    Okay, I have a typo domain for a product that has an affiliate program with CJ. I was just wondering if i can redirect from the typo domain directly to the sales page of Cj and still get commission and everyone be fine with that?

    Check your advertisers terms of use. Usually they do not allow misspellings of domains but if you can forward it through a redirect or blank the referrer they wont know

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    You'll need to read the TOS of the actual advertiser as many will not allow that.

    All it states that I can find is that you cannot use the brand name which it has in quotations to promote the product, thus shouldn't it be acceptable then?

    Probably not but here is what I do now with CJ because I messed up a few years ago and lost 1400.00 in commission with an advertiser.

    I email the affiliate manager and explain what I want to do and how I want to do it if it is something that may be a little edgy... more often than not they appreciate the email and work with me.

    Alright, thanks man!

    Additionally, I could also do this through a similar website that I am going to promote that wouldn't violate any tos and be perfectly fine if i am correct?

    In actual fact most advertisers TOS only cover direct linking from CPC and not from organic or type in traffic. As long as the domain isn't a pretected keyword term of that advertiser you should in theory be fine.

    You could just go ahead and do it, if you get paid after the first sale then you'll know everything is fine.

    i have a question, if you have an affiliate site where you promote products from hundreds of sites...lets say, you kinda gotta have clickbank or comission junction...when you sign up with either one of them, arent you automatically approved for every site they list?
