroPark is called “zero-click” because when the user goes to the parked domain they are automatically redirected to whichever advertiser at ZeroPark has the highest bid for that domain. They do not actually need to click a link to be taken to the advertisement.
This type of traffic is similar to PPV pop ups, but from my experiences so far, → Continue Reading
