    Is it possible to store a cookie on someones computer when they visit your site, so whenever they visit a different site they're redirected to another?

    Example:

    1. They visit my site (http://www.example.com)
    2. I store a cookie which says that if they go to google.com, redirect them to ask.com
    3. They visits google.com and are redirected to ask.com

    on a more serious note, no cookies are little text files that are read by the site who sets them usually. if they go to google.com, then google.com must be able to 1) read your cookie, and 2) have code to redirect based on the content.

    there are other ways to do what you want, mainly using techinques like the "malware" companies who make ads appear on certain sites.

    Haha, I was planning on sending them to related offers when they go to common sites like ebay, facebook, google.

    Oh well...

    Hmm this could be useful. How does this work?

    I wouldn't even attempt to talk about that if I were you guys. You'll get a ban quicker than you can spell it.

    No, I'm not saying you can't talk about ways to make it happen, just so long as it doesn't involve installing malicious software (I'm not a mod, so I don't even know if I'm right, I'm just saying it would probably be better off to either A: ask a mod if it's alright or B: talk about a different way to achieve what you're looking to do...which I don't know of.)
