    Hello to all BHW members,
    Firstly, i would like to apologies if this questions is already answered. I am a newbie in IM, so don't be too harsh on me :)

    I would like to promote a product from clickbank as an affiliate.
    What will happen if an user opens my affiliate link, decides to do some research on google before purchasing and he/she closes the tab and just re-types the url or navigates to the website through google. Will i get the sale? I am not sure if any cookies are stored.

    PS: Please excuse my poor English :)

    Thank you for your response, guys.
    Is it a good idea to register a domain for example productnameblabla.com which will redirect to the clickbank aff link? I can spoof the referer that way, so clickbank doesn't know where the traffic is comming from. I will execute my own facebook strategy(i've been working on it for several months), but i have read that clickbank doesn't like traffic from social networks.

    Keyword domains are opening the big door of organic traffic, so i recommend URL /product as affiliated link, you can also drive traffic to URL/product using your Facebook strategy

    I'm curious about this too - is there any kind of penalty or risk from just masking your affiliate link in a URL? If there's no risk, how many of you actually do this rather than build a niche related site?

    Of course you can. Are you talking about using that masked link in PPC advertising? That junk doesn't work with Facebook, FYI.
