    I was almost crying when i solved my problem. I tried to use CPA-R (Brad's Plugin for Wordpress). When i installed and checked, it didn't go to redirected page. It just stayed on my post. So i thought that plugin is not working anymore.... And then i tried for standalone version. But it was really hard to fake referrer for many posts....... Finally i got the answer.

    Anyway, i will show you how i finished.

    1. Download CPA-R from Brad's blog.
    That plugin is CPA-R Version 1.2

    2. Upload to your plugins folder or upload it through your Blog.

    3. Install it

    4. go to Setting -> CPA Redirector

    5. you may see your posts and pages. and many options.
    i read that Brad recommends to use Redirection Method: Javascript/ Form Method: Post.
    And put any number for Magic Number.
    And if you are newbie like me, don't put your affiliate link on affiliate URL section. Put http://www.whatismyreferrer.com to check your faking referrer is working or not.

    And save setting.

    Before test it. YOU MUST ADD SOME CODE ON YOUR header.php

    That quote is from Brad explaination. I couldn't see that part and i was fudge up ....

    Anyway then let's test your CPA-R is working or not.

    go to Post URL where you put affiliate Url (http://whatismyrefferer.com)

    ex) http://yourblog.com/your-post-title/?mn=yourMagicNumber/

    Red color part is that you need to change to your own.

    If you get
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    What is my referrer?

    Referrer: http://yourblog.com/your-post-title
    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    then you faked your referrer. Now, you can change http://www.whatismyreferrer.com to your Affiliate Link.


    Finally i can move on next step. I haven't made any money through Affiliate. I just don't want to make any mistake on my Account.

    Hm.. i got some problem. When i check through FireFox, it shows my faked referrer. But from IE, it doesn't tell me where was my referrer. It shows - . Help me if you know why..

    Thank you Brad! and special Thanks for im n0t lurer

    I just tested my own. I don't really know the difference between Javascript Form and Javascript on Redirection Method. But when i did just Javascript, IE doesn't show my referrer. So i did Javascript Form and it shows my faked referrer.

    Javascript Form refers to having a form on a page, and accompanying javascript that forces it to submit. (Thus giving that page as the referer.)

    JUST "Javascript" most likely refers to using document.location = "..." to change location, which does not really do anything useful as far as referer is concerned.

    Do you have to have your own hosted blog to use this method?
    Can you redirect on free Wordpress blogs?

    thanks for that...

    Just been testing this with whatismyreferer.com and notice that the hostname is always the same as the IP.. Does this matter do you think ?

    Here is my test about whatismyreferer.com

    The link that fake a referer from www.badarticle.com :
    Code:
    http://referer.us/f/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.whatismyreferer.com%2F&referer=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.badarticle.com%2F
    and here is the link for no-referer:
    Code:
    http://referer.us/www.whatismyreferer.com/
    I Think it's working pretty well.

    I cannot sure I understand what you mean about hostname and IP are same. Correct if I am wrong, the hostname and IP are yours and my tool is not for fake IP, so it should and will be the same.

    Gimme more info, thanks

    what i was referering to was..

    If i visit whatismyreferer.com without the script i get the following results for IP & Hostname

    IP = 134.23.22.33
    Hostname = 5rd443c1.bt.com

    but when using the fake referer script it shows as

    IP = 134.23.22.33
    Hostname = 134.22.22.33

    I was just thinknig that the script seems to make the hostname the IP, just wondered if an affiliate manager really knew what to look for in their stats might notice this, that every hostname is the IP ??

    Just a thought..:confused:

    Also if we want to completely run the script on our own servers what scripting are you using for referer.us/f/ ??

    The hostname just reverse DNS lookup, I think the problem is on that script not mine. Check http://referer.us/http-referer-test.asp
    see if your hostname get displayed.

    The code is totally my own:

    The new two feature will release soon:

    1: use your own domain, because my site located on dedicated server with own IP address, so you can point your own domain on it and use my service with your own name. You can use this feature now and I will officially release this soon.

    2: url shorten, for url short purpose, native support hide referer or fake referer. This feature will work together with your own domain too. Will release soon

    ok thanks...

    Im a bit confused.. i used this javascript and created a file

    mydomain.com/j/f1.js

    then using your url http://referer.us/f/?url=etc.... that works fine..


    I just noticed the code here..

    Is this the code that you use for the http://referer.us/f/?url= part on your domain ??

    If so what do i save that file as on my domain ?

    or am i getting confused here and these two codes are for the same thing, and we've gotta use referer.us always as the domain...

    Sorry for being such a dumb ass, but its Friday..:D

    http://s.referer.us/j/f1.js is encrypted code, I thought nobody want they are page got checked by affiliate manager and find out the code

    http://s.referer.us/j/_f1.js is the source code, if you wanna integrate it into your own code, you should use it. Btw, people like to see source code to see if there has virus or something

    yes, as you said, it's same thing, I will write a note and make it more clear

    btw, you can use your own domain name now, if you want to:
    http://referer.us/own-referring-domain.html

    en.. if you map your own domain, then you only need change the redirect url to yours, example:

    if the original redirect url is:
    http://referer.us/redirect ... something/
    change to
    http://yourdomain.com/redirect ... something/

    thats all. Btw, if you visit your mapped domain http://youmappeddomain.com/ and use the hide or fake url tool under that domain, you can get the url with your domain straight way.

    I am busy making the site, will include more details
