    I have a dumb newbie question I been trying to figure out and I keep getting confused please help

    What I don't understand is how can someone steal your commission off of your clickbank affiliate link I was told after your link shows they can go behind you and steal the commission how I'm so confused

    I want to make my affiliate link invisible where it only show the domain (not the affiliate link) now before you say that's so easy with places like tinyurl or hidemyass and other places it hides it when they first click on the link but what about after they have clicked on the link you can still see its a affiliate link when they get to the sales page

    I want it where they never know that it is a affiliate link the whole time please help sorry for the newbie question :D

    if you want to show no affiliate link the whole time, the way to do it is to iframe the page you are promoting.

    A iframe is an HTML element which makes it possible to embed an HTML document inside another HTML document.

    The size of the IFrame can be specified in the surrounding HTML page, so that the surrounding page can already be presented in the browser while the IFrame is still being loaded. The IFrame behaves much like an inline image and the user can scroll it out of view. On the other hand, the IFrame can contain its own scroll bar, independent of the surrounding page's scroll bar.

    While regular frames are typically used to logically subdivide the content of one website, IFrames are more commonly used to insert content (for instance an advertisement) from another website into the current page.

    here is an example of an iframe
    Code:
    <html>
      <head>
            <title>Example</title>
      </head>
      <body>
            The material below comes from the website http://example.com
            <iframe src="http://example.com" height="200">
                Alternative text for browsers that do not understand IFrames.
            </iframe>
       </body>
    </html>

    When they get to the sales page most products create a cookie and then store it on the PC, if they change the url, save it and then delete their cookies then they will be able to get their discount.

    Theres not really much you can do to stop this, though being honest, im not sure if Clickbank will allow you to pass your affiliate ID as a a POST parameter, as this way it show in the address bar.

    you know if you found it helpful you should just hit thanks below davejug and my posts above, instead of just making a post saying thanks. But anyway, your welcome.
