    When you promoting affiliaite program using blackhat, you may use shorturl services to hide your referral link. then visitor cant see your referral id. But when he wants to report you, i think he can discover it.

    For example here is hostgator link:
    http://secure.hostgator.com/~affiliat/cgi-bin/affiliates/clickthru.cgi?id=hostgator

    And here it is over TinyURL masked:
    http://************/nowitshidden (add TinyURL dot com instead of ***)

    But i think there are ways to analyse such redirects and get the id?

    Probably end is that cookie with aff. id is saved and such a thing canot be hidden right?

    The cookie will turn you in , you cannot avoid that. Your aff cookie = your sale / money / earnings

    iff someone is smart enough they can use longurl.com to see where it goes. in this situation you can just double your shortener or triple it. I don't really use affiliate links but what about using frames so you don't even need a url shortener. Not sure if that breaks the TOS

    Nothing he'll do can prevent that, cause he's affiliate marketing and based, obviously, on cookies. So, even if you create million frames and redirection, still, the final url will always be the one that drops the cookie, or even if the aff url is not final, but somewhere along the way, the cookie dropping will turn him in cause it contains he's affiliate ID

    There is no way for cookies mate. But I can recommend you many other way of cloaking like goo.gl and if you are using wordpress you can go for wordpress pretty link.

    Sales are not affiliated with your account then. It would only work out if a sponsor would check if the sales are coming from certain domains (yours) and then put your affiliate IDs on the visited website (invisible to user). But it only works for a huge affiliates.

    I would use a URL redirect with what looks like a fake aff link. For example:

    1.) Use a redirect, 301, wpshorties, or URL shortner to a framed website. The redirect is to a real url with this fake crap at the end after the ?. Make up a letter and put = some random number or whatever, then put the & and aff = whatever... make sure it's not your actual aff code. Be creative, use the wrong affiliate company and everything.

    Code:
    www-YourRedirectUrl-tld/niche-whatever.html?a=3049&aff=yourniche4&df=maxbounty
    Then at that niche-whatever.html make a frame.

    Code:
    <frameset><frame src="www-AnotherRedirectURL-tld/go/niche"></frameset>
    Then redirect that www-AnotherRedirectURL-tld/go/niche/ to your actual affiliate link. Most will see the www-YourRedirectUrl-tld/niche-whatever.html?a=3049&aff=yourniche4?df=maxbounty and try to report that, thinking that you're just dumb.
