    For those of you using cpa redirector, I have a query.

    Can merchants see the anchor text of the incoming links in their stats?

    what I mean is this:

    my blackhat site will redirect automatically to the merchant site and show my WH site as the refferer. So far, so good

    BUT surely using the above, the anchor text will be blank. By anchor text, I mean similar to your google analytuics stats where it shows you what keyword people clicked on to get to your site.

    So if the above is true, isn't there a mismatch between your blank anchor texts and what they should be according to yourWH site

    Am I thinking too much? lol

    No, they won't. The reason Google Analytics shows is because they arrived via a search engine. If they arrived by pasting in a URL, or clicking a link in an email browser, it wouldn't show a referral keyword. The only way your CPA network would see a referring keyword is if you passed the variable to them, and why on earth would you do that?

    Ok so let me get this str8: imagine my fake WH page looks like this:


    to get a free iphone, click here

    Now, if a real person were to click on "click here" , will the cpa network/merchant see the word "click here" in any of their stats?

    I had to edit this, BHW won't let me post URLs just yet.

    A standard link clicked from a search engine would show up as this, in the raw log file:

    63.203.109.38 - - [02/Sep/2003:09:51:09 -0700] "GET /custer HTTP/1.1"
    301 248 "search.msn.com/results.asp?RS=CHECKED&FORM=MSNH&
    v=1&q=%22little+big+Horn%22" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)"

    Whereas, if a person clicked on your 'click here' link, from your own site, the raw log file would show something like this:

    99.224.232.137 - - [01/Feb/2009:21:12:25 -0800] "GET /Faq.html HTTP/1.1" 200 9642 "grpowwow.com/Main.html" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; Media Center PC 5.0; .NET CLR 3.0.04506)"

    So, the answer to your question is, no, the cpa network would not see your anchor text from a standard html query. CPA Director would have to pass that query onto them as part of the php variable, and it doesnt do that. The cpa network would only see something like this:

    99.224.232.137 - - [01/Feb/2009:21:12:25 -0800] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200 9642 "iphonepagemerchant.com" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; Media Center PC 5.0; .NET CLR 3.0.04506)"
