    Hey I'm new to bhw and was reading up on cookie stuffing. From what I've learned thus far. Embed and image on a forum,website, that get's redirected by my .htaccess file on my server, to an php page, then forwarded off to an affiliate link.

    I've also read that allot of people where having trouble hiding their http referer. Which shows up as coming from the forum, place you stuffed and not from your domain.

    I dugg around and think I've come up with a solution using curl. Of course some of the more experienced php developers will know, If this is indeed the way to effectively hide and http_referer.

    I'm also working on a script to manage the amount of impressions, so they don't all get forwarded to an affiliate. However, I'm not so good when it comes to math and I'm stumped at figuring out how to implement a Click Thru Ratio Routine.

    I think there are already scripts that stuff users on a random basis, to keep your CTR low. Regarding the http ref, i'm pretty sure someone already has a solution for this, but it's just not out there because whoever knows how to do it, is making a killing from CS with it :)

    I think people have tried that before, and if I remember correctly it only ends up stuffing your server and not your target. Also, discussing cookie stuffing here is prohibited.
