    Hey guys,

    I started to encypt my aff id recently. I've never done it before, but I'm posting class ads for biz ops, and I know there is heavy competition....

    I fear being hijacked hence I thought it wise to completely encrypt my aff id, or using short url that also hide the aff id in the page source code...I just want to make sure it's not visible anywhere...

    now maybe since I don't have experience except in adult casuals, I'm expecting more hits, and at least a sale, but not one sale yet...!

    so I'm really surprised....could the encryption or url redirects be blocking stats?
    (I am getting hits, it's just the numbers seem really low)

    As long as they're getting to the affiliate site with the affiliate ID intact it should be fine...
