    And I already know about ViralURL and honestly, they're having a hard time keeping the site up, so what I want is a server side application that I can run from my own host that will cloak links and track hits.

    I'm open to all suggestions, but would prefer something I can do myself, instead of relying on someone else. ;)

    You could try adtrackz, which is wonderful once you get it installed and working correctly.

    do you use adtrackz to hide the referrer as well

    I'm told that by changing some lines of code on the redirect file it will do this as well

    and what are the potential problems when installing?

    all the best

    1. yes

    2. the install is pretty straightforward if you're not a complete script install noob, but as I said elsewhere, he doesn't seem to support it very well so if you have a problem as I did (my server was using a newer version of php and I required an update of adtrackz) you may have some trouble getting him to help you fix it.

    Vivica, thanks for the suggestion, but I'm looking for a "free" option. I'm not willing to pay for this unless there is no other alternative. ;)

    Look at this:

    hxxp://warri0rf0rum.c0m/for*um/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=264*455


    There is a video showing how it works. Book is good too.

    The guy is very likely a member here - so I wouldn't put this in the downloads.

    Well worth the price CHEAP!!!

    It would be perfect for me except it doesn't hide the referrer url.

    can you tell the code that I need to amend redirect dot php in adtrackz so I am then using a meta refresh please?

    I've been told it only maybe 1 or 2 lines of code

    Offto(dot)net is free and gives you a tracking code. It shows up as the referer in all my aff. stats.

    OffTo looks like a good on-line solution. I'll give them a try and see how it goes. Thanks CyberDilemma. ;)
