    Just wondering, if I have a site that is registered with a CPA network, and I have some other sites that are not registered (because they are too thin for example), can I somehow send traffic to the CPA offers from the thin sites, VIA the registered site and make it look like it came directly from the registered site?

    You could maybe use double meta refresh, so that your first (thin) site comes unseen.. Don't know if this helps :)

    ^^Thanks, I will look that up, thats sort of what I was thinking - like perhaps linking to a php page on the site that loads, and then redirects to the tracking link for the CPA offer. Would that would or do I need to redirect to another PHP page, then the tracking link?

    Why don't you place your tracking link on that PHP page? On that site?

    Basically your thin site won't be seen in network with DMR, so you can directly place it there :)

    ^^ whats DMR?
    My issue is, the Affiliate site only accepts traffic from sites that are approved, so if I have visitors coming to another site, then I wont get comms if they see the link coming from that site. It has to come from my registered site to be counted.

    thin site click -> page on your approved site -> 301 page to aff link

    have some intext links to your 301'd page randomly positioned within your content... or don't... they can only see the traffic as coming from your page and I doubt they'll start snooping around on your site :)

    Thanks, exactly what I was looking for!
    So basically, a link from my thin site to a normal static page on my approved site (no meta refresh or anything). Then a 301 from htaccess that forwards that page directly to the affiliate link?

    there's no htaccess needed unless you want to go deeper with the cloaking of your traffic from random visitors...

    if you want to do it as simple as possible get something like this -> http://wordpress.org/plugins/quick-pagepost-redirect-plugin

    if you want to do it as safe as possible do it from htaccess and redirect any outside traffic to that page onto your aff link but this might be a problem if your network accesses the URL of your page directly and not through a link on your domain. In this case you should just redirect the traffic coming from your thin sites to that link and still have some content on that page.... if i remember my htaccess syntax correctly it's something like this

    Code:
    RewriteCond %{http_referer} ^http://([^.]+.)*(site_that_is_not_approved).com
    RewriteRule ^$ afflink [R=302,L]
