    just wanted to know if this was possible I see some people directing to a landing page first and then others straight to a cpa affiliate link page, are these people doing redirects or what? I'm confused...:confused:

    You can't direct link from EZA to an affiliate offer.

    You have to use a domain and then do a redirect.

    Have you meant redirecting from a domain itself, like from qqq.com which is not hosted to landing page URL...

    I'm not quite sure what you mean.

    A redirect means you can link to anywhere you want it to i.e. qqq.com>>rrr.com

    If the redirect isnt enough to get you approved, just link to a 'normal' landing page in your article - once the article goes live, turn your 'normal' page into a 'redirect' to the CPA offer...

    I was wondering that as well. I assume they would if someone complained but as a standard practice once you article goes live are you in the clear to redirect?

    I have never had a problem with them checking a URL, but if you're worried, just do what "darkmath" said.

    as a rule you should always have a domain just for redirecting as you can do so much more with that (in my humble opinion)

    You could use a rotator to rotate offers to see what one converts best

    you could also cookie stuff and you could even do something sexy like redirect to the offer and use traffic re generator or something like that (exitsplash) to pop up under/after the user has been moved onto the cpa offer page

    make a point of having your landing pages like an aggregator and remember to track the keywords/domains/articles they came from so you can test and tweak different ways to monetize the traffic

    I've never had an article get weeded out months/years down the road...But not to say that they will never check...

    There are a TON of articles that enter the site per day...The odds of your article from 7-9 months ago being re-reviewed are slim IMO

    if you are trying to build up the EZA account then i wouldn't do a redirect. if it is just a throwaway account and it wont hurt you if it gets banned then go for it.
