    nevermind i found it ;)

    sorry guys! I just checked back on this thread, i never noticed i deleted the entire post!
    sorry, sorry!

    Anyways, here is the specific code that he was using:

    Code:
    <script language="javascript">
                    _links = document.getElementsByTagName("a");
                    for(i=0;i<_links.length;i++) {
                        if(_links[i].name) {
                            docloak = function() {
                              _cloak = this.href;
                              this.href = this.name;
                              this.innerHTML = _cloak;
                             };        
                             _links[i].oncontextmenu = docloak;                 
                            _links[i].onclick = function() {
                             docloak();
                             if(!/thickbox/.test(this.className)) {
                              window.location = this.name;
                             } 
                             return false;
                             };                         
                             _tmp = _links[i].href;
                            _links[i].href = _links[i].name;
                            _links[i].name = _tmp;
                        }
                    }
                    </script>
    


    Here is the thread with more information: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/cloaking-content-generators/14050-masking-status-bar.html

    Everything is there, you just put the code BEFORE*** the closing body tag. IMO, this is a fantastic way of completely hiding your links from suspiscious visitors like myself!

    *I removed the original site's url where I found this, because I think its bad habit to out other people's pages*

    Enjoy it, use it, but don't abuse it or we will all lose it! :)

    This might help you all. It hides the links when you hover over the affiliate link.

    Code:
    <a onclick="parent.location.href='YOUR AFFILIATE LINK';
     return event.returnValue=false" href=PUT WANT YOU WANT IT TO BE HERE >
    			</a>

    Whenever I am looking at a landing page, or interested in buying a product from a review, I always hover my mouse over a link, to see if it is a redirect link or direct link. Thus I think that atleast some of my potential leads would do the same, and I don't want them to be turned off by seeing my affiliate link when they hover, or even my own redirect link like "http://mysite.com/clickbank_name.php". I would rather they see "http://productpage.com", because then they assume I am linking them to the landing page without an affiliate link. I assume they then have much more trust in me that I am not trying to sell them anything, and just providing a helpful link. They then click, and it really goes to "http://mysite.com/clickbank_name.php", redirecting to my affiliate link, redirecting to the landing page. In the end the user still lands on "http://productpage.com", and in their eyes they went straight there.

    Sure, not many people do that, but its fair enough to assume that some do. And if you do this code, you can guarantee yourself that the people who do inspect your link in their status bar will be much more likely to click it, and thus you will get more sales in the long run!

    Hope that made some sense, its kind of a jumbled paragraph xD
