    I just realized I probably need to hide my traffic sources from my Affiliate Manager. I'm getting a good bit of traffic off of CL, but I just realized if someone typed link:mysite.com in google, they would see a few hundred CL posts. What would be the best way to cover that up? Or atleast cover that up in the future? I'm already using noindex atribute, but is there more I could/should do?

    you can request a page removal in the google webmaster tools.
    you can also use a landing page with meta redirect to your main page in the CL ads

    do a domain re-direct perhaps... and rotate the domains...

    ie CL links to a a throw-away domain - this ta-domain auto redirects to your actual domain...

    //update justone beat me to it! LOL

    Hmm... can you write an .htacces (mod_rewrite?) redirect that will take do this:

    Offer Link:
    throwaway.com/actual/path/of/landing/page/
    redirects to:
    realurl.com/actual/path/of/landing/page/

    Basically, so that the any hit to the throw away site will redirect it to the real url, but maintain the path to the article? I would prefer not to have to create a new site every time I want to post to CL.
    The reason I want to do it this way is so that I can add a token to my CL poster and cycle throw away domains in place of the real one to make them even harder to ghost.

    NM, I think a standard redirect maintains the file structure
    Haven't tried it yet, but this may work.
    Code:
    redirect 301 / http://www.you.com/

    Yep works. This thread can close if need be.

    FYI for anyone thinking about hosting get it with a CPanel backend... it has a GUI that you can configure all this redirection stuff if your not familiar with writing your own .htaccess files

    If you want to do a 301 redirect AND maintain the context in the URL this will do it:
    Code:
    Options +FollowSymLinks
    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteRule (.*) http://new_domain_to_redirect_to.com%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L]
