    I have been reading through the TOS of a CPA comapny I signed up for and plan on using some black hat tactics on. I'm doing this so when I get caught (yes, I plan on it) I can have an excuse prepared. So far, the only thing I can see that i do is the fact that my website links to a page in its server, and that page redirects to the aff website.

    What is a fake redirect, and is that what I am doing?

    Thank you all for your information! This really is an amazing forum.

    I have no idea what you said, but the first part you just repeated what I asked.

    Yeah I guess you can call it a fake redirect, I'm not sure of the official name of it. Are you clearing the http referer before you redirect it to the affiliate site? That's what's called a double meta refresh.

    Another excuse you can have is that you are blanking/clearing the traffic sources to your affiliates b/c you've had experiences where people have stolen your landing pages/strategies.

    Just push your traffic through ssl first. They'll land where you want without a referrer. Your 'excuse' is, that's how it works. I can't quote the RFC off the top of my head but the spec calls for it.
