    Hi

    Lets say if I have a website called mydomain.com and we will be putting affiliate links and banners on it. Is it possible to change the links of banners to anothersite.com which I own too? I want to hide which affiliate I'm using. Is that possible?

    Thank You

    If you're using a linux based server, you could use an .htaccess redirect.
    Just find the .htaccess file in your root directory, download it, edit it and upload it.
    You'll want to add the following line in the file. (replace the red parts)

    Redirect 301 /yourpage.html http://www.affiliatelink.com

    You can use a PHP redirect file then.

    Good thing is that branding is still under your first site...

    Another cloaking option (if you are using WordPress) is MaxBlogPress' Ninja Affiliate plugin.

    The depths of that plugin are amazing.

    why not do a simple php redirect?

    have the link point to w w w . yoursite . c0m/redirect.php

    and use this code on redirect.php

    PHP:
    <?php
    header
    'Location:  h t t p : / / w w w . affilatewebsite . c0m/?aff=234124' ) ;
    ?>

    this is assuming that you just don't want users taking your affiliate link out of the address...

    I'll have a lot of banners and links, would openx also work for what I'm trying to do?
