    i saw this ad:

    [​IMG]

    I clicked on it and went here

    [​IMG]

    At the bottom it says ad advertised on.

    The URL said it was alabamaearinstitute but then it took you to the website there. I believe this was done to establish credibility and then take you to another website.

    Whoever it is really isn't smart enough to cloak and track their affiliate links. =)

    It will have been done to get approval from the ppc network it was advertised on.

    Say adwords for instance don't really like affiliate direct linking, so the trustworthy site gets approved, and then the cloaking kicks in for the rest of the campaign.

    I may add: Google tends to discover this kind of "cloaking" pretty fast and the adwords account is toast. So, a pretty tedious way to make money, you steadily need new adwords accounts.

    Would it be possible for someone here to explain how they did that? I went to alabamaearinstitute.com and it didn't redirect.

    I'll be interested in seeing how long this Adwords account lasts.

    Don't promote it Tinnitus has no cure, don't give false hope to someone who is suffering from it.

    I am suffering from Tinnitus, i know the pain how it feels to continue ringing in the ears.
