    Okay, I haven't really contributed because i've tried to get my username changed so I don't get caught but hopefully this will get the correct attention and maybe i'll recieve something in return.

    If you're doing Blackhat SEO PPC and you're either blanking or faking the referrer, chances are someone else will be doing the same thing, so. This is to keep your bids low, but remember you might have to put a couple of bucks to do this, so beware.

    Use FireFox and click your competitions ad, and then during the "transfer" page, click CTRL+U, This will display the source, in the source it should say something like "Redirect=andoerz-125412-12131" Well, copy the affiliate link.

    With the affiliate link, use one of your PPC advertisers and directly put the link in the URL section when the PPC ad asks for the URL. Make sure you put these directly on search engines, such as Google, Live, Yahoo!. Run the ads for a few days, reminder, you will be advertising someone elses link spending your money, but listen.

    The other affiliate will recieve warnings from affiliate and/or the Company's Affiliate Manager. So this is a good sign for you.

    There are 2 outcomes to come out of this:

    1.) They will quietly bring down there PPC ads, in which, will allow you too advertise your ads plus have low keyword rates as that other person will be gone.

    2.) Keep on advertising his link and eventually he'll be terminated from the company affiliate program or even the affiliate program itself. In which the outcome will be the same as #1.

    I know this is a dirty tactic, hence why I posted in the black hat part of these forums. This only works when the circumstance fits correctly.

    if you find out that your competitor is using azoogleads.

    Do the same thing you mentioned above with CPV traffic. Azoogle automatically slaps a $2000 legal review fine to any affiliate who is using those traffic sources on their offers.

    Good call, I never knew that.

    From the above, sign up for Azoogle with a proxy, or VPN.

    Wow. What can you do to prevent being on the other end of that trick? Is there a way of
    spoofing the referrer that won't reveal the affiliate link with CTRL+U? Will GodCPA protect from that? Or IMProtools Php spoofing method? Thanks.

    PHP or any other server side scripting could help, and be a step back to someone that doesn't know what there doing.

    But in the end, there will be always someone that's able to get your affiliate link if they know what there doing.
