    Hi, yesterday I received an e-mail (I attach image) and I am sure it's a guy making an email capaign for a cpa company, but as I am newbie, I would like if someone could explain me the exact steps this guy is using.

    As I see it, he sends an e-mail with an offer (in this case, freebies). But all the links in the mail go to a co.cc he created (what a cheap bastard!) :p

    If you go to that url (gratismola .co.cc) you'll see that all links there go to another website, I guess the one that's paying for the form to be filled).

    So, my dumb newbie questions are:

    - Why does he send first to a co.cc instead of directly to the offer?
    - Is the co.cc a redirect to the real adress, or is it a website that mimics the original? I mean, where in that form located? Because I see in adress bar the co.cc and get confused!
    - How would the cpa track that the person that fills the offer is being sent from the affiliate that created the co.cc?
    - Is this method good?
    - The cool image was given to the affiliate by the cpa company, I guess?

    Sorry, I know some of these are very basic questions, but I just want to check if I get this simple method of promoting something via e-mail right.

    Thanks!

    Do u know this guy? if not then he is spamming emails.
    Thats the reason he's using a redirect because he don't want someone to report his id to the advertiser.

    Ofc I don't know him, I just received an e-mail and because I want to send mails I harvest with offers from CPA's, I want someone to explain me if this method is good, and how it works. For instance, what's 'blanking a referrer', and how's it done?

    Dear Diegan, welcome to online business. it's a normally condition if you know all of about internet marketing. Maybe u register something including write your email. yeah..it's a affiliate link (You see in address bar the co.cc). If you don't like these email. you just "click" spam button. simply

    - Because his CPA doesn't allow SPAM probably
    - It's a simple html frame, really lame but I guess if it works for him... look at the page source and read up on html frames.
    - because he sets a cookie when you load the page - look in your cookies you will see MuestrasGratis
    - It's fairly basic, personally I wouldn't risk doing it this way
    - Yep

    Hope this helps...
