    I'm still new to the PPC game, but it is to my understanding that you have to check with the advertisers if they allow direct linking to their offers, and I think this I frowned upon by Google (don't quote me), if I was you I'd get a landing page setup (using the silo method-a small site with relevant content) and link the offer to the landing page (within the silo site). This way google gives a good quality score to the ad because it is relevant content.

    Also DON'T ad your voucher to the banned adsense account, as google links it. Just get a VPS or proxy, run CCCleaner every time, and run a new account with the 25 pound voucher.

    Just my 2 cents, hope it helps, and please correct me if 'm wrong anyone, because I found this also to be the biggest learning curve for PPC

    You will need to set up a basic site with good on-page SEO on your own domain and use a PHP script to show this site to Google when it crawls your page after you submit it to AdWords. The on-page SEO will help improve the quality score. Make sure you also include privacy policy, terms of service, and contact pages.

    For all other visitors, you should create a full-page frame (use frameset, not iframe) to show the offer through your tracking link.

    This worked very well for me until the advertiser dropped me because I was using their brand name in my domain. So either get a domain without the brand name (unless approved by the advertiser) or buy two domains, one with the brand and one without, and use the brand name URL as your AdWords URL (improves visits and conversions due to name recognition) but cloak your refer by funneling the frame traffic through your non-brand-name domain.

    No, but if you want to take a chance just buy a cheap domain and forward it...I did that and still got a 9/10 quality score that was a while ago though.

    So how would you do it?

    Any tips on how to set up a PHP script and the frameset? Also, can you give any advice on cloaking and how to implement it?

    Thanks

    I'm pretty skeptical with 7search...I've been reading some not-so-good things about the quality of their traffic, but I'm tempted to give them a try since the traffic is so cheap...

    Hi, artizhay !

    Thanks for info, could you please tell where can I get the script that makes such redirect , please?

    And is there any issues with the Cloaking as Google says - "Cloaking refers to an attempt to boost search result rankings by serving different content to Googlebot than to regular users".

    Wouldn't they ban am account if find out that we are cloaking?

    Regards.

    Yes, this would be regarded as cloaking and against TOS.
