I think I have found a way to cloak a link and when the user clicks it he will get directed to example.com (instead of example.com/?id=affname) and you would still be able to claim the referral. As you might have guessed this involves the usage of the 101 method of cookie stuffing. Now I know that cookie stuffing is seen as a major break in the affiliate conduct, but its usage here would actually be legitimate. You're not stealing anyone's sale and you make the sale yourself (the user does click your link). My question is: Would the affiliate managers in general see it the same way, or if you would get caught you would get the boot? Regards, George P.S. This is my first post here on BHW. A big hello to all the people here.
