    I'm getting a new adwords account after getting banned. My new CC was accepted but I want to be extra careful about google seeing my Affiliate IDs.

    Anybody know how to really hide them? Im using wordpress. Thanks in advance.

    Download the "Link Cloaking Plugin" by Janis Elsts. This thing is a life saver.

    You could also use Prosper 202. It has 3 benefits:-

    1. Helps you determine your ROI
    2. Helps you determine your Ad Copy effectiveness
    3. Saves you from a Ban.

    good luck gents. I had a htaccess redirect, so I was literally linking to www.mysite.com/install.exe

    Didn't fool google for a second.

    seriously, google is in the business of scraping data from websites. they'll follow you're ten billion redirects to find out where a link is going.

    just get a new CPA account. hell, tell your aff manager what happend and why you need it and they'll probably be more then happy to get you switched up.

    I agree. Will consult AFF managers about new AFF IDs. Better to be safe.

    Were you promoting CPA offers or anything deemed bad in Google's eyes? It;s a bit strange that I hear of some affiates opening new accounts with the same AFF offers and Pub IDs without problem.
