    Hey
    Me and co-worker has made this site:

    http://www.registrycleanertests.org

    The purpose of the site is to get the traffic to download one of the registry cleaners software. As you may know google adwords doesn't like these sort of pages where you lead traffic to another sales page.

    My question is if it is possible to make the affiliate link saying: "DOWNLOAD FREE SCAN" to direct download, so the traffic doesn't has to leave the site?
    and google adwords can be "happy" again? :)

    I'm sure you could make the index php, then have a form submit button, that creates a CURL operation call from your server, to visit the affiliate link, download the exe, then generate a big "DOWNLOAD" link on your page, after a second or 2 has passed. The form could be animated & say...please wait, we are loading your software & have a 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, countdown, sort of like a free download service.

    Meanwhile, you could iframe the affiliate link, on your download page. So that the affiliate cookie gets set on the visitors browser, so that when they run the exe, it finds their unique cookie.

    Just off the top of my head.

    (actual application may or may not be practical depending on sponsor)
    for instance....if the sponsor generates a unique exe based on the visitors ip, this would not work, since your server ip's are downloading the exe & making it available to the surfer....however...if you used an asp (or some other active scripting/server) page, (or something like that), you could actually have the surfer load your page & the sponsor iframe....then have your server pull the iframe unique download link, & provide it on your main page.



    Alternatively you could contact the registry cleaner software company & ask for your own unique software/exe (tagged with your aff id/cookie etc) & explain your situation based on SEO standings, and your advertising plans. It would be what they call in the adult biz, a "white-label"....they might very well call it that in mainstream as well.

    Be sure to tell them you expect to do big volume, otherwise they might just delete that e-mail, or laugh at you :)

    You could have the curl HTTP request set an X-Forwarded-For header with the visitor's IP. The overwhelming majority of servers will transparently use the value from that header as the IP of the "visitor".

    All proxy software that I know of uses this header, including reverse proxies.

    Thanks for the answers :D
    I have actually found a http://pc-registrycleaner.net/ which is doing the download trick

    What is "CURL" and "Iframe" actually? I have been surfing around for answers, but can't find some :confused:

    You can also go back in time and use the much-deprecated frames.

    You set up your special page(s) with frame layout. Then you download the entire other site's page into a frame on your site.
