    If you cloak your links with tracking202, will it hide your referrer?


    What will affiliate manager see as referrer? the original page that user clicked on it or the tracking202 domain name

    thats i dont know. why dont you just set up a link as normal and instead of linking it to your cpa offer link it to
    Code:
    ht tp :// w ww. whatismyreferrer.com/  
    and that way you can see exactly how your cpanetwork sees it, that way you can always knows and never have to ask again

    i cant paste links yet just deelte the spaces

    if you set the cloaking on then the referrer will be your 202 tracking domain but as Wes himself had pointed out, the cloaking feature is not set to be 100% and sometimes it does leak referrer and it is programmed this way.

    Buy a 1$ godaddy domain and get a cheap ssl for it, the referrer will never be leaked.

    If you use tracking202, your AM will see the tracking202 link as the referrer. BUT, it does not always hide the referrer and sometimes it is leaked.

    If you are looking for ABSOLUTE 100% guarantee that your AM won't see your referrer, you need to use the self hosted version of tracking202, prosper202, on a SSL secured domain. This will guarantee your referrer does not leak.
