    Say i got some affiliate link and i purchased some new domain from godaddy redirected (using redirect option in godaddy panel) this new domain to my affiliate link. Now say i paid for some traffic to my new domain, now when i check my stats in statcounter it will show the site as referral (from where i purchased the traffic).

    Now my question is how can i hide this referral site info?

    Thanks.

    why don't you direct them to your site and meta-refresh to your aff link? that should show your site as the referrer then (i think).

    will this show the referrer as cloaked link or from my website? Do you know if affiliate programs have a problem with this.

    Is there a way to hide a link on your site whereas when a visitor hoovers over your link they never see your actual link.

    i just use a php redirect script and if you provide enough content on the page and you place the link correctly you get direct affiliate links indexed on google.

    Code:
    <?php
    header( 'Location: http://yourafflink.com/12345' ) ;
    ?>
    Copy that code and place in notepad name it whatever you like. Lets say you named it afflink.php <<<<its going to need a php extentsion for it to work save the file as all files not a txt file.

    you can upload in a link directory or on the the main public.html folder....

    then just make your affiliate link on your site like these hXXp://yoursite.c0m/afflink.php or hXXp://yoursite.c0m/links/afflink.php or the name of the directory the afflink is in.

    Its a old trick but it works for me. You can even stuff cookies with this script but you need to add more code to it.

    http://cloakedlink.com hides the link, but is there any way to hide the site when it actually redirects so that instead of it going cloakedlink-->mysite.com it will go cloakedlink-->cloakedlink

    It will hide any referrer information. The site that you visit won't see your url or cloakedlink.com in the referrer field.

    Interesting...The free service does that..but leaves "This URL cloaked for free at My Ad Explosion - Get Your Own Today" at the top of the page.Does the pro version remove this.?

    Thanks.

    referrers are set in the browser. You have to send the person somewhere with a meta refresh, javascript redirect, or something similar to change the referrer browser side.

    is there a script like http://cloakedlink.com that i can install on my own server? so i can use it with a diffrent URL? like for example if i had a bunch of links to different sites that i don't want to pass on any PR or such...having something like cloakedlink.com on my own server would be alot easier to use.

    I tested it one week ago.
    Cloaked a clickbank link.
    Grabbed the new link..seemed to work fine.
    I forced my brother to purchase a $7 ebook on chicken recipesthrough my new cloaked link.
    No credit ever appeared in my clickbank account.
    I wrote to eazyeuros and they were "amazed" it didnt work.
    They told me to test it again.
    I dont think so..I mean how many different ways are there to cook a chicken.
    Is there not one real company/software that I can just pay and join and really cloak my url and have some form of stats on referral url/search terms...

    I use a neat little script called: Red*irect Ma*gic:

    Code:
    hxxp://www.redirectmagic.c0m
    It will cloak your affiliate link if you like... It also tracks all clicks.
