    Hi guys , I'm using an affiliate program and posting the affiliate link in youtube comments. I don't want them to see that their traffic is from youtube incase they don't see it as quality (or they see my easy method as working and then ban be to do it themselves - has that ever even happened? :p) .

    Is there a method someone suggests? I think it's called spoofing? but can it be done on youtube comments? thanks guys

    Just so that you know, most affiliate programs are no big fans of cloaking :p

    I might be wrong, but passing it through a 301 domain should do it, basically making it look like the traffic is coming from the domain, rather than actual source.

    Yeah, but if the advertiser will manually check your "legit" domain, they will be instantly redirected to their network/offer. Isn't that too fishy?

    You are absolutely right, but it still protects your traffic source and you could tell them anything,

    If asked why you don't direct link to offer, say it's to prevent the exposure of your aff link, as people avoid them etc

    301 leaks a referer. The easiest way to cloak is to use double meta-refresh redirect. Google it, there are a lot of manuals out there.
