    So as you can see I sent them to page one, which after 3 seconds did a meta refresh to page 2, on page 2 they click a link which brought them to page 3, on page 3 there was a meta refresh that instantly brought them to page 4, and on page 4 there was another instant meta to bring them to the offer page but first through tinyurl.

    I was kicked out of a program today for this--- but I thought it was undetectable... They did not send me any emails saying there was an issue with the blank referrer...

    What can I do from here?

    Thanks :)

    Well I only used that to cover my tracks?... or I could say to keep the companies from knowing my source of traffic right?



    Edit// I dont mind setting up a landing page for the company to see, but they just completely dropped me without any fair warning? is this normal?

    Yes it is trackable! If you want something that is less trackable you need to do it server side with a little of PHP ;-)

    This is what im using right now.

    Page 1 (Sending traffic to):
    Code:
    <?php
    $number_of_days = 7 ;
    $date_of_expiry = time() + 60 * 60 * 24 * $number_of_days ;
    $ip=$_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'];
    setcookie( "visit",$ip, $date_of_expiry );
    header( 'Location:http://yoursite.net/index.php' );
    ?>
    
    Index file

    Code:
    <?php
    if($_COOKIE['visit']){
    // Insert code that visitors you sent to the first link will see
    }else{
    // Insert code that visitors will see if they weren't sent to that link (ie AM checking your site)
    }
    ?>
    

    Not exactly sure if this is what you were looking for, might as well post it though.

    zensiq did they give you a reason as to why they kicked you out?

    Were redirects against their TOS or was something else going on?
