    If I use a redirect for an affiliate link it still shows the traffic source. Is there a way to redirect so it doesnt show the traffic source.
    This is not for the buyer ,but for the program. I would like to hide where my traffic is coming from. I thought I read it somewhere but my brain is not working properly right now lol.
    Thanks

    Not really what I'm talking about but thanks for the response.
    Lets say I had a link on a blog but didnt want the company I am promoting to know I used that blog for traffic. Can I hide this through redirect without making someone click on a landing page?

    Sure, You could do it with a meta refresh tag on a landing page that then sends them to the final destination, they will only see the traffic came from that landing page.

    You could do the same thing with phps header location if you wanted.

    so it works like this

    your traffic lands on domain1.tld/something.php

    something.php could have this inside
    PHP:
    <?
    header("Location: domain2.tld/?aff=123");
    ?>
    domain2.tld only sees that the traffic came from domain1.tld not the original source.

    Does redirecting through a php file work? That's what I'm doing. I send it through tinyurl first from the landing page, then redirect it at another site through a php file.
