    I have an autoblog with a topic that is fitting well to a clickbank product that I'm therefor advertising on it.
    Recently, I've been reading a lot about advertising on craislist an I plan to give it a shot (with the same product that I'm advertising on the blog).
    Linking directly to that clickbank product in craigslist (respectively to a domain that is forwarding to it) might not be a good idea (or am I wrong?). So I was thinking about linking to my blog and adding a few lines of php code that are something like: (pseudocode)
    if $_SERVER['referer'] contains 'craislist' then echo 'meta refresh redirect'
    else do nothing and show blog
    This way, only visitors coming from a link that I've posted on craislist will be redirected directly to the clickbank product and anyone else, for example someone at clickbank who is checking where the traffic I am sending is coming from, will just see my blog.

    So, would that work or shouldn't I bother linking to a redirct only domain at all?
