    Anyone know how to create a cookie that stays with the visitor after he comes to your site?

    So even if he goes to my competitor for the same product afterwards, my cookie will still persist over my competitors.

    Any ideas?

    I used to work as PC repair guy many many moons ago, what I used to do - a little underhanded but lucrative, onced I repaired the computer change their home page to one of my pages - very similar to google or yahoo, the google one I had it riged up to adsense and all dropped ebay and amazon cookies.

    I worked at engineer for many years on average 5 call outs per day over 7 days - when xmas came round was amazing times....

    Ohhh - them were the days...

    Surely you have heard of "Cookie Stuffing?" Because that is what it sounds like you are referring to. Now whether you realize it or not is a different story.

    Just remember this, "Ignorance of the law is no excuse."

    Now go and g00gle "Digital Point Owners Indicted"

    You also may want to take a serious look at:

    If you are going to be a cookie monster, know the game or you will possibly go down in flames.

    The term is cookie stuffing, and it usually by amazon affiliate. Well, it is a blackhat. Use it on your own risk.

    No, an ever cookie....

    A cookie that will change back to your affiliate cookie even if a competitors cookie gets placed on the users computer.

    Im not exactly sure if its even possible, but it sure would make a lot of money.

    No, I'm not talking about cookie stuffing as I'm not jamming multiple cookies in the visitors browser. Instead, I want to plant a cookie for the single product that I am promoting and the only difference between a normal cookie and this one is, mine persists over any others.

    You know most people pay the last one to refer. Well, I want to be paid coz I was the first one to refer by keeping my cookie persistent.

    Any suggestions?

    We may be dealing with a case of semantics here because what you are describing is definitely a form cooking stuffing.

    You see... it doesn't matter what anyone calls it. It doesn't matter if you are stuffing "1" cookie, "5" cookies or "100" cookies, the process and principle is still the same. If eye were you, if you don't have PrePaid legal or an attorney on retainer, I make one of those free consultation calls to an attorney versed in these matters to confirm or deny if you are attempting to tread on very thin ice.

    Here is the issue, if you are crossing the line, you need to know that the rule of law is, "Ignorance of the law is no excuse." Translating to mean, just because YOU thought is wasn't cookie stuffing is of no consequence.

    I think the idea is that you never have the right to install something persistent on another computer without his/her knowledge. If you told a person that by visiting your website and viewing your content it would give you the right to install "X" persistent cookie on his browser and you made it clear that the cookie would last "X" months, days, hours, AND you give the opportunity to leave without having the cookie placed, then you're good. As far as getting a script that will result in a cookie like that .....odesk?
