    Would my affiliate be able to figure out where the traffic was coming from if I was to use an iFrame with a double meta refresh like this.

    I have my main website here w/ an incentive signup offer. (BH Leads)

    That is why I don't want my AM to find out.

    http://LinkIDontWantMyAMtoSee.com
    in the html of this site I would setup an iframe like the following.

    <iframe src ="http://blahblahblah.com/offer.php" width="800" height="800px">
    </iframe>

    The PHP code of the offer.php would be

    <meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=http://blahblahblah.com/offers1.php">

    The PHP code of the offer1.php would be

    <meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=http://blahblahblah.com/offers2.php">

    The PHP code of the offer2.php would be

    <meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=http://AffiliateSignupLink">

    Would this work the same as blanking the referrer or would my AM still find out about the original link. (http://LinkIDontWantMyAMtoSee.com)

    I just read somewhere that this would work as blanking the referrer through an iframe, but it would only work in Firefox and not IE, can anyone confirm?

    I'd recommend to fake the referrer instead of blanking it.
    Better to be safe than sorry. DMR is not very safe...
    just my two cents

    Interesting. I'll look into cpa redirector. Any other scripts that do the same thing, or is that the best one out there?

    This is really a stupid question...why would you want to fake your page?

    Why not have a iframe put on the same page as where you have the original banner sitting on the page with the rest of the site looking the same...

    ok, wait, dont think I explained thaqt properly. let me try again:

    I have a page that is part of my site with an email submit form iframed that says something like "hide your email address" as if it was a hacking site, but all over the page I would have various banners, adverts etc, in the same format as the rest of the site. So how wiill the AM know the person didn't click on the banner instead of flling in the iframe form?

    To answer the above question, you aren't faking your page, you are faking the referrer of the lead. This s a very technical process, so the best advice I can give you is to read up on Brad's post about CPA Redirector - after all, he created it and knows more about it than anyone else!

    Just use the search feature to find it - should be easy to find
