    This will explain how to use blogger as a redirect service with any number of affiliates. Have you ever wondered how to post an affiliate link like this hxxp://USERID.PUBLISHER.hop.clickbank.net/ in digg and go straight to the landing page, or have you ever had a publisher site go down after you launched a massive campaign?

    Well this will show you how to bypass Digg and change your affiliate links in all of your bookmarking sites anytime you want. There are plenty of url redirection services like *********** but digg doesn't except these links, and also you cant access tinyurl to change a link latter if a publishers site goes down.

    You could use free hosting site and use php to do a url redirect, but if you don't know anything about scripting, then this will show you the easy way.

    First of all the two links below will show you this trick in action.

    This link will redirect to some fat burner page.
    http://bam-redirect.blogspot.com/2008/12/burn-fat.html

    You noticed the image saying " Loading " we will talk about that latter on.

    The second link is from the same blog just in a different post. This is a good thing so that you wouldn't have to create a blog for each redirect.

    2nd link is to a registry repair site.
    http://bam-redirect.blogspot.com/2008/12/registry-repair.html


    Now understand that this redirect is the easiest way to get around bookmarking sites and go to an affiliates landing page. Also you won't have a problem if a publishers site goes down later on, cause all you have to do is edit your post and direct your traffic to another site in the same niche.

    Steps to perform this redirect.

    1. Create a simple blog and enter layout and then fonts and colors. Keep the background and all other colors completely white, then save your settings.

    2. Click layout again and choose edit html, now right above the first <head>
    enter this code below. This will remove the blue navbar from the top of the page.

    Code:
    <style type='text/css'>
    #navbar-iframe {
    height: 0px;
    }
    </style>
    Now save template and click settings.

    3. In the settings you will see formatting, click on that. At the top you will see show post and the number 7 by it. Change the 7 to a 1 , then scroll down and save settings.

    4. Click on posting and name the post whatever you want, just name it something that can identify the link to you. Now in your post put this code below.

    Code:
    <META http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL=Your Link Goes Here">
    
    
    Replace the " Your Link Goes Here " with the url you want the page to go to.
    Now click publish post, your post wont go right through so click the little box at the top and hit publish post again.

    Do step 4 over and over again til you have all the url's you want redirected.
    To access your links click on posting and then edit post and it will show you all your redirected links.

    I added one more thing to my redirection and its the image of the " Loading "
    you can do this to let visitors know the page is taking a second to load so they don't leave. It's easy to do, just go back to layout edit html. and right above the first <head> add in your image.

    That's it guys have fun bypassing Digg! :)

    One other very valuable little plus to using that particular type of image: it catches people's eye and will keep them from seeing all the gobbledygook going on in the browser bar and the status bar.

    A little sleight of hand action.

    Nicely done.

    One more step you can do is to remove all your widgets, like the blog archive and anything else that will slow the page down. The more links you add to your blog the longer it will take for the page to load.

    I just added a site meter to my blog and it's great for tracking which campaigns & articles are working the best.

    Update:

    Well I just had my blogger redirect flagged as spam. Blogger themselves locked me out with the 20 day notice, stating that I have 20 days to request a full review of my blog.

    I think I was flagged by some one on digg, ok so what you flagged me, but you can't stop me!

    Now I've been running my blog like this for about a month and a half, I have over 100 redirected post within my blog. So there was no way I was going to cut my losses and except this. First of all it took me about 2 to 5 minutes to get my blog unlocked and back to running redirects again.

    If you need help on saving a blog that has been reported as spam, you can go to the thread I wrote a while back that shows you step by step how to.

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blogging/42179-how-save-your-blogs-when-reported-spam.html

    I'm also taking extra steps to keep my blog from been flagged as spam again. Most of the times your blog hasn't been review by a person, instead it's a bot looking for certain characteristics of what they consider to be spam.

    So what I'm doing now is adding in the noindex,nofollow meta tag, this should prevent certain bots from crawling my entire site. Second after I have posted all my redirects I need I will add some real content to the homepage of my blog (The last post you publish is the homepage).

    I have only tested this trick with blogger for a month and I can't take responsibility If blogger flags your redirects as spam. This is black hat, so nothing is promised when using black hat tricks to achieve success. The good news is if you have a blog that has been flagged as spam, you can save it by following the link posted above.

    I'll let you guys know how the new meta tags work out.

    I'm also facing the same problem. I created the blog a few days ago. Never use it...never put it in digg or anything that is similar...just tried out the redirect concept. And today I received an email from blogger stated that my blog is potential a spam and I need t o request for a review.

    I'm thinking its the bots are flagging them , I'm mixing the colors now and adding in more real content. I wont be using this no more in the future but for now I'm trying to keep this blog running, cause I have already done so much with it.

    I wonder if it's the timer on the meta refresh, i'll try to raise that up to a 3 or 5 instead of 0.
