    Hi

    Is it possible to cloak an affiliate link on your server using the php redirect code and still set up tracking?

    Besides using tracking 202, is there any other free tool to track conversion for CPA offers?

    This is the code am using for my re-direction

    <?php
    header("Location: http://mywebsite.com");
    ?>

    Thanks

    Yes. This is very simple. It makes more sense to track people before you redirect them. Drop them to a tracking page which redirects them to a referrer hiding script. This could also be accomplished with a simple bit.ly/hiderefer combo link to your affiliate for free.

    How should I set up the combo? It is as simple as setting up an account with them, then copy and paste the link I want to track?

    there are services like hiderefer.com, make a link to your affiliate with them first. then make a bit.ly link to the hide refer url they give you.

    Ok, so 1st hide the referal or source with hiderefer.com then track with bit.ly
    is that correct?
    The referal is hidden before it gets to bit.ly.
    out of curiousity what will the bit.ly look like when it is done? will the link be like what we have with tiny url or will it be like mywebsite.com/keyword?
