    Hello,

    I need help with meta refresh because I am not good at coding.

    This is the code for meta refresh:

    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2; url= http://your-affiliate-link.com/">


    So what does content="2 mean?

    Some people are mentioning in their website to use above one, some person displayed this code:

    <META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh"
    content="10; URL=http://the URL of the second page">

    where he mentioned content=10

    This thing is varied in different blogs, I am really confused. Please help me.

    One more thing.

    What does blank referrer mean?
    If we use meta refresh, can the merchant or the aff mar company still find out our keywords?

    Thanks. Help is appreciated.

    content="2" means that the page will wait for 2 seconds before refreshing. While content="10" means that the page will wait for 10 seconds before refreshing. If you don't want it to wait before refreshing just set content="0" and it will refresh immediately.

    Blank referer means that the URL of the previous website your visitor is on is deleted. If the aff mar company don't know where your traffic is coming from they won't know what keyword you are using won't they.

    And just in case you don't know how to blank the referer you can try to use a double meta refresh.

    I use the site called Cloakedlink.Com. You can get a double meta-refresh link without jumping through all of those php hoops and creating Page1 and Page2, etc, etc.. Nice and Simple. :)

    As long you can give a good explanation to them as to why your all your referer's are blank you should be golden.

    Or you could include some traffic from other sites or traffic sources. At least they will have something to look at.

    One common reason you can give them is that you simply don't want to reveal your traffic sources.

    I can finally try to help somebody :D
    I've been working myself on double meta refreshes for my affiliate links, and here are my notes:

    on server, make a folder called see, goto, whatever
    copy and paste #1 code into notepadfile.
    rewrite this code, and point it to my 2nd php file
    save it in a notepad file with the name of the product.php (myproduct.php)
    upload it to (example) http://**********.com/see

    #1 code

    <?php

    {

    echo "<meta http-equiv="refresh"

    content="0;url=http://********.com/see/myproduct2.php">";

    }

    ?>




    2nd php file:
    change this link in code to the actual product affiliate link
    save it in a notepad file with the name of the myproduct2.php
    upload it to (example) http://*************.com/see

    #2code

    <?php

    $referer = $_SERVER['HTTP_REFERER'];

    if($referer == "")

    {

    echo "<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=http://www.afflink.com">";

    }

    ?>


    when putting in your affiliate links on webpage, refer to #1code
    example: <a href="http://www.*******/see/myproduct.php">

    make sure your server treats the files as php. mine didn't, it named
    them myproduct.php.txt.....but I got around it by renaming them
    when they're on the server, taking off the .txt. my server then
    treated them like a php file, and changed them.

    I've got a shitload of affiliate links, but I just finished uploading 24 double files (the myproduct.php, and myproduct2.php) to my server; got about 50 more to go. I know it's the slow way to do it, but it really helps me in trying to understand a bit of coding, and I have complete control of the redirects. Hope this helps ya!

    Thanks drkenneth! I've seen your posts and actually copied and pasted them into a 'how-to' file of mine. But I must be pretty simple-minded, as I just couldn't get the one with the tracker or the one where you could put multiple different links on. I's a hopin' that once I get better at this, I'll graduate into your codes! ;)
