    I have been playing with this idea for a while now but I need to iron out a few problems.

    I want to send typo traffic trough an affiliate link of the site that was misspeled.

    My problem is how to cover my tracks.

    Is faking the refferer enough???

    Thanks in advance!

    If you get caught the aff. program will likely terminate your aff. account and possibly sue you for trademark infringement...

    It's best to route the typo traffic through another domain and then blank the referrer.

    Just make sure you really cover your tracks. Also you might want to fake the refferer, just uae a bunch of social media sites (FB, G+, etc)

    Also maybe a cloak on your site that lets through only traffic with reffer you target as your traffic source.

    You also have to watch out for trademark infringement if it's a popular site.

    Setup 2 p202s and run traffic through a couple of domains. You can even throw in CPA redirector if it makes you feel better.

    This trick is as old as the Internet and it always ends the same way:

    The site you send the traffic to will file a UDRP complaint and take the domain away from you.

    Thanks for all the great responses.

    Here is what I am goiing to do:

    I will create a legit looking website on an aged domain with private whois as fake referer. Only traffic that comes from the typo domain wil be redirected to the affiliate link.

    If an employee of the websop misspels the domain it will look like the company owns the domain.

    I will post the results here.


    Cheers

    That's an okay idea, but for an extra layer of security I would grab their IP and dump it into a SQL table before the redirect. Then only send the fake referrer THE FIRST TIME that IP touches your site. This way if the web shop, or some nosy do-Gooder gets suspicious and visits your site again and again, you can send them straight over with no affiliate link and better hide your identity. How often does someone hit the same typo more than once? Return visits are probably up to no good.
