    Hey Guys,

    If my intention is to mask my affiliate link with a cloaker and since i'm using a double metarefresh too, is it advisable to redirect my metarefresh to a cloaked link?

    I am not trying to blank my referrer just making sure that I mask my traffic for sure.

    You don't need to use a double refresh if all you want is just mask the link. You can use a cloaker or one of your already existing domains and use a redirect on it, either through the cpanel or through code in your page.

    If you did want to blank the referer you could use a cloaker combined with a double meta refresh to make sure you got it covered, much like a woman taking a pill and me putting a condom. No diseases, no kids. Adding unnecessary redirections and refreshes makes the user have to wait for a page to load and that could possibly mean a lost costumer and one less commission for you.

    If you're using a php meta refresh, you will not need to cloak your links as the link will not be seen in the source code.

    offto.net is one, just add your links and it will mask it. works like a charm for me. :)
