Say you are an affiliate with a good company okay, would'nt it be better if you forward your site to your affiliate link?

I get about 500 uniques aday on my adult site yet still, I rarely earn a dime because very few people click on the links.

So if I forward my website to my affiliate link, I would be sending 500 users to my aff, and that will probably make me a sale every day or 2.

Can this be done? I mean is it tollerated by affiliate programs? or is it considered as spamming or so?

Hi.

My suggestion is to use Double Meta Refresher for your redirect to aff link. It works same as website redirection, the advantage of using this is that your referrer will be blank.

Hope this will help you.

I agree with you, sometimes when you get a visitor to your site, within 5 seconds they decide whether to look around or get out of there. I can see why you may be having some problems getting people to click on the links. If it is possible, I would just redirect them to the affiliate page. Do some testing. If you are getting more conversions by redirecting, go from there.

Thats the whole point, I really suck at web design, and i don't like doing it. I'm good at getting traffic though. Thats why it'll probably be better if i redirect the users to my affiliate link.

What i would like to know is if redirecting is allowed by comapnies like aff, fling, cecash, elitedollars and whatever...

I have not done any adult traffic. But this is very interesting question for me as well.

I have done so far that I always have an landing page that I have redirected my traffic to from a cloaked site.

And it would make life so much easier to just redirect to the affiliate directly and I am sure the conversion rate would higher up with at least 20% if not more.

But question is, would the affiliate networks ban our accounts if we do this?

I mean, I don't want my amazon nor my ebay account to be banned so this is really important, I don't care a bit if they see where the traffic comes from and what keywords, what I care about is if they will ban my income or not.

We are 2 people living on this full time so its really important.
