    Hi, people!
    I am new here and I am a ZERO regarding programming/computer+network tricks/etc.
    But I would like to know if there's a way to hide your IP and to enter some affiliate webpages and to pretend you are following a referral... I mean for that affiliates that are Paying-Per-Click [PPC] like FriendFinder or so.
    I am using Firefox and sometimes I am doing this trick using Tor, but I've read here that this Tor network is not so "hidding"...

    So, is there any other way - MORE SECURE! - to click yourself using a "cover up" to fool these affiliate sites?
    Or is Tor SECURE ENOUGH and you advise me to keep using it?

    Thank you in advance!
    HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

    Yes, but once again this probably wont work, and even if it does it wont work for long, it is better to put your energies into finding a legit source of traffic. They will eventually figure out what you are doing and stop paying you, too much effort for 20 or 40 bucks.

    Thanks, freqout, you are right! With such a SLOOOW Tor, I never did more than $30-$37/month...!
    On the other way, "finding a legit source of traffic" = could you suggest me something, please?
    The problem is I cannot work [office or other kinda work], I am stuck home and I'd like to exploit a little bit the DSL that I have...
