    just wondering, will affiliate companies know if you are on the same pc, if you delete your cookies and change ip, and just sign up for the offer again? or is there someway for them to track your hardware?

    thanks

    They do not check your hardware :)

    But you have two possibilities then:

    1. Use proxies
    2. Reboot PC or modem if you have dynamic IP.

    First one does not work because many affiliates have a list of proxies, and they know you came from proxies mostly (not always though).

    Second one - depends. If your new IP will be similar to your other one (in most cases it happens), then that will look suspicious. So you should not abuse that.
    If your IP changes completely, then I guess it is safer, though I am no expert in the field.

    Hope that helps

    advice: use home pc for one account

    goto a public library for the second one and never log into it agian

    just get the links up while you are at the library, then wait for the checks.... yea i know it wil suck not knowing your earnings but every check will be like xmas cards from your grandma

    thanks for taking time to respond. no, im not going to use proxies, and when my ip changes it changes pretty much completely...

    i saw in another thread, where some guy said ebay still knows who he is even after changing his ip / cookie etc?... i just want to make 100% possible its no other way for them to track you besides those 2 methods...

    what about when a cookie is planted on your pc, it has your windows user name on the cookie... could this be trackable (if anyone knows)...

    thanks

    hey, can you be a little more specific on what you mean by one account, and another account?? im just confused i guess on what accounts you are referring to... one affiliate account?

    i guess my question would be, is it possible to just sit on your computer at home, change ips / delete cookies, and sign up for your own offers?

    it's possible but not really a great idea.

    Some companies are starting to implement flash cookies. In my flash cookies, egay and feepay are often among them. I don't know at what level they are at with them but they will be commonplace very shortly.

    Check out this article:

    Use this tool to remove and review who is setting them:

    Check your system. You would be shocked at how many you have.
