    Hello, I have a big question... what's the best way to hide where my traffic is coming from but still make it high quality traffic? I'm doing an email campaign for an auction site (won't mention the name) and don't want to get in trouble for marketing via email :p

    Is the best way to cloak to some how send them through my own domain? How do I do this? I can't afford to let my affiliate know it's coming from emails. Btw this is an auction site not CPA as I generally follow CPA rules strictly.

    create index.html in your domain root and add these line on that file. Replace yourlink.com with your link

    Code:
     <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;URL='http://yourlink.com/'" />

    or you can use .htaccess file for redirect

    simple create a .htaccess file in your domain root and add this line on .htaccess

    Redirect 301 / http://yourlink.com/
