    The link I'm supplying the customer is directing them to another site which is run by the same company but is not the right landing page. All my clients are getting CC errors (I don't want to get too specific) I lost out on some good leads today. I'm just wondering what's up if anyone has any experience with this problem.

    Well is the page your leads are being sent to have your Referral ID? Because that can determine if your being hijacked, or if its just a glitch somewhere.

    Does this make sense to anyone. It doesn't really make too much sense to me but I've lost some very high dollar leads and I want to know what the hell is up. If anyone who is more experience can PM me I can better explain the interesting situation that's happening.

    I'm trying to figure this out. I don't think it's the shortner. I see a few clicks but not what it should be. It also seems like I'm getting leads on my affiliate page but something is up. What are signs that I'm getting Hijacked and how can I prevent it? Going to search now. Thanks guys.

    Your links are getting redirected most likely because the network does not accept traffic from certain countries. For example: if you are in the US and are getting hits from Korea, then your traffic will be redirected to other offers.

    It happens all of the time. You should check to see what traffic is acceptible from your network and the offer you're promoting.

    No it's not traffic from other countries. I know when this happens. This isn't the case but thank you.

    It's going to a similar landing page for a different offer the advertising company offers not a different CPA offer. I think maybe they are pissed off at me. I'm not sure at this point.

    I think maybe the advertiser has their own offer rotation and that's what you're looking at. Really dumb move by the advert as if you're not getting the commission for the conversions then the advert is at fault here.

    Maybe it's a small offer and they aren't banking on anyone finding out about the offer rotation? I mean how many affiliates actually look into the landing page once the campaign is setup and ready to go?

    I deal with something similar when using shorturl redirection services. I beat most of them by creating shorturls of a blog with cpa redirector but still some of these services just change the redirect to their own affiliate offers completely and totally different websites. Assholes man, but I'd do the same.

    Lol check this out I think ForeverNever is right. I clicked on the same link that took me to the rotation before and it took me back to the original offer. Slick bastards big money offer. I know I lost $120 today. Suckaz, guess you have to love them. I'm gonna get on their asses on Monday.
