    If you use a php file on your website, you can use something like:

    So they hit your site, ie sitename/link1.php and its sends them to the affiliate.

    I like using Redirect in the .htaccess file
    just add

    Redirect /dogtraining h t t p your-affiliate-url

    then send people to h t t p your-affiliate-url/dogtraining

    it looks like its part of your site and people won't feel like they are being
    sent off to an external site


    sorry for the creative url posting.. I can't post real URLS yet
