    Hi Im new to affiliate marketing. I have great traffic to my affiliate links. I don't know if I'm just being paranoid, but I worry about the affiliate company stealing my method by following my links.
    Anyone else worry about this?

    Do you think I should find away to spoof or blank my reffers? Is this common?

    The affiliate program I use is revshare so I don't think they'd be too concerned about not seeing the traffic quality. any spoofing methods please let me know

    thanks

    Why don't you use your own landing page to push the traffic to and forward them from there.

    Thanks, this was a confident answer I was looking for. Is there a spoofing/blanking method you can recommend? I've looked and nothing seems 100% effective

    One good reason to do this is because if your don't you will be giving your partners your methods for driving converting traffic, they will then take your traffic stream and methods used to drive the converting traffic. This will drive your profits down. There are other good reasons to do this as well, but no reason to go into them all. Just make sure your doing it.
